Question about Dishwashers

Bosch Dishwasher SHU9925UC

Hi, Well, the water is plenty hot! It drains out and then fills up again and has actually leaked out all over my wood floors. Yikes! I turned off the water underneath the sink and that has prevented my washer from filling up and leaking. I am wondering if this was a coincidence because the overflowing dishwasher problem didn't happen until today after I repaired my leaky kitchen faucet. My husband also today used our wet/dry vac on the outside lines to clear the lines because our airconditioner drip pan was overflowing. He thought there was a clog somewhere and it seems to have fixed the problem. But then the dishwasher started malfunctioning directly after that. Is this just a coincidence? Is there a way I could just reset the dishwasher? Thanks for your help.

    Ok this is what I have done and found out so far. First I turned off the breaker to dishwasher. I then took off kick panel and vacuumed out all of the water in the white tray area underneath. When I turned the breaker back on I noticed the dishwasher filling up with water (even with the dishwasher power button turned off!). I think that my dishwasher will never end cycling because it is always refilling up with water. What should I do to stop the constant refilling problem?

Reset is probably a key combination, not sure which one though. Would have to refer to the manual. Unplugging it for a while should also reset it. With all the water cycling and overflowing some water may have gotten into an area of the dishwasher where it shouldn't have.

Here's a post
where the user had a problem that sounds a lot like yours. Read the last paragraph to see how they resolved it.

Here's another link for diagrams, manuals and how to guides for your unit.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Pumps water in don't wash and pumps out again


Not sure whether a schematic will help unless you have some understanding of the location of the components. It would help if you are able to clarify what you mean by pumping in. Usually you should hear the water inlet valve turn on to let water in. Then the wash motor should run to churn the water around and then the drain pump should drain the water out. What is happening is the dishwasher is leaking water as soon as it fills. This causes the flood switch to turn on and that triggers the drain pump to empty the water. Usually Bosch dishwasher have an inline water leakage detector. Check under the sink where water inlet tap is located. There is a device connected through which the water get in. The hose is detecting leakage. Need actual model number of the dishwasher to investigate.

Water overflow then no water


It may be a sticking float switch. The float switch controls the level of water in the dishwasher and if it is sticking on or off it could cause them problems you have
part numbers 263834 and 263185.
Hope this helps

Our bosch shu9902uc dosnt clean the dishes,ive tryed to clean out the drains,blew compressed air thru the drain line,cleaned out the sprayers,still it dosnt clean food off the dishes. water plenty hot and...


make sure you clean the sprayers out real good,if theres debris on the end nozzles they dont spin around too good,also pull out the little service plug that protects debris from getting in the impeller.

Drain pump runs continuously. Nothing else happens!


Water had accumulated in the sump - a plastic tray at the bottom of the dishwasher which catches any leaked water. This operates a float switch which makes the drain pump run all the time. The fix was to tilt the dishwasher backwards to drain away the water. It isn't filling up again, so I'm not sure where the water came from, but I'll keep an eye on it!
