Question about Bosch Dishwashers

1 Answer

My Bosch 52dBa dishwasher used to complete auto wash in about 100 mins. But suddenly jumped to 138. Normal wash (which I never much used before) is still timed at 99 minutes. Found and cleaned filter and removeable grille on floor of machine, changed back to gel detergent. Water is nice and hot, dishes coming clean. Why such a suddenly long cycle time? Machine is two years old, replacing six year old Kenmore that CAUGHT FIRE on Christmas Eve. That machine was an orphan stuck in the midst of a long list of machines recalled for potentially catching fire. No joy from Sears, no joy from Whirlpool. Shame, shame, shame... But back to my Bosch. Any ideas?

There must be a problem in the control panel, they are about $200 so I would live with it.

SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher Wont clean properly

Poor cleaning is generally caused by not having enough water in the tub, which is usually the fault of the water inlet valve. You mentioned cleaning the filters... which filters? Did you remove the valve and clean its screen/filter? If that screen gets clogged with debris (and they do) it'll choke off the water supply to the tub.

SOURCE: Bosch Exxcel Auto Option/Detergent tablet does not dissolve?

It seem that your DW drain it's water by syphon action. Check if the drain hose is properly installed as a U shape; otherwise the DW can drain itself at any time, leaving the soap undissolved .

SOURCE: DIshwasher Cycle TIme INcreases by 20 minutes over two years

Try cutting the breaker off for 5 min, This will reset the control. The issue is in order for a dishwasher to clean the dishes properly the water in the dishwasher needs to be at least 120 deg f. If its not the dishwasher keeps adding more time with the heater on to try to achieve this temp. The dishwasher only uses about 1 gallon of water per fill so if the water heater is a ways away or the temp is not hot enough, the water temp in the dishwasher will not reach 120.

My dishwasher suddenly won't wash hot on either the normal auto setting nor the eco one.


Do you find water left in the dishwasher bottom at cycle end???? It sound like your drain line is partially or completely blocked or possibly a bad drain pump depending on model. If it can't drain completely it can't refill with hot water. That will also explain an increase in the cycle time. Some dishwasher add time because it is trying to heat the water up. Its a loosing battle if the water isn't partially hot to begin with.

Bosch silence plus 50 dba has error code h01


The statement below can be found at: http://www.ehow.com/list_6978265_bosch-dishwasher-error-codes.html,

The SHU4326 and 4326 models use "Regular Wash" and "Rinse Hold" to begin the test while the other three series in this section use "Scrub Wash" and "Delicate/Econo," but all use the same set of fault codes, shown not as lights but as numbers on the Cycle Countdown display. Here, 1 is an aqua sensor fault, 2 is a heating fault, 4 is a filling fault, 8 is an NTC fault and 0 means that everything is working as it ought. During an actual wash, when you aren't testing, the Cycle Countdown display may show the letter "F," which also signifies a filling fault.

Dishwasher instructions


Hello, welcome to Fixya.

Typically the "normal" wash cycle should be sufficient and take anywhere from 60min to 120min. under normal conditions. ( Though 120 mins is quite long and should only occur if you had a low hot water supply, i.e. many people showering at the same time ).

The one variable in this is "normal". These machines when connected normal or proper should have a hot water supply and a heating capacity of 2 degrees per minute until reaching 150 degrees.

The other "tip" to consider is the numbers in the display ( depending on the model...not all have led displays ) is not actual time, just estimated time based on the previous cycle.

If you select a normal wash and run the hot water tap at your sink before starting the machine and it still takes in excess of 2.5 - 3hrs. to complete, there's likely a heating problem.

Let me know and we can go from there. The B/S/H/ ( Bosch, Thermador, Gaggenau & Siemens ) dishwasher's have had some issue with the heater relay on the control boards dating back to the early to mid 90's. Just browse through the bosch dishwasher problems and solutions under my profile... http://www.fixya.com/myprofile/solutionsfiltered.aspx?ctgid=131&usrid=3604823

and you'll see what I mean.

Thank you for visiting "fixya", please take a moment and rate the info I provided for you here and also let me know if you require any further assistance.

Good luck.

Bosch exxcel multi programme ....programme gets to 1 min and then stays there. on the quick cycle on the auto cycle it gets to 60 min then returnsto 140min on the timer... thankyou


this is caused by incorrect water levels the appliance takes in too little water at final rinse and generates erro code 1 this is what you are getting it isnt 1 minute to go it will need the dishwasher equivalent of colonic irrigation several tubes will be full of fatty deposits,using the quick wash a lot will make this happen more often you will need an engineer to sort but shouldnt need any parts.

Bosch SHU5318: Water wont start washing


if it hums when you are in the wash phase then something is jamming the wash impeller like broken glass tooth pick found a necklace in one one time i think replacing the control board fixed the other problems on most washers the drain pump is separate from the wash motor haven't worked on bosch so not sure take off the lower spray arm and go down till you get to the impeller then do what you have to do clear it or replace wash motor
