Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I HAVE A BOSCH SHU5305 DISHWASHER THAT WHEN IT IS TURNED ON IT WILL NOT DRAW WATER FOR THE WASH. IT JUST SITS THERE AND HUMS. HAD A BIT OF WATER FROM THE SINK BACK UP IN THE DISHWASHER AND SPILL OVER ONTO THE FLOOR YESTERDAY. I CLEANED THE DISHWASHER FILTER WHICH WAS COMPLETELY CLOGGED. I THINK THE DISHWASHER WORKED FINE PRIOR TO THIS INCIDENT BUT THIS COULD ALL BE COINCIDENCE. I DON'T KNOW IF I HAVE A PLUMMING PROBLEM OR A WASHER PROBLEM. THE SINK WATER WORKS FINE. I CHECKED THE ON/OFF WATER VALVE TO THE WASHER AND IT'S ON. IS THERE A RESET ON THIS WASHER? SUGGESTIONS? Jim

If the solenoid valve is humming and calling for water, you probably have a plugged screen in the valve, some you can get to and clean, some you have to replace.

My dishwasher fills, but won't start running. it just sits full of water and just hums.


Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

Contunuous draining turned into a flood when unit powered off


The fill valve is governed by the float switch. I doubt that your fill valve (solenoid) has failed.

Focus on replacing the float switch and you should be all set.

Good Luck!

Asko dishwasher won't start, just hums and gets hot


Get this every few months - don't know the problem but we disconnect from unit and tilt the dishwasher and loads of stinky water spills out - from where I don't know. Then just **** all the water out of the drain bit with a chicken baster - primative but has worked every time so far. Keep trying to get water out until doesn't hum when switched on.

Bosch SHU9915UC Dishwasher - wash cycle won't happen


hi there your dishwasher has gone into flood protection mode ie. water has leaked into the base and activated the float switch.

to try and locate the leak tip your d/w back to drain the water from the base then remove both side panels and start a program to see if you can see where the water is leaking from, being careful not to touch anything while the d/w is running as live parts are exposed

hope this is of some help

Bosch SHU5318: Water wont start washing


if it hums when you are in the wash phase then something is jamming the wash impeller like broken glass tooth pick found a necklace in one one time i think replacing the control board fixed the other problems on most washers the drain pump is separate from the wash motor haven't worked on bosch so not sure take off the lower spray arm and go down till you get to the impeller then do what you have to do clear it or replace wash motor
