**An "F21" error indicates a blocked drain, faulty pump as you obviously know, but can also be caused by the back-flow ball inside the bellows which connects the tub to the pump.** **Turn off the breaker at the service panel or unplug the washer from the wall socket...safety first**
There is a large clamp which secures it to the tub, but if you remove it to clean out all the dirt built up inside, make sure you get it good and secure when putting it back.
You'll want to look in this bellows for debris or clothing items such as small socks, undergarments etc. which can obstruct the function of the back flow check ball.
Keep me posted and let me know how it goes and if you require further assistance.

Pl give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help,
The 03 error code is the drain. Disconnect the drain hoses
and check for blockages. If no blockage "time" the drain interval. If
it's more than 6 minutes it's the pump. Also make sure you're using the
type of soap so the ball check valve on the bottom of the outer drum
getting fouled with excessive suds. Also disconnect the drain hose from
house plumbing and let it free flow on it's own. This will tell you if
block is in your plumbing, and not in the machine. Assuming that your
filter is clean.
Can you describe WHERE the leak may be coming from? If the leak is coming from the front area of the washer, it may be the door bellow (rubber gasket), or the drain pump. You will need to open the door and pull back the folds in the rubber gasket and inspect for cracks or tears in the rubber. To inspect the pump, you need to remove the bottom panel under the door and look for any leaks inside the unit. The drain pump is in the front, directly under the wash tub. Also check all hose connections. If the washer is leaking from the rear area, check the fill hoses and drain hoses for cracks or holes. Make sure all hose connections are tight. The fill valve is another possiblity too. You will need to remove the top panel to view the valve to ensure it is not dripping. Please verify your symptoms and let me know. I hope this helps.
There is a rubber boot from the wash tub to the pump. At the tub end of the rubber boot is a plastic ball slightly larger then a ping pong ball. The space around the ball was plugged with paper towel. The paper towel pieces were removed and the unit reassembled. Access to the rubber boot required removing both the front and back panels.
after ensuring the sump hose and transfer hoses are clear clean out the pressure system to ensure the water wash level is not more than usual, secondly check whether the waste hose is not back filling from a sink u bend and also check the sink u bend for blockages (usually fat).
if all ok start to check the wiring connections from pump to pcb board, if these are ok then there may be a fault on the board. (pumping problems are usually easily solved with the above proceedure, the pcbs are rarely at fault for bosch but you may be the unlucky one !). tony
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.
