Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher
In the morning I turn my dish washer on the digital time reads 1:37 but it runs for about 4 hours. I was having a problem with the hot water but we had that fixed and it is very very hot.
Hello, welcome to Fixya. What you're describing sounds like a bad control. If the water at your water supply is indeed hot it shouldn't be an issue, however you can try running the hot water at your sink tap to insure the cold water is out of the lines just before you turn on the dishwasher. If it is what I suspect, the control, this won't make any difference but it's worth a try. If on the other hand the water is good and hot entering the machine, you likely have an issue with the control as I alluded to. repairclinic.com carries them as part # 1102296 at a retail price of $185.65US. as I type this today June 2,2010. however, I have a suggestion as to identifying the culprit, thus confirming or dismissing the cause... since the issue with your Bosch dishwasher potentially lye`s within`the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. You'll need to access the control for a visual inspection ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). This is possibly one of the reasons why it runs for 4hrs or more (unless pressing the two buttons for "cancel"). To inspect and possibly 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 runs & runs ( 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. I will look for your reply. Please do reply either way, I've found after answering many of these questions I'm left wondering if the info was of any use to those asking. 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. Good luck. macmarkus :)

I would like to add a comment but can't figure out how......
my dishwasher runs in the drain cycle and wont advance. it runs even with the door open. it turns on and off just fine, but again runs with the door open. i'm guessing it is a problem with the control board as discussed above. later today i will remove it and inspect for burnt solder contacts, hopefully i will find something. if anyone has another solution, please post. i will post my findings.
