Question about Bosch Dishwashers
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).
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

Wash Cycle Options
Delay Start (model dependent):
This option allows you to delay the start time of your dishwasher up
to 19 hours.
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
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! :)
