We keep getting this but can get around it.
You probably have a blocked pump/filter. If there is still water in the machine you will need to drain this first. So...
First try this. If it's finished the washing phase turn off the machine (rotate the dial to off then turn off at mains), leave for a min and turn on again at mains, then move dial to the rinse cycle.
If this works then it may clear the blockage for you. If not go to the bits below.

1. Remove the covering from the bottom RHS of the machine
2. There is a small black hose. Pull out and place in suitable container/bucket then unplug the end.
3. Will take quite a while to remove all the water. (Tip - once water is well below the window level unlock door and remove washing).
4. Once all water removed replace hose top and unscrew anticlockwise the white holder to the right of the hose. Make sure you have a towel handy to mop up any excess water.
5. Remove and clean all junk from it under a tap.
6. Look and see inside hole if any debris wool/cotton etc is blocking impeller and remove if necessary.
7. Replace holder.
et voila it should work again!

If not you have probably have a blockage somewhere in the pipe inside the machine. Sorry can't help with that one.

That fault code is to do with the drain pump either its jammed or not working remove the front plate at the bottom of the machine undue the filter and check to see if it is either a blockage or something jammed in the pump..

hope this helps cheers

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?

SOURCE: f04 error message on a bosch exxcel 1400 washing

This error indicates an obstruction in the water pump. . Tip machine back so you can fit a bowl under the bottom right hand side. Flip back cover at bottom right to reveal pump filter access - unscrew (quite a bit of water comes out so have the bowl ready).

SOURCE: what does error f04 mean on a bosch washing

It means that the water is not draining fromthe machine inthe time allowed by the controller.

1. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
2. 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.
3. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
4. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
5. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
6. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
7. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
8. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
9. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
10. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
11. 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.

Need to know what f04 error code is


Bosch Excel? F04 means the pump hasn't been able to pump out (or at least that it thinks it hasn't been able to pump out). There are multiple possibilities from a clogged hose, to a burnt out motor, to a bad relay or just a bad connection. None the less, I found a blog post that details how to deal with it if you're handy...

Hi my washing machine bosch exxcel is not working ive checked filter the code f04 keeps flashing and i cant find my hand book to check code do you know what it means


The F4 error code on your washer indicates a problem in the electrical circuits of the washer... and not end-user repairable.
This problem requires a technician to test the wiring circuits to diagnose the problem.
