My brand new Bosch Series 6 Washer/Dryer is spitting foam out of the plug hole in my kitchen sink.

I'm guessing a blocked pipe of some kind, but I'm no engineery type.

Any ideas?

I've heard this is very effective at dealing with problems, though it might not fix your machine.

I'll give you a top tip with washing machines.

 

Before you start poking around inside, unplug them from the wall.

 

As for your problem, you have a blockage downstream of wherever the washing machine waste joins the sink waste.

Try some drain unblocker, you can buy them in any supermarket

Put superglue on your plug and place in sink. Foam will not come out anymore :trollface:

 

On a more serious note, is the drain connented to the reverse cup? Could be the diameter of pipe is a bit small for your new washer. If it starts with a new/replaced system contaminations are not the most likely problem, otherwise you would have seen it with previous one as well

Typical Dinger, it's too much premium soap, put less in the machine noob. :teethhappy:

Start by unscrewing the trap cap directly under your sink. It's a kinda bulb/cone shaped plastic thingy. Keep a bucket underneath. Wash it in a different sink, fill it with niagara-500 or similar *solid* industrial drain cleaner and screw back on. Run tap on hot. Turn off when about to overflow.

Follow situation. If unsatisfactory you'll need tools like a thin wire. If that doesn't help you need to start removing pipe parts. If still no luck i'd call a plumber.

It's only spitting foam, if the pipe was blocked water would be coming up the plughole!

All the more reason to start doing something about it before it's clogged for real. 

 

Once a plumber starts talking about reverse flushing the pipes you know the bill is going to get quite high from there on.

Little bit of both - put some monster strength pipe cleaner down the sink & it seemed to do the trick.

Thanks for asking:)
