Bosch SHU9915UC Dishwasher - wash cycle won't happen

This just started happening a few days ago. I go to start the wash cycle, and the dishwasher comes on and sounds like it's doing its thing - but the water never fills, and it just sits there and hums. So I took the washer part way out and jiggled it around a bit, then started a new wash cycle again. when I wait a few minutes and open it up to check on it, the water is splashing around in there - but the wash cycle never really happens. The soap dispenser never opens, and it doesn't run through the whole cycle.
Then I wiggled it around some more, started a new wash cycle, and it seemed to work. It's washing (I think, I'm afraid to open it) right now - I can hear the water, I can hear the action. What's going on with this?

    When the dishwasher is started a sound like the drain sound begins, no water enters the machine and the cycle never starts. Soap dispenser never opens.  It seems as though the machine is "stuck" on the first part of the regular cycle and never moves.

Hi there your dishwasher has gone into flood protection mode ie. water has leaked into the base and activated the float switch.

to try and locate the leak tip your d/w back to drain the water from the base then remove both side panels and start a program to see if you can see where the water is leaking from, being careful not to touch anything while the d/w is running as live parts are exposed

hope this is of some help

My Frigidaire Dishwasher motor is not spinning rinse cycle


am not sure.. just try this
Check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on motor's tags.
If you don't get this voltage measurement, your problem is not with the motor.
In case you have 115/220V on motor's tags, try first to replace its brushes (2 carbon contacts that transfer the curent to the motor's armature).
try this good luck

Be very careful, it sounds like an electrical failure, were the machine has cut out to protect you and itself. You need an expert there and quickly. Water and electric are a bad mix and more house fires are caused by washers than most other appliances.

After turning the unit on (Bosch dishwasher SHE4AM0), it makes noises like it is starting, but after 1-2 minutes, the light switches from active to clean with no water ever being dispensed and no wash...


OMG The raindance works. I am not sure what worked, but here is what I did: 1) boiled water and put it in the dishwasher. 2) Started pushing buttons to try to do the "Setting Options" on page 13 of the useless Bosch manual. After a bunch of button pushing -- none of the things actually happened that the manual said would happen, but the thing started and is going through a cycle -- not immediately stopping. Wish us all luck in dealing with this poorly engineered product.

Starts but will not go into wash cycle


My solution to this problem was to simply unplug the power from the wall for a few seconds...plug back in, try to cycle again and the wash cycle starts fine now. May have been caught in a cycle loop or something. Any way this solution worked for me hope it works for someone else.

IT IS STUCK , IT JUST HUMMS ,CYCLE DOES NOT START


I PULLED THE DISHWASHER OUT FROM UNDER MY KITCHEN TOP. THEN TRIED IT AGAIN AND IT STARTED WORKING. WATER WAS ENTERING THE MACHINE AS IT SHOULD AND THE WHOLE CYCLE WAS COMPLETED FROM WASHING TO DRYING. BUT WITH THE ODD RATTLING SOUND NOT COOMING FROM DISHES. I ASSUME THE INLET PIPE WAS PROBABLY BENT THEREFORE BLOCKING WATER COMING IN BUT WHY NOW AFTER YEARS OF BEING IN THAT POSITION. THE OTHER THING I CHANGED WAS THE ELECTRIC SOCKET POINT- IE I PLUGGED IT IN SOMEWHERE ELSE BECAUSE MOVING IT MEANT THE LEAD COULD NOT REACH ORIGINAL SOCKET. HOPEFULLY WHEN I RETURN IT TO ORIGINAL POSITION EVERYTHING WILL BE WORKING. FUNNY THING HAPPENED THE WEEK BEFORE- MY WASHING MACHINE WAS STUCK IN MIDDLE OF A CYCLE . BUT STARTED WORKING THE FOLLOWING DAY. COULD IT BE MY ELECTRICITY PERHAPS - IE MY APPLIANCES ARE NOT RECEIVING ENOUGH CURRENT?

Dishwasher keeps running and countdown stalls randomly.


Sounds like The settings have messed up it happened to mine a while back you need to do a hard reset of the dish washer mine was unplugging the thing then plugging back in 30 seconds later then holding the cycle button a few seconds and then power on again. Find your hard reset combination of what your make and model of the dishwasher is I hope this helps.
