Question about Bosch SHU9916 Dishwasher
Mod# SHU9915UC- approx. 10 yrs. old-- When press the "start" button you hear the motor(hum) start but no water starts-- simply keeps "humming" and does not proceed through cycles.. Appreciate any ideas.. Al
sounds like the drain pump could be jammed with something like broken glass or broken plate. if you remove the filter you should have access to the drain pump which is usually under a removable cover. remove the cover and with a torch see if there is any blockage and make sure the drain pump freely turns.
if this is ok check under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. sometimes food can block up at this connection and the unit cannot drain. if the unit cannot drain it will then not fill with water. each step of the cycle needs to be complete before it can move onto the next step in the cycle. Remove the drain hose and have a look in the u bend for any blockages.
most faults with dishwashers are drain faults.
Hope this helps.

Hello Al. Your dishwasher motor is heading south. Based upon the age of this machine I recommend replacement as opposed to repair. The good news is the new ones are much more economical to operate and they do a much better job. Joe
