If you have already tried both pressing the start/stop button, and holding it for at least two seconds before releasing it. Then press the power scrub and the delicate cycle button at the same time.

If your Siemens dishwasher will not reset, you need to access the wiring in the lower level of your Siemens dishwasher. To do this you need to pull your dishwasher out and remove the screws on the top of it. From there you will be able to take off the side panels. The area that you want to focus on is the bottom.

Oftentimes a factory reset is triggered by excess water that has pooled as a result of the flood prevention system. If there is any water in the area use either a sponge or a towel to soak it up. Always make sure that you have disconnected your dishwasher from its power source before taking it apart. 

Once you’ve removed all of the excess water. Replace your side paneling and plug your dishwasher back in. Now you can run a regular reset. When there is water in the bottom of your dishwasher this prevents it from letting you run a simple reset process. That is the first place to check.

Otherwise, there could be a bigger issue with loose hoses or power cables.

If your Siemens dishwasher displays the E15 reset your dishwasher will not let you turn it on. Until you address the issue at hand, your dishwasher simply will not turn on if you attempt to run the wash cycle. 

If your Siemens dishwasher displays the E15 error code you need to run a particular reset. This error code is usually a sign that the connectors to your water supply have come loose. This can happen over time due to the extreme temperatures and the frequent usage of your Siemens dishwasher. 

You can find these connection points on the back of your dishwasher. There are two that you need to check. One will be located a little way up the wall of the back of your dishwasher on the left side. There is a smaller one that is lower down that should be checked as well. 

If these connection points are loose, your dishwasher will have no way to fill its water supply properly. While you may still get water, it will result in a flood at the bottom of the machine. 

What the E15 message means is that the water protection system has been activated. This will prevent further water from getting into your machine to prevent any further flooding.
