20 Most Recent Bosch Nexxt 300 Series WFMC2201UC Questions & Answers

I had this problem. I tried to interupt a cycle just after it started and then couldn't start the cycle again, with the E27 code coming up.

e27 refers to a problem with the door locking mechanism which could be due to a number of causes. The problem I had was with the solenoid in the door, not a genuine problem with the door latch mechanism.

Here is how I fixed it:

(1) Set knob to off

(2) Hold down spin selector and Allergy rinse buttons and turn the knob to the LEFT (right does not work)

(3) The display then shows a number of program codes P01 to P14. (Pressing spin selector rotates through the codes).

(4) Press spin selector until you reach P02 on the display, then press the start button, the door will click and the machine will begin a cycle.

(5) Turn the knob to OFF, and then you should be able to use the machine as normal.

I don't know your model, but the filter will be accessible without getting into the innards of the machine.

Look for something that looks like it might turn to unlock, then pull out located low down at the front or the back of the machine.

On my top loader the filter is housed in the spindle of the agitator post. Pulls out and reveals lint bag etc.

Welcome to FixYa.

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.

**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) 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 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.

Clean the dispenser with boiling water and see if it is just a sticking problem, these get gummed up after a while.

Possible that the drain pump is running due to a small leak is present at the base of the machine, providing this has a metal cover on it ,it gets water in here which activates afloat switch switching on the pump hence draining the machine to avoid possible flooding, if the pump does not appear to be running then the drain hose is too low resulting in syphon effect,in which case raise it...Good luck

The code is related to it not being able to drain. The most common cause is suds in the drum from the wrong detergent. One of the other things that can cause this is the drain pump is plugged with something like a sock or other debris. If you want to drain it, you can try to move the drain hose to a lower level and see if gravity will drain it. This might not work if something is physically blocking the drain. You can also use a wet and dry vacuum cleaner to draw out the water through the drain hose. IF that does not work then you have to remove the bottom panel under the door and locate the drain cap. WHEN YOU REMOVE THIS ALL THE WATER COMES OUT. Get ready with something to catch the water. When you take the plug off, there is a filter or trap that you can clean. Once you have done this then you should be able to run the rinse and spin drain to get the machine back in order after you put the plug back in.
