Bosch Dishwashers - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues

The most likely reason for the pop is that your shorted out an Integrated Circuit (IC Chip) on the mainboard. A mainboard short is low amps and low voltage and won't trip the breaker like a heater element short would, or a mains lead touching the case My advice is to get a Bosch technician to fix it as they have access to test equipment software on their laptop plus experience on their own machines.

A new main board is $190 to $350, so I wouldn't advise just buying on one on my guess!

No! If you go to you can put in the model number for the pump and it will list all the compatible replacements.

It should be showing a code. Try disconnecting it from the mains overnight to reset.

Bosch dishwasher e17 error code. If you see the e17 error on your dishwasher display, do not despair. This error may indicate a high water pressure in the water supply network. ... It is easy to get rid of this error by slightly closing a water supply valve.

Most of these units have a waterproof solenoid inlet on the hose. If yours has this you can pull out the rubber washer in the end revealing a plastic mesh cover. This can also be pulled out with pliers. It can be a bit stiff to take care not to muller it!
Under the plastic mesh is also a restriction valve which helps to slow the water pressure down. This has a little plastic shaft with a small rubber seal around it and can also be pulled out and cleaned.

I had the same problem after replacing the white panel on my Bosch SHE45M02UC with a stainless panel. I got the C6 error code. I called Bosch customer service twice and neither rep was helpful. One guy told me he didn't know what the C6 code meant. He suggested that I call a local appliance repair guy and he would know what the code meant. I replied, you mean to tell me you work for the manufacturer of the dishwasher and don't know what the error code stands for but a local repair guy that doesn't work for Bosch does?

After all this frustration, I took the panels off and tested the dishwasher with no buttons. It worked fine! Turns out, each identical button isn't identical. Each one is labeled A-G. After putting it back together, no more C6 code! On a side note, try reseting the dishwasher. With the dishwasher on and door closed, hold down the cancel/reset buttons for 5 seconds and release. The disher should drain and reset.

Hello. The control panel most likely wasn't the problem...the main control board probably was blown out causing the user interface to remain off. What was the unit doing or not doing that made you replace the control panel?
BIG TIP--if you had a power interruption (such as lights dimming in the house--called a "brownout") or a full scale outage where the clocks reset, the main board very well could have been damaged by the current surge when the power came back on. *NORMALLY**, if the appliance wasn't damaged immediately, 4-6 weeks after the event, strange things will start happening or not happening with appliances because chips on the the board were damaged and start to fail. I tell all my customers to check into WHOLE HOUSE SURGE PROTECTORS--you can buy them at Lowe's or Home Depot and, your power company might install them on your house for a little extra on the bill each month--money well spent!
