Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher
It washes all the way to Cycle 1 and then it just keeps going, and going never getting to Clean. It can run for 2 hours if I let it and still doesn't signal Clean.
I tried changing from Econ to Reg wash but that make any difference. I filled the soap and rinse agent cup, also.
The local repairman really is unfamilar with Bosch. We live 3 hours from where the machine is located and the nearest Bosch repair is 2 hours away. The model number has worn off. I believe that it is a SHU5300. Help! I don't want to buy another machine. I was told to try to reset it by pressing power,holding the second and fourth button, wait 10 seconds to see it that did it. Then they said if that didn't work to get a new machine. I got this info from calling the Bosch 800 number.
Hello Carol, welcome to "fixya". I can understand your frustration but I have a solution, whether it is one you can benefit from I can only hope, since there doesn't appear to be a local tech proficient with B/S/H/ products, it's going to depend on how handy you or someone close to you can be. ( B/S/H/ is the company responsible for Bosch, Thermador, Gaggenau and Siemens ) The reason your dishwasher is displaying a "1" is the control has detected a heating error. The error code is displayed by the number "1". Here`s the most likely reason why it has detected the error... But first I need to say I think it's crazy you'd be advised to consider buying a new dishwasher, for an experienced tech ( or at least on who specializes in "hi-end" product ) it is a pretty easy repair. 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 once the error is detected by the control and the # 1 is displayed, unless interupted via pressing the two buttons for "cancel". 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 at "1" ( 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.
