Question about Bosch 24 in. SGS56E02 Exxcel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Bosch Exxcel Auto Option won't go into drying cycle..

We've had our Bosch SGS56E02 for a couple of years, and it's worked very well up to now.
Over the past week, though, it's run through a cycle perfectly adequately until it's time for the drying phase. 
What's happening is that it finishes the 'Rinse' and then whirrs away, with the 'Rinse' light on when it should be drying.
It seems to be draining OK during the course of the main wash, and the dishes are actually being cleaned (which is a relief!)
Having surfed around to find out what might have caused this, we've cleared out the filters and made sure there are no blockages. I've also had the front off, and looked at the main board to see if there are any obviously burned out bits (it's a 356001806, by the way).
I've checked the waste outlet - no obvious blockages.
So.. I guess the question is: has the drying circuit blown up, or has the electronic control system thing gone wonky, or is there something else a bit wrong? Hope someone can help :)

    I have the same problem. It either finishes rinsing or won't dry or stops before the final rinse. The timer normally show 1 minute or a couple of minutes left and just keeps on going.

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!

It seem that your DW drain it's water by syphon action. Check if the drain hose is properly installed as a U shape; otherwise the DW can drain itself at any time, leaving the soap undissolved .

That is because the water level switch activated by the floating sensor is stuck.

You probably need to have the water level switch replaced.

SOURCE: Bosch SHX33A runs continuously. Never finishes cycle.

I have a guide here to walk you through the process of clearing the drain system. You most likely have a clog somewhere and the dishwasher can't proceed because it would cause it to flood.

The machine does not heat up


Bosch dishwashers do not have a heated dry option, the water is heated with a inline water heater but it does not have a heating element to dry the dishes. Make sure that you use jet dry and that you open the door when it is done, after an hour or so the dishes will be dry. This is a common issue with the Bosch dishwasher, but not a problem with the unit

Bosch Exxcel Auto option


There should be a float switch inside the dishwasher sometimes these get hung up on the full position which in turn keeps the solenoid from allowing the water to come on. remove the bottom rack and check to see if this is the case. Dislodging the float should fix the problem. If not listen to see if the solonoid Clicks when you turn the cycle to fill position if not it could be either solonoid or the timer. if you hear click and still no water check strainer in water line could be clogged or water is turned off some where.
