I need a user's manual for SGS5302 bosch dishwasher. Otherwise would you tell me exactly how the aquastop works? Is there any method to bridge it? What goes on the wires? Signals from or to the dishwasher?

The Aqua-Stop function is a flood protection feature. You really don't want to be "bridging it"!

It works by using a float switch to detect when the water level gets too high in the wash compartment. It over-rides any wash programme and starts the pump to empty the water out.

Also if water leaks into the bottom of the dishwasher (under the washing compartment) the float will rise with the water level and when it reaches a critical point, it will over-ride any washing programme and run the pump.

However, the pump cannot remove water from under the washing compartment, but as it over-rides the wash programme, it prevents the washer from continuing with any wash cycle, thus preventing any more water from leaking into the bottom of the washer and flooding your house.

For this reason, you should never attempt to "bridge" (whatever that means) modify or disable the aqua-stop feature. If it's been activated, you have a problem which needs to be resolved before you continue to use the washer.

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.

Can't find SGS43t62 float switch assembly


The float switch in most Bosch dishwasher is part of the Aquastop circuit found in the inlet water hose connected under the kitchen sink. Refer installation instructions at this page. Type in the model number and download it.

Lower spray arm siemens aquastop dishwasher doesn't rotate


Sprayers require water to pass through the jets to provide motion to the arms.

Suggestion;

Remove the sprayer from the machine and look for blockages. (Removal should be easy, at it is expected that the user will need to clean the jets occasionally; If you have any problems removing it, consult your manual).

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.
