Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Just had a Bosch dishwasher installed in my new kitchen. The plumber who installed it ran it and it worked. Now we cannot get it to run. We have tried everything. Restarted several times, turned the circuit breaker off and on, changed the cycle and nothing works. The light comes on but it does not get water or run. What are we doing wrong. The dishwasher is brand new out of box but we bought it 4 years ago and remodeling was delayed.

Does anyone have installation instructions fo a Bosch free standing dishwasher smu50E65au? Thanks. Julie


Hi Julie.
A dishwasher needs access to water numerous times during it's cycle. You'll have to have the hose on the tap with water pressure on while the machine is in operation. You could exchange your tap for one with thread or install a second one behind the current one.
(Slightly agricultural repair)
When installing a dishwasher the drain hose outlet MUST be above the water level in the machine or the water will run out as soon as it is put in...They usually connect to the S bend under the sink.
It would probably be best to have a handyman/plumber attend to the job.
Good luck

Hi,


The jumper plug must be there if it was on the old one. Also it is very important what kind of detergent did you use. Such dishwashers do not work with any kind of liquid or jell detergents and you have to use a rinse aid. Water enters the dishwasher via an electronic valve, also there is also a filter where the hose enters the valve, but as you have already disconnected the pipe connected to it you would have seen any obstruction. The valves are pretty cheap and pretty easy to replace, it usually consists of removing the lid and disconnecting a couple of wires with spade clips on them, undoing a couple of screws to remove the valve, then just replacing it and reconnecting the wires.


Do get back to us for any further query and do not forget to accept it.

Hello and welcome to Fixya.

It "smells" ( just kidding ) like you might have a problem with the way your drain hose is connected by your description.

It is crucial that your Bosch dishwasher have a siphon break or "hi-loop" installed in the drainage between the dishwasher and where it enter's your homes plumbing.

If it does not you can try different cleaners until the cows come home with little effect because the odor is coming from the drain line itself.

Was this unit installed by yourself or someone you know ? Or was it installed by a plumber/professional installer.

In the end it actually makes little difference, I'm just curious. I see professional installers as well as plumbers fail to include this crucial feature over and over.

Let me know. I'll watch for your post. If you are unclear as to what I'm referring to, check your installation guide that comes with all Bosch dishwasher's.

If you do not have any instructions regarding the proper drain/install I can email you a copy, but I would need your email address.

Good luck.

I have a Bosch dishwasher that was working just fine until I spilled a bag of uncooked pasta. I sent the pasta down the drain and ran the garbage disposal, subsequently clogging the pipes. I had to get a...


It may simply be where the dishwasher drain attaches to your garbage disposal. There should be a hose clamp and can easily be taken off. If the clog's not right at the connection, chances are it's far. If there is an air gap, it will be within a foot of the connection. Just shake the DW drain into a bucket and you should be good to go. Not sure why the plumber wouldn't do that though....being a plumber, I would never leave a customer with a clog. Anyway, good luck!

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.

Just had bosch dishwasher installed by plumber but it is still not filling up with water. it works after we poor a pot of water in it.


Locate the hot water supply hose under the sink that connects and follow it over to where it will connect to the back of the dishwasher. Look for sharp bends in the hose. There should be a valve where the hose connects to the under-sink plumbing. Rotate that valve counter-clockwise to assure that it is open.

If the problem continues, the solenoid valve may have immediately failed. That valve is just behind where the hose connects to the dishwasher.

Good Luck!

Hi shanandpop

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Your Bosch dishwasher is 6 months old and is starting to leave food on items in the top drawer. It also sometimes leaves a grainy residual in the cups and glasses. You have put through a dishwasher cleaning solution, but find it isn't doing anything to resolve the problem?

You're still under warranty. The best advice is to use it. If it is not fixed the first time out, demand a new one from where you bought it. Sometimes they drag this out till the warranty runs out, then where will we be.
