It doesn't work at all If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

SOURCE: Bosch DLX series didn't drain, now no power

I had a Bosch DLX series dishwasher that had multiple problems.

First, it had greyish water in the bottom and pushing the power button did not turn on any lights. it had mostly finished a cycle, but not quite. my first thought was to clean it out. i sponged out all the water and removed and cleaned out the filters from the bottom which were all quite nasty. i found food, tiny bones, etc. I cleaned it out and that did nothing but was still probably the cause of the problem. I called Bosch tech support and asked about areset switch. There is none. They told me to switch off the circuit breaker for 30 MINUTES to reset everything. I did that which did not fix the problem.

I then examined the connector wires (connecting the electric to my house wiring) which are in the front under the kick plate, and discovered that they had MELTED! The wiring supplied by Bosch was stranded wire, and my home wiring is solid core. i trimmed the burnt stuff and reconnected it with new wire nuts. if this happens again i plan to disassemble the dishwasher's electric and replace the stranded wire with the good stuff.

That restored the electric and the lights and display. i then ran a test cycle and it seemed to just hum. my guess after googling a bit was that the float was stuck in the up position, and it was trying to drain. This site http://www.applianceaid.com/boschDW.html told me how to run the test mode.

"To start test program, press and hold both POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH program buttons, then turn unit on by pressing ON/OFF button. When program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press ON/OFF button."

The test mode tested out all functions which I think wound up reseting the float switch which actually fixed the rest of it.

Bosch end cycle beeping


The Self-Help section in your manual states you can adjust the volume or deactivate the beeping signal. Instructions on how to do so are supposed to be in the "cycle completion signal" section of the manual which it appears the tech writers forgot to include in the published version of the manual. I have not worked with this particular model so your best option now is to call their customer service number and talk to someone that knows how to turn it off. FYI, their customer service phone number is 800-944-2904.

Our Bosch DLX series dishwasher slowly fills up when it isn't running. If we don't use it for a day or two the water will flow out the bottom. When it runs, it runs normally.


Hi, the problem is the water valve itself. Based on your description and the fact that this is a common issue with Bosch dishwasher's a new valve will resolve the problem. You'll need a new valve assembly part # 425458 and it's available at most part's places or online. It is about $25 - $30. Let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks for using "fixya" for your inquiry. Please take a second and rate the info provided for you here. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

Bosch wont


Faulty inlet valve or water in the bottom tray which will activate the float swich and pump out any water. See that this moves up and down freely. Turn electrics off first.
