Is there an opening on the right hand side of the inside of the machine?I had this happen and it turned out it was because this hole (opening) needs to be clear during operation. Try running it with nothing on the right hand side and if it doesn't overflow, that's the problem. You can only put short stuff in the back bottom rack on that side.

SOURCE: BOSCH DISHWASHER RUNNING TOO LONG PROBLEM

Bosch dishwashers are designed to heat the water to temp. However it has a 3 hr default if it doesn't reach temp. Start the cycle and see if after 1 hour if the water is hot or cold. If hot, then it is heating the water and the water coming in is just too cold. You may try running the water at the sink to get it hot there first before starting the dw. If the water is cold, then your unit isn't heating the water. At this point I pull the outer door panel, find the largest wires on the control unit and put my meter leads on them then start the machine. You will see 120 volts on your meter. Start the machine in light washes and with in 10 to 15 minutes you should see 0 voltage. Than means the relay has closed in the control and the hot line of the 120 volts is being sent to the heater. If this never happens, then you have a bad control. Bosch dishwashers have a 5 yr part warranty on the electronic control. Now If you get the 0 volts, I will put my amp meter on one of the same wires and check for 9 to 11amps. If that isn't there, then you have a bad heater assy. Hope this helps

SOURCE: bad odor when open door after cycle

This is just a suggestion, run a cycle and after a few mins of it washing, open the door and add a cup of bleach and let the washer run. See if this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Bosch SHE 4AM12UC dishwasher. My problem

There is either food debris blocking the action of the dispenser lid, or the solenoid which releases the door is sometimes failing to operate. The latter fault can be due to either a faulty solenoid or a loose/damaged cable connection anywhere between the main board and the solenoid: bear in mind that every time the door opens and closes there's a flexible connector which gradually fatigues and there are electrical connections which can be loosened if the door is regularly allowed to slam shut.

Your machine is still in current production, so it may still be under the manufacturer's warranty. if so, then repairs will be free provided the fault is not due to a failure to follow the operating instructions.

It's not really a DIY fix unless you are a competent and experienced home appliance repairer, but you can check for any food debris around the dispenser lid. If in any doubt run the machine empty using dishwasher cleaner. The possible electrical faults I've mentioned aren't necessarily expensive in terms of parts, but the labour will typically be about one hour.

An alternative is to use the new detergent dispenser from Finish. This sits in your machine, preloaded with twelve doses of detergent which are automatically released with every wash. It's an expensive way to buy dishwasher detergent, but it's a quick and relatively cheap fix which may buy you time until you can afford a proper repair.

If you do think that you may be able to diagnose and repair the fault on a DIY basis then I highly recommend the Haynes Dishwasher Repair Manual which you can either buy or perhaps borrow from a public library.

I'm hope that you have found my reply to be of use, all that I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

Bosch dishwasher overflowing


Check the float. The float is a mushroom shaped item on the bottom of the DW. Gently Check to see that it moves freely.

Remove front panel then you can access the handle screws. Open the door and remove the 'torx' screws surrounding the perimeter of the door.

Bosch dishwasher SHU4326uc/u12 is leaking from the door. How to change low door sealer?


I have had the same problem and finally stumbled upon the answer today!

If you are looking inside your dishwasher, look mid way up the right side wall and there is a valve/hole...if that hole is covered up (e.g. cutting board, ect) it will cause water leakage.

Weird huh? But that recommendation is coming straight from the Bosch headquarters in Canada. I would not have believed it otherwise, but I have read this solution twice, and now myself, have not had a leak since I stopped placing things over that hole! My model is SHU3326UC.

Dishes are not clean due to insufficient water. Arms are clean, strainer is clean, water supply is OK,some soap is still in opened dispenser


Disassembled solenoid, found plugged inline strainer (caused by water shut-down in building to replace recirc. pump) Pulled and flushed filter basket, problem solved. Solenoid must be removed to access filter which is in sol. body. I hope this can help anyone who does'nt have a tech manual or flow diagram.
