My Bosch Exxcel has a leak, allegedly between the motor and pump - but I can't get to it because the one-piece plastic base doesn't come off. The side panels and top come off easy enough but I have run out of screws to undo, the thing doesn't come apart. I'm reluctant to take off the spring loaded door, if I have to how do I tension the springs again ? Is there a clever way to pull it apart just enough to get at the motor and pump ?
It will come apart.Sometimes the whole front panelcomes off them with the door attached.
every thing is put together in a certain order.
You can get a front loader manual from your local libuary.Take your pump cover off and start looking for screws.
You must locate your water leak first.
If its a tub leak you will need to change a rubber seal.
Dont be fighten to ask for advice,go to your local Bosch parts shop and tell them your w/m has a leak in a certain place and you need a part and ask for advice.These people are the experts. PS I like the Bosch, Stick with it and keep it simp-le

The reason only the pump runs anytime its powered up is because the flood detector has detected water in the base of the dishwasher and until that water is gone only the pump will run.That flood detector is (when looking at it from the front) is in the left front corner,its a styrofoam disc with a rod in the center of it and has floated up activating the flood switch on the letf side wall where the water enters the tub (can be seen on the left side with side panel removed) if thier is no water in the base frame perhaps some foreign object has wedged itself under the sytrofoam disc holding it up. Until the water is out of the base frame only the pump will run as long as the flood switch is tripped.
Possible things that will make water be in the base frame are, oversuds from too much detergent a leak of any component or hose a defective water level switch allowing it to overfill
I am not sure about this model but most models run a drain cycle for a set period at the start of a wash cycle and then move on to normal filling and cycle of machine provided the various switches are at the low level it will carry on to its set cycle,is the apartment or flood switch ok?
the cleaning section is mostly from the circulation pump. is the pump is not working it has to be replaced .go to sears partsdirect.com and check out part first,. this will let you know the prices to fix or replace. then call ten repair person and find the cost to change the circulation pump.
the unit is going into drain mode. check your hose for leaks. when water leks in the base of the unit the float switch is activated and the unit will stay in drain mode until the water is removed. check float by removing side panel and look into bottom base for water.
there is a leak . when the unit stays in drain mode that means there is water at the bottom of the base. The float switch stays in drain mode untill the water is removed. you must take off the side panel to remove the water,let me know what happens.:)
I know this sounds too simple, but on My dishwasher which is an SHX46b model, the plastic supply arm that comes out of the pump and supplies the upper arm popped out of it's correct position at the base. It is held in place by two dinky nibs. I just popped it back in and voila, pressure was back and arms were spinning.
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.
Try tilting the machine back 45 degrees for one minute 7 then try one of the programmes. Serousely outr Bosch diswasher was firstly not draining water then not taking in water & another forum suggested this odd manouvre & all is fine now
anti flood device has been activated,
this means you have water in the base of appliance. most likely a leak, or if you have been using 3 in 1 tablets, and rinse aid this will over foam appliance and foams leaks into base..
try tipping d/w back to let water out of base..then try d/w again... if anti flood activates again...call an engineer..
ps check big nut that secures salt container to base of d/w, it can come loose which will cause water to leak into base
