SOURCE: Replacing a drain hose
If you remove the steel left side panel you can see that the drain hose only extends a short way into the machine. Where the hose enters the pan is a white clip that has a small square hole this clip can either be removed by pushing on it from the inside or prying the small square hole with a screwdriver. the drain hose is held in place by a black triangular clip on the plastic drain loop simply pull the clip off and slide the drain hose down then pull it out from the back of the machine.

Hello, I have just installed a similar model, and took the side panel off to see how it was put together ;)
The drain hose goes in the back of the dishwasher, then loops up the right side (as you are looking at the front)(this is to act as a "trap" to keep sewer gases from coming back into your washer, I assume), and then connects to the drain pump under the washer.
In order the change the hose, you will need to remove the left side panel, and the bottom panel, and this will give you access to the entire hose....
Hope this helps!

More than likely the filter is clogged,remove the spray arm(there is a threaded cap in the center of the arm twist it to the left,then remove the # 15 or 20 torx(star shaped) screws out of the filter cover(around the edges)The filter is round and runs around the outer edge of the pump housing it lifts right out,clean it and reverse the process.It's the most common issue with not draining on this model.

Testimonial: "The solution from TomZS was precisely what I needed to fix my Maytag washer. Thanks a million!"
HI - i just replaced the bottom seal yesterday. The guy at the spares shop advised me to replace both (bottom of door and bigger seal ) at the same time to ensure no leaks - i did that. The bottom door seal come out when you unscrew the screws - (No need to remove door) and because of all the gunk (from years of washing and age of the rubber) i had to wedge a blunt knife in between (starting at one of the ends) and lever it out - MAKE SURE YOU TAKE NOTE OF THE WAY IT IS BEFORE YOU REMOVE IT! An easy way to remember is there is a nick in the rubber of the old (and new) seal and as it is not centred, just note if the nick is closer to the left or right of the machine, I have replaced mine and there is a little leak and now i wonder if i put the seal in upside down! it has to go in the same way - before you gimmy your's out can you tell me if the nick in the rubber is to the left or right? (LIZ at email@example.com) If I have put in back right there is a chance the screw didn't go through the plastic part of the seal and therefore not holding it in place properly. GOOD LUCK! Don't worry about having to really work at getting the old seal out - you don't need it anymore and i didn't damage mine, regards, Liz

Hello, Next, remove the wiring connectors and then while pulling back on the Locking Tab, turn the Drain Motor clockwise. i.e. Continue turning the Drain Motor clockwise until it reaches the two O'clock stop position. Then bring the motor out from the Sump. i.e. The Drain Motor is mounted to the Sump using a slot and tab fit.To install the new Drain Motor, insert it back into the Sump at the two O'clock position making sure that all three slots and tabs line up, then turn counter-clockwise until secure and the Locking Tab locks. This should suffice in helping you change the pump. Let me know if anything is not clear and I'll try and help further. Thank you for choosing FixYa today and good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)
Welcome to FixYa.
The drain pump on the Bosch dishwashers, specifically the SHU43 as you have, is pretty easy. In fact, once you gain access to the bottom via removing the toe panel/kick plate, it twist's off.
I have a complete B/S/H/ service manual I can send you via email, but you'd need to post your email address.
In the manual not only will it help guide you in the pump replacement, but any other servicing you may want or need to do down the road.
**Before proceeding turn off the power via the breaker or unplug the unit from it's power source...safety first**
Aside from this though, to change the pump you need to remove the kick plate as I alluded to, as shown here...
Once you have removed this panel, I prefer to remove the outer door panel as well which just allows at little more space to work, as shown here...
remove the #20 torx head screws around the panel, i.e.
The panel should now come of, careful the edges are sharp...
Set aside the plastic support blocks in the corner of the door panel, you can re-install them or not, it won't matter, i.e.
Now focus again to the basin where the pump attaches to the sump assembly. i.e.
I like to first remove the sump fill hose from the front of the sump to allow more room to work as well, i.e.
Remove the Sump Fill Hose, item 2, by pulling it out from the Sump and side inlet connections
Next, remove the wiring connectors and then while pulling back on the Locking Tab, turn the Drain Motor clockwise. i.e.
Continue turning the Drain Motor clockwise until it reaches the two O'clock stop position. Then bring the motor out from the Sump. i.e.
The Drain Motor is mounted to the Sump using a slot and tab fit.To install the new Drain Motor, insert it back into the Sump at the two O'clock position making sure that all three slots and tabs line up, then turn counter-clockwise until secure and the Locking Tab locks.
This should suffice in helping you change the pump. Let me know if anything is not clear and I'll try and help further.
