F16 error code on Bosch Exxcel washer dryer

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.

SOURCE: bosch washing machine won't drain and the door won't open.

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.

SOURCE: door wont open on bosch classixx 6 1400 express washing machine

Hi,
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 !

SOURCE: hi my washing machine bosch

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.

SOURCE: How can I turn off the beep sound on my exxcel

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.

What do's f16 mean on the bosch classixx 6 1200 mean


F16 is a door fault, could be the door is not tightly closed before pressing start, the lock is faulty so the machine is not registering that it is closed or the wiring connection to the door lock is loose.

Why is F16 code flashing up on my bosch avantixx washer dryer


The door is not locked properly.
Open and close the door again and press the "start reload" button (play and pause button). If necessary, open the washing machine door, remove some of the cothing items and then push the door closed again. You can also try switching the washing machine off and on again, setting the programme and then starting the programme.

I have a Bosch Logixx 8 washing machine showing error code 34. What does this mean?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Same as 'F16', 'F34' stands for 'door lock (fault)' ;-0)

This is indicating that there is a problem either with the door lock or the door locked sensor requiring a service call, sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

F16 showing on display


F16 measn a problem with your door lock.

The machine senses the door is open and will stop. The door lock isn't that expensive and should solve your problem. If that doesn't solve it then you may have a faulty control board.

Try the first choice. Good luck.

E-27 blinking


The E27 code isn't often listed in Bosch manuals but relates to the washer door lock.

The E27 error flashes on the washer LCD screen and stops the current load. Unplug your washer for 30 minutes and then plug it back in to reset the code.

Open and close the door two or three times to reset the sensor. Sometimes the door has been closed too hard and the sensor reading fails.

You may need to replace the door lock assembly on the washer.
