Bosch SHU3302 diswasher - lack of water pressure

Hi,

My dishwasher works, but has a lack of water pressure running through its cycle. I checked for any plugged hoses and the like, but all seems fine.
I ran the test programs but they did not indicate anything wrong.

Could it be the water inlet valve?

If you have water in the machine but it isn't pushing it or agitating the water you have a bad motor,if you think the valve is bad open the door and add water into the machine by hand with a bowl or glass,if it starts to agitate better then the valve isn't letting enough water in,the best way to check if it's spraying is pull out the top rack put a glass right side up in each corner of upper rack,if the glasses have a good amount of water in them after running for like 30 seconds then it sounds like it's working correctly,i don't know what you mean by water pressure,when it stops filling after like 2 minutes open the door,if the water level looks low or lower than normal then i would say you have a bad water valve,if water looks normal but not spraying or agitating the water you could have a bad motor or something is clogged stopping the water from spraying,but like i said when it starts to run and it sounds like the water isn't agitating as hard as normal add a few glasses of water and start it,if it sounds stronger then i would say the valve is bad not letting enough water in.

    one more thing about some of the bosch dish washers,there's a base under it,say there was to much suds or the machine leaked water gets into the bottom base,people hear the pump constantly running but all it's doing is trying to pump out the water in the base so check the base for water in it,just remove the bottom front panel and get a paper towel and stick it into the base,if there's water in it then you can keep sticking paper towels in till it drys up or i use a shop vac with a piece of plastic hose i stick the hose in the base and vac it out.

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.

SOURCE: Bosch SHU9925UC Dishwasher Stuck in Initial Drain Cycle

OK Bosch Dw fans.........here is the fix if your SHX dishwasher is stuck on the drain cycle. This may save you a couple hundred bucks.......so listen up. There is a tendency for the very small float switch to STICK in the ON position, which will cause the drain motor to continuously run......and DISallow any other function to work. DISCONNECT POWER. Did I mention to disconnect power? Take off the front base cover....2 torx screws. Remove the other 2 torx screws in the metal clips that fasten the top of the DW to the underside of your countertop. NOW...carefull slide your DW out. You may have to disconnect your water and elec supply if you do not have enough slack to pull it out. Once the DW is out of the cabinet, remove the shiny metal cover on the LEFT side by removing a single torx screw. You will now see a small plastic assembly with a red plastic piece that moves up and down as it rides on a small red styrofoam float. This up and down movement engages a small white plastic switch visible with 3 wires coming out of it. You can carefully UNSNAP this switch out of its mount, and pull the 3 wire plug off of it. THere is a small square blue plastic tab that is supposed to easily slide in and out of the switch. If it is stuck IN, you can sometimes tap the switch and the blue tab will pop out, which is what it is supposed to do without tapping it. You can carefully with a knife blade separate the case on this switch and note the way it comes apart. Clean out any micro debris out of the small channels that the blue tab ride up and down in. Then set it in the channel while holding up the small switch tab that rides on it and see if it slides up and down without sticking! I like to take a piece of wax paper and rub in on the channel and blue tap to provide some lube for the switch to slide easily on. Now, put the switch back on and manually move the red plastic assembly up and down while you are watching the blue tab. The tab should ride up and down with the red assy. If not, buy a new switch. Google the # on the switch and order one. If the tab slides up and down, put things together in reverse order and give it a try. Hope it works for you. This should take you an hour give or take. Take the $200 you just saved and have a night out on me. ........so even though these German Appliances have a good name because of past reliability, the american tendency to value engineer them with plastic parts to reduce costs and increase profit.........just cost you an hour of your time. Will we ever learn.? ......if it ain't broke, value engineer it until it only lasts through the warranty period so you can then collect service and parts blood money from your fellow american.

SOURCE: LG Dishwasher LDS5811ST 1E error code

I had a LG certified repairman come out and fix. The electrical wires within the door were melted into the "tar" (sound deafening spray) and one wire actualy sheered. Apparently the drying cycle heats the tar and the wires become embeded and melt into the tar. This is what was causing the error code. After the wire was tested and spliced everything worked great. Long term...The door/electrical harness was replaced by LG.

Bosch diswasher,model Sms68m02AU trips circuit breaker


rcd units trip from the milliamps that are in a short
it trips the rcd to prevent electrocution and acts in nano seconds besides being a circuit breaker for excessive current
the trip can be from moisture allowing a current leakage to ground or some other simple operation

Bosch dishwasher still some soap left on dishes


Most of the causes of the problem that you are describing are related to the way the dishes are loaded in the unit. To test this, run it empty and see if the dish soap dissipates.
