SHE6AP02UC/05 Bosch infuriating E:24 drain error

7 posts in this topic

Hey everyone -

 

I have a Bosch dishwasher showing the nice E:24 error (drain clogged).. been beating my head over this the past day or two.  It always throws it right after it does it's little self checks and tries to drain anything that might still be in the unit (in other words, after only a few minutes.)

 

* First, I took the drain out of the bottom of the sump and removed that white tab thing and made sure nothing was in the impeller, and that it could spin correctly.  Then (in front, after removing kickplate), I also took the hose out (after removing the clamp from on top of it) and looked at the other side of the impeller.  Looked good.

 

* Threw a couple quarts of water in before trying a new cycle; I hear it draining the water perfectly into the sink drain.

 

* Checked the sink drain it's connected to; it's working OK

 

* Held the > and DELAY, powered the unit on, pressed < once (P1 - test mode), and ran it a couple of times.  Always ends up with a 0 (no errors).  Unit fills, drains, everything - just fine.

 

I'm at a loss.  Thoughts?  This is driving me mad :)

Thanks, Samurai -

 

I went ahead and ordered the drain pump from Repair Clinic.  I Googled around the stash and it looks like you just twist it counter clockwise after removing the wiring to remove it.  In the meantime, if I do the 20 minute or so Customer Test Program and get a 0 error code, I can get it to initiate a regular load right afterwards, so I'll keep doing that until that no longer works.

 

Thanks! :)

Try removing fine mesh filter from sump. These being plugged will cause drain error. Bosch part 645038
