    Default Bosch Washer won't drain

    I have a Bosch Nexxt series front load washer, (model number WFMC220RUC/15) that is giving error code E13 and doesn't drain properly. I have opened the drain trap in the front and found a few coins and such. I cleared all that out, but the problem persists.

    I then removed the drain tube on the back to see if it was blocked. Water flows freely through the tube, but when I stuck a finger into the pipe it is attached to on the back of the machine it seemed fairly full of gunk. I augured it out carefully, but still no luck.

    Any ideas what is wrong?

    Bosch washer not spinning or draining, usually results in a foreign object lodged inside of the drain pump assembly. This is a pretty simple repair and will save you money repairing it yourself.
    Here is a rough breakdown on how to clean a Bosch washing machines drain pump.
    On the lower right hand side of the washers front panel there is a round access cover panel with a small hole in the top of it. Place a small screwdriver tip inside and push just enough spin the access panel around and off.When the panel comes off you will see the drain pumps twist handle. Try to bail as much water from the insides of the washer before you pull the filter housing out. Pulling the drain pumps filter out before removing the water inside will result in the water rushing out all over the floor.

    I found...

    Condition: Drain time exceeded

    Check/Repair: Remove any clogs from the house drain for the washer. Remove any clogs or kinks from the washer drain hose. Unplug the washer and check the large-item filter in the drain pump for a clog. If the drain pump is defective, replace it.

    Maybe the drain pump itself has been damaged...
