The soap door does not open during the wash cycle


Hi



Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these.


Hope this helps...

Magic Chef DISHWASHER - mODEL du4k, STOPPED DURING drain cycle


I am assuming that the pump motor is bad, and since the unit is at least 15 years old (just guessing), we decided to wash the dishes by hand till after the holidays!!
Merry Christmas

Dishwasher stopped working


Hello, A common accurance for dishwasher's that all of a sudden goes dead is a poor installation and consiquently a loose/burnt connection at the junction box. It is located behind the kick plate to you right. ** TURN THE BREAKER OFF BEFORE PERFORMING ANY SERVICE PLEASE ** Remove the wire murret's and inspect the wires condition. (it may be obvious upon inspection) strip them back a bit and twist some new connector's on the wires. That should do it...unless it's a bad timer comtrol or on/off switch, but that would be out of the ordinary for Bosch. Hope that help's. If you've found this info here at fixya to be useful please remember to rate it before you leave. Let me know if I can assist you further. Thank you and good luck. Macmarkus :)

Small door where soap goes does not open during cycle.


Most detergent cups are spring loaded and released by either a mechanical trip or by a bi-metal strip latch. If your model is a simple dial timer type, look for a mechanical linkage between the timer and detergent cover. If it is a touch panel control, look for the other type. The bi-metal strip type has a heating wire wraped around it that can open electrically or burn out physically.

Mechanical types can be checked by rotating the timer knob 360 degrees while watching the detergent cover linkage. Electrical types require use of an ohm meter to check the resistance of the heating element on the bi-metal strip.

If you are using powder type detergent, make sure it is not caked when added to the cup or it can jam the rotating type covers.

Dishwasher switched itself off during cycle - no power now


It is possible that some of the pips have been washed down into the drain pump and jammed the impellor, follow the drain hose back to the pump underneath of the dishwasher make sure the d/washer is switched off at the power supply before you attempt this, if you have reasonable mechanical skill you should be able to remove front of pump to clean it.

Hello bckp,
Welcome to Fixya


If your dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle

Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing? Opening the door or
interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and
press START/RESUME.
Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
(NOTE: On models with a dual-digit display, the control
displays “- -” during a cycle if it believes the door is not
latched.)
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection
Charts.”
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
It is normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for several
seconds during the main wash.

If the dishwasher will not fill

Check the overfill protection float that is able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.

Let me know if any of these procedures helped you?
