Bosch Dishwasher SHU43C02UC

I have a 3 year old Bosch dishwasher and just recently it has started to go into a 'sleep mode'. It will start its cylce and then just go blank for a while and then pick back up right where it left off. When it goes blank it is off for 5 minutes sometimes 45. It will do this 3-4 times during a complete cylce, any ideas?

First, I'm not a BOSCH tech.
I just installed an ELECTROLUX dishwasher last month and had a similar problem. We also have an older Kenmore dish washer in another part of the house. The Kenmore is at least 15 years old and the touch pads are very soft and easy to select. The new one did not select either. I have to firmly depress the pad (which seems to be a stiffer plastic) and make sure I'm pressing down on the right spot to get things to work.
* I recently came across the same problem. Pressing buttons won't change the displayed setting and it seemed to be 'stuck' in one mode but I coudn't tell if it was in between a cycle or just stuck. I've found that holding the 'start' button down (firmly) for 10 seconds will cancel all functions and it went back to normal. Since then it gets stuck several times over the week. I don't know if one of the kids is opening it up as I only turn it on at night just before going to sleep. So, someone may be sneaking around for a mid nite kitchen raid.
* If you still have problems then check your warranty as many of these machines have parts warranty for 3-5 years. The 'switch' section if bad must be completely replaced as it is all one piece. These membrane switches will get damaged from a sharp fingernail or using a knife or fork to force the button down. (happened with the Kenmore, Kids kept stabbing it to get it to turn on.)

My bosch shu43c02uc wont work at all and i think i need to reset it, how would you reset it and can you think of anything else that will help with the problem?


Welcome to Fixya.

Based on your post,"my bosch shu43c02uc wont work at all..."

This is the most common reason for these Bosch dishwashers not having power.

I would start by first shutting off the breaker. Then removing the kick plate ( access panel at the bottom ) and checking the wiring at the junction box for the dishwasher 120vac supply line.

Remove the murret's and visually inspect the wire for "resistance burn" and strip the wires back and install new fastener's if necessary to repair.



This is actually quite common to find a wire connector come loose due to improper fastening and once the unit is in use for a while the connections heat

Dishwasher never cleans, glasses gritty dirty -- Bosch terrible s

you obviously need to check and make sure that you've cleaned your filter system. it needs to be cleaned every couple of months. and also make sure that your washing fans, the ones that spray water, aren't clogged. they need to be washed out and de-clogged regularly as well... i had this same problem.. but it worked fine once i cleaned the system.
