I have a mould problem in 5-yr-old basic model Bosch.
The servicemen so-far contacted have never heard of this problem. We have checked for dirt / foreign objects in the large filter, the water temperature for the required heating temperature -- no leads so far. We run the dishwasher later in the evening before bedtime every third night
Re: I have a mould problem in 5-yr-old basic model Bosch.
A service person solved our problem. We must run the kitchen tap until the water is very hot before starting the cycle. Also, he discovered the water distributor was diconnected:hence little water pressure, especially for the upper tray. I tend to rinse dishes before loading and was told not to do this. I hope this is the solution.

Check the wall poser socket first. If you've replaced the fuse, and it doesn't work. is the symptom that it does not get any power; otherwise you might heard any sound of burning the fuse, when you did switched ON the set. It will be best to contact any service technician in this case. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
I would call Bosch with you.re model and serial number, they have had a recall on your model for the control board and that sounds like it may be your problem, if it is under recall Bosch will send someone out at no charge to install a new board (800) 856-9226
A few possible reasons why this happens:
1. The mechanism (usually a plastic shaft) has dirt on it causing a contact to not close properly.
2. An electrical contact is worn and no longer makes reliable contact.
3. Dirt on or in a contact causing it to not close properly.
Spares for any old machine is always a problem, and considering the complexity of the rotary switch mechanism, I'm extremely hesitant to suggest the methodologies required for fault-finding, and repair, since a custom repair requires tools that many simply don't have at their disposal.
Suffice it to say that (at least) you need a multimeter, and a thin insulated shaft for contact activation to get started. You would have to manually rotate the knob, and see which contacts are closing, and measure them (at the points where the wires connect - NOT on the contact themselves) to determine if they are indeed making contact. The insulated shaft is used as a probe, to lightly move suspect contacts into the closed position, and confirm where the problem lies.
If a contact seems to close, but does not make contact, then check aforesaid contact for wear and dirt. Check the lobe on the plastic cam for dirt build-up which will also cause the contact to not close properly
Oh yes, don't forget to unplug the unit from the mains before proceeding.
All things considered, it might be prudent to retire the machine.
Check the motor control board for dry joints, poor contact, signs of excessive heat around plugs/pins I would try new brushes again or thoroughly inspect whether they are contacting the commutator. I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions. I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.
I Managed to fix my machine ( and Im a girl!!), had to turn the machine upside down to access the motor, took the belt off, and then the motor because you cant access both brushes easily without doing this, unclipped the cables, removed the old brushes and replaced, took about an hour, and the machine is running great again. It was much easier replacing the brushes on hotpoint machines, bosch dont make it easy, but I can complain , because this is the first problem I have had with the machine and its 8 years old
If you're asking about the Condensation - No Venting Required feature:
I've had one for about 4 years with no complaints. I have used plenty of traditional dryers -- even models with moisture sensors. In all of them, it was common to find clothing that was "hot to the touch" when finished.
Every Bosch load finishes with a hint of moisture. I believe this is the Bosch "anti-wrinkle" standard -- but have never used one of their vented dryers. Even a 10 min fluff seems to add a hint of moisture to the load. Either way, you can't throw everything in the laundry basket and leave it for a week.
Europe is short on McMansions -- favoring tiny old homes without proper laundry rooms. Ventless is the norm -- rather than the exception over there. The Bosch works as advertised --producing a trace amount of ambient moisture and/or heat.
Mildew can be an issue -- depending on the dryer's location -- and the areas relative temperature / humidity.
Functions best in a fully climate controlled indoor location.
