    Bosch Dischwasher Error Code E25 (draining)

    Bosch Dischwasher Error Code E25 (draining) 16th Apr 14 at 5:17 PM
    We've got an integrated Bosch Wishwasher (about 4 years old ish). It's intermittently aborting the cycle half way through and throwing up an error code E25 (with little picture of a tap). A quick Google seems to suggest this is a drainage problem, and yes at the point of error the dishwasher is full of water.

    However, on immediately switching off/on and kicking off a new cycle it will do it's initial drain absolutely perfectly! Which makes me question if it is indeed a drainage pump issue.

    It doesn't happen every time time, but tends to crop up in spates.
    I've pulled out the filter at the bottom, felt around to see if there's any debris, but can't find anything.
    Have run some dishwasher cleaners through.
    Checked drainage pipe for kinks etc.

    Any ideas anyone?
    Is my next step, pulling it out and stripping it down?
    Could it be some weird ECU issue?

    It may not be the Drain BUT slow filling up with water ?
    Possibly it's taking too long to fill so shuts down with this error message.
    Have a look at the speed the tank fills with water.
    Hope this Helps

    Check that nothing is jamming the pump impeller

    Bosch Dishwasher Error Code E25

    I have the same problem. Started as intermittent and now more frequent. The dishwasher wouldn't empty the the end of the wash and I have to run a separate rinse program for the dishwasher to empty.

    I'm sure that there is no blockage.

    Arfa-, Did you find a solution for your problem.

    I'm thinking of changing the pump? Any advice?

    Just had same problem. It turned out there was a bit of broken glass jamming the pump. You can follow the instructions to remove the white cover to the pump after turning off power! I then probed with tweezers to get out the bit that was jamming the pump. It should rotate easily by hand...
    I then explained to she who must be obeyed, that the filter above it must be locked by aligning the blue arrows so that large bits of rubbish cannot get into the impeller.....
