Bosch dishwasher pump keeps running

I recently had to pull my Bosh out from under the counter to level it. Since I have placed it back under the counter (now level), the drain pump runs continously when the machine is on and the machine will not start a cycle. I found what I believe to be a float trigger for the basin underneath. When I activate that float, the pump sound changes, but continues to run. If I pour water into the machine, it discharges it without a problem, but the pump doesn't shut off. I pulled the door and slightly cocked it to one side on accident when moving it. When I closed the door, a small piece of plastic fell from one hinge point(right side.) The piece was not recognizeable. Is there some kind of switch I may have damaged?

SOURCE: drain pump won't turn off


The reason the drain pump continously runs is because it is trying to remove any water too avoid any further flood as there is a flood in the base of the unit which activates the float switch and constantly activates the drain pump until the water has gone. Isolate the unit at the power switch and remove the bottom panel under the door panel. Dry up the water as best possible with a towel. Run the unit again and check for any water leaks. You may just have over sudded the unit with too much detergent. Only use 2 teaspoons of powder. To start with while testing don't use any detergent. Good luck

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.)

How to fix a bosh dishwasher with E 01 code

The E01 error may mean that the water flow into the washer is restricted or that the flow meter is not reading correctly. Sometimes the control board near the washer inlet is faulty and can't read the signal from the flow meter or send that message to the control panel.

First check your shut-off for the dishwasher and make sure that it is open. Next turn the valve off and disconnect the inlet hose. Connect a new hose to the valve and position a bucket under the hose. Open the valve and check the water flow. If you have good water flow, try connecting this new hose to the inlet of the dishwasher. (Unplug the dishwasher. For an under-cabinet dishwasher, you'll need to pull the washer out. Make sure to keep the discharge hose from pulling loose. Then disconnect the old hose from the fitting and connect the new hose instead. Then slide the washer carefully back into place without pinching the hoses or cables.)

If you add a comment with the model number, I may be able to give more specific directions and replacement part information. Of course, if the dishwasher is under warranty, contact Bosch.

I hope this helps.

Bosh diswasher SHE45M02UC/48 doesnt stop when I open the door

That is the drain pump that is running, and it indicates that there is water in the base of the unit. You will need to unplug the dishwasher and pull it out. You can tip it forward to drain the water out of the bottom through the holes in front. Have some towels ready to catch the water. Now if you plug the dishwasher back in, the pump should not run But now comes the hard part - figuring out where the leak is coming from and fixing it. It could be from a hose, the drain pump, or the main pump. Bosch dishwashers are notoriously hard to work on, so I recommend calling in a professional DW repairman.

My Bosch dishwasher sounds like it is running but does not clean the dishes.

check bottom of dishwasher screens for any blockages or obstruction preventing water from getting into pump. may need a wet vac to **** water out of pump and use a small mirror to inspect pump openings. if no obstruction, the pump impellor maybe broken. replacing the impellor is fairly difficult. the dishwasher has to be pulled from under the counter. repost if you further questions.

How do you adjust the height on a bosch dishwasher?

The easiest way, is with an adjustable wrench. First, make it level in both directions, and then, back out the feet until it comes to the counter top. Screw to dishwasher into the under side of the counter after you have your hoses and electric routed.

Water is not draining

Your drain pump might be bad/disconnected. Check the underside of your machine for disconnected wires.
