Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

FE is a fill error. This can be cause by a problem with the water supply, the inlet water valve, the Float sensor or the Flood sensor. Check the float sensor usually in the front left or center positon of the tub. It should lift and drop for a distanct of about 3/8 inch. If they get coated with food stuffs on the stem they stick. The flood sensor is usually mid point right or left side of the lower tub. Same thing here... if they get stuck in the UP position they waill not allow water to be introduced into the tub. Since you did not include a model number... I have to include all types of sensors. Some float and flood sensors are finger like and have a small slot in them to sense water level. The small slot clogs and they no longer sense properly or hold water when the tub is empty giving erronous inputs. Wipe off the finger slots.

IF the Float and flood sensors are ok the next step is to first POWER off dishwaher circuit. Then turn off the water supply and disconnect the water line at the inlet water valve to inspect for debris. Also you should briefly test the water supply line by placing a rag over the input line and turning on the water while catching the water in a short sided baking dish. (
If there is not a problem with water supply or debris then the final step is to measure continuity of the inlet water valve solenoid. No continuity = open coil and will require the inlet water valve to be replaced.

Since you did not include a model number this is a very generic response.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Light panel fully lit stopping program selection and start does a electronic part need replacing


I would suspect the user interface panel.

Most dishwashers can be tested thusly:

Turn off power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker box. Take apart the Dishwasher door and unhook the cable from the User Interface panel to the main control board. Then, turn the power back on and close the dishwasher door so it latches. The drain pump should go on. If it doesn't the main board is bad. If it does, it's the user interface panel.

Display panel not working


Hi sheltiepup20, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

I understand your dishwasher has power, but has no display. Let's try resetting your dishwasher by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is necessary to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn your dishwasher on. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, faulty door latch assembly or control board. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your dishwasher to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Best regards!

The setting push panel does not respond - can't turn it on

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the buttons don't work on the control panel the entire touchpad and control panel assembly may need to be replaced. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Touchpad

If the buttons don't work on the control panel, the dishwasher touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.





Main Control Board

The dishwasher has a main control board which regulates nearly every function in the dishwasher. If the control panel buttons don't work, and other causes have been ruled out, the main control board might need to be replaced.

Our 14 month old dishwasher will not turn on


if you are getting no lights on the display and assuming you have mains power getting into the dishwasher, the problem could be on the power control board located at the top part of the door module under the display panel.
Refer the control panel diagram item K253

You have to be careful when handling the dishwasher. Make sure it is disconnected from the main power and the water inlet is turned off. If in doubt call the service technician. You are still covered by parts warranty for 2-5 years (depending on part) See warranty policy in operators manual

My new bosch axxis washer was20160uc does not start


Open the dishwasher door if the desired cycle does not perform as selected on the control panel. Press the main power switch "Off" and then "On" again. Select a cycle, press the appropriate button, press "Start" and close the door. Make sure the door is closed completely.

Check the circuit breaker and water supply if the dishwasher does not start after selecting the appropriate cycle on the control panel and shutting the door.

Turn "Off" the dishwasher and disconnect the dishwasher from the power supply if an error code between "E01" and "E30" appears on the digital display. Reconnect and turn the dishwasher "On." This should reset the control panel.

Terminate a program on the control panel by holding the "A" button and pressing "Start" at the same time. The display will read "0:01". Close the door to start the program sequence. The display will read "0:00" when finished.
