Question about Bosch 24 in. SHY56A05 Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher

Bosch SHU33A06/22 does not drain

Simultaneously I noticed a burned electrical smell in the house, and the dishwasher does not drain. I can't pinpoint the smell as coming from the dishwasher so I suppose it could be a conincidence.

I checked the drain line from the dishwasher to the sink and it's clear. I removed all the filters in the dishwasher and they are clean. The drain pump impeller turns by hand but I do feel more resistance than I'd expect from an electric motor.

Can I test the drain pump motor without major disassembly?
Do you have any other suggestions for troubleshooting?

Thanks

I think so. Check for power at the pump. If so is it running. There are seperate pumps for drain and wash. It is also possible the impeller came loose and the motor is running but not turning the impeller.

Bosch Dishwasher will not power on


I saw my repair man do the following, which you might try...
Open the door and simultaneously press & hold down the power button with the 2 buttons used on your model to "Cancel & Drain." If the unit comes on it now is in self-diagnosis mode. Release the buttons and close the door. The unit should start to fill with water. Press the power button to exit the mode.

Strange smell inside


You should have it checked, but in most cases something has gotten onto the heater element and was burned. But DO NOT, just think this,
check the element in the bottom,and look for a burn mark on it, if you do not see anything on it or a mark,then assume it is an electrical
problem, pump motor, drain motor, and have it checked. Any questions please post back,everyone is happy to help.

This may be the smell of Varnish used in motor winding. When we turn on the machine it gets heated a little bit resulting in a burning electrical smell.

Bosch SHU33a won't drain


Try pouring in enough water to cover the screen in the bottom of the dishwasher, maybe a 2 quarts or so, then run the drain cycle. This should prime the pump and at least tell you wether the drain pump is working or not. Just a trick i've heard and worked for me, not my area of expertise however.

Try running citric acid (3 tablespoons) through.
You can get it from a drug store.
Or, run 1/2 cup vinegar through.
Do this in both the dish washer and the disposal.
After doing this try running some water into the disposal and then see if the next time you run the dishwasher if it still smells.
You could be having a problem with water not staying in the drain trap under your sink that is why if you run water and fill the trap, then you will find out if it was the dry trap that caused the smell from sewer gases backing up into the house trough the garbage disposal.

Bosch Model SHU4006C Dishwasher


I just bought a Bosch made for Sears and I'm trying to return it. I'm going to get a Kitchaid instead. We got ours two months ago and Sears is being difficult in letting us return it. I had a technician come to the house and he said it smells--slightly oily or rubbery. I went to a store and all of the Bosch dishwashers smell. Anyone reading this, don't get the Bosch.

is your dishwasher less than a year old? if so you need to call bosch and have all the gaskets replaced. they tried a new chemical to make the gasket but now have found that after the dry cycle the gaskets put off a strange odor like your discribing. ive changed several gaskets because of this

If it is new- then the fishy smell is almost certainly the motor and circuit boards 'cooking' in- most motorized electrical devices have an initial pong. However if it persists after say 10/15 cycles begin to suspect an incipient fault.
