Bosch NOT completing cycle NOR draining water

PLEASE HELP! It will not drain the water completely, nor will it complete the cycle. I have no clue what the deal is. The line is not kinked.

    Thank you very much. I am sure it's not installed properly. I still have not been able to use it, and I have a thing about dishes in the sink. It makes me nuts!



    I'll call someone to come out.

    Same problem here after 4 months of working properly. Lowe's blamed plumbing in house, not their installation. Plumber found no problem in pipes, but fiddled w/dishwasher drain tube until it started draining again. Anyone know the correct set-up of drain tubes for a Bosch?

This may or may not be the issue: I have friends that bought a new dishwasher - I'm not certain, but I think it was a Bosch. They did have similar draining issues.

With their dishwasher, the installer did not follow directions properly. Yes, he'd "installed a million dishwashers", but was too self-confident to check the directions for something particular to this machine. There was something about the way one of the drain or supply hoses was supposed to loop around that was unique to installing this brand, and that ended up being the problem.

Make sure that your machine was installed properly in this regard, even if your installer says they know what they were doing. Call Bosch's customer service dept. if you have further questions.

The washer is flashing 5d and then changes to F-21. Will not complete the cycle. I unplugged the washer to let it reset but it still does the same thing.


This problem could be with the supply or drain line. Shut off intake water valve to the Washer.
Unscrew the supply lines both hot and cold, check for any sediment in the screen, such as hard water deposits.

Make sure lines are not kinked. Once you have reattached the supply lines insure that the supply line valves are open fully.

Check that the drain line is not plugged or kinked in any way.

To do a reset, unplug the unit for a few minutes.

Please let me know if this has resolved your issue.

Washer won't drain. Water remains in bottom of washer after cycled is complete.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn't overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn't working properly, the drain pump isn't working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home's drain lines. First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. If you have checked the drain hose and can't locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Not draining water after cycle has completed

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal.

First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Whirlpool dishwasher is not fully draining after cycle complete


THE PROBLEM SOUNDS TO BE WITH THE INSTALLATION OF THE DISHWASHER ITSELF. YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE YOUR DRAIN HOSE IS NOT KINKED AND ALSO THAT THE DRAIN HOSE FORMS A LOOP. IN OTHER WORDS IT SHOULD GO STRAIGHT UP BEHIND THE UNIT AND THEN DOWN INTO THE SINK OR DISPOSAL.THIS SHOULD TAKE CARE OF YOUR PROBLEM.
