    ok maybe I wasnt clear... but if you press the power button to off mid way through a cycle....the next time you start the dishwasher will it start irregardless where it left off to the beggining of the cycle?...or does it just resume where it left off...I want to start it again at the beginning of the cycle...thanks Marc.

Check the drain pump. First, manually initiate drain by pressing the second and fourth buttons on the keypad at the same time. If it pumps out, disregard the rest. If it doesn't at least hum, check for power at the motor.
Remove lower rack, lower spray arm, and screens in bottom, remove all water inside. Check for debris under pump cover in bottom of sump. The drain pump suction is through the hole on the left.
Behind the toe panel on the left is the drain motor, If no debris was found inside, the drain pump may have failed. Remove outer door panel (you may need to remove the two screws on the sides of the control panel.) Remove the metal panel across the top of the motor area , disconnect hose in front of pump, disconnect wires to pump, press tab at top of pump and rotate clockwise to remove pump. The impeller could be loose on the motor shaft, or the motor windings failed.

First check the machine is getting electricity (and the problem isn't a blown fuse!)

A very likely cause is that the solenoid on the inlet valve has gone. Rarer possibilities to consider are water turned off at the mains, a blocked inlet strainer (where the inlet hose mates with the valve), or a problem with the programme controller.

The inlet valve is near the top of the machine, and is the thing the hose from your outside water supply screws into. The solenoid is the electrical bit that clips onto the top of the valve body.

I suggest you go out to your local appliance spares shop and buy a replacement solenoid for not much, fit it and see what happens. It is possible to do a series of tests to confirm first that really is the problem - but with the solenoids being cheap, I'm inclined to suggest not messing around with test gear, water and mains electricity.

When replacing the solenoid, make really sure the machine is unplugged from the electricity supply.

Usually best to take the top panel off to gain access (try taking the trim across the back of the top panel off, then sliding the panel off backwards).

Disconnect the cables from the old solenoid. Prise it off the valve body. Snap the new one on in its place and refit the cables (it doesn't really matter which way round they go, but one way will probable look neater than the other).

Hi Kathleen,

Welcome to Fixya, you came to the right place.

I`m not sure what model you have, but typically you should be able to select another cycle by choosing a button and pressing it twice quickly.

For instance if you want`"normal" press the normal button twice in 2-4 seconds and it should go to normal cycle.

Let me know how you make out. Good luck and thanks for visiting "fixya".

Please take moment and rate this solution favorable if indeed it helped you, if not let me know and we`ll move forward from here.

SOURCE: My dishwasher(Bosch) makes sqeeling sound

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description " makes squealing sound almost like beeping at the beginning of its cycle "...it is likely to be either the pump impeller or the inlet valve.

With the Bosch built line of dishwasher`s this is a known problem...the carbon ring ( spring ) of the impeller pump seal kit. ( make sure it is indeed a SHU9915UC before ordering parts )

**Most common in units not used regularly, i.e. in a holiday cottage or vacation property, but time to time on daily used as well unfortunately...but also due to the heat from normal wear & tear**


You first must determine which is the source of course. Does the noise begin after filling with water and the pump starts, or does it begin upon the filling of water ?


If it's the valve, make sure the water supply line is completely "open" and if so replace the valve with part #425458

i.e.

macmarkus_285.jpg



If it is the motor wash impeller squeeling It can be remedied by one of two methods, replacing the entire motor & pump assy part # 442548...

i.e.

e3a16c5.jpg

This retails between $99.00us. to as much as $170.00us. depending where you look. I usually go through "searspartsdirect.com" for about $100us. ( you can also investigate "repairclinic.com" or "appliancepartspros.com" to name a few.

Or if you are mechanically inclined, replacing the pump impeller kit. part # 167085

i.e.

08f460f.jpg
The kit is typically around $50 -$75us, hence it can be cheaper when factoring labour for the complete motor/pump assy.

This is a pretty involved repair to explain, in fact I think it is harder to explain than actually do...but I`ve done many.

If you`d like to provide me with an email address I can attach a file in "pdf" showing you step by step how you can do this without much cost at all really...likely your time will be the greatest expense.

Let me know how you`d like to proceed and I`ll help in whatever manner I can.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Hi,
No, the problem in not the unit, it is programed to run up to 3-3 1/2 hours for a single cycle. You can select quick wash to shorten this time down, but this is not a problem with the unit. It wants to assure you have clean dishes and hot enough water to complete the program.
In testing one a few days ago, I ran into this same problem, I reread the time charts and cycles and found this to be normal for this manufacture.
I hope this answered your question.

Bosch SHU3036UC/U11 dishwasher does not stop filling with water


Hi,
It sounds as if the main program board has developed a fault - as it should come to a complete stop. The fact it kept the water valve open with the door open is a serious fault- so I would have it checked before using it again.

Most machines have a water-stop feature - so if it develops a leak - it will shut off the water. This clearly didn't happen.

Hello Ramona Doug,
Try disconnecting power from your dishwasher for a few minutes to clear the memory and then reapply power again. Start a wash cycle without dishes on the hottest water setting and after a few minutes.. pause the wash and add a few cups of white vinegar to the wash water.,. that will help break up deposits in the system.. See if that gets you going properly.

Bosch dishwasher will not drain - causing moldy odor


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.

Bosch SHU9915UC Dishwasher - wash cycle won't happen


hi there your dishwasher has gone into flood protection mode ie. water has leaked into the base and activated the float switch.

to try and locate the leak tip your d/w back to drain the water from the base then remove both side panels and start a program to see if you can see where the water is leaking from, being careful not to touch anything while the d/w is running as live parts are exposed

hope this is of some help
