Question about Bosch SHU9915UC Dishwasher

Open Question

Water puddle on bottom of bosch dishwasher. I put them in cleaner then they come out. I even ran the dishwasher two more cycles without soap so I wouldn't have all the white streaks but....

Dishes come out of the wash cycle wet, dirty, streaky, and disgusting.  I put them in cleaner then they come out.  I even ran two extra cycles without soap so I wouldn't have the white bumps and streaks.  I took out the bottom tray and there was a massive puddle under it.  I tried to clean it up with a dish towel and cut my finger on a piece of glass that was stuck into the edge of the filter.  But that couldn't block the whole thing.  Can I take apart the whole bottom and clean it out first?  How do you unscrew those funny looking screws throughout the bottom of the washer?  I need help.  Thanks,  Diana

I have a Bosch SHX46B05UC/14 and it stopped functioning right. It filled, it ran, it drained, it sounded okay, but I finally determined there wasn't enough circulation pump pressure to swing the spray arms. Turns out the problem was a pump pressure adjustment screw, accessible under the kick plate, had backed off--now if I can only figure out how to set it properly, low enough to clean the glassware, high enough not to break the pots and pans--or is it the other way around. I also found some beans in the drain sump (easy to remove cover plate from inside with a torx driver, large object trap not locked down properly and a riser for the upper spray arms not press fit sufficiently into pump outlet (I wonder if I blew the line while setting pump pressure. I AM looking for guidance on how to properly set the pump pressure, for the moment, I simply turned it into its spring loaded range and cranked it down a few turns.

searched oother sites. some report a circuit board problem where one of the solder joints overheated and burned out of contact. check yours and repair/replace if that is the problem.
if not at least you can rule it out.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description I'd say the issue actually is with the control...unfortunately. This is commonly associated with a heating fault on Bosch built dishwashers ( various models including Bosch, Thermador, Siemens, Gaggenau, and Neff ).

Since the issue is likely within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). These are the steps you'll need to follow to resolve it or at least investigate.

If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself...it really isn't very complicated.
It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board.

The culprit will 99% of the times be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sit`s and takes longer & longer to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed...this can also manifest as a long cycle time as I mentioned and eventually display's "1" on units with a display and usually very poor cleaning, no heating ( don't be fooled by the homes inlet hot water temperature ) as a result.

You can also run the unit through a regular or econo cycle ...any cycle with the exception of rinse & hold, and with the door panel removed place an ammeter on the gray/black wire it should draw 11 amps during the wash cycle...after it fills and the flow switch indicates it has adequate water to engage the heater.

**My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...or it will not last. Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on their behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)

**Please disconnect the power or turn off the breaker before attempting any service to the dishwasher.**

If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau/Siemens, to service your machine.

Thank`s for visiting "FixYa" for your repair inquiries. Please take a moment and rate this solution to it's helpfulness. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Does not clean like it did soap dispences goes through the cycles does not seem to have the pressure


Hello there"
Please go thru this list that i have provided for you and check each item ok
It doesn't get the dishes clean dot_lineone.gif 1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there, we recommend Dishwasher Magic®.

Palmolive liquid detergent was put in rinse aid recepticle.


I don't understand your question. But, I am going to try to answer based on a "given" I picked. Please read on.

Is the problem you put non dish washing soap into the dishwasher?

... and you want to remove it (soap) without removing ...

the receptacle?

the machine?

If you have non dishwashing soap in a dishwasher, the BIG problem is the suds, followed by the soap is not effective, and it cannot necessarily be removed from the dishes. The suds go from a couple little drops of soap to enough suds to fill Grand Central Station, including your kitchen. Am I close?

What I did when (I did it) this happened is, I put a product called "Anti-Foam" (I just HAPPEN to have a hot-tub) into the dishwasher which killed the suds. I cleaned the mess up off the floor, ran the rinse cycle only, dishwasher empty. Then, I ran the dishwasher again with dishwasher soap to make sure it was clean. THEN, I took the non dishwasher soap out of the cupboard where it sat next to the dishwasher soap and put it elsewhere!

So, what should you do? Go to the pool and hot tub place near you and get a small bottle of "Anti Foam" and do as I did. Expect to pay about $10.00 for the bottle.

Alterntively, you could remove the lower basket, sop as much water out as you can and then run the machine on a rinse cycle to see what happens.

While at the pool place, you might find a hot tub you like. Hey, you already have some of the chemical!

Bosch SHU4312 won't finish cycle, won't drain.


The control board on these units is prone to a cold solder joint cracking. I have read that Bosch recommends replacement and will supply the board, not covering labor. I repaired mine prior and have done one for a friend as well. Has lasted several years and counting
The symptom is constant cycling without ticking down the last few minutes

It sounds like the fill vlave is stuck open. This can happen if your pressure is low or if the machine is old. I would start by replacing the vlave.

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
