Therefore, we need to consider every possible issue to fix this error code from displaying into your dishwasher.

Here we have listed some potential problems along with a solution to fix the E25 error code in your dishwasher. 

Clogged Drain Pump

The first problem I would like to list in this article is a clogged drain pump.

The blocked drain pump is one of the primary reasons that can cause draining issues in the Bosch dishwasher.

If your dishwasher is struggling to drain dirty water after the cycle, there could be clogged in the drain pump. 

The dishwasher relies on a drain pump to pump out dirty water.

It is located at the bottom of the dishwasher and connected with the circulation pump of the dishwasher.

If it is clogged, you need to clean it thoroughly and remove it from the dishwasher. 

Solution

The drain pump can get clogged when a foreign object gets stuck inside the dishwasher drain pump.

Similarly, if you have not cleaned your dishwasher drain pump for a while, there is a high possibility of food particles or debris being built up inside the dishwasher drain pump. 

When this happens, your dishwasher will start encountering an E25 error code in your dishwasher.

So I recommend you clean the dishwasher drain pump and see if the problem persists or not.

Follow the below step-wise instruction to clean the Bosch dishwasher drain pump.

  1. First of all, shut off the power and water supply in the dishwasher. It will prevent injuries and flooding while repairing the dishwasher. 
  2. Now open the dishwasher door and then remove the dishwasher drain compartment filter. 
  3. Now gently remove the pump cover and clear out if any foreign object is present. Similarly, don’t forget to clean debris and food dirt from there. 
  4. To check if you have properly cleaned the filter or not, remove the dishwasher impeller. If it can turn without any problem, the blockage or clogged is gone from the dishwasher. 
  5. Now reinstall the pump cover and filter and see if the problem persists or not. 

This is how you should clear out the foreign object or food debris from the Bosch dishwasher. If the problem persists and the dishwasher still shows the E25 error code go to the next section. 

Clogged air gap

A clogged air gap is another major reason that can cause the E25 error code in your Bosch dishwasher.

There is a pipe in the drain pump that is built with an air gap.

The main function of this pipe is to prevent contaminated water from reentering the dishwasher. 

In order words, it is also called a backflow prevention pipe. It is found in almost every Bosch dishwasher.

There must be smooth airflow in the pipe in order to function correctly. It can stop operating when it gets clogged by dust, dirt, or any food particles. 

Solution

A dishwasher air gap is located at the bottom of the dishwasher. It is fitted and mounded just two inches above the sink.

It mainly prevents the drain water from getting back into the dishwasher.

The older model of the Bosch dishwasher does not have an air gap.

If you are using the latest model of Bosch dishwasher, there could be an obstruction that is causing the E25 error code in the dishwasher.

Here is the step-wise instruction to clean the clogged air gap in the Bosch dishwasher. 

  1. First of all, turn off the power and water supply in the dishwasher. 
  2. Open the dishwasher door and then remove the lowermost rack.
  3. Now remove the drain filter and remove the chrome cover over the air gap. 
  4. Unscrew the plastic cover from the dishwasher.
  5. Now check if there is the presence of any kinds of accumulated or foreign materials.
  6. After this, restart your Bosch dishwasher and see if the problem persists or not. 

This is how you can remove the foreign object from the dishwasher air gap.

I hope that the method has worked in your model dishwasher.

If it didn’t work in your model, visit the Bosch official website and search for your dishwasher model.

Download the user manual depending on your dishwasher model.

In the user manual, you will find everything about the air gap and ways to remove clogged or foreign objects from the dishwasher. 

Clogged Drainpipe

A clogged drain pipe or drain hose is another major issue that shows the E25 error code in the Bosch dishwasher.

If you have not cleaned your dishwasher for a long period, consider cleaning it.

It prevents E24 and E25 error codes in your dishwasher. The drain pipe is located at the bottom of the Bosch dishwasher.

You need to remove your dishwasher from the kitchen cabinet in order to access the drain hose from the dishwasher.

After this, you can easily access and remove the drain pipe from your dishwasher.

Solution

One end of the drain hose is connected to the drain pump and another end to the garbage disposal.

If you have not cleaned the garbage disposal for a long time, I recommend you check if there is a clogged or food particles building up.

Here is the step-wise instruction to clean the drain hose from the Bosch dishwasher. 

  1. First of all, remove the water supply pipe and the power cord from the power source. 
  2. Remove the dishwasher from the kitchen cabinet. 
  3. Depending upon the dishwasher model, you need to remove the rear panel to access the dishwasher drain hose. 
  4. Once you access the bottom part of the dishwasher there, you will drain the hose connected to the dishwasher drain pump. 
  5. Remove the drain hose from the circulation pump. 
  6. Now clean the drain hose thoroughly by putting water and using a brush. 
  7. After cleaning the drain hose, reinstall the drain hose properly in the dishwasher drain pump. 
  8. Plug-in power and water supply into the dishwasher and turn on the dishwasher. 

Now see if the dishwasher shows the E25 error code in the dishwasher control panel or not. If the problem persists, check the next problem. 

Loose Impeller cover

When you start the dishwasher, it will spin the impeller and sprays water into the dishes.

Impeller plays an essential role in the dishwasher during the wash cycle.

If the impeller cover is loose, it can also show the E25 error code in the Bosch dishwasher. 

If the Impeller cover is not correctly placed as it needs to be, it can trigger a drain issue in your dishwasher.

When the impeller cover gets loosened, it lets too much water drain into the dishwasher and causes the pump to overwork itself. 

Solution 

The solution to a loose impeller cover is very simple; all you need to do is ensure that it should not be loose.

You can use your finger to tighten the impeller cover in your dishwasher.

You don’t even need tools to tighten the impeller cover.

Once you set the impeller cover incorrect position, restart your dishwasher and see if the dishwasher is showing an E25 error code or not. 

What to do if the problem persists?

You can call the Bosch dishwasher service center, where they will guide you to fix the E25 error code in the dishwasher.
