    I did remove it and there was water in the base. this model has the entire bottom enclosed in a white plastic base. looks to me like everything is covered up. I drianed all the water out and it still does the same thing. could not find the switch you referred to. ie. ( the red plastic stick)

Danimaldds there are 2 pumps in this dw, a drain pump and a circulation pump. If it is the drain pump that is running, look in the base under the machine. Remove the kick plate and see if there is water in the base. If so remove the water and see if the pump shuts down. If not look to the left side under the machine there is a red plastic stick, lift up on it with a wooden or plastic spoon. Do this a couple of times. It is possible the overfil float is stuck. If the circulation pump keeps running, then the control unit is the cause. Hope this helps

    What I am talking about removing is the black toe kick plate at the bottom. This will allow you to reach in a see if water is in the base. Remember to turn off the power 1st to avoid getting shocked.

    It is on the left side behind the water valve next to the side wall about 4inches in from the front.It is easier to see when the outer door panel and the stiffner plate is removed. If you do that 2 blocks will fall off. They go on only 1 way on the hinges.

If the owner's manual does not give an explanation of the error code is, in the troubleshooting guide, you'll need a service / repair manual. Perhaps calling around to a few local appliance parts and repair shops- someone can clue you in on what the problem is and how to repair it.

My Bosch dishwasher has had a problem since we had it installed. It smells like garbage after sitting for a few hours. This problem is there whether it has been run or not. Water is always standing in...


Was the drain tube that hooks into the sink drain passed over the partition between the sink area and washer area or through a low-level hole. If through a low-level hole, try rerouting the tube over the partition. This forms a 'trap area' to isolate the sink drain from the washer pump area. Hope this helps!

I have a bosh dishwasher, it is not taking in any water, it seems to be tryin to go through the cycle but no water it being pumped in. The hose is clear & the water pipes are clear.


The fill valve or the electrical signal to it is not working.

These valves are akin to a servo valve and a very small "pintle" valve controls a diaphram that drives the main valve seat. There is USUALLY a filter right in the valve that is easily plugged if your water has debris in it.

Remove the valve, disassemble it, and put a new "kit" of seats and seals in it and clean the filter by backflushing or replace it. It is a tiny screen.

Spray arms do not turn. water to them but not


I had the same problem and fixed it by disassembling the lower spray arm and return filter, and cleaning all the junk out.
Most dishwashers have 'risers' that bring the water up to the top sprayer or arm located under the top rack. If the recirculating pump is plugged even a little there won't be enough volume or pressure to get the water up there.
Test this by putting a dry muffin pan in the top rack, flat, and running the dishwasher for a bit. If there is no water on the top (or the bottom) either the top sprayer or the sprayer arm underneath the top rack is not getting enough volume.
To fix this you need to clean out the screen and filter, where the water returns to be recirculated. If you don't have any confidence to remove the parts and clean it out yourself, get an appliance repair person to do the job.

My Bosch Dishwasher doesn't clean


Check the following to address this issue--


1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.

Bosch SHV 4303 Dishwasher not draining


I have a Bosch Classixx with what sounds the same problem.It would not drain properly and hummed even when the front door was opened.After a couple of days it ponged a bit.This is what I did.Sypnoned off yukky water with a short length of hose (fill pipe with water from tap don't **** on it!!).Cleaned filter under cutlery tray at bottom.Then put a TEASPOON of bleach if on main drainage or dishwasher cleaner if septic tank.Ran on a hot wash and see if it sorted problem-it didn't but did clean system.
Syphoned off again -take care.Isolated electric and water supply.-Should do that first perhaps Pulled out from under counter undid drain hose at sink end and water at machine end.I then put machine on side and undid bottom silver plate.Note position of polystyrene float switch cover.I then followed drain hose to drain pump and undid it by twisting it like a bayonet light bulb undoing clip levering with screwdriver (not for feint hearted as easy to break) -I then checked little impeller for foreign object-found none so pulled off pump housing by rubber hose to bigger pump thing next to it and found small bit of plastic put it back together and hey presto problem sorted-I was told it might take two hours for the expert to do it once on his workhop bench-it took me about 30 mins plus a bit of head scratching and a yank and push or two which could have been rather expensive -I was lucky!

Most Bosch washability issues have to do with the machine not pumping out fully.
Check for a partial clog in the air gap:
That's the silver dome on the back of the sink. Not all homes have an air gap for the dishwasher. (Though it is highly recommended!) Lift off the silver cover. Unscrew or unclip the plastic cap on the top. Look inside. Toothpicks are often found there.
Check for debris in the sump by:
Remove the lower rack, the lower spray arm, and screens. Use a #15 Torx bit to remove the cover over the drain pump suction. Remove any debris you find.

Regarding the white residue, make sure the rinse aid is filled.
