Question about Bosch Dishwashers

1 Answer

Dishwasher switched itself off during cycle - no power now


My S9J1B Bosch dishwasher stopped working during a cycle. I cleared some pips out of it and it started to work again. However yesterday I cleaned the dishwasher with bleach to remove dirt and started a new cycle, but it cut out after about half an hour (I think) and there was about half an inch of water at the bottom. There is now no power to the dishwasher. I have removed the water. Does anyone know how I can get the dishwasher power to come back on? None of our light switches are off so it hasn't tripped the electicity in the house - just the dishwasher.

    Thanks for getting back!

    After I cleaned out the pips, I was able to do run a complete cycle with dishes successfully. However because I had allowed some mould to grow inside, I then cleaned it with bleach. It was on the second cycle that it cut out completely (no lights on the buttons).

    I'm looking to get someone in to help (so expensive) as I was happy to troubleshoot (remove pips etc) when there was dishwasher power, but now that there's none I may have to hand it over. When it comes to electricity it gets scary. I have no idea bow to get it to come back on again - the dishwasher is built into a cupboard.

It is possible that some of the pips have been washed down into the drain pump and jammed the impellor, follow the drain hose back to the pump underneath of the dishwasher make sure the d/washer is switched off at the power supply before you attempt this, if you have reasonable mechanical skill you should be able to remove front of pump to clean it.

Bosch Dishwasher drain mechanism starts itself a few hours after a completed cycle and won't stop. I reset the dishwasher, but it remains unusable for a few days. If I turn on the dishwasher, th

this could mean there is water leak and it collects at the base of the dishwasher leading to moisture detection circuit tripping. when you leave it for a few days the water dries up and trip is removed. check door seals for leak most likely at the base of the door. turn power off when working on dishwasher.

Bosch dishwasher doesn't drain anymore

I would check the pump if its clear but not pumping down correctly check the drain hose if that's also not clogged then look into replacing the pump.

Opened door on cycle, will not continue cycle after closing door

The most common problem for a dishwasher to not restart after the door being closed is a failed door latch interlock switch. Adjusting / repairing it is not too difficult.

Of course this assumes that the Dishwasher power circuit from the circuit breaker remains powered up.

Good Luck!

Bosch dishwasher has water in bottom after cycle is complete


Kindly check for the following :

Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit.
Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise
If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.


Check pump impeller for damage.
Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.

Please contact for any further clarifications.

A Fixya Rating would be appreciated if.
