Question about Bosch 24 in. SHY56A05 Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher
Whenever I push the on button, my dishwasher makes a humming sound like a running motor nonstop. I have tried flipping the breaker on it, and that had no effect. It seems like it is stuck in one of the cycle steps. I have noticed in the last few days that every once in awhile there would be standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher. I have 3 boys, so I just figured they must have interrupted the cycle in some way. I would start the cycle over and it would seem to complete. I also noticed an odor on completed cycles at times. It is stuck at the moment. Any help would be appreciated, especially a reset or something of this nature.
The humming noise and the fact that there is standing water indicates that the motor is stuck and trying to break free. Is the odor that you mentioned smell like a heated coil? This is a common problem with dishwahsers; but does not have an easy fix. If you want to try, first disconnect the power supply and open the bottom panel (below the door), Normally held by some screws. Then with a flashlight see if you can see the motor housing. You can then reach under and manually rotate the motor to break it free. Do it a few times and then reconnect the power and run the dishwasher and hopefully it will work. -Vish
