Open Question

Bosch dishwasher Model shx46a05Uc/14 not running

The motor is activated but no cycle begins. We just secured and leveled the unit as it was always unlevel. Could we have done something to the unit in the leveling securing process. Perhaps there is some kind of activator switch that was compromised.

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher cleans but will not drain.

Remove the drain hose where it attaches to the disposal. This area often clogs and will prevent any d/w from draining.

Hello Richard, Welcome to Fixya ! You've come to the right place. The problem you're experiencing unfortunately is a common one. The water inlet valve has been an issue with B/S/H built ( this includes bosch, thermador, seimens & gaggenau ) dishwasher's going back to the mid 90's. The part to repair it is available at most brick & mortar appliance part centers or you can check out on-line vendors such as repairclinic, apwagner etc. Do a search for part # 1105846 at repairclinic, you'll see what I'm talikng about. By the way it's about $35. Hope that helps move you forward. Let me know if I can assist you further, or need help on how to change it etc. It's relatively easy with Bosch. Thanks for coming to "fixya" for your inquiries and please take a second to rate this answer according to my helpfulness. Goof luck. Macmarkus :)

Are you please able to confirm what exactly is happening when you mention "dishwasher just keeps going".

Is it in a wash cycle and throwing the water around through the wash arms or do you just hear a pump running with water sitting in the base. Most likely there is a leak into the base and the auto stop circuit is trying to empty the dishwasher by running the drain pump. I would suggest you check the base of dishwasher for leaks.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your postit may just be a loose/burnt connection in the dishwasher junction box or a severed wire in the door panel. (though a faulty door latch is possible...I'd start with the things I suggest here first)

** I would start by first shutting off the breaker...safety first**

Then removing the kick plate ( access panel at the bottom )...

...and checking the wiring at the junction box for the dishwasher 120vac supply line.

Remove the murret's and visually inspect the wire for "resistance burn" and strip the wires back and install new fastener's if necessary to repair.

example:

This is actually quite common to find a wire connector come loose due to improper fastening and once the unit is in use for a while the connections heat & cool, become loose from normal operating vibrations and burn up from all the added heat caused by "resistance".

Typically this will manifest in just the manner you've described.

If it looks OK there I'd remove the outer door panel ( careful the edges are sharp ) via the #20 torx head screws...

macmarkus_168.jpg

...check for a severed wire at the pivot point in the door, typically covered in a plastic casing as shown here..
.

The small plastic blocks which may be present in the bottom corners of the door panel, i.e.

macmarkus_170.jpg
...they can be a pain to re-install, but they do only go in one way, however it is ok to leave them out...their only purpose is to strengthen the structure.


Good luck and let me know what you find and I'll try to assist you further if necessary. Thank you for choosing FixYa today for your inquiry.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Bosch dishwasher shx46a06uc-30


the unit will try to complete the last command it was engage in before it went in the overfill safety mode. you must perform a cancel drain cycle to reset unit to default setting. Remember the drain cycle is 2 min and must be completed to reset main control. however if it went into a overfill status you have a leak and it generally comes from the pressure chamber on the lefthand side of unit where the water enters tub

Wash cycle stopped with water in the bottom. Seems like there is no power. Can't get lights on cycles buttons to turn on. Power button does nothing. Checked circuit breakers. All are on. Lights and outlets...


Check the wiring in the units junction box. Its located at the bottom right corner. You will likely find melted connectors. If so, you need to cut the wires back and replace these connectors. Make sure you turn the power off before doing any of this work of course. Good Luck.

Our dishwasher takes about 3-4 hours to run a cycle. My brother has the same model and it takes about an hour. Is there an adjustment that we can make to correct this? Thanks, Karla


make sure that your filter in the bottom is clean and if you are using the automatic wash cycle, it will wash until the water is clean. Sometimes it will take an hour, sometimes it will take close to 2 depending upon the level of dirty dishes in the dishwasher. And don't rinse! They work better on dirty dishes.

Bosch Dishwasher SHX46A05UC/23 - No Water


Sounds like your recirculating pump is clogged If it is water can't get up enough pressure to turn the sprayers.
You'll need to start pulling parts out of the bottom inside to get to that pump. I don't work on a lot of Bosch, but that sure sounds like it to me. I see this a lot. Hope this helps...

Dishes do not clean same detergent and rinse no change to amount


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Dishwasher motor runs (even with door open), but no Water


I believe the problem is in the electronic board. It is getting a different signal thus not allowing it to run properly. You can have a local service technician for the company look at it but this is probably the cause.
