Question about Bosch Dishwashers

1 Answer

I want to buy the machine, listed below, but I don't want to pay $130 for installation Bosch Dishwasher SMS50E12AUW. Do I need an expert or can I do it myself. I have installed my own dishwashers before, but they may be a little more complicated than an inflow outflow pipe now :)

Dishwashers are no more complicated to install than before. It's still just 1 water pipe connected and the drain hose connected to the drain and plug it in. Bish bosh bash. Hope this helps.

I need somr explaination and information for buying a dishwasher

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France

I'm so sorry but this forum is not able, nor in a position, to supply any type of explanation and information, manual, parts list, installation instructions, electrical or schematic diagrams direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)
Also members on Fixya are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer at all, just using their experience gained probably over many years.

Having said that, although you have posted to the washing machine forum, I will offer some suggestions. Visit vendors/shops, have a look at vendors and manufacturer's sites to see which make and model might best suit your requirements. The expectation is that the more you pay the better the machine BUT that is not necessarily so! We always bought AEG/Bosch in the UK AND bought our washer and dryer across with us (but not the integrated dishwasher) to France but when we had a new kitchen installed we foolishly chose another 'white goods' manufacturer AND at a higher price. The dishwasher, oven, fridge AND freezer all had faults within a relatively short time of use. In comparison I replaced our Bosch washer motor and belt last year (at a cost of GBP250) after nearly 21 years of use!!!
Do you have an 'independant' magazine provider which tests such things so you could check?

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Have a bosch dishwasher Mod. No. SGI53A55AUSS installed March 2004. All filters clear, exit pump clear and working. Switch on washer can hear exit pump working but machine does not accept water to fill....


You said you had water under the dishwasher,did you remove the lower panel below the door and check for water in the base frame as well. Bosch dishwashers have system in the base frame that detects water in base and cuts power off to every component except drain pump till it no longer sees the water in the base.

Hope this helps

Don't understand the incomprehensible door and general installation instructions for the aqua star. Just uses pictures, anywhere available that uses WORDS?

  • 1 what you'll need
    Electric drill and hole cutting bit
    Adjustable wrench
    Teflon pipe tape
    Drain pipe for dishwasher
    Dishwasher connection kit - available at your home store (should contain water supply line for dishwasher as well as necessary connectors and compression couplers).
    New dishwasher

  • 2Determine that you have access to the hot water supply line, the drainpipe and an electrical connection under the sink. Installing the dishwasher will require extending the hot water supply line to the dishwasher, connecting the dishwasher drain to the drainpipe under the sink, and plugging the dishwasher in. If your home was not plumbed in anticipation of a dishwasher, you will need to change some fittings under the sink to make these connections possible. (See below)
  • 3Read the instruction manual that comes with your new dishwasher. Installing a dishwasher is straightforward but you want to be sure you understand and are comfortable with the necessary steps.

    Need to convert 2700ES from NG to LP and just purchased the conversion kit. What is the proceedure? Can not find a Bosch tech to do the conversion in this area (12430). I am told that I need special...

    I don't have good news.
    You are attempting a conversion that local technicians are refusing to do.
    There is a reason why we service guys steer clear of some things: liability and continual problems afterward.

    Contact Bosch and find the service bulletin for that procedure.
    After all this is a highly technical and finicky machine hooked to a gas line located in proximity to people.

    If this procedure is going to cost more than $400-600, and remember there is a risk it will not work afterward or will be a continual problem, then consider installing tank-type LP water heater from local box store. I recommend this.

    For others in same situation: NG to LP conversions are not supported or recommended by every manufacturer. This applies to tank and tankless.
    Also check there is a qualified service technician in your area before installing tankless.
    Read the manual before buying.
    Tankless gas savings are $1-8 per month, but all costs are energy.
    Tankless cannot be exposed to more than 11 grains hardness in the water.
    Tankless are maintenance heavy, and with expected repairs, maintenance and cost of parts, cost of machine and replacement cost, a simple tank-type water heater is cheaper by far.

    Upvote the help.
    And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
    For a price, expert works with you while you work on water heater or any do-it-yourself project.
    Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

    The dishwasher runs on both the "regular" and

    Hello, Welcome to FixYa. Your dishwasher is suffering from the same thing thousands of Bosch built machines have suffered from. I'm presently on my iphone so I can't post my normal solution to this, but I can share the address which will take you there if you copy&paste the address below. Although it refers to a "SHU66" series, all the same info pertains to yours. Good luck, let me know if I can help further. Regards, Macmarkus :)

    When dishwasher runs it is continuous for about 3 hours Bosch clasixx free standing

    It is possibly the water heater, basically if you run a normal wash at 65 degrees and the heater has failed, the d/w stat is waiting for the water temp to reach the desired temp. It will continue to wash, waiting for this to happen and eventually it will give up the ghost and time out, aborting the cyle.
    The instantaneous water on this model is around £100 and too be honest is best fitted by an expert, so if this is the problem you'll be looking at a reasonable repair bill.
    If you decide on a repair and you are in the UK, contact BSH Home Appliances who are the repair section of Bosch as they offer a one off payment on your first call out (even though they know there is definately a fault) this covers the repair cost for the first visit and then covers the complete machine for 12 months. You can pay in instalments for 10 months which will take the stick out a touch (this is called repair +).
    Really hope this helps, good luck.

    We have a Blanco BFDW 650S dishwasher approx 6 years old. We have been quoted over $450 to replace the inlet valve. Is it worth spending this on a machine this old? Am I being overcharged for this work as...

    When you buy Bosch, you buy quality, quality costs, it is that simple. That price for you valve is a bout normal, but there are other consumables that are used as well, as travel, and labor. etc. You need to contact your Bosch agent in your local area and inquire there, they will direct you to a properly trained professional, again, which one must pay for. If you want to do it yourself, it is indeed possible, what one man can do, so can another, as they say. I will give you some links below. You also need a service manual they are hard to find, there are pay sites however, simply Google Blanco BFDW 650S service manual (enter) and look through listing for a PDF file to download.

    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.
