Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Kitchenaid dishwasher (nearly new) does not fill with water

It apparently runs through cycle though water is barely visible at bottom of pan, but well below heating coil, barely above drain grate. poured in a large pot of water and fooled it into completing cycle (if I do that it runs ok), and repeated. It fills same way (level) each time -- very low not enough water to run but it runs anyway. This has caused not enough pressure to clean the dishes, or even melt the soap powder. It has worked that way for many months, barely cleaning most of dishes, but far from acceptable. Float moves freely, but water is nowhere near even the bottom of the float/switch. can the water running in too slowly be a problem? Thought the switch would sense level before cycle started,but it is not even getting that far. Thanks

Agree 100 pct. After close inspection of the float assembly I passed on its removal and opted for the very high tech solution of using the top of a spray paint can as the overflow drippage receptor. It does evaporate within 24 hours.

We may try another soap when we run out of the Electrosol tabs we have.

SOURCE: where is the float on bosch silver edition?

Hi, This model could well have two systems that will let it fill. One will be on the left hand side as you look at the dishwasher which will require you to remove the side panel. Start with this first as if it is the later version then it will be in the bottom of the dishwasher which will require you to remove the side panels to get to it. The switch in the first method will be a small micro swith and the other will be a large pressure switch located in the bottom. I would think it will be the first method.
Look at it and let me know how you get on.

SOURCE: it doesn't start and clean light flashes

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

SOURCE: the top rack dishes are not getting clean.

does this have the water conduit tube going up the inside of the rear wall where you can see it,if so,the conduit "horn" where it connects to the tube that feeds water to the upper arm with repeatedly opening and closing this horn wears out and lets water get past here and lowers water pressure to the upper arm

What is the correct water level in a kitchenaid dishwasher?


There is a float inside, the float should be nearly to the shut off position when the dishwasher is full. If it isn't add water until it's about 2 inches deep, or within 1/2 inch of overlowing the front of the dishwasher. Run a cycle and see if your dishes are cleaner. If so, then the likely problem is with the water pump. Take this off, clean all screens and soak in Lime-Away or something similar and reinstall. In all probabilty if the dishwasher doesn't fill, there is dirt in the pump screen or buildup in the pump itself. If this does not fix the water level, then a new pump may be necessary (around $20-$40 on eBay).

My dishwasher is filled with water and won't drain


Hi



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.

Dishwasher has water on the bottom after the cycle is completed. May not be draining properly.

Water doesn't fill after 50-60 secs of valve


Float valve is not used in normal cycle, it is a failsafe method. Energy conservation issues dictated less water during washing.

My dishwasher starts fills water and never starts wash cycle?


If you hear a hum when it should be washing, the motor has seized. Replace motor. If it fills with water and stops quite, run it through a test using the tech sheet under the bottom panel to access. These dishwasher have had issues with the motor.

Panel lit and motor running but will not cylce


It's almost certainly the case that something has started leaking in the bottom of the dishwasher (a seal or hose) and has filled the bottom catch pan with water. There is a float in the pan which will trip the unit into a mode where the pump turns on to flush out all the water inside the unit to avoid overflowing the pan and causing much more damage (to the subfloor and anything on lower stories or basement). As long as you have the unit turned on, the pump will run to flush out water. Until the catch pan is purged or enough water dries up.
At any rate, somebody needs to look at why the catch pan is filling up with water.
