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.

    Fantastic. Thanks for such a quick reply. I will give it a go tomorrow (rushing out now) and let you know.

    After the dishes were cleaned we noticed the dishwasher was filling up with water even though its off and the door is open. We pressed rinse and hold to drain and it worked. Now we're ready to start the wash and it just hums and no water enters the washer.

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

Have you checked the pump and filter are clear? Remove kickplate plinth panel to expose pump. Drain off excess water via small black hose. Check the hoses are clear, particularly if it is connected under the sink, via a spigot connection. If the machine has good motor action, but not spinning effectively, it will more than likely be a drainage problem.

What does a thermometer symbol with up arrow mean on an shx68


Hello Jsg5,

That symbol means that the dishwasher is heating the water, bringing it up to the required temperature to properly sanitize your dishes.

This symbol can appear during the wash and rinse cycles. It is nothing to worry about. Most dishwasher will heat up the wash and rinse water, it's just that Bosch decided to add an indicator, so users would know that any delay in the wash/rinse cycle, is a result of getting the water up to the proper temperature (typically around 140 degrees F)

Even if you've got your hot water heater or hot water supply set to a very low temperature, the dishwasher will use the built-in heating element (the drying element in the bottom of the dishwasher) to heat the water.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Should I buy a Bosch?


Hi,
In my opinion, these do not live up to the Bosch name. They seem to come up on our radar here with "unusual" problems, and a lot of the questions posted go unanswered.
I replaced a beautiful stainless steel Kitchen Aid, after replacing the motor/impeller assembly because it was noisy, and the new one failed also. I bought a Samsung, and I like it. There a re several schools of thought about dishwashers, neither of them are very good, but here goes: One friend buys the brand name cheaper models. One buys only the higher end "best" types.
My best advice is to buy a brand with a high degree of reliability, and stay in the mid price range. The reason I say this is that the middle price range units generally have the better components of their "flagship" models, but don't have as many cycle choices, rack choices, etc.
GE, Whirlpool, (Samsung) are good brands. Frigidare is in there, too. I will never have another Kitchen Aid or a Maytag. I found them to be overpriced and unreliable, but this is just my opinion.

Best regards, --W/D--

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

Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water


your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

Hello Ramona Doug,
Try disconnecting power from your dishwasher for a few minutes to clear the memory and then reapply power again. Start a wash cycle without dishes on the hottest water setting and after a few minutes.. pause the wash and add a few cups of white vinegar to the wash water.,. that will help break up deposits in the system.. See if that gets you going properly.

Got much noisier over time


Hello Hunting2000 the noise could be several things. If you heard what is water hitting against the inner door, try aranging the dishes so that the water is hitting the dishes and not the door. I assume however this isn't the noise you are talking about. Sometimes over time the wash arms themselves will start to make noise. This is from wear. Yes less than a year sounds like a short time. This could have been there from the start. I would call Bosch Customer Support and see if they will pay for a 2nd opion. This well could be the wash arms causing this. Espically the top one not sealing proper and allowing water to hit the front. Hope this helps.
