Hi,

There is a simple test you can do. Turn the power on and open the dishwasher door. In the bottom of the washing compartment near the centre you will see a dome/mushroom shaped plastic object (the float). Lift the float as high as it will go (about 1-2 inches) and, keeping it lifted, see if the pump starts.

If nothing happens, then it's likely that you need a new waste pump. If you can hear a faint humming, but the water doesn't pump out, then your pump impeller may be jammed or the impeller may have come off the drive shaft.

Try this test, post back with the results and I'll try to assist further . . .

SOURCE: Dishwasher draining - Bosch SGV4313GB/17

This is generally because of a stuck diverter solenoid. The water goes to the pump and then is either sent to the wash arms or the drain. Also, check the drain.

SOURCE: Bosch SHV 4303 Dishwasher not draining

I have a Bosch Classixx with what sounds the same problem.It would not drain properly and hummed even when the front door was opened.After a couple of days it ponged a bit.This is what I did.Sypnoned off yukky water with a short length of hose (fill pipe with water from tap don't **** on it!!).Cleaned filter under cutlery tray at bottom.Then put a TEASPOON of bleach if on main drainage or dishwasher cleaner if septic tank.Ran on a hot wash and see if it sorted problem-it didn't but did clean system.
Syphoned off again -take care.Isolated electric and water supply.-Should do that first perhaps Pulled out from under counter undid drain hose at sink end and water at machine end.I then put machine on side and undid bottom silver plate.Note position of polystyrene float switch cover.I then followed drain hose to drain pump and undid it by twisting it like a bayonet light bulb undoing clip levering with screwdriver (not for feint hearted as easy to break) -I then checked little impeller for foreign object-found none so pulled off pump housing by rubber hose to bigger pump thing next to it and found small bit of plastic put it back together and hey presto problem sorted-I was told it might take two hours for the expert to do it once on his workhop bench-it took me about 30 mins plus a bit of head scratching and a yank and push or two which could have been rather expensive -I was lucky!

There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. A sticking impeller indicates that the pump may be failing, but you are welcome to try my guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

Water still remains in the dishwasher even after cleaning up the drain?


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My bosch dishwasher will not drain and makes a humming noise


Humming noise is an indication of your drain motor getting power but not spinning. Either your drain pump is defective and needs to be replaced, or something is stuck in the pump preventing it from draining out the water. Either way you will have to take the dishwasher out and get at the pump from the bottom of the machine.

I have a Bosch free standing dishwasher (can't find the model #) that doesn't drain the used water when finished. Are there any diagrams that I can access to check how to remove and check the drain?


just remove the screen from inside you will see a torx screw to the left side of the sump remove it. pull the protective cover of the drain pump impeller. once removed you can see if anything is in the drain. if the impeller seems fine you eithe have a bad drain pump or something is in your drain between the dishwasher and the sink clogged.

Wont drain!!!


Check first the drain lines and the drain pump.

If the drain pump is working, and there is no problem in there, then the problem is usually because the water level switch activated by the floating sensor is stuck.

You probably need to have the water level switch replaced.

You can find parts on websites below:
