Danimaldds there are 2 pumps in this dw, a drain pump and a circulation pump. If it is the drain pump that is running, look in the base under the machine. Remove the kick plate and see if there is water in the base. If so remove the water and see if the pump shuts down. If not look to the left side under the machine there is a red plastic stick, lift up on it with a wooden or plastic spoon. Do this a couple of times. It is possible the overfil float is stuck. If the circulation pump keeps running, then the control unit is the cause. Hope this helps

    What I am talking about removing is the black toe kick plate at the bottom. This will allow you to reach in a see if water is in the base. Remember to turn off the power 1st to avoid getting shocked.

    It is on the left side behind the water valve next to the side wall about 4inches in from the front.It is easier to see when the outer door panel and the stiffner plate is removed. If you do that 2 blocks will fall off. They go on only 1 way on the hinges.

I have a shu43co2uc bosch dishwasher that fails self test and displays CL on display. I believe this is a bad ntc sensor. the tub has water in it an inch or two and it does get hot but pump runs a few

If the owner's manual does not give an explanation of the error code is, in the troubleshooting guide, you'll need a service / repair manual. Perhaps calling around to a few local appliance parts and repair shops- someone can clue you in on what the problem is and how to repair it.

My Bosch WFK2401 washer has stopped filling. The cycle will count down and the pump will run to drain (but nothing to drain!). I have checked the supply lines, there is water and the filter screens are...

I suspect the solenoid on the water input connection has failed, this is the unit that allows water into the machine , if you know a bit open the lid and you should see this just inside behind the cold water connection.

Remove washing machine filter for cleaning: How do I remove the filter on my Bosch class iXX front load washing machine for cleaning? We can turn it 1/3 anticlockwise but it won't pull out.

Something must be jamming the filter. You will need to just keep working it. If you cannot get it to open, you will need to replace the whole assembly.

A key has appeared on the display panel and the machine won't work. What does this mean?

The key icon indicated that the door is locked(is that so cn you open door) most likely the door wont open once cycle is complete is because not all the water has drained,usually that occurs due to the screen on the pump filter being blocked, to clean that blockage access the pump via the door on bottom of front panel or by removing kick(toe)plate and you will see a small black plastic corregated hose,remove the plug from it and catch water into a bucket,pan or bowl ect,once all water is drained unscrew the lint screen located near that hose and clean what is blocking it

Bosch Vision 500 washer won't fill with water. i! Yesterday we got a E13 error with the washer. The door wouldn't unlock, so I removed the front panel to unlock it manually. I also cleaned out...


You are right, E13 is a long drain time error and to solve this issue the pump filter assembly should be cleaned completely. There is a tiny hole you can stick a pin through in the access panel on the lower front right corner. Push a pin through the whole and turn the access panel counter clockwise and it will remove so that you can unscrew the plastic drain cap behind it. Remove the plastic drain cap and clear the drain behind it. After doing all these things if the issue returns then it means the drain pump is faulty and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The intake water pressure has reduced.

Shut off the water to the machine.

Remove both Hot and Cold hoses from the machine.

Loot into the openings of the valve and check the filter screens.

Filter screens can also be located in the hose ends.

The screen can be pulled out with a small tool. Be careful not to gouge the screens so you can reuse them. DO NOT USE THE MACHINE WITHOUT THE SCREENS. Water can pick up small crunchy bits from anywhere from the city pump to and throughout the house and even a tiny bit can ruin an expensive washer valve.

We have to reset daily A-7

Before calling service technician, open following link for troubleshooting resources including error codes, manual, links to bosch, phone number, :

A7 is outlet temperature sensor fault.
Temperature below freezing or above 210 degrees F

1) Check red wire connections at hot water temperature sensor. Clean terminals with an eraser. If badly corroded, replace sensor and wire harness. (See Fig. 63, page 46 in manual).
2) Sensor may trip if water temperature drops below freezing to protect heater from freezing conditions. Any damage due to freezing conditions is not covered under warranty.
3) Clean inlet filter screen and clear any debris out of shower heads, faucet aerators and whole house filters.
4) In areas where water has a high mineral content, periodic descaling may be necessary.

My Bosch Dishwasher doesn't clean

Check the following to address this issue--

1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.
