The reasons for the e14 error code

Most modern Siemens dishwashers are equipped with a flow water heater. At the same time, the device collects low-temperature water by running it in a small circle through the heater. The process stops when water reaches the required temperature.

Hence the question: how does the equipment know about how much water needs to be gained? Automatic washing machines have a pressure switch connected to the control module. Dishwashers have a similar system. But the pressure switch in it is replaced by a specific sensor that controls the flow of water. If it fails, the self-diagnosis system displays the E14 fault code.

A similar situation is the error’s reason in 65% of cases. Therefore, first of all, if there is the E14 system error, pay attention to this sensor. If everything is in order, check the tightness of the system. With a small leak, the display will show the E14 code. This indicates the formation of cracks.

The rarest causes are malfunctions of the inlet valve or control module.

However, there are can be problems with the electrical component of the device. It serves to power all the above-mentioned elements. Therefore, having checked the main components, pay attention to the circuit. This one connects the water flow sensor and the intake valve to the control module.
