SOURCE: TURN OFF ALARM

Assuming you have allready checked the operators manual, check again on page 19 for "Accoustic Signal".  To deactivate the signal select a program press two of the option buttons and hold until a short signal is emitted.  There you have it.

SOURCE: Bosch Washer flashing E:

John-I have the same problem. I called service, they told me to unplug it (or turn off the breaker) for 30 mins, then turn back on. That should reset it. However, for me, it didn't do a thing. He said if that didn't work it's time for a service call.

SOURCE: The water won't drain from my Bosch Nexxt 500

I solved the problem by using a sump pump to drain most of the water, then I removed the cover plate on the lower front right of the machine to get access to the drain plug. Upon removing that, some water flowed out but not too much, I found a sock jammed in there which wasn't allowing the drain or spin cycle to work properly.

Interestingly, the machine's manual says that the cover plate is only to be removed by a Bosch authorized service repair representative. Saved about $150 by simply doing this myself.

SOURCE: door will not open bosch nexxt 500 series

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get the door open for now at least...and a little more with some luck.

The door typically locks as a result of the unit failing to drain, so....


**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

  1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner) macmarkus_26.jpg
  2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.

3. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful).


4. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand or with the aid of pliers.

**NOTE - you should also see a ring attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first if present is usually a good plan

Once the door is open and you've removed the items you wanted. Unplug the washer for 20minutes or so and then plug it in again, to see if the control "resets".

Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "FixYa" and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I have a bosch nexxt 500 series washer. When closed it clicks 3 times in series for 3 cycles and then displays e 01. I replaced the lock mechanism with a part directly from bosch and still the same


An answer found on a BOSCH support site said:

"the E:01 indicates a door lock error, make sure the door is closing tightly, you also may have a loose connection on either the door latch assembly or the control board, if these check out replace the latch assembly."

Since you've already replaced the mechanism then it seems possible a loose -connection- may be your problem. If you've already checked all this, please post back.

Unplug it and take the front panel off under the door. There is a drain plug. Remove it, BE READY FOR WATER!. Clean it out when it is done draining. Reassemble and plug it back in.

Need to replace the foam strip that seals the front door on my Bosch 500 Nexxt series electric dryer....do I do this from the front?


Most likely yes. Get a good adhesive for it though and make sure it is dry before you close the door and before you use it.

How do you clean the drain in a bosch next 800 series washer?


Almost all Bosch machines have a manual drain trap that usually can be accessed from a small door in the front panel. Open the door and you will see the trap access.
