Question about Washing Machines
Hi, I have a bosch washer dryer wvti 2842gb/07. I have been getting error e06 showing up and it will not complete the cycle. I have had someone to look at the issue a few times with no success. Recently when retrying the machine I could smell an electrical smell, had someone back out and he replaced the pump. This seemed to have fixed the problem for a few weeks and the machine worked fine, but last week E06 reappeared and the machine will now not finish a cycle. What else could be wrong? Thinking of call bosch out to look at it but that's expensive! Thanks Lee

Remove the rectangular fascia at the bottom front of the machine - on my model you only need a coin to turn the two plastic screws. Unclip the black rubber drain pipe, remove the plug from the end and drain the water into a bowl (or several bowls).
Then undo the round plug at the bottom left of the machine (more water will come out) which will give you access to the extractor pump. Check that there are no obstructions in there and that the small propeller in there can turn freely.
If there is no obstruction there then we move onto the next steps.
If you can figure out how to remove the front of the machine then you will find this part easier
First, TURN OFF THE POWER. Then, on the front of the machine, on the bottom left, undo the screws that fasten the extractor pump onto the front of the machine. Then pull the machine out from the wall so that you can get to the back of it. Remove the back of the machine by taking out the ten or so screws.
Looking in from the back: At the bottom-front-right of the machine you will see the extractor pump. It will have two hoses attached to it - a fat one and a slightly thinner one. Reach into the bottom of the machine and remove the power plug from the back of the extractor pump. Then, using a pair of pliers (or something similar) to open the spring clip, remove the thinner of the two hoses (the drain hose) from the pump unit. This can be fiddly - especially if you're doing it from the back of the machine.
Pull the hose out of the machine and check it for obstructions. If there are no obstructions in there then move onto the next step.
Reach back into the machine and, again using the pliers, remove the fatter tube from the pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check it for obstructions in the entry and exit holes, and also make sure that the propeller isn't obstructed. Then shake and squeeze the fatter tube to see if there is an obstruction in there
Best of luck.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
According to my list of error codes for Bosch washer/dryers, 'E06' states 'no water out'
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
