    You'll have to take the back off to check the drain pump.

Model 11026955690. Why does screen indicate LP?


I am not familiar with any error code referencing "LP". Could you be seeing "LF"?
Below are the error codes listed for your washer:
  • "LF" (Long Fill) Inlet hoses are kinked or clogged or water valve screens are not clear. (Solution: Straighten inlet hoses or clear screens of any foreign material.)
  • "LD" (Long Drain) Drain hose is kinked or clogged. (Solution: Straighten or unclog hose.)
  • "FF" (Fill Failure) Problem with water level sensing system. (Solution: Call for service.)
  • "OL" (Open Lid) Lid Is open during drain or spin. (Solution: Close lid.)
  • "PF" (Power Failure) Power to washer went off during cycle. (Solution: Press any pad to clear the display. Restart the washer from the beginning of the cycle.)

My washer is showing a f32 ,f71 codes what does that mean


Sd Error Suds Detected (Stored Error Code F71) Did you use regular detergent?
Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High Efficiency ("HE") detergent.
Did you add too much detergent?
Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer's directions. If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle. The suds reduction routine removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is ?ashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your desired cycle using cold water. Press START. Do not add detergent.


Ld Error Washer is taking too long to drain water from the washtub
(Stored Error Code F32) Check the following:
Is the drain hose or pump clogged?
Is the drain hose higher than 96" to reach the drainpipe?
Is the Drain Pump Running?
Is the pressure transducer hose kinked, disconnected, or punctured?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.

Goes partly through cycle-then gives code ld


Hello there:
For the LD error please check for the following:
  • Check for kinked or clogged Drain Hose: Remove any obstructions in the drain hose / stand pipe / utility sink. Straighten the hose to remove any kinks. If the washer is unable to drain due to a kinked or restricted drain hose, the washer may not spin.
  • Check for Standpipe higher than 8 feet above the floor:The pump is not powerful enough to pump water to heights greater than 8ft. The water will remain in the basket.
  • Check for excessive suds in the washer: Drain pumps cannot drain suds out of the washer.
To clear the suds condition: Check the drain hose and make sure the hose is not plugged or kinked Press pause/cancel twice to clear the display Run the machine through a Rinse/Spin cycle using cold water, then a Normal cycle using cold water.Note: Do NOT add any additional detergent. This will remove much of the remaining detergent held in the fabric. This step may have to be repeated to remove all the detergent. If the appliance does not accept inputs from the control panel, follow the Hard Reset steps below to reset the control:
  • Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  • Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
  • Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
  • Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.
Note: If the Hard Reset does not work, there may be an internal failure with the appliance, that requires service.The SD error code is caused by using the wrong detergent or excessive amounts of detergent.
To correct the issue: Make sure to use HE detergent. Note: Using Non - HE Detergent will cause oversudsing and can damage the washer. Do not use too much detergent.
Note: If using HE 2x - 5x concentrate detergent, reduce the amount being used. The washer will try to run a mini-clean out cycle using cold water and a 5 minute pause to clear the suds. If this cycle does not clear the display and complete the cycle the clothing may need to be rinsed by hand and then rewashed without detergent.
I have included a list of all the error codes and what they indicate below this includes the F50 error code. I recommend scheduling a service repair so a technician can properly diagnose and repair your washe

Error code E:13 on my 500 plus series washer


Hi,
The E13 error code on your Bosch washer refer to a drainage problem or the pump time might have been exceeded
Either it might be due to a clogged pump, improper detergent being used, ( must use "HE" detergent ) hence suds not allowing a proper drain cycle. You should clean water drainage pipe and/or drain hose. Turn selector to off and restart 'drain, program or, on 500 plus machines, the 'refresh' program. It also says this is caused by using too much detergent. Bosch recommends using half of what the manufacturer recommends when using HE detergents. They don't recommend regular detergents. First run the short wash or refresh cycle without detergent and hopefully your lines will clear.

Thank you !!

Error code f 21, what does this mean?


The error code F-21 refers to Long Drain. The washer has sensed that it has not drained out completely and cannot go into further cycle.

If yours is a HE 2 washer, afer few minutes, Sd error will be displayed and then after couple of minutes F21 error code will appear. Water valves will be turned off and stops running.

If yours is a HE front load, when drain time exceeds 8 min, F21 error will be displayed. The water valves will be shut off and pump will stop running.

Generally, by re-storing the power to washer, it may fix the problem.
You may press the pause or the cancel button twice to clear the display.
You may have to double check the drain hose to see if there are any kink, clogs.

Also, you may unplug your washer, turn the circuit breaker off for 1-2 minutes and then plug it back in to check if it works. After this, check to see if the washer drains.

I receive an f 02 error on delicate cycel and it won't finish the load


Hi!

Error F 02 means the drain time is taking longer period then normal. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and “F/02” is flashed. To resolve the issue you are facing with you need to follow these steps---

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the ‘sud’ error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F/02 error code will be displayed.

To clear this error code—

Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
• Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
• Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects

If still the error code exists then you need to replace the pump.

Thanks for using FixYa and revert for further assistance.

My washer has E:13 on the display. I called Bosch


According to the service manual, you should clean water drainage pipe and/or drain hose. Turn selector to off and restart 'drain, program or, on 500 plus machines, the 'refresh' program. It also says this is caused by using too much detergent. Bosch recommends using half of what the manufacturer recommends when using HE detergents. They don't recommend regular detergents. I would run the short wash or refresh cycle without detergent and hopefully your lines will clear. I have also read that if this persists, powder HE detergent is better to use instead of the liquid because of certain chemicals contained in the liquids that cause it to congeal in some front loader drainage pipes. I hope this helps.
