To cut a long story short, lower the drain pipe as close to the floor as you can. Some dish washers have a non return rubber which holds the water in the cabinet until asked to drain.Meaning water wont just flow out with pipe being low.(Im assuming the drain pump is operating correctly).Check if this alteration makes any difference.

Bosh diswasher SHE45M02UC/48 doesnt stop when I open the door


That is the drain pump that is running, and it indicates that there is water in the base of the unit. You will need to unplug the dishwasher and pull it out. You can tip it forward to drain the water out of the bottom through the holes in front. Have some towels ready to catch the water. Now if you plug the dishwasher back in, the pump should not run But now comes the hard part - figuring out where the leak is coming from and fixing it. It could be from a hose, the drain pump, or the main pump. Bosch dishwashers are notoriously hard to work on, so I recommend calling in a professional DW repairman.

The machine stopped with 33 minutes remaining on 96. There is a "pumping" sound but no water comes in. The dial says it is on rinse but it does not rinse. Bosch Dishwasher EN: SHU4326UC/U12 FD8007. 260415...


If you have water filling up in the sump, you will get that scenario. If water is out of the tub, pull unit out and tilt backwards about 45 degrees. If water comes out from the base(sump), then you know you have a leak and need to have it attended to. Note, if water does come out when tilting the machine backwards, you will find it will work again until base is full again.(Switch off before tilting the machine backwards just for safety.

I have a Bosch dishwasher model SHU66. Clean water slowly pools in the base when the dishwasher is not in use. We need to drain the DW every 12 hours or water will overflow onto the floor. Is this an isue...


IT SOUND LIKE IT IS A WATER VALVE ISSUE.DRAIN AND CANCELTHE MACHINE FIRST THEN TRY TO SHUT OFF THE WATER GOING INTO THE MACHINE PROBABLY UNDER THE SINK. SEE IF THE WATER IS STILL COMING IN TO UNIT. IT SHOULD NOT BE. THEN TURN ON WATER IF THE WATER STARTS TO FILL MACHINE THEN CHANGE THE WATER VALVE.

Bosch DW model # SHU43C05UC. When dw is turned on it is supposed to pump out whatever is is sump. Pump never shuts off. So it never goes into a wash cycle.


This could be that the anti flood device (protection device) has detected a water leak / spill and it automatically puts the pump motor on and does not do eanything else until the water spill / leak is rectified. The protection device is a polystireene float and micro switch at the base of the washer. Make sure that water at the base is not causing the float to activate the microswitch. Dry the water and rectify the leak / spill and this should sort the problem out.

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on....


From your description, I doubt that the problem is door latch is the cause.
The first thing that a modern dishwasher does before it begins to fill with water is run the drain pump.  It appears that this DW is not progressing to the next cycle (inlet water) and because the pump runs even when the door is open, I agree that the controller card may have failed.
If possible, inspect all the wire connections (remove main power before you do this) ... if there is a loose connection, the controller could do odd things.
Good Luck!  Please report back what you find, OK?

Dishwasher will not take in water


On bosch dishwasher if the base senses a water leak the unit will not fill & the drain pump will come on. I recommend checking for water in the base & locating the source of the leak if you see water in the base. Other possibilities; fill switch, water level switch or water valve. There is no reset for this problem.

Bosch dishwasher SHU66C02UC


You have water in the base of the machine. There is a flood float in the bottom so if any water gets into the base, it will shut off the water and run the drain pump as long as the power button is on. So shut off the breaker, remove the toe kick, and remove any water that is down there. Now start the machine and see if water is leaking into the base. If there isn't any water, an the dw is still running the drain pump, then with a wooden spoon raise the red plastice stick on the left side of the dishwasher up and down. It is possible that the overfil float is stuck. If this makes the dw start filling, then run cooking oil thru the dishwasher on the scrub cycle to remove excessive detergent. If you are in hard water, then the water deposits have caused this. Run citric acid ( Tang orange drink, Dishwasher Magic, or such) thru the dishwasher to remove this.

Drain pump and no water going in


It sound as a water level switch issue.The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the service panel you will find it easily. Clear tube first from any obstruction, In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube. In case it doesn't react, you should replace it. Good luck !
