Bosch Exxcel dishwasher "check light" indicator

Hi - a couple of days ago my Bosch Exxcel dishwasher (now out of warrantee) has stopped, mid-run, at 134 minutes with the checkwater light on. It makes intermittent noises as if it's trying to run. There is an increasingly stagnant body of water floating around in the bottom so it is not draining properly. Help! The kitchen is beginning to smell! :(

Bosch exxcel auto option - Have not run it for a couple of months. Turnit on al all it does is pump out


Hi,

The usual reason for this is that water hes leaked into the bottom of your dishwasher under the washing compartment. This has caused the float to rise and trip the switch which activates the Aqua-Stop / anti-flood protection system. This also closes the solenoid (water control valve) to stop water entering this dishwasher. You may already have had a small leak before you stopped using it.

The only way to check this is to remove the washer from under the counter (disconnect power and water supply first) and tilt it backwards about 15-20 degrees. Water should run on to the floor from under the washer so I suggest putting some old towels down first. Once the water has been drained from under the washer, you can use it again, but it's not advisable if you have a leak and this really needs to be investigated.


If there is no water from under the washer, you may have a faulty float switch or possibly a faulty control module.

Hope this helps.


Regards,
BElectric

Hi. We have a Bosch Exxcel dishwasher. A few weeks ago it stopped cleaning properly because it wouldn't heat the water properly. We have had a look and on the left side there is some evidence of clogging...


Those probably go to the heater portions. Can you blow them out by disconnecting one side? Some times that old can of computer spray can work good.

I have a Bosch Exxcel washing machine which is great but it bleeps for ever and a day when the wash is finished. How do I silence the beeps without having to get up?


Switch machine on but do not program.
Press and hold PREWASH button.
After a few seconds it begins beeping.
Keep holding PREWASH button in until beep gets quiet
then eventually stops.
Hope this helps - Colin, Billericay Essex

I have the same problem with mold in the dishwasher and Bosch is much less than helpful to solve the problem. I will never buy Bosch again.


try running the unit with 1/2 cup of bleach without any dishes in the washer this shold kill the mold and once the cycle has completed there wont be any bleach in the dishwasher but run it a couple of times empty to ensure the bleach has done its job

Why is fridge/freezer not performinf properly. Its in the garage but does not sem to be running properly


You might check the level on it; some types of compressors refuse to function if tilted a few degrees.
I assume you have checked the outlet you are using and have power available? If the outlet is dead, there may be a GFI (ground fault interrupter) that has tripped.
If was recently transported and not upright, this can require a couple of days to settle itself again.
