SOURCE: need a manual for Bosch SGS53c12gb dishwasher The

Hi,

Firstly, here's the manual for the SGS53C12GB/XX you requested:

https://portal.bsh-partner.com/TCcustomBSH/controller/download_file?PDFOBID=qcyk3cjcdcso0pdmdb---43k&UMOBID=qcyk3facdcso0pdmdb---43k

The manual will tell you that the check water light (tap icon) is a problem with the water-supply, but this warning light also illuminates when the machine fails to pump out.

Your problem is most likely a blockage in the sump or the drain-hose or possibly a defective drain pump motor. The drain pump impeller can get jammed on these.

First, with the power switch on the control panel in the ON position, open the door and locate the mushroom float in the bottom of the washing compartment/tub.

Lift the float (about 3/4 inch) and listen for a humming from the drain pump motor. If you can hear the motor, keep the float lifted and the water level in the washer starts to drop. If the motor hums, but the water level doesn't drop, you either have a blockage in the drainage system or the impeller may be jammed or become detached from the spindle. If you can't hear the motor with the float raised, the drain pump motor may have failed.

If you can hear the motor, next check for blockages in the drainage system. First remove the filters from the bottom of the washing compartment and check for any debris/blockages here (see pages 19-20 of the user manual I supplied. Next, if the drain hose is attached directly to the waste-trap under your sink, disconnect the hose from the spigot on the trap and check for any blockages in the end of the hose or in the spigot on the trap itself. If you haven't found any blockages in either of these places, pull the dishwasher from under the counter and follow the hose all the way back to the rear of the dishwasher, squeezing and flexing the hose gently as you go. You may be able to feel a blockage in the hose and the gentle flexing may break-up any blockage. Don't be aggressive with the hose as it could split, particularly if it's old.

Finally, if the drain hose is attached to the waste-trap, make sure you aren't running the dishwasher with the plug in the sink as this can create a vacuum and prevent the dishwasher from pumping out.

Hope this helps. Please try the above and then get back to me with your findings if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

The water supply line to my Bosch dishwasher (model # shx46a06uc/21) froze. We didn't realize this and tried to run the dishwasher. Now the line is unfrozen, but the dishwasher still won&#


Check for water supply to the valve. Check for 120vac at the valve during fill cycle. If you have both, the water inlet valve is bad, part number 00425458.

DOES NOT START


First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

Error message F:21. Bosch


Take the kick panel off and see if there is a tray under it to catch leaks. If it has water in the tray, that is the problem.

Bosch classixx 1200 express spin light flashing water wont drain pump is running water draining very slow i checked for blockage none found help... thanks


Sounds like the blockage is closer to the drum, Tilt the machine as far back as you can to access underneath. Make sure to have a basin and remove the pipe going from the drain pump to the tub and see if anything is obstructing the pipe or stuck in the tub, is usually a sock. Hope this helps.

Wash cycle stopped with water in the bottom. Seems like there is no power. Can't get lights on cycles buttons to turn on. Power button does nothing. Checked circuit breakers. All are on. Lights and outlets...


Check the wiring in the units junction box. Its located at the bottom right corner. You will likely find melted connectors. If so, you need to cut the wires back and replace these connectors. Make sure you turn the power off before doing any of this work of course. Good Luck.

your chicken wish bone may have broken your drain pump- it may have prevented the impeller to spin while the motor was on-not good. you may want to consider changing the drain pump...
