SOURCE: My Bosch 2060 Front end loader will not drain/spin

Get the pennies or dimes out of the accordian style black hose at the bottom of the washer. You will need to lay the washer against something so you can get in from underneath. Take a plyers and squeeze the medal clamp so the hose can slip off. I found 3 dimes that acted like washers. The machine will drain.

SOURCE: fabric conditioner drawer does not empty

The inlet to the conditioner compartment is probably blocked.
Get a thin piece of flexible wire and make a right angled bend on the end about 1" long, and poke it into all the holes u can see in the top of the dispenser compartment, particularly the ones at the front right side.
This should solve the prob.
Plz rate this solution .
Thanks

SOURCE: f04 error message on a bosch exxcel 1400 washing

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).

SOURCE: my Bosch Exxcel 1100 will not drain, after manualy

Could be the impellor is slipping under load, or there is a blockage between the pump outlet and the point it drains into the waste pipe.
Try blowing down drain hose to see if it is blocked.

SOURCE: Whirlpool washing machine "clean pump" error light.

take top off machine. look down right side and you will see a disc about 50 mm in diameter, attached to this is a small flexible rubber pipe, take this off at the disc and blow through it,( you will need some type of pipe to connect to the rubber pipe).this worked for me with the very same problem.

F18 is time out on drain, check the pump filter for foreign objects (coins etc-behind flap, bottom right of front kickplate) and also check for blockages on outlet hose (especially if connected via spigot, directly to sink U bend)

Hi, My Bosch Logixx 8 is showing error F18 which I think means the filter is blocked. we have lost the manual so how do you get the filter out. Do we need to drain the machine first? Is there an online...


F18 is either the pump discharge is clogged or the machine is oversudsing. If it is oversudsing, make sure that you are using an HE detergent and use less detergent. (Make sure to note the minimum detergent line

To clean out the pump discharge, have a bucket ready for when you release the hose. First, set the cycle selector to Off and unplug the washer. Open the service door and remove it. Next loosen the screws and remove the protective foil. Remove the emptying hose from the holder and take off the cap. Drain the water from the hose. Replace the cap. Then carefully remove the pump cap and drain the rest of the water from the pump. Clean out any foreign objects from the area (housing, threads of the pump cap, etc). Make sure that the impeller can turn. Then replace the pump cap and tighten the screws (the handle should be vertical). Replace the emptying hose and the foil protector. Replace the service door and plug back in. Then fill the dispenser II with 1 liter of water and then start the Drain cycle. Let this water flow through to the pump.

The manual is available from Bosch. Go to http://www.bosch-home.com/us/WAS24460UC.html?source=search and click on Additional Documents . Then click on User Manual. This will redirect you to the correct page. Select your specific model and the language and click on the manual with the IU designation. The pictures to go with the clogged pump are on page 9 of the PDF.

The filters that can get blocked are in the water inlets. To clear those, turn off the water to the washer. Select a cycle and press Start/Pause. Wait 40 seconds then set the selector to Off. Unplug the washer. Then remove the inlet hoses. Clean and replace the filters at both sides of the hose. You will need pliers to remove the filters from the washing machine side. Then reconnect the hoses and check for leaks.

I hope this helps.

Rinse fault f18


F-18 means the pump is blocked. When the machine fails, there may be an "electrical" smell as the motor has laboured. This is normal. Clean on bottom right corner and you should be fine. Drain pipe clogged. Follow insrtuctions that came with machine to drain using the little pipe bottom right. Then unscrew & clean rotor. pull out wahing machine and check drainage pipe at back is not blocked. Unscrew the drainage pipe from the sink waste and clear out. Also enaure pipe is kept high off floor and is not too long. This will help drainage and prevent pump trying to pump waste water upwards. If the pump is too old or worn out then it needs to be replaced. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com

Bosch washing machine won't drain and the door won't open.


Sounds like you have a blocked pump.To empty the machine manually lower the drain hose into a bowl or bucket.Once emptied the door should open.On most modern machines there will be a filter behind the kick plate at bottom front of machine, Check this for any foreign objects then try a spin before putting on again.If problem persists come for further options.

My trusty Bosch s510 Dishwasher which has been going strong for about 17 years (at least) has just decided not to empty itself. I noticed the bottom was full of water after a wash. I emptied all the water...


Same problem, so went out and bought a new bosch. Problem with the S510 was cured by lubricating the pump out motor bearings with a squirt of WD 40. If you don't know which pump, follow outlet hose to pump outlet.

Why is the fault F18 error code on my bosch washing machine flashing?


Open the small flap at the front bottom right of the machine. DONT unscrew the circular white knob yet!!! Use the small black hose to drain the machine into a tray, by removing the small cap on the end of the hose. You will have to use a tray, rather than a bowl because the hose is only short, and keep emptying the tray.(put a washing up bowl next to the machine, so you don't have to carry the tray.) If water does not come out of the hose, then gently unblock it with a piece of wire or fine knitting needle. When water finally stops coming out of the hose, it is time to gently unscrew the white knob anti-clockwise, and pull it forwards. Now you can clear the debris out of the pump rotor, which is behind the white knob. Check with your finger that it can rotate freely, then replace the white knob firmly. Make sure the small cap is replaced on the end of the hose, clip it back into place and put back the cover panel. If this doesn't work then there is a blockage deeper in the machine, and dismantling will be required. Good Luck!!
