Bosch SMS Series Dishwasher Fault Codes E15
Water in base
Float sensor in the base has been activated. You can try to empty the base and restart the dishwasher as you will find noted many times in the forums but, if there is a leak this error code will simply be displayed again, you must find the cause of the leak.

but if you have a different model it can be something else

First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.

Try unplugging your dishwasher for 15 seconds or more, and then plug it back in. If that doesn't fix the problem, or if the problem comes back within a day, then you probably have a bad control board, or else the Auto key is stuck closed (like it is pressed).

Check your drain hose, especially where it goes into your garbage disposal. Also, if you got a new garbage disposal, make sure the plug has been knocked out in the dishwasher drain port.

There is often a filter inserted in the water feed pipe where it attaches to the machines valve and is part of the sealing washer, check that is also clear.

This is a computer error and really needs to be tested by an authorized repair company. There is one thing you might try and that is to unplug or cut the power to the unit for several minutes and see if it will reset.

It means that water is not getting to the dishwasher. Make sure your water valve is turned on all the way. If that's okay, then maybe your water supply hose got kinked when you pushed the dishwasher back in it's place. As a final check, turn off the water, disconnect the water supply hose at the dishwasher, and with the end of the hose sticking in a tall bucket, turn the water valve back on. You should have a good strong flow. If not, then your water valve (under the sink) is bad, and you will probably need to call a plumber, because the problem is not in your dishwasher.

Hello there and welcome to fixya The child lock function of your Bosch dishwasher prevents accidental program changes and stops children playing with the controls while the appliance is running. You might want to turn the lock off if it has been accidentally turned on. The controls of the dishwasher are disabled, preventing you from starting a new wash, while the child lock is running. The lock is simple to turn on and off, as necessary, in just a few seconds

This is a common fault and apart from trying silicone sealant , it is beyond repair

Check that the new panel isn't pushing down on any of the buttons when you reassemble it. Compare it with the old panel and look closely for any differences. Ive come across it a few times where changes to panels have been made and its supplied to fit yours but the changes prevent correct operation. You may have to file or cut any part off which interferes with the switches or controls. This happens when there are production line changes on the same models.
