Do the following.

  1. Switch off the machine, unplug or disconnect the mains power to the machine and turn off the water supply to the machine.
  2. Remove the access panel on the lower right front of the machine.
3. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that depending on the machine type you may get a lot of water coming out of the filter when you remove it if the machine has not drained successfully. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood.
4. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
5. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
6. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
7. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
8. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
9. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
10. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
11. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
12. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.

My dishwasher won't drain properly. The pump has been making a weird sound for a month or so and last night it couldn't drain. It starting beeping and the pump was running. I cleaned the drain filter


If the pump is running but noisy then that indicates a loose pump impeller (new pump I am afraid) if running (no noise) but failing to remove water, then I would be checking that drain hose is clear, or even that your machine is not syphoning water from waste disposal, a quick check would be to disconnect waste hose from waste disposal and see if it will then drain into a bucket, hope this is helpful.

A key has appeared on the display panel and the machine won't work. What does this mean?


The key icon indicated that the door is locked(is that so cn you open door) most likely the door wont open once cycle is complete is because not all the water has drained,usually that occurs due to the screen on the pump filter being blocked, to clean that blockage access the pump via the door on bottom of front panel or by removing kick(toe)plate and you will see a small black plastic corregated hose,remove the plug from it and catch water into a bucket,pan or bowl ect,once all water is drained unscrew the lint screen located near that hose and clean what is blocking it

Hi, My Bosch Logixx 8 is showing error F18 which I think means the filter is blocked. we have lost the manual so how do you get the filter out. Do we need to drain the machine first? Is there an online...


F18 is either the pump discharge is clogged or the machine is oversudsing. If it is oversudsing, make sure that you are using an HE detergent and use less detergent. (Make sure to note the minimum detergent line

To clean out the pump discharge, have a bucket ready for when you release the hose. First, set the cycle selector to Off and unplug the washer. Open the service door and remove it. Next loosen the screws and remove the protective foil. Remove the emptying hose from the holder and take off the cap. Drain the water from the hose. Replace the cap. Then carefully remove the pump cap and drain the rest of the water from the pump. Clean out any foreign objects from the area (housing, threads of the pump cap, etc). Make sure that the impeller can turn. Then replace the pump cap and tighten the screws (the handle should be vertical). Replace the emptying hose and the foil protector. Replace the service door and plug back in. Then fill the dispenser II with 1 liter of water and then start the Drain cycle. Let this water flow through to the pump.

The manual is available from Bosch. Go to http://www.bosch-home.com/us/WAS24460UC.html?source=search and click on Additional Documents . Then click on User Manual. This will redirect you to the correct page. Select your specific model and the language and click on the manual with the IU designation. The pictures to go with the clogged pump are on page 9 of the PDF.

The filters that can get blocked are in the water inlets. To clear those, turn off the water to the washer. Select a cycle and press Start/Pause. Wait 40 seconds then set the selector to Off. Unplug the washer. Then remove the inlet hoses. Clean and replace the filters at both sides of the hose. You will need pliers to remove the filters from the washing machine side. Then reconnect the hoses and check for leaks.

I hope this helps.

My bosch excell express 1200 stops workin half way through a wash. I have to manually drain the water out of it to get the door to open. any help?


The drain pump may have stopped working. Clean out the pump trap filter at the lower of the front of the machine. Be careful as all the water will run out when you open the filter.This is the most likely cause. If the pump motor is faulty then the same symptom will occur. Then you may need a new pump.

Error message E20 and can't open the machine


E-20 error is for drain pump /filter blockage.
Drain the pump manually.Clean it internally.The filter and drain pump are getting blocked in your machine.It needs to be cleaned.In some cases drain pump needs to be replaced if its cracked.
This will help.

Will not drain in drain cycle


If you can hear the pump attempting to pump the water out, disconnect the dishwasher drain hose and place a bucket underneath it and run the drain cycle again. This should clear any clogs along the drain line and prove that your pump works. While you've got it disconnected, remove the air gap vent and clean it. A small, but large enough amout of debris can be blocking the flow of water from the dishwasher's drain hose to the garbage disposal or drain pipe. The air vent has a small cap at the top that can be removed to make cleaning easier by simply flushing it with water.

My Bosch classic 1200 express washing machine wont drain or spin


Possibly a blocked filter or pump.
Ths filter should be at the bottom right front of washer, sometimes behind a removeable cover at the bottom of washer.
To clean it, unscrew anti-clockwise, remove and clean.
