You need to check and clean pump filter, normally located behind a removeable plastic cover at bottom front of washer right hand side.
If no filter found there remove rear panel of washer, and clean pump from rear of washer.
Please rate my solution.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much. There were some wood splinters and a nail stuck in there! No wonder it wasn't working!"
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.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your post I understand you have a Bosch WFVC5400 "Vision" series washer. Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance you require.
I will start by letting you know though the E27 & E95 error codes are not common nor are they listed in the service manuals, they are known to be associated with door lock and communication errors. These can be due to the door lock mechanism failing and/or is overheating. It is recommended that you unplug the appliance for 30 minutes and try again.
The E01 error indicates a door lock error directly. Though again this can manifest from an improper draining and not necessarily a lock problem.(drain time exceeded).
If the unplugging the uit fails to rectify the errors, you will need to first check the pump/drain lines and if all else fails replace the lock assembly unfortunately....but that's getting ahead of ourselves.
Try this first...
The next step is as follows,
Following this ( or in reverse order it's your call if you think there may be substantial water still present ) I'd do this step first...checking the pump filter. It may be a good plan to have towels close by, or a wet-dry shop vacuum.
It's as follows...
Then the filter removal...
That should resolve the problem, As I also alluded to before, there is a possibility the lock itself is faulty, but not likely.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Let me know if you need further assistance or if any of this is unclear.
**NOTE:too much "He" detergent or the use of non-He detergent can also cause too many suds which are opposition to proper operation of these machines and can and DO cause all kinds of error codes**
Once the issue is resolved I recommend running the unit through the hottest temperature possible on the longest cycle possible and add some product called "washer fresh" or "Affresh".
Both are designed to remove residule soap buildup inside the tub assembly and prevent errors associated with soap suds, which usually manifest in errors with the pump and lock.
