    The washer runs a normal cycle, it reaches 1min and runs. We open the door and the water is soapy, closing the door the timer goes to 13.

    We may open the door two or three times . Finally the pump runs and drains the water and completes the cycle. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem. Unit runs down to 1 min and keeps washing. Resetting it takes it back to 13 minutes. I have powered it down adn tried different configurations with no success. I have had past problems with the controller and replaced the unit. I have also replaced the plastic cage over the control unit (the plastic gets brittle with heat and age and the buttons don't work). Should I buy a new dishwasher (different brand) or is there a fix?

I have a SHU5305us/u12 and my front door lettering got erase. anyone have a picture or a manual that tells me what each button means.

Cycle Interruption

As a safety feature the dishwasher will automatically turn itself off whenever the door is opened. However, if the door is opened quickly while in a wash or rinse cycle some water may splash out of the dishwasher. For this reason it is recommended that the machine always be switched off before opening the door.

To Interrupt a Cycle

1. Press the on/off button to stop operation.

2. Wait at least 10 seconds (or until the water noises stop) before opening the door.

To Resume a Cycle

1. SHU/SHI models, close the door and press the on/off button.

2. SHV models, push the on/off button and close the door.

Changing a Cycle

For Bosch dishwasher models SHI 6800 and 4320, SHU 5300, 5310 and 6800 press the program button of the desired cycle TWICE. For all other Bosch dishwasher models, press the program button of the desired cycle ONCE. The chosen cycle button (or the light above it) becomes illuminated, showing that it has been selected.

* SHU 3030 and SHU 3130 models do not have program lights.

Cancelling a Cycle

Each control panel shows which buttons to simultaneously push to cancel a cycle. Refer to your dishwasher to find the cancel drain buttons on your particular model.

1. Press the indicated buttons at the same time and hold for approximately 3 seconds.

2. When the drain pump noises stop and the LED display or clean light indicate that the end of the cycle has been reached, the dish

washer is reset.

3. Press the on/off button to turn the dishwasher off.

4. The dishwasher is now ready to run a selected cycle. Add more detergent if necessary.

A2 code appears and there is no hot water in the house. what should i do?

Problem with overheat cutoff. Press reset button on the control panel.
Before calling service technician, open following link for Bosch troubleshoot resources.
Recommend that people not install tankless water heaters, or heaters they cannot repair themselves since all costs are energy.

Dishwasher does not complete cycle

The problem is the timer/control. I checked for a recall but your model wasn't on the list. Many of these had a recall for the control, they were a fire hazard. Heres a link to help install the timer/control When you remove the front panel there will be to plastic hinge covers be sure to reinstall these they help keep it quiet. They just slip over the hinge. The rest of the removal will be the same.

Bosch 1200 classixx not working properly. On 12 min spin cycle it starts then after 1 min timer reads 0:01 and it stops. washing cycles run but doesn't seem to be any spin action

Make sure there is no water in drum.
Remove and clean pump filter, this is usually located at the bottom front right of washer, behind drop down cover.
Unscrew anti- clockwise to remove and clean.
Good luck.

Bosch dishwasher timer freezing

There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. It sounds like a plugged drain system or a possible bad drain pump. That's why you are hearing the pump running constantly. I have written a guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

Timer switch has broken on bosch wvf 2401 how to replace?

First remove screws X2 from back of the machine that hold the top cover on. Once removed the whole top slides backwards and can then be lifted off. This gives you access to the plastic clips that hold the timer face panel on. The main control dial must first be pulled off through the front cover, then remove the front cover by unclipping it (a pain and a fiddle!) The dial on the timer can then be pulled off revealing the two mounting screws that hold the timer in!!

Bosch shu9905

Check the drain pump. First, manually initiate drain by pressing the second and fourth buttons on the keypad at the same time. If it pumps out, disregard the rest. If it doesn't at least hum, check for power at the motor.
Remove lower rack, lower spray arm, and screens in bottom, remove all water inside. Check for debris under pump cover in bottom of sump. The drain pump suction is through the hole on the left.
Behind the toe panel on the left is the drain motor, If no debris was found inside, the drain pump may have failed. Remove outer door panel (you may need to remove the two screws on the sides of the control panel.) Remove the metal panel across the top of the motor area , disconnect hose in front of pump, disconnect wires to pump, press tab at top of pump and rotate clockwise to remove pump. The impeller could be loose on the motor shaft, or the motor windings failed.

Take off the front panel (10 little screws, two shims will fall out) and you'll see the two handle bolts on the inside of the panel. Tighten 'em; reinstall the panel (good luck figuring out how the shims go back...)
