Question about Bosch 24 in. SHX46B05 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
I got a bosch sgs45e02gb/45 dishwasher. All was OK until yesterday, when everything remained dirty. Have done a bit of digging and wondered if anyone can help me out, cheers.
The water doesn't come through with enough pressure to turn the rotary arms. I stuck a screwdriver in the door sensor and managed to start it on a cycle with the door open to see what was going on. When the water is coming through the top arm it doesn't move, after about a minute it then changes to the bottom arm, after about a 20-30 seconds there is enough pressure to turn the arm but it takes about 20 seconds for a full turn. If I turn it off and back on again the cycle starts from the opposite arm to which it was when I turned it off but this time it turns with full pressure for a full half turn before previous symptoms return. It drains as it should.

Certainly sounds like the float is stuck in the over filled position or possible a bad float switch. Could also be a bad water fill valve - if you can blow air through it when removed then you need to replace it. You can follow this link to troubleshoot your washer, but note that its not exactly for your model - http://www.thermador.com/replacementparts/main/pdfs/SHU-complete-troubleshooting-guide.pdf Good luck!

have you seen whether water is pouring out of the bottom supply tube with the lower arm removed? not 100% sure on this model but some units have a half load switch but that should turn off the top one. there may be a blockage in the lower water supply tubeways.

Make sure that drain hose is not kinked, and that the unit is draining properly. Odours are most commonly caused by the unit not draining properly and subsequently using the dirty water in the rinse cycles as well....not perfect washing results will be the tell-tale sign here....

In some models one can select either the top rotor or bottom. being a new unit possibly you have not seen options given. very seldom a timer related problem.

Sounds like the control module is out -- cost about $100 (I am on my third). I got a "lifetime" warranty when buying my second one. If you are handy, you can replace it yourself. You can call Bosch to confirm this (I did). It mounts inside the door. Mine is a BOSCH 5316.
The draining problem may mean a clogged drain hose -- you have to check it all the way back to either the main drain or the garbage disposal (if you have one). This may be what forced off the impeller wheel.

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.
If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...
