Hi All,

I have a Bosch Nexxt 500, WFMC3301UC that runs and washes fine, but each night the tub slowly fills with water. I have to run the "drain" mode on the daily manually each morning to clear the tub. The tub is clear after each wash, so i suspect there is some valve that is not closing fully letting my cold water past slowly filling the stainless tub. There are no leaks under the washer that i have noticed. If i turn off the cold water valve at the wall then the tub does not fill overnight (its a slow fill).

Does anybody know which part this might be? Thanks!

Hi,

Yes, the problem is the cold water inlet valve solenoid is not closing all the way, thus it keeps filling your tub while not in use.

Here's the cold water inlet valve for your model you can order:
