    We have the PDW7880J03ss. I'm not sure if we had a power surge or not. I turn off the power to dishwasher with a switch and it was off. When I went to turn it on to run a load, the continuous beep began and continued as long as power was on. I opened the front and found the cord to unplug to make it stop, but couldn't figure out the cause of the problem. If I knew what it was, I could replace the part. Any ideas? I hate this dishwasher, by the way. We've had it 3 years and it's already been serviced. Apparently a spill got inside and needed to be cleaned a bit. What kind of dishwasher has a non-sealed part to it's insides, especially when installed next to the sink where it's possible that water flows over the counter into the dishwasher?

I'm the one who posted on May 23. I tried turning off the breakers and it was still beeped when powered back on. I ordered a new touchpad and control module. When I replaced the touchpad, the beeping was gone, but not all the buttons worked, so I changed out the control module, too, and it works:) I'm going to put clear caulk along the top to prevent spills from leaking through the front panel.

Just purchased a used LXIh4 temp on diplay only goes to 155F

The incoming water determines how fast the DW is ready for another cycle. For running continuous cycles, the incoming water will need to be 140 degrees. If you pause 2 minutes between cycles, the temp should remain consistent with a 120 degree supply.

My dishwasher also gets stuck at 1 minute and it keeps on going and going . I had to turn it off. I called up bosch and they told me to hold the power and the rinse and hold button for 5 seconds but it did...

well basicly the technicien came and knew nothing - he tried a few things so he is alreadyto change the electric board and we all know how expensive that is - any way he left saying he will come back today with a new board  - after he left i went and turned off the breaker to the dishwasher for  5 minutes which is what bosch told me to do - then i pressed power and rinse and hold for 5 seconds and then it drained all the water i turned the power off - then on again pressed my cycle ( which I always put delicate/econo and it started - but it showed 2 hours so i figured it must be the board - but as it was going through the cycle it seems the time was adjusting itself and it went through the usual amount of time - all the way to the end - it did not get stuck at 1 minute this time - so I hope it has fixed itself - I will see with the next load if all ok - thanks take care - the bottom line is My husband had started the dishwasher the other day and he must of pressed all kinds of buttons and messed up my machine -

Error codes

Usally this is a bad control board or in some cases, a bad display board. they are fairly easy to replace and should be covered under a 5 year parts warranty (no labor). if its older than 5 years i would advise getting rid of it before putting any real money into it as Eurotechs are affectionatly know as Eurotrash in the industry and it WILL give you more problems. If you need a short dishwasher to fit under some shorter than standard counters, go with an ASKO. They are made by the same parent company, but are 50 times better. Good luck!
