My new bosch dishwasher will not drain

We had the dishwasher installed on thursday, tech tested the draining of the water by pushing two buttons at the same time. we have run the machine on several different cycles and it will not drain and we are taking the water out manually. we checked the hose by sucking on it and cannot get anything to come out.

Bosch SL1501B dishwasher doesn't drain water after the washing cycle. Also with new drain pump. What else could it be?


Check the following.
1. The drain hose has to be discharging at a high enough point to prevent water flowing back into the machine.
2. Make sure your drain hose is not twisted or kinked.
3 . Make sure your drain line is not blocked push a flexible hose down it to dislodge any fat/debris
4.If your drain line discharges into a shared drain with another appliance i.e. garbage disposal make sure it is not blocked.
5. You may have a blockage at the inlet to the pump which would slow down the pumping rate,
Since you mentioned the mushroom shaped float allowing the washer to empty this may be defective.
See the link attached.
Hope this helps.

Dishwasher runs, water doesn't drain out


sounds to me that you may have some suds residue in the dishwasher that keeps it from draining completely. Get you some dishwasher cleaner which you can purchase at wal-mart or wherever you buy your detergent, and clean out your dishwasher. It is a inexpensive test. Alot less expensive than having a tech come to your house. Make sure that your drain hose is mounted higher that where it goes into the drain. This is also a common problem that I encounter in the field. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you futher.

Water does not drain from Bosch Model SHX33A05 dishwasher. When trying to initiate Cancel/Drain (pushing simultaneously the 2 outer buttons) the 2 lights do not light up simultaneously - instead,...


I pulled the unit out and it turned out that the contractor pinched the drain hose between the back of the unit and the wall. Before, I was erroneously informed that the unit went through a complete washing cycle OK after the installation, so I did not expect the pinched hose.

Bosch DLX series didn't drain, now no power


I had a Bosch DLX series dishwasher that had multiple problems.

First, it had greyish water in the bottom and pushing the power button did not turn on any lights. it had mostly finished a cycle, but not quite. my first thought was to clean it out. i sponged out all the water and removed and cleaned out the filters from the bottom which were all quite nasty. i found food, tiny bones, etc. I cleaned it out and that did nothing but was still probably the cause of the problem. I called Bosch tech support and asked about areset switch. There is none. They told me to switch off the circuit breaker for 30 MINUTES to reset everything. I did that which did not fix the problem.

I then examined the connector wires (connecting the electric to my house wiring) which are in the front under the kick plate, and discovered that they had MELTED! The wiring supplied by Bosch was stranded wire, and my home wiring is solid core. i trimmed the burnt stuff and reconnected it with new wire nuts. if this happens again i plan to disassemble the dishwasher's electric and replace the stranded wire with the good stuff.

That restored the electric and the lights and display. i then ran a test cycle and it seemed to just hum. my guess after googling a bit was that the float was stuck in the up position, and it was trying to drain. This site http://www.applianceaid.com/boschDW.html told me how to run the test mode.

"To start test program, press and hold both POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH program buttons, then turn unit on by pressing ON/OFF button. When program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press ON/OFF button."

The test mode tested out all functions which I think wound up reseting the float switch which actually fixed the rest of it.

Bosch Dishwasher


what is the model #?... there are 2 buttons when pushed together it will drain the water out..try the button to the left next to power scrub... and economy...hold the 2 buttons for 3 sec. you will hear you drain pump running.. if you don't hear any water draining out into your sink, you might have a clog d/w drain line.
