Question about Bosch Vision Series WFVC6450UC

1 Answer

I'm getting an E:17 error code on my washer when I try to start it. In January of 2012, eMCee2 provided an answer that apparently worked to someone else with this problem.problem. Problem is, I can't figure out what he was talking about. Tilted the unit back. Do you mean elevated the front? Removed 3 screws under the front lip. Front lip of what? And I don't see any screws on the front of my machine. Then slid the cover under the washer opening... What cover under what opening? I'm really baffled and just don;t get that description. Help!!! Please note: my dealer invoice says 'WFVC3300UC, but the serial number sticker says WFVC6450UC...?

You have a leak
it is collecting in a tray under ther washer
the tray has a float switch in it
when the tray fills up the float switch activates telling the computer it has a leak ERROR CODE F17
by tipping the washer backward you drain the water in the tray and reset the switch
this will only be a short term fix because you still have a leak somewhere

SOURCE: bOSCH WASHING MACHINE RETAINING SPRING FOR FRONT DOOR GASKET

This is a two person job. The spring part of the metal ring goes at the 6:00 position (note the groove on the metal part of the machine). Fit the ring into the gasket as much as you can on the hinge side. While one person uses pliers to stretch the spring, another person uses a flat head screwdriver to move the ring into the gasket groove. The trick is to stretch the spring as straight and close to the machine as you can or else the ring pops off and the gasket has to be reset.

SOURCE: Bosch Nexxt Premium WFMC6400UC washer has error

Hi there,

Sorry to hear you`ve been stuck so long. The first thing to do is get any water out which may still be present.

As for the problem you`ve described, typically what this really means is an obstruction/debris inside the drain pump, specifically the button trap/lint filter insert preventing the unit from spinning or draining properly.

You haven`t mentioned whether you`ve checked the pump or not, so I`ll assume you didn`t. This is how...

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

  1. 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, I can't say, I'd guess you could get wet. ( unless you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )
  2. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)
  3. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.
  4. 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 or wear chain-mail gloves).
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
The error code should be gone when you restart a cycle however, if the error return`s you`ll need to check further for blockages in the drain hose, or the bellows from the tub to the pump.

Ultimately you could have a faulty control, but not very likely.

Hope this help`s. Thank you for visiting "fixya", please take a moment to rate the solution provided here accordingly.

Let me know if you require further assistance. Good luck.

SOURCE: Bosch series 300 washer: E:04 error; how to remove pump cover

You can get that cover off, by prying it up at the bottom and spinning the thing clockwise. then there is a large hand turnable plug inside.

Once you turn it water will start leaking out, you'll have to get in and pull out the crud from the pump screen there to clear the jam. Good luck!

SOURCE: Error code E04? Doesn't drain or spin. Machine

SEIMENS FRONT LOADER ULTRA SENSE DRAINING PROBLEM


On my SEIMENS washer, which is about the same as BOSCH, the drain problem seems to be usually a small sock jammed in the intake of the drain pump, or possibly in a hose before the pump. I found a quarter and a couple of staples in the attached settlement area where junk settles to avoid jamming the pump. Also a lot of dirt.


On the lower front under the door, while facing the washer, is a round plate with a little hole in it. Put something sturdy, a little bigger than a toothpick in there, and rotate the plate about a 16th of a turn, maybe a little more, and it comes off.


Take duct tape or similar and tape up the edges of the hole and a nearly vertical bar in the hold on the left side, because the edges will cut your hand, like they did mine.


Inside the hole you will see a black turn knob inside. Turn it left very slowly, only after you figure out where the water will go, probably a small bucket or two of it. I used a 4" funnel which got most of it, I think, funneling into the bucket. Maybe you can be more creative, but it is what was at hand. Still got water on the floor out of the garage into the street. Turn left slowly, so it doesn't dump water outside of the funnel. You will see the water is brown, silt, dirt and stuff.


If you get a lot of water out, that means the blockage is probably at the pump. If you don't get water out, the blockage is probably in the hoses from the washer, which means you need to undo hose clamps going into the pump and clear the blockage. That is harder.


Most likely it is something in the pump area itself.


After most or all of the water is gone, and it doesn't seem to unscrew any more, tug on it and it will come out exposing the pump and probably the sock.


Remove the sock, and check the pump impellors to make sure they are intact. If gone, that means a new impellor and probably a pump. Then move the impellor, it should click as it moves and stop. If it does, you have found the problem. Sock blocking the outlet.


Carefully clean out the **** inside the pump settlement area. If you leave any of the sandy gritty clumpy stuff it can ruin your pump. Also clean the plastic thingy you pulled out, and make sure the threads and sealing surfaces are clean there too.


Then screw it back in firmly, and start the washer, without clothes. I would just fill it up, starting the cycle, until it starts to agitate, then go to the drain position


With luck, it will now drain. .


This will save you a service call for something easy to fix yourself.

SOURCE: e17 error code

Got an E17 Error today on a Bosch 6450 Series washer (the user manual says Bosch Vision 300/500/DLX series). Here's what I did to fix the problem.
- Tilted the unit back, propped up the front with some 2x4 (lying flat; that's all the room I had).
- removed 3 screws (Torx 20 I think) under the front lip. Then slid the cover (below the washer opening) down. This revealed the pump to empty the washer, a manual door lock opening pull rod, and a drain line (?)
- Looking through some holes in the front panel I saw some water on the bottom of the washer... but I spent a lot of time with the pump cleaning it out first (some zipper pull got in there and made a lot of plastic shavings). - Ultimately I got my hand the bottom of the washer and soaked up the water that I could find. That's when I realized
- there is a micro switch mechanism at the bottom near the front. This must be the "AquaStop". The mechanism contains a bit of styrofoam that floats up on any little amount of water that collects under it and triggers the microswitch. So, I removed that unit, wiped the water up... put it all back together. No more E:17 error.
Still don't know how the water got there in the first place though.

    I get an error code of "F1" when the washer first starts.


    The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.



    It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.



    The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.



    The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

    LINK: http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wfgstgtftbtkrrdxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/gfsfgfsgqxgfqtqtgwf/1/1303472/5961857/image55806img-or.gif



    NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.



    There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

    A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

    When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

    If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

    This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.



    NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.



    If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

    As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

    someone I know had this problem. Apparently this is a security issue. We tried everything and nothing worked, getting new browser, deleting cookies, change password. Apparently the problem was Norton. The cofe1700 error code dissapear after we updated to the newest version of norton.
    Thats why I don't use norton protects your computer but gives you other kind of headaches. i hope this solves the error code:COFE1700 for everyone.
