Question about Bosch Dishwashers

Open Question

Bosch dishwasher serial number SGS43T58GB

The check water light keeps coming on and I can not find my booklet for it. An engineer years ago told me on my previous machine to tip it backwards which seems to let water out of the machine. The flooring is in need of renewing anyway but is there a better method of curing the machine's problem. I don't know if I insured it either so if not is it worth getting a repair man in or should I get a new machine?
I have used a Finish dishwasher cleaner since it started playing up but it didn't help.

SOURCE: bosch dishwasher motor keeps running no water

Hola Lewis!

This is such an easy repair, you'll be shocked and surprised! The reason this is happening is that the computer or timer has detected a "flood" condition and has permanently energized the drain pump to clear the "flood".

What you'll need to fix it...
1.) Shop-Vac (for vacuuming water) with a crevice tool (like one of these)
2.) T20 Torx bit with a driver. Torx sizing here. (You can get a set at Home Depot or Lowes)

All you gotta do now is get down on the floor and remove the kick panel. Then remove the screws holding the water valve and lift it up out of its' plastic holding. Now your shop-vac w/ crevice tool can be used. Stick the crevice tool in there (about 10") and vacuum up all the water that's been trapped in the basin. (you may need a flashlight to see what's going on back in there...) After the water is gone, your DW will work fine.

Here's how it works... About 10" behind the inlet valve is a "float" made of styrofoam. When water gets into the basin, the float rises and eventually trips a "flood condition" switch. This switch shuts the unit down and will only allow the drain pump to operate. So what you want to do is get the water out of the basin.

There may be a reason for the basin flooding, though. Suds (caused by too much (or the wrong) detergent), an actual water leak from the valve, etc... So after you get the water out of there and the unit is working again, you may want to monitor it (like, only run it when someone is home) for a while just to make sure that a real flood does not occur.

Hope this helps.
SG

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher stuck on '1'/restarts & sanitize not lighting

it possibly could be a bad soldier joint on the heater relay of the circuit board. but if it is then let an authorized bsh tech replace the board since that is a 5 year warrenty part usually. it also could be problem with the NTC-HEAT ASSY- OR FLOW CONTROL. which are all part of the heat assemby.

but the first thing i would check since the time is jumping around on that model would be to make sure that the polarity on the power cord isnt reversed where its hooked up to the d/w

Bosch dishwasher is not filling with water and detergent is not being released.


The soap wont come out if there is no water. Does the detergent flap open? If so, the dispenser is OK. If not, you need a new dispenser. If the machine is not filling, check the pressure switch and or the tubes that go to the pressure switch, they may be blocked, tricking the machine into thinking its already full of water.

I have a Bosch dishwasher model #SHU53A05UC/14. the control unit blew up, like roman candle, the 4th of july, the sparks the smoke, etc, is it still worth fixing? it's a 2002 or early model.


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I'd suggest before proceeding too far or deciding anything you contact Bosch or at least check out the link below.

http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/

**Bosch issued a recall concerning control board issue a couple of years ago and yours definitely falls into the models involved though the serial number will be the deciding factor...still worth looking into.**

Thanks for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided here today and good luck.


Regards, Macmarkus :)

what is happenig i believe and has happened to me 2 times is that the water level float that is on the left side of dishwasher is stuck.

Either remove side panel and flick lever or pull dishwasher out and tap lower portion of panel and this will cause the level to move and then see hat happens

SHU43 Bosch Built-in dishwasher


Try running citric acid (3 tablespoons) through.
You can get it from a drug store.
Or, run 1/2 cup vinegar through.
Do this in both the dish washer and the disposal.
After doing this try running some water into the disposal and then see if the next time you run the dishwasher if it still smells.
You could be having a problem with water not staying in the drain trap under your sink that is why if you run water and fill the trap, then you will find out if it was the dry trap that caused the smell from sewer gases backing up into the house trough the garbage disposal.
