Prgramme not starting or finishing

I have a bosch washer and there seems to be a sensor in the bottom (looks like a mushroom) that senses whether there is water left in the machine. I t does not seem to be able to sense that all the water has gone and therefore keeps trying to pump the water out and will either not start the programme, if it does start it will not finish the programme. If I lift up the "mushroom" it usually ends the programme. Any ideas???

The "mushroom" bottom is just a lever that operate a switch. It seems that a part of the switch's mechanism is broken or release.

I turned the Bosch Series 4 washing machine knob to the off position too soon after the load had finished washing. How do I now open the door?

Most washers will not unlock the door if it senses any water inside, select drain and spin or rinse and spin to rinse the clothes and drain the water. Once it has completed the cycle the door should unlock. If it does not there is usually an emergency release on the look lock inside the machine by removing the top or front panel.

Bosch SL1501B dishwasher doesn't drain water after the washing cycle. Also with new drain pump. What else could it be?

Check the following.
1. The drain hose has to be discharging at a high enough point to prevent water flowing back into the machine.
2. Make sure your drain hose is not twisted or kinked.
3 . Make sure your drain line is not blocked push a flexible hose down it to dislodge any fat/debris
4.If your drain line discharges into a shared drain with another appliance i.e. garbage disposal make sure it is not blocked.
5. You may have a blockage at the inlet to the pump which would slow down the pumping rate,
Since you mentioned the mushroom shaped float allowing the washer to empty this may be defective.
See the link attached.
Hope this helps.

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.

The washer floods at the end of the cycle the pump is working this i know because when i manualy lift the mushroom float it pumps out could it be that there is a membrane in the mushroom float that is...

Hi there,

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "floods at the end of the cycle". Is water leaking from the washer and where from?

The mushroom float isn't a water level sensor to determine when the washer should pump out. It's a second level safety feature to prevent flooding if the washer overfills. The flow meter regulates the water level in the washer.

Your pump is obviously working and there is no blockage in the drain hose, etc as the water pumps out when you lift the mushroom float. It sounds like the pump isn't receiving a signal from the controller to pump out at the end of the wash cycle. Lifting the float bypasses the controller and runs the drain pump.

Please try the following simple test:

1. Switch the programme selector to "Off"
2. Empty a bucket of water into the bottom of the washer
3. Turn the programme selector to any wash cycle
4. Press and hold the Reset button (start/stop) for at least 3 seconds. The washer should drain.

Please try this test and let me know if the washer pumps out. Please can you also be a little more specific about how and where the washer is flooding.

Thanks,
BElectric

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

BOSCH DISHWASHER Flooding

Removing the water level sensor it is not a difficult operation, it is held with one bolt at the base of the floater arm.

The problem is that you cannot be sure that the floater is not working unless you find out that the floater is filled with water or stuck.

There is an electronic test to verify if water level switch activated by the floating sensor is working. Instructions here: Bosch dishwasher helps.

You can find replacement water level switch , and schematics on websites below:
