Washing Machine E18 Error Code Fix Bosch Siemens Pump Filter blocked

Hello everybody it’s ‘Lurgs’ here welcome to my channel and today have you got an Error E18 on your Bosch washing machine? This basically means your filter is blocked you’ve probably got some coins in there or a hair clip or something. I’ll show you how to remove the filter give it a good clean and then put it back in again, right let’s get cracking. This is the E18 Error that I’ve got on the front panel display, so the first thing you need to do is take out your wet washing, normally if you get that Error E18 it will stop mid cycle, now the next thing to do is switch off the power at the plug and then you need to turn off the mains cold water feed because we’re going to be removing the drainage pump filter, now right down here on the right hand side at the front you’ve got this small plastic panel just push that clip down at the top and then remove, and the first thing to do is remove this hose here, now you’ll need a small tray to catch any water you can pull that hose out a little bit and it’s just got a small cap on the end, so just unclip that cap and this is just draining out any excess water inside the drainage pump filter, you will still get some water when you unscrew the filter but this is just to get rid of most of it, and there’s a link above now about how to install a brand new washing machine, ok once all that water has come out you can put that hose back, remember to put the cap back on nice and securely do not leave that off otherwise the next time you do a wash you will get water all over your floor, now just get a small tray because you will get some excess water out of here from the drainage filter, you just turn it anti-clockwise don’t unscrew it completely and just let the water start draining out, now if you get too much excess water you can always tighten it up quickly, empty that tray and then unscrew it again to get any excess water back out again, and there’s a link above now about how to put the childproof lock on your Bosch washing machine, so I’m just gonna empty this now, just put a small towel down on the floor so you’re just turning anti-clockwise again just nice and slow, I can already hear that there’s something in there and there is the culprit an old penny, unfortunately not a gold penny now the normal culprits are coins and hair clips so just have a look inside make sure there’s nothing else stuck inside there, and while you’ve got the filter out just make sure that propeller turns easily, I’ve just got a flat bladed screwdriver and this is moving freely so that’s good, now this filter is actually looking in excellent condition so there’s no need to clean that but if it was all gunky and dirty just give that a clean under normal hot water, now just put the filter back in you just turn it clockwise and just keep turning it until it locks in in the up right position, and there’s a link above now about how to remove the dispenser drawer on your Bosch washing machine if you need to give that a good clean, I’m purposely going to leave this front panel off just so that the first wash I can just check that there’s no leaks on the filter, next thing you need to do is turn the cold water feed back on just do this very slowly, once you’ve done that you then need to turn the power back on, make sure you haven’t got wet fingers, then put your next bit of washing in and there’s a link above now about how to open a jammed door on your Bosch washing machine. Close the door and then start a cycle I’m just going to put it on a super quick 30-minute wash, put one of these liquid gel balls in which we’ve been using lately ,close the door and then start the wash.

Once you’re happy that there’s no leaks out of the filter that you took out and put back in you can just put that front panel back on again, so let’s just put that back on definitely no leaks there, and there’s a link above now about how to clean your uPVC windows frames so they stay clean. I’ll tell you what that’s made me pretty thirsty it’s time for a lovely cup of tea, and also our Esther is very thirsty as well, not for tea just for some water.

Washer Repair- Replacing the Direct Drive Water Pump (Whirlpool Part #3363394)

Hi, it’s Jack from AustinAppliancePros. So you’ve decided to replace the water pump on your washer. It’s not too hard of a job. You’ll need a few tools.

A good pair of slip joint pliers, a flat blade screwdriver and a putty knife. With a little bit of time I should be able to show you how easy this is to do. Before we get started changing the water pump we need to do a couple of things.

First of all, disconnect the appliance from the power supply. It’s also a good idea to disconnect the fill hoses and the drain hoses because the best way to do this job is with the appliance either tilted back or laying directly on its back on the floor. You’re going to want to have a container handy because you’re going to have some water left in that drain hose that you need to get rid of.

Now that we’ve prepared the appliance for servicing the first thing we need to do is tilt the console back so we can disconnect the cabinet support clips. On the outer edges of our console there are some spring clips at the front. Slide a putty knife in underneath the console and engage that spring and tilt the console up. Take caution on this side (gestures to left side) where you place your putty knife. You want to keep it right out at the edge because there is a lid switch there that you don’t want to damage.

The console will support itself. Now we can disconnect the lid switch. For the support clips that hold the cabinet to the back take a flat blade screwdriver slide it down into the channel of the clip, tilt back on the screwdriver and out and the clip will come out.

Now we’re ready to remove the cabinet from the machine and get on with our service. Open the lid and standing in front of the machine we’re going to lift up. Now we’ve go the washer where we need to have it to get access to our water pump. You should use two people for this job.

We’re going to want to lay the machine on its back so we can access the pump properly. Before we lay the washer on its back we will tilt the console back into position. Support the back panel and tilt the washer backwards. Gently lower it to the floor. Now we have access to our pump.

Before we begin this repair the splash plate above the pump does have a few sharp edges on it. You’re going to be working in this area so the best thing to do is to put a bit of duct tape across that just so we don’t cut ourselves while we’re working in this area. Now we’ll take our channel lock pliers and remove these hose clamps. It’s best to have a container handy at this point just in case there’s any water in these hoses.

There may or may not be. Better safe than sorry. The next step will be to remove the pump. You can either use a flat blade screwdriver under these clips, or your thumb. Just tilt them back, give them a quarter turn and they’ll pull right out of there.

Now our pump is ready to lift off of the motor shaft. Notice the D-shaped shaft on the motor that mates with the pump. Before we position the pump on to the motor make sure that the shaft is lined up and that the 4 legs of the pump set in to the little receptacles on the motor.

Take our clips, rotate them and just snap them into place. Reconnect our hoses making sure that they go fully on to the pump to the stop blocks. Take your channel lock pliers, replace the clamps. You can remove your protective tape at this point and the washer’s ready to stand back on its legs. When reinstalling the cabinet we need to make sure that we engage the two tabs on either side of the base frame with the elongated holes on the bottom of the cabinet located in the front and rear on both sides.

Here’s the location of the holes in the frame of the cabinet that line up with the tabs on the base frame. Ok, holding the lid in one hand with your other hand grab the inside of the cabinet and the tub opening, tilt it back toward you and line it up with the frame. Lower it back and line up the tabs on the frame.

Now we’re ready to secure the back to the cabinet with the retaining clips. Take the elongated portion, slide it into the opening on the back of the cabinet, pull it forward into the opening in the cabinet and press it down into place. Now that it’s firmly in place we can reconnect our lid switch harness. Make sure it locks in place. Now it’s a matter of reinstalling our console.

Locate the rear tabs in the cabinet, line up the springs and snap it into place. Good luck with your repair.

How to Remove a Stuck item from a Washing Machine Drum

Hi I’m Jack from AustinAppliancePros In this article I’ll be showing you how to remove a bra wire or other foreign object from your washing machine. If during or after a wash cycle your machine starts to make a strange noise when the drum turns it may well mean that you have a foreign object trapped between the inner drum and the outer drum. Now it’s essential you remove this as soon as possible as it could perforate the drum causing flooding in your home and irreparable damage to your machine. Safety first: Always unplug an appliance before carrying out any work. Now as soon as you hear the noise coming from something catching use a torch and look carefully at the perforations in the inner drum.

Slowly turn the drum and try to identify where the noise is coming from. You may be lucky and spot the end of a bra wire and using your hands very carefully or a pair of pliers ease the bra wire out of the perforations. You might need to turn the drum a little to ease it out.

The next problem I’m going to look at is a small item of clothing trapped between the inner and outer drum. If you spin your drum and you can see and feel a lot of resistance in the drum it may mean that something is trapped between the inner drum and the outer drum. So what you can do is put a little gap in the seal in between the seal and the inner drum.

Turning the drum again you may be lucky enough to see the item that’s stopping it from turning. However if you can’t it’s a good idea to use a thin flexible probe such as a cable tie. And work that around the outside of the inner drum to see if you can feel where the object is Ah, I can actually see it and feel that we have a cloth trapped between the inner and outer drum. If you can pull that out with your fingers great but what may well happen in that case is the item will break in half if it’s a rag such as this and you don’t want the other half being trapped inside the machine. So to remove this i’m going to use a flathead screwdriver and wedge that between the inner drum and the door seal and then lever it back just to give me a bit more space to access the item inside.

There we go, managed to get it all out. After removing the object give your drum a spin to ensure that there isn’t too large of a gap between the drum and the seal. If there is you can easily knock the drum back into place using a wooden mallet as you don’t want a larger gap to appear making it even easier for clothes and objects to get trapped behind. If you’ve been unsuccessful in finding the object between the inner drum and the seal it may well be that it slipped underneath the drum. To access underneath the drum you’re going to have to remove either the heater or the sump hose to find the object.

I’ve just removed the back of the Machine and I’ll take the heater out to show you how an item could be trapped in the heater itself. And there we can see the item. If you haven’t been unlucky and find that the item isn’t on the heater. It’s worth taking a torch and having a good look inside the heater housing to see if anything’s inside there.

Failing that you want to gain access to the sump hose from the bottom of the machine. In that instance it’s better if you put the machine on to its side so you can access the sump hose safely. When putting the heater back in make sure that you push it in firmly and that it engages with the bracket. I have put the machine on to its side and remove the base plate here, and here we can see the sump hose.

I’ve also loosen the clip so we can ease the hose off and here we can see underneath the drum. So this is another way to access underneath the drum. You can also tilt the machine back upright and use a torch to shine through the perforations and then if you see an object you could push it through and access it via the sump opening here.

On some models of washing machine is possible to remove the drum paddle from inside the drum which is another way to access underneath the drum. However on this model that’s not possible. If you’ve looked at all the techniques In this article and you still can’t find the offending item it may well be they will have to dismantle the drum itself. To do that please see another eSpares video how to replace the drum bearings in your washing machine.

Remember spares and accessories for all the appliances around your home can be found on the eSpares website. Thanks for watching.

Washing Machine Repair – Replacing the Spring with Insulators (Frigidaire Part # 134144700)

Hi it’s Jack from AustinAppliancePros. Today, we are going to show you how to change the suspension spring on your washer and it’s a really easy job, all you’ll need is a Phillips screwdriver and a pair of locking pliers, let me show you how we do it. Now before we begin this repair we will need to disconnect the power to the appliance, so simply pull the plug and we’ll also need to move the appliance out far enough that we can access the side of the cabinet, to lift on the tub. Now if it’s a stacking unit you’ll need to remove the dryer from the top of the washer, or if it’s a side by side unit, you will need to remove the top panel, it’s held in place with some Phillips screws across the back, and then it will slide forward, and then lift up and you can un-hinge it and remove it, to determine which of the springs is broken, and then you will need to have access to that side. Now next we are going to remove the lower front panel and again it’s held in place with a couple of Phillips screws so just remove the two bottom screws that hold that access panel in place, and now with the screws removed we’ll just tilt that it on the bottom of that panel and let it drop down, there’s a couple of locating pins that fit into these two holes, and then we can set that panel aside.

Now with the lower access panel removed we next should inspect the shocks to make sure that they are both in good condition, typically if the spring is broken, either one or both shocks will need to be replaced, so you should order those up at the same time and they do come as a pair. Now what we need to do next is to raise that tub up high enough, that we can disconnect the broken spring and install the new spring but we’ll need to support the weight of that tub, so you need an assistant to do this, and then just simply taking some wooden blocks we’ll set them in between the base frame and the bottom of the tub or in the motor area just enough to support that tub and we will take caution that we don’t damage the tub in doing that. Now the tub is heavy so make sure that you have enough strength and support to lift that tub up before we try to block in place. Now because those springs are under a fair bit of tension and we’re working around some rather sharp metal edges, we should put some protective gloves on and some protective eye wear as well. Next we’ll remove the retaining strap that fits over top of the top hook of the spring, it’s held in place with two Phillips screws, remove and set that aside and now if the old spring is still intact you will need a pair of locking pliers to remove that, simply grasp it from the top, get a good clamp on it and then while lifting up on the inside, pull it up enough lean it out of the hole and let it drop back down.

Remove the old spring and discard it, now when installing the new spring we’ll put the large hook on the bottom, and we’ll pull that through the loop on the tube first making sure that we have it lined up, so that the top hook faces towards the outside of the cabinet. Now you probably won’t be able to pull that spring up through that hole with just your hands, so take a piece of cord or heavy gauge wire and then we will just form a loop to hook the top of that spring, and we’ll pull it out through. So again engage the spring on the tub, slide your cord or your wire down through the slotted opening that the spring will come out through, hook it onto the top of the spring and then pull it straight up through and then bring it over and lay it in the hole, now you can talk a little bit of that tension off, pull the cord out, and now we’re ready to remove the support from the bottom of the tub and reinstall the top and the front panel.

Now with our blocking removed we’re ready to reinstall the lower access panel to line up those locator pins on the top, and start the two Phillips screws in at hand first, make sure we tighten these screws securely and hold the access panel in place while you are tightening them, make sure we have a nice clean fit, now we are ready to reconnect the power and our repair is complete. I told you it was an easy job, thanks for watching and good luck with your repair.

Washer Repair – Replacing the Drain Hose (Whirlpool Part # WPW10096921)

Hi, it’s Jack. Today we’re going to show you how to change the drain hose assembly on your washer. Now, it’s a really easy job. All we’re going to need is a large flat-blade screwdriver, a number two Phillips screwdriver and a pair of slip joint pliers.

Let me show you how we do it. Now to do this repair, we will need to pull the washer far enough forward that we can access the back of it. We’ll also need to disconnect the power, so remember to pull the plug.

Well next, we’re going to loosen two Phillips screws at the back corners of the console. We can remove them completely, or, if you choose, just leave them partially in, back them off enough that they will clear the main top. Then just give the console a little bump forward, on both sides and then roll that console completely over the back.

Now, our next step will be to disconnect the lid switch. Lift up on the locking tab on the harness and pull that away. Then with a large flat-blade screwdriver, we’re going to disengage these hooks that hold the back panel to the cabinet. With the flat-blade, we’ll go down into the hook on that bracket.

We’ll just put that into there and pop that loose. Do the same on the opposite side, unhook them from the back panel and set those aside. Now at this point, we can lift the whole cabinet away from the back.

We’ll just tilt it slightly forward, lifting up so that we clear the water inlet. If you wish, you can raise the lid and grasp the inside edge of the tab opening, lift it off the front of the washer and set it aside. Now, there’s still water in that hose, we’ll need a container here.

I’m just going to loosen this clamp, by compressing it and slide it back onto the hose. I also need to remove that clamp to use it on the replacement drain hose. Well next, we’ll need to release little arrowhead fasteners on that retainer.

We do the same at the back. Next, we’re going to depress these little arrowhead fasteners on that clamp and pull that through. Then at the top, we’ll do the same. Then, just pivot that away and pull it through.

Before we install the new hose, I’m just going to take the outlet into that, push that back through the mounting bracket. We’ll fit the inlet end of it in underneath this left front suspension leg. Slide the other end of the hose up to the rectangular opening in the back panel, then we’re going to engage these clips along that metal edge. Make sure it pulled up tight to that side, then snap in the retaining clips on the opposite side, until they engage. Line up the arrowheads on the new clamp on the bottom.

Fit that through the opening. Next, we’ll reinstall that clamp onto the new hose and we set it back far enough. We’ll reinstall that holder, inserting those little arrowhead fasteners into the opening on that leg. Position the clamp under the pump outlet, making sure that hose is fully inserted, till it meets the little stop. Then we can now put the cabinet back on.

Now, when reinstalling the cabinet, we want to make sure that the lip on the bottom front of that cabinet fits in underneath this cross rail on the frame. You will also note that there are a couple of raised tabs on the base, that will fit into rectangular openings on the bottom side lips of that cabinet as well. We need to make sure that we engage those and that will keep it aligned properly. It’s easier if you open the lid, then you can see down through the front, to make sure that we have it lined up side to side properly and the lip of the cabinet goes under the base frame and just make sure that that bottom lip goes right underneath the cross rail.

Just make sure that we push that cabinet all the way back, so that those tabs on the base frame engage the holes in the cabinet. Make sure the rear ones line up. We’ll take those clips, hook them into the openings on the back panel.

Line up the two openings in the main top. Take our flat-blade screwdriver and press those down into place. Remember to reconnect the lid switch and that the locking tab engages. We can then roll that console forward. We’re going to line up these hooks on the end caps, with the rectangular openings in the top.

Once they’re lined up, pull it straight back. We’ll take our Phillips screwdriver, then tighten up their retaining screws. We can now reconnect the drain hose to the outlets, or fill hoses if we had to remove those.

Reconnect the power. Our repair is complete.

Magic Chef Portable Washer Basic Info

Hello! Are you interested in getting a portable washer? This is a short video on the basics of the Magic Chef portable washe, Model number MCSTCW16W4. I ordered this portable washer from Walmart. It arrived in less than a week from the date ordered.

I used the site-to-store shipping because it would be easier to return it while already at the store if it arrived damaged. The washer arrived in very good condition, and the washer itself had no dents. I have included a picture of the wiring diagram for those who may be interested in it. I have also included the specifications of the 1.6 and 2.0 cubic feet washers that include the dimensions, weight, power supply, and input power. This washer has a nice selection of cycles including normal, heavy, delicate, quick, bulky, and spin only.

I use the normal program most of the time. Normal has one rinse and the longest final spin time. I also like that there is a spin only cycle too. The spin speed is about 800 revolutions per minute. I have included a close-up of the washer’s control panel.

Something that may not be obvious just by looking at it is the combination of options chosen for a wash cycle. Press the function button and you can set it to 1. soak, wash, rinse, and spin 2. wash, rinse, and spin 3. spin only 4. Wash only 5. wash and rinse 6. rinse and spin only. A convenient delay option is included, and there is also a time remaining countdown. This is a picture of the bottom of the washer. It looks like a miniature vertical modular washer design.

Surprisingly it seems well made given its inexpensive price. It looks easy to repair, and Magic Chef sells parts to repair this washer on its website. A plastic bottom cover is included. It helps prevent things from getting under and up in the washer.

This is a view of the back of the washer. The gray piece is a removable plastic panel that is held in place by a few screws. This is a view of the back of the washer with the grey plastic panel removed.

A close-up of the back of the washer shows that it would be easy to replace the drain pump if needed. This washer comes with everything needed. One fill hose and the quick connection adapter can be used to connect the washer to a kitchen or bathroom faucet. The temperature is controlled by the faucet. This washer can also be installed like a full-sized washer by connecting one fill hose to the hot and one fill hose to the cold faucet on a washer outlet box.

The temperature is then controlled by the selection on the washer’s control panel. This laundry detergent dispenser is nice. The owner’s manual states to use an HE powdered detergent. It looks like one could use liquid detergent too.

However, I recommend powdered. Liquid detergent is more likely to build up in hidden places. This is the same reason I do not use fabric softener. The inner tub is stainless steel.

This washer does not have an agitator. Instead it uses a pulsator that generates strong and weak water flows for an even wash. It works well especially for smaller items. I have another video that shows the wash action.

Unfortunately, you will need a two-gallon bucket. The government is using the “new math” and thinks limiting the water level for small, medium, and large loads saves water. Wrong.

Unless you add a bucket of water, it will take more loads to clean the same amount of clothes. When selecting small load, the water barely covers the bottom of the washer. When selecting medium loads, the water only comes up to about the second set of holes.

You can see the lint filter in this picture. It contains the loose lint, which is helpful especially if you line dry your clothes. Selecting large load only fills this tub half-full. This is the size I almost always select. I can always add more water to any load and it will not drain out.

However, the large, normal cycle has the longest spin time – this means less time is needed for line or machine drying. Adding a two-gallon bucket of water fills the tub about 3/4 full. This washer holds almost half of what I would consider a full load for the Maytag mvwp575gw. Magic Chef makes a dolly that in my opinion is a must-have. It is inexpensive and really useful whether the washer is used as a portable or in a more permanent installation.
