My Bosch dischwasher is not draining completely. I've taken out the mesh filter and the square plastic drain cover. Should I unbolt the white cover which I presume covers the drain? thanks!

I had the same problem, twice. Both times, the technician simply removed the drain hose and cleared it of a small food particle. Save yourself the service charge by unhooking the hose yourself, clearing it and rinsing your dishes THOROUGHLY before washing.

My Bosch dishwasher is failing to clean anything and there's guck and residue on everything. I've cleaned the filter repeatedly to no avail. HELP!


It needs a thorough cleaning, the "guck" is your problem. Do not use liquid, it will make it worse. The "squares" are also detrimental. BOSCH engineered this machine to function best using loose powder. Remove all screens and use a calcium or lime scale remover with water very very hot, like from a coffee pot and run it empty a few times.

Water is clogged in the bottm of the unit. how do I clear the drain?


Hi,

The drain filter is clearly visible at the bottom of the wash compartment but there are several possibilities as to why there is still water in the bottom of your washer:

1. Blocked drain filter
At the bottom of the wash compartment, there is a fine mesh grille and a plastic cylinder which protrudes from it. Grip the plastic cylinder, twist anti-clockwise and pull it upwards. To clean it, remove any debris from the cylinder, rinse then replace in reverse order of the above.

2. Blocked/kinked waste hose
Check the waste outflow hose at the back of the washer for any kinks or other damage. Also remove the hose where it attaches to your sink (or waste outlet) and check for any blockages.

3. Blocked waste disposal / sink trap / waste outflow
Make sure your sink is draining efficiently. Clean as necessary

4. Faulty waste pump
If all of the above check out, you may have a faulty pump. Please post back for further advice regarding this after completing the above checks.

Regards,
BElectric

How can I access the floater that allows water to drain


Do you meen filter? its in the bottom of the dishwasher under the bottom propeller. turn the plastic collar under the bottom propeller anticlockwise then lift it up and out then you can lift out the mesh filter. the other type has a winged collar that you turn then lift up then there is two filters in that to clean.

DISHWASHER DRAINING POORLY


Check to see if you have a plugged, kinked, drain hose or screen. Do you know how to disassemble the bottom of the diswasher to get access to the drain hose? Also, is the dishwasher drain and hose properly vented?

Siemans dishwasher not draining


the water in the bottem of the machine under the mesh filter is normal. it acts as a lubricant for both motor impeller and drain propeller. if its greasy then try using only 1 tablespoon of powder soap from now on. now if the water level is ever above the mesh filter after a complete cycle, then you have a drain problem

WATER DOESNT DRAIN


I had the same problem. I took out the filter and cleaned it, scooped out as much water as I could and poured some sink unblocker into the bottom of the washer, followed by some hot water. After leaving it a while I took the plastic mesh cover off, and removed and cleaned all the bits I could (will be different on different washers). Then I put it all back together and ran a quick wash, and it worked. I did a couple more washes with it empty in case there was any cleaner still lurking. Result - one unblocked (and sparkly clean!) dishwasher. Hope this helps!

Sink was pluged plunged and now the dischwasher will not fill it's keeping draining the water out all the time


Bosch has a safety float switch under the dishwasher basin. If water leaks into this area, the float rises and turns on the drain pump to clear out the water in the dishwasher. Hope I explained that ok :)
Anyways, usually a leak somewhere causes this and unless the leak is fixed and water is removed or evaporates, the dishwasher will remain in the drain cycle.

Hello Ramona Doug,
Try disconnecting power from your dishwasher for a few minutes to clear the memory and then reapply power again. Start a wash cycle without dishes on the hottest water setting and after a few minutes.. pause the wash and add a few cups of white vinegar to the wash water.,. that will help break up deposits in the system.. See if that gets you going properly.

Dischwasher will not drain


Does your dishwasher run during wash cycle? then,
Check drain hose by try this, loose the clip that hold your drain hose firmly from your dishwasher side, check carefully if no debris blocked the hose connector, water suppose to come out from that connector if it does, your drain hose was blocked with debris or mold and particles like coffee seeds etc.removed them connect the hose back run the dishwasher.

If that does not solve your problem check under your dishwasher, there's a timer activated drain solenoid that opens a drain valve to drain the wash water through a hose.
Replace it.
