Question about Bosch 800 Plus Series SHX8ER55UC 24" Bar Handle Dishwasher With 40 dBA, 3rd Rack, ActiveTabtm

Open Question

Is there a reset on the Bosch dishwasher?

We had a clogged water pipe which has been fixed. However, the Bosch dishwasher continues to register E15 and keep trying to drain out water that has already been removed. How do we reset the machine? Holding down the reset button does not work.

SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher won't fill with water

Certainly *sounds* like the float is stuck in the over filled position
or possible a bad float switch, if the float is stuck in the up or full position, the d/w will not fill with water and the drain motor will often run all the time

SOURCE: drain pump running when unit starts but no water to appliance

The machine probably has water in the base (not visibly in the machine, but in the base where the conponents are). Pull the machine out, sit the front on a large towel and holding the back of the d/w pull it towards you. Any water trapped in the base will drain out. It may be a fair amount as the flood safety switch will activate on approx 1.5 ltrs. Once you've cleared the water run a prewash or quickwash to check d/w. Hope this helps.

E15 i want reset it ?


If this is a Bosch dishwasher, the E15 error indicates water in the base of the unit. You need to unplug the dishwasher and pull it out (if it is an under-counter unit) carefully. Empty the water from the base. Sometimes tipping the unit so that the base is tilted 45 degrees from the floor will help the water flow out. Make sure that the entire base is dry.

Replace the dishwasher under the cabinet (if needed) and plug it back in. If the error repeats at the next cycle, you need to determine where the dishwasher is leaking. It could be the outlet hose, the pump or the tub. Replace the bad part. If the dishwasher is under warranty, contact Bosch.

I hope this helps.

(if you recently had a flood either under the kitchen sink or an overflow at that sink, you just need to dry the dishwasher base.)

I have a bosch dish washer with a E15 error and warning light to check water flow


E15 fault is water into base and has activated the anti flooding device.
You will need to remove the water from base and investigate for leaks.

Most likely it is the flood switch trigger causing the problem.
Many reasons for this but mainly it means there could be water leaked into the base of dishwasher where flood switch is located.
Or if you have Aquastop fitted in the water inlet hose then the hose might have kinked due to age or being pressed between cabinet wall and dishwasher. Turn power off to dishwasher at mains plug and pull it out. Check hoses. Tilt it about 20 degrees to one side on a towel and hold for about 10 secs. This should get the water out. Wait an hour or so to dry any moisture in the base and then plug back in and turn on. This should reset the E15 fault.

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.

Error code e15


The E15 error message specifically indicates that there is a flood issue on the unit. This usually happens when the bottom part of the unit becomes flooded with water.

STEP 2
If this happens, there is a possibility of a leakage somewhere in the system. This occurs mostly on the drainage system of the unit where the water passes through different hoses pipes before finally releasing the water to the sewage. STEP 3
This problem can be solved by inspection. Remove the unit and take off the cover. Drain all the water and look for the source of the leakage.

The control panel on my dishwasher is showing a tap and E15


Mine's a bosch, same problem but started with E25 due to broken glass in the pump impeller, after struggling to remove it and then testing, it eventually moved to E15 as rightly so, no water was entering the machine due to the E25 code. The advice above is good, but take the device out first and tip the machine. This cured my faults without the need for a service call or spare parts.

I have a bosch dishwash e15 check water


I found this solution on elsewhere on fixya. it relates to a little float switch designed to detect water leaks I think. 1. turn off power and water 2. tilt back machine about 45% (have towels ready to soak up any spill off 3. when all the water has emptied, right machine and retry. if the problem keeps reoccurring, you may have a genuine water leak. I had to try a few times but this worked for me and saved me at least 4 days of hand washing over a long weekend. good luck

My bosch dishwasher does not fill with water (although it drains)


most bosch have the inlet valve at the end of the fill pipe and it has an anti-flood device.
try turning off the water, take off the fill pipe then reconnect it and see if this works.
taking off the fill pipe resets the anti-flood device
