Check your airgap by the faucet of your sink. usually a metal cylinder is the cap. then you might have tabs to press in, or the top of the airgap can unscrew. usually i find stuff in there. mostly fishbones.. otherwise make sure the holes towards the bottem left of your dishwasher tub under your filters arnt clogged up. sometimes calcium gets in there a clogs those holes to the drain pump.

if no airgap then check that hole to the disposer. reach your finger in there towards where the dishwasher drain line is coming in and make sure that isnt clogged up.

Water coming back into bosch dishwasher

Check the drain hose that goes into sink cabinet. It should loop up as high as it can go so that water from the sink or disposal doesn't siphon back into dw.

Bosch wfl2000 machine works on every cycle apart from spin, washes drains etc but wont spin. Cheched brushes and removed and had motor tested all ok, belt fine, any ideas- Controller!!

are you sure its heating the water as it will not complete the wash cycle if the heater has failed, hence not getting to the spin cycle. try testing heater or see if water is warm coming out or glass warms up

Water is left when cycle is finished


Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat.

Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Water left after finishing wash

I have a Bosch Dishwasher and the E-Nr is SGS4362EU/03. The machine is approximately 4 years old, in good condition and has been working very well. Suddenly, there is water remaining after it completes a 50 degrees C wash cycle. This is also evident with the pre wash cycle and the 65 degrees wash cycle.

I have checked and cleaned the filters. I have loosened the internal pump white cover (Torx T 20 screw) and checked for any physical blockage - none. I have also checked for any drainage hose kinks - none.

I have tried a series of empty washes and the machine drains the water during the wash cycles. The dishes are also have a dull colour and show show signs of not being properly rinsed during the wash cycle.

Please assist.

My washer stops!

You should check and clean the outgoing water screen to make sure your washer can drain properly. Sounds like you have a restriction in your system.. could be a filter screen or the pump itself. Try the screen first and then cycle a load of wash without any clothes in it to see if it empties the drum completely.
Hope that helps...

Bosch shu5315 06

it sounds as though the circulating pump may not be operating. if so fault is often due to the pump capacitor being faulty and this is a cheap part.
