Question about Bosch She4ap02uc Ascenta Dishwasher 42 White

Open Question

Bosch ascenta SHE4AP02UC/06 must restart multiple (4-5-6) times to get cycle to run

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.

    Two things I've done in the past couple days seem to have improved things. Background: we get our water from our pond and have a chlorine treatment system and water filter to clean it up. When I went down to add chlorine to the tank the other day I found that the filter, while not clogged solidly, was in need of replacement, which I did. This may have helped by raising the water pressure (but I can't see any obvious difference - but I don't have a pressure gauge on my fingertip either :-). The other thing was that it was indicating it was out of rinse agent, but since we use a detergent with built-in rinse agent I hadn't filled it up recently. On a whim I filled it. Both things were done pretty much simultaneously so not possible to tell which might have had an effect. However, since doing these two things the dishwasher has started first time every time we're run it. Hmmm...

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.

SOURCE: Bosch Running a LONG LONG Time and Watering Remaining

Hi,
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.

SOURCE: Bosch she44c wash cycle time keeps extending.

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.

Hi


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

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry


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.


Thanks
Rylee

Bosche axxis washer spin cycle ticking noise


Assuming everything else is working normally, I would still suspect there is an object that is getting stuck between the rotating drum and the outer housing. Maybe not coins, but something longer, like a pocket comb or the wire inserts used in some garments. It is easy to take the top off of the unit, and this might help to isolate the noise better. Early spin is usually a bit unbalanced, so it is possible it could also be something really simple like a hose clamp that has sagged enough to be contacting something else, and it only shows up when the machine is bouncing a bit.

If it was a two cycle I'd say it was clogged exhaust ports. But you have a pretty exotic bike. So I guess it's a timing issue dealing with the exhaust Ox sensors.

it sounds as though the circulating pump may not be operating. if so fault is often due to the pump capacitor being faulty and this is a cheap part.
