Question about Dishwashers
Bosch dishwasher, Ascenta SHE4AM1. I start any cycle("active" light is lit). I hear a quiet whirring as it starts up. Then the spraying starts, but only lasts 5-10 seconds and then quits. The "active" light goes out and the "clean" light comes on. Then it sits silently until I turn it off.
Things I have tried:
1. Ran the hot water tap in the sink nearby. It took 4 tries, but the cycle held and ran for the prescribed length of time. The "active" light went out and the "clean" came on and it sat silently for most of the night. When I finally openned the door, there was water in the bottom (about 1 inch).
2. Tried all the cycles, same behavior for each , "active" light on, cycle started, after about a minute or so, spraying stopped and "clean" light came on. Cycle seemed to end - washer became silent and sat with the "clean" light on).
3. Made sure water supply was turned on. It was.
On the back of the selector switch there is a timer motor or clock motor assembly. The gears wear out or the motor has lost its ability to go through the cycles. Replace it and you should be fine.
