Good morning, we have a Bosch wta31 tumble dryer. The warning

Resolved Question:

Good morning, we have a Bosch wta31 tumble dryer. The warning saying 'check the filter' keeps coming up even through the filter is clean. We have had an engineer round before with the same issue and he removed a tray somewhere at the back of the machine which was full of dirty water. I would like to clean the same thing myself. Can you let me know where this is and how to access it please?

Hi, welcome to Just answer ....the water pump is located in the bottom just behind the left panel... you can easily take it out from the top as the hinges are at the bottom. Also after you have removed that pump take out the panel with a screwdriver to gain access to sump...make sure this sump is cleaned completely...after cleaning all this the problem should be solved, let me know how it goes.________________________________________________________________________________________If you have further questions I will be pleased to assist you .. Please remember to RATE my answer Excellent or Good Service when you are satisfied....Thanks

When you say left panel, is that left as you look at the front of the machine? Also, to access the pump from the 'top' do you mean the top panel ie take the 'lid' off and is the sump panel underneath the pump? Thanks

yes its the left at the back ... by top I mean after you remove the panel..there are hinges inside the panel at the bottom

Once again sorry for long delay in answering your question...have been out for a while.Thanks for the info... with the appliance unplugged take off the top and side panels...to do this you will have to remove the screw then follow the drain hose to the pump...take this pump out and clean it completely ...once everything is clean it should work.
