Check the following areas to combat this issue.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer/control
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

How do I resolve f17 error message on bosch classixx 7


F17 is a time out fault on drain pump. Check all water hoses and drain pump for either blockage or restriction. Failing that, check your waste pipe is clear.

Bosch classixx dishwasher sgs43c12 not draining.


The only way to eliminate a pump issue is to actually remove the pump and check it internally, it doesn't take much to block them and also the impellers can come loose, It sound like you are handy with tools so i suggest removing the drain pump and while it's off check the hoses that run to and from the pump for obstructions and make sure the impeller is not loose.

We have a bosch classixx free standing dishwasher and the base is filled with water, we ve removed the filter but there doesn t seem to be anything there causing the blockage.any ideas?


Hello Becky,

The most likely causes are a failed drain pump motor (or capacitor) or a jammed/broken pump impeller. There is a very simply simple test on classixx models which which help you to determine the cause, or where to look next.

1. Turn the wash cycle selector to any wash cycle so the "ON" light is illuminated, but do not press the START/STOP button.
2. Open the door and pull the lower basket out.
3. Locate the 'float', lift it up fully and keep it held up.

(The float is a dome/mushroom shaped protrusion in the base of the washer just to the left of the drain and partially hidden by the spray arm)

When you lift the float, the drain pump should run instantly and the water should drain from the washer. If you can hear a low hum from the pump motor in the base of the washer, but the water doesn't drain, then it's likely that the pump impeller is jammed or it may have broken away from the spindle. If this is the case, try repeatedly lifting and dropping the float fairly rapidly. Repeated stop/start signals to the pump motor can sometimes free a stuck impeller.

If you cannot hear any noise from the base of the washer when you lift the float, then the drain pump motor or the motor capacitor may have failed. A failed capacitor is often accompanied by a buzzing noise. Further testing will be required to determine the exact cause of the fault.

Please try the simple test above and then post back with the results for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

I have a bosch dishwasher that wont drain


Question! Did u buy this from Bosch? If you did not, then your contract is with the Store you bought it from and NOT Bosch and you should be contacting them and they should sort the problem.

A blockage, can sometimes be solved by putting one of those diswasher cleaning tabs in the machine a couple of times and see if that sorts the problem for you.

I suggest do that first it is the cheapest option and then if that does not work ring who you bought it from whether that be a retailer or Bosch themselves.

Water not draining from the machine


If it IS the pump, it’s often because some relatively minor item (piece of cocktail stick/bit of nutshell/etc) has found its way past the filters and is blocking the blades of the pump. It is relatively simple to remove the inlet hose to the pump and clear the blockage (a pair of grips to pinch and remove the retaining clip, then the hose will slide off the fitting on the pump). I did this several times on my previous (Hotpoint) machine – and suspect it is no harder on the Bosch (which I now have). If that doesn’t work, you are half-way to replacing the pump, which is not a difficult DIY job and I’m surprised any competent professional repair man wanted to write off a machine where the pump had failed. A new pump should cost around £40-£50 – less than a quarter of the cost of a new machine. DIY fitting would maybe take a couple of hours; a pro ought to do it in less than an hour.

Dishwasher not draining


Hi James:

What a coincidence. I am having same issue in my GE washer and I called a handyman. He came, checked through to make sure there is no blockages and concluded it is the pump. He said it is going to cost 350-400 and recommended I buy a new one instead.

if no drain, then no cycle. problem is probably that draining is not taking place. check the following: if plumbed in under the sink, remove drain hose from spigot and check no blockage. start any program - all programs start with drain. listen carefully for a low humming noise. if you hear this, it means you have something stuck in the pump impellor - bit of bone, cocktail stick etc. get back to me if you like with what you find
