Question about Dishwashers

2 Answers

Bosch SHX 46L Our dishwasher would complete a cycle everything good. Sometime after, it would spray and wet the dishes leaving water in the bottem of the washer. Now, the pump runs constantly when the washer is powered on and it will not start a wash cycle. Any ideas?

    Presentlly, our dish washer will not start a cycle. When the power button is pushed to on the drain pump runs continuosly. The washer will not do anything else. I poured a picture of water into it and it did pump it out. It did not stop and it will not start a cleaning cycle.

It sounds to me as if your controller has been spiked? This would then explain this very odd behavior.
Above please find your servicing data.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer and then the heating element. Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it. Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next depends, as follows: On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time. On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    If it wont start a cycle the first thing that should be checked is the drain pump and motor, if they are fine then it is the control that has gone bad and should be replaced.

Leaves residue on dishes


Hi

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...

Dear Sirs, I have a client with a Bosch dishwasher that is leaving a film on all of the dishes. the water valve is working and the drain pump is working. Apparently this has just started. Any ideas?...


Hello

Welcome to FixYa.

Can you provide a model number of your Bosch dishwasher ?

Depending on the model ( i.e. SHU, SHV, SHE, SHX followed by several caricatures etc. ) it can be several possibilities so I`ll hold off generalizing and instead try and speak specific about your model.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Not cleaning dishes


Our Bosch does a pretty good job of washing dishes. But we rinse most of the time. Not a hard rinse, but a rinse.

Are both spray bars rotating? You can test by seeing that the bars rotate easily by hand, and also by starting a cycle and opening the door real quick when you hear the spray hit the door.

Make sure the spray bar nozzles are all clear.

Has it ever done a good job of cleaning dishes?

DI you leave a heavy build-up of food on the dishes, and allow it to dry before washing?

My bosch dishwasher will not dry the dishes


this dw to save energy works this way- the final rinse will reach a temp of 161 F . the dishes have to absorb this heat. when the cycle is complete the dishes become a heater in themselves radiating the heat they absorbed during the final 161 F heat. If you have any tupperware or plastic dishes in the unit they will not absorb heat therefore not radiate the 161 f temp need to dry all the dishes. try to avoid plastic items and they must always have jet dry. this is the european way of conserving energy. on the old ge or whirlpool they had electric element in the bottom that would bake the dishes dry ....not these..but they do save alot of energy.. it helps right after a cycle to crack the door open release all the steam from the unit

Just bought a Bosch dishwasher and we were told that they have no heating mechanism to dry the dishes, which is why they are more energy efficient.  You are supposed to leave the door closed for at least one hour after the cycle is complete.  The heat that has built up inside during the wash cycle will dry the dishes.  It is also recommended to always use JetDry. If you follow this advice, the dishes will come out fine.
