I own a Bosch Axxis front load washing machine. Model

Customer Question

Hi, I own a Bosch Axxis front load washing machine. Model #WAS20160UC/16. The latch that secures the door has become unattached. I can get behind the rubber seal in the washer and can see that the door latch part looks to be in ok shape. I know it's part #612148 (and have a place I can order it from) but I can't see how it reattaches to the machine. There are two small holes that look to be screw holes, but there are no holes in the door latch part to screw into, and there are no screws there. We did not take them out, and can't locate them (assuming they've fallen somewhere). How does the door latch part attach to the machine? Thanks for your help.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: The machine is about 6 years old. Isn't WAS20160UC/16 the model? I also see WNM55. Again, thanks.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes

Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.


There are just two torx screws that hold the door latch in place. They may have fallen out but you will need them
