Question about Bosch 24 in. SGS43C12 Classixx Free-Standing Dishwasher

Bosch dishwasher gets stuck at 1 minute

My Bosch dishwasher SGS55C02GB/01 will not finish the cycle. It gets to 1 minute and keeps on rinsing. I have removed the side panel and exposed the pipe matrix. The float in the bottom had water in and had activated the micro switch. I have drained this and reset the machine (the micro switch is working). Still same problem. I have run the machine with the side panel removed. The water pressure is good and no leaks on the inlet and outlet. The cycle starts and the machine fills and rinses, then empties. Then fills again and the wash tablet is released and the wash cycle commences. Then the machine empties and refills to rinse again. However it carries on rinsing and will not complete the cycle, just stays on 1 minute.

    The problem started after I had done some plumbing work in the kitchen. I fitted new copper pipework to the dishwasher and the washing machine and put new inlet taps on each machine.

    After reading several online articles and trying various suggestions I finally found a suggestion that I had not tried.

    I started the wash cycle with the side panel removed and watched the water inlet and waste operation. Upon starting, the inlet valve opened and a plentiful supply of water entered the machine, however, there was too much water entering and as it entered the red float would rise and the waste pump would start, therefore water was going in and out during the initial starting cycle resulting in insufficient water for the wash cycle.

    I reduced the pressure to a level that would still allow filling but not raise the red float.

    Cycle ran and completed: problem solved.

    Many thanks to those who responded and I hope this is useful info to others.

SOURCE: Diswasher Pump won't stop running

Introduction: This may work for your problem, but only if you're finding that you cannot get further water to flow into your machine. If your machine fills, OK, then this ISN'T a solution to your problem.

I have a Bosch SHV. My sink drain backed up, and the water accumulating in the sink then migrated to the dishwasher, through the drain pipe, causing the dishwasher to fill up and, it turned out, overflow a little. When I turned on the dishwasher, the water drained, but no new, clean water came through the hot water pipe. The drain just kept running, but nothing else happened.

Here's what happened. Under the main chamber of the dishwasher, by three inches or more, is a white plastic tray. It sits almost at the floor, and it may not be obvious that it's a tray capable of holding water. The overflow water spilled into that tray, which in turn caused a float in the far left side of the tray to lift (the way a toilet float lifts when the water fills in a toilet tank) and shut off the water intake valve (like the toilet float shuts off the toilet water flow). So long as that valve is closed, your machine will not run.

STOP: disconnect power supply at this point for safety.

To see the white plastic tray and thereby fix the problem, you'll need to take off the BLACK TOE-KICK (attached on my unit by two star-head screws at its bottom) and, possibly , the OUTER PANEL OF THE DISHWASHER DOOR (in my case, a custom wood panel (attached by a few screws through the inner side of the door, two screws that are accessed by popping off little--smaller than a dime size--covers on the sides of the doors, and then the door panel lifts up and out). (I took the outer panel off, but I can't remember if I would have had to reach into the white tray without doing so.)

Once you do that, you can see the white plastic tray. It doesn't come out--at least not without removing the entire machine--so try this. You can take your fingers and feel over and into the tray. You'll probably feel the water--I did. Look at the far left of the tray with a flashlight. Back there you'll see a flat, round, 3-inch diameter piece of white plastic sitting at the bottom of the tray. To its center is a generally U-shaped lever looking device, which, at its far left end, is connected to a red stick pointing up into the machine. When water goes into the tray, the float rises, causing the U-shaped lever to rise, causing the red stick to raise, which (though I couldn't see it) causes an electrical signal to run to, and shut, the valve for your water intake.

I took paper towels, and then a narrowly cut sponge, to sop up the water in the tray. I then took my shop vac and, using it as a blower, blew what little water was left right out. You might be able to use a hair dryer, but first sop out what you can or it'll take forever. Once you've done that, put everything back together and plug your dishwasher back in. My buttons are at the top panel. To reset, hold down the two buttons marked for clear drain for three seconds and release. You should be able to start up then. It took 15 seconds before the water started to run, but it did and the machine works fine again.

Interesting note: The valve that stopped the water from flowing in automatically opened once I got the water out of the tray. You don't need to reset the valve.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Bosch SHX33A runs continuously. Never finishes cycle.

I have a guide here to walk you through the process of clearing the drain system. You most likely have a clog somewhere and the dishwasher can't proceed because it would cause it to flood.

The Control unit on your Bosch has a burnt out heat circuit. Just about every dishwasher has a number of "thermal holds" during the wash and rinse cycles in which the controller waits for the water to be heated to a specific temperature. Most dishwashers check for a temperature rise over a certain amount of time and will shut down if this increase is not seen, however, Bosch does not employ this secondary check and the unit will run for as long as you allow.

The Control Unit on your dishwasher will need to be replaced. Being as Bosch is extremely properitary on their parts sells, it is best to actually talk to a parts supplier directly in order to ensure you are getting the correct controller. It is very important that the replacement controller is for your model #, including the /17 designation at the end. A xxxxxxUC/12 controller will not work on your model.

The Control Unit is found in one of 2 places; 1) behind the Control Panel, or 2) at the lower right hand side of the unit towards the rear. Both are relatively easy to replace.

My Bosch dishwasher stops with one minute left on the timer but keeps running most time the soap dispencer door has not opened


Ok The soap dispenser is controlled by a wax plunger. This is mounted in the door on the back of the dispenser. Remove the door panel and gain access to the wax motor. Two wires connected to a brown colored small rectangular box about 1 inch long.You must check this wax plunger for resistance and short circuits. This item is a naughty little thing and can blow up your electronic. for mine I would get a new wax plunger and fit it straight away.They dont cost that much. After this if the fault still counts down to 1 tell me if the motor is still running at the end of the cycle. It very well might be. If this is so the electronic may be faulty. You can menil me on fixitap@gmail.com for further assistance.
Also check to see if the cycle works normally on the rinse . That is a cycle whit no heat. Just the pre rinse.

If it's a Bosch, check for Rinse Agent (e.g. JetDry). Rinse agent is not optional with a Bosch.

Sounds like the control module is out -- cost about $100 (I am on my third). I got a "lifetime" warranty when buying my second one. If you are handy, you can replace it yourself. You can call Bosch to confirm this (I did). It mounts inside the door.
