What is aquastop

I presume that when you say it wont stop running, it's the empty pump that is running. This is an anti flood protection. Water from a spill has got into the base of the machine and tripped the flood protection sensor. To cure the immediate problem, pull the machine out and tip it on it's side or back about 45 degrees and the water in the base will run out and the flood protection will reset. The real question is though, how did the water get INTO the base? Most common is that someone used household detergent instead of dishwasher powder or tabs and the foam it created worked its way into the base and then turned back to water as it settled. If this is the case, the tip sideways will be a permanent fix. If not, you will need to trace and cure the leak

What does E-14 in Bosch Washing Machine mean?

E14 stands for an error code concerning the flow meter. This is a sensor which mesures if enough water comes into the machine. There are several causes. Did you open the faucet enough or is there some dirt in the sieve between the aquastop and the faucet?

Bosch SilencePlus shows E:15, Aquastop, and Watertap!

Hi Greg,

E15 on the Bosch units indicated the base switch is activated. There is a safety switch which will activate the drain pump to avoid the base overflowing. Basically you either have a leak or possibly rodents living in the base of your dishwasher.

Easy way to check is first make sure no water is inside the washing area or sump (where the filter is). You will have a dribble there which the drain pump won't pump out but make sure it is mostly empty. The dishwasher always drains at the beginning of a cycle if you need to manually activate this, just turn you tap off so it doesn't try to fill. unplug your dishwasher then pull the machine out and place some old towels along the base and tip if forward. If water run out from the base then you got a leak.

If you are a bit handy then you can take either the front kick plate and cover off or a side panel to look in the base. The float switch is a polystyrene disc which raises and hits a micro switch when the base fills up.

Common place for these to leak is the sump, wash motor or water path / distribution unit. Look for chalky white residue around the seals. Depending on the age of your unit some parts are more serviceable than others. Bosch are pretty good with spare parts so you should be able to source most items you need.

If you are not handy or technical and are concerned about taking on this work, call in a technician. Remember disconnect power before attempting any work. please.

I hope this helps.

Drain was clogged and the dishwasher overflowed. It's a 10yr old Bosch dishwasher. Now water won't flow into the dishwasher but it runs through the cycle and dishes arent clean.

Probably the aquastop (if you have one). We have a similar problem after our owerflow. The dishwasher is starting and running through the programs but no water is coming.
