Question about Dishwashers

Bosch dishwasher doesn't cycle

We got our dishwasher about a year and a half ago. Apparently this is just long enough to be out of warranty. Bosch wants about $600 to come out and fix this thing but for that money I would rather get a new one (it will NOT be a Bosch). Anyway, I figure I've got nothing to lose but I'm gonna need some help. When you turn on the dishwasher it hums and makes noise and sprays a little water around in the bottom (there is about 1/2 a cup of water in the bottom that won't drain). Anyway, we called Bosch. One tech told us that it was the motherboard going bad. Another guy told us that it was the circulating pump. When they told us that it was going to cost roughly the same amount as what we paid for it to begin with I said nevermind. I'll do it myself and take my business elsewhere. Can you guys point me in the right direction to: 1) get this thing diagnosed correctly 2) get the right parts and get it fixed Thanks in advance for the help! -Jon

    My fill valve has a bad disconuity. This video helped me troubleshoot. Ordered a new part from Sears. Sears is great because they have online manuals with exploded views to make sure that you got the right part.

what is the model #?... there are 2 buttons when pushed together it will drain the water out..try the button to the left next to power scrub... and economy...hold the 2 buttons for 3 sec. you will hear you drain pump running.. if you don't hear any water draining out into your sink, you might have a clog d/w drain line.

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher: won't fill with water

The flood switch is tripped. This is located under the unit. Unplug or flip the breaker to the dishwasher, take off the black kick plate under the door, 2 screws, and you will see the white plastic "pan". The flood switch is located where you can't really see it but it is on the left hand side wall and is made of styrofoam. The best thing to do is to put some rags in the pan, this is not easy because there is little room to put them, and soak-up the water that has filled the pan. Eventually you will get enough water out that the float will deactivate the switch. What you hear "running" when you turn it on is actually the drain pump, it get activated when the flood switch is tripped.

My Bosch DW SHU5302 also got stuck during a cycle and ran and ran. Turns out this is a known problem with these DW's. The problem is that a trace on the main board burns off that controls the heater. If the heater doesn't come on then the DW keeps running waiting for the water to heat up. Re-soldering this trace fixes this problem. If you get a repair guy out, he will only change the board. They are not allowed to re-solder which doesn't fix the problem for long as the same trace will burn off. Did this about 8 years ago and it is still fine.

  • Limited warranty for non-electronic components; parts only (1st to 2nd year)
  • Limited warranty for control board (microprocessor); parts only (1st to 2nd year)
  • Limited warranty for motor or any component of the motor (1st year to 10th year)

I bought a new bosch dishwasher less than one year ago, and it doesn't clean my dishes because the lid on the soap dispenser will not open during the cleaning cycle. Please help SAP! Thank...


Try cleaning the latch that holds the door. After a year the detergent will build up on the spring causing it not to open. If that doesn't do it call the people who you bought it off of. It should have a extended warranty for a year.
