The best way to change a pump is to do the following.

make sure the machine is fully disconnected and pulled clear.
remove the lid and using folded cardboard or old carpet, jam it down the side of the drum on the opposite side to the drain pump.

very carefully tilt the machine over onto its side (again cardboard or carpet on the floor to reduce damage to the side.

this should now give you access to the underneath of the machine with a good view of the pump with all the hose connections and wiring.

disconnect the wiring connector (usually held in place my a tag so may need a bit of a wiggle to get it out. it only fits one way, but just in case, take a picture to make sure.

using pliers or mole wrench, remove the clips from the inlet and outlet of the pump. leave the clips on the hoses so you dont loose or mix them up.

the pump can now be removed by unscrewing the unit from the front of the machine using a crossheaded screwdriver (normally a PZ2)

then its a simple case of reversing the procedure.

Dont forget to remove the packing in the washing machine and make sure all the connections are on correctly and secure.


Good luck

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.

You first of all need to check the pump filter.
This should be located at the botom front right of washer.
Look for a drop down flap or cover, once located, unscrew filter anti-clockwise to remove and clean.

The pump itself is directly behind the filter housing, check there is nothing stuck in the housing.
This should solve the prob.
Please leave feedback for my solution.
Thankyou.

Error code E:13 on my 500 plus series washer


Hi,
The E13 error code on your Bosch washer refer to a drainage problem or the pump time might have been exceeded
Either it might be due to a clogged pump, improper detergent being used, ( must use "HE" detergent ) hence suds not allowing a proper drain cycle. You should clean water drainage pipe and/or drain hose. Turn selector to off and restart 'drain, program or, on 500 plus machines, the 'refresh' program. It also says this is caused by using too much detergent. Bosch recommends using half of what the manufacturer recommends when using HE detergents. They don't recommend regular detergents. First run the short wash or refresh cycle without detergent and hopefully your lines will clear.

Thank you !!

The water won't drain from my Bosch Nexxt 500 Series Washer machine


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.
