Bosch Dishwasher Error Codes

Bosch Dishwasher Error code E16

The E16 error code signifies that your Bosch dishwasher is filling with water when it shouldn’t. This can lead to issues like water leakage and an inefficient washing cycle. Fortunately, resolving this issue often involves straightforward steps.

Step-by-Step Troubleshooting and Solutions:

  1. Check for Simple Obstructions:

    • Before diving into more complex solutions, start with the basics. Ensure there are no kinks or blockages in the water inlet hose. A kink or blockage can disrupt the water flow, triggering the E16 error.
  2. Inspect the Water Inlet Valve:

    • The water inlet valve is a critical component that controls the flow of water into the dishwasher. If it’s faulty or damaged, it can cause the dishwasher to overfill.
    • To inspect the water inlet valve:
      • Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from the power source.
      • Locate the water inlet valve (usually located at the back of the dishwasher).
      • Check for any visible signs of damage or wear.
      • If the valve appears damaged, it’s advisable to replace it. Consult your Bosch dishwasher’s user manual or seek professional assistance to do this.
  3. Reset the Dishwasher:

    • Sometimes, a simple reset can clear minor issues. To reset your Bosch dishwasher:
      • Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from the power source.
      • Wait for a few minutes, then plug it back in and turn it on.
      • Run a short cycle to see if the error code reappears.
