Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher
My dishwasher does not count down. It took 2 hours to go from 77 to 43, never got below 31. What can I do?
It sounds to me by your description the unit is getting hung up trying to heat, hence the estimated time jumps around.
The issue with your Bosch dishwasher likely lye`s within`the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). This is why it runs forever unless pressing the two buttons for "cancel".
The displayed numbers are not "actual" time's, it never is on Bosch. Basically there are far too many variables to be "actual" time, call it a guess by the control based on data gathered thru-out the cycle if you like.
Read my solution and then you can make an educated decision when I'm through on whether to replace or repair, that is obviously up to you.
To repair your unit It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. This will be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sit`s ( because it can`t heat to advance or until canceled ) trying to heat the water.
**Further to this, if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)**
**Please disconnect the power before attempting any service to the dishwasher. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau, to service your machine.**
Hope this answer`s your question's, let me know if I can assist you further. Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiries. Please take a moment and rate this solution to it's helpfulness to you and leave a testimony if you're satisfied.
