When a Bosch dishwasher experiences the error code E15, a couple of things are likely to have caused this problem. First, there’s likely a flooded ground. If this is the case, tilting the machine and drying it will get rid of the problem and it will continue to function properly. Second, the problem could be caused by a defective float. To reset this part of the dishwasher, remove the plastic microswitch cover and check if the float is stuck.
If the water sensor in your Bosch dishwasher is stuck, shaking it can dislodge it and fix the problem. You can also try dislodging the water filter. You can find it on the bottom of the dishwasher. To dislodge the filter, simply twist it out. This part of the filter is made of two pieces. To remove it, follow the instructions on the machine’s manual.
Another common cause of the Bosch dishwasher error code E15 is too much water in the dishwasher. In addition to over-flowing water, it could also be the result of a malfunction on the control board. If it is, you can reset the control board by hard reset. Make sure you remove the excess water in the base. The dishwasher should then work properly again. When the problem persists, call a qualified technician to repair the dishwasher.
If you can’t find the problem by yourself, you can contact the manufacturer to have it repaired. If you’ve tried all of the above and still can’t fix the problem, you can try resetting the control panel of your dishwasher. To do this, you need to press the Start button on your Bosch dishwasher and hold it for 3 seconds. After this, the control panel should come back on and you can safely remove the old control panel.
Another common cause of dishwasher error code E15 is a malfunction in the safety mechanism. The dishwasher’s safety mechanism consists of a safety switch and a polystyrene disc in the trough. If the water level in the trough is higher than the recommended range, this triggers the safety switch, preventing the machine from turning on. If it does, you’ll have to replace the heating element as it will no longer function.
In some cases, a dishwasher may simply be leaking water. This can be a very small leak that you can detect with your fingertips. To repair a Bosch dishwasher, you need to remove access panels and check the water tank and hoses. You can see water on your fingers, and then replace the faulty component. You’ll be surprised how much water gets inside a Bosch dishwasher. You might not even realize that it’s leaking until it reaches the trough and the dishwasher shuts down.
The other problem with a Bosch dishwasher’s water drainage system is excessive foam in the aqua-stop system. This problem can be exacerbated by a clogged water drainage system. Another way to clear a dishwasher’s water drain is to use old towels to soak up the water from the bottom of the dishwasher. A small amount of water will cause the dishwasher to malfunction, so soaking up the water in old towels will prevent it from spreading all over the floor.
