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) error code e 13 - 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 :)

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Error-code-13.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

All gas water heaters require periodic maintenance.
Tankless recommend yearly maintenance.

Code c4-13


Before calling service technician, open following link for Rheem troubleshoot resources including error codes, Rheem chat, and possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

Error codes are considered start-point for troubleshooting.
Error code C4 13 is bad oxygen sensor, inadequate incoming air supply, or bad venting. Also bad PC board, or internal wiring, or temperature set too high, damaged burner parts.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Error-code-13.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_Ventilating_tight_houses.pdf

Tankless require yearly maintenance to combustion chamber and burner parts.
Prescribed maintenance can correct some of the issues in error code 13.

1:Error Code 0 13 could be telling you that your "Air Filter" needs Cleaned.
2: If that does not work Call "Sharp" at 1-800-237-4277, follow the Prompts for "Air Conditioners".
3: When you reach a person give them Reference # 5263448. that is for your current problem, I have already spoke to them about.

Hope I Helped
