How do we remove the horrible smell in our Bosch dishwasher?


First check out your model to see if it has a built in garbage disposal, if so, make sure it is not mucked up.
Run hot water down your sink drain while running the sinks garbage disposal. Pour baking soda down your sink garbage disposal followed by white vinegar. Let it sit and foam. Run hot water down sink disposer while running. When finished:
Run empty dishwasher with no soap, let dishwasher fill with hot water to wash and then pour 1 cup of white vinegar into the bottom and resume wash. Make sure you take it through the dry cycle. When finished, open dishwasher and let it air for a couple of hours, longer if you live in humid area. Hope these steps do the trick.

When dishwasher is emptying it is backing into sink


there is probably nothing wrong with Dishwasher itself.
Your Sink drain is stopped up or your Garbage disposal is clogged.
usually, dishwasher drain is connected to the Garbage Disposal, but if the dishwasher empties the water into the Garbage disposal, if its clogged then water will come out of the sink. Same if sink is clogged between sink and sewer.


If you fill up your sink and then water drains away, then you know your sink itself is not the problem. If its only the Garbage disposal side that does not drain, its the garbage disposal that is clogged.

Our sink and garbage disposal was clogged up. We got the sink unclogged, but the dishwasher had dirty water in the bottom and won't drain.


Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.

Good luck!

We bought a new dishwasher because the old one wasn't draining all the way. Same problem with the new one?


The pump is a motor which runs in one direction to spray water in the dishwasher to clean and the opposite direction to drain the water. The problem could be from a clog or kink in the drain hose. Several years ago the drain line would connect to the sink garbage disposal. If the garbage disposal is not draining or the dishwasher connection to the garbage disposal is restricted or clogged the dishwasher will not drain. Under the sink, look at the garbage disposal to see if a rubber hose is connected at the side of the disposal unit. If a hose is connected to the side of the disposal, remove the hose clamp and check for any restrictions from garbage in the inlet or hose. You can use a screwdriver to clean the fitting to the garbage disposal and a wire hanger to free any restrictions in the hose. If the dishwasher does not connect to the garbage disposal it should connect to the sink trap. This is more common with new dishwashers because they have built-in disposals. Disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and the dishwasher and look for a clog at the sink connection. The dishwasher inlet should have an angled piece of plastic or metal facing downward to prevent the waste from the dishwasher from spraying up into the sink. Do not get to aggressive with the cleaning in order to prevent breaking the angled piece of plastic or metal. Look for any kinks in the hose and try to run water through the hose, but do not use the sink which you removed the drain line from or it could leak under the cabinet. If you see a bad kink replace the hose with a new one. I hope this works and you find the problem without a great deal of time or trouble.

The garbage disposal has a slow drip from the bottom, can this be fixed?


If the garbage disposal is rusted out, then it can't be fixed.

My first instinct is to check other sources of leaking water first.
Maybe you have checked, and the following information is not necessary.

Here's some things to do:
1) Fill the sink without letting any water down into the disposal.
Let the water stand in the sink for a while.
Do you see any water dripping?
If you see water, then that tells you the putty seal at the sink strainer is leaking.
Pull out disposal, remove old putty and replace with ample amount of plumber's putty.

2) Next suspect is where the tailpiece connects to side of disposal.
The tailpiece lets the water flow out of disposal
The tailpiece is usually sealed with a rubber gasket
This rubber gasket can leak
Take it apart. Is the rubber part wet on the outside?
You might be able to buy another rubber gasket... but not likely ...
Good news: you can also seal up this kind of gasket using Rectoseal
Rectoseal is a brand name for a gooey pipe joint compound.
I like it because it's so gooey, and you smear in on with a bush that comes with the can.
Cover the outside of rubber gasket with plenty of rectoseal and then reassemble and see if leak continues.
Use Rectoseal on the washers when putting together any tubular drain pipe under the sink

3) Last suspect is the rubber hose that feeds into the garbage disposal from the dishwasher.
Does your garbage disposal leak when the dishwasher is running?
Try running dishwasher without putting any water down the sink
The rubber dishwasher hose connects to disposal with a clamp.

4) If the water leak is small, I use klenex tissue as a tester.
Tissue shows the smallest amount of water
Put the tissue on a damp area and it shows on the tissue
Start at the top of disposal and work your way down until you find the origin of the water.

Hope we saved you a dollar.

Water is coming out of air flow gap. I installed a new air-flow gap and all new lines from air flow gap to sink (except the line from dishwasher to air flow gap) and i still have water coming out the air...


The leak in an air gap is usually caused by a clogged sink discharge line. Most of the time this is connected to the garbage disposal and there is food particulate in the drain hole where the dishwasher drain from the air gap to the garbage disposal connects.

Pull the sink connection hose off and clean the hole thoroughly. You can try testing the dishwasher/ air gap by placing the disconnected hose into a bucket during the pump out period. It should not leak. After this test...reconnect the hose to the sink connection.

If it is NOT connected to the garbage disposal then remove the hose and clean out the hole where the connection is made. This is a common problem and easily resolved by the user.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 2004-05 Bosch dishwasher SHU43C. The motor is running, but it is not pumping water. Is there a belt in this? What do I need to look at to check out this problem?


I just paid $200 because I had the same problem and couldn't figure out what the issue was. My problem was the water in the bottom of the dishwasher couldn't be pumped out completely because the disharge line was clogged (only a little) from food that backflowed into it from my sink. The repair man cleared that out and now it works like new. The ultimate issue is that I have a garbage disposal and the dishwasher discharge line goes directly into the pipe above the garbage disposal, so if food/water is in the sink, it can flow back towards the dishwasher. I have since taped the discharge line to the top of the sink to minimize the chance for food to flow back towards the dishwasher.

Water left in dishwasher after all cycles completed.


Please check the outlet hose which is usually connected to the garbage disposal unit beneath the sink. Run the garbage disposal unit with water flowing through the sink. If this doesn't help you will have to unclog the outlet hose by either disconnecting the the end connected to the disposal unit (keep a shallow tray handy to collect any leakage).

The part by the sink causes water to flow all over the counter


Almost all dishwashers connect to the sink drain in one way or another. Many connect (via an Air Gap valve) to a garbage disposal.
If the "metal part" is at the rear of the sink, that is the top of the air gap. When water comes out of it, that means the drain is plugged.
If there is a garbage disposal, does water drain through it? Does the disposal work?
If there is no disposal, does water from the faucet run through the drain of each sink with no problem?
Thanks for answering these questions in a reply.

Dble sink, one with the garbage disp. won't drain standing water


It's a drain clog within the disposal. Try a drain cleaner, if no luck, you will likely need to replace it.
