Question about Bosch 24 in. SHE44C02UC / SHE44C06UC / SHE44C07UC Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

I have a Bosch SMU2046Uc/14 about 15 years old. Sometimes it works, sometimes not, for the last couple of months. Now it has stopped working completely as if no power. Checked the breaker. Another problem - one of our kids just today jammed the door lock on it and we cannot get the door to latch at all. Can you help with any one of these problems? How do you fix or reset the door latch??? What else can we check to troubleshoot the dishwasher? Thanks!

HI,

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:

Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses
Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack


  • Spray arm


  • Spray arm support


  • Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

SOURCE: Bosch smu2046uc doesn't drain completely (water

check the following parts for their operational value. replace any failed part.


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Make sure you visit the Bosch dishwasher recall website as this model is under the recall with a faulty controller which may cause a fire! Check your model under http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/
then call 800.856.9226 to setup a recall repair appointment. We just found out about this recall and was never notified by Bosch even though we registered our unit after we purchased it...talk about poor customer service! Hope this helps!

Lawnmower electric


In most cases its not worth to invest TIME if you have a rotak 40 or so , because of the low quality of Bosch mowers its because of they have take over qualcast brand from England they are now owner , the last years there are mowers that have a belt drive from electric mower ROTAK i have replaced a belt but its takes so many thinking and working time to split and rebuild after that the bearings are also not fresh enough to let it be whats over when its over with the bosch mower get an other brand I've never been in working misjudged restoring so, one machine mainly perform the standard excess tension on the belt which the bearing to excessive heat, the stuff is made to break down. i have this year 20 years behind me in repairing also Bosch powertools and thats not only the problem that its BOsch , no its the Qualcast quality that fits the last years inside the bosch brand. the last 7 years the Bosch powertools are differend by model and price and from bad to perfect. but the most common problem is the working time that you will have on a green rotak mower. if you own a old model Bosch fore 8 years ago then the parts are sometimes difficult to get. difficult to place an correct answer but be warned if its handling a rotak .

My saw just stopped working. No hot and had only just started useing it. It would be less than six months old and has had very little use.


Haha turned a short cord from cable to switch one of the contact wires can come loose, look at your grip
Bosch has ever more frequently had this strange unexpected problem but if it is something it is a very easy problem, but usually very easy to fix itself.

sometimes it a used cable haspel connector.

Where are the brushes on wixe127 indesit washing machine


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I am presuming someone has told you that the brushes need changing?
Those will be the motor brushes then ;-0)

My comment:
It can sometimes be false economy to just have the brushes changed although financially very attractive. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished at the same time. It depends on how old the motor is and how much wear the commutator has had.
The problem is that motors are expensive because they are such well made and hard worked pieces- our 19+ year-old Bosch motor (and belt at the same time of course) cost GBP 250 but will probably outlast us!
Good luck,

John C

Bosch dishwasher Water pump not stopping


Hi.

You need to replace the pressure switch located near to the pump, in the drain assembly.
The main function of the pressure switch is to turn off pump when there is no more water.
The pressure switch can be tested reading ohms on switch contacts and jumping the switch. This must be done by a technician.

You can get parts and a quote on repair calling Bosch at the number listed on the manual.

Regards.

Bosch dishwasher growling and not draining


Bosh dishwashers work off a gravity pump system. They sometimes require a stronger pump. Make sure if it has a air gap either at the top of the sink or johnston T or in the wall that, that is not plugged. They are very sensitive to how the drainelines are set as well. If it was installed prfessionally, call the installer back out as they should warranty there install for 1 year. Also all products have a 1 year MF warranty as well. You should be able to get a BOSH tech out at NO charge to see if it is a deffective pump.
