Check right at the bottom of the cover as there may be 2 or 3 screws that hold it in place

What is error code e04 bosch front loader washer


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

What does the E04 error code mean?


E04 means that you are not draining quick enough, if you are using HE detergant then your drain line is probably clogged. There is a round access panel on the lower right corner of your washer. If you stick a small screwdriver through the tiny little hole on this panel and twist the panel off you will see the drain pump catch. You can twist this cap off by hand and remove all the debris inside. WATCH OUT a lot of water will be coming through.

Bosch E13 error on washer - shows e-13 and door will not open.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

E13 error in your Bosch WFMC washer is a drain error and is displayed when the drain time exceeds & the washer is unable to drain so the door won't open sometimes when this error is displayed. You will have to clean the drain trap in the bottom right hand corner. You can stick a straighten paper clip in the access panel located inside the front bottom panel through the whole and then turn the access panel counter clockwise to unscrew the plastic drain cap behind it. After everything is cleaned and the error returns then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Bosch wsher reading E04


On the Bosch washer this indicates a problem at the pump. Probably some sort of obstruction. You may need a #15 Torx screwdriver. There should be a small round access door at the bottom front of the washer. If you turn it to the left you should be able to remove it to gain access to the pump cleanout port. Be ready with lots of towels when you remove the cap from the drain pump. There will most likely be a flood. LOL
Clean out anything that is clogging the pump. (like the occasional stray sock) Check the condition of the pump at the same time, but there is most likely something clogging the pump. Hope this helped and best wishes.

What is an E04 code?


On the front of the machine is a round access port. Insert a paper clip into the tiny hole and push in, rotate this cover clockwise. Access cover should come right off, now unscrew the plug covering the drain assembly, have lots of towels nearby, or a wet dry vac ready, a lot of water will come gushing out, after you have cleaned up the water find the source of the obstruction within the pump and remove the obstruction. Assembly is the reverse of removal. E04 means that it's taking to long for the pump to pump the water out, it's usually caused by foreign matter within the pump housing, whole infant socks have been know to get lodged in these pumps. Hope this helps.

Have a Bosch WFMC 3200UC and gives a E04 error.


In order to unlock the door on this machine you must first turn the cycle knob to a cycle that was different than the one you were on. The machine should then reset and the door should unlock.

Perhaps try opening the round panel on the front of the machine at the bottom and cleaning that hose...good luck because it might be messy.
