Bosch Dishwasher Error Codes

Bosch Dishwasher Error code E14

If your Bosch dishwasher is displaying error code E14, it indicates a water inlet fault. This error typically means that the dishwasher’s flow meter, also known as a reed switch, is not detecting the entry of water into the appliance. While it can be disconcerting to see this error, the good news is that in many cases, it can be resolved with relative ease.

Understanding the Flow Meter (Reed Switch):

The flow meter is a crucial component in your Bosch dishwasher’s water intake system. Its primary function is to measure the amount of water entering the appliance during a wash cycle. This measurement is essential for the dishwasher to operate efficiently and ensure proper water flow for cleaning your dishes.

Common Causes of Error Code E14:

Faulty Flow Meter: The most frequent cause of error code E14 is a malfunctioning flow meter. Over time, these components can wear out or become faulty, leading to inaccurate water flow measurements.

Resolving Error Code E14:

To resolve error code E14, you’ll need to address the issue with the flow meter. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

1. Safety First:

Ensure your dishwasher is disconnected from the power source and the water supply. This step is crucial to prevent accidents and ensure your safety during the repair.

2. Access the Flow Meter:

The flow meter is typically located on the heat exchanger, which is often situated at the base of the dishwasher. Access the heat exchanger by removing the lower front panel of your dishwasher.

3. Replace the Flow Meter:

Once you’ve located the flow meter, you can remove it. It’s a good practice to take a photo or make a note of its position to help with reinstallation. Replace the faulty flow meter with a new one, ensuring it’s securely in place.

4. Reassemble and Test:

Reattach the lower front panel of the dishwasher and reconnect the power and water supply. Turn on the dishwasher and run a test cycle to ensure that the error code E14 no longer appears.
