Siemens dishwasher e15 error

Siemens dishwasher e15 error

This error occurs when the overflow sensor in the base of the dishwasher detects high level of water there. Once the float reaches a critical point, it triggers the pump to get rid of the water. However, it only pumps water out of where the washing process takes place, not from the base. Therefore, you will have to remove water manually, and the error code will be there until you find the exact place where a leak has occurred and do it up.

Also, this may occur due to air bubbles accumulating in the system and inhibiting water flow. Tilt the machine back and forth to remove air bubbles and free the float.

If it does not work, call a technician.
