This is normal with a Bosch. They don't really vent out when they heat, and use a type of evaporation technology to dry the dishes. Best bet is to make sure first that the filter in the bottom is clean, (the little circle thingy on the bottom, turn it a quarter turn and pull it out, run it under cool water till it's clear, then put it back in the same way.) If the water is bothering you or is beginning to make a bit of a smell in there, leave the door cracked a little after you empty the dishes out. unfortunately though, it'll always leave water in the bottom. European technology.

I have a Bosch SHE4AM15UC dishwasher. It's been working fine, but yesterday I noticed that there was water in the bottom of the dishwasher after the cycle was finished.


Check the "P trap" where the drain hose connects under the sink. It may be partially blocked allowing water to syphon back into the machine or preventing it from pumping properly after the second or third pump out.

It will not drain all the way, there is always water at the bottom after a wash and dry cycle?????


Hello. This is a definite issue and somewhat unsanitary so let's get it fixed. Most likely, there is a partial blockage somewhere between the tiny drain pump at the base of the machine and the trap under the sink.

Kill the power to the dishwasher at the electrical panel for the house. Remove the lower front panel of the dishwasher and disconnect the drain line where it connects to the drain pump near the floor. Expect and plan for about three cups of drain water. Disconnect the small pump and visually check it out. If there is debris in there, remove it. If not, keep looking by checking the length of the drain hose and the area under the sink where the drain hose enters the drain and the trap there. J.

There is water in the bottom of the dishwasher


Hello. Most likely you have a partial blockage in your dishwasher drain line between the floor of the machine where the drain pump may have debris in it and the trap under the kitchen sink. If you are handy you can remove the lower front panel of the machine, locate the small pump at the end of the drain hose, remove the pump to physically examine it and remove any glass or other debris in there and then check the rest of the drain line right to the trap under the sink.

Be sure to begin by turning off the breaker to the dishwasher to eliminate any shock hazard. J.

Water in Dishwasher Bottom


Hello Richard, Welcome to Fixya ! You've come to the right place. The problem you're experiencing unfortunately is a common one. The water inlet valve has been an issue with B/S/H built ( this includes bosch, thermador, seimens & gaggenau ) dishwasher's going back to the mid 90's. The part to repair it is available at most brick & mortar appliance part centers or you can check out on-line vendors such as repairclinic, apwagner etc. Do a search for part # 1105846 at repairclinic, you'll see what I'm talikng about. By the way it's about $35. Hope that helps move you forward. Let me know if I can assist you further, or need help on how to change it etc. It's relatively easy with Bosch. Thanks for coming to "fixya" for your inquiries and please take a second to rate this answer according to my helpfulness. Goof luck. Macmarkus :)

DISHWASHER DRAINING POORLY


Check to see if you have a plugged, kinked, drain hose or screen. Do you know how to disassemble the bottom of the diswasher to get access to the drain hose? Also, is the dishwasher drain and hose properly vented?

Specks of "sand-like" food on my dishes; water not draining


I bought a replacement filter and that dramatically cut down on the amount of "specs." Now there are only a few in some of the glasses. I also cleaned out the drain underneath the screen, there were peas and corn in there, I just used a shop vac to **** them out. Seems to be much better now, I think a good inside cleaning of the washer will help out too. Hope this helps...

Hello Ramona Doug,
Try disconnecting power from your dishwasher for a few minutes to clear the memory and then reapply power again. Start a wash cycle without dishes on the hottest water setting and after a few minutes.. pause the wash and add a few cups of white vinegar to the wash water.,. that will help break up deposits in the system.. See if that gets you going properly.
Regards

Try running citric acid (3 tablespoons) through.
You can get it from a drug store.
Or, run 1/2 cup vinegar through.
Do this in both the dish washer and the disposal.
After doing this try running some water into the disposal and then see if the next time you run the dishwasher if it still smells.
You could be having a problem with water not staying in the drain trap under your sink that is why if you run water and fill the trap, then you will find out if it was the dry trap that caused the smell from sewer gases backing up into the house trough the garbage disposal.

If it is new- then the fishy smell is almost certainly the motor and circuit boards 'cooking' in- most motorized electrical devices have an initial pong. However if it persists after say 10/15 cycles begin to suspect an incipient fault.
