Bosch washer leaking near soap dispensor
Model Number: WFL 2060 VC Brand:
5 - 10 years
We have a Bosch WFL 260 VC clothes washer, 6+ years old.After 4 years of it working reasonably well and one $250.00 repair, the area ofthe cabinet above the soap drawer developed some rust. The drawer was closingok and did not seem to be leaking. I thought that water was splashing on thisarea when filling. We started to notice a pool of water on the floor on thesame side (left front) as the soap drawer. After inspecting below water is nowdripping below the frame along the front edge, still on the left side sometimestoward the middle of the cabinet frame. I checked the hose connections andpulled the cleanout for the pump impellor and that area (on the right) is dry.
This problem is not as bad with a small load. With a full load,or when we load the machine about half full, it leaks up to a pint of water.This laundry is on our main floor level which is wood floor joists. Thankfullywhen I build the laundry, I installed linoleum and sealed all the joints tohelp stop minor leak damage like this.
