Installing new heating element in Bosch dishwasher

My Bosch dishwasher SHU5316UC/U12, installed 3/4/03, had the heating water element go out. I ordered another one from Bosch, but it did not come with installation instructions. The only installation instructions the company sent me were how to install the dishwasher under the counter. I took the dishwasher out, turned it over, looked for an obvious kick plate removal or something. But not wanting to break anything, do you have any hints on how to remove and install a heater in this unit?

    This heater looks like a modular unit. Are you sure it can not be installed by anyone except a $95 per hour Bosch technician?

    Ok, I'll call a service technician.

In order to replace te heater in that unit, it must be remove from cabinet, and taken apart, it is very labor intensive, in order to access the heater, youll need to remove eh lower plastic pan from D/W. in order to get that removed, hte side panels need to come off.Past that its not a very technical, you have the heater in hand so you know what your looking for. problem is its like Part number 1 when manufacturing, , so youll need to peel back the layers till you get there, remembering where it all goes when you need to reassemble.im in the field, dont not service bosch on a regular basis, but last heater change i did took close to 3 hours.as far a pictorial i know there is a service manual (80pgs)for this d/w, i was unable to find it to post a link for you.I would honestly consider perhaps calling a servicer for this depending on your comfort level.

this is common, a lot of bosch dishwashers had circuit board recalls. call bosch to see if yours is one. also if you get the cicuit board replaced, ensure that it is programed correctly when it is installed. main reason dishwasher extent time is to heat to a certain temp. bosch will then average out previous cycles and adjust its times. sounds like your not heating.

Dishwasher not drying - Bosch Integra SHU9952


Bosch generally drys through evaporation from hot water rinse. There is a common circuit board issue where a cold solder joint on the heater relay pops.The water does not heat sufficient to evaporate any longer. Consult your manual for self diagnosing trouble shooting codes or go to appliance aid.com.
If the board connection is the issue I have repaired several, however Bosch recommends replacement only and sometimes supplies the parts free.
