Question about Bosch Washing Machines

Open Question

Hi, I have a Bosch SMS40M08AU/80. I have had the E24 error code a few times over the few years I have owned it. I always clean the filters, put it back together and it works fine for a couple of months then the E24 code comes on again. This time when E24 came on I cleaned the filters, checked hoses were clear, but still the error code came on. I changed the drain pump for a new one, reset machine after installation, it ran perfect for a few days, and the E24 code is back on. Checked all filters etc. Again, but the E24 code keeps coming back on and it isn't draining. Any ideas please? Cheers Lee.

SOURCE: bosch frontload washer will not drain

Hello Mamma5, It sounds like the drain pump is either seized or jammed. The drain pump has an anti jam device in it. Since you have figured out how to get into the drain pump, try turning the inpeller in the back. It will be a little hard to turn as the magnets in the motor will fight you on this. Look close in case there is anykind of thread wrapped around the inpeller. If so, then you can free the pump. If you cannot free it to run, advise the repairman what you found so he can bring a drain pump with him.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Bosch WFF1800 - not spinning

HI,

move the kicking plate on the front-bottom of the machine. You will see o circular lid there, turn it on anti-clockvise to open. All of the water blocked will come from there, be careful. Look carefully that there are some objects blocking the water draining. Then turn on the machine on draining programme, the plastic rotor should turn fastly when the machine is on. If it is not running, change the pump motor. If it is running, but machine is not draining again you can understand that there is an objeck stuck on the hose between drum and pump motor. Lay down the machine on its rear facade, you will see a large and black hose between drum and pump motor. When you remove it, you will see that there is something that blocks water running.

thank you for using fixya,rate my answer,

SOURCE: Whirlpool washing machine "clean pump" error light.

take top off machine. look down right side and you will see a disc about 50 mm in diameter, attached to this is a small flexible rubber pipe, take this off at the disc and blow through it,( you will need some type of pipe to connect to the rubber pipe).this worked for me with the very same problem.

Disconnect the drain hoses and check for blockages. If no blockage "time" the drain interval. If it's more than 6 minutes it's the pump. Also make sure you're using the correct type of soap so the ball check valve on the bottom of the outer drum isn't getting fouled with excessive suds. Also disconnect the drain hose from your house plumbing and let it free flow on it's own. This will tell you if the blockage is in your plumbing and not in the machine.

SOURCE: LG WM2277 "OE" ERROR. PLEASE HELP

The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

Shows error 24 on my dishwasher Bosch


Possible causes for the E24 error code:
The drain hose could be blocked
The dishwasher filter may need to be cleaned
Brand new garbage disposal. The installer may have forgotten to remove the 'knockout' plug
After fixing the problem, reset the dishwasher according to the owner's manual

What does E24 displayed when wash cycle finished mean


Check the filter and drain pump.

Bosch dishwasher E24 error code The error code E24 on Bosch dishwashers is a drain error code although it can be triggered by the circulation pump or main control issue. The first thing to check is your drain system, make sure the filters are not plugged and the check valve is in place. Your check valve is located in the bottom of your tub on the side wall, generally white in color. If those two things are looking good check your drain hose is it kinked or clogged? (Did you just replace your garbage disposal, if you answered yes, remove the plastic plug that comes on the new disposal.)
The next thing to check is your drain pump, when you press cancel can you hear a humming noise? If not you will need to check for power to the drain pump, there should be 120v. If all the items in your drain system test OK and you are still getting the code the next step will require you to remove the dishwasher from the cabinet.
After the dishwasher has been removed from the cabinet you will need to get to the main control on the lower right side. Make sure the breaker is turned off to the dishwasher at this time. Remove the connector with the three grey and three black wires. Your looking for 89 Ohms on the grey wires going to the drain pump, and 14 Ohms across the black wires going to the circulation pump. If those both check out you will need to replaced the main control.
( Just a quick update if your wash motor is not working properly this will also make the code come up. If the brushes in the motor get old this will cause the motor to drag and that's what triggers the error code.) Hope this helps!!!

Bosch silence plus 50 dba dishwasher not draining it says E24


Error codes are cryptic but usually indicate the obvious. Probably drain pipe blocked with junk build up. Clear blockage. Spring curtain rod up the pipe. Ouch....
Perhaps a little draino.

My bosch dishwasher she6af02uc is showing an E-24 error what is this


error code E24 = Drain hose blockage or pump impeller failure, suppose running it with filter unsecured would allow some goodies to get in there.
Changing the fine mesh filter should fix this.

My dishwasher Bosch SHEAR55UC show E24 on screen , didn't work all of process ?


Hi.

E24 is draining error:

Turn off the appliance. Check drain well and filter for blockage. Clean drain. Check drain hose at the back to make sure it is not kinked. Dry water from inside the appliance manually (with power not connected). If that does not fix the problem, then pressure switch in the drain system is usually responsible. The part to be tested are pump, pressure switch and drain lines.

If you need parts or diagrams see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?
