I have two dishwashers one works great the other is always having problems one constantly has a large amount of water not draining and additionaly doen't have any water coming out at all. Several repairs over the 5 years have never cleared up the water build up problem.
I haven't had a disposal clogging problem and am now trying to check empeller drain using the solution on this sight. Please help, repair men are very expensive and very unresponsive once they need to order a part.

I have had the impeller freeze up on my Bosch 3 times in almost 10 years.

First time, the pump was replaced under warranty. Plus, I couldn't figure out how to get into the thing to get the pump out (and I am pretty knowledgeable in that sort of thing.).

2nd time, after I found the pump costs about 1/2 of a new dishwasher, I tore into it and found that you can access the pump from inside the tub. You will need to pump or siphon all the water out first.
Then remove the spray bar, covers, etc. until you get down to a cavity in the bottom where you can see the end of the impeller bolt that holds the impeller on the motor.
Get a metric socket and 1/4" ratchet, position on the bolt, and turn. That should break the restriction free.
Put it all back together and see if it will run. Mine did.

Third time it happened, same thing as the 2nd time, all over again.

Bosch dishwasher doesn't work. water not coming


Hi Gilgol, The link below is a Bosh Dishwasher list of error codes, I believe your error code is E3....CHEERS..
http://removeandreplace.com/2015/10/09/bosch-dishwasher-error-codes-how-to-clear-what-to-check/
Bosch Dishwasher Error Code E3
Fault Condition: Not filling with water
Repair or Check: If the water supply cut-off valve on the dishwasher is completely open but the dishwasher will not fill with water then shut off the water supply and unplug the dishwasher. Remove the water fill line and check to see if the water inlet screen valve is plugged up. If so then replace the water valve. Cleaning the screen can make the issue worse so always replace if the screen is clogged. The valve can get stuck open from gunk and therefore flood or overfill.
Parts Required: Water inlet valve

Why is my Bosch SHE4AM15UC dishwashwer not heating water not sanitizing? How do I fix this problem?


The problem could be a failed heating element. If replacement of the control panel results in no change, the element could be the problem.

Bosch SGS43E02 will not drain - otherwise seems fine Any help? Thanks


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn't overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn't working properly, the drain pump isn't working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home's drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Rinse agent won't dispense in Maytag dishwasher


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.

Just bought a Bosch dishwasher and we were told that they have no heating mechanism to dry the dishes, which is why they are more energy efficient.  You are supposed to leave the door closed for at least one hour after the cycle is complete.  The heat that has built up inside during the wash cycle will dry the dishes.  It is also recommended to always use JetDry. If you follow this advice, the dishes will come out fine.

No water heater problem. Make sure you are using rinse aid formula and back off the soap to 1/2 of what you were using.
