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.

SOURCE: My Bosch dishwasher has an

We read on google that a lady had this problem and we copied her instructions to see if it worked and am so pleased to say it did.
OUR PROBLEM WAS WE HAD E15 AND NO WATER IN THE BOTTOM OF OUR DISHWASHER, BUT THE PUMP STILL KEPT GOING ON AND OFF. EVEN WHEN THE ON/OFF BUTTON ON THE DISHWASHER WAS OFF.WE PULLED THE DISHWASHER OUT AND TILTED IT BACKWARDS (WHILST STILL ON), AND AFTER A MINUTE THE SETTING RETURNED TO NORMAL.So do try this before you call an engineer.

SOURCE: 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 Siemens dishwasher E15 warning light stays on, I've tried every thing in the book but no good


If it is not a blockage, there is possibly an air lock in the water sensor. Tilt the machine forwards for a few seconds.

The overflow switch has been activated.
It means that its a internal leakage.

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.)

but if you have a different model it can be something else

Showing fault E15


I'm going to assume this is an SMS GV640 bosch, E15 indicates there is water in the base under the tank and therefore a leak. Pull the front of the machine onto a towel and pivot the whole machine forward (ie lift the back off the floor at about 45 degrees). If you see water flow from under the machine, you have a leak. You may find the the machine will now seem to work, but you will have to trace the leak or it will activate the flood device and give you E15 again.

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.
