Perhaps try opening the round panel on the front of the machine at the bottom and cleaning that hose...good luck because it might be messy.

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.

What does the E04 error code mean?


E04 means that you are not draining quick enough, if you are using HE detergant then your drain line is probably clogged. There is a round access panel on the lower right corner of your washer. If you stick a small screwdriver through the tiny little hole on this panel and twist the panel off you will see the drain pump catch. You can twist this cap off by hand and remove all the debris inside. WATCH OUT a lot of water will be coming through.

Got an E04 messege (not the first). Set the washer to drain and it makes a horrible noise. Water won't drain out. Some E04's in the past have been accompanied by a rubber burning smell, but not...


The problem maybe the pressure switch if you have a multimeter check for any electrical issues if there is no reading your pressure switch needs to be replaced

BOSCH WFMC3200 Washer - Receiving E04 error and manual indicates clearing drain hose and pipe. How do I remove the cover on lower front of machine?


there is small hole in the cover you need to push a small screwdriver or ice pick works in the hole and then turn clockwise till it comes off.
But there will be some water come out so if you have a wet dry shop vac then use it on the end of the drain hose to remove most of the water then keep it handy when you take the plug out there will still be some water come out and you should be able to clena out the trap area

Error code E:13 on my 500 plus series washer


Hi,
The E13 error code on your Bosch washer refer to a drainage problem or the pump time might have been exceeded
Either it might be due to a clogged pump, improper detergent being used, ( must use "HE" detergent ) hence suds not allowing a proper drain cycle. You should clean water drainage pipe and/or drain hose. Turn selector to off and restart 'drain, program or, on 500 plus machines, the 'refresh' program. It also says this is caused by using too much detergent. Bosch recommends using half of what the manufacturer recommends when using HE detergents. They don't recommend regular detergents. First run the short wash or refresh cycle without detergent and hopefully your lines will clear.

Thank you !!

My washer has E:13 on the display. I called Bosch


According to the service manual, you should clean water drainage pipe and/or drain hose. Turn selector to off and restart 'drain, program or, on 500 plus machines, the 'refresh' program. It also says this is caused by using too much detergent. Bosch recommends using half of what the manufacturer recommends when using HE detergents. They don't recommend regular detergents. I would run the short wash or refresh cycle without detergent and hopefully your lines will clear. I have also read that if this persists, powder HE detergent is better to use instead of the liquid because of certain chemicals contained in the liquids that cause it to congeal in some front loader drainage pipes. I hope this helps.

Washer stopped. E04 beeps but won't spin or continue any cycle. Have shut off machine but only makes a strange sound.

Error code E04 with a full load of laundry and water in the washer. Unplug the power to the washer. Take off the round cover plate in the front right. Mine did not turn clockwise or counter-clockwise, it was completely stuck. Used two flat tip screwdrivers to carefully pry it away, without damaging anything. The plate is a hard plastic but just pliable enough.
Once removed, you will see the pump (img_0001). Unscrew the pump cover slowly. There will be water coming out, so be prepared. In my case we had a LOT of water, so I drained it gradually into a couple of large garbage bags. Wrap the bag opening tightly against the pump surround to minimize spills (img_0002).
Once all the water is gone, remove the pump cover and clean out any items trapped in the pump and in the drain from the drum (img_0003). In my case it was some loose change and a small ColorCatcher sheet. Reassemble the pump and you're done.
