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.

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.

My 3 month old bosch 300 series washer isn't draining completely and errors at the start of the rinse cycle with E13 falshing along with the rinse light. Help!


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.

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.

e13 is excessive drain time, normally down to blockages in the pump filter. this is at the front right hand side normally behind a flap and should unscrew counter clockwise.

My bosch washing machine model WFVC6450Uc/19 FD 9002/901476 has E:13 flashing. i was able to drain the water manually but now the door locked there is beeping sound when i try to start it. how to fix it


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

E13 error in your Bosch WFVC 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.

THE bOSCH 300 SERIES WASHING MACHINE IS NOT DRAINING PROPERLY AND IT GIVES ME A MESSAGE e13. wHAT DOES E13 MEAN? pLEASE HELP


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The E13 error code on most series Bosch including the "Nexxt" series 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, and a pair of mechanics gloves are recommended due to extremely sharp edges...safety first**

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 is typically the reason for a locked door, 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) macmarkus_26.jpg
  2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.
macmarkus_30.jpg
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 green 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 :)

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 !!
