Diswasher Leaked, now Won't Work

Hi, Our Bosch has run without trouble for six years, but yesterday I discovered a puddle outside it and the machine in an endless growl. I think that's the pump trying to remove water, but the dishwasher was almost dry. Dishes were clean. Now the machine merely growls whenever I turn the power on. Buttons appear to work to start a new cycle, but as soon as I shut the door the growl is back and no water enters. Any advice on simple things this mere homeowner can do to check out and possible fix the trouble? Thanks.

If you see a float inside of the dishwasher make sure its cleaned well.that float tells the control board when to drain and to fill with water.the symptom you descibe tells me its trying to drain,make sure the float moves freely.if you dont have a float you will see a metal probe clean that up as well.try this and if it doesnt fix the sensor may be part of the drain body and it has failed(leaking).

Bosch diswasher,model Sms68m02AU trips circuit breaker

rcd units trip from the milliamps that are in a short
it trips the rcd to prevent electrocution and acts in nano seconds besides being a circuit breaker for excessive current
the trip can be from moisture allowing a current leakage to ground or some other simple operation
I suggest that you get in a qualified electrician / bosch service technician to find the reason for the problem rcd

Remove the drain hose and check if you have any residual into it. After 11 years your appliance may need a thourought cleaning.
Check also if the pump has enough pressure.

I have a problem that appears to be a bad motor on a Whirlpool dishwasher. The motor costs $300 and the dishwasher is about 6 years old...Does it make sense to replace the motor or just replace the...

Hello, W/D here.
I try to work replacement vs. repair like this:
If the cost of repair is greater than 50% of replacement, I always go for the replacement. My reasoning is that the remainder of the appliance is more likely to develop faults, and a new one is less likely to be trouble.
My 50% rule can go down lower if I have already had any trouble with the machine, or if it has significant age on it.
In my opinion, your case is right on the bubble.
I have replaced motor/pump components, only to have the pump go out again after six months ($200). When faced with another $200 for the same repair on the same machine (with me doing the work), it became too much to bear. I elected at that point to replace it. You very well may get another six years out of your dishwasher, but then again, you may not. In the next six years, other things may break. If you feel like your machine will be serviceable for the next six years after making your repair, then go for it. On the other hand, a new machine will have a warranty, and an extended warranty will be offered at extra cost.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that you could go either way in my equation, and still be OK, probably. Let your feelings guide you, and you'll make the right decision.
Best regards, (and let me know what you decide), --W/D--
