Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Bosch Exxcel 1200 (WF02464GB) not heating

The machine only heats when it takes the detergent, all three rinses are cold only and this time of year the load will be very cold when it comes out. If the machine is not taking extra time (like a hour or two) longer to run a cycle, then there is no problem.
If you want to check the heater is functioning, try this
1 Put the dial to off
2 press and hole the start button whilst turning the dial one click to left (easycare 30)
3 release start and either two of the progression lights are lit or if it has a diplay should show 8.88 or 0.00
4 turn dial to 90 cotton, take the the long way round ie not thro the off or you will have to start again
5 press start
6 drum will fill and the heater will come on, wait a few minutes and if the heater is working ok you will hear a noise like a kettle boiling.
The drum does not turn during the test to allow you to hear this without the movement of the drum obscuring the sound.
If it sounds ok, cool. put dial to off, wait a second then select drain to get rid of the water in the drum
All the best

Bosch washing machine won't drain and the door won't open.

Sounds like you have a blocked pump.To empty the machine manually lower the drain hose into a bowl or bucket.Once emptied the door should open.On most modern machines there will be a filter behind the kick plate at bottom front of machine, Check this for any foreign objects then try a spin before putting on again.If problem persists come for further options.

Bosch 1400 exxcel

The machine thinks the drain is blocked.. check the pump and outlet pipe for buildup of dirt.

I noticed holding start down for several seconds whilst powering the machine on, then turning it off / then on again would clear the machine's idea of where it was during a program. Does this affect the error code you're seeing?
