Dishwasher: BOSCH SHE43 - pump keeps draining

Dishwasher: BOSCH SHE43F02UC /50 - It completed a successful cycle.
For the next cycle, when it starts, instead of filling in water the pump keeps draining as if it were full with water.
I had this model for almost 1 year. 1st time I used it after installing it I had this problem.
Then, after all sorts of trials/buttons I’ve got it work fine for about 9 months. Then again problem-tricks and got it work for another 2 months. And now again.
I am trying the “tricks” (fill it with water myself, all sorts of button combinations) and can’t get it to work.
It is annoying it doesn’t have a RESET button – kind of like a Windows PC reboot.
There must be some un-documented commands that can overwrite everything and set the cycle to zero!
Anybody? Thank you.

Your dishwasher is stuck in flood mode. Bosch dishwashers are built with flood switches located in the bottom base pan of the dishwasher. The flood switch is connected to a rod that activates a small interlock switch. When water enters the base pan on a Bosch dishwasher, a Styrofoam puck lifts the rod, activating the flood switch.

When the flood switch is activated, the dishwasher will go into a no-fill, only-drain mode. The drain motor may also run with the door open to the unit. This is definitely a sign there is water in the base pan. This can be caused by the drain being clogged. There are two ways to fix:

1. You can uninstall the dishwasher and tip it forward to about a 45 degree angle to drain the water out of the base pan. (This is probably why Ian Bint's solution fixed the problem.) Be sure to put a towel under the dishwasher first so that the water is soaked up in the towel instead of going all over the floor. Once you've drained all the water out of the base pan, reinstall the dishwasher and begin a cycle. If it fills and runs, you are good to go.

2. You can also unplug the unit, then remove the kick panel at the bottom in the front. (It's attached with two screws.) Then get some old washcloths or small towels and reach into the base pan below the dishwasher to soak up the water. The pan is directly behind the plastic base panel rim. Once the pan is empty and dry, your dishwasher will no longer be in "flood mode" and will run properly.

If the base pan keeps refilling with water and the no-fill problem returns, there is definitely another issue, such as a clogged drain. At this point, you need to decide whether to invest in an expert evaluation by a certified Bosch repairman and make the necessary repairs, or buy a new dishwasher.

I wanted to thank this forum from 07/2017... this was my issue and it solved it. take off the black panel on the bottom meticulously dry that overflow pan and the inside of the dishwasher. Boy they sure do not give you much access to that little overflow pan. I used a wet dry vac and paper towels and some old rags

Same problem on my SGS45E62GB/52
I thoroughly cleaned the drain pump, (1 x torx T20 screw below the filters and unclip the cover), checked the drain and inlet houses and filters,but it all made no diference. The pump continued to run and the programme would not advance from the start position.
Having read lots of posts on FixYa, I assumed the fault was a water level sensor/float somewhere that was telling the machine it needed to drain, the problem is these machineas appear almost competely sealed to the amateur like me.Inan effort to free up whatever it wa that was stuck, I threw in a few cups of water and set it pumping, whilst rocking it forwards and backwards a few times.
As if by magic, as soon as it had drained it started to fill and work properly.I have now set it running with a cleaner and de-scaler product in an effort to stop whatever it was gunginging up again.
This is not the most technical solution, but worth a try before you pay an engineer. good luck.

Our dishwasher won't drain completely. I ran it through a regular cycle but it was left with water in the bottom.


Have you tried canceling the cycle? To cancel, turn the on/off switch to on, then press and hold for three seconds the two buttons labeled "Cancel Drain". Keep the door closed for the next minute so that the dishwasher can complete the cycle. During this time the pump will remove any water from the washer. Also you will notice that Bosch dishwashers always leave a little water in the system to keep the seals from drying out and going bad.
Hope this helps

Bosch dishwasher shx46a06uc-30


the unit will try to complete the last command it was engage in before it went in the overfill safety mode. you must perform a cancel drain cycle to reset unit to default setting. Remember the drain cycle is 2 min and must be completed to reset main control. however if it went into a overfill status you have a leak and it generally comes from the pressure chamber on the lefthand side of unit where the water enters tub

My Bosch Dishwasher will not power up


Hi, Welcome to FixYa.

I would start by first shutting off the breaker.

You mentioned you replaced the "receptacles", I'm not sure if you are referring to the junction box but...I would start by removing the kick plate ( access panel at the bottom ) and checking the wiring at the junction box for the dishwasher 120vac supply line.

This is actually quite common to find a wire murret/connector come loose due to improper fastening and once the unit is in use for a while the connections heat & cool, become loose from normal operating vibrations and burn up from all the added heat caused by "resistance".

The end result is no power to the controls. Check it out and post back what you find.

Thanks for visiting "fixya" and please take a moment to rate the solution/suggestion provided here for you.

Good luck.

I have a Bosch SHE55C05UC dishwasher and it just started to not wash properly and leave water in the pan below (first time it did not drain at all.. I tried the rinse/hold cycle and got the unit to drain...


I am assuming you have checked the filter and drain sump and there are no obstructions. Have you tried taking the drain pipe out of the sink downpipe and checking if it drains directly into the sink?

I am also assuming the wash cycle is completed when you open the dishwasher.
Do you hear the drain pump running?
Post your comment after you have checked the things I mentioned.

Bosch dishwasher timer freezing


There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. It sounds like a plugged drain system or a possible bad drain pump. That's why you are hearing the pump running constantly. I have written a guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

Bosch dishwasher has water in bottom after cycle is complete


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

Bosch SGV43A03 DISHWASHER: pump drains all the time, even if reset!


Typically you could possibly have a leak in the base or sump which activates a little float switch. This in turn switches the drain pump on continuously and deactivates the programing cycle.Sort out the leak.
