Bosch Dishwashers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Check that the new panel isn't pushing down on any of the buttons when you reassemble it. Compare it with the old panel and look closely for any differences. Ive come across it a few times where changes to panels have been made and its supplied to fit yours but the changes prevent correct operation. You may have to file or cut any part off which interferes with the switches or controls. This happens when there are production line changes on the same models.

We read on google that a lady had this problem and we copied her instructions to see if it worked and am so pleased to say it did.
OUR PROBLEM WAS WE HAD E15 AND NO WATER IN THE BOTTOM OF OUR DISHWASHER, BUT THE PUMP STILL KEPT GOING ON AND OFF. EVEN WHEN THE ON/OFF BUTTON ON THE DISHWASHER WAS OFF.WE PULLED THE DISHWASHER OUT AND TILTED IT BACKWARDS (WHILST STILL ON), AND AFTER A MINUTE THE SETTING RETURNED TO NORMAL.So do try this before you call an engineer.

An "E" on any appliance means error. perhaps your drainage needs cleaned out....

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,
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description I'd say the issue actually is with the control...unfortunately. This is likely within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ).
If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself...it really isn't very complicated. Copy & paste this link (or click on it if it will respond) to your toolbar (explorer bar ?) and you'll see my complete solution for this issue.

I also wanted to add, depending on your model and serial number Bosch issued a recall on some of their units. Here's a link you can use to check up on your specific unit.

Good luck.

First, I'm not a BOSCH tech.
I just installed an ELECTROLUX dishwasher last month and had a similar problem. We also have an older Kenmore dish washer in another part of the house. The Kenmore is at least 15 years old and the touch pads are very soft and easy to select. The new one did not select either. I have to firmly depress the pad (which seems to be a stiffer plastic) and make sure I'm pressing down on the right spot to get things to work.
* I recently came across the same problem. Pressing buttons won't change the displayed setting and it seemed to be 'stuck' in one mode but I coudn't tell if it was in between a cycle or just stuck. I've found that holding the 'start' button down (firmly) for 10 seconds will cancel all functions and it went back to normal. Since then it gets stuck several times over the week. I don't know if one of the kids is opening it up as I only turn it on at night just before going to sleep. So, someone may be sneaking around for a mid nite kitchen raid.
* If you still have problems then check your warranty as many of these machines have parts warranty for 3-5 years. The 'switch' section if bad must be completely replaced as it is all one piece. These membrane switches will get damaged from a sharp fingernail or using a knife or fork to force the button down. (happened with the Kenmore, Kids kept stabbing it to get it to turn on.)

I saw my repair man do the following, which you might try...
Open the door and simultaneously press & hold down the power button with the 2 buttons used on your model to "Cancel & Drain." If the unit comes on it now is in self-diagnosis mode. Release the buttons and close the door. The unit should start to fill with water. Press the power button to exit the mode.

Take the front kick panel off and see if anything under the machine is wet.

Bosch Evolution... | Answered on May 31, 2019


I had same problem and was alarmed at the idea of taking the door apart, so I tried the 2 screwdriver option described below - it works!

Open door and get two small screwdirvers behind each side of the catch inside the top of the door and gently apply pressure. The catch should reset itself on 'open' and allow you to shut the door again.

Thanks to all for their postings and helpful advice!

"water not draining" and "Not getting water" seem to be mutually exclusive.
If it is not draining but the motor is running you need a pump replacement.
If it isn't getting water you may need a water valve.

h:01 means 1 hour delay. Press the delay button repeatedly to get to h:00 then hit start.
