Leaking Fluff Filter

Recommended Posts

I have a bosch classics 1400 express washing machine, model number WFO2867GB/17. I had to buy a new fluff filter broke the original one trying to get it out, had something stuck in the back of it. The new one is leaking at the bottom. Any suggestions or is it time for a new machine?

Thanks in advance.

If there is no crack or break on the filter and it leaks I would remove the filter and thoroughly clean everything around where it fits, especially if there's a rubber seal around it. Even a small bit of grit that gets between the rubber seal and the plastic housing could cause a small leak.
