Question about Bosch 24 in. SHX33A02 / SHX33A06 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Bosch SHX33A: lights come on properly in response to buttons, it has power. Close door, it makes the normal startup sounds, then water flows in. Normally, at this point washer starts into normal cycle. Instead, it just sits there and nothing happens. Forever. Not a matter of patience: we've left it in that state all night long. Have flipped power circuit and started over, everything else I can think of to kick-start it, no change.

    Fortunately cancel/drain combo works so at least I'm able to get the accumulated water out. If the issue I'd motor or bad door latch, I guess I'm down for a service call anyhow.

    Far as sound and feel and initial functionality, the door latch is working OK. I don't guess that rules out some other issue with it, though.

    Any other test I can run to establish exactly what's wrong?

  • jim_upchurch Mar 19, 2011

    When you say "it works" what are you referring to? The cancel/drain button combination? That would seem to require some pumping which seems to suggest motor might be OK?

    Any idea - ballpark - how much a timer replacement costs, parts

Hi

The issue seems to be with the motor or the door latch assembly going bad and should be replaced. The washer won't start the cycle if motor is not working, as its filling with water so I believe that the door is fine and it is the motor that is causing this issue. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    If it works however it wont start a cycle then it is the timer that is bad

    Yes right thats what I mean...if the drain pump is working so the motor is fine rather it is the timer that is bad and should be replaced

    Around $100-$150 for parts and you can add on labor charges if you get this done by a tech

Bosch shx33a starts, fills, then stops. Drains OK when forced to end cycle.


I know this may sound very silly but i had the same problem with mine and all i had to do was pull it out a bit as the drainage pipe at the back was only slightly sqashed against the cupboard but it does matter

New SHE4AM16UC, professionally installed eight months ago. Worked fine with very light usage until now. Dishwasher starts normally but stops and signals "clean" after less than five minutes on any cycle....


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry


All the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2 minutes). You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal. If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (i.e. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

My Bosch Dishwasher doesn't run


double check power to your plug socket ( use bedside lamp)
check fuse in plug
check water supply ( run the water supply directly into pot/bucket)
make sure door closes properly (if built in )
if built in remove and then check!

Bosch Dishwasher won't drain, cancel drain lights blink


when you said "I can run a wash", does the machine act normal for that time frame up to the point of drain? if yes, the pump is fine. sounds more like the micro chip on the board is "confused", but not sure why.
