Dirty smelly water is in the bottom of the dishwasher. Is there a problem with the disposal/dishwasher connection?


Hi,

Maybe.... Check the hose to the disposal...


Here is a tip that I wrote that will help you with your dishwasher not draining problem...

Dishwasher Problems - Water will not drain out

Tip

Dishwasher Cleaning


If you have hard water, you may experience stains on dishes and scale forming on your dishwasher heating element.

To clean it up and improve performance, there is a product called "Dishwasher Magic" that descales the machine.

Another trick, particularly if you can't find Dishwasher Magic, is to use white vinegar.

Run the machine empty with about two cups of white vinegar added to the bottom. Then run it again empty to remove the odor of the vinegar.

If you have dishes that have a built up film (you notice this particularly on clear glass) you can soak it in vinegar for ten minutes or so and then rinse it off with tap water. For stubborn stains you may want to rub with a paper towel.

The best way to avoid these problems is to use rinse agent in your dishwasher, and to use the Dishwasher Magic once every month.

UPDATE: A low cost alternative to this product is to simply use unsweetened kids soft drink mix....aka KoolAid. It's got lots of citric acid, just like the Dishwasher magic. To get similar results, you need to use two large packages or four to six of the small one quart size pouches. IMPORTANT: Don't put any sugar in it, just add the powder to the bottom of the dishwasher and run a cycle.

Moved into home and dishwasher runs threw the cycles...does not spray water on dishes water sitting in the bottom?? Something blocked or not connected?


check if there is water at the bottom of tub when it's going through the cycle. If there isn't, i'd suspect a burnt out water valve

Quiet Series 200: The water is not draining out.


6 to 7 years is about right without put out major repair costs. Unfortunately salesmanship is the biggest racket going. I'd scrap it or sell it for parts. Sorry

F&P double drawer (DD603) won't empty


Ok you need to remove the motor rotor it's under the spray arm and comes out like a light bulb from the top draw and check for anyting stuck under it or any damage done to it. Try swapping it with the one out of the bottome drawer and see if that works. When you first start the washer does it drain all the water?? if still no luck try swapping the motor contoller modules (computer board) from the top drawer to the bottom drawer and retry both drawers ,if the fault moves drawers with the part, then that part is faulty cheers

Bosch dishwasher S10R1B: Water not pumped out


Normally it is the impeller which is stuck. Take out the dishes and the filters and empty it for water by hand. Yes it is a dirty job. Then at the bottom there is an opening in the steel where the water is collected. Empty this too. At the bottom left there is a torx20 screw that keeps the cover for the impeller. remove the cover and check that the impeller can move. The may be object stuck
You canalso force the safety mechanism in the door with a screwdriver and try to see if the impeller moves when it is supposed to empty water.
My problem is that I did all this but it still does not move. It may be the impeller motor which is broken. To replace that one is not easy.

Water doesn't empty out after wash.


Does the waster water line leading from the dishwasher to the garbage disposal exit the dishwasher upward to the bottom of the cabinet top, before going downward to the disposal? The hose cannot be laying horizontal or on the floor, and at some point, must loop at least 6 inches higher than the dishwasher.

Check that there are no blockages on inlet screens to the pump. Look closely, and don't give up until you can see the pump impeller or the end of it.

Bosch wont


Faulty inlet valve or water in the bottom tray which will activate the float swich and pump out any water. See that this moves up and down freely. Turn electrics off first.
