Bosch dishwasher pump keeps running

I recently had to pull my Bosh out from under the counter to level it. Since I have placed it back under the counter (now level), the drain pump runs continously when the machine is on and the machine will not start a cycle. I found what I believe to be a float trigger for the basin underneath. When I activate that float, the pump sound changes, but continues to run. If I pour water into the machine, it discharges it without a problem, but the pump doesn't shut off. I pulled the door and slightly cocked it to one side on accident when moving it. When I closed the door, a small piece of plastic fell from one hinge point(right side.) The piece was not recognizeable. Is there some kind of switch I may have damaged?

SOURCE: drain pump won't turn off


The reason the drain pump continously runs is because it is trying to remove any water too avoid any further flood as there is a flood in the base of the unit which activates the float switch and constantly activates the drain pump until the water has gone. Isolate the unit at the power switch and remove the bottom panel under the door panel. Dry up the water as best possible with a towel. Run the unit again and check for any water leaks. You may just have over sudded the unit with too much detergent. Only use 2 teaspoons of powder. To start with while testing don't use any detergent. Good luck

Hope this helps.

How I get to the drain pump to check if blocked on Bosh Logixx Variodrawer dishwasher please.

Pull the inlet hose off the drain pump to check for clogs. If this goes into a garbage disposal back flush the pump with a pressurized water source will also work. This means removing the unit from the house of course. Do you hear the drain pump running after a cycle completes?

I have a Haier HWD1600 washer dryer combo that I am getting an error 2 on. It will not drain the water out and I have not been able to clear it for the past two months

Its a common error,
Error message:Drain error, water can be not drained fully within the required drain time
Reason 1. Pump filter is blocked.
Solution 1. Please open and clean the pump filter. (Filter access door is on the bottom right, at floor level of the washing machine)
Step 1.Push a flat blade screwdriver into the slot on the filter cover and pull it open ,do not use excessive force.(Fig 1).
Step 2.Remove the rubber hose from its clip and stand a suitable container under it, remove the bung to drain the water (Fig 2-3)
Step 3.Replace the bung and fit it back into its clip (Fig 4-5).
Step 4. Unscrew the filter and rinse it under running water, replace it and close the flap(Fig 6-7-8).
1. The filter must be in place during operation, ensure it is in place after cleaning to avoid leakage.
2.Place a container under the drain pump filter, to collect any excess water that may come out of the drain pump when the filter is removed.

Reason 2. Drain hose end is higher than 100cm above the floor level.
Solution 2. Please adjust the height of drain hose to 80-100cm above the floor.

Reason 3. Drain hose is blocked or twisted.
Solution 3. Please check and clean the drain hose for blockage.

Reason 4. Drain hose is too long, or water is back filling from waste water pipes.
Solution 4. Remove any extension to the original drain hose.
Ensure the highest part of the drain hose is nearest the washing machine.Check the waste water pipes in the building are clear of any obstructions and flow freely.

E15 i want reset it ?

If this is a Bosch dishwasher, the E15 error indicates water in the base of the unit. You need to unplug the dishwasher and pull it out (if it is an under-counter unit) carefully. Empty the water from the base. Sometimes tipping the unit so that the base is tilted 45 degrees from the floor will help the water flow out. Make sure that the entire base is dry.

Replace the dishwasher under the cabinet (if needed) and plug it back in. If the error repeats at the next cycle, you need to determine where the dishwasher is leaking. It could be the outlet hose, the pump or the tub. Replace the bad part. If the dishwasher is under warranty, contact Bosch.

I hope this helps.

(if you recently had a flood either under the kitchen sink or an overflow at that sink, you just need to dry the dishwasher base.)

How to fix a bosh dishwasher with E 01 code

The E01 error may mean that the water flow into the washer is restricted or that the flow meter is not reading correctly. Sometimes the control board near the washer inlet is faulty and can't read the signal from the flow meter or send that message to the control panel.

First check your shut-off for the dishwasher and make sure that it is open. Next turn the valve off and disconnect the inlet hose. Connect a new hose to the valve and position a bucket under the hose. Open the valve and check the water flow. If you have good water flow, try connecting this new hose to the inlet of the dishwasher. (Unplug the dishwasher. For an under-cabinet dishwasher, you'll need to pull the washer out. Make sure to keep the discharge hose from pulling loose. Then disconnect the old hose from the fitting and connect the new hose instead. Then slide the washer carefully back into place without pinching the hoses or cables.)

If you add a comment with the model number, I may be able to give more specific directions and replacement part information. Of course, if the dishwasher is under warranty, contact Bosch.

I hope this helps.

Bosh diswasher SHE45M02UC/48 doesnt stop when I open the door

That is the drain pump that is running, and it indicates that there is water in the base of the unit. You will need to unplug the dishwasher and pull it out. You can tip it forward to drain the water out of the bottom through the holes in front. Have some towels ready to catch the water. Now if you plug the dishwasher back in, the pump should not run But now comes the hard part - figuring out where the leak is coming from and fixing it. It could be from a hose, the drain pump, or the main pump. Bosch dishwashers are notoriously hard to work on, so I recommend calling in a professional DW repairman.

Bosh SHY56A Dishwasher - Loud Pop and Smoke While

Hey Matt,
Dishwashers are not that complicated.. Turn off the breaker, pull the machine out - away from the wall..(there will/should be at lest two screws in the top edge holding it to the counter.. remove them first.. then pull it out until you can turn off the water supply.. When you are able to completely remove the washer, you should be able (possibly)to see what happened.. Check to see if the washer arm (inside the washer) will turn, if not.. replace the motor.., check to see if the pump belt will turn?.. it could be the pump drive motor or the pump its self..(remove the belt), then see if the motor will turn, check to see if the pump will turn.
.. White smoke makes me think that the belt was turning and the pump NOT turning..that will cause the belt to smoke.. and smell like burning rubber..If the pump will not turn. you have found t he problem... Also ..Check to make sure there is not a knife or some other object lodged in the drain or pump
NOW -- With all this.. Sometimes REPLACING the machine is actually cheaper than repairing the old one!!! Your wife deserves a NEW one!!

This is a common problem with this pump. The only solution is to replace the pump
assembly. The price is between 75 and 100 dollars for the pump (usually).
This motor also had issues with the fins breaking off and becoming lodged
in the motor itself. The replacement is pretty straightforward but you must remove
the dishwasher from under the counter first. Hope this helps.

I believe that it's on the front bottom right side of the machine. Press the tab down and open the little door and you'll see a hose and a circular cover. You need to place a little towel on the floor and a shallow pan. Pull the drain hose out just about 6 inches and pull off the end plug. This will drain the remaining water in the washer. Put the cap back on the hose and tuck it back into place. Unscrew the round cover and pull which will be the filter. Should be clogged and rinse out the filter at the faucet and reinstall. That should do the trick.
