Question about Bosch Dishwashers

1 Answer

Bosch built in dishwasher model # SHX46A02UC

The water does not drain out of the dishwasher after clean cycle. My handyman has taken the d/w completely out and checked all the elec, hoses, air gap, etc. When pressing the two buttons which are supposed to start the drain cycle, we hear a humming sound but not a pumping sound, and no pumping takes place. In addition, although this is a fairly new Bosch and cleans well, there is always a bad odor after only a day or so. I have tried pouring in white vinegar (the solution advised by my local Sears, where d/w was purchased) but this is a temporary fix. Problem is also compounded because I live on Kauai in the middle of the Pacific Ocean so GOOD repair persons are few and far between. HELP!

Bosch shv56c03uc/114 Water is not draining


Check drain hose first.

If you do not find any blockage, then you will need to access the pump, remove pump hose and look for blockage in there.

If there is no blockage at all, then either the water level switch, a faulty pump, a wiring problem, or a faulty timer board can be cause the machine not draining.

Bosch SHX46A02Uc/21


it is likely a control module issue. I will take mine apart this weekend to verify what others have said: solder joint on circuitboard burns out from possible overheating, and DW doesnt go into rinse cycle. Try rinse and hold cycle to see if it stops on its own. mine does, but the other cycles which require the rinse to go to 156 degrees do not; the continue to run until I cancel and drain.

Dishwasher doesnot drain


Once you ensure that the drain lines are clear, this usually means that the drain pump is stuck, clogged or faulty.

Try first unplugging power cord for ten minutes.

If this does not help, the pump is clogged or defective.


Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.

Enter model number on this website to find schematics and replacement parts.
