Bosch shx33a starts, fills, then stops. Drains OK when forced to end cycle.

I know this may sound very silly but i had the same problem with mine and all i had to do was pull it out a bit as the drainage pipe at the back was only slightly sqashed against the cupboard but it does matter

Why doesn't my Fisher Pakel dishwasher drawer not clean the dishes anymore?

No water Entering Dishwasher

Check to make sure water is entering the dishwasher do this by starting a wash cycle wait for it to fill and start washing then open door. If there is no water you will need to check the water inlet valve and the float switch. This video will walk you through checking both out. Click on links to see a photo tutorial of replacing those parts.

Low Water level

This is another common problem. To check that you have the proper water level you will need to turn dishwasher to a wash cycle wait for it to fill, when it starts washing stop and open the door. Now refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper water leve. They usually refer to a fixed point in the dishwasher or to a specific measurement. This ensures that your dishwasher has enough water to wassh properly. If your water level is low you will need to check the water inlet valve and the float switch. The video will walk you thru inspecting and testing these components. The links will lead you thru a photo tutorial on replacing these parts.

Wash Arms

First check to see if they are moving. To do this start dishwasher into a wash cycle wait for it to fill and start washing open door and rotate wash arms to a certain position remeber this position then close the door let run for a few seconds and open door. If they are not moving check to see if they turn freely if not replace. Next remove the spray arms and check for clogged holes. If all looks clear you will need to check that the circulating pump is not clogged up or has failed.

Drain Problem

This is one of the most common reasons. To check open door after a cycle and check to see if any water is standing inside. If there is you have a drain issue. Could be the high loop or air gap is not correct. The drain may have a clog. The drain pump may have failed. The drain pump can be checked for the proper ohm reading (refer to tech sheet). If it is out of specification replace the pump. Check to see if the drain pump is getting power. If the drain pump is getting power but not running you will need to replace. If it is running but still leaving water behind you will need to remove the drain pump and check/replace for obstructions.


This is the least likely cause.Check to make sure it goes to each cycle for the proper amount of time. The main control or Timer has a pre determined amount of time programmed into it. This determines how much time to spend at each cycle. The time is usually printed on the tech sheet. The tech sheet is located somewhere on your dishwasher. It could be behind the front panel,behind the console, behind the toe kick, somewhere on the sides. If it does not stay at each cycle for the proper lenght of time you will need to replace the control.

KUDS01FLSS0 Dishwasher - tub slwoly filling with

Slow fill of water is due to the strainer clogging. Strainer is located on the body of the machine where the inlet water hose is connected.

Clean all the water flow tubes in the machine.Clean the solenoid valve opening also.

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve....

I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwasher supply line should be connected to the left water pipe.
Regardless, the water temperature doesn't fully explain the symptoms, especially the detergent left in the door (assuming you're using fresh detergent and it's not caking in the door prior to washing).
I would check the blades again. Even thought they may appear clean, there may be debris in them that get forced into the openings during operation, but fall away from the openings when the water flow stops. Remove the blades, run water into them, then invert them to drain while rocking back and forth. If there's crud in them, you may need to do this several times.

Open the dishwaser while still filling now keeps going to error

After reading a few of the other Haier models troubles, I pulled the unit out and tip it at 45 degrees backwards for around minute. Water pored from the back of the unit, once cleaned water up reinstalled unit and all seems to be back in working order.

Bosch Dishwaher shy56a

Bosch dishwashers have a seperate pump for washing and another for draining. Try making it fill more than once. There is usually a timed fill and the float stops it before it overfills It also might prevent it from washing without enouth water Try defeating the door switch and play with the float during fill. There may be a sensor that won't let it go into wash. Be prepared to get a little wet if it should start up suddenly. A slightly safer way is to fill it with the sprayer from the sink. and see if it will go into wash.

Asko 1585 Dishwasher

do they flash lik all on one side then the other? Start a cycle, then open the door. Do the lights flash the same way when you open the door as when it stops? if soyou may have a door that needs to be adjusted so it closes better. when the cycle ends, is there any standing water in the bottom? if so you may have a poorly routed drain hose or a partial clog in it. Last, pull the bottom panels off and look inside the bottom of the dishwasher and see if there is standing water down there . If ther is you have aleak somewhere or a bad drain pump. You r only other choice is a bad pressure switch. If youve already adjusted the water fil to the proper level ( just up to the grey plastic housing that the lower wash arm sits on) tehre really aernt any more options. Hope this helps!

Miele G638 dishwasher.

Hi John I have the same problem, the manual says that it is because the water level is to low, this is checked by opening the door after the machine has stopped filling and before it starts to wash, the level should be 4mm above the main plastic filter ring, the level has two settings, these can be adjusted by pressing the start button and the On/Off button at the same time, release the start button and turn the control to economy 45,if the start light does not come on the level is set to normal, to increase level press the start button again and the light should come on, this will give you an increased filling time. it did no help me but it may help you. good luck
