Hi..
just had the same problem with dish washer not draining..so before buying a new pump like i did firstly remove the old pump and give it a good check over a new pump cost me £32.90 to do this follow these instructions as i made a few errors but got there in the end.

unplug dishwasher as your gonna get wet...
turn washer onto its back
remove the 2 bronze coloured screws on the side plastic facia ( only 2 screws there 1 each side)
now with abit of force remove the front bottom plastic (it does come off believe me)
after your struggle, remove metal facia (behind the plastic bit in your hands) two screws to undo
carefull not to damage any of the wiring attatched to the metal facia
unclip the wireing remembering how it goes
there are two screws attaching the bottom plastic casing to the pump undo these and again pull down on this to gain access to the outlet pump (not to hard)
twist off the pump no screwing needed the wiring to the pump is two spade connectors the other wires you see are just clipped to the pump housing.
inspect if no damage then maybe a pump is needed, if obstruction then clear and twist back on connect wires
follow the reverse of removal
should take about an hour
cheers
ian

Bosch dishwasher model SMV40T10GB/29. Scrubbing brush flashing on control panel. What does this mean?


I believe that is a no drain error. You can check to see if there are objects in the sump area like glass and food. If the water from the dishwasher can not drain into the air gap the dishwasher will be unable to drain. The sump is the area where your filter sits. You might have a bad pump or a blockage somewhere.

My previously quiet Asko dishwasher now makes a lot of noise during draining cycles


Hello Beverly;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide a model number so I have to advise in general terms.

It sounds like your drain pump is struggling.

Clean your drain and/or drain filter. Wear gloves you may have broken glass or something sharp in your drain.

You garbage disposal line may be plugged.

Or you drain pump may be going bad (But, I do not really think so).

Water not draining


Hello Jerry;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide a model number so I can only advise in general terms.

If your hose has blown, then your pump is working. I suspect your drain hose is plugged up with soap film, broken glass .....

Clean your drain. Use gloves. You may have broken glass in the drain. If you have a filter clean that. Remove your drain hose and flush it.

If you have a dish washer that requires a special detergent, and you are using a less expensive brand, you are looking for trouble.

After you have completed the above, purchase a dishwasher cleaner and run that.

I own a Bosch SHU3036UC not draining properly


HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Bosch dishwasher wont drain. At end of cycle is full of cloudy water.


It is possible if you have broken a glass recently that the piece of glass has made its way to the drain pump impeller. You need to remove bottom basket. Remove the filter strainer clamp by rotating CCW. There may be another round filter under the strainer (depending on model). Then with a torque screwdriver remove one screw which holds the plastic pump cover on. Remove the pump cover and pay close attention to the pump impeller. Does it rotate by finger movement? If not it could be jamed with a piece of broken glass. You must remove any obstruction to allow the impeller to turn. I usually force a paper towel piece (half piece while rotating the impeller by finger to allow the paper towel to bring up any obstruction below the impeller) Reassemble the cover and filters carefully and make sure the final strainer clamp aligns correctly with its marks. This insures nothing will make its way to the impeller in future.
