What does e13 on bosch exell 8 mean


This e13 code flashes with the "rinse" indicator light and indicates a blockage in the drain. This is often caused when you use too much detergent, or detergent that is not designed for a high-efficiency washer. Look for detergent with the letters "HE" on the package. Run a rinse cycle to remove any excess suds from the washer.

Bosch front load washer code E13 comes on


Bosch E-13 error code is a drain timeout code. This means the pump has run a certian amount of time without fully draining itself.

This could be anything from a clogged drainline in your home to a clogged drainline in the machine, your pump is clogged, pump is burned up, no power to the pumpetc. Most of the time its either something jammed in the pump, or its burned up (from something being jammed in it).

If your model has a filter on the front of the machine, put down plenty of towels and slowly undo the filter. Water will come out. Check to see if its blocked or if the outlet hose is blocked.

The same E13 code on the WFMC series Bosch washer`s refer to a drainage problem, as you may or may not already know. (or in Bosch terms pump time exceeded). Anyway, here`s the most likely way to remedy a E13 code.

Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water, that sucks...hopefully you won't get too wet. ( maybe you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )

1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)
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. ( you should also see a red ring with a string attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first is usually a good plan ) There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out
5. Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap. Hopefully you'll find the item/debris that initiated the error code.
6. After removing any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test.
7. Run a load and watch for leaks. Leave the pump access door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks.

Ultimately you may have a faulty drain pump, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this answer and leave us a testimonial comment)..

Can you tell me what e13 means on my bosch nexxt 500


Timed out on drain cycle, basically you either have an outlet blockage or something is trapped in the pump, you can check the pump by opening the bottom right flap on the front panel,manually emptying the w/m and checking the pump filter for coins etc. Also, check the outlet isn't blocked. E13 means timed out on drain cycle, In other words its trying to drain and cant so it stops with that error code, Hope this helps,

THE bOSCH 300 SERIES WASHING MACHINE IS NOT DRAINING PROPERLY AND IT GIVES ME A MESSAGE e13. wHAT DOES E13 MEAN? pLEASE HELP


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The E13 error code on most series Bosch including the "Nexxt" series washer`s refer to a drainage problem, as you may or may not already know. ( or in Bosch terms "pump time exceeded" )

Anyway, here`s the most likely way to remedy a E13 code.

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs, and a pair of mechanics gloves are recommended due to extremely sharp edges...safety first**

Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water that is typically the reason for a locked door, that sucks...hopefully you won't get too wet. ( maybe you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )

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 Vision 500 washer won't fill with water. i! Yesterday we got a E13 error with the washer. The door wouldn't unlock, so I removed the front panel to unlock it manually. I also cleaned out...


Hi

You are right, E13 is a long drain time error and to solve this issue the pump filter assembly should be cleaned completely. There is a tiny hole you can stick a pin through in the access panel on the lower front right corner. Push a pin through the whole and turn the access panel counter clockwise and it will remove so that you can unscrew the plastic drain cap behind it. Remove the plastic drain cap and clear the drain behind it. After doing all these things if the issue returns then it means the drain pump is faulty and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Bosch Logixx 8 washing machine Powers OFF itself when filling water in the softening stage I have a 7 years old Bosch WAS32742AU/08 washer, it will wash, rinse then will power itself OFF with nothing on the display when it reaches the softening cycle where it begins to fill water, there is about 10mins left in the cycle. I can turn the dial OFF then back to the same program to resume the cycle, it will start filling with water again in the softening stage and power off again. I've checked the water level pressure switch hose and cleaned the chamber, I dont't think there is a problem with that because it works during the cycle until the softening stage. I can run and complete the Drain only cycle, Rinse only cycle, Spin only cycle and 15min Quick cycle without interruptions. It's only programs that has the Softening part of the cycle it powers off when filling water in the middle dispenser compartment during the softening stage where Valve 1 and Value 2 are open. I don't even use softener and the compartment is clean. The current work around is when it Powers OFF during softening, I turn the dial to OFF then select the rinse only cycle to complete the washing. I got into the Valve test mode and found that Value 1 and Valve 2 tests are OK individually but when it V1 and V2 are both ON to fill the middle softener dispenser compartment it wont stop filling and eventually the machine powers off. I posted a video of the test here: https:/ / streamable dot com/n1gw6 https:/ /player dot vimeo dot com/video/264199360 Do you know what the problem could be?
