How to Reset a Bosch Dishwasher

The Bosch dishwasher is one of the best dishwashers, thanks to its deep cleaning and automatic water draining system. But often the dishwasher will start having issues, and sometimes the best solution is to turn it off and on again. But how do you do that? For this tutorial, we’re going to teach you how to reset a Bosch dishwasher.

How to reset a Bosch Dishwasher | 2 Simple methods

If anybody asks how to reset a Bosch dishwasher, they might find that there’s two different answers. That’s because there’s two ways you can reset the Bosch dishwasher, with a soft or a hard reset. Depending on which method you end up going for, the reset might be more effective for whatever you’re trying to fix.

Method 1: How to soft reset your Bosch dishwasher

Soft resetting is the easiest, yet least obvious method. First open the dishwasher door to access all the buttons. Press and hold the Start button for at least 3 seconds. After that, close the door and let the dishwasher drain all the excess water away, which is a neat plus. So, if you’re having trouble getting rid of any excess water every time you wash the dishes.

Method 2: How to hard reset your Bosch dishwasher

However, if the problem is too severe, but soft resetting is not enough, then you can hard reset instead. It is straightforward, but the process has some steps you’ll need to follow. So, for this section, we’re going to learn how to hard reset a Bosch dishwasher, in a step-by-step process.

Step 1: Unplug the dishwasher

Unplug the dishwasher

First, the easy part; turn off the power outlet and unplug the dishwasher. Make sure that your hands are dry and there is no water next to the power outlet or the plug. On that note, keep a towel nearby, just in case. In some rare cases, you may need to flip the circuit breaker on and off again, if the plug is out of reach.

Step 2: Wait for at least 3 minutes

Now, just wait for at least 3 minutes, and just like that, you’ve already hard reset your Samsung dishwasher. But keep that in mind that the effectiveness of the reset depends on how long the dishwasher was unplugged for. 3 minutes is the maximum, but you are free to disconnect the dishwasher after a minute instead.

Step 3: Turn the power back on

Turn the power back on

After waiting, with your dry hands, plug the dishwasher back in and turn the power back on. Also make sure the plug and the environment around the power outlet is dry. If the plug is wet, wire it off with a dry cloth and wait a while for extra measure. Once you’re certain that it’s safe and your hands are dry, you can turn on the power outlet.

Error code E24 often occurs when there is an excessive buildup of water underneath the dishwasher or an error with the control board. There are a few things you can do. You can hard reset the dishwasher by unplugging it for five minutes. If that doesn’t work, then try soft-resetting the Bosch dishwasher with the step-by-step guide shown above.
