Bosch Nexxt DLX leaking water onto floor...any ideas?
The repair guy is coming later in the week, but I'm trying to figure out if there's anything obvious we've missed that we can try in the interim.
Our four-year-old Bosch Nexxt DLX (500 series) front loader suddenly started pooling small amounts of water under it. (Not a load's worth of water, but enough to thoroughly wet a towel.) It's running fine with no error codes---only issue is that there is obviously not supposed to be water on the floor! We've tested various connections and eliminated the house supply line and drain as the source; it's coming from within the washer, and it continues when the washer is off (but the supply is on---stops when we turn the water off). Supply and drain hoses have no obvious leaks or flaws. Door seal is fine and it doesn't look to be a problem with the soap dispenser that the repair guy had us check. It looks like it's coming from the lower right connector on the back that was used for the transport bolts (not sure what this would connect to inside that would leak).
Our best guess is something to do with an internal valve for the supply line (puzzled by how else water would be getting into the machine when it's off?) but of course that doesn't seem to be covered by any of the suggested solutions for this problem in the repair manual. ;) Also doesn't explain how/why the water would end up outside of the machine, though.
Does this sound at all familiar to anyone? The machine is in our garage which floods in the rainy season anyway, so we're completely open to playing around with it to see if we can better pinpoint the source and circumstances that trigger it. Any ideas? Thanks!
