Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher
There was a layer of water at the bottom of my dishwasher 2 days ago. I followed some online instructions and opened the left hand screw on the metal plate and managed to get some pips and a small piece of glass out of the small filter/grate.
However, now when I switch it on, the engine sounds like it's running, but no water is pumped in and the plates are dry.
I've read that it might be caused by the 'floater' and that the 'floater' needs to be in the 'up' position. BUT...what is a floater and where is it?? What do I need to do to get to it (unscrew screws etc).
I don't know what model my Bosch is as I can't find a model number anywhere on the machine - it's built into a cupboard.
The model number is laser etched into the top of the inner door if you shine a torch across the top you should be able to read it sometimes they are quite faint,all bosch dishwashers are fitted with an anti flood device triggered by water in the base appliance will only drain out and do nothing else the water needs to be drained out. the easiest way is to tip the machine backwards with a towel on the floor to collect the water( will be about a pint!) or if you leave it stood in a warm kitchen after a few days the water will evaporate and appliance will start up again.

Tips for a great answer:
I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
