Question about Bosch Nexxt 300 Series WFMC2201UC

1 Answer

My Bosch 300 series clothes washing machine is leaking alot. It leaks during the initial wash cycle from the lower left side. I have cleaned the detergent tray and it appears fine. I have also opened up the hatch to the drain pump. I did retrieve a 1 dollar and 75 cents from there along with alot of sand. Cleaned it all out but it is still leaking from the lower left corner. I have manually poured water into the detergent compartment to make sure that it was obstructed and it did drain into the machine like it should. Can anyone help me know where to look next? Everything else works fine, it just leaks all over the floor.

The detergent dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water enterence and distribution to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle)are done by a lever's movment (part of the dispenser). The lever movment is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By openning upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Dissconect the power cable from the machine before moving to next tests !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movment). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test by a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!

SOURCE: Bosch nexxt washer is leaking from underneath

All the things that greendude said plus check the seams inside the drum as if these have even slightly parted it could cause the leak you're describing. Good luck.

SOURCE: Bosch maxx classic washing machine doesn't clean clothes

There are a lot of things to consider when trying to solve this problem. Obviously a front loader washes differently than a top loader. Top loaders tend to using a washing motion that is good for stains but wear out your clothes fast. Front loaders typically use less water and wash more gently, but in some ways still do better than top loaders. Anyway, think about any other variables that go into the laundry equation. Consider the distance the machine is from your water heater. This machine will use MUCH less water to fill than your old one, and, you know how when you turn a faucet on hot it takes a minute for the hot water to actually get there? It's the same way with your machine. If there's a sink next your washer, you should always turn on the hot water on the faucet until it gets hot right before you start the machine. The same goes for dishwashers. If there's not a sink close you can easily turn up the temperature for all hot water on your water heater, although that will use more energy.
Consider what detergent you're using. If you're using high efficiency detergent (like Tide he) maybe you should switch to your old brand. If you're using your old brand of detergent, try getting a high efficiency detergent.

SOURCE: My Bosch Classixx washer dryer has stopped drying

if you have a very large load of clothes in the machine on the dry cycle, what tends to happen is that the clothes are not flapping around in the drum loosely but they are going around the drum in a big mass, with the result that they just get very very hot and steam will escape out the soapbox draw. When this happens, heater unit that becomes overheated ant the thermostats will eventualy cut out resulting in cold air being circulated instead of hot. You will need to have them replaced again. when replaced, put on a drycycle with only a few garments in the machine and you will see a big difference in it perfomance. washer/dryers are not very effective on the drying cycles with a full washload.

Why is my maytag 2000 washing machine leaking from underneath when it is only 2-1/2 years old


You need to establish the area that you have seen the water pooling and trace it back if possible.Make sure you disconnect the machine from the power point before you conduct these checks. Is the water clean, dirty or oil contaminated. if you can't determine exactly where the leak is coming from try placing a chux cloth around a hose with a cable tie before a wash then check it on the completion of the cycle - make sure the chux cloth does not effect the operation of the machine.

Won't finish the wash cycle


Initially we 1)used less detergent and make sure its marked 'he' . extra soap suds initiates error codes. 2) ran white vinegar with no detergent to clear suds 3) opened, checked and cleared trap.
Everything worked for a time but codes would return or like you would not finish wash cycle until water line in back of machine was made rigid so there was no chance of water or sud backup. So far so good. Good luck.

Washer is leaking water out from underneath during cycle


Ours had a problem with water sloshing out of the soap cup during the cycle. The leak appeared under the left front. The fix was to remove the cup and just pour the soap into that section of the drawer. The only problem withthis is that you cannot add soap after you add the soap.

Water left after finishing wash


I have a Bosch Dishwasher and the E-Nr is SGS4362EU/03. The machine is approximately 4 years old, in good condition and has been working very well. Suddenly, there is water remaining after it completes a 50 degrees C wash cycle. This is also evident with the pre wash cycle and the 65 degrees wash cycle.

I have checked and cleaned the filters. I have loosened the internal pump white cover (Torx T 20 screw) and checked for any physical blockage - none. I have also checked for any drainage hose kinks - none.

I have tried a series of empty washes and the machine drains the water during the wash cycles. The dishes are also have a dull colour and show show signs of not being properly rinsed during the wash cycle.

Please assist.

Reagrds,

Brian

Leak


It sounds like you have a leak somewhere around the door bellow. This is the rubber boot that seals the wash tub to the door frame. Pull the folds back and inspect around the entire perimeter of the rubber. You could have a small rip or tear somewhere. There are a series of small holes in the bottom of the bellow that are supposed to be there. This is the allow any standing water to drain back into the wash tub. If you cannot find any obvious signs of leaks, remove the lower panel under the door. This is accomplished by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Start the washer on a normal wash and watch for any leaks. If the door bellow leaks, the front counterweight (usually a concrete block) will begin to get wet and drip. This could also be an indication of the bellow clamp around the wash tub being loose. If the leak starts to pool under the washer and run out the front, this is usually an indication of a drain pump leak or drain line leak. Please inspect the washer with the panel removed and the washer on a load and post back and let me know. Go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature for a quicker response. I hope this helps you.

PS One other item. On the left hand side of the door bellow is the a dispenser tube that penetrates through the bellow and allows water to enter the wash tub. Sometimes the dispenser tube is not seated all the way into the rubber (should be seated past the flange) and it will dispense water behind the rubber instead of into the wash tub. Just something else to consider...

Sounds like the dispenser is leaking somehow, there is no filter that would cause it to leak. Remove lid of washer by screws on back lip and inspect during fill to see where leak is.
