This happened to me this morning and I did this. I found my daughters sock in the trap. After fixing I drained the load and started again. Works great. Bosch E04 Solution:

  1. 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, I can't say! I'd guess you could get wet.
  2. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)
  3. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.
  4. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole to 6'oclock and it should come free.
  5. Once the door out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hands. There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where I held my wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded. Take your time and keep unscrewing it until it is free.
  6. Pull out the trap that you just unscrewed and you'll most likely see the item that caused the E04 error code. There is an side of the trap that is marked that it needs to be installed facing downward, so watch for that when you put it back in.
  7. Read these directiosn upside down and backwards to put it all back together.
  8. Run a load and watch for leaks. You could leave the door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight enough.

What is error code e04 bosch front loader washer


The "E04" error code on your Bosch washer refers to a drainage problem as you may or may not already know. ( it can mean door lock error, but that is usually a by-product of it not draining )

What you may have is either a partially clogged pump, or a faulty pump...the later being the least likely

What is error code E04 on hoover washer


E:04" on the washing machine. Check to ensure there is no water in the tub. This is a common error often associated with too many suds blocking the pump. It is caused by using the wrong laundry detergent which is not designed for high-efficiency washers. You can adjust your use of detergent and reset the machine to eliminate the error code.

E04 Error


E04 is a time out on the heating phase, to confirm this run a cold cycle, if the machine completes the cycle but sticks on any program above 40 degrees, best bet it's a faulty heating element.

We are getting error message E04 on our Bosch front loading machine and it won't drain and it makes a grinding sound.


We removed the round panel in the front and there was a knee hi stocking stuck in the filter - great advice - it's fixed and working perfectly.
