E04 problem you dont need a tech. If your gasket ever ripped while doing a load probably a piece on clothing got in and found its way to the pump that drains. This could be a few years down the line that this will block the water from exiting.So heres what you need to do to get it out.There is a round cover on lower right corner in the front of the machine. turn the cover to align with the 3 latches that keep the cover on or just pry it with a screw driver. Inside there will be a black cover that you need to turn by hand to unscrew it. Yes this water is the drain water and it doesnt smell great. Water will start coming out when you start turn this black cover so have towels around. Once its open stick you hand in and you should find some clothing that is blocking. Thats it make sure nother is left behind like a little cloth that got ripped from the turning pump and it in the turning part of the pump. Know you just save the service diagnostic charge and what other bs they would have said.

We have a Siemen's front loader washer. Today, it showed an E04 error. In the past, when this was the result of too much soap, it could be cleared by adding some fabric softener mixed with water into the soap dispenser and starting the washer over again.
However, this time, the washer wouldn't drain or spin. We tried clearing the drain hose from the washer to main drain and that didn't help. After reading some helpful posts, including the one above, we decided to check the pump filter.
owever, since there was still a lot of water in the washer and we couldn't open the door to drain it, we had to try a few things. First---we unplugged the washer.
We removed the round cap on the front lower part of the front of the washer (it twists off) and found the black pump filter cover. We used a flexible plastic funnel (with a notch cut out so we could get our hand in) and slowly turned the filter cover. The funnel helped to direct the water into a bucket. (Our washer is on a pedestal, which helped.) There was A LOT of water to drain (3 buckets, 3/4 full). When draining was complete, we removed the filter and found a few things that were likely the cuprits. We put the filter unit back in snuggly and the washer again worked.
