Question about Bosch Dishwashers

1 Answer

Dishwasher is "tripping" the breaker & not draining.

In the middle of a wash cycle, the dishwasher quit & there was a "burnt" smell in the air. I checked the circuit panel & saw that it had tripped the breaker. I flipped the breaker back on & tried a "quick wash" to see if it would finish the job, but it tripped again. There is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher that won't drain & the dishes are not clean.
What should I do.

I had the same problem with a Hobart AM8 passthru dishwasher. The electrician determined that some of the wires had become exposed and were wet, thus shorting things out and tripping the breaker.

Unit quit in the middle of a cycle and won't power up, totally dead. Is there a suspect noise filter or fuse I should begin looking for?


Make sure your circuit breaker in the main breaker box has not tripped, or "poped". It will be one a little out of place and a bit loose if it has tripped. Turn it off and back on to reset. If it tripps immediately, you have a short somewhere, possibly in the dishwasher, so you will need an electrician and or Appliance tec. to find and fix.

My bosch shu43co5 made a burning smell and stop working in middal of a wash the breaker seems to be fine and trying the power button/ powerscub/ reg wash don't get any lights on. what is my next step in...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

**Before I begin I will inform you B/S/H/ ( Bosch Thermador, Gaggenau ) issued a recall on certain models between 1999 - 2006 depending on the serial number.** Here's the link so you can see for yourself.

http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/

Aside from that and based on your post "my bosch shu43co5 made a burning smell and stop working in middle of a wash the breaker seems to be fine" it may just be a loose/burnt connection in the dishwasher junction box.

**Now 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.

i.e.

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.


Let me know what you find and I'll try to assist you further if necessary. I'd still suggest looking into the possible recall for your machine though.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

No power, tripping circuit breaker, loud pop inside when wash cycle starts.


Hello,

Sounds like the main wash pump has burnt out are there any leaks under unit.It could also be the heater.but the loud pop sounds more like the wash pump.


Hope this helped.

I have a bosch dishwasher model # I believe is SHX4AP05UC it keeps tripping my braker in the middle of washing wont complete a cycle any suggestions?


Adam, in order to help you, you must provide me with more info. What size breaker is tripping. What does the maufactor's manual reads about what size circuit it must be plugged into. If your house is a little old you probably have a 10 amp breaker that is tripping. If so than the manufaturer states theat it is recomamded to place it onto a 20 amp breaker. Only switch out the 10 map breaker to a 20 amp breaker if your the wire from the breaker is a 12 gauge wire.
Do not put a 20 amp breaker onto a 14 guage wire because it will most likely melt the insulation due to heat whichwill expose the bare copper wire which could lead to burning your house down.

Jenn_air model #JD8910AWS won't drain


I was having the following symptoms: If I hit the drain button, it would stay at 2 minutes and just click on and off. If I hit the rinse button, it would rinse all 9 minutes OK. It would always stick in the middle of a full cycle and just start clicking.
I just fixed it. I shut off the circuit breaker, opened the door up (all torx screws from inside of door) to get the the upper controls. One lead (of two) of a capacitor (square blue component) had actually worked itself out of the control board. I cleaned it up and resoldered it in. All better now - for now.

Dishwasher tripping the circuit breaker


Andy, leave the breaker off and remove the toe panel (bottom panel) from the dishwasher. Remove the cover of the junction box where the cord connection or wiring is made. Look at the wire caps and see if they are not burnt. Sometimes these connections become loose and arch, tripping the breaker. If so, cut the wires, strip a new end and reconnect.
