Re: pump continues to run

My dishwasher now seems to be OK after playing up for 4 months. It now goes through its cycle perfectly. It seems to me to be the float sensor / switch thats at fault by being slightly blocked and therefore not being sensitive enough. Chuck plenty of water around the sump, clear out and clean around all the holes very carefully with a flexible piece of wire and put the machine through the shortest cycle many times. That seems to have worked for me!

Re: pump continues to run

Make sure you dont have water sitting under dishwasher in tray. it can cause pump only to run. If there is water in bottom, look under water valve, there is a float-is it surrounded with water?

Bosch classixx dishwasher starts cycle then says " check water" and then seems to do same thing again and again, pumping water in and draining it again

Probably jug impellor part number (424099) from espares, buyspares or bosch direct.
No fix unfortunately, this problem manifests as unit starts to fill and motor does not switch on. Eventually the unit overfills and the pump and fill start to alternate and check water light comes on. If this is the fault then this part is the solution it runs in line with the inlet valve and side fill chamber, take the left side panel off (looking from the front) it is tucked away behind the hoses bottom left (white plastic disc with two wire connection tag). Check water light can also come on if the unit is not pumping, if this is the case, repost and I will try and talk you through clearing this fault.

Hi I have an Bosch SGs43c02gb/35 and it does not drain all of the water out when it has finished the cycle, I have cleaned the filters out which were relatively clean and run it with a dish washer cleaner...


It is quite common for a dishwasher to not drain because either the drain hose or the air gap (if the unit has one) is clogged up. Drain hose clogs commonly occur where the hose is attached to the main household drain line, or where the hose connects with the garbage disposer. Try removing the drain hose to unclog any debris. Don't forget to reattach the hose before you start your dishwasher again.

The pump assembly is comprised of a pump, wash impeller, and drain impeller. The pump ejects the water from the unit, the wash impeller pushes water through the spray arm, and the drain impeller directs the water towards the drain port. Examine your dishwasher's pump assembly. Clean out any debris that may be blocking it. Replace the pump assembly if any of its parts appear to be worn or defective.

It isn't very common, but sometimes a dishwasher's pump assembly is driven by a belt. If that belt becomes worn and defective, then it cannot properly run the pump that drains your dishwasher's tub. If your dishwasher uses a drive belt, examine it now. If it shows signs of wear, replace it.

A defective timer could interfere with a dishwasher's ability to drain properly. Test your dishwasher's timer mechanism. If it is faulty, replace it. Keep in mind that you can replace either the entire timer assembly or just the timer's motor.

The motor plays a key role in a dishwasher's ability to drain water. If your dishwasher's motor is not functioning properly, it will negatively affect the draining capability of your machine. Test your dishwasher's motor for continuity. If it fails the test, replace the motor.

In some models, a valve has to open in order for the water to drain out of the dishwasher. This valve is controlled by a solenoid, but it is the timer that decides when the valve should open. If your timer is working fine, check the drain valve and its solenoid. If need be, replace them.

Water not draining from the machine

If it IS the pump, it’s often because some relatively minor item (piece of cocktail stick/bit of nutshell/etc) has found its way past the filters and is blocking the blades of the pump. It is relatively simple to remove the inlet hose to the pump and clear the blockage (a pair of grips to pinch and remove the retaining clip, then the hose will slide off the fitting on the pump). I did this several times on my previous (Hotpoint) machine – and suspect it is no harder on the Bosch (which I now have). If that doesn’t work, you are half-way to replacing the pump, which is not a difficult DIY job and I’m surprised any competent professional repair man wanted to write off a machine where the pump had failed. A new pump should cost around £40-£50 – less than a quarter of the cost of a new machine. DIY fitting would maybe take a couple of hours; a pro ought to do it in less than an hour.
