Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher
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.

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.
