    I have a 1-1/2 year old Bosch dishwasher model #SHV 46C 13UC that just stopped working last week. There are no lights being lit displaying status or on/off. I have checked all breakers (twice) in the house and all are functioning fine.  There is no obstructions in the base of the unit inhibiting drainage or flow. Any suggestions?.

    Unplug the dishwasher, remove the lower front plate,(two screws) and uncover the electrical connection box on the lower right hand (1 screw) check to see that all three wires are properly connected and not burned off.

    Good luck

    I have the SHU 43 Bosch dishwasher. It seems like a lemon. Ever since we purchased it, it has been unreliable to turn on. Sometimes it will make a noise suggesting that it is starting and the next morning, the 0 cycle time remaining button would be on, but the dished had not been washed. A repair man could not replicate the problem. We discoverd that opening the dishwasher, then closing it could reset it and it would re-start. (Frustrating to baby-sit a dishwasher, but it worked.) Now the 0 cycle time button is on and the dishwasher will not start and attempts to reset it are not working.

    Any advice?

    I this this one may be a lemon, but I will never purchase another Bosch.

Since the power is fine, now to get to the issue. You will need to pull the front panel and see if there is power to the on/off switch. There should be the same as what is at the junction box of the incoming power. If there isn't the proper voltage there, then you have a broken wire. If the voltage is there, then check the voltage going over to the control with the on/off switch in the on position. If power there and not lighting up or starting. Then the control is bad.

Bosh dishwasher loose handle

I really don't wish to seem a jerk here, but your question leaves much necessary information out. Bosh makes more than one model of dishwasher, and that model information is essential for a good answer.

Additionally, a loose lever assembly may need something as simple as tightening a couple screws to full assembly adjustment. Also, it will make a huge difference if your children have used the door as a diving board, jumping on it as if it were a playground ride.

With 40 yrs in the industry, repairing dish washers,stoves, furnaces, and air conditioners; I have seen many remarkable things done by users to appliances. More information is needed to give you a real answer.

I think the rinse cycle is not working on my Bosh dishwasher. It is leaving a soap residue on the dishes.


The scum, film and white residue problems have started since the reduction of phosphates in dishwasher detergents.

Here is a tip that will help you to solve the problem of films, residue, and scum in your dishwasher.

Bosh does no wash dishesses

Do you have any further information? Do you hear the water arms moving? Is this an issue of the detergent, possibly, or is this definitely something with the dishwasher? If it is the latter, I would suggest taking the racks out, and checking the bottom for anything clogging the works. A small lid or silverware may have dropped down there.

Bosh dish waher

Does it make the same noise when it's just filling or just when the motor starts? Usually just filling the dishwasher opens a valve and doesn't run the pump. If it makes noise during filling the valve may be getting hot and shorting, or may have a loose connection, or air may be in the water supply line causing the valve to bounce. If it takes a long time to fill the filter may be clogged.
