Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

According to Bosch this is what the error means ( as taken from my bosch service manual )

Er:04
Door actuation defective
Triac defective,
Door relay stuck
- replace control


However, this can also be initiated by a washer which did not drain or spin properly ( error 13 ) and then the door has been attempted to open.

I would suggest you try this before resigning to needing a new control...

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water, that sucks...hopefully you won't get too wet. ( maybe you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )

  1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)
  2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.
  3. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful or wear heavy/thick gloves).
  4. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. ( you should also see a red ring with a string attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first is usually a good plan ) There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out. It will resemble this image...

5. Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the
pump as well as the filter/trap. Hopefully you'll find the item/debris that initiated the error code.

6. After removing any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test.

7. Run a load and watch for leaks, provided the error has cleared.

Leave the pump access door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks.

Ultimately you may have a faulty control, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first.

Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this indeed solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "fixya" and good luck.

If your garage door is up, and you break the beam (by walking through it, for example), you will get the "SENSOR WIRING INTERMITTENT CONNECTION ERROR CODE 1-4 SEE USER MANUAL". This is normal. Both of my Liftmaster 8550 openers do this. It's misleading, but this is what I've found to cause this error.

Hi! My LG washing machine is showing a "de" error code. It won't allow water into the drum. Please help


Hi, the error code "dE" signifies a door open error. This may simply be because the door is not all the way closed. This indicates that the washing machine door is not shutting, locking or opening. This means that there is something faulty with the door switch and locking mechanism . You should get this replaced or you may have water where you do not want it, though it could also represent a number of other problems. There may be a faulty door switch, a malfunctioning electrical connection or a damaged gasket.

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC-48 and the tape door won't close along with a 32.11 error code.....HELP


Try these steps:

1. Open the tape cover fully until it clicks open.
2. Turn the camcorder on to "VCR Mode."
3. With the cover still open and the camera in "VCR mode," take out the battery.
4. Put the battery back in--out should pop your tape.

Keep us updated.

Washer says f26 and won`t spin the clothes out. is there anything i can do?


This error code indicates that the door needs to be opened and closed.
The F26 code may appear the first time you try to use the washer. Open and close the door to clear the display.
The F26 code may also appear if the washer has run three cycles without the door being opened. Open and close the door to clear the display.
If opening and closing the door does not remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.

The above procedure is the specified way by whirlpool technicians to clear the error code.
