Try tripping the circuit breaker, leave it off for about a minute and turn back on.

I read in another post there is usually a burned PCB pad on the control board and that resoldering FIXES the dishwasher - per a repair tech. Bosch contacted us twice about a potential recall on this control board, but our serial number unit didn't show up on their list either time. Was Bosch's intent to check our unit against a recall list, or was it to remind us where to come spend $150 WHEN the control board failed. They also offered to send a repair person out but if the DW wasn't a recall situation you owed the service guy $100 just for showing up with repair parts and labor extra. Can you say racket?

Remember John Cameron Swayzee and the Timex wrist watch (mechanical no less) strapped to the boat propeller commercials. How about Bic Pen commercials where they shot a ballpoint pin through a 2x4 and it still wrote.

Smeg DI 409CA Dishwasher - Doesn't wash properly, tablet doesn't desolve and cycle lasted all night


Hi,

The first thing is have a look at the instruction manual from HERE

If the dishwasher is not washing properly then please follow these steps:
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.
As you said that the water builds up at the bottom see If it comes out 'foamy' then liquid dish soap is getting introduced into the dishwasher. Liquid dish soap is different than automatic dishwasher detergent. liquid dish soap needs to be COMPLETELY rinsed from anything that has been pre-soaked prior to putting in the dishwasher. after a couple of regular cycles the foam will go away. Nowadays liquid dish soap is also 'concentrated' or 'ultra concentrated' which doesn't help.


If further this does not solve your problem the the only solution is to get it repaired.

Goodluck..

Dishwasher cycle runs: tablet is not dissovlved, dishes dirty


If the dry cycle has a problem, check these:

Heating element
Drying fan
Thermostat
Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element.

Drying fan Many high-priced dishwashers have a small fan that blows air or heated air into the dishwasher to speed up the drying process. If the fan is defective, you need to replace it.

Thermostat Some dishwashers have a thermostat that monitors the drying temperature. If the thermostat is defective, the heating element may not cycle on or off properly. If that's the problem, you need to replace the thermostat.

Hello Ramona Doug,
Try disconnecting power from your dishwasher for a few minutes to clear the memory and then reapply power again. Start a wash cycle without dishes on the hottest water setting and after a few minutes.. pause the wash and add a few cups of white vinegar to the wash water.,. that will help break up deposits in the system.. See if that gets you going properly.

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes. Casade cleaner not disolved.???


Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.

Stuck on last minute


I have seen a lot of these dishwashers burn out the control board, and usually the symptom is the timer not working or inability to complete a cycle. Most of the ones I have seen, you can remove the control board assembly and its pretty obvious where its burnt. If you can do the repair yourself, the board is about $150. Hope this helps!
