Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher
My Bosch dishwasher is about 2 1/2 years old. It has operated with no problems for 2.5 years. I tired to turn run it this week with no success. No lights on the door and no power to unit. I removed the toe panel to gain access to the electrical. I found the wiring had melted along with the wire nut on the black side and some on the white side. The black 12/2 just broke after having melted off from the wire nut. I used the existing awg 12/2 with ground that was attached to previous dishwasher. No additional appliances were added to the existing load. The directions from Bosch had called for 14/2 with ground. Could this be a problem? Could I have made a bad connection for the start? Any thoughts to what might have caused the problem. I have done lots of wiring in my home prior to this.
Bill that is exactly what happened, the connection wasn't correct from the start. The Bosch dishwasher pulls 11 amps during the cycle while heating the water to temp. The cooler the water the longer the heat time. Your dishwasher came with a set of wire nuts that where suppose to be used. Be sure when you correct this to use 20 amp wire nuts with the unit. This will stop this from happening again.

The problem with this solution is that a 12/2 is a larger wire than a 14/2 ..the 12/2 wires are just fine you mush have had a loose connection at the wire nuts..
