  • Fix error code E17 & E13 Bosch Vision 500 with Aquashield

    Wow.... Fantastic, ShannonT1! My clothes weren't coming out fully dry, and I was getting a 'SUDS' warning before the E13 error. Thanks to your excellent instructions, I'm confident that I have cleared the issue (I did already replace the drive belt, too, but that was only $15 in parts).Some additional thoughts for first-timers:1) There are catches in each of the 8(!) small holes that you can see in the seccnd picture. So when my front panel wouldn't just come down, I gently used a flat-head screwdriver pushed in between the 'main' and lower panel and rotated in various places to slowly pry the lower panel off.2) Make sure that you clean all dirt out of the pump cover screw threads, so that it doesn't bind next time. Use a damp thin cloth (those blue 'Shop Rags' on a roll work well) rota...see more »Wow.... Fantastic, ShannonT1!

Use a damp thin cloth (those blue 'Shop Rags' on a roll work well) rotating COUNTER-clockwise are a good start. I then screwed JUST the cover in part way, removed it, and scraped the dirt to loosen it while sucking it up with a vacuum. Repeat until threads are clean.As for a pedestal, I made my own out of 2, 10' pieces of 2x10s with a 7/8" plywood top and some 2x4 legs to level it.It has held both my washer and dryer for years with no problem. Make a standard box (with a central cross-piece; looks like an 8 from the top) with 8, 2x10 corner braces (leave enough room for a 2x4 leg inside the brace). I glued closed cell foam to the bottom of any wood that will sit on the concrete floor. It raises the washer and dryer 11" at the back and about 14" at the front (due to the sloped floor; my drain is right in front of my washer). Total cost, about $50.
