Bosch SHV4040UC Dishwasher continues to pump ONLY

WE had a back up in out sink last night. Today plumber came and cleared the pipe. When we had back up we plunged and this caused water to go into the dishwasher which was in the middle of a cycle at the time. Now the dishwasher keeps pumping only. No water is coming into the machine. Pumps out any water I toss in. I took of kick plate and did feel some water in this white tray. I have very little access to this try. I sopped up what little water I could touch with papertowel. My big question is, where is the float for the anti flood? Can I see it or feel it from the very front? Like I said, I have limited access. Only can fit my fingers in this tray up to my knuckles. Thanks in advance for you reply!

Sink backs up with water when running faucet,dishwasher does not drain,all pipes under sink clear

We had this problem and found out that the pipe leading away from the house was clogged. Have a plumber look (with a camera) down your clean out, and see if that is the problem. They can snake it from the clean out and clear out tree roots or whatever is the problem.

It may simply be where the dishwasher drain attaches to your garbage disposal. There should be a hose clamp and can easily be taken off. If the clog's not right at the connection, chances are it's far. If there is an air gap, it will be within a foot of the connection. Just shake the DW drain into a bucket and you should be good to go. Not sure why the plumber wouldn't do that though....being a plumber, I would never leave a customer with a clog. Anyway, good luck!

I have a 2004-05 Bosch dishwasher SHU43C. The motor is running, but it is not pumping water. Is there a belt in this? What do I need to look at to check out this problem?

I just paid $200 because I had the same problem and couldn't figure out what the issue was. My problem was the water in the bottom of the dishwasher couldn't be pumped out completely because the disharge line was clogged (only a little) from food that backflowed into it from my sink. The repair man cleared that out and now it works like new. The ultimate issue is that I have a garbage disposal and the dishwasher discharge line goes directly into the pipe above the garbage disposal, so if food/water is in the sink, it can flow back towards the dishwasher. I have since taped the discharge line to the top of the sink to minimize the chance for food to flow back towards the dishwasher.

Just had bosch dishwasher installed by plumber but it is still not filling up with water. it works after we poor a pot of water in it.

Locate the hot water supply hose under the sink that connects and follow it over to where it will connect to the back of the dishwasher. Look for sharp bends in the hose. There should be a valve where the hose connects to the under-sink plumbing. Rotate that valve counter-clockwise to assure that it is open.

If the problem continues, the solenoid valve may have immediately failed. That valve is just behind where the hose connects to the dishwasher.

Good Luck!

Kenwood Slimline Dishwasher KDW8ST2A

I have a Kenwood Kdw8st2a and have been constantly plagued by the E4 overfill error.

Lifting the front of the dishwasher and tilting it backwards seemed to clear the E4 error only for it to come back after the next wash.

I found eventually that the connection to the U bend under the sink was too narrow and was almost blocked hence the dishwasher was not emptying properly.

I disconnected the dishwasher waste pipe and ran the waste into a bucket for about 6 cycles and it worked fine.

Eventually drilled through the kitchen wall and fitted a lower direct waste pipe to the drain. Overkill maybe buit it hasn't done an E4 since.

Pump won't stop draining

you will almost certainly have a build up of water in the base. remove the water and retry. check to see if limit switch is not sticking or has possibly gone faulty.failing this, your board is faulty.
