Bosch Dishwasher on/off

I push the on switch and the unit turns on, but when I remove my finger the unit turns off. It appears the switch is not staying on ? Is it the switch?

It could be the switch. If the black plastic On/Off button comes all the back up into cutout in the top of the door, you must remove the front of the door (10 little screws; two shims will probably fall out; good luck figuring out how they go back) and then the plastic top (4 little screws) that contains the On/Off and the wash mode buttons. Now you've exposed the real on/off switch, which has a reddish/brown stem (at least on my unit). Test the switch; if the DW doesn't stay on when you depress it, you need a new switch. If it stays on, then goes off when you depress it again, the switch is likely good and maybe you have a problem with the black plastic cover button.

No power to bosch dishwasher


So the wall plug is good and has power. But the dishwasher has no power. Sounds like you need to replace the door lock switch this kills all power to the unit because it makes sure the door is all the way shut and locked before it will operate if something is out of whack in this set up the dishwasher just does not function period. This is where i would go first. Please rate my solution it is how i earn my achievements. Thanks in advance.

After turning the unit on (Bosch dishwasher SHE4AM0), it makes noises like it is starting, but after 1-2 minutes, the light switches from active to clean with no water ever being dispensed and no wash...


OMG The raindance works. I am not sure what worked, but here is what I did: 1) boiled water and put it in the dishwasher. 2) Started pushing buttons to try to do the "Setting Options" on page 13 of the useless Bosch manual. After a bunch of button pushing -- none of the things actually happened that the manual said would happen, but the thing started and is going through a cycle -- not immediately stopping. Wish us all luck in dealing with this poorly engineered product.

water is in the base and the float switch is activated. you must remove the water to deactivate.then hit the drain and cancell. let me tell you a quick joke .Im a old bosch tech and i had a call with the same problem. as soon as i got there i notice mouse droppings.the customer had a tech come by and told her she needed a circulation pump amodule the whole thing.wrong!!! what had happen was a mouse had made a mouse bed with the white packing foam and pulled it under the float in the unit. so the unit thought it had water in base and it went into drain mode . I removed foam and problem solved.

Bosch dishwasher: won't fill with water


The flood switch is tripped. This is located under the unit. Unplug or flip the breaker to the dishwasher, take off the black kick plate under the door, 2 screws, and you will see the white plastic "pan". The flood switch is located where you can't really see it but it is on the left hand side wall and is made of styrofoam. The best thing to do is to put some rags in the pan, this is not easy because there is little room to put them, and soak-up the water that has filled the pan. Eventually you will get enough water out that the float will deactivate the switch. What you hear "running" when you turn it on is actually the drain pump, it get activated when the flood switch is tripped.

Dishwasher will not fill with water


without a brand or model number its hard to be sure, but some types have a float cut out switch inside the washer. Its on the bottom inside and kind of resembles a plastic mushroom. The top should lift up and down easily. detergent will clog it up and keep it from moving. Just clean all the soap caked on it and move it up and down to see it it pushes a little switch underneath.
