Question about Dishwashers
SOURCE: Bosch SHU4300 Water Fill Issue.
Similar problem for us turned out to be water accumulating in the tray which set off the float switch. I vacuumed the water out and function returned to normal. However, we are now facing a repairman's assertion the clay in our well clogged the water inlet systems necessitating $285 in repair parts and labor.

Turn off the power source to the garbage disposal. Take the drain hose from the dishwasher off the connector going to the disposal (if connected). Insert a flat blade screwdriver in the drain hose fitting and tap a few times with a hammer. The plastic plug will pop off inside the garbage disposal. Reach inside from the top of the disposal to retrieve the plastic plug. Sometimes you have to use a little force to tap the plug out. Hope this helps you.

There should be an overload button somewhere on the bottom of the disposal motor. This is to prevent the motor from trying to run if the chopping blades are jammed, otherwise the motor would burn up.
First, try to move the blades with something like a broom handle. Using a flashlight you should be able to see the blades. there's probably three of them. try to make sure each one can move even a little bit.
Next, with the disposal switch in the off position, find the overload button and push it in, Then turn on the disposal switch and see if it runs. If the overload button trips off again, repeat the above steps until the blades can turn.
Let me know how this goes. Loringh

Check flap valve and solenoid-Check for hose kinks or food clogs-Check pump impeller for damage-Check-timer Check the (check-valve flapper) some models have a check valve located where the drain hose attaches to the dishwasher.If you just installed an garbage disposal check the knock-out plug at the connection.Check that the pump hasnt gotton stuck due to lack of use or gunk in the pump. 3 things 1-You can remove the lower kick panel and turn the fan blade on the motor until it turns freely 2- Boil a big pot of water and pour it into the tub part let it stand for 15 to 20 min then try the dishwasher 3- Or my (FAV) duct tape your shop-vac to the waste hose and try to blow or **** out the stoppage. Rice is a big problem and pasta for dishwashers and thanks for the advice on my car I will try the method,and sorry about the comment
