SOURCE: e13 error code with my

I had an E-13 error code on my Bosch 500 series washer.  The drain pump  impeller was plugged.  Access the drain impeller at the bottom front right corner.  Just put a pen in the hole and turn the cover.  Then you need to manually drain the washer.  I used a shop vac by just turning the cap until it started to leak and vacuum the water as it comes out, this takes quite a while.  When you get it drained you can take the cap completely off.  When I did I found a wipe in the impeller.  I took it out and put it back together and the washer worked just as before.  Good Luck!!

SOURCE: water wont drain

You can check the drain or the filter. You will have to pull it out of the space it is now to access it. Items will get stuck in the drain clogging it.

SOURCE: my bosch wfk2401 front loader is stuck on spin

There is a door bottom right of the system which has a screw out (by hand) plug.
Remove this and ensure there are no foreign objects such as coins, bobby pins etc stuck.

I have found this to be a problem with the Bosch systems and cost me $150 the first time.

Ensure you have some towels as when you open the plug, water will escape

I have a Bosch front loader washer. It has begun leaking water out of the bottom, and often will not run through a full cycle, but we sometimes get lucky. I tried it today and 5 mins into the cycle it...

You have to inspect water outlet from the drum. When it starts filling water, water leaking out at the same time. So computer sees, thet water level is not going up, so it stops. You should call service, or if you have someone, who ca open and see. Some times you can find it yourselves

Error code E12 Bosch washing machine front loader

I have the Bosch Vision 500 Series with the E:12 error. My issue was the water inlet valve. When the washer was filling up very little water could be seen coming into the washer and if you just hit the button eventual you would get enough water usually three times during entire wash cycle. Replaced the water inlet valve myself in about 5 minutes very easy. YouTube videos show exactly how to do it. Now the water comes in almost covering half of the front window. Just finished first wash without and problems.

Is it getting enough water?

For front loaders, they usually have the level underneath the door, they use small amounts of water, but they spin so all the clothes do get
soaked with water.

Somehow, she added water to raise the amount of water in a bosch front end loader and it overflows when adgitating. how can I manually remove water?

take the drain hose at the back and lower it so its beneath the water level in the drum--the water should flow out--or else open the filter at the front--but thats a bit messy
