Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Wont start I've had the washer for many years with minimal problem. Yesterday when I closed the door no light went on and the washer would not start.  After 20 minutes or so it suddenly went on and worked fine.  I thought that it might have not completed its last cycle. Today, however, I had the same problem and it's been over an hour and still hasn't started. (I checked the circuit breaker and it's fine)

Lights on panel butwont start

we have had one for many years. it works great. we have had to replace our panel 2 times. I read up on this and they say to leave the door open after it is done the wash so all the humidity can disapate. we dont use the heated dry cycle anymore and just crack the door open after it is done.

Dish washer cycle wont start

will it not start because of power?
or buttons light up but no start? what happens when you press start? Light up? If no light, that' where the problem is. Try other buttons if they respond differently. Lastly are you sure you close the door securely?

Frigidaire Dishwasher Model:FDB1050RECO - When i push the start button all lights go out. I have to open and shut the door in order to start the unit this sometimes works...

same problem, wash light would flash, just like if the door was open during the wash cycle....took door apart and suspected the door switch was bad, fiddled with the wires that go to the door switch and the washer worked after that. so i had the door disassembled and used my hand to close the door latch switch then wiggled the white and black wires that go into the bottom of the switch, that is when it started to work.
wiggled with the wires for a while more while the washer was working to make it stop and start, until i found a good spot where it stayed working. been a few days and it is still working. need a new door switch if'/when it quits next time.
the door switch keeps the washer from running with the door open, it tells you the door is open by flashing the "wash" light when you try to start it. cheesy switch, my washer is only a few years old. i tried all the other things suggested, power on and off and hold down different combo's of buttons while standing on your head with your right eye closed, none of that worked so out came the screw driver.
figured if it was coming out to go to the dump i could not hurt it much more than it was at that time.
anyhow door switch was the problem, i hope this helps more people out there, i was close to throwing it out after not finding much for helpful advice online.

No lights present on a panel, doesn't start doesn't respond

make sure the breaker isn't tripped. If thats good it is possible the door latch isnt latching properly and the washer wont start when the door isnt closed

''clean'' light flashing (whirlpool Dishwasher GU2300XTLS1 model)

I had the same problem recently and a repair person came to my home to fix the dishwasher. He said he had to reset the control panel. He did this simply by making sure the soap dispenser door inside the washer was closed, then making sure the main dishwasher door was closed and locked. Then he quickly pushed the Heated Dry button and the Hight Temp wash button alternately. He said each button needed to be pushed twice within five seconds. After he did this all the lights on the control panel came on, then turned themselves off before the washer went in to a test cycle. This simple reset fixed the whole problem. Works great so far.

No electricity

I would check to ensure you have power to the dishwasher and that the door is closing/secure properly.

(i.e, Plugged-in properly under sink/back or washer, check for tripped circuit-breaker, and door latch is grabbing properly)

My belling dishwasher wont start, the lights are on but when I press programme the red light no longer skips along the options , it simply doesnt appear.

Hi just trying to solve a similar problem. My machine would turn on but would not fill. It could be that your cold water filter is blocked. If no or reduced water pressure then the machine will not operate correctly. Take off back panel and you should see the filter assembly. GIve this a clean and see what happens.
We have 14 of these dishwashers and so far they have all proven to be very reliable machines. This is the first issue in 4 years.

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher--model #KUDS01DJ

On mine the "normal" light was the one that was flashing; after a cycling of the breaker switch in the electrical main panel and closing the washer door, it went to a 2 minute rinse before shutdown.
