Stuck on agent

My Bosch SHU43C dishwasher is doing something but not its regular process & the front panel agent indicator lamp is on. I tried to reboot the machine by de-energizing but with the same result.

    It will begin it's cycle and run for a minute or two and then it just stops. Ihave tries pushing the two buttons at the same time to cancel and drain and sometimes it will work after the reset other times it does not.

    I have tried regular wash and quick wash with the same resulting problem. I start the wash and it acts normally for about 1 minute preparing the wash cycle the countdown light is normal - I can hear the water start to fill then it stops. Then - the light on the wash button starts flashing and I hear a ticking sound - At this time the countdown light is off - there is also a sound lower near the bottom of the washer. I can push all three buttons to empty the tank - the countdown light goes to zero and the ticking stops. The tank empties.

Dishawasher won't drain, sounds like a stuck garbage disposal


check for a kink in the discharge hose. Also, the hose must go up higher than the top of the dishwasher, then descend to the drain. Otherwise the waste water will flow back into the tub by siphon action.

My Bosch SHU43C will sometimes make a loud noise


It may be more cost affective to just replace this unit. the circulation motors that are used in these dishwashers are not reliable. the wash impellers seems to have issues dealing with staying attached to the drive stud and shaft. this will cause the impeller ti shift inside the housing, causing noise and jams.

A new circulating impeller kit will cost about 100 dollars and, labor for this type of repair is 80 dollars an hour.

Our Bosch SHU43C Built-in Dishwasher sticks in the drying cycle.


I have the same dishwasher and started experiencing the same problem last week. It is now fixed (at least for the moment). Here's what I did first. I checked the drain pan under the machine for water(none), the heater for continuity(okay), the float for binding(none), and the float switch for proper functioning(okay). I tried turning the ckt breaker off for a couple of hours to see if that would reset the control module(no effect). I then dissasembled the front door and removed the control module. I had previously read about the common problem of a cold solder joint on the heater relay pin on the control board. My heater was working and the joint looked good but I resoldered it anyway. I reassembled everything and it worked perfectly! My conclusion is that it was either a cold solder joint that was somehow causing the problem or a connector issue that got resolved during my disassembly/reassembly. Hope this helps.

Bosch SHU43C installed in 2003


My Bosch SHU43C had the same exact problem. I found the below solution on this site. Perhaps you already seen it.

My SHU43C is just over 3 years old. I had a similar problem recently. First, there were a few floods. Then, the Bosch only drained non-stop. Even when I used the Cancel Drain buttons the drain pump would run without stopping. When I tried to run one of the cleaning cycles, no water entered the machine. Corrective: I removed the base plate, and saw that the red plastic floatation device was in the up position. Using a flashlight and a wooden spoon, I lightly toggled the red float stem down. I pushed regular clean cycle and kept toggling with the red float stem until the rinse water started to enter the machine (turning the red stem seems to also actuate a step in the program). Now the dishwasher runs normally. Voila!
