Bosch dishwasher adjustment

I have a bosch 5316 dishwasher that spits water out of the pan at the front. It is level; I've even tried tipping it a bit to the back but it still, most times, spits a few tbsp of water out when the pump starts up. There is an adjustment of some type at the front, behind the bottom cover; a blach rod under up and down arrows. Is this a level adjustment?

I think I've got it. Even if it is tipped back as far as it can, it still spits out some water when the pump starts up. With the door skin off, I could watch to see where the leak was coming from. It turned out that the insulation on the door skin was lifting the bottom seal off of the pan at the front when the door was opened and closed a few times. I cleaned the rubber and steel well and used a silicone sealant to hold the seal in place. I also covered the lower front of the inner door and the front of the pan with a piece of plastic to keep the skin insulation out of contact with the seal. So far so good!!

Dishwasher won't drain. It continues to try to drain after the cycle is over (can hear the pump running). Maybe water in the safety pan?


There are a few possibities...
if you remove the lid and take the two t20 screw off the left side panel at the front you could check the pressure chamber and its hose are not blocked. Use the link and go to page 4, part 263834 and 361113. You can also remove 165263 (remove t20 screw via the sump after all filters are removeds) this will expose the pump impellor and you can check for any obstruction. There may be water in the base of the d/w (base as below the tank, not under the filter) this will activate the flood safety and give the scenario you have described, so check valve, hoses etc for leaks. You will have to manual clear the water from the base pan to deactivate the safety device. Sit the front of the d/w on a large tower and tip the whole unit forward, the base water will then come out. Whilst you have the side panel off, check that the red rod connected to the pressure chamber is not activating the microswitch.

I hope this helps, Good Luck.

My Bosch SHV46C dishwasher keeps running, even when the door is open, unless you turn the control switch off. Then, when you turn the switch on, it starts running again.


I have a Bosch that was stuck in pump down mode even when the door was open.
The problem ended up being too much water in the drip pan below the unit. There is a float in the drip pan that actuates the same limit switch as the internal overfilled float.
I had recently cleaned the incoming water filter and must have loosened the water line tube.

Bosch dishwasher is leaking fresh water from water inlet assembly


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Dishwasher: BOSCH SHE43 - pump keeps draining


Your dishwasher is stuck in flood mode. Bosch dishwashers are built with flood switches located in the bottom base pan of the dishwasher. The flood switch is connected to a rod that activates a small interlock switch. When water enters the base pan on a Bosch dishwasher, a Styrofoam puck lifts the rod, activating the flood switch.

When the flood switch is activated, the dishwasher will go into a no-fill, only-drain mode. The drain motor may also run with the door open to the unit. This is definitely a sign there is water in the base pan. This can be caused by the drain being clogged. There are two ways to fix:

1. You can uninstall the dishwasher and tip it forward to about a 45 degree angle to drain the water out of the base pan. (This is probably why Ian Bint's solution fixed the problem.) Be sure to put a towel under the dishwasher first so that the water is soaked up in the towel instead of going all over the floor. Once you've drained all the water out of the base pan, reinstall the dishwasher and begin a cycle. If it fills and runs, you are good to go.

2. You can also unplug the unit, then remove the kick panel at the bottom in the front. (It's attached with two screws.) Then get some old washcloths or small towels and reach into the base pan below the dishwasher to soak up the water. The pan is directly behind the plastic base panel rim. Once the pan is empty and dry, your dishwasher will no longer be in "flood mode" and will run properly.

If the base pan keeps refilling with water and the no-fill problem returns, there is definitely another issue, such as a clogged drain. At this point, you need to decide whether to invest in an expert evaluation by a certified Bosch repairman and make the necessary repairs, or buy a new dishwasher.

Bosch built in dishwasher shu4302uc The dishwasher appears to run through the cycle but the cycle takes over three hours. When the cycle finally finishes the dishes are not completely dry. Is there a way...


There are no adjustments for cycle timing. What does affect timing is temperature of the water coming into the DW. The hotter your supply water, the shorter the time to cycle, BUT if your water is too hot, the cycle time may become too short to light the NSF 'Sanitize' indicator. But since the cycle is taking so long, this is an indication that the DW's water heater is not heating the water hot enough to advance the countdown timer in a timely manner. The control logic is waiting for the temp to come up to an appropriate level to ensure adequate washing, rinsing or drying times. Likely your display is showing '1' for a long time as a symptom of this problem, as well.  - This link http://www.applianceaid.com/boschDW.html has procedures to run self-tests on various Bosch models. I suspect that you can confirm a 'heater fault' on your unit by running the self-test.  - This problem invariably relates to a 'heater fault' which has usually been traced to an open solder joint on the control board located behind the switches/indicator lights on front door. If you have a Torx driver, soldering iron & bit of solder, you can effect a repair yourself in about an hour. Otherwise, a replacement control board is required.
If you'd like to attempt replacing the control board yourself, refer to this link for part & DIY information. http://www.appliancejournal.com/appliance-parts/bosch-appliance-parts/bosch-dishwasher-control-module-266746-37/
- Else, place a service call to the tech of your choice.

My bosch exxcel dishwasher will not drain after wash cycle


That is because the water level switch activated by the floating sensor is stuck.

You probably need to have the water level switch replaced.

Sounds like the control module is out -- cost about $100 (I am on my third). I got a "lifetime" warranty when buying my second one. If you are handy, you can replace it yourself. You can call Bosch to confirm this (I did). It mounts inside the door. Mine is a BOSCH 5316.

The draining problem may mean a clogged drain hose -- you have to check it all the way back to either the main drain or the garbage disposal (if you have one). This may be what forced off the impeller wheel.
