Bosch DLX series didn't drain, now no power

I have a Bosch DLX Series (shu3336uc/uc12 FD8202080266) failed to drain completely but seems to have gotten all my dishes clean. Now there is no power or rather the machine does not respond to pushing the start button, I.E. seems like there is no power.

Is there a reset button?

I had a Bosch DLX series dishwasher that had multiple problems.

First, it had greyish water in the bottom and pushing the power button did not turn on any lights. it had mostly finished a cycle, but not quite. my first thought was to clean it out. i sponged out all the water and removed and cleaned out the filters from the bottom which were all quite nasty. i found food, tiny bones, etc. I cleaned it out and that did nothing but was still probably the cause of the problem. I called Bosch tech support and asked about areset switch. There is none. They told me to switch off the circuit breaker for 30 MINUTES to reset everything. I did that which did not fix the problem.

I then examined the connector wires (connecting the electric to my house wiring) which are in the front under the kick plate, and discovered that they had MELTED! The wiring supplied by Bosch was stranded wire, and my home wiring is solid core. i trimmed the burnt stuff and reconnected it with new wire nuts. if this happens again i plan to disassemble the dishwasher's electric and replace the stranded wire with the good stuff.

That restored the electric and the lights and display. i then ran a test cycle and it seemed to just hum. my guess after googling a bit was that the float was stuck in the up position, and it was trying to drain. This site http://www.applianceaid.com/boschDW.html told me how to run the test mode.

"To start test program, press and hold both POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH program buttons, then turn unit on by pressing ON/OFF button. When program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press ON/OFF button."

The test mode tested out all functions which I think wound up reseting the float switch which actually fixed the rest of it.

    I had the same problem. Wiring had shorted out/overheated and melted the maret connectors. I reconnected the wiring and all seems to function ok so far. Also found an olive pit after the machine did a test cycle so that could have been the culprit maybe preventing drainage but not exactly sure. We'll see if it holds up after a few more cycles.

    I had the identical problem of water in the bottom and no power. I checked the electrical panel and the circuit breaker was tripped. I opened the bottom cover and the wire nut on the black wire was fried. I stripped the wires and rewrapped them and it worked fine. This is the second time this has happened. Next time I will replace the stranded wires. Thanks for the info.

Have Bosch made Blomberg. NO parts available in Canada. DV pump runs on continuously. Water sensor failure. Expensive repair- replaced with Kenmore due to high risk of fire and NO PARTS available. Avoid Bosch/Blomberg!! Company uncooperative.

I cleaned out the entire bottom, used a plunger, then soaked up all the water, stuck a coat hanger down a hole in the bottom, There does not appear to be any debris clogging anything but to be honest I don't see a filter as I know them.

1st cycle pump very noisy. Nothing seems to be drying properly


Hello,

This means that the drain pump has some debris inside. The drain motor would need to be cleaned. One very common issue on this unit is the control board. The board will often fail and not send power..

Bosch dishwater backed up/leaking


You may have upset the lower door gasket, a kind of "wiper" that keeps the water inside during wash/ Look for a wrinkel in it. Maybe push it down some. the track where it goes my be you can see and it will be self explaning. As for the water not draining.... A hose kinked, A pumpout drain valve not gettign power, I just had the same problem with mine and found a small piece of a plastic baggy in the pump sump covering part of the drain hole. And after that I had no drain and just squished the drain hose at the outlet. I suspect a buildup of grease or maybe some more plastic was inside the the outlet tube. Mine drains fine now. Look for these. And let me know please
