Question about Bosch Dishwashers
My Bosch dishwasher (SMS63M08AU/12) is giving me a E11 error code. It begins a cycle and then approx 4mins in will start flashing the code. From what I can gather, I believe it may be associated with the NTC (thermistor??). Is this a big job??
NTC thermistor fault.
This error code can be caused by the thermistor or the wiring to it being faulty.

You need the control panel to reset before anything else can happen. To do this TURN OFF THE PLUG SOCKET FIRST AND UNPLUG. Then you need to drain ALL the water from the machine. Turn off the water supply feed and place the wastage pipe as low to the floor as poss ( 1-2" off floor). Water will gush out so use a large shallow tray and keep emptying the tray. Tilt the dishwasher over slightly to make sure all the water is out.
This will allow the control panel to reset itself which wouldn't normally happen if the base of the dishwasher was holding even a small amount of water.
Re connect the water, plug back in , select the RESET setting on the dial and close the door and switch on.
Leave for about 20 seconds and then turn off.
Rotate the selector switch to "A" Intensive wash and switch
I found this on another site and it really did work for me

Try looking for slithers of glass etc under the impeller. Remove the sump covers (filters) and look into the bottom. There will probably be a small cover held down by a screw. Under this is the impeller. Roll up a hand towel into a cigarette shape and slide this under the impeller - that should clear anything out.

Well done by resolving this problem. The other way to avoid the siphoning problem through the drain hose is adding an air gap valve/connector (available at any hardware store). You can use it even if you don't have a garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. That will assure that you have the proper height of the drain hose.
Hope this helps!

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description " makes squealing sound almost like beeping at the beginning of its cycle "...it is likely to be either the pump impeller or the inlet valve.
With the Bosch built line of dishwasher`s this is a known problem...the carbon ring ( spring ) of the impeller pump seal kit. ( make sure it is indeed a SHU9915UC before ordering parts )
**Most common in units not used regularly, i.e. in a holiday cottage or vacation property, but time to time on daily used as well unfortunately...but also due to the heat from normal wear & tear**
You first must determine which is the source of course. Does the noise begin after filling with water and the pump starts, or does it begin upon the filling of water ?
If it's the valve, make sure the water supply line is completely "open" and if so replace the valve with part #425458
If it is the motor wash impeller squeeling It can be remedied by one of two methods, replacing the entire motor & pump assy part # 442548...
This retails between $99.00us. to as much as $170.00us. depending where you look. I usually go through "searspartsdirect.com" for about $100us. ( you can also investigate "repairclinic.com" or "appliancepartspros.com" to name a few.
Or if you are mechanically inclined, replacing the pump impeller kit. part # 167085
The kit is typically around $50 -$75us, hence it can be cheaper when factoring labour for the complete motor/pump assy.
This is a pretty involved repair to explain, in fact I think it is harder to explain than actually do...but I`ve done many.
If you`d like to provide me with an email address I can attach a file in "pdf" showing you step by step how you can do this without much cost at all really...likely your time will be the greatest expense.
Let me know how you`d like to proceed and I`ll help in whatever manner I can.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and Good luck.

Testimonial: "we are still carefully listening to the sounds and its timing, we plan to change the impeller soon time permitting and will inform about the results"

The E27 error flashes on the washer LCD screen and stops the current load. Unplug your washer for 30 minutes and then plug it back in to reset the code.
Open and close the door two or three times to reset the sensor. Sometimes the door has been closed too hard and the sensor reading fails.
