Question about Bosch 3.81 cu ft WFMC530 1UC Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer
Welcome to FixYa.
According to Bosch this is what the error means ( as taken from my bosch service manual )
Door actuation 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 )
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.
