Bosch SHU53A dischwasher runs continuously without water

I have a Bosch SHU53A dishwasher installed 5/04. When I ran it before bedtime, I woke up the next morning to find it still running. Problem is it never sprayed any water! The motor ran all night but it never washed the dishes. Bosch web site and user manuals have NO troubleshooting information. Can you help please? Amy

    I had already called a repair technician to come fix the dishwasher for $115. This response outlined everything the repair person went over with me. Obviously, this person knows a lot about Bosch dishwashers!!! Thank you.

Check and see if there is water in the base by removing the toe kick. if so then it activated your float micro switch. clear the water from the base. i use a wet vac, but if you don't have one just soak it up with towels. once that styrofoam piece on the left side of the base isnt submerged in water anymore then it should start. it could be a broken hose or bad part. check hoses if you have a rat or mouse lingering. otherwise i have also seen flexable cutting boards blocking the condensation hole on the inside of the tank on the right wall. if you think it was that then just keep those flexy cutting boards on the left side or top rack.

if no water is down there.. then where that styrofoam piece sets on the left side. find that red plastic rod and flip it upward a few times to un-stick the float switch with the dishwasher unplugged first of course.

    I have a Bosch dishwasher SHU53A. I have spent more repairing the dishwasher than it originally cost. Now I think the water pump must be broken or the motor is burned up. No water comes into the unit and it only makes a vibrating noise. Deliver me from ever buying another Bosch product!.

Same problem as Mar. 19,2009. My Bosch runs and won't shut off, but there IS water in it. It emptied the soap dispenser and washes and washes and never stops. Please tell me what I can troubleshoot.

No water in the dishwasher Bosch SHX43M02-48. We turned of the water and forgot to turn it back on and ran the dishwasher. Now the it will not let water in?


Hi, By the information you've supplied, I'd guess you burnt out the coil in the water/fill valve by running it without a water supply to the valve. Are there any other unusual symptom's or error codes ? i.e. drain pump running none stop ? Can you put water into the tub manually and run a rinse cycle without issue ? In any event the valve is pretty inexpensive, usually about $30 or so. The part # 425458 works on all bosch, thermador, gaggenau, and siemens dishwasher built since the early to mid 90's up to present day. Hope this was helpful to you. Thanks for visiting "fixya" today. Good luck. macmarkus :)

I have a mould problem in 5-yr-old basic model Bosch.


A service person solved our problem. We must run the kitchen tap until the water is very hot before starting the cycle. Also, he discovered the water distributor was diconnected:hence little water pressure, especially for the upper tray. I tend to rinse dishes before loading and was told not to do this. I hope this is the solution.

Bosch SHU3300 dishwasher stuck on hot water intake (w/ no power)


It sounds like the fill vlave is stuck open. This can happen if your pressure is low or if the machine is old. I would start by replacing the vlave.

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.

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.
