Question about Bosch Dishwashers

Open Question

We have a Bosch Diswasher Model SHX-46A05UC that we purchased three years ago. We have loved it! This week it started running a long long time and won't finish on its own. Also the santitized cycle is not working. We live in a remote mountain town and our local appliance repair man refuses to work on it because it is a Bosche and he hates them. Please help! Can we do something on our own before having to pull the dishwasher and take it out of town for repair? Thank you...Jackie

SOURCE: Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water

your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

SOURCE: Hello, I've got a Bosch dishwasher that is acting

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 ) 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.

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,

**Flip this over and inspect the solder joints, it will be obvious when you see it.**

This ones new, but it's where to look...

9119d99.jpg


...hence the unit sit`s and takes longer & longer to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed, other-times it will eventually stop or display "1".


You can also run the unit through a regular or econo cycle ...any cycle with the exception of rinse & hold, and with the door panel removed place an ammeter on the gray/black wire it should draw 11 amps during the wash cycle...after it fills and the flow switch indicates it has adequate water to engage the heater.

i.e.

f57273b.jpg
**My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...or it will not last, 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 or turn off the breaker before attempting any service to the dishwasher.**


As you alluded to though, sometimes one needs to call a tech. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau/Siemens, 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 to it's helpfulness.

Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Bosch diswasher,model Sms68m02AU trips circuit breaker


rcd units trip from the milliamps that are in a short
it trips the rcd to prevent electrocution and acts in nano seconds besides being a circuit breaker for excessive current
the trip can be from moisture allowing a current leakage to ground or some other simple operation
I suggest that you get in a qualified electrician / bosch service technician to find the reason for the problem rcd

Why is my Bosch SHE4AM15UC dishwashwer not heating water not sanitizing? How do I fix this problem?


The problem could be a failed heating element. If replacement of the control panel results in no change, the element could be the problem.

You should check the coil mattress cover. Feel around to make sure nothing is puncturing the bladder. It is not normal for them to fail like that. When you deflate it, you must make sure all of the air is out of the bladder before folding the unit back into the sofa. If you don't, you make end up with a problem at the seams.

I have a Power Star electric hot water heater, model AE 125, serial # 39-203967, model 45-55130. purchased 5 years ago at Home Depot for $850.00. I love the heater when it works. This is the second time I...


Bosch has 10-year limited warranty.
Probably the seller honors warranty first 90 days and Bosch afterward.

I think warranty is similar to car warranty where parts are covered, and they pay for parts to patch up the blown transmission but not give you a new car. But I hear of cases where the company just send a whole new Tankless unit and you install it yourself.

Contact Home Depot and present them with receipt.
Contact Bosch with the same information given in Fixya question.

Dear Sirs, I have a client with a Bosch dishwasher that is leaving a film on all of the dishes. the water valve is working and the drain pump is working. Apparently this has just started. Any ideas?...


Hello

Welcome to FixYa.

Can you provide a model number of your Bosch dishwasher ?

Depending on the model ( i.e. SHU, SHV, SHE, SHX followed by several caricatures etc. ) it can be several possibilities so I`ll hold off generalizing and instead try and speak specific about your model.

Regards,

Your best option is to contact a used appliance dealer and hope for the best on locating racks.
I priced some similar model racks for a customer 2 months ago. They were over $400 each.
