My Bosch washing machine won't drain.Its a Classicxx 7 machine 5 years old.I'm 88 and not to bright with things that break down, but will try to fix it myself.

Sorry to hear your having issues, the most likely issue is a blocked filter which is located at the bottom right of the washer.

Openn the flap this will reveal a large cap you need to unscrew, however before doing so use the little hose to the side within the cap to drain water into a bowl, and put down a towel as there will be water which will come out as you unscrew the cap. Once unscrewed, wash the filter under the tap then, use your fingers to check nothing is stuck inside of the void (hair pins, paper clips etc), then screw the filter cap back in place and run the washer on a rinse cycle to check everything is working again.

Let me know how you get on.
