Bosch Nexxt Washer WFMC 3200UC Won't Drain or Spin The wash cycle works. It beeps to indicate cycle is over but when I open the door. All of the water is still there. I tried turning it off, then on again, tried drain only, spin etc. The motor sounds like it wants to work but cant. I have drained it by hand.

There is a blockage in the pump.there will still be water in the system
if you have a wet dry shop vac attach it to the end of the drain hose and remove the rest of the water.

then remove the drain pump cover on the lower left side of the washer.insert a small tool or something to push in the locking tab rotate it counter clockwise and the cove will come off
the unscrew the drain pump clean out plug and look for any thing that may be obstructing the pump. if you dont see anything in the pump loo at the hose that comes frrom the bottom of the tub there may be some thing in the hose.
once you remove the drain pump cap you can put the washer in a spin only mode and watch the impellar wheel to see if it turns.
if it doe snot turn you may need to replace it.

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.

Further on the solution provided on Oct. 28th.

The circular cover is on the front, below the door on the 3200UC. Use an unfolded large paper clip or in my case a large safety pin and push in where there is a small hole. Rotate the cover slightly and it opens. Once you get that open, there is a valve to unscrew. Be sure to have towels or sponges around as this will drain what ever water is left in the drum. Unscrew the cover only a little until water starts to leak out. Once it's drained, remove the valve cover completely. There is then another white plastic piece that you can gently pry out with a flat head screw driver. Once that's out, you'll be at the main drain. In my case there was an infant sock blocking the drain. I removed that and the machine works like a charm again.

Hope the details help a bit. Thanks for the original solution!

Have a Bosch WFMC 3200UC and gives a E04 error.

In order to unlock the door on this machine you must first turn the cycle knob to a cycle that was different than the one you were on. The machine should then reset and the door should unlock.

Door locked,wont spin or drain.

humming noise suggests a foreign object in the pump. crack open filter and drain water into a shallow tray. repeat till empty. remove filter completely and clean it. check if something stuck in pump impellor. this should be visible by looking into the filter hole
