SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher pump keeps emptying

Disconnect the power to the unit. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher. You will probably find it is full of water. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water. There is a float that will stop the operation of the unit and run the pump if water is in this tray. Test the unit. If there are no leaks, check the drain hose under the sink. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO ABOVE THE TOP OF THE MACHINE THEN TO THE DRAIN. If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overflow into the tray under it.

If there is no water in the pan under the dishwasher there may be a problem with the pressure switch at the side of the pump housing but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.

You need to use something with citric acid in it like a can of frozen OJ or tang, the citric acid helps break up deposits. (run without any dishes in it) Hope it helps.

Bosch SHU43C problems


possibility is the pressure chamber or hose (pressure chamber to sump) is blocked and the microswitch is being activated because the water is not entering the tank quick enough. Isolate from electric, remove lid and left panel (looking from the front). There is a plastic chamber bottom right of left side with two microswitches, either this is blocked or the hose that runs from it to the right and along the back of the kick panel and into the sump. Clear either or both (make sure all hoses are pushed true when repositioning). Check also that the spray arm holes are not blocked as the water flowing through them makes the arm spin, if they are block the pressure is reduced. Finally, remove the filters and look into the sump (if the back of the sump is 12 o clock) look at approx 2 oclock and you will see a hole that draws the water in to circulation pump (sometimes covered with an extra piece of plastic that can be clipped off) put you finger in there and see if you can feel any obstructions, if so remove. (you may find that cling wrap or a dishwasher tab packet has got in there and is stopping the motor running to full capacity.

Hope this helps

My washer will not drain the water I think that the pump has gone out in it is it going to be cost efective to put a new pump in it or should i just replace the entire unit


You could just need to clean out the sump if the drain pump impeller is jammed. Below is a link to a video you can download that will show you how to repair a Bosch Dishwasher that isn't draining.

Dishwasher leaves baked on soap scum on al dishes and everything ....even on the dishwasher ...tried all kinds of soap and rinse aid...nothing works...cleaned entire washer out cleaned all filters...


I imagine you've already checked that you're using the correct amount of detergent for the wash programme, and that you're washing the correct quantity of dishes for the wash programme, though if not, try that first!

Is the dishwasher heating the water to the correct temperature? If it's not rinsing at a hot enough temperature, the detergent may leave a residue. In that case, your dishes would probably also be less than entirely clean; they could be slightly greasy when removed from the machine.

Another possibility is that insufficient water is supplied to the dishwasher, so it might be worth checking the tap that lets water through the hose and into the machine. Does the tap turn on fully? Does it turn off properly?

The other thing that might be worth trying is an empty wash: put the machine through a wash programme WITH detergent but WITHOUT dishes, at the programme with the highest temperature. Is all the soap scum washed away? Or is there still a residue inside the machine? If the empty wash works, you probably need to give your machine a maintenance wash once a month or so. This is often the case if you usually wash your dishes a few at a time on a short programme.

I hope some of that helps. Good luck!

I am a builder. I installed my Bosch dishwasher.


Hello Gerry, There are two (2) ways to accomplish this. The easiest is to get some RV anti-freeze (enviromentally safe version) and put that into the bottom of the dishwasher as per the instructions. Then when you return in the Spring, just run an empty rinse cycle to purge the dishwasher of the anti-freeze solution.

The other method will require you to remove (pull out from under the cabinet) the dishwasher and (with power turned off!) disconnect the sump pump boot to drain the residual water out of the unit. In some models, there is a small drain plug that you can remove to drain the water out of the bottom sump (pump) section of the dishwasher.

Good that you thought of this, as many folks forget that leaving water in their appliances in freezing conditions can cause some major headaches from burst pipes, pumps, etc. if they aren't properly winterized for the freezing temperatures they'll get in an unheated building.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

check to make sure you are using the correct detergent & amount for your new washer - depending on the hardness of your water.
Clean the air gap.
Your problem could be one of two things. 1) Hard water. Outside of getting a water softener there really isn't much of a cure for that one. If you are unsure if you have hard water or not, simply take a sample to a local fish store and most of them will test it for free, or call your city's water department and ask. 2) Most likely though it is because you are using too much detergent. How often have you said to yourself, gee there's a lasagna pan in there, better fill up the little dispenser AND give it an extra big 'ole squirt just cuz it's really greasy? Try this, place a coffee cup standing upright on the bottom rack of your empty dishwasher. Fill the cup up to the brim with vinegar and run it through a cycle. This should clean out any residue that is in there currently. Then, the next time you do the dishes use HALF the detergent you normally use. See if that helps. Good luck!

Bottom Dishwasher arm not turning


have you seen whether water is pouring out of the bottom supply tube with the lower arm removed? not 100% sure on this model but some units have a half load switch but that should turn off the top one. there may be a blockage in the lower water supply tubeways.
