Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU66C02 / SHU66C06 Built-in Dishwasher
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.
