Just fixed the E:27 error code. Just turn dial to off and hold down delayed start button and spin selector button and turn dial to the left one click (cold). It should then click and open. open the door and turn back to off. Everything should go back to normal. this is something that should have been in the manual.

Bosch E-13 error code is a drain timeout code. This means the pump has run a certian amount of time without fully draining itself.

This could be anything from a clogged drainline in your home to a clogged drainline in the machine, your pump is clogged, pump is burned up, no power to the pumpetc. Most of the time its either something jammed in the pump, or its burned up (from something being jammed in it).

If your model has a filter on the front of the machine, put down plenty of towels and slowly undo the filter. Water will come out. Check to see if its blocked or if the outlet hose is blocked.

The same E13 code on the WFMC series Bosch washer`s refer to a drainage problem, as you may or may not already know. (or in Bosch terms pump time exceeded). Anyway, here`s the most likely way to remedy a E13 code.

Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water, that sucks...hopefully you won't get too wet. ( maybe you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )

1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)
2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.
3. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful).
4. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. ( you should also see a red ring with a string attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first is usually a good plan ) There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out
5. Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap. Hopefully you'll find the item/debris that initiated the error code.
6. After removing any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test.
7. Run a load and watch for leaks. Leave the pump access door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks.

Ultimately you may have a faulty drain pump, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this answer and leave us a testimonial comment)..

E:27 message means that the door locking mechanism has malfunctioned and/or is overheating. Unplug the machine for 30 minutes and try again. If that doesn't solve the problem you need to call the service.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Could there be something in the drain pump lint tray/filter blocking it ? I know your machine is VERY young but you never know ;-0)
Just in case here are my general guidance notes to assist. It is worth while carrying a check out on a regular basis anyway, especially when us males tend to leave things in our pockets!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

the electronics lock out during power surges like you would get from brush failure giving e 21 error. you have to access service test prog to reset this, and it is not in public domain.
i do know how to reset it though but difficult to explain on this forum you may find a you tube video if you search online.

Hi, I know it's kind of a silly thing but when loading the machine make sure nothing is jammed against the dispenser preventing it from opening. I've run into that a few times and people looked at me like I had two heads but when I showed up to look at the machine,it was loaded like thanksgiving dinner was just over. If that is not the issue then it's either the dispenser itself that is broken or it's not getting power from the board. Either problem will require getting into the door of the machine and running a test program. I would call a local appliance repair company as these tests require the machine to be powered up and specific tools. Hope that helps.
