Question about Bosch Washing Machines
My Bosch washer dryer is not working, when I put on a wash the machine beeps and flashes error code F16. F16 is meant to mean the door isn't shutting, however it is shut. On the bottom right there is a filter, I have cleaned out all the water (dial bottom right). Took the foot panel off, there isn't any where to clear put a filter or anything. What do I do next??

SOURCE: faulty door which keeps beeping
I had a similar problem which was resolved by replacing the door interlock switch (cost about £10.00).
To get to it you need to disconnect the mains then remove the top lid. You can then see it by looking down the inside to the right. Remove the 2 screws inside the door opening and you can then lift it out after disconnecting the wiring plug.
Replacement is the reverse of the above, a 5 minute job.

Sounds like you have a blocked pump.To empty the machine manually lower the drain hose into a bowl or bucket.Once emptied the door should open.On most modern machines there will be a filter behind the kick plate at bottom front of machine, Check this for any foreign objects then try a spin before putting on again.If problem persists come for further options.

The "F16" on a Bosch indicates the door is open / unlocked. If it's happening during a wash it would suggest either a faulty door lock, faulty wiring or worse, a faulty main control board. The wash program should halt when this comes up but you should be able to restart it when the door is closed. As the cost of a new door interlock isn't overly expensive. The best way to fix this problem is to purchase a new lock and fit it.
Thank you !

The F4 error code on your washer indicates a problem in the electrical circuits of the washer... and not end-user repairable.
This problem requires a technician to test the wiring circuits to diagnose the problem.

I've just found my instruction manual and managed to turn the volume off on mine after 6 months of annoying beeping.
You turn the programme selector to off then turn it one programme to the right, press the rpm button and keep it pressed while turning one more programme to the right, release them both and a number should be displayed on screen I think volume 2 is the default one. You then click the "ready in" button until desired volume is reached. You have a chioce of zero through to four. After volume is set turn programme selector to off position. The annoying beep should be no more!! Hope this helps others.
