Question about Dishwashers
My dishwasher stopped advancing at 49 minutes (regular cycle). Water was left in the bottom of the unit.
I read this site (and the user's manual) where it said to check the drain, it might be clogged and therefore won't advance to rinse.
I disconnected the hose from the garbage disposal and checked it as far back as I could.
From inside, I took out the filters, etc, and found stuff in the little propeller, which I cleaned.
When I turned it on again to test, it started at 68 minutes and counted down one minute to 67, then stopped counting down. The unit continued to run, but it was no longer adding water to the unit.
I was going to change out the control module, but I have the following questions:
Is this the next logical step or have I jumped ahead to farin my trouble shooting steps?
Would the numbers still light if the control module weren't working?
How do I take the cover panel of the door off in order to access the electronics? The explosion diagrams at the Bosch site don't quite indicate this.
Thanks for your help.
Your problem is the electronic control board and unfortant that you cant repair or even get parts for it . Only if you get the whole control board will you fix your problem assy unless you find a good appliance man that repairs electronic control boards

SOURCE: Bosch SHU4300 Water Fill Issue.
Similar problem for us turned out to be water accumulating in the tray which set off the float switch. I vacuumed the water out and function returned to normal. However, we are now facing a repairman's assertion the clay in our well clogged the water inlet systems necessitating $285 in repair parts and labor.

When the water stops too soon, it could be the "over flow" is stuck in the downward position, therefore the dishwasher thinks it's going to over flow. Check that out. Otherwise I'm afraid this sounds like the circuit board is shot.

you have to replaced the main control resoldering wont fix it because the relay itself has gone bad replacing the board will solve the problem

Turn off the power source to the garbage disposal. Take the drain hose from the dishwasher off the connector going to the disposal (if connected). Insert a flat blade screwdriver in the drain hose fitting and tap a few times with a hammer. The plastic plug will pop off inside the garbage disposal. Reach inside from the top of the disposal to retrieve the plastic plug. Sometimes you have to use a little force to tap the plug out. Hope this helps you.

There should be an overload button somewhere on the bottom of the disposal motor. This is to prevent the motor from trying to run if the chopping blades are jammed, otherwise the motor would burn up.
First, try to move the blades with something like a broom handle. Using a flashlight you should be able to see the blades. there's probably three of them. try to make sure each one can move even a little bit.
Next, with the disposal switch in the off position, find the overload button and push it in, Then turn on the disposal switch and see if it runs. If the overload button trips off again, repeat the above steps until the blades can turn.
Let me know how this goes. Loringh

Have you tried canceling the cycle? To cancel, turn the on/off switch to on, then press and hold for three seconds the two buttons labeled "Cancel Drain". Keep the door closed for the next minute so that the dishwasher can complete the cycle. During this time the pump will remove any water from the washer. Also you will notice that Bosch dishwashers always leave a little water in the system to keep the seals from drying out and going bad.
Hope this helps
