After searching your forum for a repair manual and not finding what I needed, I decided to wing it. I watched several videos this morning trying to find a Bosch model that looked like mine and couldn't find one. We removed my rubber door seal. I removed the door, the top panel that is screwed to the back of the appliance, the control panel that is on the top of the appliance and the front panel that covers the area with the pump. I don't have an access panel on the bottom like the newer models, so removing all that is necessary to gain access to the pump. The control panel of course has wiring attached to it so I just gently tipped it back to rest on the top of the machine. When you remove the front panel there is a green line that runs down to the pump from another control that has wiring connected to it and I slid that out of its slot so I could remove the front panel completely. Once I got that off the pump was very easy to remove. The pump that I got for my machine was slightly different than the old one but essentially slips right in to place with the exception of an extra hose that the parts store already had capped off for me. I hooked up the power and clamped on my hoses. Put it back together and prayed to the appliance gods! I am happy to say its up and running again. I got a high five from my husband when it started to drain. He was an awesome help when I needed a little muscle to move the machine and get the gasket back on.
I called my local parts place to get the pump by giving my model #. You can check out a photo of the pump I used. I bought the pump at AppliancePartsPros because they have a one year, no-hassle return policy (and they are affiliated with this awesome site!): Part number: 436440
Feeling pretty good right now!
