Siemens Dishwasher Fault Codes Explained

If your Siemens dishwasher displays an error code on the digital display, it indicates a problem. When this happens you’ll want to find out what it means and what action may be necessary.

A range of Siemens dishwasher fault codes are explained below:

Siemens dishwasher fault codes

E01, E02, E03, E04, or E05

All of these codes relate to faulty electronics which typically means a technical error has occurred during the programme resulting in the programme being interrupted. A restart of your appliance may be necessary by switching it off, waiting a few minutes and then switching it back on. If this fails to resolve the issue you may need professional advice.

Error code E06

Your dishwasher has detected a faulty door sensor or faulty electronics.

Error code E07

This indicates a fault in the drying system of your dishwasher.

Error code E08

When the water level in the rinse bath is too low this error code will display. It may be that dishes are covering the water intake opening restricting the water flow, but if this error occurs repeatedly it will need further investigation.

Error code E09 or 11

Siemens dishwasher error code E09 or E11 means there is a fault in the heating system which will need expertly repairing.

Error code E14

Siemens dishwasher fault code E14 shows that your dishwasher has activated the water protection system due to a fault in filling or a faulty water supply.

Error code E15

This is the signal that water is remaining on the floor of your dishwasher tub which necessitates you to turn off the tap and call for an engineer.

Error code E16

A fault has been detected in the filling system or with the water inflow often caused by a kinked or blocked corner valve flow-through.

Siemens dishwasher troubleshooting

Dishwasher won’t start

Reasons for this issue include the dishwasher door not being closed properly, a problem with the tap, or electrical difficulties with the power supply, socket, switch, or mains fuse. If the filter on the water supply hose is blocked this will also affect your dishwasher’s ability to start. If your dishwasher is continually tripping the electrics this could be due to a broken heater.

Dishwasher won’t drain

When water remains inside your dishwasher after the programme has ended this could be due to a kink or blockage in the drainage hose, a blocked filter, or a jammed or damaged pump. If the programme is still running wait for it to end and an 0 indication to show in the numerical display.

Dishwasher won’t heat

The heating element could be the culprit here as this part controls the temperature of the water being injected into your appliance. If your dishwasher isn’t heating effectively the element may be broken, or there could be an electrical fault.

Dishwasher won’t fill

There could be an obstruction between the water pump and the dishwasher tub which may need the spray arms to be removed in order to resolve the issue. If the anti-flood switch has been activated this will also prevent your dishwasher from filling with water and if faulty this component may need repairing or replacing.

Dishwasher noisy

A noisy dishwasher can often be related to a faulty or blocked drain pump. However, if the noise is grinding this could indicate an obstruction in a dishwasher blade or a squeaking noise can be a wash pump bearing that’s rusted or wearing.
