The E17 error in a Bosch washing machine typically indicates a problem with the water supply. Here are a few steps you can take to solve this error:
1. Check the water supply: Make sure that the water supply to the washing machine is turned on and that there is adequate water pressure. Inspect the hoses for any kinks or blockages that may be restricting the flow of water.
2. Clean the filters: The E17 error can also be triggered by clogged filters. Locate the filters on the inlet valves at the back of the machine and remove them. Clean them thoroughly under running water to remove any debris or sediment. Once cleaned, reattach the filters and ensure they are securely in place.
3. Check the drain hose: A blocked or kinked drain hose can also cause the E17 error. Ensure that the drain hose is free from any obstructions and that it is not bent or twisted. Straighten out any kinks or loops in the hose to allow for proper drainage.
4. Restart the machine: After performing the above steps, restart the washing machine and see if the E17 error persists. If the error message still appears, it may be necessary to contact a professional technician for further assistance.
It’s important to note that these steps are general guidelines and may vary depending on the specific model of your Bosch washing machine. Refer to the user manual or contact Bosch customer support for more detailed instructions.
