The E17 error in a Bosch washing machine typically indicates a drainage issue. Here are some steps you can take to fix this error:
1. Check the drain hose: Ensure that the drain hose is not kinked, bent, or clogged. Straighten out any kinks or bends and remove any blockages if present.
2. Clean the filter: Locate the filter, which is usually located at the bottom front of the machine behind a panel. Open the panel and remove the filter. Clean it thoroughly by rinsing it under running water to remove any debris or lint. Once cleaned, reinstall the filter back into its place.
3. Clear the drain pump: The drain pump may be clogged with debris, causing the E17 error. To clear it, you’ll need to access the pump. Unplug the machine and remove the bottom front panel. Look for the drain pump, which is usually located towards the bottom right or left side. Place a towel or shallow container under the pump to catch any water that may spill. Unscrew the pump cover and carefully clean out any debris or objects that may be obstructing the pump. Once cleaned, screw the pump cover back on.
4. Check the drain hose for blockages: Disconnect the drain hose from the back of the machine and inspect it for any blockages. Use a long, flexible brush or pipe cleaner to remove any debris that may be causing the obstruction.
5. Restart the machine: After performing the above steps, plug the machine back in and restart it. The E17 error should be resolved, and your machine should be able to complete its wash cycle without any issues.
If the E17 error persists even after following these steps, it may indicate a more serious problem with the machine’s drainage system. In such cases, it is recommended to contact a professional technician or the Bosch customer service for further assistance.
Note: The specific steps to fix the E17 error may vary slightly depending on the model of your Bosch washing machine. Refer to the user manual or Bosch’s official website for model-specific instructions.
