Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

About 8 years old. Will have to go get the exact model no. if you still need it

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, I would like to give it a try

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The machine is in excellent condition and has been a good work horse. The message board is indicating that it has a drainage blockage

Do you see the small round panel? There is a small hole in it. Just get a small pick or tool and gently press in that hole just a little ways and turn it counterclowise it should release. If not let me know.

All I ask is please use the....FINISH BY RATING link at the top your page to select a 5 STAR RATING before leaving today....this is important for my status on the site plus without a rating I will receive ZERO credit(NO PAY) from the site for assisting you.
