To reset a Bosch washing machine and remove error E17, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the washing machine by pressing the power button or unplugging it from the power source.
2. Open the door of the machine and remove any clothes or items inside.
3. Locate the small circular access panel at the bottom right corner of the machine. This panel covers the drain pump filter.
4. Use a flathead screwdriver or a coin to turn the panel counterclockwise and remove it.
5. Place a towel or a shallow container beneath the access panel to catch any water that may come out.
6. Slowly rotate the pump filter counterclockwise until water starts to trickle out. Allow the water to drain completely.
7. Once the water has drained, carefully remove the pump filter by pulling it out.
8. Clean the pump filter by rinsing it under running water to remove any debris or obstructions.
9. Check the opening where the pump filter was located for any foreign objects or blockages. Remove any debris if found.
10. Reinsert the pump filter and rotate it clockwise until it is securely in place.
11. Replace the access panel by turning it clockwise until it is snug.
12. Close the washing machine door.
13. Plug in the washing machine or press the power button to turn it back on.
14. Run a test cycle to ensure that the error E17 has been resolved.
If the error E17 persists after following these steps, it is recommended to contact Bosch customer support for further assistance.
