Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU6802UC / SHU6806UC Built-in Dishwasher
Within the last few weeks the "Refill Rinse Agent" light came on and the D/W would run its cycle down to 1 minute and just keep running. When I open the door the water is hot but it will not drain. I refilled the rinse agent according to the manual with liquid jet dry and nothing changed. I turned off the power at the breaker and still no change. I put it on rinse and hold and the water drained out. Any thoughts?

The only "fast" way is to remove the dispenser completely and rinse with warm water until clean! (by removing front panel and then disconnecting jumpers and clips...can be tricky to do alone, as you need 3 hands to pry clips from dispenser to remove from door!) Oshie.

Rinse aid is important for wash performance. open door where the dial is should be hole there it be. fill slowly most take up-to 85-125ml from empty..insure to wipe up any spillage also jiggle door as they can air lock while filling

Im really not all that familiar with the bosch unit, but a few things i would ck. when you cancel a cycle (it should drain the water) is it humming??? does it sound as if it even trickling into the sink discharge?? do you have a disposer under your sink that this unit drains into, if so remove the clamp and look for possible obstructions right there.Honestly passed this ill have to defer to someone else sorry and good luck

Hello Lynne, welcome to fixya.
I know what the problem is, though you may not like it. I would still start by checking your water inlet temperature, the unit must be connected to a "hot" water supply line. Try running the hot water at your sink tap to insure the cold water is out of the lines just before you turn on the dishwasher.
That is just a suggestion out of courtesy however...
If it is what I suspect, the control, this won't make any difference but it's worth a try. If on the other hand the water is good and hot entering the machine, you likely have an issue with the control as I alluded to.
The reason your dishwasher is displaying a "1" is the control has detected a heating error. It isn't the countdown time. The error code is displayed by the number "1". Here`s the most likely reason why it has detected the error...
Even if your home water supply appears hot, it's not hot enough and must be heated by the dishwasher to insure a proper clean and dry.
The issue with your Bosch dishwasher likely lye`s within`the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). This is why it runs forever unless pressing the two buttons for "cancel".
To repair your unit It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. This will be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sit`s at "1" ( because it can`t heat to advance or until canceled ) trying to heat the water.
**Further to this, if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)**
**Please disconnect the power before attempting any service to the dishwasher. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau, to service your machine.**
Hope this answer`s your question's, let me know if I can assist you further. Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiries. Please take a moment and rate this solution to it's helpfulness to you and leave a testimony if you're satisfied.

There is a rinse aid dispenser on the door.
Buy some from your local supermarket, open the dispenser and fill it. Close the lid and the light should disappear.
