Check that the cap when off is intact, I just opened mine with a plyer and found a sock twirled around the cap feet (has 2 legs and a plastic rim connected to the cap). So you cap might be proken like mine. check it and see.

No need for any special tool for it. It should be closed by hand.

My washer machine leaking water on fill or drain

Hi,you need to pull washing machine out and check filler pipe or pipes are not leeking,and take the lid and back off the machine and when it is leeking use a torch to see more cleerly.

Slight leek on the front

In most cases, leaking is a sign of a clogged drain filter or drain pump. Water backs up and will find the point of least resistance. If you require further assistance, please post back with the make/model of your washer including if it's a top or front load machine.

Asko W6021 Front Load Washer error detected "F3 Outlet Blocked". How to solve this problem?

The drain access is at the bottom left of the washer. Insert a screw driver in the right side of the cut-out and and gently pry open. Open the drain pump. You will need a small container and a towel to help catch the water that will be coming out. After letting all the water out, clean out any objects in the drain pump. After cleaning out drain pump, put everything back together and restart washer.

We bought a front end loader 06-20-2008, It will run through a wash but want drain the water out, it just hums

take off front cover (2) screws at bottom. drain pump is on lower right corner remove hoses (expect water - I use shop vac) take (2) screws holding pump to washer bottom then take pump apart and remove whatever is stuck in impeller. Check hose for blockage before reinstall.( easy job except you are sitting on floor to do it !)

My washer wont drain

Unplug washer, remove bottom front cover, (three phillips head screws at the bottom) unscrew filter and pull out (lower right). Next, remove the very smelly $2.67 in change and a nest of muck. Put every thing back together in reverse order

My washer leeks water from bottom even when its not running and just sitting there. Seems after a wash the water hasn't totally drained out and then slowly starts leeking, actually alot of water is on the...

Have you checked the clamp on the drain hose? It may need tightening. All washers keep a small reserve of water in the bottom of the basket tank. If your drain hose hook is too high from the top of the washer, that much more water will be held below.

Won't finish spin/drain cycle. was beeping and

long drain? remove lower cover on front..3 screws across bottom edge. there is a screw-on cover to a clean out. has a screen in there and may be clogged. prepare for a lot of water..u might lean it back against the wall to limit the mess. clean out is white plastic right up front.

Washing machine is not draining

Your drain pump is probably dead. Advice: do not believe anyone who tells you that it is a pain to replace on BOSCH! I just did it myself in less than 45 minutes and thereby saved about $200.

You need to order the part-> go to the BOSCH website and identify the exact model and part number for your machine. I ordered mine from www.appliancepartspros.com/Bosch-Parts.aspx.

The part arrived at my home this morning-it took 2 business days. I called to double check I had the right part and the CS person was very nice and helpful.

Then, beating the odds I did the following with just a pair of pliers and a screw driver:
1- unplug the washing machine (of course)
2- drain any water that could be left in it using the small black drain hose located behind the front bottom door (probably on the right)
3- lie your washing machine on its back-put a piece of wood long enough to cross the width of your machine and it will save your fingers- you will need some thigh and **** muscles as it is a little heavy (but I am a woman and did it without help)
4- remove the bottom front panel of your washer (2 screws)
5- remove the screw holding your pump (above the filter)
6- lying down on the floor, unplug the wires at the back of the pump"s motor
7- using your pliers loosen the braces that hold each of the 2 hoses, and slide them down along the hoses (easier this way)
8- take out the hoses- the pump will drop into your hand
9- place the new unit by screwing it to the front of the machine's casing
10- plug back the wires
11- reposition the hoses making sure that the braces are tightened around the hose + each of the 2 plastic tubes that stick from the pump
12- tilt your machine back up
13- plug your machine
14- you are ready for your first load adn have saved $200 :-)!

Lg front load washer leaking from bottom of machine

I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)
  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
  3. Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
  4. If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
  5. Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
  6. Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
  7. Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
  8. Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
  9. Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
  10. Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
  11. Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
  12. There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
  13. There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
  14. Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order
