    We have a Siemens version of trhe Bosch washers and it has the same problem. The error code E13 has come up and the machine will not spin. It also is emitting a smell like that if lightly buring rubber or even electical insulation burning, but lightly. I have not found any solution yet. I would love to know what this is.

    I wood like to get a repair manual on replacing the pump

  • cwill22014 Jan 29, 2009

    The washer stops at the spin cycle and makes a humming sound. There remains some water in the washer and I cannot engage the drain cycle either.

I don't know if this will solve everyone's problem but I found the problem in my machine. I found a SHOUT color catcher stuck in the impeller of the drain pump in the bottom of the machine. If you remove the round face plate covering the drain plug and then unscrew the drain cover you can access the little pump impeller. I found the 5" x 10" color catch sheet stuck and impeding the rotation of the impeller. Once I removed it, reset the machine, reinstalled the drain cover and outer cover and restarted the machine, it worked fine.

We use alot of these color catchers and have never had this problem before. But as they say, there is a first for everything.

Steps to repair:

  1. Unplug the machine
  2. Lift an edge of the round face plate covering the drain on the lower right corner of the face of the machine. Then rotate it clockwise about 1/8 of a turn. Remove the face plate.
  3. If you are sure your machine is empty you can simply unscrew the drain plug which is a roughly 4" round plug with a handle molded into it. I had standing water in my machine so I vacuumed out the water first then held the vacuum at the opening of the drain plug and slowly unscrewed the plug letting the water get sucked up . This took about 5 minutes just to drain this drain trap.
  4. Unscrew the drain plug (if you haven't done it already)
  5. You have to fully unscrew the drain plug then pull on the plug a bit to get it to come out.
  6. Examine and remove any debris you find in the drain trap. (In my case, this where I found the color catcher stuck up in the impeller of the pump which is toward the middle at the bottom of the drain.)
  7. Reinstall and snug the Drain plug. To do this you need to properly orient the plug to get it to go in correctly. You have to wiggle it alittle as well.
  8. MAKE SURE THE PLUG IS SNUG OR IT WILL LEAK!
  9. Double-check the security of the plug
  10. Reinstall the face plate by orienting the tabs on the cover and rotate in place counter-clockwise.
I hope this helps some of you out there.

    I just fixed my washer !!!

    Thanks for your input. Mine had a rubber band wrapped around the impeller. That .01 cent rubber band would have cost me a $100 service call...

    Thanks so much for relating how you fixed your machine.

My manuel says E-13 means too much suds or a blocked pump. The "Solution" it gives is to push any program button and run the cycle again. A door locked can be manually unlocked by removing the circular access panel at the bottom right and pulling the manual release button. Hope this helps.

OK, I have the Nexxt 300 series. Throwing the E-13 code. My machine is less than a year old so I called the authorized Bosch repair service. ( I have replaced pumps in washers, but hey it still under warranty).
Anyway, he checked the pump and it was clear. My machine is working perfectly. What's the solution? Unplug the machine for a few minutes. According to the repair guy more and more appliances just need to be unplugged so to reboot the computer whenever they are acting funky.
All in all this should be the first thing you try when you have this issue. After that I would go through the processes of the first solution on this page.

We had similar problem, with the spin cycle not working. We opened the 'drain' pipe (front-right bottom side). It was full of lime scale; never been opened for years. We cleaned it up and the spin cycle is now working.

SOURCE: Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Why do my machine flashes red lights when pluged in AC and nothing else works ?


Replace doorlock and mainboard.
If all five spin cycle buttons flash, its a fatal error.
It depens on which wash button that ligths up.
One of them is doorlock error, the other is main board error

Fills with water then does not rotate, also does not spin


Check for large items of clothes being tangled if the Bosch washing machine doesn't spin. The weight could not be evenly distributed in the drum and the spin cycle will have been disabled to prevent damage to the clothes..

Load the drum with large and small clothes together and run the entire washing cycle and spin cycle again.

Add more powder and run the entire washing and spin cycle again if you haven't found tangled large items, but the spin cycle still failed. This indicates the amount of cloths was too small.

Add 1 tablespoon of fabric softener to 1 pint of water and pour it into the main detergent dispenser if there's no tangling and the load was a normal size. The cause would have been excessive suds because of too much, or the wrong kind, of detergent. Use HE (High Efficiency) detergent in Bosch washing machines.
