So, the first question you will be asking what does the Error Code 15 in Bosch Dishwasher means? Well, there can be many reasons, but the most common cause the excess water is left at the bottom of the dishwasher. Bosch comes with many safety devices, and the safety switch is one of them. The main function of the switch is to display a warning whenever water has entered into the tray. This will cause the E15 Error.

How To Fix and Reset Bosch Dishwasher Error Code E15
If you go to the Bosch official page, It will not give the solution for it in detail. It will just ask you to call their helpline number. Please note that This error implies the same cause on all types of Bosch dishwashers. Let’s see some of the common reasons that cause this issue.
- The leakage sensor is not working.
- Hose or filter has a blockage.
- Nozzles are worn out due to lots of usages or due to irregular pressure.
- The water sprinkler is faulty.
What does Error Code E15 mean in the Bosch Dishwasher?
The code E15 indicates that the system itself has found a water leak in the bottom of the dishwasher. You would then need to remove the front panel and the base plate and test the float at the bottom of the unit. You can tilt the dishwasher at an angle of 45 degrees to the left to reset the E15 Error. This will help in removing the anti-flood switch from the dishwasher tray. After tilting, you will need to remove the water from the tray. Dry the tray and place it back. In most of the cases, Error E15 will be gone. But this will solve the error only for some time. For a permanent fix, you need to do advanced troubleshooting and diagnosis.
If you again get the error, then you need to identify the source of the water leakage. For this, You need to inspect the dishwasher, and it may require removing some parts of the dishwasher. This is a very advanced step, and hence we advise you to take all precautions and, if necessary, take the help of an expert. So, let’s see some of the parts that you need to check:
First, you need to check the water tank of the dishwasher. Many times there may be some crack in the tank from which water may leak. But in my experience, it happens very rarely. It usually occurs when the dishwasher is very old or there has been a manufacturing defect in the water tank.
Water Leakage Sensor
Malfunctioning of the leakage sensor is also very rare, but we suggest you to check this as well. If there is water in the tray, but the leakage sensor is not detecting any water, then it means that it is not working correctly, and you need to replace it. You can find this sensor at the bottom of the dishwasher.
If the pressure of water is too much, it can damage the sprinkler, which is normally made from plastic. When this happens, the water can quickly enter the lower pan that can result in the E15 Error Code.
So, we advise you to replace the faulty sprinkler with the new one.
