Bosch exxcel maxx freedom washer dryer filter will not open

Problem code F04 appears and water will not drain in drying cycle. I understand filter needs to be cleaned but it only opens half way and I can't open it properly. Do you know why that is? Can you suggest how I get the filter open? Thanks

You will need to keep working it. It will open.

    Try putting a wet-dry vac on the end of the drain hose and **** any debris out. You may have a blockage in there as well.

My little boy put my bosch exxcel washer/dryer on to dry for 2hours and then switched it to drain and then turned it off, now its stuck halfway through drain and the door wont open.


i have never worked on this type of washer dryer combo, but just from experience if a washer will not unlock and it keeps trying to drain it is either there is enough water in the unit to trip the pressure switch and the pump keeps trying to drain, means there is a blockage normally in the pump, blocking the pump, or blocking the pressure switch tube. clean these out and unit should work fine. if you arnt tech savvy , call a professional and be prepared to pay.

Washing machine bosch 1200 exxcell


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Pump continues to run


make sure you dont have water sitting under dishwasher in tray. it can cause pump only to run. If there is water in bottom, look under water valve, there is a float-is it surrounded with water?
