This unit is a sanitizer, not a full fledged dishwasher. It is designed for restaurants and bars where the primary use is washing glassware. The behavior you describe is normal for this model. The manual can be found at the following link:

Have a Bosch SHU43C05UC/14 dishwasher. Water comes in, gets heated, but the unit never seems to go into wash cycle, fills, then drains a little.


This may sound odd but might work.

Reset the machine as to start a new cycle. Add 2-4 cups of water. If the machine starts and runs through a cycle then the water inlet valve needs to be replaced.

Good luck

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If still the issue is not resolved then to resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

If you have checked the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Check the water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible.

This would have happened as the dishwasher was overloaded with more than prescribed number of dishes. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. As the dishwasher is not draining properly, this issue is related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

What is your water temp. This model has 4 automatic water heat cycles built in to it and it heats the water to 145 degrees and won't let advance till that temp. If the water coming in is lower than 120 degrees it will add about 2 hours to your normal wash cycle.

What is the amount of time for a regular wash? Time on the plus wash?


a regular wash should take about an hour and a half. plus wash would be longer only because it heats the wash temp hotter.
wash temp is generally around 140 degrees
and your rinse is around 161 degrees.

your flow through heat assembly heats the water at 2 degrees a minute. so it can take anywhere from and hour and a half to two hours for a full cycle.
try turning your sink on hot water until you feel hot water coming out then start the dishwasher so it doesnt have to heat cold water up to those temps. it should run a little shorter.

Won't complete the cycle


Try using a quick cycle and see what happens. Don't use sanitize or any extra heat cycle. Sometimes during sanitize high temp rinse or other cycles the timer motor is stopped until the water heats up. The sensor could be defective. Not all machines do this and I'm not real familiar with your particular one.
