Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Bosch dishwasher inoperable, clean water flow, not running

My Bosch dishwasher was allowing clean water to continue flowing even after the washing cycle was complete. I was trying to toggle the red floater switch last night to see if it was the problem and accidentally touched something metal on the bottom of the dishwasher with the screwdriver. There was a spark and a small pop. The dishwasher still has power going to it and the LED display still lights up with how much time is left in the cycle, but there is nothing actually happening, no hum of a motor, no water flow, nothing. Is my dishwasher completely dead now? Is there any way to try and reset the dishwasher? I tried unplugging it and plugging it back in already. Do dishwashers have internal fuses like cars that can just be replaced? Could this be the issue? I'm a single mom and really can't afford to replace my dishwasher and none of the appliance repair people in the area will work on a Bosch without charging me as much as a new dishwasher would cost me. I know a dishwasher isn't a necessity, but being a single mom of a toddler that works full time it really is a life saver.

Bosch Model SHX68T55UC/02: Display says "watertap" and will not continue to run. There is water standing in the bottom of the machine. What should I do?


The machine is telling you to check the water supply which fills your dishwasher. Check if the water pipe is frozen or blocked, do you need to turn on a tap to allow the water go flow to the dishwasher ? :)

Bosch Aquatak Clic 125 running problems - keeps pulsing and unable to reach continuous full pressure - has been working well up to now - water pressure OK


After the machine has stared the wash cycle stop the machine. Check the water level in the sump. It it is below the required fill, the pump will drain the sump, suck air resulting in pulsing.

Add a modest amount of water about a quart or so and try continuing the wash. see if it reduces the pulsing. Continue to add to determine if it is the water level.

If you confirm that the water level is low, depending on the model it usually fills on a timer. If it had been working properly then either the stop valve under the sink has allowed the internal rubber washer to dislodge into the flow path, or the inline filter at the connection to the dishwasher is clogged or the electric solenoid at the washer is failing and not allowing the water to enter at the prescribed amount.

Hope this helps?
Below the stop valve do to the hot water is known to have the rubber seal fail which can plug the hose limiting the water flow. The valve can be repaired without removing it. The stem with the house water off can be removed and a new rubber seal installed. remember to remove the debris from the failed seal.

Bosch classixx dishwasher saying check water also not washing or spining


Bosch dishwashers have a food filter to catch food particles. You have to clean it occasionally, or it plugs up and stops water flow. This could be your problem. (Most other makers use a little grinding blade to finely chop the particles so they can be sent down the drain.)

Not cleaning dishes.


check if some dirt got in the arms of the washer as sometime this will slow the flow of water and not allow the pressure to clean the dishes well

Dishwasher Accumulates Water When Off


Try turning water off to dishwasher and see if it stops it. If so, replace valve. If not check for a low drain hose loop, allowing drain water from sink to back up into dishwasher. Just raise drain hose as high as possible under sink and secure.
