How to replace junction box in Bosch dishwasher.

Hi All,
Mine is a brand new Bosch dishwasher. While installing it, I might have over tightened it and as a result damaged junction box. Is there a way to replace this.

This is generally because of a stuck diverter solenoid. The water goes to the pump and then is either sent to the wash arms or the drain. Also, check the drain.

It doesn't work at all If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

Why does voltage at circuit breaker read 120V and less than one volt at dishwasher junction box?


Say, do you want to play with this?
Could you disconnect the wires at the dishwasher junction box, (remembering exactly where they go) and find an extension cord you could plug in somewhere else to get electricity to the junction box that way? Obviously, you should need to have bare wires to hook to the junction box, so you might be sacrificing an old extension cord, or you might be using romex wire, or something like separate wires. Just be sure you know what you are doing so you don't get ZAPPED. God bless your efforts.

Hi gwmkjm,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: YOUR BOSCH DISHWASHER MODEL #SHU43C06UC/17 WILL NOT START. NONE OF THE LIGHTS TURN ON AS IF THERE IS NO POWER GETTING TO IT. YOU HAVE CHECKED THE POWER CORD AND THE BREAKER BOX AND EVERYTHING IS O.K., BUT YOU STILL CAN NOT GET IT TO TURN ON. AT ONE TIME THE LED LIGHT LIT UP FOR A BRIEF SECOND, BUT NEVER AGAIN. ANY OTHER SUGGESTION?

Yes. 9 times out of 10 it's a loose or broken wire in the d/w junction box under the d/w behind the kick plate on the right. Make sure to turn off the electric before you expose the wirenuts. Remove them and install new.

My Bosch SHU9915UC dishwasher will not power on. Any advice would be much appreciated?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.




Based on your post " My Bosch SHU9915UC dishwasher will not power on " it may just be a loose/burnt connection in the dishwasher junction box or a severed wire in the door panel.

** I would start by first shutting off the breaker...safety first**

Then removing the kick plate ( access panel at the bottom )...

...and checking the wiring at the junction box for the dishwasher 120vac supply line.

Remove the murret's and visually inspect the wire for "resistance burn" and strip the wires back and install new fastener's if necessary to repair.

i.e.

60f6a31.jpg

This is actually quite common to find a wire connector come loose due to improper fastening and once the unit is in use for a while the connections heat & cool, become loose from normal operating vibrations and burn up from all the added heat caused by "resistance".

Typically this will manifest in just the manner you've described.

If it looks OK there I'd remove the outer door panel ( careful the edges are sharp ) via the six #20 torx head screws...

macmarkus_168.jpg


...check for a severed wire at the pivot point in the door, typically covered in a plastic casing as shown here..
.

macmarkus_169.jpg

The small plastic blocks which may be present in the bottom corners of the door panel, i.e.

macmarkus_170.jpg
...they can be a pain to re-install, but they do only go in one way, however it is ok to leave them out...their only purpose is to strengthen the structure.

Let me know what you find and I'll try to assist you further if necessary. Thank you for choosing FixYa today for your inquiry.

Macmarkus :)

My bosch shu43c02uc wont work at all and i think i need to reset it, how would you reset it and can you think of anything else that will help with the problem?


Hello

Welcome to Fixya.

Based on your post,"my bosch shu43c02uc wont work at all..."

This is the most common reason for these Bosch dishwashers not having power.

I would start by first shutting off the breaker. Then removing the kick plate ( access panel at the bottom ) and checking the wiring at the junction box for the dishwasher 120vac supply line.

Remove the murret's and visually inspect the wire for "resistance burn" and strip the wires back and install new fastener's if necessary to repair.

My Bosch Dishwasher will not power up


Hi, Welcome to FixYa.

I would start by first shutting off the breaker.

You mentioned you replaced the "receptacles", I'm not sure if you are referring to the junction box but...I would start by removing the kick plate ( access panel at the bottom ) and checking the wiring at the junction box for the dishwasher 120vac supply line.

This is actually quite common to find a wire murret/connector come loose due to improper fastening and once the unit is in use for a while the connections heat & cool, become loose from normal operating vibrations and burn up from all the added heat caused by "resistance".

The end result is no power to the controls. Check it out and post back what you find.

Thanks for visiting "fixya" and please take a moment to rate the solution/suggestion provided here for you.

Good luck.

No power to the dishwasher. Is there an internal circut braker


Not really...I have seen installations done poorly where the wire nuts in the junction box were loose. Often the box is rather small and the installer may not do a good job.

Should I buy a Bosch?


Hi,
In my opinion, these do not live up to the Bosch name. They seem to come up on our radar here with "unusual" problems, and a lot of the questions posted go unanswered.
I replaced a beautiful stainless steel Kitchen Aid, after replacing the motor/impeller assembly because it was noisy, and the new one failed also. I bought a Samsung, and I like it. There a re several schools of thought about dishwashers, neither of them are very good, but here goes: One friend buys the brand name cheaper models. One buys only the higher end "best" types.
My best advice is to buy a brand with a high degree of reliability, and stay in the mid price range. The reason I say this is that the middle price range units generally have the better components of their "flagship" models, but don't have as many cycle choices, rack choices, etc.
GE, Whirlpool, (Samsung) are good brands. Frigidare is in there, too. I will never have another Kitchen Aid or a Maytag. I found them to be overpriced and unreliable, but this is just my opinion.

Best regards, --W/D--

you may have to turn off power at main box, and check wires at bottom of machine and any other junction box , from dishwasher to main power box. pull on wires to see if they will come apart.
