My dishwasher gets stuck with one minute remaining on the clean cycle until it is manually stopped. What might be wrong and can I fix it myself?


Hello,
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description I'd say the issue actually is with the control...unfortunately. This is likely within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ).
If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself...it really isn't very complicated. Copy & paste this link (or click on it if it will respond) to your toolbar (explorer bar ?) and you'll see my complete solution for this issue.

I also wanted to add, depending on your model and serial number Bosch issued a recall on some of their units. Here's a link you can use to check up on your specific unit.

Hi, Welcome to FixYa. The hi-limit thermostat and NTC (all in one) are actually directly on top of the heater body, aka instantanious water heater. You'll also see a micro-switch which turns the element on once water begins to circulate, that is the flo-switch. Having said that, the issue is likely the heater relay on the main control board, specifically a burnt solder joint for the heater relay. If you visually inspect the control you'll likely see it right away. Let me know how you make out or if you need any help, good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description I'd say the issue is with the control...unfortunately.


The number"1" being displayed ( on models with the display like yours ) is actually an error code indicating a fault in the heating process.

Bosch has had a history of this exact problem I'm about to lay out for you and this is the first thing I'd be looking for if called out to service the unit with the symptoms you've described.

**B/S/H/ also issued a recall on certain models between 1999 - 2006 depending on the serial number so you may want to contact Bosch to inquire if yours is affected.**

http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/

or
Bosch dishwasher hotline 1-800-856-9226
Before calling, have the model and serial numbers on hand. A live operator can be reached at the hotline 24/hrs day.

Those not affected by the recall still can be a problem but easily fixed. As I've alluded to the issue is likely within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ).

My first suggestion would be calling in an authorized bosch service tech. if that is an option for you and your budget however, If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself.

It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board.

The culprit will 99% of the times be one of the pins from the heater relay,


**Your control WILL differ in appearance, however the issue, the service and all the same info applies...except the part number. Yours will be # 431692**

**Flip this over and inspect the solder joints, it will be obvious when you see it...the cover for your models control comes apart in a similar manner**

This is where and what to look for, except I`ve re-soldered this one already...

Some of the dishwashing soap is left and the dishes have particles stuck on them especially glasses


Thanks for using FixYa.com! This sure sounds to me like a temperature issue or a recirculation issue. The first thing I would recommend is removing the filter from the base of the dishwasher (inside the tub), 1/4 turn and it comes out. Clean the filter and the area under the large square mesh filter really good. After that, make sure you run the water at the sink until hot before starting dishwasher. If unit still not washing well and runs for a very long time, I would inspect the control for a burn mark on the heater relay which is very common on Bosch dishwashers. Start with the filter first, though.

Dishwasher will not shut off automatically


Hello, This sounds like a very common problem with Bosch dishwashers unfortunately, that is based on your description it likely has a faulty heater relay. The "1" is actually an error code identifying a heating fault. The issue with Bosch dishwasher`s most times lye`s within`the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this error code "1", but not very probable ). I`d first suggest calling in an authorized bosch servicer, however If you feel capable there`s a way to visually inspect the control. It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. This will be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sit`s and takes forever top finish ( because it can`t heat to advance or until canceled ) trying to heat the water. **Further to this, if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)** **Please disconnect the power before attempting any service to the dishwasher. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau, to service your machine.** Hope this answer`s your question, let me know if I can assist you further. Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiries. Please take a moment and rate this solution and leave a testimony. Good luck. macmarkus :)
