Question about Bosch Dishwashers
We have Bosch dishwasher SHY66C. Something happened, and now when i chose quick wash, it takes 88 min instead of 38. We tried rebooting it by holding two buttons at the ''cancel drain'' line, but after that it's still 88. Is there another way to reset it back to original time?
SOURCE: I actually don't know what
On a Bosch dw, it has a light sensor to sense soil in the water.. if the control feels that the water going through the sensor is not clean/ or clean it will add or minus time..one thing you can do is make sure that your drain line from dw to sink drain is cleared of debris.. also, make sure you clean the filter at bottom of dw and make sure its reinstall correctly if you haven't already do so.. if your dw finish the cycle and come out clean, then the time on your dw is fine,, but if it don't finish and come out dirty.. then, it could be something other, but don't know til I get the full details on problem.. help this will do it for ya.. good luck.. mike

The issue with your Bosch dishwasher likely lye`s within`the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). This is the purpose of the "1" indicated in the display, a heating problem.
I`d first suggest calling in an authorized bosch servicer, however If you feel capable there`s a way to visually inspect the control. It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. This will be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sit`s at "1" ( because it can`t heat to advance or until canceled ) trying to heat the water.
**Further to this, if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)**
**Please disconnect the power before attempting any service to the dishwasher. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau, to service your machine.**
