Question about Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

Open Question

Bosch shu5316uc dishwasher runs (almost) forever

Cool water is the problem. Trying to find the solution, since my regular hot water is 130 degrees or more. Inside the dishwasher the water is only about 90 degrees, and gets cooler with time. I expect that it is either the "brain" or the heater. Is there any history on which go bad? Also, where are the parts inside the unit, and are they easy to replace?
Thanks for any and all help!

SOURCE: water not going in

This is a little late for the OP. But, I had the same problem over Thanksgiving of 2008. I searched online and saw that other people had the same problem, but there were no solutions posted. So, I paid $130 for a service tech to come fix the problem - maybe this will save you some time and money.

The solution was simple...pour boiling water (I boiled about a half gallon of water in a cooking pot) straight into the pump where the water sprays out of. You don't have to pull your dishwasher out and no tools are needed. Just open the door, pull out the lower roller tray, remove the bottom spray fin (just pull straight up), and pour the boiling water straight into the hole where the bottom spray fin was attached to. Next, put everything back in place, push the Power switch on, select a wash mode, and close the door. The dishwasher should start spraying water inside as usual.

The service tech told me that there are only two pumps in this dishwasher...one to pump the water in (the one that had the problem) and one to pump the water out. When you don't use the dishwasher frequently, the seal in the wash pump seizes up (sticks together). You can hear the motor humming, but the pump isn't able to send the water up into the spray fins. By pouring boiling water into the pump, it helps to break that stickiness and allows the pump to start sending water up into the spray fins. The solution is to run your dishwasher at least once a week. Even if you don't have much to wash, run a rinse cycle to let all the parts move and stay loose.

One other tip the tech told me is to pour a cup of white vinegar into the pump when you go away on vacation and the dishwasher won't be used for a week or more. This should keep the seals from sticking together. I haven't tried this yet.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher: won't fill with water

The flood switch is tripped. This is located under the unit. Unplug or flip the breaker to the dishwasher, take off the black kick plate under the door, 2 screws, and you will see the white plastic "pan". The flood switch is located where you can't really see it but it is on the left hand side wall and is made of styrofoam. The best thing to do is to put some rags in the pan, this is not easy because there is little room to put them, and soak-up the water that has filled the pan. Eventually you will get enough water out that the float will deactivate the switch. What you hear "running" when you turn it on is actually the drain pump, it get activated when the flood switch is tripped.

SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher Model SHU5316UC-06 -- what does

2H is not exactly an "error code", but it does indicate a problem. It means that the machine exceded its wash time by more than 2 hours. This is usualy caused by a failure of the heater, most often caused by a failure of the controll. Remove the control from the door, remove the plastic housing from the control, and check for a bad solder joint on the heater relay.
If you find a bad solder joint, REPLACE the controll.
Or call a qualified service person.

NOTE: The SHU53A dish washer with serial numbers from FD8205 to FD8507 are included in a factory recall. If your dishwasher is one of these contact BSH @ 1-800-586-9226 24/7.

Tip

Dishwasher Water Temperatures


No matter what detergent you use, the "pills", powder, or gels, they are meant to activate PROPERLY, key word PROPERLY, at a minimum of 120 degrees Fahrenheit in a dishwasher. I recommend ALWAYS using the "high temp wash, boost, etc" on ANY cycle in order to keep the water HOT! Always run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher! The unit is tied in to the hot water line under the kitchen sink and requires very little water to fill--by the time the hot water finally reaches the dishwasher, chances are it'll be running on cold or tepid water--the detergent won't dissolve or activate the way it's supposed to. Not only that, in between fills during the cycle, especially in winter, the water will cool down in the pipes too much. Normally, the water heating selection will maintain water temps in the 130-150 degree range! If someone has been sick in the house, turn on the SANI RINSE if your unit has it! This won't stop--but it'll help prevent cross contamination--people getting sick from the dishes--this setting normally kicks the water temp up to 190 degrees during the rinse cycle.

Even after ensuring that really hot water is coming from the faucet and placing the unit on the Delicate/Econo setting we consistently get a 2 HR reading. We have also had it where the unit gets stuck on...


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.

When the washer gets to 1 in the cycle, it doesn't stop washing.


try running the test cycle or running delicate economy in that cycle it gets up to 150 degrees in the very first cycle let it run 15 or 20 min see if the water is screaming hot it is not and Luke warm it is not heating it is most likely a control board heaters very rarely go out

What is the amount of time for a regular wash? Time on the plus wash?


a regular wash should take about an hour and a half. plus wash would be longer only because it heats the wash temp hotter.
wash temp is generally around 140 degrees
and your rinse is around 161 degrees.

your flow through heat assembly heats the water at 2 degrees a minute. so it can take anywhere from and hour and a half to two hours for a full cycle.
try turning your sink on hot water until you feel hot water coming out then start the dishwasher so it doesnt have to heat cold water up to those temps. it should run a little shorter.

I have a Bosch SHV55M03GB dishwasher which does not heat the water. The programme cycle also sticks at the last minute. Any ideas, heater element or control panel? Thanks.


If cycle proceed normally after waiting for a while, then the control is probably OK. It stands by a while because it does not read correct temperature before proceeding.

If the appliance is connected to both hot and cold water, open more the hot water faucet.

If the water is not heating at all, check heating element for continuity, using a tester.

If water is heating regularly, but cycle is still slow, check thermic sensor.

Here are more suggestions from Repairclinic:

The cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
