Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU66C02 / SHU66C06 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Our dishwasher seems to be stuck in drain mode. My daughter put the wrong kind of soap in it. She accidently put Regular dish washing soap in rather than machine dish washing soap. We've got all the suds out. Seems to drain water just fine. However we cant seem to get it to add water. Does the soap have anything to do with it? Anything I can do from my end? Please Advise. Thanks

I accidently put dishwashing liquid soap in the dispenser. Now the water from the bottom of the dishwasher will not fully drain. I checked the filters, those are clean. Please help and Thank you.


In a small bowl, wash your hands in block soap. Tip the water into the dishwasher and it will kill the foam and bubbles.

If there are no bubbles in there, pull the machine out and undo the clips on the drain hose. Drain the machine into bucket or a deep dish. This should reset the water level switch.

The dishwasher is not draining properly and there seems to be lots of suds although the detergent packet was not used during the normal washing cycle.


If your dishwasher is connected to a garbage disposal and not used frequently and you
hand wash dishes on the disposal side, the soap that is used for hand washing dishes
accumulates in the dishwasher when you pull the stopper. This soap sudses excessively in
the dishwasher when it is run. This happens quite frequently in the apartments I service.
I have to put in several pans of water and turn the timer till it pumps out several times.

Also, make sure the disposal is working properly or the dishwasher will not drain and dish
water will back up into the dishwasher. There is usually a 5/16 allen socket to free
the disposal located under it in the very center of the disposal as well as a small red sqare
reset button once the unit is freed up. Make sure switch is off at wall before attempting
service.
hope this helps.

Extra suds due to liquid soap in the machine overflowing. How do I drain it?


This is strange. Are you using an electric dishwasher liquid soap, OR are you using a dish soap that you manually use to wash dishes?
REGULAR dish soap liquid that is not specifically made for dishwashers creates a foamy suds with lots of bubbles that will in fact bubble out of your dishwasher. on the other hand. Electric Dishwasher detergent will NOT create foamy suds with lots of bubbles.
Switch your soap. The next cycle any residue suds or soap will be gone as long as you use the proper liquid detergent. I would also recommend using a rinse agent which further helps break down and rinse off residue.

Will not clear soap from machine, have to rinse multiple times


are you using regular dish-washing detergent....not liquid dish detergent like dawn....dawn and the like suds up tremendously....regular detergent is manufactured so it will not suds up.

does it drain completely? sometimes a blocked drain will keep enough soapy water in the basin that when the rinse cycle comes on it essentially throws soapy water back on the clean dishes.

hope this helps

Danby Dishwasher stuck in drain cycle after wrong soap use


There might be water in the overflow sensor. I unloaded the dishwasher and lifted the front so the dishwasher rested on its back. There's a narrow gray tube that runs down from the bottom right of the door. The tube runs into a white piece of plastic with some wires coming out of it. There is a rubber plug that covers a nipple on the plastic. Pull the rubber plug off. Mine was quite tight. Tip the dishwasher back onto its casters to drain the water from the overflow. Check to see if the dishwasher functions normally, then put the rubber plug back on.

Put wrong soap in the SmatDispense container...


If you run it as is you will have a kitchen full of soapy water.
Take a pot or pan. Fill it with COLD water. Our it into the DW. Fillit to the regular water level, about 1 inch below the bottom rim.
Set the DW to a pump out setting and drain it.
You will have to repeat this several times to clear the soap out.
COLD water pump out. Cold water pump out etc.
Do not use HOT water. You will get instant suds and lots of them.

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.
