Error E14 in a Bosch dishwasher means issues with water flow sensor.
Causes of failure
Bosh dishwashers are equipped with self-diagnostic system, which makes it easier for the user to detect the cause of the breakage. When the machine shows the error E 14, everything is simple – it means that the flow sensor has failed. It controls the amount of water in the tub and is installed instead of the pressure switch in the models with a flow through heater.
The cause may hide not only in the sensor itself, but also in its wiring. If connections are broken, the element does not receive signals from the control module.
Error code E14 can appear on the display in the following situations:
- There is no pressure in the system (or the pressure is excessive).
- The intake valve is out of order.
- The electronic board has burnt down.
How to repair it
In order to get rid of the pressure issues, tilt the machine 15-20 degrees to the left for a few minutes. If it did not help, eliminate the system crash by resetting the icons on the display:
- disconnect the machine from power supply for 10-15 minutes;
- reconnect it after a short pause.
Additionally check the inlet hose and its filter:
You need to understand the location of the inlet valve in order to correctly inspect it. In the Bosch dishwashers, the part is usually located at the bottom, but can also be on top or on the side.
- disconnect the wiring from the part;
- Unscrew the fastening screw.
- install the new valve
