The E04 code is a blocked pump code.

You will need to remove the round door on the bottom right hand corner of the front panel. Behind that door is a cleanout handle on the pump. You will need to unscrew that and clean it out. When you take the cleanout off there will be some water in the washer so put a pan under it OR have some towels handy. Or better yet a shop vac with the paper filter removed. You can loosen the cap about a full turn and another quarter turn before water will start to slowly flow from it. With a shop vac you can suck the water up while controlling the flow with the cap. Easy peasy. Once the water stops unscrew the cap all the way and pull the basket out. If it\'s really full it can kind of act like it\'s jambed in there but it will come. Dump the crud and don\'t forget to check the hose that goes from the tub to pump for debris. Also make sure the impeller inside pump will move and doesn\'t feel cocked to one side. If you have it put a little petrolium jelly around the threads and o-ring of the basket cap before reinstalling it. It will make removal easier the next time you clean it. If you have trouble let me know.

Bosch Nexxt series 100 place clothes in machine start add detergent as always machine begins to add water for about 30 seconds then stops , sometimes stops and sounds like it is trying to drain sometimes just stops and won't unlock door even if you turn machine off. Sometimes if you switch from hot to cold washer will work just fine for a couple of days then back to just stopping.

This is a trouble code for a fill that is taking to long. Make sure that both the hot and cold water valves are turned on. Hope this helps.

Put the washer on cold and run "TWO" cycles. There is too much soap or fabric softner.

SOURCE: bosch 100 series will not drain

You need to check and clean the pump filter if you have not already done so.
This is located at the bottom front right of washer.
Unscrew anti-clockwise to remove and clean.
