SOURCE: Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water

your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher with very little water pressure or power

It all stems back to your incomming water supply. Either the sieve is dirt or the valve is blocked with sedementation. Some valves are servicable and some are not,if your valve has screws then its revicable. (low water pressure restricts movement on arms.)

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The error code on your Bosch indicates a heating fault has been detected. To determine why you'll need to run a diagnostic program and perform a couple of test's. I can provide the data of what to look for but you will require a multimeter...preferably one that includes a "clamp on" ammeter to measure current or the amount amps being drawn.

First to enter the diagnostic...

To interpret errors,

Then finally the test to determine if you have a faulty heater or a control...it's typically the heater relay on the control itself.

Let me know what you make out of this info or if any of it is not clear you can post your email address and I'd be happy to send you the entire service manual as an attachment to an email.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. If this indeed was all the info you require or solved the problem please take a moment to rate the info when you're completed.

Thanks again,

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description
I'd say the issue actually with the control...unfortunately.
Bosch has had a history of this exact problem I'm about to lay out for you and it is rarely the element...maybe 1%. This is the first thing I'd be looking for if called out to service the unit with the symptoms you've described. **B/S/H/ also issued a recall on certain models between 1999 - 2006 depending on the model & serial number, you can check with yours but you'll need the serial number too. The issue was directly related to the heating circuit (specifically the heat relay on the control) Here`s the link if you want to see for yourself **

http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/


As I've alluded to the issue is likely within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ).

My first suggestion would be contacting Bosch re: the recall or calling in an authorized bosch service tech. if that is an option for you and your budget however, If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself...it really isn't very complicated.

It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board.

The culprit will 99% of the times be one of the pins from the heater relay,

9f1823d.jpg

**Flip this over and inspect the solder joints, it will be obvious when you see it.**

This ones new, but it's where to look...

9119d99.jpg


...hence the unit sit`s and takes longer & longer to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed...or takes a long time as I mentioned and eventually display's "1" on units with a display and usually very poor cleaning as a result.

You can also run the unit through a regular or econo cycle ...any cycle with the exception of rinse & hold, and with the door panel removed place an ammeter on the gray/black wire it should draw 11 amps during the wash cycle...after it fills and the flow switch indicates it has adequate water to engage the heater.

i.e.

f57273b.jpg
**My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...or it will not last, although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)**

**Please disconnect the power or turn off the breaker before attempting any service to the dishwasher.**


If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau/Siemens, to service your machine.

Hope this answer`s your question, let me know if I can assist you further.
Thank`s for visiting "FixYa" for your repair inquiries. Please take a moment and rate this solution to it's helpfulness.

Dishwasher takes too long on cycle


This sounds like a heating problem. The cycle will not advance if the water is not up to the proper temperature.

Next time you run a cycle, open up the door after a few minutes. A large ball of steam should roll out of the machine. No steam = no heat = no timer movement.

The most common suspect for repair is your heating element. The fix may be a simple as a loose or broken wire leading to the element.

The element itself may also be bad. This is easily checked with a multitester. Set the tester to ohms or resistance. The element should have an actual reading. A result of zero or infinity or overlimit is not acceptable for your heating element. It should then be replaced. Good luck
