Question about Bosch Washing Machines

Open Question

Bosch WVT1260 no heat on drying cycle.

And me.....

Element intact (35Ohms). Checked the voltage on it's pins: 230 V on both pins andnothing between! The connection to ground seems to be missing.
Even when the washer is washing, the voltage is there. It means
there is some kind of switch between the element and ground and
there must be the problem.
I really need a service manual or diagram to investigate more...does anyone have one?

SOURCE: Haier XQG50-11

I had this same problem. There are two possible solutions. First, you need to look underneath (use 2 people) and see if any hoses are kinked. If that is not the case then the machine is pulling in too much water during the dry cycle. I'm hooked up to a sink so I just turn the faucet down until the water is just a trickle. This works for me. If yours is attached to the wall you need to turn down the cold water tap. Its a pain in the ****, but I discovered no one can fix this machine, not even Haier's recommended service A&E. I always know more than the repairmen, very sad. Hope this helped you.

SOURCE: Need service for Malber 1000 heating element..

Hi. Mike here. I repair Malbers in the Washington D.C. area. The most likely problem is not the heating element, but the hi-temp (or "brown") thermostat. They cost about $25 and are very simple to install. A "Torx 1.5" screwdriver (asterisk tip) removes two screws, in back, holding top on. Lift off top, and (from the front) see silver-foil-wrapped heating assy. At lower right will be a small philips screw holding a thin wire "hasp" which holds the thermostat in place. Remove screw and hasp (without dropping in machine!), unplug two "quiik-connect" lugs (orange & red wires) and pull out thermostat to the right. New one slips right back in. Replace wires, hasp, phillips screw and top -and you're done! This is 90% sure to fix. The heating element is only about 5% likely.
One last thing ... when re-inserting new thermostat, you'll have to "wrestle" with it a bit, as the tip needs to slip into a tiny (hard to "find") hole. Keep trying, and eventually it'll fit ALL the way in, so the hasp can hold it. To purchase part, call Joel (at Malber): 800-600-8913
Oh yeah, one MORE last thing... That red wire may be burnt a little, or completely burnt in two. Radio Shack and Home Depot sell "crimp-on" lugs (1/4") like these (female). Trim back the wire, crimp a new lug on the end, and push it back onto lower terminal on thermostat. If wire is too short, of course, add a few inches of 16 guage "stranded" (lamp cord). The same stores also sell tubular "crimp-on" wire-connectors (little blue tubes) to join the old and new wires. May God bless.

Bosch she56c02uc dishwasher does not cycle, stuck on wash


If the display is stuck on 2H it often means the heater is not working. If the water is not heated, the cycle will never complete. It is possible the heating element is bad, but a more likely problem is with the control module PC board. The solution requires some basic repair and soldering skills plus the tools to do the job. Bosch recommends re-soldering the connection to the heating element relay (see page 11 of "SHU/SHI/SHV Dishwasher Troubleshooting Tips") free download here The problem is that the circuit board copper is not heavy enough to handle the heating element current, causing the copper to heat and melt the solder connection. A better solution is to solder a short length of copper wire between the two pins to provide more copper and reduce the chance of heating as shown in the attached photo.

Machine does not wash an dry dishes some time washes but doesnt dry dishes machine starts up an starts to go through cycle but goes on an on takes ages 2 complete cycle at end of cycle dishes not done


Probably heating element gone, or could be the heating circuit relay on the on board computer.
Not easy DIY jobs unless you are confident.
I found one pin (pin 3) on the relay had blown away, taking with it some of the PCB board, but other have experienced the solder just melting off the pin.

I bought some spare Relays, and rerouted the tracks on the PCB, and it has sort of fixed it - well it heats and seems to be working. The timer is still telling me 73mins instead of 35mins, though the cycle only takes 35mins.

Heated dry cycle does not work.


IS ELEMENT HOT DURING DRY CYCLE, DROP SOME WATER ON IT. CHECK FOR VOLTAGE TO ELEMENT DURING DRY CYCLE, IF VOLTAGE AND ELEMENT DOESN'T HEAT THEN IT IS OPEN/DEFECTIVE. IN THE CONTROLS OTHERWISE.

Dishwasher does not dry dishes. dishes are not hot at end of cycle. seems like heating element is not heating


Connect a volt meter one lead at each terminal of the heater. Read the voltage when it is in the drying cycle. If you get about line voltage the heating element is bad. If you get no or very little voltage it is the timing unit. If you are uncomfortable measuring voltage remove one of the wires from the heating element, after unplugging it, then connect a ohm meter across the heater. If it reads above about 50 ohms it is bad, if not probably the timer. Of course you could always connect a light bulb across the two heater terminals and if it lights during the drying cycle the heater is bad.
Good Luck,
Gil

Bosch dishwasher SHX46A -cycle runs too long (4 hours)- items still wet. The economy cycle also runs too long - should be about 80 minutes and it ran for 200 minutes.


It sounds like there's a problem with the dishwasher's heating element. The dishwasher uses the heating element to heat the water to certain temperatures, and it will wait (run for extra time) for the water to reach this temperature, and may eventually give up. When it's time to dry, the dishwasher uses the heating element to steam dry the dishes. If you're not technically savvy, you will probably need to have a pro work on the machine, but first check to make sure there's not hard water scale buildup on the heating element. If you're brave enough to work on the machine, you should check to see if the element's plugged in, check its resistance to make sure it conducts electricity, check the element's switching components, and finally the dw's computer board. There's a chance that the machine is just stuck in a loop or something. You should try turning off the circuit for a few minutes. There's a chance it may reset and start working.

Dishwasher not drying


Same problem here. I read the manual very carefully. "OptiDry", "ExtraDry", "EcoDry", "condensation drying" -- lots of fancy words to cover the simple fact -- they DO NOT DRY the dishes. There is no heating element. I wish they would just state this up-front. Air drying the dishes for 24 hours after each wash is not workable for most users...
