BOSCH WFMC3200 Washer - Receiving E04 error and manual indicates clearing drain hose and pipe. How do I remove the cover on lower front of machine?


there is small hole in the cover you need to push a small screwdriver or ice pick works in the hole and then turn clockwise till it comes off.
But there will be some water come out so if you have a wet dry shop vac then use it on the end of the drain hose to remove most of the water then keep it handy when you take the plug out there will still be some water come out and you should be able to clena out the trap area

I have a BOSCH washer/dryer WVTI2840 which keeps showing the error code E06. I have checked the pump and also had a new one fitted! The code still appears but now the machine will not spin on a rinse spin...


This error is indicating drain problem.You will have to manually drain the machine. E06 is a draining problem.
When you took the filter out did you check there was nothing jamming the impeller at the back?

Make sure the impeller turns ok. It should ping round in stages.
Also check were it drains to. If under a sink check the pipes there.

If after that its still not draining then its likely to be the pump which is faulty.If you have already replaced the pump then check the connection of pump to the hose.

My Bosch classic 1200 express washing machine wont drain or spin


Possibly a blocked filter or pump.
Ths filter should be at the bottom right front of washer, sometimes behind a removeable cover at the bottom of washer.
To clean it, unscrew anti-clockwise, remove and clean.

Bosch 1200 classic express washing machine wont spin


Providing the machine isn't requiring major breakdown repair, the problem should be solved by emptying the machine and cleaning the drain pump. If this is obstructed the maching won't drain or spin as any bits left in clothes (paper clips, coins, nails, screws etc) wedge themselves into the (what I call a fly wheel) the pump impeller wheel at the back. If the fly wheel can't rotate the machine cannot pump or spin.

So.........turn off the washing machine before you fiddle about with it. Then, at the bottom right-hand side at the front of the machine there's a drop down door. Take this down and take it off. Then, lower the drain hose from its holder and pull the hose out of its housing. Be very careful if you're doing this while you have very hot water in the machine. To be safe, let the water cool before starting. Next take off the closing cap from the hose and empty the water from the machine. There are times when the water doesn't empty by this method so carefully open the door to the machine and bale it out. If the water does come out via the hose, have a suitably sized bucket at the ready as up to 20litres can be drained. Once you've done this, put back the closing cap of the drain hose and returned the drain hose to its holder, unscrew (anti clockwise) the petrol tank cap look-a-like placing a towel underneath as a little residual water will flow out. The pump impeller (fly wheel) must be able to rotate so clean out any residual fluff from the thread of the pump cap and pump housing before returning the pump cover and screwing tightly on. Put back the drop down flap and, hopefully, away you'll go again.

Hope this is of some help.

Bosch wfmc3200 will wash but will not spin or


hi, this is a drain pump motor issue. i would check the wires leading to the drain pump and the control board. make sure the pump wires are connected and the control board wires as well. if the wires are connected, this will rule out a communication problem and confirm pump failure.

You can also do a break point test with a multimeter on the control board to make sure the control board is working correctly.

Concerning the locked door(washer locked)**. if the door is locked, this may be a control fault. test the door lock mech for its operational value to confirm this as well.

Bosch WFMC 3200 Front Load will not pump water out


the pump gears could be stripped or clogged with soap residue including the line from the pump to include the drain hose itself. I took the back of my machine off after cleaning the pump twice to find the reservoir full of a brown soap gunk/sludge. there is also a small rubber tube that runs from this reservoir back into the drum which was plugged shut with the same gunk. this thick soap residue can damage the pump motor or slow the drainage system to get the E 04 warning. I cleaned the gray drain hose out with the garden hose and was amazed at the sludge that game out. When the machine would run on the drain cycle we would also get a sewage smell that I thought was coming form the drain trap but turned out to be caused by the sludge in the pump. After cleaning the system and now using no more that a tablespoon of soap it works great & the cloths are clean.

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 correct type of soap so the ball check valve on the bottom of the outer drum isn't getting fouled with excessive suds. Also disconnect the drain hose from your house plumbing and let it free flow on it's own. This will tell you if the blockage is in your plumbing and not in the machine.

Bosch WFE 2021 machine does not complete wash...


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.
