I solved the problem. It was only a co-incidence that the washer did not pump the water out after the power came back on.

First of all i had to see if the whole program worked and yes it did. I then had to verify to myself wether it was a program fault or a mechanical fault or a combination of both.

I began to dismantle machine to do a physical examination of pump. Upon my disbelief i had found a 1/2 pistacchio nut shell next to the impellor and 5 popcorn seeds.Seeing the pistacchio shell gave me a great sigh of relief as you would imagine.My next job was to apply 240v to the pump to verify
that it was mechanically and electrically sound which it was.

Everything was put back together and a wash program run.Ran like a dream.
There's an old saying, "never assume".My wife assumed a power blackout stuffed it up.Turning the power off at the machine or a powerblackout is the same thing, the program will restart again once power is restored.
My great concern about this incident is how those objects got past 3 sets of filters , the course one on top, the finer one under that and the really large fine one at the bottom. Regards F.Flex.

Bosch dishwasher Water pump not stopping


Hi.

You need to replace the pressure switch located near to the pump, in the drain assembly.
The main function of the pressure switch is to turn off pump when there is no more water.
The pressure switch can be tested reading ohms on switch contacts and jumping the switch. This must be done by a technician.

You can get parts and a quote on repair calling Bosch at the number listed on the manual.

Regards.

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on....


From your description, I doubt that the problem is door latch is the cause.
The first thing that a modern dishwasher does before it begins to fill with water is run the drain pump.  It appears that this DW is not progressing to the next cycle (inlet water) and because the pump runs even when the door is open, I agree that the controller card may have failed.
If possible, inspect all the wire connections (remove main power before you do this) ... if there is a loose connection, the controller could do odd things.
Good Luck!  Please report back what you find, OK?

Water left after finishing wash


I have a Bosch Dishwasher and the E-Nr is SGS4362EU/03. The machine is approximately 4 years old, in good condition and has been working very well. Suddenly, there is water remaining after it completes a 50 degrees C wash cycle. This is also evident with the pre wash cycle and the 65 degrees wash cycle.

I have checked and cleaned the filters. I have loosened the internal pump white cover (Torx T 20 screw) and checked for any physical blockage - none. I have also checked for any drainage hose kinks - none.

I have tried a series of empty washes and the machine drains the water during the wash cycles. The dishes are also have a dull colour and show show signs of not being properly rinsed during the wash cycle.

Please assist.

Reagrds,

Brian

Water doesn't pump out


I had a similar problem with mine although it is a different model #. I fixed mine by removing a small plastic basket looking thing in the middle of the stainless steel screen looking drain. Just turn it counter-clockwise and lift it out. Mine was almost completely plugged with lime build-up. There are 2 parts to this and they snap apart pretty self explanatory if you examine it. Then just scrub off lime build up with old toothbrush etc. Bail out as much of dirty water as you can and re-asemble.
