Question about Bosch 24 in. SHX46A02 / SHX46A06 Built-in Dishwasher
A couple of weeks my dishwasher wouldn't start. I pushed buttons and nothing happened. The next evening (fortunately before I called a repair service) it started up and worked fine..Three days ago it did the same thing, no lights, no action. I have reset the circuit breaker twice with no results. It is a Bosch SHX46A02UC and only 16 months old. Any ideas?
The door switch is definitely not the problem if the indicator lights are not coming on. These lights are supposed to come on when the door is open.
The problem is 1 of 3 things:
1) No power to outlet that DW is plugged into;
2) Bad connection where power cord is connected to dishwasher (see very bottom front, under kick panel)
3) Some problem internal to the DW (eg., bad switch, shorted wire, etc., )
Our SHX46A is definitely having problem 3, but Bosch's manual gives zero help. So, off to find more info online or, lastly, to call Bosch repair person. Sigh.

Our non-power problem was the controller. (The circuit board containing the wash cycle buttons). We Just had the service tech out today. Took him all of about 20 minutes. Good thing for us is that part is warrantied for 5 years and ours is 4 but less than 5.
Service call was $94.
IF We would have had to buy the part out of warranty it would have been an additional $98 or so.
Was happy that it was still under warranty but worst case would have been about $200 in this situation.

Check thatr the door switch is making proper contact...try pushing the door a bit harder when closing.... C.

A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
