Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

About 5 years. Bosch E-NoWAS2446OUC

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

Yes.

Did have a leak, I repaired it.The parts lists that I find online don't show where this valve is.

Thank you!

It's normally located in the fill hose itself. Does your hose lock anything like this

I think so. But how dose that sence water in the bottom of the washer when there is a leak?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
That hose looks like it has a valve in it to shut off the water if a hose breaks.

It doesn't it controls the flow of water into the machine. Your error code means that your machine is not detecting that it is filling with water. When you get home try disconnecting the fill hose from the machine put it in a bucket and turn the water on to see if water passes through.

Thatis exactly what it does if too much water passes it shuts off to prevent a flood

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

If the hose doesn't pass water through it it will need replacing

But the machine fills with water, runs and then runs a little bit before the error code comes up. The code states that there is water leaking in the bottom of the cabinet.

The thing they fit to detect an actual leak in the base is a polystyrene float that sits in the base of your machine and raises when it leaks tripping a microswitch. If the hose is passing water ok and there are no internal leaks check the height of the drain hose and ensure its not syphoning water that can give the machine the impression it is leaking as the pressure switch picks up a change in water level

Ok, will do. I think they should re-word the error code because "Aqua float switch" is the wrong term and is confusing.

The wording gets much worse for other brands. Let me know how you get on later

Hey Gavin. Found problem. A hose fell off of a micro switch on upper right side of washer. Works good now. There was no Aqua sensor on bottom on this model. Thanks again for your help.
