    We had this problem once before, the repairman did something with the buttons on the front of the dishwasher to reset it. I called the repairman and he said he doesn't work on Bosch dishwashers anymore. He had only written in his computer that he reset the buttons. I have read the manual and cannot figure out which buttons to hold, the manual is not very specific. I was hoping this was something we could fix without the help of a repairman. Do you have any idea about this way of resetting? Thank you!

    I have not heard back from you. I just wanted to say that with the drain problem yesterday, water backed up into the dishwasher, I was doing rinse and hold to empty the dishwasher, I opened the dishwasher several times to see if it was empty, which restarted the rinse and hold cycle. Could I have screwed up the water release button? And is there anyway to solve this problem with the use of the buttons on the frotn of the dishwasher. thank you for your help. janice. feltes

Hi,
I think you will find that either the water was turned off during your problems and not there is dirt in the screen or that the fill valve just "happened" to go bad at this time and that your problems are unrelated...

Here is a tip that will help you to find out why water will not come into the dishwasher...

    If that is possible I do not know the button combination either....and I will not pretend to know something that I do not know....

    The one thing that I would do though would be to turn off all of the power to the dishwasher overnight and then reapply the power in the morning...this may reset it...

How do I check the drain hose?


If it is a double drawer dishwasher then there are two hoses one from top drawer and the other from lower drawer. They combine under the kitchen sink using a U adapter. Need to find which one is choked (assuming kitchen drain is ok and you have no inskinerator being used). Disconnect the U adapter from kitchen drain and empty tie to an empty bucket. Run each drawer and see which one is causing the block. (just a rinse cycle should be ok).

Water wont drain every time


Hello

When a dishwasher won't drain, that usually means that the appliance's drain line is clogged. The drain line, which connects the dishwasher to the garbage disposal, must be cleared of debris before the dishwasher will resume its normal operation. If the drain line is the problem, clearing it is simple and requires only a few standard household products.

Turn off the power to the dishwasher, if possible. Remove all the dishes and the racks. Put on a pair of rubber gloves and use towels to soak up most of the standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher.

Unscrew the rotating sprayer arm in the bottom of the dishwasher. Rinse off the arm and all its seals and screws in the sink and set it aside.

Locate the filter screen in the back of the dishwasher's floor. Pop off the screen, using a screwdriver to loosen any bolts that may be holding it in place. Rinse off the screen, then wipe the dishwasher floor with paper towels to remove any large pieces of food or other debris. Wipe the area clean with a damp sponge.

Replace the screen and the sprayer arm. Locate the drain line; it should be near the back of the floor of the dishwasher, right underneath the filter screen. Pour 1/2 cup baking soda into a cup and add enough water to make it into a pourable paste. Pour the paste into the drain line through the screen. Add 1/2 cup vinegar to the drain line and let the solution fizz for 15 minutes.

Boil a quart of water. Remove the pot from the heat, allow the bubbling to subside and pour the water into the drain line to clear the baking soda solution. Watch the water go down the tube; if it seems to be draining slowly or not at all, repeat the baking soda treatment.

Replace the racks and make sure that everything is put back together properly. Turn the power back on and run the empty dishwasher through one normal cycle to see if the drainage problem is fixed. If not, repeat the process a few more times. If the issue still isn't resolved, the problem may be with the pump or another electronic part. A professional is best suited to deal with an issue like that.

Jenn-air quiet series Model JDB8910AWW Dishes seemed to wash OK, but did not rinse. There is water (soapy) in the bottom. What do I do?


It is likely the drain function did not work.

Empty the dishwasher and clean the filters at the bottom. You will need a small container to empty the water and also use a towel to soak the remaining water.

If cleaning the filters does not help then there may be a blockage in the drain hose (check the kitchen sink side also). You may want to also confirm if the drain pump is operating at the right time in the cycle.

you could refer to this diagram for the parts involved.

Good luck.

Flooding in both drawers of dishwasher


I suppose "flooding in both drawers of ..." implies water is not draining out. Is that right?

It is a very little information to give you any clear solutions.

Did the water get into the drawers without starting any wash program? Most likely it is the backflow from kitchen sink back through the dishwasher drain hose. Does your kitchen sink plumbing have an air gap sowehere. If so, is it clear?

If the water is the back flow then it is likely to be smelly and you do not want to run it through the dishwasher. I would suggest take the drain hose out from under the sink downpipe and drop into an empty bucket. Then take all the fixtures out from the drawers and empty out water using a small container.

Put the washer arms back and run each drawer on a short rinse cycle collecting the drain water in the bucket. If cycle runs clear, then get plumber to check the kitchen downpipe.

Reconnect drain hose.

Hope this helps.

How to remove debris from the drain holes at the bottom of the dishwasher tub, which is preventing the tub from draining all of the water completely?


I had a similar problem when my dishwasher wouldn't drain and was causing the kitchen sink to back up. I poured a little drain cleaner in the bottom of the tub (where the drain holes are) and let it stand for about 15 minutes then ran a hot rinse cycle (don't put any dishes in the dishwasher while you're doing any of this). The water still hadn't all drained but after a day or two of not using the dishwasher it drained on it's own and hasn't had any problems since. I would recommend reading your manual to make sure that using drain cleaner doesn't void any warranty you may have. Also, it's a good idea to do an empty rinse cycle at least once so that there's no chemicals getting on your dishes.

Drain pump running when unit starts but no water to appliance


The machine probably has water in the base (not visibly in the machine, but in the base where the conponents are). Pull the machine out, sit the front on a large towel and holding the back of the d/w pull it towards you. Any water trapped in the base will drain out. It may be a fair amount as the flood safety switch will activate on approx 1.5 ltrs. Once you've cleared the water run a prewash or quickwash to check d/w. Hope this helps.

Food particles are on dishes after washing


Try adding bicarb of soda/baking soda and vinegar in the detergent dispenser. Bicarb fizzes off hardened particles and vinegar strips off grease and aids rinsing.
