Question about Bosch Evolution 500 SHE45M05UC Stainless Steel Dishwasher

1 Answer

Disconnected dishwasher and moved out in order to tile the kitchen floor. Ten days later reconnected dishwasher. Turned on water supply to leak check -- no water is getting into the washer. - Ran hot water from sink side to see if that would help, no such luck - Disconnected water line and water is in the line up to the connection point at dishwasher. Looked inside valve of dishwasher for obstruction - no such luck - Disconnected both ends of water line and blew in line to check for obstruction (just to make sure), no such luck - Digital numbers are counting down but no sound of water and the tub is dry. Am I missing something? What else can I check? -

The fill valve may have gotten clogged with dried mineral deposits while the machine was idle.

SOURCE: Electronic controls don't count down properly

Your problem is the electronic control board and unfortant that you cant repair or even get parts for it . Only if you get the whole control board will you fix your problem assy unless you find a good appliance man that repairs electronic control boards

you have to replaced the main control resoldering wont fix it because the relay itself has gone bad replacing the board will solve the problem

SOURCE: ... calling Master_Tech Bosch Dishwasher SHU43C07UC

Hello Mary, I checked on your dishwasher and what you have is a pressure fill dishwasher. This unit has a pressure switch to make sure the water level is correct. When the dishwasher is full of water (the indention that is around 2 inches in from the side walls and front) is where the water level should be out to. If the water isn''t out this far, then the pressure switch is shutting off early and not filling properly. I read your entire essay, it is perfect, so this sounds like an issue of either not enough water, or the circulation pump impeller has separated and not creating enough water pressure at the wash arms. Since you stated that you removed and cleaned the filters, that shouldn't be the issue. That is normally where I find this issue at is clogged filters, espically in hard water. I have seen results in the pass where too much detergent was used causing the pressure switch to shut off early. In those cases filling the detergent dispenser with cooking oil and running the longest cycle removes the excess detergent. It is proteins that the detergent is designed to break down. So quit worring about your water pipes, the issue is with the dishwasher. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: our bosch dishwasher runs but no water is

Hi, welcome to Fixya. By the description you've provided, it sound's like the wash motor is either seized or just stuck, let's hope it's the later. Bosch had issued a service tip about this problem several years ago titled "Loosening Frozen Impellers" strange choice of word's considering nothing is froze..at least you'd hope lol. Essentially what it say's is this...Remove the pump filter ( inside the tub under the bottom rack ) locate the hole to your right down in the sump well, you should be able to see it with a flashlight so it's a well lit area. Once you've located this hole ( it's providing access to the wash impeller without pulling the unit from the cabinet ) reach in with a 8mm nut driver and locate the end of the impeller and turn it clock-wise until it feel's to turn freely. Give it a test perhaps in a rinse cycle before you put all the filter and screen back together. It should be fine unless the motor is seized, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it, try the repair tip for now. Let me know how that help's and/or if you need further assistance. Thank's for visiting "fixya" for you repair tip's. If this is indeed helpful please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know. Thanks again and good luck. Macmarkus :)

Won't Fill


Hello Ben - I understand your dishwasher has power but will not fill with water. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:
• Make sure water supply is turned on. (First check for shut off valve under the kitchen sink)
• Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.
• Verify the inlet hose and make sure it's not twisted.
• Does float overfill protector (mushroom shaped object in tub) move freely? This is located in the bottom left front corner of the dishwasher.
• Make sure the electrical wires going to the water inlet valve have not come off. It is best to turn off power to the dishwasher before reconnect wires, it doesn't matter which terminal is off both need to be connected.
• Confirm that the drain hose is installed correctly. If the drain hose is routed under the floor as the dishwasher fills water can be drawn from the tub and appear to have never filled.
• Some dishwashers use a water pressure switch that will shut off the water valve if the tub over fills.
If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the manufacturer website.

Won't Fill and will attempt to run wash cycle when turned off and door is closed


Hello ddux97 - I understand your dishwasher has power but will not fill with water. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

• Make sure water supply is turned on. (First check for shut off valve under the kitchen sink).

• Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.

• Check inlet hose and make sure it's not twisted.

• Does float overfill protector (mushroom shaped object in tub) move freely? This is located in the bottom left front corner of the dishwasher.

• If this is a new install, then make sure the unit is not pressed up against the cabinet and the fill tube is not squeezed closed.

• Make sure the electrical wires going to the water inlet valve have not come off. It is best to turn off power to the dishwasher before reconnect wires, it doesn't matter which terminal is off both need to be connected.

• Make sure the drain hose is installed correctly. If the drain hose is routed under the floor as the dishwasher fills water can be drawn from the tub and appear to have never filled.

• Some models of Frigidaire dishwashers use a water pressure switch that will shut off the water valve if the tub over fills. These models do not have floats.

I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

We heard a loud gushing sound and the dishwasher leaked all over the kitchen floor. Why?


The drain hose may have disconnected from the dishwasher or at the waste trap or the drain hose maybe broken.
If the drain hose is OK then the water supply hose may have disconnected from the tap or the water hose is broken and fresh water is leaking from this hose.

Where does the rubber membrane go when tiling a bathroom floor


tiles on wooden floors will always move and crack the grout/tiling cement
therefore the rubber membrane goes down first with out nails and then everything is laid on top
that way when the wooden floor moves , there is a water proof membrane to prevent the water from rotting the wood over time

I have a Kenmore dishwasher, not sure of the model or year (less than 10 years old) but water constantly flows into the dishwasher. So much so that it leaked all over the floor because the bottom filled up...


Hello.
If it's filling all the time when dishwasher is not even running? The water inlet valve that the house water supply connects to at the dishwasher,is sticking open and needs to be replaced..what you can do now to stop it from constantlu filling is turn off water supply to the d/w from under the kitchen sink.

Typically the model number is on a label on the egde of the door inside or on the rim of the tub..it would be needed to order a water valve

While on vacation our house had been checked at one week later &again 2 weeks later, @ 3 weeks check, floor in front of dish washer & entire kitchen had standing water , as DW door was opened...


Take a long shot. Say your mains leak a little, quite possible, and you machine's inlet solenoid valve leaks a bit, say about a litre a day - you probably would not notice it during the normal course of events, in a week it would leak about 7 litres into the machine, in the second week it would have about 14 litres in it, about at the level of the door and not seen by the house visitor. The next week it would leak another 7 litres - all over the floor. Now it would be noticed?

Leaking


this is a huge problem for you. when you have a leak coming from the bottom of the dishwasher the machine will have to come out. but first check the door gasket to make sure the leak is not coming from there.

Fisher & Paykel DD603ZW DishDrawer - Leaking.


I removed all internal pieces from the drawers to make them as light as possible. Then removed the securing screws, 2 each side at lower drawers. (These secure the unit in position in its cove. Slide out bottom drawer and loosen height adjust screws each corner to lower unit and then slide out. I taped the drawers closed so they wouldn't open as I moved it. I lifted the front and put a heavy rag under the front legs which helped me draw it out. It helps if you have a second pair of hands. As you edge it out, ensure power and water supply hoses are clear of any obstructions. it's not that heavy just unwieldy. Chers, Craig from OZ.
