How do I get the drain pump out? I have released the plastic tabs holding it in, and pulled onit. It comes half-way out, but not much further. Am I just not applying enough strentgh or does it turn somehow.
My sense is the impeller felt on the inside of the bottom of the basis should pull out somehow witht he pump. Am I wrong? Don't want to break this.
First you have to unbolted the base part from the tank(4 bolt on the bottom part)....then you gonna be abble to flip the tank whit the door forward and the base part gonna stay on the ground ,showing you all the component you want to get to and have the space to work your way out .. ....after the pump and the tubulure part connect togetter by turning and pulling all that whit the impeller and the motor assembly staying togetter but release from the tubulure drain parts ....and thats it ! you have your motor pump in your hand and you can now proceed to a test whit 120 volt to see if its realy the pump that grounded ...hope this is gonna help you ! mikey mecano

Can you provide a model number of your Bosch dishwasher ?
Depending on the model ( i.e. SHU, SHV, SHE, SHX followed by several caricatures etc. ) it can be several possibilities so I`ll hold off generalizing and instead try and speak specific about your model.

It doesnt take much to stop a drain motor from rotating. If you dont know the bosch washer, you will find it almost impossible to get into it One thing, if the door is opened, the bottom tray removed then the sieves untill no loose items are left, you will notice a little piece of plastic that can be pulled out to allow you access to your drain pump impellar. Remove the obstruction and turn with your finger. Does it turn easily.? if so reassemble and try again.(note if you dont replace the plastic part back properly, the pump will run but not pump correctly.)
sounds like a drain pump ... you may have a damaged drain pump or something stuck in it..
turn off the power the the dishwasher...
.remove toe panel and you can see the drain pump on the left ..you can remove plastic hose on the left to drain the dishwasher ...be sure to catch the water will come out ... you can remove drain pump press release tab and turning drain pump ...hope it helps
remove the water and, the burnt plastic that probanly melted on the dish drying heater coil close and, lock the door turn the dishwasher back on and, reset the circuit breaker to see if the motor will run or, is damaged
There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. A sticking impeller indicates that the pump may be failing, but you are welcome to try my guide to help. It is here. Thanks!
OK Bosch Dw fans.........here is the fix if your SHX dishwasher is stuck on the drain cycle. This may save you a couple hundred bucks.......so listen up. There is a tendency for the very small float switch to STICK in the ON position, which will cause the drain motor to continuously run......and DISallow any other function to work. DISCONNECT POWER. Did I mention to disconnect power? Take off the front base cover....2 torx screws. Remove the other 2 torx screws in the metal clips that fasten the top of the DW to the underside of your countertop. NOW...carefull slide your DW out. You may have to disconnect your water and elec supply if you do not have enough slack to pull it out. Once the DW is out of the cabinet, remove the shiny metal cover on the LEFT side by removing a single torx screw. You will now see a small plastic assembly with a red plastic piece that moves up and down as it rides on a small red styrofoam float. This up and down movement engages a small white plastic switch visible with 3 wires coming out of it. You can carefully UNSNAP this switch out of its mount, and pull the 3 wire plug off of it. THere is a small square blue plastic tab that is supposed to easily slide in and out of the switch. If it is stuck IN, you can sometimes tap the switch and the blue tab will pop out, which is what it is supposed to do without tapping it. You can carefully with a knife blade separate the case on this switch and note the way it comes apart. Clean out any micro debris out of the small channels that the blue tab ride up and down in. Then set it in the channel while holding up the small switch tab that rides on it and see if it slides up and down without sticking! I like to take a piece of wax paper and rub in on the channel and blue tap to provide some lube for the switch to slide easily on. Now, put the switch back on and manually move the red plastic assembly up and down while you are watching the blue tab. The tab should ride up and down with the red assy. If not, buy a new switch. Google the # on the switch and order one. If the tab slides up and down, put things together in reverse order and give it a try. Hope it works for you. This should take you an hour give or take. Take the $200 you just saved and have a night out on me. ........so even though these German Appliances have a good name because of past reliability, the american tendency to value engineer them with plastic parts to reduce costs and increase profit.........just cost you an hour of your time. Will we ever learn.? ......if it ain't broke, value engineer it until it only lasts through the warranty period so you can then collect service and parts blood money from your fellow american.
Check the drain pump. First, manually initiate drain by pressing the second and fourth buttons on the keypad at the same time. If it pumps out, disregard the rest. If it doesn't at least hum, check for power at the motor.
Remove lower rack, lower spray arm, and screens in bottom, remove all water inside. Check for debris under pump cover in bottom of sump. The drain pump suction is through the hole on the left.
Behind the toe panel on the left is the drain motor, If no debris was found inside, the drain pump may have failed. Remove outer door panel (you may need to remove the two screws on the sides of the control panel.) Remove the metal panel across the top of the motor area , disconnect hose in front of pump, disconnect wires to pump, press tab at top of pump and rotate clockwise to remove pump. The impeller could be loose on the motor shaft, or the motor windings failed.
remove outer door skin and kick plate at base pump will be on view turn off power look carefully at pump you will see a lever you have to cut away a small section of plastic on lever to be able to push it inwards pump then twists off anticlockwise is a bayonet fitting like a light bulb.
