Question about Bosch She4ap02uc Ascenta Dishwasher 42 White
Used to work fine. Recently we've found that when the cycle is started the machine will whirr and clunk and whirr some more, and then the 'Clean' light comes on without the cycle actually having run. This process takes about 2 minutes. If we restart the cycle multiple times it will eventually start and run normally. Any ideas of what to check, things to clean (we clean the filter regularly), etc? Thanks much.

the is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. it actually filters the water going into your dishwasher and leaves your dishes spot free. after the first load i was amazed that the white film was gone and my dishes were sparkling. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.

You could try running the machine with the drain hose leading to a large bucket. If it works OK in this situation then the blockage will be most likely where the drain hose joins the house drainage system - often at a junction under the kitchen sink. With the drain hose disconnected you should be able to see the blockage and clear it with a suitable pointy tool.
Let me know if this sorts it. Thanks, D.

We have had the same problem, except the water was not getting hot either. After a ton of research there was an issue that kept popping up. There was a massive recall on many of the model and serial #s. According to the recall there was a fire risk from the control board, the brains for the machine, that sits behind the digital display. For those not "at risk" but with the water not heating and the run time increasing, the problem can still be with the control board. I removed the control board and found a burned out connection with one of the controls. I soldered it and put the machine back together. The run time has returned to much closer (down to 128 from 184) than before the fix, but still is not back down to the original 108 minutes. I've priced a new control board--about $120.
This happened right after the warranty ran out. Imagine that.

Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.
To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...
-high temp wash
-high temp wash
All the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2 minutes). You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal. If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (i.e. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
