Hi  hartselectri,

Check the drain hoses and pump That code is for a longer than normal drain if it did not drain it would not let you open the door, You need to clean the filter. Remove the circular panel on the front right put a little screw driver in the hole and twist the access panel will pop off. Then you will need to twist the handle of the filter and pull it out you will find what is stopping the unit from draining in there very common. Also have a lot of towels handy all the water in the unit will come out when you pull the filter.

Regards
R.K.

Bosch E13 error on washer - shows e-13 and door will not open.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

E13 error in your Bosch WFMC washer is a drain error and is displayed when the drain time exceeds & the washer is unable to drain so the door won't open sometimes when this error is displayed. You will have to clean the drain trap in the bottom right hand corner. You can stick a straighten paper clip in the access panel located inside the front bottom panel through the whole and then turn the access panel counter clockwise to unscrew the plastic drain cap behind it. After everything is cleaned and the error returns then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

E13


The E13 error code on the WFMC series Bosch washer`s refer to a drainage problem, as you may or may not already know. ( or in Bosch terms "pump time exceeded" )

Anyway, here`s the most likely way to remedy a E13 code.

Bosch washer WFMC2201UC/15 has E13 error and will not fill


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The E13 error code on the WFMC series Bosch washer`s refer to a drainage problem, as you may or may not already know. ( or in Bosch terms "pump time exceeded" )

Anyway, here`s the most likely way to remedy a E13 code.

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

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, that sucks...hopefully you won't get too wet. ( maybe you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )
  1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)
  2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
Ultimately you may have a faulty drain pump, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first.

Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "fixya" and good luck.
Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Washer not draining and rinsing


Hello Wet Towels, well to be honest outside of the test program I have never seen a fault code E13. If it was an error E03 I would check my water to make sure it was turned on, the cold inlet hose wasn't pinched, or debre filling the filter screens in the hose or water valve. That is what the care and use says about E03. In the back of your owners manual it tells you what the fault means and how to correct it. If this doesn't work call for service to resolve your issue. Hope this helps.
