Question about Bosch 24 in. SGS47E02 Exxcel Free-standing Dishwasher

Dishwasher refusing to run or running occasionally

My washer pump runs continually even though there is nothing in the sump and continues to run even when i open the door. I suspect that the problem i have is the anti-flood switch since when i tilted the machine, a lot of water came out and it then did a whole cycle successfully on just two occasions before it refused to do more. However, I cannot fathom how to take the thing apart! I can't take the sides off without first removing the top but there is no visible means of detatching it. Does it snap straight on or do I force it forward or back please?

Siemens Dishwasher Fault


there is a water level sensor in the bottom of the machine if this is faulty and stays on, this will indicate to the pump there is water still in the machine. I would check this sensor it might be blocked with debris and has blocked in the closed position. that woudl be the best start for this issue.

i hope this was useful.

Ldf6920st LG dishwasher. Pump runs continuously.


Continuous run of DW "drain pump" is common problem, with simple solution, and without "pulling" the DW!

Because the problem is likely a "stuck float riser assembly", a mechanical "glitch", from crud build up, I recommend trying one "might get lucky fix" first.

Look up above the door and remove (usually two) screws holding two metal "tabs" to bottom of wood counter. This should allow you to "rock" the unit a little. This might allow the float assembly to operate.

A. You have removed and cleaned the screens to the pump inlet and have manually added hot water which the pump removes but the pump just continues to run, even when you open the door? You should still be able to use controls to shut unit off. If not, you should be able to turn DW off at circuit breaker panel. Find and open the breaker any how, because "I'm sending you in!"

There are two sheet metal "plates" about 4 inches high, 24 inches wide below the door on Bosch (and others) dish washers. Remove both, usually they can just be carefully removed.

Lay with face on floor and use flashlight to look "up and into" the left bottom side of the DW. About a foot into the bottom left side of the unit look for a red or orange (usually) plastic rod about the size of a pencil rising vertically out of a thin plastic "tank". This is a "sump" of some sort (???) and the bottom of the rod is a "float". The top of the "pencil" activates a micro switch. Junk in "tank" or on micro switch stops rise of the rod which keeps pump running.

Carefully, manually lift the orange rod with a long wooden spoon. Several times. You should hear the micro switch click. Don't be sticking screwdrivers or anything metal in there. Even with the power off.

Turn breaker back on. This may solve most common problem in first five years for many brands of dish washers.

Good luck.

Bosch SHU runs even when the door is open, what do i need?


Hi Jeffrey,

This depends what you mean by "runs". If the dishwasher continues with a wash cycle - i.e. circulating water - with the door open, the simple answer is that you have a defective door microswitch.

However, I suspect what you perceive to be the dishwasher running, is actually the drain pump running continuously. This happens when the anti-flood protection system has been activated and continues even when the door is opened. The simplest way to check is to open the door (while it's "running") and pour some water into the tub. If the water drains away immediately, this shows the drain pump is running and the anti-flood protection has been activated.

This may be due to water having leaked into the base of the dishwasher, but it could be as simple as a stuck or defective float-switch.

Please try the simple test above then post back for further assistance. If you're planning to investigate or repair this yourself, you're going to need a Torx T20 screwdriver and a multi-meter would be useful as well.

Regards, BElectric

My 72640 AEG washing machine continually leaks even though the filter cap is tightly in place. What could be the problem please? Kate Comins


you have a hole in the rubber boot seal and need to change it,also i've seen a buildup of detergent and hair stuck on the bottom side of the front door,when the door is closed the water was traveling down the pieces of hair and leaking through the bottom of the door,but if it's leaking under where the pump is and it's not the pump or hoses it's the boot seal.open the door and pull open the boot seal and run your fingers all around until you find the hole

I have a Bosh Logic dishwasher SGS65L12GB/04 The other day it got to 1 min left and would not stop pumping out water and continued even with the door open. After 5 mins playing around it started working...


Hi Jonathan,

Welcome to FixYa.

Your float may have got stuck or it's possible that you have water leaking into the bottom of the washer. In the bottom of the wash compartment, next to the drain you will find a plastic dome/mushroom (the float). You might need to rotate the bottom spray arm to see it.

Turn the washer on so that the pump starts to run, open the door and push down on the float. This should stop the pump running. When you let go of the float, if it rises back up on its own, then it's almost certain that you have water in the bottom of the washer. If this is the case please post back for further assistance. If the float stays down, then it may have simply got stuck.

Please try this simple test and post back with the results.

Regards,
BElectric

Kenmore calypso washer will not spin the clothes ld or ob signal continue to show even after i have evenly distributed the clothes


The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control. You say this happens when the washer is empty also. One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.

If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.

The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.
