I had the same problem after replacing the white panel on my Bosch SHE45M02UC with a stainless panel. I got the C6 error code. I called Bosch customer service twice and neither rep was helpful. One guy told me he didn't know what the C6 code meant. He suggested that I call a local appliance repair guy and he would know what the code meant. I replied, you mean to tell me you work for the manufacturer of the dishwasher and don't know what the error code stands for but a local repair guy that doesn't work for Bosch does?

After all this frustration, I took the panels off and tested the dishwasher with no buttons. It worked fine! Turns out, each identical button isn't identical. Each one is labeled A-G. After putting it back together, no more C6 code! On a side note, try reseting the dishwasher. With the dishwasher on and door closed, hold down the cancel/reset buttons for 5 seconds and release. The disher should drain and reset.

    Yes same problem...replaced the front facia on our bosch diswasher and if you dont replace the cycle button on the new panel in the same alphebetical order you will get the error code! Bosch customer service had no idea what I was talking about!! I phoned them back and didnt even want my feedback incase another customer needed to know this info!!

    Thank you so much for this post!!! I bet the service men can tell you that this c6 code means you need a new control panel and charge you even more.

Thank you so much for posting these. My husband and I were able to fix our dishwasher after also getting the C6 code. Just a note - Looking at the back of the panel I originally put them left to right in B,C,D,E,F,G order but still got the C6 code. I then reversed them with B starting on the right and that fixed it.

Took mine apart and got the same C6 code when I replaced the control unit. Took it apart again, replaced buttons correctly, and now the unit works fine. The buttons, in particular the buttons on the left, will be way too "jiggly" and don't spring back properly if you have made this error. Each button is worth a penny, but that's one more penny Bosch wants to save, so they make you harvest the old buttons from your cheap plastic garbage fascia.

I can't believe I paid 80 bucks for another chance to have this flimsy disaster of a part break on me. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Could I just say THANK YOU to the folks who posted this fix. Bosch was unhelpful and lied to my face that this was a problem.

We had same problem, replaced the front plate on our Bosch and C6 appeared. We had not noticed that the buttons and placement of them were alphabetical. After putting them in the right order - it worked fine. Thanks for this post!

    Thank you - solved my problem as well. I was thinking it was more complicated as other sites said the heater unit was bad. Reordering the buttons (who knew they were in a specific order?) solved the problem. I appreciate it!

My Neff integrated dish washer is displaying error code 9


Bosch and Neff machines generate the same error codes..

E9 is an overfill problem. It's putting to much water in and overfilling.
If you wanted to check yourself you will need to take off the inspection cover on the front and locate the pressure switch if it's at the front. If it's not then you will need to pull machine out and take off the side panels. When you have found the pressure switch it will have a thin hose going to it and it will be round and have a few wires on it. Take this hose off and blow hard through it to clear any muck out.
Refit the hose and retry machine. Hope this helps..

Bosch Error Code 13 Washer won't drain


First, unplug your washer. After that find the little round plate below your drum opening on the exterior of the washer. It should have a small hole in it. Use something to gently push trough this hole and twist the cover off, Inside there you will find the drain access. Be careful, if there is water in your drum this will make a mess when you unscrew the drain access. Take the usual precautions and unscrew the drain access slowly until it is off. Remove any obstructions and replace access door and cover. Clean up any mess and plug back in your washer and try again. takes about thirty minutes to an hour depending on how much water is in the drum.

Helloduranjp,
Welcome to fixya.

You said, Your Bosch dish washer won't work. A number 1 is displayed on the electronic panel.

If it is displaying"01" then that means the extra dry setting is being applied!
Did you try to use the extra Dry setting?
Did the dishwasher work before this or is it brand new?
What is the model number and year?
Let me know ! I'm waiting for your response

Below is and example of the usage of 01 or 00 in a Bosch Dishwasher!

Extra Dry Heat
With this option you can raise the temperature of the rinse water and increase the drying
time which will result in improved drying.
To activate :
Press and hold the left cancel drain button ,
Then press and hold the on/off button when the LED display shows a, "00" or a "01"
To enable the additional drying heat,press the left cancel drain button until the LED display shows a "01"

press the on/off button to save the settings.

Smelled like burnt board


Just so you know. Bosch has a 5 year warranty on any printed circuit board (excluding labor) so you pay only for labor charges. They have a 2 year warranty (again excluding labor) on the entire dishwasher. I am leaving a copy of my owners manuals warranty information I hope this helps.

Extended Limited Warranty: Bosch also provides these additional
limited warranties:
• 2 Year Limited Warranty: Bosch will repair or replace
any component that proves to be defective in materials or
workmanship (excludes labor charges).
• 5 Year Limited Warranty on Electronics: Bosch will repair or
replace any Bosch microprocessor or printed circuit board if it
proves to be defective in materials or workmanship (excludes
labor charges).
• 5 Year Limited Warranty on Dish Racks: Bosch will replace the
upper or lower dish rack (excluding rack components), if the rack
proves defective in materials or workmanship (excludes labor
charges).
• Lifetime Warranty against Stainless Steel Rust Through:
Bosch will replace your dishwasher with the same model or
a current model that is substantially equivalent or better in
functionality, if the inner liner should rust through (excludes
labor charges). Bosch will replace the stainless steel door if the
door should rust through (excludes labor charges).
The foregoing timeline begins to run upon the date of purchase, and
shall not be stalled, tolled, extended, or suspended, for any reason
whatsoever.
Repair/Replace as Your Exclusive Remedy: During this warranty
