Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The E13 error code on the WFMC series Bosch washer`s refer to a drainage problem, as you may or may not already know. ( or in Bosch terms "pump time exceeded" )

Anyway, here`s the most likely way to remedy a E13 code.

**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) so just got a used - macmarkus_26.jpg
  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).


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


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.macmarkus_28.jpg





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. 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 drain pump, 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 solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

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


Regards,

Macmarkus :)

E13 is a dispenser error the appliance diagnostic believes the appliance is full of water so won't release the lock first thing to try is the drain filter bottom right hand corner at the front unscrew it clean and refit just be prepared it's likely u will get some water out it when u remove it.

An error occured we cannot print a document which the orange light was blink semoustanousely


Damage canon printers, can be identified from the number of lights blinking in orange. So, you calculate, how many times the orange light is blinking. Example E2, E3, E4, E5, E8, E9, E13, E14, E15, etc.

Samsung SMH 8165 ST E13 Error message. Oven


I own the same Microwave and it just gave me the same error code E-13. I was heating a large plastic coffee mug of cold water using the "beverage" control. The only thing out of the ordinary was I used very cold water from the Fridge. Maybe this had something to do with the Max time error. Hopefully this was a one off error.

Bosh axxis filter. how do i clean it? soap and


First of all the item I referred to in my question is actually a heat exchanger located below the dryer drum.
The maintenance man in the condo said remove it and clean it with soap and water. I did have a garden hose with a sprayer so I used the bath tube to give it a good cleaning.
It now looks clean and I cleaned the housing where this part is located with vaccuum and wet cleaning.

How do I reset the error message on a dell 1710 after I replaced the drum? I held down the reset keys. Where do I know where the erroe is?


If reseting the unit power the reset button does not work then try to unplug it for 60 seconds. Also to your question are you trying to find out what the error code means or what is exactly wrong? If you just replaced your drum then I would uninstall it and reinstall it again to make sure that it is sitting in there correctly. Sometimes you may think it is and it is not seated right
