SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher pump keeps emptying

Disconnect the power to the unit. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher. You will probably find it is full of water. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water. There is a float that will stop the operation of the unit and run the pump if water is in this tray. Test the unit. If there are no leaks, check the drain hose under the sink. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO ABOVE THE TOP OF THE MACHINE THEN TO THE DRAIN. If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overflow into the tray under it.

If there is no water in the pan under the dishwasher there may be a problem with the pressure switch at the side of the pump housing but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.

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.

SOURCE: Hello, i have a Siemens

It's possible that the Aqua-Stop flood protection system has been activated. I can probably help you, but I really need more information.

1. When you start a wash program, can you hear the pump running? - This will be a low pitch humming sound.
2. There is a dome/mushroom shaped plastic protrusion in the bottom of the washing compartment, located behind and between the salt compartment cap and the drain. Can you lift this up (be gentle) or is it already up and can only be pushed down?

Please post this information and I will try to assist you further.

What is aquastop


I presume that when you say it wont stop running, it's the empty pump that is running. This is an anti flood protection. Water from a spill has got into the base of the machine and tripped the flood protection sensor. To cure the immediate problem, pull the machine out and tip it on it's side or back about 45 degrees and the water in the base will run out and the flood protection will reset. The real question is though, how did the water get INTO the base? Most common is that someone used household detergent instead of dishwasher powder or tabs and the foam it created worked its way into the base and then turned back to water as it settled. If this is the case, the tip sideways will be a permanent fix. If not, you will need to trace and cure the leak

Bosch diswasher e15 light


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.

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.

Water supply to my Bosch SHE43CO5UC/17 dishwasher seems interrupted and not being supplied to the unit. Water supply to the unit is checked and confirmed available. What are the possible causes, i.e. stuck...


Could be a dirty hose filter or faulty inlet valve. Ther could be a leak and the bottom of the unit has flooded activating the flood safety which will cut the water supply. The pressure chamber and/or the hose pressure chamber to sumo could be block (take of left side panel and these are at the bottom right). Finally, the aquastop (grey box connected to the mains water supply that feeds the d/w) could be activated, faulty or fitted in the wrong position
Hope this gives you some where to start..

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.

Meiko dv80.2 error 201


Error code 201 Indicates the incorrect water level...in that the level was not achieved during filling...check the following.

Correct water level was not reached during initial filling.

Check that the water hose is correctly attached and is free of “kinks” or pinching. Also check that the water supply is turned on.
I hope this helps...thanks for rating my effort....the Fang
