Question about Bosch Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a Bosch Dishwasher SHU3302UC/14 that will not drain. We initially thought the problem was the disposal because water kept backing up into the sink. We replaced the disposal, removed the dishwasher plug in the disposal, but the dishwasher still does not drain. I would like to check the drain line, but am unable to access it. I removed the kick plate and the screws that secure the dishwasher to the underside of the counter, but the dishwasher will not move. Can you access the drain line from removed the drain in the bottom of the dishwasher?

If the sink backs up then it is likely there is a blockage in the drain, not the dishwasher outlet.

SOURCE: Danby counter top dishwasher leaks

This might help with disassembly. Mine was leaking also, but my main problem was no spray. Use my disassembly instructions to remove the pump/motor. If you notice that the leakage is from the pump and not a loose connection, remove the pump cover and apply a thin bead of Blue RTV sealant to the rubber ring. This stopped the leak in my pump.
________________________________
My Danby dishwasher (DW) stopped working. The spray arm stopped spinning completely and very little water was coming out of the arm. When I removed the spray arm (CAUTION: reverse threaded, turn CW to loosen and CCW to tighten) and ran the DW, very little water was spraying out of the pump.

I thought maybe the pump was clogged. So, I followed the recommendations I had seen online about running a few cycles with Vinegar to clear the crud from the pump, but this did not help.

It seemed like the motor was operating, and there were no strange smells to indicate the motor was burned…just no water spraying. So I thought it must be the pump. Before disassembly, I tried to locate a replacement pump. I searched far and wide, both locally and online, and could not locate a replacement pump. So with nothing to lose, I decided to disassemble the DW, take a look and see what I could find. I am glad that I did.

The bottom line is that I disassembled the dishwasher and found that the plastic pump impeller had worked its way off the pump shaft and was not turning. I forced some Teflon plumbers tape over the shaft and forced the impeller back onto the shaft. The impeller has a flat spot to line up with the shaft and I pushed the impeller down on the shaft as far as it would go. I then used a small socket to fit over the shaft and GENTLY tapped the impeller for a final seating. I reassembled the dishwasher and it worked like a charm.

Since I could not find any service manual or instructions online for this DW, I thought I would share my disassembly/reassembly procedure.


Since my instructions are too long to post here, a complete repair document including a link to pictures can be found at:

SOURCE: Dishwasher drains into sink

As background, the dirty water typically goes from the dishwasher to a small tube within a tube, and that goes to the disposal. This ensures that your dishwasher does not back up in the event of a clog.

The problem is likely that the tube that links the thing you see next to your faucet to the disposal is either totally or, more likely, partially blocked.

I recommend taking the entire flex pipe off and inspecting. In my case it was about 80% blocked, so a simple test whereby water was pored down failed to show the issue.

Once I took it apart and gave the tube a plumbing version of an angioplasty all was well.

The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.

You need to clean that contaminated out of the dishwasher and clean the water level float and the screen at the bottom of the washer tub.

Water overflow then no water


It may be a sticking float switch. The float switch controls the level of water in the dishwasher and if it is sticking on or off it could cause them problems you have
part numbers 263834 and 263185.
Hope this helps

Water doesn not drain out


The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine.
Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again. Also check that the drain pipe is not kinked or caught somewhere.

Water in the bottom and not working


Check for a clogged drain (e.g.: via drain hose), or a water pump malfunction due to foreign obstruction (e.g.: glass, etc).

Note: If you changed a food waste disposer (kitchen sink area) and did not remove "plug" from disposer for dishwasher drain hose (assuming dishwasher drain hose connected to food waste disposer), then water cannot drain from dishwasher.

Bosch dishwasher cleans but will not drain.


Remove the drain hose where it attaches to the disposal. This area often clogs and will prevent any d/w from draining.
