Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher
Replace the control module got stuck on 1 for hours and then the next time tried to run dishwasher stuck on 2h for very long time and pump ran for over thirty minutes before shut off unit. Water never went to clean mode. Pump malfunction?
I, along with many others online, are experiencing the same problem. The bottom line is the control panel needs to be replaced. Beware, though, that the replacement panel may also be bad as I've seen many reports that they are poorly designed and Bosch isn't doing anything about it.
There are 2 things I'd like to clarify...
1) The display "2H" is an error code which, according to Bosch, indicates service is needed on the unit. The code is different from "2h" (note the lower-case letter h), which is what would display when the delay start button is pushed.
2) The number 1 showing at the "end" of the cycle does NOT mean 1 minute left. It is a 2nd error code indicating the unit has "timed out."
I'm waiting to have my control panel replaced a second time. The first repairman from Sears replaced the control panel with a refurbished one, but the unit still showed 2H. He was about to leave when I told him the problem wasn't fixed. He tried to tell me that the 2H meant the cycle would be longer than 2 hours because my water temperature was too low (it is at 120 degrees, the proper temp per Bosch). He said I needed to increase my water temp or else live with the fact that the dishwasher would take a long time to run through the cycle. I asked him to call Bosch and he said they wouldn't talk to him (he really had an attitude). I asked for a receipt (on which he commented the "dw works fine") and, after he left, I called Sears back to get a "senior" technician out to fix it. They ordered another (new) control panel for me and they'll be out this Friday to (try) to repare the unit. Hoping this time it will work.
