    Hi



    I appreciate the work you are doing. Have above DW for approx. 8 years. I had the melted soldering on the heating relay and fixed it in 2003. The machine was running just fine all the time. Now suddenly the DW doesn't drain. The pump's impeller runs free and I miss the relay click from the control board. Any idea? Another soldering problem? Or bad chip? Or relay driving semiconductor/transistor? Or any other signal detector that prevents the drain pump to run at the beginning of a cycle?



    Thank you in advance

I checked the control panel, it turned out to work correctly, the drain pump has got the juice. Then I opened up the coverabove the drain pump (1 screw, below the drain filter) and God forbids, I found a chicken bone blocking the impeller of the pump. How it could get beyond two filter levels? Somebody must have opened the filter without looking if there was anything on the top of it!

So when the drain doesn't work next time, look for the most obvious: some garbage beyond the filters.

This was a BOSCH SHU5305UC/U12 type DW and until now it is fine.
When I checked the panel, I found that the power connector (the only triple one on the left side) had some burn trace on the black wire connector. It must be an erosion due to high amperage for the heating. I'll have to get soon replacement because erosion will continue until the whole DW will stop.

Doesn't drain out all the way water stays in


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.

Hi

Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. However, if it seems to be a lot more water then it is due to clogged drain filter or drain pump. Turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.
