Question about Bosch SHU3036UC Dishwasher

1 Answer

Very long cycle time for Bosch DW

We have a Bosch SHU3036UC dishwasher, circa 2000. Just the other day, the water would not fill the dishwasher and it was just running dry (we could hear it working but no water). We tried again this morning and the water filled but the cycle took over 4 hours to complete. Any ideas on what to look for?
Many thanks,
Frank

I have a Bosch SHU3036UC dishwasher. While sitting idle - during the day or over night, it fills up with fresh water. I shut off the water supply last night and this morning it was dry. Any ideas?

Water at dish washer is not hot but water @ sink is hot. (right next to DW)


the dishwasher is normally on cold fill only and heats up water during wash cycle they can be connected to hot but is not recommended.

Bosch SHU3036UC/U11 dishwasher does not stop filling with water


Hi,
It sounds as if the main program board has developed a fault - as it should come to a complete stop. The fact it kept the water valve open with the door open is a serious fault- so I would have it checked before using it again.

Most machines have a water-stop feature - so if it develops a leak - it will shut off the water. This clearly didn't happen.

Bosch SHU3036UC draining on wash cycle


it is probably going to be a grimy door thermostat between the inner and outer panel. its hooked into the back of the soap dispenser. someone would have to take the outer panel off then clean wipe away the caked grime from the thermostat and put it back in its place. if this doesnt fix it then it could be a heat assembly problem or timer problem. in that case you would need an appliance tech out

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on....


From your description, I doubt that the problem is door latch is the cause.
The first thing that a modern dishwasher does before it begins to fill with water is run the drain pump.  It appears that this DW is not progressing to the next cycle (inlet water) and because the pump runs even when the door is open, I agree that the controller card may have failed.
If possible, inspect all the wire connections (remove main power before you do this) ... if there is a loose connection, the controller could do odd things.
Good Luck!  Please report back what you find, OK?

Mine did that. I tried changing the timer but it didn't help. I noticed that the water level kept rising until the drain pump would be triggered by the overfill protection switch on the left side under the insulation. It turned out that the fill valve didn't close all the way and so the pan would never empty. A new fill valve (easy to install and cheap) fixed it!

Bosch dishwashers have a seperate pump for washing and another for draining. Try making it fill more than once. There is usually a timed fill and the float stops it before it overfills It also might prevent it from washing without enouth water Try defeating the door switch and play with the float during fill. There may be a sensor that won't let it go into wash. Be prepared to get a little wet if it should start up suddenly. A slightly safer way is to fill it with the sprayer from the sink. and see if it will go into wash.

Stuck on first step of cycle (water draining). shu3036uc.


this may be due to a leak which you are not aware of. there is a float switch in the base which if operates, turns on the drain pump and nothing else. to check, tilt the appliance backwards 45 deg and see if water comes out of the back. if so, you are faced with identifying the leak which is often the main pump

Certainly sounds like the float is stuck in the over filled position or possible a bad float switch. Could also be a bad water fill valve - if you can blow air through it when removed then you need to replace it. You can follow this link to troubleshoot your washer, but note that its not exactly for your model - http://www.thermador.com/replacementparts/main/pdfs/SHU-complete-troubleshooting-guide.pdf Good luck!
