Dishwasher won't drain

I own a Bosh dishwasher. A repair person took it out and drained the bottom. At that time, the dishwasher would not run water because the floats were pushed up not allowing any more water. The repair person could not find any leak in the bottom of the dishwasher, and he told me to just run it again to see what happened. I did, and now the dishwasher will not drain. What do you think the problem might be?

The tech that came out may have pinched the drain hose when he put the dishwasher back in place. disconect drain hose from under sink. put dishwasher in cancel/drain mode see if water is coming out at a trickle if so, hose is probably pinched behind dishwasher

Bosh diswasher SHE45M02UC/48 doesnt stop when I open the door


That is the drain pump that is running, and it indicates that there is water in the base of the unit. You will need to unplug the dishwasher and pull it out. You can tip it forward to drain the water out of the bottom through the holes in front. Have some towels ready to catch the water. Now if you plug the dishwasher back in, the pump should not run But now comes the hard part - figuring out where the leak is coming from and fixing it. It could be from a hose, the drain pump, or the main pump. Bosch dishwashers are notoriously hard to work on, so I recommend calling in a professional DW repairman.

I have A bosh SKT 2052 Will not fill up to start the cycle


see the following causes:
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher) see diagram
2) faulty float switch, test for open or faulty.
see the diagram attached.
God bless you

Our Blomberg DW-35100 is not draining. We did have a service person in who fixed the problem temporarily. He took the bottom plate off the tub and told us water was present there which raised some float,...


If your Blomberg dishwasher will not drain, it might be the same problem that I had. The filter is a bad design and it lets a lot of debris through. The hose from the dishwasher to the main drain is very small and it gets plugged. Under the sink, loosen the clamps around the hose going into the main drain and take off the dishwasher hose. I use a screwdriver to push the debris through the small hose (that is attached to the big main drain hose) into the big one where it will be carried away. Then I turn on the dishwasher, hold the start button of the dishwasher for three seconds and shut the door. It drains like magic. The first time I did this, it took two hours to figure it out and now I can do it in three minutes. I am going to write to Blomberg now and see about this terrible filter system!

I have a Bosh Logic dishwasher SGS65L12GB/04 The other day it got to 1 min left and would not stop pumping out water and continued even with the door open. After 5 mins playing around it started working...


Hi Jonathan,

Welcome to FixYa.

Your float may have got stuck or it's possible that you have water leaking into the bottom of the washer. In the bottom of the wash compartment, next to the drain you will find a plastic dome/mushroom (the float). You might need to rotate the bottom spray arm to see it.

Turn the washer on so that the pump starts to run, open the door and push down on the float. This should stop the pump running. When you let go of the float, if it rises back up on its own, then it's almost certain that you have water in the bottom of the washer. If this is the case please post back for further assistance. If the float stays down, then it may have simply got stuck.

Please try this simple test and post back with the results.

Regards,
BElectric

Dishwasher doesn't fill


Dishwasher Doesn't Fill If a dishwasher runs but doesn't fill, either something is wrong with its water supply system or it is draining water too soon. 1) First make sure the water is turned on. Check the hot water supply stop valve, normally located under the sink. Open it all the way by turning it counterclockwise. If there is no reason this would have been turned off since the last time the dishwasher worked, go on to the next step. 2) Turn off the power to the dishwasher. 3) When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher --usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring loaded). Lift out the float mechanism and clean around the float tube; many floats must be disconnected from below--to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, then replace it in the tube and be sure it moves up and down freely. 4) If you're experienced with minor repair work shut off the hot water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel, disassemble the valve to reveal the screen, clean debris from the screen, and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (they will probably need to replace the water intake valve). 5) If none of this helps, call a repairperson. Any of several parts, including water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch, may be faulty.
