Bosch Dishwasher not turning on

My dishwasher worked fine night before lat but when I went to press the on button nothing came on. The regular cycle button lit up almost automatically but still nothing with the power button. We tried turning off the breaker and still nothing. We have no manuals for this so we don't know what to do. Appreciate any advice before calling a repairman.

Thanks,
Rebecca

    Mid cycle with 11 minutes left to run we opened the door to stop it in order to leave the building for a few hours (Unavoidable) then when we returned to restart it. Nothing happened. We shut down the circuit breaker to interrupt the power. It does not come back on. How do we rectify this without having a repairman come in. Sounds simple but we are having no luck.

dave...why did the breakers pop? Sometimes, this is caused by a floating ground...the voltage from the other side of the line comes across and starts to fry things like circuit boards. What did the electrician do? Did he check the connection at the dishwasher itself?

I had this same problem and in addition as it ran water dripped out the bottom while the dishwasher was running just before the tap light came out. Check the outlet hose is not blocked. Ours was blocked at the T junction where it met the sink outlet. Once the blockage was cleared we hit another problem - the pump kept trying to drain - even when the door was open. Found an excellent solution to that on this site. It had occured as the previous problem had casued the flood switch to be triggered. We had to tile the sihwasher back 45 degrees to fix it. Now its workig fine again.

SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher will not power on

I have a bosch dishwasher model 2046. When you try start the cycle you hear the timer inside start to activate but the cycle doesn't start. The light in the start switch does not come on as well but I think it may be burned out. We have checked the breaker and I seems to have power.

Just had the same problem, same model. Found the wiring below the front cover fried. So now I'm checking to see if anyone else had this happen.

Make sure you visit the Bosch dishwasher recall website as this model is under the recall with a faulty controller which may cause a fire! Check your model under http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/
then call 800.856.9226 to setup a recall repair appointment. We just found out about this recall and was never notified by Bosch even though we registered our unit after we purchased it...talk about poor customer service! Hope this helps!

How do we put it through a test mode?


Here you go, both answers :>)
Bosch Dishwasher Troubleshooting Your Bosch dishwasher can run a test cycle which will quickly go through each stage of a wash programme in order to find out at what point a fault is occurring. It will only give you a general idea of where the problem lies but is a useful first step in diagnosing the issue.

The steps to start the test cycle vary depending on what model you have but the basic method is similar across the range. It might be that your dishwasher doesn't have the same button labelling as described in the steps below. In that case try holding down the buttons which have similar names. After a little trial and error you'll find the right combination.
  • Make sure the dishwasher is switched off.
  • Press and hold the Power Scrub Plus and Regular Wash buttons.
  • Turn on the dishwasher, then release the two buttons.
  • The light above each of these buttons should flash.
  • Start the test cycle by pressing the Power Scrub Plus and Regular Wash buttons again.
  • The test programme will begin and an error code will be displayed at the end of the cycle if a fault has been detected.
You can find a list of Bosch dishwasher error codes and their definitions here.

How do i operate a basic bosch dishwasher


On many Bosch dishwshers (especially those with the controls on top), they expect your to press the appropriate cycle and option(s) buttons, and then press the Start key, ALL WITH THE DOOR OPEN. Immediately after pressing the START button, close the door (within 3 seconds), and the dishwasher should start.

On other Bosch dishwashers, if you open the door, the poser button is automatically turned off. On those models, you must close the door, turn the Power button ON, and THEN press the appropriate cycle & options buttons. If your dishwasher has a START button, then press it; otherwise just wait 10 second with the door closed.

See? There is no such thing as a "basic bosch dishwasher". Next time, if you have a question, please provide the model number of your dishwasher (or other appliance).

How to run self test on bosche dishwasher


Here is an excerpt from "Bosch Dishwasher Troublesoooting".

Running a Test Cycle
Bosch dishwashers have a test cycle which can be run as a troubleshooting measure. The method to run this test cycle is similar across the Bosch dishwasher range so if your dishwasher features seems different from those described below then try experimenting, as the process is fairly straight forward and will be very similar. Bosch dishwasher model numbers are usually found around the top or lip of the door. One of the most common differences between dishwasher models is simply the names of the buttons. For example in the first example below, POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH may be called WASH and ECO depending on your dishwasher model and the country you are in. The other key difference is whether your dishwasher has a display panel (which can display error codes) or not (in which case a program light will illuminate to tell you the fault.
To run the test cycle hold down the POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH buttons. Whilst held down press the ON/OFF button. The lights above them should flash. Now you can check the status of each dishwasher program by pressing its button. Now you can run the full test cycle = Press the POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH buttons again. The dishwasher will start up and when the cycle has ended one, if you have no display panel on your dishwasher model the indicator lights will illuminate if a malfunction was detected as follows -
CLEAN - A temperature sensor fault. If this is the case then the test cycle will be very short as the dishwasher will terminate the test once it's been detected.
RINSE/DRY - A water sensor/filling fault. If this is the problem then the test cycle will not complete as the dishwasher cannot detect the right level of water, the dishwasher will just keep filling and draining again.
WASH - A heating fault. Check your heating element.
If you do have a display panel on your Bosch dishwasher then after the cycle is complete an error code will be shown if a fault has been detected. The error codes are as follows -
0 - No errors have been detected.
1 - A water sensor/filling fault.
2 - A heating fault.
4 - A water filling fault. This can also appear as F on the display during a normal cycle.
8 - A temperature sensor fault.
When troubleshooting your Bosch dishwasher, running the above test cycle is a good start in diagnosing the problem and should give you an idea of where the problem lies with your Bosch dishwasher and what fixes and repair are in order. Our general troubleshooting page will give you some ideas on other things to check on your dishwasher. Good luck!

My Bosch dishwasher fills with water but when it comes to the wash cycle it does nothing.


If your dishwasher is brand new, then call Bosch service as they can repair it under warranty.

Bosch SHX99A15UC went completely dead. Circuit


no it wouldn't, this is a common failure on bosch dishwashers. you have either a bad control or a bad touch membrane. parts are fairly expensive and only way to know for sure is to replace one. I usually find that the control panel is at fault most times

Bosch dishwasher shx55m with bottom tub full of water


The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.
