Question about Bosch SHU5315UC Dishwasher

Open Question

Why does my dishwasher not drain?

The standing water at the bottom of the dishwasher is about 2 inches deep, it's quite 'soft' and feels like the water still has soap in it --so it didn't drain any of the cleaning cycles. Things that I've done: I removed the filter, it is free and clear. I removed all of the water (cup and bucket) and no obstruction is in the 'well'. I put it in the 9-minute rinse cycle and it did the whole cycle, and there is a motor sound when it needs to drain but it sounds like it's lost its mojo, it sounds weak.

I had the same problem. The motor had to be replaced. For as much as we paid for this it has not lived up to the Bosch name. It's never been as quiet as other people talk about, and then the motor went out! It's only 2 years old.

Hi

Kindly check for the following :

Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit.
Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise
If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.

Check pump impeller for damage.
Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.

Please contact for any further clarifications.

A Fixya Rating would be appreciated if.

Thanks

they must have changed the way they treat the water in your area. those spots are caused by hard water. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a product out for this problem. it filters the water going into your dishwasher leaving them spot free and crystal clear with every load. you will love the way your dishes look.

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher continues to run (Model SHX46A02UC)

searched oother sites. some report a circuit board problem where one of the solder joints overheated and burned out of contact. check yours and repair/replace if that is the problem.
if not at least you can rule it out.

SOURCE: My Bosch shx46A05UC no longer will drain.....it

I ran into the SAME problem with my Bosch SHX46A06UC /21. The problem ultimately ended up being a clog in the air gap vent, (meaning, SOMEBODY ran the dishwasher without the bottom filter being in place or not in place properly). Remove the air gap cover and upper surface nut to drop the air gap vent into the area under the sink. Disconnect the hoses from the air gap vent filter (placing a bucket under the hose from the dishwasher). Run the drain cycle on the dishwasher. The washer should drain into the bucket and let you know that your pump works and that there are no clogs or kinks in the drain hose. (This will also remove the clog if so). The air gap vent's smaller hose connection is MOST LIKELY where your clog is. Look at the upper end of the air gap vent. You'll see a couple of clips on opposite sides of each other, that hold the air vent cap in place. Using a small screwdriver, (or your hands if you can), depress the clips (or one at a time) to get to the point where you can pull the vent cap off the filter. Either use water or a thin, long blade screwdriver to force any objects out of the filter. You should now have full flow through both branches of the filter. Using water and a rag, clean the vent cap and filter. Mount the air gap vent filter back onto the sink. Reconnect the hoses and remove the dishwasher's internal filter(s) and clean them as well while you're at it, making sure to remove any debris that might remain underneath the filter and has the chance of clogging the unit again.

Run the washer again to test. You should be good!

Cheers!

Standing water in dishwasher


Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that you have some standing water inside of your Frigidaire dishwasher. It is a normal operation to have anywhere from 2 to 3 inches of water inside of the tub of your dishwasher. If it is anything more than that you could have an issue with the drain pump or drain line.

You may want to check the drain line for any restrictions or clogs that could cause improper siphoning from your dishwasher. You should also make sure that the filter located in the bottom of your tub is clean, that could cause water to stand within your dishwasher. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Water not draining away, what can I do


Take out the bottom rack and put it aside. In the bottom of the dishwasher, there is a plastic strainer that screws in. Remove the screws and set them aside with the strainer. Feel around for anything in the hole which could be blocking the drain. Often labels, soapscum, food particles, etc., get in there. If there is standing water, mop it out so you can see in there. After you've cleaned out the drain, replace the strainer with its screws and the bottom rack. Try the dishwasher out by letting in a little water (an inch) at the start of the cycle, then turn it to the end of the rinse cycle to see if the water drains out. Hopefully that will fix your problem without having to call in an expert.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

As the water did not drain completely then check the drain hose & drain pump filter for any clogs/obstructions, if you have already cleaned these parts and the unit will not work then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

LEAVE MORE WATER THAN SHOULD BE


There is a drain hose that runs from your dishwasher to underneath your sink. (usually connects in right below the drain spout)

It sounds like this may have become clogged, or the sink drain is clogged causing the water to back-up in to the dishwasher drain hose.

GE dishwaher leaks with standing water in bottom


Check to make sure regular dish soap did not end up getting inside the dishwasher. This will create a lot of suds that will overflow onto the kitchen floor. Standing water from not draining can mean the drain hose is clogged somewhere or the check valve has something caught in it. If you remove the front kick plate, you will be able to check those.
