    I have the same problem. It appears the machine is not as hot as it used to be. Also all cycles are now over 2 hours long and on all occasions the last minute on the display runs the machine in upwards of an hour.

SOURCE: Dishwasher Drying Problem

rinse agent is essential and best to use seperate detergent and rinse aid and not the combined tablets. if you live in a hard water area, essential also to use salt. the dishwasher will dry quite well - it relies on the last rinse being hot and then the water just evaporates. most dishwashers work like that but some turn on the element for short periods during dry.

SOURCE: Dishwasher not drying

Same problem here. I read the manual very carefully. "OptiDry", "ExtraDry", "EcoDry", "condensation drying" -- lots of fancy words to cover the simple fact -- they DO NOT DRY the dishes. There is no heating element. I wish they would just state this up-front. Air drying the dishes for 24 hours after each wash is not workable for most users...

SOURCE: my bosch exxcel dishwasher will not drain after wash cycle

That is because the water level switch activated by the floating sensor is stuck.

You probably need to have the water level switch replaced.

You can find parts on websites below:

SOURCE: Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water

your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

SOURCE: Bosch SHX33A runs continuously. Never finishes cycle.

I have a guide here to walk you through the process of clearing the drain system. You most likely have a clog somewhere and the dishwasher can't proceed because it would cause it to flood.

Bosch Dishwasher Model # SHU53E02UC/14 started running about 3 times longer than it should and its not cleaning very well.


If the Rinse cycles completes within the normal time, but other cycles are slow - particularly a Heavy or Super Scrub cycle - it is most likely that the water heating is not happening or is very slow. The control will not advance (proceed) the cycle until the temperature sensor signals the control board that the water temperature is correct. Otherwise the control will wait, indefinitely, for the heating to happen. This also affects cleaning and drying performance. Loose wire connectors, bad heater, bad temperature sensors or a bad controller are possibilities.

Water not heating up and not drying


Hello

If your dishwasher is not heating properly, troubleshoot the issue. You can often repair this problem and eliminate service fees.

Incoming Water
Most manufacturers recommend that the water coming into your dishwasher be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too cold, then your dishes don't clean properly. Or the dishwasher must run longer to heat up the water. Test the water temperature by running the hot water on your faucet for about 2 minutes or until it gets really hot. Place a waterproof thermometer under the water. If the water is too cold, increase the water temperature setting on your water heater.

Thermostat
The thermostat is responsible for regulating the water and drying cycle temperature. If this thermostat isn't working, the heating element at the base of the dishwasher tub may not come on. Test this element by selecting the hottest temperature setting. Run the dishwasher on the shortest cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and open it up. If the dishwasher water is not hot or the drying cycle isn't starting, order a new thermostat from a parts dealer since this component is difficult to fix.


Heating Element/Drying Fan

The heating element heats up the water and air. Access this element by removing the bottom rack. It looks like a long black rod. If any part of this component is broken or corroded, you must order a new one. You usually cannot fix this element. The drying fan is located in the main housing of the dishwasher, and it blows air around your dishes to dry them. Check this part by disconnecting the dishwasher from the power supply and opening up the housing. Examine the fan, and see if any dirt or debris is preventing it from moving. Clean it. If the fan won't turn at all or if the motor is burnt out, order a new fan since it's difficult to repair this part.

Additional Concerns

If your dishwasher isn't drying your dishes properly, see if you have selected a heated drying cycle. An air drying cycle doesn't completely dry your dishes. Never overload the dishwasher, as this prevents heat from circulating around your dishes, keeping them from drying properly. Plastic and Teflon dishes don't usually completely dry. You must towel-dry these items.

What does a thermometer symbol with up arrow mean on an shx68


Hello Jsg5,

That symbol means that the dishwasher is heating the water, bringing it up to the required temperature to properly sanitize your dishes.

This symbol can appear during the wash and rinse cycles. It is nothing to worry about. Most dishwasher will heat up the wash and rinse water, it's just that Bosch decided to add an indicator, so users would know that any delay in the wash/rinse cycle, is a result of getting the water up to the proper temperature (typically around 140 degrees F)

Even if you've got your hot water heater or hot water supply set to a very low temperature, the dishwasher will use the built-in heating element (the drying element in the bottom of the dishwasher) to heat the water.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

The water does not heat up and the dishes do not dry


A dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif that suddenly stops going through the cycles or never completely dry dishes probably has a faulty thermostat. The thermostat controls the heating elements for water and drying. If the thermostat is stuck, the dishwasher won't go to the next cycle because the minimum water temperature requirement is never met. Drying dishes also requires the temperature to get high enough to do the job.
  1. Step 1 Remove the front plate of the dishwasher and locate the thermostat. If the thermostat is not located in the front of the unit pull the dishwasher out and remove the back access panel.
  2. Step 2 Disconnect any wires or other parts that are in the way. Separate the wires with a flat blade screwdriver carefully to keep the wires from breaking.
  3. Step 3 Take out the screws attaching the thermostat to the firewall and remove it from the dishwasher. Verify the replacement part matches the original, including the wire connector.
  4. Step 4 Place the new thermostat into place and secure it with the screws. Connect the wires and replace any parts or cables. Attach the front or back plate and replace any molding.
  5. Step 5 Run a hot water cycle and verify the water is heating and the cycle is able to complete. Check the drying cycle and prepare the first load of dishes.

Dishes are still damp after cycle is complete. This causes a bad odor in the dishwasher.


Bad odor is caused by something besides wet dishes.

When the water finishes it's part and is exhausted, does a fan come on and run for a long time? If not, the drying fan is bad, usually mounted on the side and runs after all the water is removed. Also, after the water stops, are the dishes and inside HOT? You have to have HOT water to make a dishwasher function properly, will also take care of some of that odor. When a dishwasher cycles, it washes and then heats the inside of the washer, then it runs a fan to remove the water and dry the dishes.

Make sure your dishwasher is hooked to the HOT water line and also check to be sure it can heat it's own water, put it on pot's and pans and it should heat the water quite hot, even if it has hot water coming in, it will heat it up some more.

Running time of dishwasher


he cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. 

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Cycle not completing See "The cycle doesn't complete" section. 

The cycle doesn't complete If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.


  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.


Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

I see an error code
If your dishwasher has a digital readout and you see an error code, it may indicate a problem with the unit. If this happens, look up the error code in your owner's manual to find out what the problem is.

Good Luck

I have a Bosch SHV55M03GB dishwasher which does not heat the water. The programme cycle also sticks at the last minute. Any ideas, heater element or control panel? Thanks.


If cycle proceed normally after waiting for a while, then the control is probably OK. It stands by a while because it does not read correct temperature before proceeding.

If the appliance is connected to both hot and cold water, open more the hot water faucet.

If the water is not heating at all, check heating element for continuity, using a tester.

If water is heating regularly, but cycle is still slow, check thermic sensor.

Here are more suggestions from Repairclinic:

The cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating

Just bought a Bosch dishwasher and we were told that they have no heating mechanism to dry the dishes, which is why they are more energy efficient.  You are supposed to leave the door closed for at least one hour after the cycle is complete.  The heat that has built up inside during the wash cycle will dry the dishes.  It is also recommended to always use JetDry. If you follow this advice, the dishes will come out fine.
