How to Fix E14 Error Code on Bosch Dishwasher ?
If your Bosch dishwasher gives you an E14 error code, it usually means that there is a problem with the water source. This error code can be annoying, but there are several steps you can take to fix the problem. Here is a step-by-step guide to fixing your Bosch dishwasher’s E14 problem code:
1. Check the Water Supply
First, you should make sure that your machine has enough water coming into it. Check to see if the dishwasher’s water supply valve is fully open and not jammed. The E14 error code can sometimes be caused by a partly closed or blocked valve. Fix any problems with the water source and see if the error code goes away.
2. Inspect the Inlet Hose
Next, check the hose that runs from the water source to the dishwasher. Check the hose for any kinks, bends or holes that could stop water from flowing through. Straighten out any kinks in the hose and make sure it’s connected to both the dishwasher and the water supply correctly. The E14 error can be caused by a broken or poorly connected inlet hose.
3. Check the Water Inlet Valve
During the wash operation, the water inlet valve opens to let water into the dishwasher. If the valve is broken or jammed, the E14 error could happen. To check the valve, you need to first turn off the dishwasher and unplug it. Find the water inlet valve at the bottom of the dishwasher and look for any signs of damage or clogs. If the valve needs to be cleaned or if it’s broken, repair it.
4. Examine the Water Filter
Water flow problems and the E14 error code can also be caused by a clogged water filter. Usually, the water filter is near the bottom of the dishwasher’s tub. Take out the filter and clean it well by running water over it. Once the filter is clean, put it back in place and turn the dishwasher back on to see if the error code is still there.
5. Check the Float Switch
The float switch is a small device at the bottom of the tub of the dishwasher. Its job is to measure how much water is in the tub. If the float switch gets stuck or breaks, it can stop the water flow and cause the E14 error. Lift the float switch gently, and then put it back down. Make sure it can move easily and that nothing is in the way.
6. Reset the Dishwasher
After doing the above steps, reset your Bosch dishwasher to see if the E14 error code is still there. Find the power button or the main power switch and turn it off to restart the dishwasher. After a few minutes, turn on the power again. If the problem is fixed, the dishwasher should restart and the error code should go away.
If none of the steps above fix the E14 error, there may be a bigger problem with the computer control board or sensor of the dishwasher. In this case, it’s best to call Bosch customer support or a trained appliance technician for further diagnosis and repair.
Safety comes first! To avoid getting an electric shock, you should always unplug the dishwasher before doing any fixing or repairs.
