Bosch WVG30461GB. Removed filter plug to find wire ring broken.


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I removed the filter plug - it needed a lot of force. 

A wire ring that the plug seems to fit inside is now broken. Some bits came out. It's in the picture with white bits on it. 

I could not get the plug to properly fix back in (couldn't get it vertical) and it leaked when I used the machine. This is probably because the wire is in the way. 

Also should the propeller in the filter spin freely? - it doesn't so I'm worried that there's a further blockage. It does move but not spin freely. 

Does anyone know if I can put a new wire ring in myself to hopefully enable the plug to fit properly or do I need to get an engineer to look at it? 

Thanks very much,

Hi. Are you sure that's not an underwear from a bra?

I've never seen a wire as part of the pump and pump filter. Normally you can buy a pump filter, or a complete pump and housing, and nothing else.

If you look for your pump on somewhere like Ransom Spares (link in my sig below) you should be able to see the pump and if it comes with all the housing.
