Leakage of water through the drain of the washing machine

Consider the essence of the problem. Be sure to distinguish the difference between hoses and nozzles. So:

The drain pipe removes waste water. After washing, a drain pump drains water from the tank through this element. Then, water flows into the sewer system. It is worth noting that in new washing machines the nozzles are always strong and elastic. However, during operation, the material hardens. As a result, the parts tend to crack and leak.

What is the main cause that provokes the flow of the part? The reason for the problem is foreign objects that get into the device. To prevent the 04 the error code in Bosch washing machine, check laundry before washing. To solve the problem, replace the spoiled part.

You can take out a worn out pipe from the appliance bottom. In this case, two options are possible:

The drain pipe has three connections:

For replacement, loosen the clamps of these connections. Then, remove the pipe. Install a new one in its place, suitable for the parameters. Tighten the clamps.

Hatch cuffs leaking

The main reasons for this situation:

To eliminate the breakage, replace the part. The procedure takes the following steps:

  1. Loosen the first clamp. Plastic fasteners are weakened by a latch. Metal one can be stretched by a spring or a screw that needs to be removed. After this, remove the first clamp.
  2. Removal of the front part of the cuff, hold by the special shape and tension of the rubber.
  3. Fixing the cuff position. There is a special mark, placed on the top of the part. Another one is in the tank. If there is no mark, fix its position with a pencil or something.
  4. Removal of the second clamp is a procedure similar to the first stage. The only difference is that the second clamp is more complicated to find. In some cases, you need to remove the front wall of a washing machine.
  5. Complete cuff extraction.

Then install the new part. First, compare the old and the new cuff. Make sure they are identical. The installation of a new element requires the following steps:

  1. Cleaning the edge of the tank from contamination.
  2. Installing the cuff on the tank. In this case, it is necessary to check the coincidence of labels. Prepare to the fact that the rubber will resist, requiring some effort.
  3. Checking the correctness of the installation. There must be no clearances.
  4. Installation of clamps.
