Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU66C02 / SHU66C06 Built-in Dishwasher

8 Answers

Bosch shu8805 (2002 model)

Dishwasher cont. filling (flooded house) while 'off'.
Now it continues to pump out sump, with or without
pressence of water; with door opened or closed.
Never starts filling or wash cycle.

Dishwasher was moved a bit during recent counter top
instilation but successfully washed/rinsed load of dishes
prior to the current 'demon possession'. Do I need to replace
the Siemens controler?

    The dishwasher over flowed - did NOT leak. The problem

    that the drain pump runs with the door open was never

    addressed. I would be happy to replace the inlet valve

    and the float if I thought it would help, but there seems

    to be bigger issues looming.

    My dishwasher has had a chain of events/symtoms
    that are not being looked at as a whole. I have gotten copy pasted information for individual isolated problems. My question had to with a need to replace the Siemens controller.

    Let met spell it out:

    1. Dishwasher got moved 8-10" and back.
    2. Ran a normal cycle after cabinets back together
    3. Drain pump initiating intermittant until
    off switch
    4. Dishwasher overflowed
    5. Now the drain pump runs continuously with power switch on, regardless of door open or close
    6. Does not fill now or start any cycle

  • hessr Aug 18, 2008

    Did not find a reset button - sounded too good to be true. I need some real time advise.

  • hessr Aug 19, 2008

    I would cherish advice from someone who has actually fixed a dishwasher, especially a BOSCH dishwasher. Anyone out there in repairland think it a good idea to spend $90 on the controler.

  • hessr Aug 19, 2008

    I just want to reitterate that the drain pump runs with the door open, a function that occurs only after the door latch swith slides to the on position.

Was Drain solenoid checked? Beneath some dishwashers, there's a timer-activated drain solenoid (an electro-magnetic coil) that opens a drain valve, to drain the wash water through a hose and out to the house's plumbing waste system.

    there is a reset on it some where. try on the prong side of the plug.
    it sounds like it is over filling forcing to much psi on the door seal.

It did not leak, the problem, I understood is that is not draining water until it overflows, check the following:

The water doesn't drain from the machineIf the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:

Drain line/air gap
Pump
Drain valve and/or solenoid
Belt
Motor
Timer

HI,

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:

Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses
Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack


  • Spray arm


  • Spray arm support


  • Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

    If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:





    Water-inlet valve

    The
    water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is
    defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located
    behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the
    device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a
    rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.




    Float switch

    The
    float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below
    the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the
    dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the
    dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets
    caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the
    dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

  • Priya darshan Aug 18, 2008

    ok,then please try cleaning the float once:






    Step1:


    Open the dishwasher door and locate the float switch. It should be a
    cylinder-shaped piece of plastic and may be set to one side along the
    front of the cabinet or near the sprayer head in the middle of the
    machine.






    Step2:


    Check the float to make sure it moves freely up and down on its shaft.
    (You may have to unscrew and remove a protective cap to get to the
    float.) If the float sticks, you'll need to clean away any debris or
    mineral deposits that are causing it to jam.






    Step3:


    Pull the float off the shaft, then clean the inside of the float with a bottle brush. Clean the shaft with a scrub brush.







    Step4:


    Reinstall the float and check that it moves smoothly.







    Step5:


    Set the dishwasher to fill, and check to see if it overflows. If it
    still malfunctions, you need to replace the float switch.

Drain pump won't turn off


Hi,

The reason the drain pump continously runs is because it is trying to remove any water too avoid any further flood as there is a flood in the base of the unit which activates the float switch and constantly activates the drain pump until the water has gone. Isolate the unit at the power switch and remove the bottom panel under the door panel. Dry up the water as best possible with a towel. Run the unit again and check for any water leaks. You may just have over sudded the unit with too much detergent. Only use 2 teaspoons of powder. To start with while testing don't use any detergent. Good luck

Hope this helps.

Dishwasher pump keeps running


This is caused by a water leak into the base pan,it will trigger the anti flood and the machine will continously drain out even with the door open,you need to establish what is leaking,if you leave the appliance standing for a few days it will start again as the water will evaporate however if the fault returns you will definetly have aleak on the appliance which will require further investigation.

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.

Bosch SHU43C Dishwasher


Is there no water coming in( hear no water at all) or no water NOT staying in ( drain motor running) ... the float switch is a safety to keep the dishwasher from flooding ...turns on the drain motor as soon as the door is closed..

I could check the control and see if you have power to the water valve.. maybe a control problem if no power..

Water flooding out


Hi KellyW,

 

The dishwasher drain hose may be clogged.  When the dishwashr starts up can you hear the water running into the Sink faucet drain. If not inspect the hose that attaches to the Sink Drain for restrictions.  Also in the bottom of the dishwasher you should have a filter.  If this filter is clogged you cannot expel water.  Clean the filter.
