Question about Bosch Washing Machines

1 Answer

How do i fix the E-13 error on my washing machine?

I experienced the e-13 error. I went on line (you tube)and all it should be only the task of cleaning the hoses entering and exiting the drain pump as well as the drain pump. Reassembled. Didn't work. Did some more investigation on youtube and found different sites to discuss the problem. The overwhelming answer was the drain pump needed to be replaced. I ordered a new pump and installed the pump. I put back all parts, door any cables and any hoses. I also had a prayer asking for divine intervention. Turned the wash cycle to begin and i was estatic as i could be at it making noise but during the sloshing sounds coming from the washer were joy to my ears. This joy lasted about 30 min. which is exactly the time it goes into drain mode and at that time the little drain tolls worked their magic the e13 err or reared its vicious head and left ,me faced with a broken down washer for the third/fourth week, I am at my crossroads where one road leads to a new washer (not a Bosch) or take money and throw in into the wind, by trying to repair the washer i have. I've looked at the washer parts schematic/parts cost and find the costs for buying the electrical board would be cost prohibitive. This leaves me searching for an answer to resolve this hair pulling problem. Help

Hi Jerry,
I had a similar problem my LG would sometimes wash and other times I received a code(forgot the code it's been awhile)it wouldn't drain, I changed the pump etc.. I had the repairman at the house three times finally PC Richards replaced the washing machine. However after a week the same code came up. I and checked the voltage at the outlet and it read good. So, I checked the voltage while machine was running and I had 89V. I had a bad circuit breaker changed breaker problem solved! I hope this helps.

SOURCE: aeg 72630 update will not rinse during rinse cycle

If the drain lines were plugged, there may have been enough pressure on the pump to fault out. Make sure the sewer line is completely open, as well as the lines at the pump.

SOURCE: washer will not drain water or go into rinse and spin cycle

First thin I would try is to check your thermal fuse for continuity. Its located on the tunnel that incases the heasting element.

Try putting the machine into diagnostic mode. If it won't enter diagnostic mode, then you need to replace the main control board.

You also want to check the drain hose, the end of the hose is tapperd and tends to collect lint. Run a coat hanger up the hose and see if you can fish something out also check that belt.

SOURCE: Clothes remain dripping wet after the wash cycle is complete.

I assume you have removed the lint filter at the bottom of the machine and cleaned it out to make sure the pump is not stalled on a 1 pence or bra clip. Can you hear the motor start to spin? If not its probably because the water level switch is gunged up at the bottom of its rubber tube where it comes from the drum. Remove the top of the machine and locate the pressure switch - usually a round black or white device about 80 to 100mm across with a rubber pipe on a small spout 8mm diameter. Take the pipe clip off using pliers to compress it and move it back down the pipe. Remove the pipe and blow hard down the pipe to try and clear the blockage - you will hear bubbles blowing in the bottom of the drum water. Also you could very very gently blow into the switch stub pipe and listen for it changing over - clicks usually twice each way - blow - two clicks, release - two clicks. Restore swtch pipe and try the machine again. Good luck.

SOURCE: F02 Error Code on Kenmore

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your information posted I understand you have the Kenmore HE3t washer, correct ?


Reading your description and factoring in all you've done and inspected, it may in fact be a faulty pump...(the F02 ultimate worse case) even if it is draining slowly it does not rule it out, trust me I've seen many of them.

By reading your post I've gathered you are pretty thorough so I don't expect you missed it, but I must mention it or I wouldn't be thorough either, I think you can appreciate that, have you checked the back-flow/check ball ?


If not, here's how...

Pull the boot off if you have not and just see if anything has got in there to obstruct the "ball" from working correctly. It is shown here...(this is from the back, but you can do it from the front...just not as easily...in my opinion)

macmarkus_939.jpg
Undo the clamp and inspect inside...if you have not already.

macmarkus_938.jpg

It's amazing how often I find this ball "stuck" or the bellows clogged with debris of all sorts of items...definately worth looking into before declaring the pump has failed. Good luck. Let me know how you make out as I said and if I can help you in any manner going forward I will do whatever I can.

I've also included a more thorough link of my repair tip below

Wascomat dryer error codes


Check the following link: http://www.laundrynation.com/manuals/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/wascomat_dryer_selecta_control_programming_manual.pdf
On page 13 it identifies the E 08 error as overheating air (inlet or outlet). Chances are, it is the outlet that has gotten gunked up from lint or other material. Pull the vent tube off, vacuum out lint traps, clean the outlet tube, reset the machine. If the dryer is linked with other dryers on a multiple-link vent system, cleaning the vent lines may be necessary to avoid the problem.

Whirlpool washing machine wfe 1075 bd error code f13


I had the same problem and looked on other forums.

Many people had said they had success simply giving the door a moderately hard thump! I was skeptical, but prepared to give it a go, so I administered a swift kick to the door.

Lights and action, everything back to normal. Hilarious! This seriously worked - at least give it a go before you bother with anything fiddly or expensive.

Apparently this model has issues with faulty door locking.

I have an E1 message on my samsung front loader, can you tell me what that means?


Is the system filling up with water then halting with an E1 error or can you complete an entire cycle?
E1 in Samsung Front Loaders: It means the machine has detected an error in inlet water filter or the water pressure. Some of my sources indicate E1 could also be a leakage error It could all mean a faulty sensor but you should check th water lines, the door seals and the floor beneath the machine for tell-tale signs of a leaking system. Is the system filling up with water then halting with an E1 error or can you complete an entire cycle?
If you can fill the washer, but it faults with and E1, and can go no further, my research shows a common cause for the problem is the PVC tube connecting the pressure sensor to the drum has experienced a problem. In some modern washers, the water level is measured and regulated with a pressure sensor connected to the tub with a plastic tube. As the water level rises inside the drum, the pressure rises inside the sealed tube. The tube can sometimes become detached or even plugged with lint, soap or wash grime. Check the pressure sensor line to make sure it is attached to the drum and is completely unobstructed by foreign objects or deposits. If so, clean the debris and/or reattach the tube to the drum and try running starting a cycle. If you don't get the E1 code - Hooray, everyone has clean clothes again :-)
If this does not work, here is a link to a Washing Machine User Blog which might be able to offer more experts and more specific information http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/washers

SERVICE CALL 188 : FATAL ERROR


Service Call 188: Error: Sub-CPU Communication Error
1- Check the connection of the S2M board.
2- Replace the S2M board.

If the problem does not go away after a reboot you'd better call Oki (it should have a 3 yr. waranty) or an experienced oki technician.
This is not something you should want to fix yourself. The replacement of the s2m board is not an easy task (even for an experienced mechanic)
