E-23 message indicates that that the drain hose or draining of water is not carried out effectively. Remove filter cover at bottom of dishwater. Using a sponge/cloth remove any excess water that may be standing in the drain hole area - be careful that there may be glass/bones/other sharp pieces that may hinder the draining process. Use a torch to see any visisble obstacle-remove obstacle/particle. Run the impeller with your hand to check freedom of movement. The impeller should run smoothly. Remove drain pipe from terminal point and look in to check any visible blockage. Check that there are no kinks. You may have to suction/siphon out water manually (Can be done via mouth but be careful not to **** in any water or debris)- have a bucket nearby to allow water to flow into bucket. Replace hose into drain pipe. Replace filter cover. Mix two/three teaspoons of bicarb and one cup of white vinegar in a plastic container-there will be some fizz- and place in dishwasher. Close door and run the shortest cycle. Remember to apply slight pressure to door when turning machine on for its cycle. Remove pressure when machine begins to work-this is noticeable after a minute. Look at the timer as this is a good indication.

Watertap message on Bosch dishwasher

Check the water supply first. Make sure water is actually flowing through the tap. Also check the inlet hose has not been squashed on installation as this is a common fault. All hoses should be routed along the bottom of the machine in the back where clearance is provided.

Error message e21. Bosch dishwasher

My mom had the same issue with her fancy bosch dishwasher! It ended up being a hose, if I remember correctly. Her problem also took two repair trips, I know for sure it was not a new motor issue. I would have someone check the hoses and the electrical panel.

Just installed the dishwasher. When trying to start it, we get an E-23 message


If we are talking about a Bosch, Siemens, or other Bosch built dishwasher, E23 means inlet error. Check water inlet hose and pressure from the line. Test inlet valve. If water is getting into the appliance, test the water level switch.

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.
