Question about Bosch Dishwashers

Bosch dishwasher stuck on '1'/restarts & sanitize not lighting

Hi!
We have a Bosch dishwasher.
Model: SHE46C06UC /33
Serial: FD8605 01299

I've looked up results to similar problems, but they are all for older or different models. None seem to be with the SHE model.
It is a 2006 model.
Problem is, we do autowash cycle & it will get down to 1 minute left & sit for quite some time, then it will jump back up to 55 or another time, like today was 12 minutes. It takes forever to finish. The dishes are wet when it is done also.
It just started this a few days ago, as well as the sanitize light not lighting up. When we noticed that, we looked it up in the manual. It says if the sanitize does not light, it means our water is too hot?
I tried looking the model up on the Bosch site, and it doesn't even come up.
This is the first time we've had issues with it, and would appreciate any help! I saw on other posts, that they were told to check out the solder joint. Could this be the same problem with ours?
We still have a warranty from Lowes, and in the manual it says we have a 5 year warranty on electronics (excludes labor charges).

Thanks!!

It possibly could be a bad soldier joint on the heater relay of the circuit board. but if it is then let an authorized bsh tech replace the board since that is a 5 year warrenty part usually. it also could be problem with the NTC-HEAT ASSY- OR FLOW CONTROL. which are all part of the heat assemby.

but the first thing i would check since the time is jumping around on that model would be to make sure that the polarity on the power cord isnt reversed where its hooked up to the d/w

Unknown control panel symbols bosch dishwasher super silent


Wash Cycle Options

Delay Start (model dependent):



This option allows you to delay the start time of your dishwasher up

to 19 hours.

Sanitize:



The Sanitize feature is available only in the Heavy, Auto, Normal and Half Load cycles. Press the

"Sanitize Option" button to activate the Sanitation features during these cycles. The technical sanitation

measures may also improve the drying results. The sanitize LED or The "Water Pipe" symbol will light when sanitation

requirements are met.

Note: The dishwasher automatically defaults to Auto Wash when turned off and back on. If you used the sanitize option
in your last cycle, the dishwasher will default to Auto Wash with the Sanitize option selected when you turn it on.

To achieve proper drying, always use a liquid rinse aid, even if your detergent contains a rinse aid or

drying additive.



Note: The dishwasher indicates low rinse aid by turning on the Refill Rinse Aid indicator LED (for units without

a display) or The "Spray Looking" symbol (for units with a display).

If this light is on, you need to refill the rinse aid dispenser

I got the idea that the "squiggly arrow" has something to do with the sanitize feature also. If you post your model number "on the inside right hand side of your dishwasher door" I'll go get your manual and post the link here. Hope this helps so far! :)

I have a Bosch SHX46A05UC/33 5-cycle dishwasher whose labels on the cycle buttons have also worn away. While the Macmarkus post was helpful b/c I have some of the same buttons, can you tell me the labels...


Hi,

Some SHX46A washers have 4 cycles and others have 5 cycles.

I'm fairly sure your model has the hidden buttons on the top of the door and you stated you have five-cycle buttons, in which case they will be as follows.

1. Top Rack only cycle or Sanitize
2. Power Scrub Plus
3. Regular Wash
4. Delicate Wash
5. Rinse and Hold.

These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down "Power Scrub Plus" and "Delicate" at the same time to cancel a cycle and drain the water out.

If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration (from left to right) will be:

1. Power Scrub Plus
2. Regular Wash
3. Delicate Wash
4. Rinse and Hold.

I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.

Regards,
BElectric

Here again is my model and serial it stops in the middle of the cleaning cycle Kenmore 665.16773402 serial # ft0302854 Here is how I have been resetting the dishwasher. I hit the following sequence of...


Door latch.
Open and close the door to make sure the door latch is securely fastened

Hi-Temp Wash, Hi-Temp Rinse, or Sanitize options.
Some models have options that may require a water heating delay, such as Hi-Temp Wash, Hi-Temp Rinse, or Sanitize. Additional time may be required to heat the water to the proper temperature. The dishwasher will continue to circulate water during this heating delay but the timer will not advance until the proper temperature is reached

My Bosch dishwasher stays running in the wash cycle, will not shut down or dry and sanitize the dishes.Checking the fault codes both the power scrub and the reg wash lights flash. Model SHU33A02UC


A solution to this problem would be to sell me your dishwasher. The law firm for which I work is looking to acquire an old unrepaired Bosch SHU 33 dishwasher for some ongoing litigation. If you (or anyone else with this model Bosch) could send me some details regarding your dishwasher, you may be able simply to buy a whole new dishwasher. My email is JFraser -at- jshlawmi.com.

Thanks!
