SOURCE: Bosch SHV 4303 Dishwasher not draining

I have a Bosch Classixx with what sounds the same problem.It would not drain properly and hummed even when the front door was opened.After a couple of days it ponged a bit.This is what I did.Sypnoned off yukky water with a short length of hose (fill pipe with water from tap don't **** on it!!).Cleaned filter under cutlery tray at bottom.Then put a TEASPOON of bleach if on main drainage or dishwasher cleaner if septic tank.Ran on a hot wash and see if it sorted problem-it didn't but did clean system.
Syphoned off again -take care.Isolated electric and water supply.-Should do that first perhaps Pulled out from under counter undid drain hose at sink end and water at machine end.I then put machine on side and undid bottom silver plate.Note position of polystyrene float switch cover.I then followed drain hose to drain pump and undid it by twisting it like a bayonet light bulb undoing clip levering with screwdriver (not for feint hearted as easy to break) -I then checked little impeller for foreign object-found none so pulled off pump housing by rubber hose to bigger pump thing next to it and found small bit of plastic put it back together and hey presto problem sorted-I was told it might take two hours for the expert to do it once on his workhop bench-it took me about 30 mins plus a bit of head scratching and a yank and push or two which could have been rather expensive -I was lucky!

SOURCE: bosch dishwasher SHX46 won't fill with water

My model is actually a SHX46 but I was able to piece together some advice off of this site. This is what I did. I removed the toe plate and then I soaked up all the water that I could out of the white pan at the bottom. Then I unhooked the water supply line so that I could pull the dishwasher out. Once I got it out, I tipped it forward to drain out the rest of the water. I then unhooked the drain line that was connected to the disposal and cleaned it out with a "Snake line" I then hooked everything back up and it worked. Thanks so much for this website, I know it saved me a ton of $$$$$$$$$.

SOURCE: Drain was clogged and the dishwasher overflowed.

Probably the aquastop (if you have one). We have a similar problem after our owerflow. The dishwasher is starting and running through the programs but no water is coming.

Our dishwasher won't drain completely. I ran it through a regular cycle but it was left with water in the bottom.


Have you tried canceling the cycle? To cancel, turn the on/off switch to on, then press and hold for three seconds the two buttons labeled "Cancel Drain". Keep the door closed for the next minute so that the dishwasher can complete the cycle. During this time the pump will remove any water from the washer. Also you will notice that Bosch dishwashers always leave a little water in the system to keep the seals from drying out and going bad.
Hope this helps

My Bosch dishwasher is driving me crazy! When it finishes a wash cycle it beeps twice every 10 minutes until the door is opened. We can't run the dishwasher at night after dinner unless we're SURE we...


Hello there,

It would help to know the model number of the dishwasher, but on many Bosch dishwashers, you can switch the cycle cycle completion signal off as follows:

1. While holding the right-hand CANCEL/DRAIN button, also press and hold the ON/OFF button
2. When the LED above the CANCEL/DRAIN button illuminates and the beeping starts, release both buttons
3. Press the right CANCEL/DRAIN button repeatedly until the beeping tone is at the desired volume, i.e. silent!
4. Press the "ON/OFF" button again to set the volume.

On models with the wash cycle buttons on the top edge of the door, the CANCEL/DRAIN buttons aren't always explicitly labelled CANCEL/DRAIN. These buttons are also labelled RESET on some models.

On models with 3 and 4 wash cycle buttons, the right CANCEL/DRAIN button is the third button when reading from left to right. On models with 5 wash cycle buttons, the right CANCEL/DRAIN button is the fourth button when reading from left to right.

Please try the above then let me know if you need further assistance. Please state the model number or series (i.e. Integra) of your washer if/when replying.

Hope this helps.

BElectric

I have a Bosch SHX46A05UC/33 5-cycle dishwasher whose labels on the cycle buttons have also worn away. While the Macmarkus post was helpful b/c I have some of the same buttons, can you tell me the labels...


Hi,

Some SHX46A washers have 4 cycles and others have 5 cycles.

I'm fairly sure your model has the hidden buttons on the top of the door and you stated you have five-cycle buttons, in which case they will be as follows.

1. Top Rack only cycle or Sanitize
2. Power Scrub Plus
3. Regular Wash
4. Delicate Wash
5. Rinse and Hold.

These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down "Power Scrub Plus" and "Delicate" at the same time to cancel a cycle and drain the water out.

If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration (from left to right) will be:

1. Power Scrub Plus
2. Regular Wash
3. Delicate Wash
4. Rinse and Hold.

I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.

Regards,
BElectric

MY DISHWASH WILL NOT DRAIN COMPLETELY. I HAVE USE THE RESET BUTTONS MANY TIMES... THERE IS STILL ABOUT A CUP OF WATER LET..? WHAT IS WRONG. MODEL SHE45M06UC/50 THANK YOU


Since the drain pump will pump the water out using the "cancel/drain" button, if it did not work then your problem is likely to be in the drain hose system or the garbage disposal downstream from the drain pump. Check for kinks in clogs in the drain hose. Grease can build up in the portion of the drain hose just before it attaches to the garbage disposal.

Bosch dishwasher shx55m with bottom tub full of water


The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.
