Question about Bosch 18 in. SRS55L02 Logixx Slim-Line Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher only starts if I tip it, then it sticks during cycle and hums

When I switch on the dishwasher it won't start until I tip it (at which point some water comes out at the bottom), it then gurgles and suddenly starts pumping water. The digital display however tells me it will take 199min to do the wash and then stays on this or sometimes it moves through the cycle but then sticks and just makes a humming sounds. I then have to switch it off and open the door. Most times it's cleaned but still wet but with no water in the main compartment. It started on the one cycle and has gradually happened on all the cycles now. My dishwasher is just over 3yrs old...should I just buy a new one? I'm thinking this may be expensive to fix!

    Not sure what time fill? when I reconnected and switched on again I got water but now all over the floor! Still showing 199min to do a cycle that should take 30min!

The left side (behind the metal side panel)of your machine has a blue and yellow mechanism which regulates the level of water for your machine(if there is no big yellow disk at the top of the mechanism then your machine is time fill). It also has a built in safety that if water should enter the white pan on the bottom, the drain pump will activate and stay on. It sounds like the machine problem has to to with water and flow level. You can observe the filling and running of your machine with the side panel off. (the connections at the switches on the float assembly are live be careful)

    The time fill is controlled by the machine board but it sounds like your machine is not this configuration. The inlet water should flow throught the float assembly and into the bottom of the stainless tank through a small clear tube. If water flows out of the top of the float assembly then you need an inlet valve. if water is entering the white pan then it is possible that it is shorting a sensor causing the long readout and cycle time. once the leak is sorted out try running a rinse and hold cycle which should take only about 19 minutes. It sounds like the problem may actually be in the main control but be sure to sort tout the water leak first.

My samsung dishwasher has a constant buzz that occurs during start up and lasts through all of the cycles. I saw where there is an electrical noise filter and did not know if that could be the cause.

No a noise filter is a different kettle of fish. That stops electrical interference noise from affecting your television, radios and electrical devices.

The most likely source of the hum is the start capacitor on the motor, or the motor itself.

https://www.google.com/search?q=samsung+dishwasher+start+capacitor

This has a different idea

Humming or Grinding If your Samsung dishwasher makes noise when starting that sounds like a low hum, it's part of normal function. The motor makes this sound as it operates throughout the wash cycle. However, a dishwasher making loud humming noise or grinding sounds could mean that debris is caught in the drain pump.

Samsung Dishwasher Making Noise? Follow These Tips

This says the drain pump, but the drain pump only runs to empty out so it wouldn't do it all the time.

tip

So your Dishwasher sits and "Humming" cannot turn off, no response.

Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

Opened lid during wash cycle. Machine stopped but later restarted. The same thing happened two weeks later, but the touchpad has no function. It is getting electrical power to the dishwasher. Thoughts?
