Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Low water pressure

Pump pressure seems low, when I open door while running, spinner is not spinning. Unit is a little more than a year old. Suspect unpopped popcorn could be stuck somewhere.

Re: Low water pressure

Take the impellors of (inside machine) and check to see if there is anythig clogging the wholes. Run the machine for a couple of minutes without impellors on and check around the sump and filter.

Karcher K2.54M loss of all pressure

I have seen it before where the little plastic pistons overheat and melt. The unit still runs but with no pressure. I would pull the pump apart and check the pistons.

First, confirm that the holes are not blocked on these arms. (I did not want to assume you have done this.)

Then check the impeller on top of the motor stem for being loose or worn/damaged - to rule the impeller out. If it is fine, then the motor is failing and too weak to drive the spray arms.
To answer your question, I think the answer is "They don't make them like they used too!"

Remove each spray arm and check it is clear of food particlesat the jets. The next problem may occour at the rotating joint . If the seal is not good, you can loose a lot of water out of this point.. If both of these seem reasonable, then yes the circulation pump may need checking. First check for any debris in the impeller, and that it is not worn or damaged, and that it is attached to the motor or the coupling is still good. If these are ok, then the motors='s capacitor may be faulty - causing it to buzz more than normal usually, and it looses efficiency, getting hot in the process.

One of these should solve the problem !

Wash Arms not spinning --Dishes not clean

Without the model number of your Maytag number, I can not determine if when you order a wash pump motor you also get the impeller.
Sounds like you are on the right path to getting your dishwasher to wash dishes again.
Oh, while you have the dishwasher open, check that the heating element has not failed using a Multimeter.

Good Luck!

Detergent holder door problem

no this means that your bottom arm of the machine is not working correctly and the water pressure therefor is to low to get the soap out.
Clean lower arm (spinner) and all filters. You will see that will help the problem

Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050REC1 - Washing Indicator Light Blinking

Here is what happened, you pulled the door open without pressing cancel and allowing it to pump the water out, hence the "flooding in the bottom". This is just one reason why it maybe blinking, there is a water sensor in the bottom. If your dishwasher is hooked up properly to any decent garbage disposal, run the disposal for about 30 seconds to a minute. This should pump the water out, more like activate a light siphoning affect. It should work as normal. If you are not having luck with that, detach the DW drain get it low and let it siphon.
