Hy, I have a washmasine bosch WAE28267SN that sow me an error E02 that's the error. Somebody can help me with some tips Thanks


The E02 error means that the washer is slow to fill. This can be caused by a problem with the incoming water hoses, the water valves or the washer draining as it fills.

The first thing to check is the incoming water if you have very little water in the washer. Make sure that the shut-off valves have been opened fully. If they were fully open, close them. If they were closed, check if that solves your E02 problem. Next remove the water hoses. A damaged anti-flood hose can reduce the water flow to a trickle. Clean the filters at both the shut-off valves and the intake valve on the washer. Replace the hoses at the shut-off valves. With a bucket below the hoses, turn on the shut-off valves and check that you are getting good flow. Now, attach the hoses to the washer. Check if the washer fills properly.

Check that the drain hose is positioned so that the outlet is above the water line of the washer. If your E02 issue continues and no water gets into the machine, then the inlet valve could be stuck in the closed position. If the washer is filling and the E02 error persists, then the water flow sensor may be a problem. This sensor has air tubes that can become clogged. Make sure that they have no dirt. There are other parts in this sensor that could be damaged.

Unfortunately, I don't have a source for parts for this washer. Some Bosch water inlet valves are available here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/bosch-washer-valve.html . If your washer is under warranty, contact Bosch.

I hope this helps.

It's either an intake valve just where the hose meets the machine or a bad pump.

E 02 Error Message


There is a problem with the water supply. This could be a symptom of kinked hoses, clogged filters in the intake valve or low water pressure.

Turn off the water shut-off valves and disconnect the hoses from the washer and then the shut-off valves. Place a bucket under the hoses to catch any water that drains out of the hoses. Check the filters both on the washer and at the shut-off side of the hoses. Sometimes, you need to use needle-nose pliers to pull out the filters from the intake on the washer. Make sure that the hoses are not kinked when you reinstall them. You may want to replace the hoses. There are some hoses that will seal themselves if they detect a leak. This will slow the water flow to the washer.

While you have the hoses off the washer's intake, test the water pressure by measuring the water flow into your bucket when you open the valves.

Also make sure that the washer discharge hose is not below the washer's water level for your load size. This leads to the water flowing in and then out of the washer before it fills the machine.

I hope this helps.

Not getting water into machine although mains water is reaching hose intake. model number of bosch is sgs44e28eu05 type si1501b


There's no water entering the machine If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these: Water-inlet valve Float switch Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it. thanks.

Bosch SHU3300 dishwasher stuck on hot water intake (w/ no power)


It sounds like the fill vlave is stuck open. This can happen if your pressure is low or if the machine is old. I would start by replacing the vlave.

No water coming into machine. Programme not running because the machine is still trying to fill. If I add water the machine does drain. Was cleaned with a good dishwasher cleaner only last week. Nothing to...


Turns out that the dishwasher had a leak in the bottom. No water could be seen leaking out because Bosch machines have a cut-off valve that means if a tray in the bottom of the machine fills up with water, the float valve doesn't allow anymore water into the machine. we worked this out after we tipped the machine slightly, water ran out, when we put it back down and started it the inlet valve worked until the bottom had filled with water again.

New machine for us! However, not a critism of Bosch. We use our machine at least two or three times a day and have done for the last 5 years.

You have to replace the water inlet valve, the valve where water enters your machine.
