Question about Bosch Nexxt 500 WFMC3301 Front Load Washer
Front load Bosch wash machine seems to be not draining correctly... I can set the spin or drain cycle on and it occasionally can drain but not every time. suggestions.....
Sounds like a blockage. First port of call. Check where the drain hose goes into the sink trap of your Laundry Trough. Here in Australia we connect the drain hose into the sink trap. Most of the time if the hole drilled into the sink trap is not large enough it can create an obstruction in the waterflow out of the machine. Lint and stuff can build up and partially and at times fully block the exit into the trap. Try this first.
If that appears fine you should remove the drain in the front bottom of the machine. Use a bath towel to absorb the wter that exits as you unscrew the round plug in the bootom of the machine. If the plug wont unscrew or only partially unscrews you will need to call a technician to remove the drain pump and unblock things.
Goodluck. Let me know how it goes.

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.

This error code indicates a water supply problem.
Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on?
Turn on the water. Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Completely open both faucets for proper fill.
NOTE: Both hot and cold water must be connected to the washer and turned on; the washer will not properly operate with only one incoming source of water.
Are the water inlet hoses kinked?
Straighten the water inlet hoses.
Are the water inlet valve screens on the washer clogged?
Turn off the water and remove inlet hoses from the inlet valves in the back of the washer. Inside the inlet valves are screens. Remove any accumulated film or particles from the screens. Reinstall hoses, turn on water, and check for leaks. See the Installation Instructions for details; find them by entering your model number in the search tool below.
Is the water pressure less than 10 psi?
If the water pressure is too low, the washer may not properly operate. To find out your exact pounds-per-square-inch (psi) value, contact your local water utility company.
Are you using HE High Efficiency detergent?
Use only HE High Efficiency detergent. Using non-HE detergent, or more than the manufacturer's recommended amount of detergent, can cause excessive suds. The excess suds can prevent the washer from detecting the incoming water.
Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.
See also: Why HE High Efficiency detergent is required.
Are you using flood-preventing inlet hoses that can shut off the water to the washer?
These hoses have a valve inside that will close if the water pressure is higher than two gallons per minute; this will shut off the water to the washer. If one of these hoses becomes loose, the water flow through the hose will increase and close the valve inside the hose, which will shut off water to the washer to prevent a possible leak or flood. If the hose is not loose, try taking the hoses back to the store for a replacement set.

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.

SOURCE: won't drain in last cycle
Hi just read your posting.Now can you confirm the model number please.Please ;look underneath the machine to the front right and you should see a pump with a red or black fan attached.Turn this fan clockwise and anticlockwise a few times to hopefully loosen the pump if it is jammed.If the fan turns freely then put it back on its feet and start a spin cycle to see if it drains the water.Please reply with additional information on the questions and to tell me if you have the pump with the fan or if it is not draining or if it still is not draining.
