Question about Bosch 24 in. SMU40 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

The water is not draining from machine, although the pump is obviously trying. It doesn't sound quite right. Kind of a growling noise. It can pump water into tubs when experimenting with ideas, but can't pump hard enough to pump the water into the sink. This is all done with the hose removed so we could check for debris in the line. I've checked the filters and they are clean and clear. This is a used machine a friend gave me, and it's been working beautifully until now.

Bosch classixx dishwasher sgs43c12 not draining.


The only way to eliminate a pump issue is to actually remove the pump and check it internally, it doesn't take much to block them and also the impellers can come loose, It sound like you are handy with tools so i suggest removing the drain pump and while it's off check the hoses that run to and from the pump for obstructions and make sure the impeller is not loose.

Frigidaire front load washer that will not start . it just buzzes. when it does start it stops after washing and leaves water in clothes asn buzzes.


it could either be a bad door switch or something stuck in the pump or a bad pump.if you set it to drain/spin will it drain out the water or does it buzz there?if it does drain i'd have to say you have a bad door switch.the model number you sent doesn't come up,you can unplug the machine,remove the hose that goes to the pump or run it before you unplug it and see if it's the pump making the sound or if the center of the pump can be removed to clean out the pump and check the pump for coins and junk,use a shop vac and vac out all the water in the tub and then lossen the hose or center of pump until water starts to leak out and vac it up as it comes out,check the pump and put it back together,add some water with a bucket or something and see if it drains out,if it doesn't drain and it sounds like the pump is making the noise you have a bad pump,if it buzzes and it's not the pump change out the door switch.the buzzing is electrical,things that could make this sound are the motor,the solenoids on the water valve or the door switch,if you can do some checks like see if it drains or try to find where the noise is coming from would be helpful.good luck and i hope this helps you out.

Hi,I got an Ariston Margherita 2000.It does work well,but the end of the cicle the water doesn`t dissapear from drum.I tried everything,but nothing happend. Many thanks. Zsolt


Hi Zsolt!

The problem can have more causes:
1. At the lower part of the machine is a kind of filter for the dirty water. It is possible it need to be cleaned, a lot of stuff can be stucked there. To get to the filter you have to remove the pannel from the front lower part.
2. The used water pump itself can be the problem, then it need to be replaced.
3. The command unit doesn't work properly so the pump for draining the used water does'n start.

It is quite simple to determine if this pump is starting or not, because it makes during running a tipical sound.

Hope it helped.

Regards,
Bogdan

Although this answer is obviously not current any more I thought it may help others. We recently had the same problem with our machine. The clamp holding the hose to the detergent drawer became loose and the hose came off, allowing water to pour right down to the drain pump area. By undoing the 3 screws behind the detergent drawer + the 3 bolts around the door, I was able to open the front of the machine and tighten the hose clamp.

Diswasher Leaked, now Won't Work


if you see a float inside of the dishwasher make sure its cleaned well.that float tells the control board when to drain and to fill with water.the symptom you descibe tells me its trying to drain,make sure the float moves freely.if you dont have a float you will see a metal probe clean that up as well.try this and if it doesnt fix the sensor may be part of the drain body and it has failed(leaking).
