Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The E13 error code on most 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 13 to much soap in machine - 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 ererror code 13 to much soap in machine - macmarkus_28.jpgg src="http://i.fixya.net/uploads/images/macmarkus_28.jpg" alt=error code 13 to much soap in machine - macmarkus_29.jpgg" class="h_mi" />

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 :)

Code f02 comes up. washer will not spin.


F02 error could be caused by the over use of soap, you need to make sure your using 2 tablespoons of HE soap, 1/4 cap at the most.
Over sudsing, could cause the water pump to run longer, the pump is designed for 15 min duty cycle which means, 15 minutes on to 45 minutes off. The computer may sense too much soap, and continue to pump. HE soap will cure that, along with SUD error, possible F09 (overflow condition), you may also notice the timing is wrong, HE soap works well in these machines and F/l washer go hand in hand

Error code ''suds'' on maytag front loading washer


Press Chime and Extra rinse keys for three seconds or until the control beeps. You are now in service mode and your machine should say a new error code. Depending on what that code is, you might be able to reset your machine by unplugging it, and replugging it in. if your codes are now clear, try running machine on spin only or rinse cycle. DO NOT add more soap!!! If this corrects your problem, try running a load with out soap. You may have a lot of extra soap in your machine.

LG WM14225fd will not spin and le code


The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code.
(Load Error) can be an unbalanced load. Or, excessive use of soap causing too much suds, which can drag on the inner tub. Add only 1 tablespoon of HE soap max. per load.
Or maybe your Hall sensor died the part number is 6501KW2001A

LE Error code


Hello,

SOUNDS LIKE LOCKED ENGINE. SEVERAL DIFFERENT THINGS CAN CAUSE THIS ERROR CODE TO BE DISPLAYED.

1ST, USING THE WRONG SOAP WILL CAUSE THIS PROBLEM - USE HE SOAP ONLY!!! - IF YOU HAVE BEEN USING THE WRONG SOAP, BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE I WOULD ADVISE YOU TO RUN A FEW SHORT CYCLES WITH HOT WATER ONLY - THIS SHOULD HELP IN REMOVING ANY SOAP RESIDUE FROM THE SOAP SENSOR AND BOOT AREA.

2ND, THE CONTROL BOARD MAY BE DEFECTIVE - YOU NEED TO CHECK VOLTAGE OUTPUTS TO VERIFY.

3RD, BE SURE TO CHECK THE WIRING HARNESS - IT HAS BEEN KNOWN THAT WIRES SOMETIMES BECOME FRAYED AND LOOSE RESISTANCE.

4TH, THE SOAP SUDS SENSOR MAY BE FAULTY AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED.

Its giving me a 5d message


I have researched this problem and went to Whirlpool's web-site and it is actually not a 5, but an S. I thought the same thing so dont worry. Error code S d is the error code for too many suds in the machine which will either stop the washer in the middle of the cycle or it will complete the cycle and display it at the end letting you know it did not get all the soap out. My guess is that you have used a soap or fabric softener that is either not HE or you are putting too much soap or fabric softener in. It is ok to use soap that is not HE, but make sure that you only use a half a cap full because this soap has bubbling agents in it and would cause the S d error code. I actually use a half a cap of HE soap as well. Think about it, your HE washer uses less than half the water, but the soap companies kept the same same size cap on the soap bottle. I am thinking the soap companies are trying to sell more soap. Anyways, I digress, here is a link to the Whirlpool site where I found the error code: http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2948/kw/error%20code/r_id/108281/sno/1

Hope that helps!

I keep getting a 5d error code on my machine. What is this?


This is actually a SD code meaning to many suds. The machine will drain out mid-cycle when you push stop. You can then start the load over without adding any additional soap. Make sure you use the recommended amount of HE soap.
