Need to know what f04 error code is

Bosch Excel? F04 means the pump hasn't been able to pump out (or at least that it thinks it hasn't been able to pump out). There are multiple possibilities from a clogged hose, to a burnt out motor, to a bad relay or just a bad connection. None the less, I found a blog post that details how to deal with it if you're handy...

Hope that helps!

I have a bosch WFR 2460 washer. Er:15 error code.

You need to check and clean pump filter, normally located behind a removeable plastic cover at bottom front of washer right hand side.
If no filter found there remove rear panel of washer, and clean pump from rear of washer.
Please rate my solution.

It wont unlock after giving me the f04 code... cause it has water in it but i need to open it! it also the drum wont spin

sounds like your water pump has failed or blocked position your drain hose on the floor into a bucket or floor waste let water drain out you should be able to open door reposition drain hose in original position and try again if drain pump does not work check for blockage or replace faulty pump good luck

F04 error message on a bosch exxcel 1400 washing machine, then the water wont drain away

This error indicates an obstruction in the water pump. . Tip machine back so you can fit a bowl under the bottom right hand side. Flip back cover at bottom right to reveal pump filter access - unscrew (quite a bit of water comes out so have the bowl ready).

Bosch 1400 exxcel

The machine thinks the drain is blocked.. check the pump and outlet pipe for buildup of dirt.

I noticed holding start down for several seconds whilst powering the machine on, then turning it off / then on again would clear the machine's idea of where it was during a program. Does this affect the error code you're seeing?
