Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Bosch SHU43 My Bosch SHU43C dishwasher stopped washing, turns out the impella came free from the motor, I repairded impella and put it back together and now the dishwasher washes great however now it is stuck in a wash rinse drain cycle. Display counts down but the unit never stops running when it reaches 0. Also, the water level is higher than normal and I there is a kind of thumping sound repeatedly every 15 seconds " use to make that sound only once at the start of a cycle before the impella broke. I have tried canceling cycle per manual but there is no change. So I am running the dishwasher for 45 minutes then turning it off manually, letting dishes dry. Machine is 3 yrs old. "Last Bosch I ever purchase" hope you can help. Thank you!

Re: Bosch SHU43

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. Mine is a BOSCH 5316.

The draining problem may mean a clogged drain hose -- you have to check it all the way back to either the main drain or the garbage disposal (if you have one). This may be what forced off the impeller wheel.

We had this a while back - it was something to do with a blocked filter right inside, which meant the hot wasn't coming on. The repair man had to put in a new filter, which had been blocked possibly cos we had been doing quick washes with environmentally friendly detergent, and that solved the problem.

Won't complete the cycle

Try using a quick cycle and see what happens. Don't use sanitize or any extra heat cycle. Sometimes during sanitize high temp rinse or other cycles the timer motor is stopped until the water heats up. The sensor could be defective. Not all machines do this and I'm not real familiar with your particular one.

Bought the display unit and water will not work.

hi there the low humming noise that you are getting sounds like the fill valve, this could be due to you perhaps not turning the water back on after fitting the new dishwasher or the fill hose being kinked when the dishwasher was put back ,hope this is of some help to you.
