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?

Re: Bosch SHU9915UC Dishwasher - wash cycle won't happen

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

Bosch Dishwasher drain mechanism starts itself a few hours after a completed cycle and won't stop. I reset the dishwasher, but it remains unusable for a few days. If I turn on the dishwasher, th

this could mean there is water leak and it collects at the base of the dishwasher leading to moisture detection circuit tripping. when you leave it for a few days the water dries up and trip is removed. check door seals for leak most likely at the base of the door. turn power off when working on dishwasher.

My Bosch dishwasher fills with water but when it comes to the wash cycle it does nothing.

If your dishwasher is brand new, then call Bosch service as they can repair it under warranty.

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.

How do you disable the cycle completion signal/beep on the Bosch SHU9915UC dishwasher?


Welcome to FixYa.

I think can answer your question..."How do you disable the cycle completion signal/beep on the Bosch SHU9915UC dishwasher?"

Follow these steps...

**How to Operate the Cycle Completion Signal**

1. Open door, hold down program button (see
Beeper Table below) and simultaneously turn the unit "ON".


SHU 9950 Delay Start Hours
**SHU 9910-9920 Delicate/Econo** should be yours
SHU 8800/8810 Quick Wash

SHV 6800 Delay Start Hours
SHV 4800 Delicate/Econo
SHV 4300 Delicate/Econo

2. Release program button.
a. For SHV 6803 and SHU9950 models:
The display will blink with a code of "0", "1" or
"2". You are in program mode.

• If the display blinks with a "0", you will hear
no signal (indicates OFF).

• If the display blinks with a "1", you will hear a
LOW volume signal.

• If the display blinks with a "2", you will hear a
HIGHER volume signal.

b. For all other models with the beeper

• If the machine beeps, then the Cycle
Completion Signal has been enabled.

• When you push the button again and it does
not beep, it means that the Cycle Completion
Signal has been disabled.

3. To change the program, press the program
button until the desired setting is selected.

4. Turn the Dishwasher off to take it out of
program mode.

* At the end of a wash cycle, the beeper will sound
off two times, and again every 15 minutes until the
dishwasher is turned off.

Hope this answers your question and provides you with what you needed.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Drain was clogged and the dishwasher overflowed. It's a 10yr old Bosch dishwasher. Now water won't flow into the dishwasher but it runs through the cycle and dishes arent clean.

Probably the aquastop (if you have one). We have a similar problem after our owerflow. The dishwasher is starting and running through the programs but no water is coming.
