Question about Bosch Washing Machines
SOURCE: Water is has not drained
Check the following to address this issue.
1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).
2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

You need to check and clean pump filter, normally located behind a removeable plastic cover at bottom front of washer right hand side.
If no filter found there remove rear panel of washer, and clean pump from rear of washer.
Please rate my solution.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much. There were some wood splinters and a nail stuck in there! No wonder it wasn't working!"
SOURCE: I have a bosch washer
Most of the time you can reset the board by unplugging the unit and let it rest for minutes and the plug back in, if not you may need tech that specializes in Bosch so they can call the Bosch Tech line for the sequence, the reason I say this is because the engineering codes can be deleted and then you will need to purchase a new board.

You need to check the drain pump externally to see if the pumping is good Also remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain hose flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

you have cleaned it completely and nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly
then it means that the drain pump is bad and needs replacement. Please get back
