Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Bosch Dishwasher has started acting upo. If I turn on the dishwasher it runs the pump for approx 2 seconds then cuts out. This carries on the cycle spraying the soapy suds around the compartment but there is no running pump sound. Any idea how I can access the pump to either attempt to clean it out or to replace it? Or does this indicate another fault that may need attention. Any idea of the cost of parts UK. Thanks for assistance ****

Most dishwashers pump out briefly before filling in order to clear pressure chamber. The next step is the water fill which is monitored by the pressure/level switch. Once water level is attained timer will advance through cold rinse cycle. If no fill is happening, would suspect inlet valve faulty in the first instance.

I have a SHU5305us/u12 and my front door lettering got erase. anyone have a picture or a manual that tells me what each button means.


Cycle Interruption

As a safety feature the dishwasher will automatically turn itself off whenever the door is opened. However, if the door is opened quickly while in a wash or rinse cycle some water may splash out of the dishwasher. For this reason it is recommended that the machine always be switched off before opening the door.



To Interrupt a Cycle

1. Press the on/off button to stop operation.

2. Wait at least 10 seconds (or until the water noises stop) before opening the door.



To Resume a Cycle

1. SHU/SHI models, close the door and press the on/off button.

2. SHV models, push the on/off button and close the door.



Changing a Cycle

For Bosch dishwasher models SHI 6800 and 4320, SHU 5300, 5310 and 6800 press the program button of the desired cycle TWICE. For all other Bosch dishwasher models, press the program button of the desired cycle ONCE. The chosen cycle button (or the light above it) becomes illuminated, showing that it has been selected.

* SHU 3030 and SHU 3130 models do not have program lights.



Cancelling a Cycle

Each control panel shows which buttons to simultaneously push to cancel a cycle. Refer to your dishwasher to find the cancel drain buttons on your particular model.



1. Press the indicated buttons at the same time and hold for approximately 3 seconds.

2. When the drain pump noises stop and the LED display or clean light indicate that the end of the cycle has been reached, the dish

washer is reset.

3. Press the on/off button to turn the dishwasher off.

4. The dishwasher is now ready to run a selected cycle. Add more detergent if necessary.

How do i operate a basic bosch dishwasher


On many Bosch dishwshers (especially those with the controls on top), they expect your to press the appropriate cycle and option(s) buttons, and then press the Start key, ALL WITH THE DOOR OPEN. Immediately after pressing the START button, close the door (within 3 seconds), and the dishwasher should start.

On other Bosch dishwashers, if you open the door, the poser button is automatically turned off. On those models, you must close the door, turn the Power button ON, and THEN press the appropriate cycle & options buttons. If your dishwasher has a START button, then press it; otherwise just wait 10 second with the door closed.

See? There is no such thing as a "basic bosch dishwasher". Next time, if you have a question, please provide the model number of your dishwasher (or other appliance).

Bosch dishwasher starts, pumps, stops and says it's clean


We have the exact same problem with our Bosch SHE5AL06UC/05 dishwasher. Works great when it works, but we are increasingly having a hard time getting the wash cycle to start.

Bosch dishwasher shx55m with bottom tub full of water


The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.

Bosch dishwasher timer freezing


There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. It sounds like a plugged drain system or a possible bad drain pump. That's why you are hearing the pump running constantly. I have written a guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

Bosch dishwasher has water in bottom after cycle is complete


Hi

Kindly check for the following :

Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit.
Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise
If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.

Check pump impeller for damage.
Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.

Please contact for any further clarifications.

A Fixya Rating would be appreciated if.

Thanks

Strange noise from my Bosch Dishwasher SHU66C02UC/14


It just the pump noise. Since your dishwasher works properly you can ignore this noise.
