Bayern assistant coach Willy Sagnol will take over on an interim basis from Ancelotti.
Former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel and Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann have been linked with the role.
Ancelotti took over at Bayern from Guardiola in 2016, and he won the Bundesliga in his debut season, but the Bavarian side were knocked out of the Champions League by eventual winners Real Madrid at the quarterfinal stage and by Borussia Dortmund in the DFB Pokal semifinals.
Bayern have lost one and drawn one of their opening six Bundesliga games and currently sit in third in the table.
