Bosch dishwasher will not drain - causing moldy odor

Dishwasher is about 7 years old and water has always remained in the in the base - not actually on the floor of the dishwasher but in the lower part where the spinning washer part it. I take a food baster and remove it to prevent odor from sitting water. Can you help? Thank you.

    My Bosch dishwasher is 11 years old and has run well until now. It won't drain and will not run at all. When the dial to run is turned, you can hear the timer running, but the typical start-up does not happen. I'm wondering if the drain pump has stopped working and that this sends a signal for the rest of the process to run. I tried to clear the slots in the drain area, but that has no effect. What do you think?

Hello Mimhoff it depends on how much water is down there. The sump area always has a little water in it to prevent the circulation pump seals from sticking. Usually around 1 to 2 inches. If there is more than that, check the slots at the bottom of the sump on the left side for being clogged and check the end of the drain hose to make sure it is clear. If you are getting a moldy/odor from the dishwasher, try running Dishwasher Magic or Tang thru the dishwasher. This will remove any build up of food or detergent from the dishwasher. If you are running the dishwasher every few days and just scraping your dishes, then either leave the door ajar or run the rinse & hold cycle to help keep the odor down. Bosch doesn't reccommend running bleach thru the dishwasher as this can cause damage to the rubber seals. However 2 tablespoons of bleach once a year won't hurt.

Where to I check to see where filter is on dishwasher


I do not think there is a replaceable filter on this dishwasher - it is supposed to be self cleaning. If you put some bleach in the dishwasher that should knock any smell out of any standing water. If the odor remains, perhaps it is another source? Something behind or under? I once had a terrible odor from the fridge and cleaned the entire thing out with bleach water - still remained. Finally found a dead mouse behind fridge...

There is a smell in the dishwasher and on the dishes when clean


I suspect stagnant water is laying in the bottom areas. You will have to lay the machine on it's back to access the pump.

Dishwasher: BOSCH SHE43 - pump keeps draining


Your dishwasher is stuck in flood mode. Bosch dishwashers are built with flood switches located in the bottom base pan of the dishwasher. The flood switch is connected to a rod that activates a small interlock switch. When water enters the base pan on a Bosch dishwasher, a Styrofoam puck lifts the rod, activating the flood switch.

When the flood switch is activated, the dishwasher will go into a no-fill, only-drain mode. The drain motor may also run with the door open to the unit. This is definitely a sign there is water in the base pan. This can be caused by the drain being clogged. There are two ways to fix:

1. You can uninstall the dishwasher and tip it forward to about a 45 degree angle to drain the water out of the base pan. (This is probably why Ian Bint's solution fixed the problem.) Be sure to put a towel under the dishwasher first so that the water is soaked up in the towel instead of going all over the floor. Once you've drained all the water out of the base pan, reinstall the dishwasher and begin a cycle. If it fills and runs, you are good to go.

2. You can also unplug the unit, then remove the kick panel at the bottom in the front. (It's attached with two screws.) Then get some old washcloths or small towels and reach into the base pan below the dishwasher to soak up the water. The pan is directly behind the plastic base panel rim. Once the pan is empty and dry, your dishwasher will no longer be in "flood mode" and will run properly.

If the base pan keeps refilling with water and the no-fill problem returns, there is definitely another issue, such as a clogged drain. At this point, you need to decide whether to invest in an expert evaluation by a certified Bosch repairman and make the necessary repairs, or buy a new dishwasher.

Sink was pluged plunged and now the dischwasher will not fill it's keeping draining the water out all the time


Bosch has a safety float switch under the dishwasher basin. If water leaks into this area, the float rises and turns on the drain pump to clear out the water in the dishwasher. Hope I explained that ok :)
Anyways, usually a leak somewhere causes this and unless the leak is fixed and water is removed or evaporates, the dishwasher will remain in the drain cycle.

Odor 2 days after cycle


After you have unloaded the the dishwasher, prop the door open with the upper rack out.
Let the inside air out. After a short time the remaining moisture will evaporate. Stainless steel dishwashers are prone to an odor if you do not use the machine daily. There are after market products that are citrus based that will help. Check with Bosch.
