Bosch SHU43C07 impeller does not freely spin?


You will need to replace the Drain Pump Motor Assembly Bosch Part Number:AP2802385.
bosch-drain-pump-motor-167082-ap2802385_01_m.jpg

Most Bosch dishwashers are relatively straightforward to work on.
However, it you are not familiar with their disassembly and reassembly, you should take clear pictures of every part or wiring connection before you take it off or disconnect it. This will be invaluable when reassembling the dishwasher.

HI,

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:

Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses
Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack


  • Spray arm


  • Spray arm support


  • Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

Squeaks all the time diring the cycle.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.


I think what you are hearing is the bearing in the pump impeller assembly. After a period of usage (depending on what cycle has been chosen most often, the hotter the cycle chosen, the sooner it occur`s) the bearing becomes worn and as a consequence`develop`s a squeaking and in some cases fail`s completely causing the circulation pump to leak and potentially destroying the motor as well.

Earlier Bosch/Seimen/Gaggenau/Thermadore dishwasher`s had what B/S/H (The manufacturer) refer to as a "hard bearing" but have since revised the impeller kit, #167085, or a complete motor & pump assembly with a softer bearing # 239144.

i.e.

macmarkus_96.jpg
You could also opt to replace the entire motor & pump assy, it is actually less work since it must be removed to repair anyway. The part # 442548 and looks like this...

macmarkus_97.jpg

It is a repair that requires some familuarity with these unit`s and therefore I`d suggest you call a pro who is an authorized Bosch repair person only. I also understand one wanting to save money on repair`s, I`m a consumer too in many area`s outside of appliance repair.

Hope that help`s move you forward and perhap`s a little insight to help make a decision on how to repair it.

A screaming noise seems to be coming from the metal cylinder (capacitor ?)above the pump on the right side of the dishwasher. Makes noise only when the pump is on.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa

Based on your description, "A screaming noise seems to be coming from the metal cylinder (capacitor ?)above the pump on the right side of the dishwasher. Makes noise only when the pump is on" It is likely the carbon impeller seal inside the pump assembly you`re hearing.

It looks like this...

57c9c85.jpg

It is located in that area, but inside the pump housing. It is a well known issue with the B/S/H/ dishwashers ( Bosch, Thermador, Gaggenau, Siemens ) and a service bulletin was issued to authorized techs. some years back.

It can be remedied in one of two methods, complete pump/motor assembly shown below, or just the impeller kit shown above.


47d4ca2.jpg

The part number to replace it for the complete assy is # 442548 or the kit # 167085.

Both are available at several on-line depots such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" to name a couple.

If you`d like to email me at my live account macmarkus@live.ca I can send you a complete service file on how to repair it with part numbers, procedure etc.

Thank you for choosing FixYa. Please keep me posted on your progress or if you need further assistance.

Good luck.

My Bosch diswasher SHU9925UC makes loud squeaking noises during times of the cycle. If I turn the dishwasher off during water cycle the noise will continue. Do you think it is my pump? Should I clean...


Hello jlerms,

I won`t say this is something you can`t fix yourself, but I will say what it sound`s like based on your description and my experience with Bosch...and it is quite a repair.

I think what you are hearing is the bearing in the pump impeller assembly. After a period of usage (depending on what cycle has been chosen most often, the hotter the cycle chosen, the sooner it occur`s)the bearing becomes worn and as a consequence`develop`s a squeaking and in some cases fail`s completely causing the circulation pump to leak and potentially destroying the motor as well.

Earlier Bosch/Seimen/Gaggenau/Thermadore dishwasher`s had what B/S/H (The manufacturer) refer to as a "hard bearing" but have since revised the impeller kit, #167085, or a complete motor & pump assembly with a softer bearing # 239144. I don`t know how old your`s is, but the truth is it still happen`s to the revised design...just not as often.

As I alluded to in the beginning it is quite involved to expect a novice to repair it, heck it`s a 30 min to an hour job even for an expert like me. It is a repair that requires some familuarity with these unit`s and therefore I`d suggest you call a pro who is an authorized Bosch repair person only. You`re the authority, I just see many machines with much service history that may have been avoided if done by a qualified tech and done right in the beginning...especially on hi-end appliances. I also understand one wanting to save money on repair`s, I`m a consumer too in many area`s outside of appliance repair.

Hope that help`s move you forward and perhap`s a little insight to help make a decision on how to repair it.

SPRAY ARM ASSEMBLEY NOT TURNING ON MY BOSCH DISHWASHER, ALSO WATER JUST DRIPPING THROUGH SPRAY ARM

Spray arms not spraying and pump noise for Bosch SHY66C


Unless the motor and pump are an assembly permanently fastened as a unit, you probably need only replace the pump. Motors can be made really poor but will outlive the pump.
Since Bosch is a German brand, it may not be found on the Sears parts pages but it is worth a try. Just go to Sears.com and click onward for parts.

Motor


The only reasons to replace a pump motor are very loud motor or leaking water from the seal of the pump / motor assembly. The motor comes as the pump / motor assembly, and is not real cheap and not particularly easy to replace, so you may want to consider cost of replacing the entire unit. Appliance repair locations can order for you, or you can order directly from GE over the phone. (GE answer center 800-626-2000) Make sure you have complete model number, located on the sticker on the left side of the tub just inside the door.

Leaking problem from the door


hi there,
dishwasher leaking might be due to either of these causes, check these:

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom
of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you.
But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the
entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from
leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher,
remove the:

* Lower rack
*Spray arm
* Spray arm support
* Wash/drain impellers

Then try the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly.
You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the
rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten
or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues
to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the
dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the
leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
