Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU66C05 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My dishwasher does not fill

Hello, Just last night my Bosch dishwasher decided to let me down. It has been the best machine for the last four years; washes perfectly and quietly. Lat night I went out and left it doing the dishes for me as I always do. When I got home the electronic timer was sitting on 1 minute, there was no water in the machine, the soap block was undissolved in the bottom of the machine, and the motor was still humming. I turned it off at the wall, waited a while, then turned it back on hoping to reset the timer. It started at 38 instead of 88 and no water pumped in. I presumed from this that it is the solanoid (or fill valve) which is actually inline, right on the faucet, instead of in the machine like all the older machines I have had. Unfortunately it is a very expensive assembly and I do not want to order one in just to find it does not fix the problem. I wonder if anyone else has had the same problem, and if so, what they did to fix it. Or if anyone has any suggestions as to what else might be the problem.

Re: My dishwasher does not fill

Suspect it has not drained fully hence will not fill. humming noise may be a foreign object stuck in the pump impellor. take pump out and check impellor turns freely

I have a Bosch dishwasher model #SHU53A05UC/14. the control unit blew up, like roman candle, the 4th of july, the sparks the smoke, etc, is it still worth fixing? it's a 2002 or early model.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I'd suggest before proceeding too far or deciding anything you contact Bosch or at least check out the link below.

**Bosch issued a recall concerning control board issue a couple of years ago and yours definitely falls into the models involved though the serial number will be the deciding factor...still worth looking into.**

Thanks for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided here today and good luck.

You need a new microprocessor. Same thing happened to me. Normal cycle runs down to one minute and stops there, running, for maybe another hour or more. Then, when it finally ends, the dishes are not clean or dry. Get the microprocessor replaced. It is Chinese junk. It is an easy fix, but the replacement will last only four or five years.

Mold grows on dishes in bosch dishwasher

Put a bowl filled with 2 cups of clorox on the lower rack and run a wash cycle (nothing else in the machine) this will kill the mold spores in the machine, and clear the smell.

Bosch SHU4312 won't finish cycle, won't drain.

The control board on these units is prone to a cold solder joint cracking. I have read that Bosch recommends replacement and will supply the board, not covering labor. I repaired mine prior and have done one for a friend as well. Has lasted several years and counting
The symptom is constant cycling without ticking down the last few minutes

No water coming into machine. Programme not running because the machine is still trying to fill. If I add water the machine does drain. Was cleaned with a good dishwasher cleaner only last week. Nothing to...

Turns out that the dishwasher had a leak in the bottom. No water could be seen leaking out because Bosch machines have a cut-off valve that means if a tray in the bottom of the machine fills up with water, the float valve doesn't allow anymore water into the machine. we worked this out after we tipped the machine slightly, water ran out, when we put it back down and started it the inlet valve worked until the bottom had filled with water again.

New machine for us! However, not a critism of Bosch. We use our machine at least two or three times a day and have done for the last 5 years.

Bosch SHU5302UC/U06 dishwasher starts at 2H and eventually starts but continues for a long time at 1 without rinsing the dishes.

I had the same problem a few years ago and the tech replaced the control panel. No problems until....last night. Now a different problem.
