Hello, usually turning off the breaker for at least 1 minute or more will reset the board. If you are getting a set of lights blinking, that is an indication of a problem--normally, dishwashers will blink certain lights in a pattern(digital error code) and depending on which lights and how many blinks, you have to decipher the type of code from the service manual.
Here is an excerpt from "Bosch Dishwasher Troublesoooting".
Running a Test Cycle
Bosch dishwashers have a test cycle which can be run as a troubleshooting
measure. The method to run this test cycle is similar across the Bosch
dishwasher range so if your dishwasher features seems different from those
described below then try experimenting, as the process is fairly straight
forward and will be very similar. Bosch dishwasher model numbers are usually
found around the top or lip of the door. One of the most common differences
between dishwasher models is simply the names of the buttons. For example in
the first example below, POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH may be called WASH
and ECO depending on your dishwasher model and the country you are in. The
other key difference is whether your dishwasher has a display panel (which can
display error codes) or not (in which case a program light will illuminate to
tell you the fault.
To run the test cycle hold down the POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH
buttons. Whilst held down press the ON/OFF button. The lights above them should
flash. Now you can check the status of each dishwasher program by pressing its
button. Now you can run the full test cycle = Press the POWER SCRUB PLUS and
REGULAR WASH buttons again. The dishwasher will start up and when the cycle has
ended one, if you have no display panel on your dishwasher model the indicator
lights will illuminate if a malfunction was detected as follows -
CLEAN - A temperature sensor fault. If this is the case then the test cycle
will be very short as the dishwasher will terminate the test once it's been
RINSE/DRY - A water sensor/filling fault. If this is the problem then the
test cycle will not complete as the dishwasher cannot detect the right level of
water, the dishwasher will just keep filling and draining again.
WASH - A heating fault. Check your heating element.
If you do have a display panel on your Bosch dishwasher then after the cycle
is complete an error code will be shown if a fault has been detected. The error
codes are as follows -
0 - No errors have been detected.
1 - A water sensor/filling fault.
2 - A heating fault.
4 - A water filling fault. This can also appear as F on the display during a
8 - A temperature sensor fault.
When troubleshooting your Bosch dishwasher, running
the above test cycle is a good start in diagnosing the problem and should give
you an idea of where the problem lies with your Bosch dishwasher and what fixes
and repair are in order. Our general troubleshooting page will give you some
ideas on other things to check on your dishwasher. Good luck!
HA hA ha ha who posted these suggestions? For a time change press "run" "clk" "the time in military time 2:55pm woul d be 14:55:00 and that's in hours:minutes:seconds" then press run again.
to set the day which is 1-7 and 1 equals Monday, Tuesday = 2, Wednesday =3 and etc... you'll have to press "run" "clk" "which day it is 1-7" "day" "run" to end it.
As far as programming the schedule for the bells I can't figure it out. I know it's something like "prg" "loc, which would be the location number 1-99 or however many location positions there are" then "time, 24hr military format again" then "day, 1-7(days of the week)" then "cde, which is the code format( have no idea what the code format is, but i just use 3 as the code" and then i assume it's "run" to end it but it doesn't work.
Could be one of several things. If you are using a USB cable this should not happen, but if you are using the computer's serial port you might have the programmer set up for the wrong com port. The com ports can be numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. with 1 or 4 being the most common. Look through the setup menu for the program and find the place where the com port gets selected.
According to people who have had this problem before (error code E5 means blockage in the drain circuit) have solved it by
1:Remove the metal front panel from the dishwasher. this may be hidden by you kitchen kickboard its held on with 5 posi screws. 2: find a round black plasitc lump, similair to a yoyo!. 3:remove the rubber pipe that goes into it and blow down the pipe(you will hear air blowing into the dishwasher) then blow into the plasitc lump(you should hear it rattle) 4:put it all back together.
The black plastic lump is the pressure sensor, water gets stuck in it so the dishwasher thinks theres water inside so tries to pump it out but the pressure sensor still says there is water in so you get the error. Blowing through clears the water.
It is also a good idea to use dishwasher cleaner kit now and then- this is available from the super market in the dishwasher detergent section and is used with an empty dishwasher. Will get rid of all the muck that collects in the hoses and the drain.
The control panel needs to be replaced (indicated by the "2H" error code displayed at the start of the cycle).
BTW - The number 1 displayed at the end of the cycle indicates the cycle has timed out (i.e., it doesn't mean 1 minute remaining). Hence the continued running of the unit. Until you replace the control panel, you'll have to manually cancel the cycle at this point.
reset the display to -. if there's a number there it's the length of time later it will start at. both the start and the program have to be selected together..........but you also have to reset it after the last program
