How to remove bosch impeller?

E-25 error and water in sump had me check the impeller on a Bosch SMU68M05AU. Found a rubber band wrapped around the impeller and the impeller shaft. I've been able to remove most of it, but some rubber band remains caught around the impeller shaft and I cannot get at it with the impeller in place, despite being a pretty handy bloke most of the time. Is there a way to clear this myself, or do I call in a service agent at this point.

    Update: after 3 hours of careful work, I was able to remove a couple of inches of rubber band. There is still some more steck behond the impeller onthe shaft from the motor, but I can't get to that and seemed to have removed enough to prevent the error code recurring. I did this using the pointed end of a steak knife to stab the 2mm of visible rubber band through the impeller blades and slowly drag it away from the centre of the impeller. Once I had enough rubber band exposed, I could grab it with fine-nosed pliers and gently pull it, bit by bit. Tested the dishwasher overnight, works OK, but with the remaining rubber band still behind the impeller, the motor may eventually fail prematurely...

SOURCE: Bosch SHU9925UC Dishwasher Stuck in Initial Drain Cycle

OK Bosch Dw fans.........here is the fix if your SHX dishwasher is stuck on the drain cycle. This may save you a couple hundred bucks.......so listen up. There is a tendency for the very small float switch to STICK in the ON position, which will cause the drain motor to continuously run......and DISallow any other function to work. DISCONNECT POWER. Did I mention to disconnect power? Take off the front base cover....2 torx screws. Remove the other 2 torx screws in the metal clips that fasten the top of the DW to the underside of your countertop. NOW...carefull slide your DW out. You may have to disconnect your water and elec supply if you do not have enough slack to pull it out. Once the DW is out of the cabinet, remove the shiny metal cover on the LEFT side by removing a single torx screw. You will now see a small plastic assembly with a red plastic piece that moves up and down as it rides on a small red styrofoam float. This up and down movement engages a small white plastic switch visible with 3 wires coming out of it. You can carefully UNSNAP this switch out of its mount, and pull the 3 wire plug off of it. THere is a small square blue plastic tab that is supposed to easily slide in and out of the switch. If it is stuck IN, you can sometimes tap the switch and the blue tab will pop out, which is what it is supposed to do without tapping it. You can carefully with a knife blade separate the case on this switch and note the way it comes apart. Clean out any micro debris out of the small channels that the blue tab ride up and down in. Then set it in the channel while holding up the small switch tab that rides on it and see if it slides up and down without sticking! I like to take a piece of wax paper and rub in on the channel and blue tap to provide some lube for the switch to slide easily on. Now, put the switch back on and manually move the red plastic assembly up and down while you are watching the blue tab. The tab should ride up and down with the red assy. If not, buy a new switch. Google the # on the switch and order one. If the tab slides up and down, put things together in reverse order and give it a try. Hope it works for you. This should take you an hour give or take. Take the $200 you just saved and have a night out on me. ........so even though these German Appliances have a good name because of past reliability, the american tendency to value engineer them with plastic parts to reduce costs and increase profit.........just cost you an hour of your time. Will we ever learn.? ......if it ain't broke, value engineer it until it only lasts through the warranty period so you can then collect service and parts blood money from your fellow american.

SOURCE: dishwasher leaking around the bottom of the door

I had the same problem in 2004, lots of Bosch trained repair techs, calls to Bosch, and the appliance dealer we purchased it from with no answers. Our kitchen cabinet bases were ruined by the flooding that occured. After months of trying to get help I insisted on speaking to a supervisor that told me it was my fault for putting a flexible cutting board on the right side a blocking the vent. I told her that no where in the manual did it mention this issue and none of their trained techs were aware of this flaw in their design. When I asked about getting my cabinets repaired she said that was not an option. When I mentioned possible legal action her response was "good luck with that". Here it is 2009 and they recently called about a possible fire hazard recall for the control panel. The Bosch trained tech that came out to complete the repair knew nothing about the vent/flooding issue.

SOURCE: I have a bosch dishwash e15 check water

I found this solution on elsewhere on fixya. it relates to a little float switch designed to detect water leaks I think. 1. turn off power and water 2. tilt back machine about 45% (have towels ready to soak up any spill off 3. when all the water has emptied, right machine and retry. if the problem keeps reoccurring, you may have a genuine water leak. I had to try a few times but this worked for me and saved me at least 4 days of hand washing over a long weekend. good luck

SOURCE: Large blue band appeared on lower tray following wash cycle,

So. We had the same problem tonight and I have been sitting lookin at this thing for an hour and decided to run it and see what happened with no rubber band in there. After the cycle was over I noticed that my wife washes those "snap wear" containers in the dishwasher and these items have colored coated Mylar bands as sealers. When they heat they expand and can be dislodged. It was a coincidence that it wrapped itself around the bottom spinner. Myth debunked!!!!!

I keep getting E22 warning


E22 is residual water in sump, this could be blocked pump, dirty filter, grease build up. If you have removed white pump cover to check for blockages, ensure that it is completely clipped back into position before trying again. The non return valve maybe allowing dirty water to drain back into the machine. If you tend to run a quick wash a lot, you may need to boil a kettle and pour it into the sump to clear any build up from around the optical sensor in the sump. Post if you need further assistance

Water does not empty from the draws DD605SS


The pump may have something lodged in the impeller and will not allow it to pump. To access the pump, the drawer must be removed and turned 90 degrees to the left. Unplug the wire harness to the pump. Loosen the clamp on the drain hose and then remove 3 screws holding the pump. I've found rubber bands wrapped around the impeller.

I have a Bosch free standing dishwasher (can't find the model #) that doesn't drain the used water when finished. Are there any diagrams that I can access to check how to remove and check the drain?


just remove the screen from inside you will see a torx screw to the left side of the sump remove it. pull the protective cover of the drain pump impeller. once removed you can see if anything is in the drain. if the impeller seems fine you eithe have a bad drain pump or something is in your drain between the dishwasher and the sink clogged.

Bosch dishwasher will not drain - causing moldy odor


Hello Mimhoff it depends on how much water is down there. The sump area always has a little water in it to prevent the circulation pump seals from sticking. Usually around 1 to 2 inches. If there is more than that, check the slots at the bottom of the sump on the left side for being clogged and check the end of the drain hose to make sure it is clear. If you are getting a moldy/odor from the dishwasher, try running Dishwasher Magic or Tang thru the dishwasher. This will remove any build up of food or detergent from the dishwasher. If you are running the dishwasher every few days and just scraping your dishes, then either leave the door ajar or run the rinse & hold cycle to help keep the odor down. Bosch doesn't reccommend running bleach thru the dishwasher as this can cause damage to the rubber seals. However 2 tablespoons of bleach once a year won't hurt.
