Question about Bosch Dishwashers

1 Answer

Ran the dishwasher and the water didn't drain completely. Checked the drain line for clog - it was clear. Scooped out the remaining water (barely covered the flat wire mesh filter in bottonm of the machine) and cleaned off the canister mesh filter and carefully relocked the filtyer in place. Tried to run the machine last night. Soap tray opened but apparently no water cycled through the machine as all the soap was in the bottom of the machine. The heat never turned on to dry the dishes and the machine was still humming as though stuck mid cycle. I cancelled the cycle and now don't kow what to do. Any suggestions?

    Rickzilla;



    I tried your suggestion. Tripped the circuit breaker and then reapplied the power. Tried to start a new cycle but the water won't start flowing in the new cycle; it just hums and no water. I remember I bought the unit because it had a no flood function. Perhaps I need to reset this function? I tried to prime the pump with hot water bet all the water I add top the bottom just drains out now. I am at a total loss as to what to do next. Any more advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Ramona Doug,
Try disconnecting power from your dishwasher for a few minutes to clear the memory and then reapply power again. Start a wash cycle without dishes on the hottest water setting and after a few minutes.. pause the wash and add a few cups of white vinegar to the wash water.,. that will help break up deposits in the system.. See if that gets you going properly.
Regards

    Hi Again.. ( just call me rick..that name was taken so I made up the zilla part..LOL) Anyway... The no flood function is a clue.. normally .. the no flood function is what they call a shuttle valve inline with your water supply..if you have a water pressure burst.. a ball bearing inside a housing moves forward to stop all water from continuing to flow.. I'll have to check later but if that shuttle valve is internal to your dishwasher.. the only way to reset it is to relieve water pressure coming in then gradually turn it back on.. A high inrush of water will cause that shuttle valve ball bearing to stop incoming water.. Let me check a bit further and if you can try relieving the water pressure from the dw.. and then gradually turning it on.. if that allows water flow into the system.. I am not all that familiar with Bisch products but wil investigate a bit more.. Be back at you as soon as I can..

    Regards

    Hello Ramona Doug,

    Have you made any progress with your water inlet problem? I had to take some time away to marry off one of my daughters so I am just now getting back into things. Please update me on where we stand.

Washer won't drain. Water remains in bottom of washer after cycled is complete.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn't overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn't working properly, the drain pump isn't working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home's drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

My GE TRITON XL dishwasher doesn't drain completely when done...no problem while running, but there is always some water in the bottom ....any suggestions>


I've had this problem too, and fixed it by cleaning the lower drain basket. But it could also be your pump or drain hose is clogged. To clean the drain basket, I removed the lower rack and spray arm. To remove the spray arm, turn it counter clockwise while gently lifting it up. There's a lock ring that will also need to be removed. (Remember how these parts come off and in what order.) There is a vertical tube that is attached to the upper and lower spray arms that is secured by a hex-screw that you will need to loosen and disengage from the lower spray arm. After this, you can remove the small protection grid then reach in and clean out the gunk from the basket. I ran a rinse cycle to see if it did the trick and sure enough, it now drains. By the way, I am NOT a professional.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.



First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Dishwasher not rince & when cycle ends not clear water remains


check the drain connection where it connect to the sink these are bad to clog. In your case it may be a partial clog also check for any kinks in the drain line.make sure your line go above the connection point and then back down .This will stop water from flowing from the sink.
You can take apart the pump usually torx screws and remove any debris. Do this last

Dishwasher flooding


When you say that you tried other solutions.. it's hard to know which you've tried and which you haven't so I will suggest some basics first.. ( if you've tried them, then disregard)...
Have you checked or addressed the following:
  1. Cleaned the drain filter
  2. Checked the drain hose for crimps or restrictions
  3. Sure the drain system ( such as your feed thru the garbage disposal isn't clogged or restricting flow)
  4. Checked your water pump for an obstruction or you can determinbe if it is actually pumping
  5. The feed and returm hose ..to anf from the pump are not clogged, pinched or restricting flow.
These are the basics that you should have examined or confirmed aren't causing the problems you are seeing. One other as well.. are you sure your water inlet valve is completely shutting water from leaking in and over-filling the system? Check these items and you should be able to diagnose where the problem is.. Hope this helps you,

Figidaire Dishwasher ModelFDB65BRAC1


I just had this problem with a zanussi dishwasher - I opened it this afternoon to find the bottom full of water - luckily not deep enough to flood my kitchen when I opened the door. I determined that the sink drain was clear (ran water, could hear it going down the drain outside), so the problem had to be in the dishwasher or drain hose. I poured just a little mr muscle sink & plughole unblocker in the bottom of the machine where the trap is, left it about 30 mins as per instructions, followed by a little boiled water - no difference. Scooped out the water, removed the filter (the big round bit, not just the trap that you pull out and empty) and scooped out till I could see what appears to be the out pipe. Thought what the heck and ran a rinse cycle - no dishes, no detergent and lower tray and arm thing removed for convenience. Water drained just fine, ran a second rinse cycle which got rid of the suds from the plughole unblocker. I now have an extremely clean and sparkling dishwasher and am about to run a load of dishes through it.

I hope that my post is helpful to you, I don't know if all the steps are necessary, it may have been a freak occurrence that would have gone away with a simple rinse cycle. It may of course be a problem with the pump on yours, I was hoping that wasn't the case on mine, and I had lots of old towels on hand in case water came out when I opened the door. But it's possible your machine has the same problem as mine and that this info works for you, I hope that is the case.

Standing Water in Dishwaaser


Since water doesn't drain out ,it could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!
