Open Question

Bosch shy66c06 overflow pan has water in it

The presenting symptom is that the drain runs constantly (even with the door open), and the DW won't fill. Macmarkus wrote a post on how to test the overflow switch actuator (the little red stick) - his underlying assumption was that there was no water in the pan. What if the switch actuates because there IS water in the pan? What things should be checked? So far, we have replaced the pump assembly, a short hose going to the pump, and then the door gasket. We have watched as it fills, and can't see any drips. The float is up because of the water in the overflow pan - it's doing its job properly. Mining the suggestions on FixYa for what to check next, we find (1) all the gaskets and O-rings in the pump assy, (2) the inlet, components, (3) the drain hose for congealed fat or other obstruction. The DW has at least 6" behind it, so we don't think the drain hose is kinked. As long as my husband has to tear the machine apart, what else should he look at? Thanks in advance.

Certainly sounds like the float is stuck in the over filled position or possible a bad float switch. Could also be a bad water fill valve - if you can blow air through it when removed then you need to replace it. You can follow this link to troubleshoot your washer, but note that its not exactly for your model - http://www.thermador.com/replacementparts/main/pdfs/SHU-complete-troubleshooting-guide.pdf Good luck!

SOURCE: Bosch SHU9925UC Dishwasher Stuck in Initial Drain Cycle

OK Bosch Dw fans.........here is the fix if your SHX dishwasher is stuck on the drain cycle. This may save you a couple hundred bucks.......so listen up. There is a tendency for the very small float switch to STICK in the ON position, which will cause the drain motor to continuously run......and DISallow any other function to work. DISCONNECT POWER. Did I mention to disconnect power? Take off the front base cover....2 torx screws. Remove the other 2 torx screws in the metal clips that fasten the top of the DW to the underside of your countertop. NOW...carefull slide your DW out. You may have to disconnect your water and elec supply if you do not have enough slack to pull it out. Once the DW is out of the cabinet, remove the shiny metal cover on the LEFT side by removing a single torx screw. You will now see a small plastic assembly with a red plastic piece that moves up and down as it rides on a small red styrofoam float. This up and down movement engages a small white plastic switch visible with 3 wires coming out of it. You can carefully UNSNAP this switch out of its mount, and pull the 3 wire plug off of it. THere is a small square blue plastic tab that is supposed to easily slide in and out of the switch. If it is stuck IN, you can sometimes tap the switch and the blue tab will pop out, which is what it is supposed to do without tapping it. You can carefully with a knife blade separate the case on this switch and note the way it comes apart. Clean out any micro debris out of the small channels that the blue tab ride up and down in. Then set it in the channel while holding up the small switch tab that rides on it and see if it slides up and down without sticking! I like to take a piece of wax paper and rub in on the channel and blue tap to provide some lube for the switch to slide easily on. Now, put the switch back on and manually move the red plastic assembly up and down while you are watching the blue tab. The tab should ride up and down with the red assy. If not, buy a new switch. Google the # on the switch and order one. If the tab slides up and down, put things together in reverse order and give it a try. Hope it works for you. This should take you an hour give or take. Take the $200 you just saved and have a night out on me. ........so even though these German Appliances have a good name because of past reliability, the american tendency to value engineer them with plastic parts to reduce costs and increase profit.........just cost you an hour of your time. Will we ever learn.? ......if it ain't broke, value engineer it until it only lasts through the warranty period so you can then collect service and parts blood money from your fellow american.

SOURCE: Bosch SHU 4000 series dishwasher; Water keeps on filling

Follow-up: I was able to fix the problem on Bosch model # SHU 4002UC. Purchased water inlet valve (part number 425458) from Sears Parts Center. I required the Sears unit number from the original invoice as Sears computer system apparently cannot identify the Bosch model number. The valve is as described by meyerjr above; however it is located at the bottom front of the machine so could be replaced (not so easily) without removing the machine. Cost of part was $30.50 Cdn including tax.

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.

Motor runs with door open. No water in pan.


Sounds to me like there may be water in the moisture sensor. Your dishwasher is probably leaking and the noise you hear is the drain pump activated.

Bosch shy66c06 doesn't turn off when door opened


This is a partial solution. After reading lots of other similar descriptions (none of which were automatically identified by FixYa, btw), we realized it was probably water in the 'catch basin' or whatever that pan (white plastic) below the sump pump is. Sure enough, there was about 1/2" of water in the pan. We hoped that by overriding the float switch and watching it run through a cycle, we would be able to see where the leak came from. Unfortunately, running a rinse & hold (10 min) didn't do it, so we are about to run it on a quick wash (56 min). To do this, we have left everything connected (power & water), and removed the toe kick cover, to give us access to the works below the main compartment. A long chopstick works well to get at the red float switch actuator; we used two of them to dip a washcloth in the water to soak, and then remove the washcloth and wring it over a bowl. Slow, and tedious. But the alternative was to do the 3 hr teardown just to get the pan dried before we could run it through a complete cycle. We're still hoping this will let us see the leak.

Hi I keep getting an error message "F27" on my


F27 OVERFLOW CONDITION
If the overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than 60 seconds, an Overflow Condition occurs. In an
overflow condition, the door remains locked and the drain pump runs constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the display is cleared. Turn off hot and cold water faucets and unplug the unit before servicing.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, water inlet value, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Check for drain pump failure.
6. Check the inlet valve for proper shut off.
7. Check the pressure switch for proper operation.

Pump will not shut off even with door open


Hi, There is a float under the dishwasher to protect from flooding... If there is a leak and there is water under the dishwasher in the pan then the float switch will turn on the drain pump...
first I could remove the toe panel check in the pan for water... if no water still check the float it maybe stuck up (soap can get under the float and hold it up)
remove water and make sure float in down... if not you may need a new float switch...

The defrost pan overflows constantly.


Is the ice dispenser door stuck open or not sealing correctly?

If you do not have any water supply connected to the refrigerator we can rule out any leaks at the water filter or water lines near the drain pan.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your refrigerator.

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on....


From your description, I doubt that the problem is door latch is the cause.
The first thing that a modern dishwasher does before it begins to fill with water is run the drain pump.  It appears that this DW is not progressing to the next cycle (inlet water) and because the pump runs even when the door is open, I agree that the controller card may have failed.
If possible, inspect all the wire connections (remove main power before you do this) ... if there is a loose connection, the controller could do odd things.
Good Luck!  Please report back what you find, OK?

Dishwasher motor runs (even with door open), but no Water


I believe the problem is in the electronic board. It is getting a different signal thus not allowing it to run properly. You can have a local service technician for the company look at it but this is probably the cause.

Water won't fill


when facing the dw pull it out from under counter and on the left side there is a panel held on with 2 screws. take that off and under there are the float switches for the overflow. those switches is what causes the pump to run all the time but do nothing else.
