Fixing error code 4 on a Bosch Exxel dishwasher


Internet Marketing bod
I'm asking this because the good folk on this forum appear to be able to fettle everything!

Our dishwasher isn't completing it's cycle, and yes I could wash up instead, but no, life is too short.

The cycle stops with 49 minutes remaining. I ran the diagnostics (pressing two of the buttons and holding the power button) and got error code 4. I think error code 4 denotes a problem with the water intake, but how does one fix that?

We can't afford a repairfella to come and look at it, so DIY is my only option.

Yup some of us can use google :P
according to this you should check the outflow filter which may be full of crap
"I also was getting the E-04 error code. I had a new baby and was doing a lot of laundry at the time. After speaking with a rep way to many times and them continually telling me I was using too much detergent, which I was using none, I called a repair man and he graciously instructed me on how to check the drain area (the area behind that round plate). Sure enough, there was what once was a breast pad stuck in the drain. Funny how that had nothing to do with detergent. That man saved me a whole bunch of money and I am very grateful to him! Now I'm getting the E-02 error and will be checking all the hoses to make sure they are cleared and not kinked. I'm about to throw this Bosch out the window! "
