    Thanks for the reply. I keep getting the 03 fault code. After replacing the drain pump I am experiencing and additional problem. The new pump with a magnetic drive on the impeller seems to be slipping when under a load. When run dry it seems to operate properly, that is it turns. I put a volt meter on the pump and it read all the to the right when set to 250 ACV. It ran properly once and the pump sounded smoothaand strong. Could there be a problem with the pump drive?

First unplug the machine; then check all your connections and harnesses. Possible while you worked some wires could have come loose. Re. the code look in your users' manual............or surf on this site going to Bosch washing machines, from 'washing machines' above.

Please tell me somethng after you get this - yes, no or whatever...... I have quite a few solutions for which there is nothing............dont speak gama, type!

hi there,

the 03 error message is the machine not sensing the water level. since you can drain using the pump manually, check the water level switch, as it may be faulty.
