Since this is only 3 months old it is still under manufacturers warranty. Anything you may do to the Washing machines may void it's warranty. I work at an authorized service center and have seen too many times when people think they can fix something themselves and end up with a voided warranty. You really should take it in or have a authorized Bosch service center come to your home and check it out for you. In home service is offered by manufacturers and is normally covered by the warranty.

Anything you may be able to do to get it working this time will most likely happen again since it has happened before. Getting it serviced by an authorized Bosch service center may fix the problem permanently.

This may not be the answer you are looking for, but it is the smartest thing you can do. A little hassle now getting it fixed properly will probably save you money and more of a hassle in the future.

The E-13 error code is a drain timeout code. This means the pump has run a certian amount of time without fully draining itself. This could be anything from a clogged drainline in your home to a clogged drainline in the machine, your pump is clogged, pump is burned up, no power to the pump, bad board etc. Most of the time its either something jammed in the pump, or its burned up (from something being jammed in it). Just have to take her apart to find out for sure.

What does e13 on bosch exell 8 mean


This e13 code flashes with the "rinse" indicator light and indicates a blockage in the drain. This is often caused when you use too much detergent, or detergent that is not designed for a high-efficiency washer. Look for detergent with the letters "HE" on the package. Run a rinse cycle to remove any excess suds from the washer.

Washer won't drain, E:13 code flashing


From user manual:

Indicator light "rinse" is lit and display is flashing "E:13" with no water remaining in the drum.
For some reason drain pump is blocked.
Clean the water drainage pipe and/or drain hose.

E13 error on Bosch wkd28350gb - pump is ok


E13 is the error for not draining ,, OR a suds overload issue?

The error code indicates a long drain condition. If the unit is not draining completely check the coin trap/clean out again. If it is clear then reach in there and rotate the pump impellar with your finger. It should have a little resistance but not a lot. If it is catchy, or hard to turn then replace the pump.
If the wash still won't drain and give you the error code again and you have checked and cleared the filter to the drain pump the you need to replace the drain pump and then clear the codes from the washer computer.

Bosch E13 error on washer - shows e-13 and door will not open.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

E13 error in your Bosch WFMC washer is a drain error and is displayed when the drain time exceeds & the washer is unable to drain so the door won't open sometimes when this error is displayed. You will have to clean the drain trap in the bottom right hand corner. You can stick a straighten paper clip in the access panel located inside the front bottom panel through the whole and then turn the access panel counter clockwise to unscrew the plastic drain cap behind it. After everything is cleaned and the error returns then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

E13


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.

Error code E:13 on my 500 plus series washer


Hi,
The E13 error code on your Bosch washer refer to a drainage problem or the pump time might have been exceeded
Either it might be due to a clogged pump, improper detergent being used, ( must use "HE" detergent ) hence suds not allowing a proper drain cycle. You should clean water drainage pipe and/or drain hose. Turn selector to off and restart 'drain, program or, on 500 plus machines, the 'refresh' program. It also says this is caused by using too much detergent. Bosch recommends using half of what the manufacturer recommends when using HE detergents. They don't recommend regular detergents. First run the short wash or refresh cycle without detergent and hopefully your lines will clear.

Thank you !!

Bosch Nexxt 300 washer takes hours to do a single load


We had similliar problem. We were overloading the wash barrel and using too much soap. The soap was foaming causeing the washer to add rinse cycles hinse more time to the cycle. Make sure your soap has the HE ( high efficiency ) label on it. Hope this helps.

Washer not draining and rinsing


Hello Wet Towels, well to be honest outside of the test program I have never seen a fault code E13. If it was an error E03 I would check my water to make sure it was turned on, the cold inlet hose wasn't pinched, or debre filling the filter screens in the hose or water valve. That is what the care and use says about E03. In the back of your owners manual it tells you what the fault means and how to correct it. If this doesn't work call for service to resolve your issue. Hope this helps.
