Question about Bosch 3.81 cu ft WFMC530 1UC Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer
The E13 error code on your Bosch washer refer to a drainage problem or the pump time might have been exceeded
Either it might be due to a clogged pump, improper detergent being used, ( must use "HE" detergent ) hence suds not allowing a proper drain cycle. You should clean water drainage pipe and/or drain hose. Turn selector to off and restart 'drain, program or, on 500 plus machines, the 'refresh' program. It also says this is caused by using too much detergent. Bosch recommends using half of what the manufacturer recommends when using HE detergents. They don't recommend regular detergents. First run the short wash or refresh cycle without detergent and hopefully your lines will clear.
Thank you !!

SOURCE: e13 error code with my
As with some of the other solutions to this error after unplugging from the wall and popping the cover off and unlatching the door with the "emergency" latch release I was able to drain the tub wuth my shop vac then removing the cover to the pump cleanout was able to vacuum the remaining water from the pump . I discovered several buttons and other debris in the fins of the pump, removed those and reassembled. Good as new!

Timed out on drain cycle, basically you either have an outlet blockage or something is trapped in the pump, you can check the pump by opening the bottom right flap on the front panel,manually emptying the w/m and checking the pump filter for coins etc. Also, check the outlet isn't blocked.

John-I have the same problem. I called service, they told me to unplug it (or turn off the breaker) for 30 mins, then turn back on. That should reset it. However, for me, it didn't do a thing. He said if that didn't work it's time for a service call.

On the small round disk at the bottom right...insert a small round pointed object into the hole and push gently, while do this rotate the disk clockwise. This will allow you to remove the disk. Look inside and there will be a slender plastic rod next to the drain clean out. Pull down gently to manually unlock the washer door. Unfortunately that will unlock the door but probably not fix what caused the issue in the first place.

Hi, the emergency latch release is behind the small round panel below the main tub door. A string will be threaded through the pump housing and you just need to pull it to open the main door. To open the access door ( small round panel ) you'll require a small round needle shaped object or really narrow screwdriver. Put it in the small hole in the panel push in slightly and turn to about 6 o'clock...clockwise that is. The small round cover should now come off and expose the pump with the string going through a hook on the pump housing. Let me know how you make out and also if you require further assistance with this problem. Good luck. Macmarkus :)
