"E3" on a Bosch Maxx means the door is not closed properly. Either there something preventing it from closing properly (blockage) or there is a fault with the locking mechanism.

I called Bosch and the lady spoke to me over the phone on how to fix this, it requires a machine reset as follows:

1. With the power on press and hold down the start button.
2. While still holding the button down turn the dial one click anti-clockwise (15 minute cycle on mine)
3. If it shows '8888' on the display then skip to step 5, if it shows 'E3' turn the dial back to the off position.
4. Press and hold the start button down and again turn the dial one click anti-clockwise (15 minute cycle on mine)
5. With '8888' now displaying hold the start button in for 1 minute.
6. Stop pressing the start button.
7. Return the dial to the off position.

Hopefully that's it!

DRNR response was on the money.
I had issues with this for years before it completely failed. Bought $50 door mechanism and replaced myself.

6 months later - machine operating near flawlessly. Very occasionally the same error would occur, but we've found that by pressing the start button before closing the door, the error never occurs. Seems that the door mechanism is activated more certainly when operated this way.

So before replacing the door mechanism, I would first suggest the "press start, wait for click, before firmly closing door" method.

    Hello sysclear - can you tell me where you bought the door mechanism from? For about a year we have had issues with the door and need to give it a few good nudges before the machine will recognise that the door is in fact closed. Over the weekend it stopped working and is displaying the E3 message so I think it's time we replace the door mechanism. Thank you, Sam.

    I bought the part from an appliance spares store. Just google to find Bosch spare parts stockists in your location.

    Exactly what was the case for mine! The temperature button got stuck! Almost bought a new machine until I accidentally touched it and it popped up!

What does error code E2 mean? I have a Bosch Maxx Classic.


The e2 error is a generic error that the machine shows if it's been overloaded or if the load becomes unbalanced during a wash cycle.

to fix you must do a master reset of the washing machine.

1. Close the door and make sure the dial is pointing to the "OFF" function
2. Hold the Start/Pause button and turn the dial anti clockwise (to the left) to the "express 15 min" program at the same time.
3. Hold the Start/Pause button for a minute (the e2 message is meant to start flashing after a minute of holding the button down however with my washing machine this didn't happen)
4. Release the button and turn the dial back to the "Off" function.
5. Select any program and the message should not be appearing.

Bosch washer error code e3 what does it mean?


Error "E3" on a Bosch front loader means there is a problem with the door. Either it is not closed properly (user error or a blockage) or the locking mechanism has a fault. Check to see that there is no object shoved in the latch hole (our 2yo just did that) preventing the door from closing properly. If it is not that, a technician is advised. I tried to get into the machine to fix out issue but could not get to where the issue is.
