SOURCE: water not draining

If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:

  1. Drain line/air gap--A clog in this part is the usual reason that a dishwasher doesn't drain. Remove the drain line to clear any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
  2. Pump--You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher. Remove the lower rack, spray arm and support. Look for an impeller, a device that spins around and forces water through the spray arm. This is the wash impeller and beneath it is the drain impeller that pushes the water into the drain port. Replace it if found defective or worn out.
  3. Drain valve/solenoid---The drain valve may have a solenoid with lever that sticks or frozen and prevents the dishwasher from draining. Free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever.
  4. Belt---A certain brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. Replace it if broken or worn out.
  5. Motor---Check it if turning or working.Turn the rotor manually to see if stuck and free it up. Replace if defective, it is not serviceable.

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher cleans but will not drain.

Remove the drain hose where it attaches to the disposal. This area often clogs and will prevent any d/w from draining.

My Bosch 300 does not have a little round plate nor a square plate below my drum opening on the exterior of the washer like many posters have indicated. How do I get access to my drain filter?


These Bosch machines are similar to some Kenmore washers (he4t). You can remove the lower front cover. Behind this cover, you will find a white plastic housing that has a s tree off cover. Be ready with a catch pan! Remove this cover and water and collected debris will come pouring out in a large gush. If this becomes clogged, the washer may send error codes and fail to spin and drain properly. You can fish out additional debris with your fingers before replacing the cap and the lower front cover.

My Bosch next premium washer will not drain


1st... check the hose for any kinks or blockages. If that is clear, there should be a round cover on the bottom of the machine in front. Remove this and you will find a cap. Remove this and clear the filter of any debris

Bosch goes straight to clean cycle


I had the same issue, for me this is what solved it.

Clean out the drain filter, remove any water that's still in there using a ladle/sponge/cloths, remove the impeller cover and make sure the impeller is spinning with no resistance. may be some food debris that got stuck or the filter may just be very clogged. Give it a try, it's a simple procedure:

This is from Bosch UK's youtube page:

Your drain system is clogged with debris. Remove the filter from the bottom left door and look straight back inside the drain system, you will see more debris inside. Do not use a sharp object to remove the debris or you will puncture the rubber bellows. From the back of the machine, remove the back cover. At the bottom of the tub you will find a rubber drain hose that leads from the bottom the tank to the drain filter. Using your hand, gently squeeze the rubber drain hose to "massage" the leftover debris inside. This should help clean out the debris. WARNING: This will cause a major rush of water to come out so be prepared. Good luck

My bosch dishwasher will not drain and makes a humming noise


Humming noise is an indication of your drain motor getting power but not spinning. Either your drain pump is defective and needs to be replaced, or something is stuck in the pump preventing it from draining out the water. Either way you will have to take the dishwasher out and get at the pump from the bottom of the machine.

Water in bottom of bosch dishwasher will not drain. How do I get this water to drain


Hi

Dishwasher not draining issue occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. To access the drain pump, please follow the procedure---
1. Drain pumps are mounted to sumps in the front of dishwashers --they're easily accessible from the front of dishwashers by removing toe kicks.
2. Tools needed: small flat blade screwdriver (for unlocking terminals).
3. Remove toe kick/base cover, pull up terminal cover and disconnect wires (using screwdriver to unlock locking terminals).
4. To remove pump, pull latch (on circular collar) & rotate pump clockwise (cw).
5. To install new pump, insert @ 2:00 position & rotate counterclockwise (ccw).
6. Clean water & debris from base, then check float operation.
7. Connect wires, then install base cover & toe kick.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Bosch dishwasher SHU4000 problem starting, not draining


Drain problems are almost always going to be a clog. Disconnect the drain hose from the air gap vent at the sink top. Place a bucket under the hose and run the drain cycle. Unit should drain. If not, clog is either in drain hose or under the dishwasher's internal filter. Remove filter. Locate the item causing the clog and remove it. If nothing is found here, the problem will be in the air vent gap filter itself. Disconnect the other hose and remove the air vent gap from the sink. There's a small cap at the top of the filter. Press the clips in to remove the cap. Flush the unit with water or use a thin, long blade screwdriver to remove the debris.

Put it all back together and test again. You should be fine.

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!
