Question about Siemens 24 in. SE25T250 Free-Standing Dishwasher

Siemens Dishwasher SE26230GB

Hi I was wondering if you could help me out please? My dishwasher is taking ages to wash and I'm pretty sure that it's the heater that has gone. I've tried opening the dishwasher to get to the heating element but have had no luck. The inside of the dishwasher is sealed. I've tried removing the side panels, looking under the dishwasher but just can't seem to get inside of the dishwasher!!! Any ideas how I can get to it please??

The element will be housed in a plastic manifold that is located at the centre rear of the d/w base. you may have a resetable thermostat on the top so give it a try first.

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.
