Bosch Dishwasher Error Code E15

The dishwasher has become a favourite kitchen appliance in most homes, as it makes life that little bit easier for you after meal times. Not to mention, that it also helps to avoid the old routine family argument of who should be doing the washing up each night.

However, If your Bosch dishwasher is displaying an E15 error code as you switch your machine on, it’s an indication that there is water sitting in the base of the dishwasher.

This would then cause the dishwasher to continuously pump out water and shut off the machine.

Read on to hopefully solve your issues, and get back to being able to rely on your dishwasher to do all the hard work, so you can relax after dinner - instead of having to wash the dishes by hand.

Cause 1

Water Leak

A common appliance mishap you tend to hear about is the dishwasher not filling.

When you constantly hear the dishwasher pumping out water but it is not then filling as it should, it is likely due to water gathering in a shallow tray in the dishwasher. Once this water reaches a certain level it will activate the anti-flood switch, and this will then instruct the dishwasher to pump out the water and shut off to prevent it from refilling again.

If you have been unfortunate enough to encounter this experience, you’ll know the pain of having to pull out the gloves to do the dishes by hand yourself. A dishwasher not filling can be very stressful, and there could be various reasons as to what is causing this to happen.

Safety First! Please ensure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before starting any repair.

Inspect for:

  • Build up of water in the base that may be causing an overflow - check this by tipping the machine slightly to one side, allowing excess water to flow away onto the floor.
  • Ensure there is no holes or damage to any of the internal parts causing the leak into the base.
  • A combination of error codes may be displayed or by a resounding tone, which will indicate the anti-flood switch being turned on due to leaks.

Once the impaired part has been identified and requires replacing, take a look at our extensive range of dishwasher spares to help restore your dishwasher to its former glory.

As we say, there could be various reasons for why your dishwasher has developed a water leak. Please see our easy to follow guide on how to diagnose dishwasher leaking problems, so you can hopefully find the fault and get back to a fully working dishwasher again!
