Bosch Nexxt 500 making whistling sound

I purchased this washer new 2 months ago and it has suddenly started making a whistling sound as it washes the clothes. I don't notice any leaking water and the door is shut and locked. This washer was totally quiet when running prior to this.

According to the manual, you have to:

1. Turn program selector to "off"
2. Turn selector to Drain or Spin
3. Press the start / pause

Wait until program ends.

Open door.


Press "start / pause" until the start / pause light flashes.

SOURCE: Washer stopped. E04 beeps but won't spin or continue any cycle. Have shut off machine but only makes a strange sound.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I had the same problem. Error code E04 with a full load of laundry and water in the washer. Unplug the power to the washer. Take off the round cover plate in the front right. Mine did not turn clockwise or counter-clockwise, it was completely stuck. Used two flat tip screwdrivers to carefully pry it away, without damaging anything. The plate is a hard plastic but just pliable enough.
Once removed, you will see the pump (img_0001). Unscrew the pump cover slowly. There will be water coming out, so be prepared. In my case we had a LOT of water, so I drained it gradually into a couple of large garbage bags. Wrap the bag opening tightly against the pump surround to minimize spills (img_0002).
Once all the water is gone, remove the pump cover and clean out any items trapped in the pump and in the drain from the drum (img_0003). In my case it was some loose change and a small ColorCatcher sheet. Reassemble the pump and you're done.

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: Bosch Nexxt 500 Plus Elect Dryer Error E01

Absolutely those dryer sheets are the root of all evil....I would also recommend a good vent brush to clean your dryer vent.
Follow these steps, it worked for me:
1. use a shop vacuum to clean out the dry vent or a vent brush.
2. Clean your lint filter with windex, hot water and and soft bristle brush.
If this doesnt work try running the until disconnected from the vent for a cycle to isolate the vent as your issue.

My new Bosch Nexxt 500 series washer is less than 30 days old. I can turn it on any program and I can hear it initially fill with water, but it does not spin to wash or rinse. It does not have any error...

As your washer is less than 30 days old, I strongly recommend that you contact the company you purchased it from, and ask them to change it for you, under the sale of goods act, you have the right to insist upon a replacement washer.
However, before you do that, double check your handbook, and make sure it is nothing you have done wrong.
Try switching it off, and then try again to use it.
Please leave feedback.

Need clear plastic cover for front of door

I have one. My new Bosch washer came 2 months ago and I removed it immediately.
The problem is that it arrived scratched up somewhat, which is another reason I removed it as this will only get worse with a plastic cover.
The cover also makes it harder to see into the machine while it's in operation.
To be honest, I'm not sure why you would want it on there, but if you really need one then mine is available.

Bosch Nexxt 500 is on rinse cycle, won't drain the water or spin

I would check two things that might cause this problem .
1. there is small palstic capsule that comes out from the tank and has thin rubber pipe that goes to the electric tap. the purpuse of the tube is to send signale to the tap to close the water , actually the tap has a sensor that sence the change in presure when the water tank is filled . check this capsule and make sure that its clean.
2.looks like the cycle of washing hasn't started or started but hasn't pass the stage of heating the water . that means there is some problem with the heater that lies in the buttom of the tank . make sure all wires attached properly .
try run whashing program of cold water .
consider replacing the heater .

hope it helps

Our Bosch Nexxt washer uses very hot water on all

there is a mixing valve that uses a solenoid to open and close (and mix) the hot/cold inlet water based on your selection.
If you verify the correct model # I can point you in the right direction for a new valve if you are so inclined.
