Customer Question

I have a Bosch Maxx Classic about 10 years old. About half the time the machine leaks water on the floor when washing. It seems to be particularly if there is a heavy load being washed. I also wondered if I should be cleaning lint out of the machine like I used to with my previous top loader but cannot find any instructions that would do that.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

The most common cause of leakage is a hole in the rubber door boot. If you stretch it out in all directions, do you see any tears or holes in it, even at the top and sides?

Hello, I see this question is still open and I was just following up to see if you require further assistance.

Hi Kelly
Thank you for your suggestion, however I am not confident that this will solve my problem. The leakage does not appear to be from the door more probably from under the machine but when I last used it there was no leakage.I did try to examine the rubber door boot but could not 'stretch it out much' or see any tears or holes. I am assuming the rubber door boot is the rubber seal. I will need to observe the machine when it leaks again, probably when I was towels or linen.
