Question about Bosch 3.81 cu ft WFMC530 1UC Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer

2 Answers

The display shows "E:" with no number.

The machine was somewhere in the cycle when the "E:" message appeared on the display. There is no number with the "E:" message. The door is locked. Turning the machine off an on, unplugging it, and disconnecting the hoses did not resolve the problem. What does this error mean and how can it be resolved?

Just had the same problem - door locked with "E:" message. Before trying any other method, check whether the detergent you are using is the HD type. If not, the wrong detergent is being used and probably is causing the door to become stuck. Simply pour warm to hot water in the detergent opening (about 1/2 cup once or twice) and it should immediately solve the problem. If that doesn't do the trick then try other suggestions. Regardless, use only HD detergent.

With my machine it was the case of putting too much detergent in the machine.  Oversudsing.  So in the from of my machine on the lower right hand bottom corner, there was a round plate with a little hole in it.  I put a small screwdriver in it and turned the plate and removed it.  There was a piece of plastic hanging down, pull on it and try to open the door.  It seemed to work better if you tried to open the door from the bottom.  Once open, remove all clothes and run 1 cycle without anything.  I also poured hot water down the detergent area to clean it out.  If the clothes are wet, then put only a few in there and run them thru.  Basically, these machines should use detergent that have the HD mark on them, and only about 2 tablespoons of detergent for a full load.  Hope this helps...

Maintenance manual


When you see "optimizing performance", the machine is going through a cool down cycle and will return to ready after the machine's internal temperature reaches an acceptable amount (usually appears after a large amount of copying). Sometimes I have seen it take as long as 5-10 minutes for the message to clear but if you turn it off before it finishes it's cool down cycle, most of the time the machine immediately shows the message again on display. As mentioned, make sure your filters are clean. I'd also check to ensure your exhaust fans are operational (especially those near fuser area), fuser thermistors clean and in proper position, and ensure machine has proper clearance around the cabinet so it can breath properly.

Check the end of the steam nozzle, make sure it is not blocked. If not then with the knob open for hot water cycle push in on the knob if that works then the tap rod assemble or the steam valve needs to be replaced.

Regional code


1) Turn the DVDR3590H on, with no DVD in the drive
2) press HOME, so the browser appears
3) press PLAY/PAUSE. The display on the machine should say "BROWSER"
4) Slowly enter the following code: 159121212005255 (the numbers should appear on the display)
5) press PLAY/PAUSE.
6) Turn the player off

You might have to try it several times before the numbers will appear in the display panel. Don't enter the numbers too slowly either.

You can selectively clear information stored in your machine’s memory.
1. Press Setup on the control panel. The display shows the first menu;
FAX NUMBER/NAME.
2. Press ➛ or ❿ until ‘MEMORY CLEAR’ appears, then press
Start/Enter. The display shows the items you can choose to clear.
• FAX NUMBER/NAME : your fax number and name are cleared from
the machine’s memory.
• DIAL/SCHEDULE : clears the one-touch, speed dial, or group dial
numbers stored in the memory. In addition, all
the Schedule Job operations you have reserved
are also cancelled.
• JOURNAL : clears all records of transmissions & receptions.
• DEFAULT SETUP : restores all the option settings to factory default.

Only clear de Journal, don't clear the other.
Try this if it resolve the problem.
