SOURCE: Drain pump runs constantly:Error code E02

Suggestions: First see that the exit hose behind your machine is inserted at a particular height, ie about 3 feet above ground level, then into the standpipe in your wall. If things dont work plug off the wall, open up behind, you will see a thin pipe coming down from the pressure switch to the drain area. Disconnect this pipe carefully from the top and blow into it, it should be free. If blocked clear, if broken or damaged change. Refit carefully.

SOURCE: bosch frontload washer will not drain

Hello Mamma5, It sounds like the drain pump is either seized or jammed. The drain pump has an anti jam device in it. Since you have figured out how to get into the drain pump, try turning the inpeller in the back. It will be a little hard to turn as the magnets in the motor will fight you on this. Look close in case there is anykind of thread wrapped around the inpeller. If so, then you can free the pump. If you cannot free it to run, advise the repairman what you found so he can bring a drain pump with him.
Hope this helps.

Hello and welcome to fixya.

I`d suggest removing the back panel and inspecting if the belt has perhaps come off.

**Unplug the unit from the wall first**

If so, put the belt around the motor pulley and start it around the drum/drive pulley. As you hold it in place spin the large pulley and it should go back on, careful not to pinch your fingers...ouch :(

Let me know what you find out or if you require further assistance.

If this indeed solves the problem please take a second to rate my solution accordingly.

Thank you for choosing`"fixya" and good luck.

SOURCE: Bosch Error Code 13 Washer won't drain

First, unplug your washer. After that find the little round plate below your drum opening on the exterior of the washer. It should have a small hole in it. Use something to gently push trough this hole and twist the cover off, Inside there you will find the drain access. Be careful, if there is water in your drum this will make a mess when you unscrew the drain access. Take the usual precautions and unscrew the drain access slowly until it is off. Remove any obstructions and replace access door and cover. Clean up any mess and plug back in your washer and try again. takes about thirty minutes to an hour depending on how much water is in the drum.

All lights flash and pump keeps running still runs with door open


Need more information - brand name and model number (at least brand name). If it's a Bosch, it will do that if water has leaked down into the bottom basin or tray, and gotten the water sensor wet. If it's a Bosch, the most common source of that leak is the drain pump.

Error...EO4 showed up, got the washer unlocked and now it wont drain.


The machine is a bit different than most washers, so here is help when you get "error 04"...Your pump is plugged. There is a round 'door' on the lower front of the washer. At the 5-O'clock position in the door there is a small hole. Put a small screwdriver blade in the hole, push in (just a little), and you can rotate the door clockwise. When the hole is in the 6-O'clock position, the door will come out and you can get to the problem.
Immediately facing you is a black connector, about 4 inches (10cm) in diameter. When you unscrew this, all the water left in the washer will spill out onto the floor. (We used a pile of towels to catch this). The Black connector unscrews counterclockwise, and takes quite a few turns. Once you have it out, you'll find the source of your clog.

Error code eo4 and washer does not spin or drain properly


Hello,

Welcome to fixya.

The "E04" error code on your Bosch washer refers to a drainage problem as you may or may not already know. ( it can mean door lock error, but that is usually a by-product of it not draining )

What you may have is either a partially clogged pump, or a faulty pump...the later being the least likely.

You haven`t mentioned if you`ve actually visually checked the pump...it is likely just that, a blocked pump.

Anyway, here`s the most likely way to remedy a E04 code.

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

  1. Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water, hopefully you won't get wet. ( maybe you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )
  2. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)
87f1b39.jpg
3. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.

4. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful or wear chain-mail gloves).

5. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. ( you should also see a green ring with a string attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first is usually a good plan. This will deal with the door lock issue but it likely isn`t unlocking due to the water in the tub )

6fb4d4a.jpg
**There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out.**

6. Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap. Hopefully you'll find the item/debris that initiated the error code.


7. After removing any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test.


8. Run a load and watch for leaks. Leave the pump access door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks.

Ultimately you may have a faulty drain pump, or a lock, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first.

Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this indeed solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "fixya" and good luck.

How do I drain the washer when it has water so I can see what the problem is


Place the end of the drain hose into a bucket or shallow basin to drain the water. Position the bucket or basin as low as possible to extract as much water from the tub. Completely drain water from the tub through the pump filter cavity. Remove the screws attaching the bottom of the bottom panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. Place a piece of towel under the pump filter then remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter and the opportunity to inspect the pump impeller for clogs and damage by reaching it in with your finger and turning it manually. The impeller should turn freely.

My Bosch front loading washer is flashing E:13 and won't open


Hi, i had an E-13 error code on my Bosch 500 series washer. The drain pump impeller was plugged. Access the drain impeller at the bottom front right corner. Just put a pen in the hole and turn the cover. Then you need to manually drain the washer. I used a shop vac by just turning the cap until it started to leak and vacuum the water as it comes out, this takes quite a while. When you get it drained you can take the cap completely off. When I did I found a wipe in the impeller. I took it out and put it back together and the washer worked just as before.

Take care

I have an Axxis+ washer/dryer. The washer is giving me an F:34 error, any ideas?


you can try this I had one of these the other day. On the bottom front of the washer you will find a round access cover, rotate it to the right to remove it, inside you will find a green cord to manually unluck the door, pull it down. Door should now be unlocked. Chances are the door won't unluck because the wash water is not draining from the washer due to a clogged drain pump. Right behind that round access cover is the water pump. Before you open the pump cleanout, soak up all the remaining water inside the wash basket of the machine, or use a wet dry vacuum to vacuum up the water. Have a shallow pan and lots of bath towels to catch the water when you open up the drain pump cleanout. Check the drain pump cleanout for lint, small socks, coins and whatever gets left in pockets of clothes.http://servicetechhelp.com/discus/messages/2801/65423.html?1241057606
