E24 Error Code Bosch Dishwasher
An error code on a dishwasher, called E24, can be caused by a lot of factors:
- The dishwasher door has been left open after the cycle has finished;
- A dishwasher is not draining properly;
- The user is not using proper dishwasher cleaning products, or are using the wrong products;
- There is a leak in the dishwasher.
- If the machine is still cooling down when the error takes place, the cause is likely to be that there was no power interrupted during switch-off or switch-on. If there was no power interruption during switch-off or switch-on, it could be because of a faulty power supply unit.
- If the machine has been running for more than two hours and the error is not happening with every cycle, it can also mean that there is a blockage in one or more of the hoses connected to the pump unit which needs to be cleaned or replaced. If the error continues to occur with every cycle, then the machine may need a new motor pump or a motor pump belt needs to be replaced.
- If you want to fix it yourself, remove all hoses from their fittings and check if any are clogged and need cleaning or replacement by running hot water through them first (it should clear any blockages).
How do I fix a clogged dishwasher hose? You can try using a garden hose to clear any blockages in your dishwasher's hose by turning the spray nozzle to its highest setting and connecting it to the drain connection.
I have a dishwasher that doesn't finish the cycle.
Why? The dishwasher not finishing its cycle might be due to a faulty control board or leaking water seal under the sink. If you would like a professional's opinion in regards to this issue, please contact our repair company for more information.
- The cause could also be that one of your hose connectors has broken off and needs replacement - run hot water through it before reconnecting it to the pump unit.
- Low water pressure. To check the water pressure, run cold water into a bucket and then turn on your tap. If the bucket fills slowly, you have very low water pressure; if it fills quickly, you have adequate and satisfactory water pressure.
- Air in the water. If water is not flowing from your faucet, check for air in the system by opening the faucet to a low flow and making sure there isn't any bubbles coming out of the tap. Air can be removed with a pump, which is available at any hardware store.
- Old or worn-out water filter. Your pressure may be too high for your old installation if you have an undersized pipe or you're using a plastic funnel type of filter instead of one that fits inside the pipe. To get around this problem, either use a new filter or change to a larger pipe.
- A blockage in the line. To check for a clog, turn off your water supply and run a bucket under the faucet. Water coming out of your tap should be clear and not hazy or cloudy. When you can't see any debris in the water, shut off the water to your house and remove it with a plunger or snake.
- Filters that are not working properly. If you have been installing filters regularly and they're still not working properly, replace them with new ones. If your filter light keeps flashing, replace the filter.
Diagnosis before replacing any of the connectors
- Check that power was interrupted during switch-off or switch-on by pressing STOP on the machine and then pressing START to restart it.
- Check that all hoses are removed from their fittings and no blockages are present.
- Look for a broken hose connector, disconnect it and replace it with a new one before reconnecting the pump unit to its hoses.
Disconnect the power supply and remove the following:
- Cover (or other)
- The upper part of the pump unit with its hoses
- The lower part of the pump unit (that is, below where it plugs into the electrical outlet)
- Hose connector to connectors on hoses.
These are usually located at both ends of a hose. Unless there is an obstruction, disconnecting them provides relief from some pressure.
Therefore, before reconnecting any fittings on these connectors, use a sharp knife or scissors to cut away a small strip of rubber between them.
