Hi,

Some SHX46 washers have 4 wash cycle buttons and others have 5. The button on the left side on top of the door is the start/stop button regardless of how many wash cycle buttons you have.


If you have 5 cycle buttons, reading from left to right they will be as follows.

1. Top Rack Only / Sanitize
2. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
3. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
4. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
5. Rinse & Hold.

These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down buttons 2 and 4 (Power Scrub Plus and Delicate) at the same time to cancel a wash cycle and drain the water out.

If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration - from left to right - will be:

1. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
2. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
3. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
4. Rinse & Hold.

With this button configuration, the cancel cycle buttons are 1 and 3.


I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.

Regards,
BElectric

Bosch dishwasher I have a shx36l06uc and my front door lettering got erase. Anyone have a picture or a manual that tells me what each button means

Try going to a lot of new and used appliance stores and copying one like yours, or look at peoples dishwashers when you visit their house and copy their lettering.
God bless your efforts.

My problem is. The start button is blinking and doesn't start to wash, is just blinking. can you help?

Have you checked to see if you've mistakenly locked it? On mine, if I hold pressure on the start button for 3 - 5 seconds, it locks the control panel. It unlocks the same way.

Let us know it this solves your problem.

Replace cover on Bosch Dish washer> Now a C6 code is displayed in the window

I had the same problem after replacing the white panel on my Bosch SHE45M02UC with a stainless panel. I got the C6 error code. I called Bosch customer service twice and neither rep was helpful. One guy told me he didn't know what the C6 code meant. He suggested that I call a local appliance repair guy and he would know what the code meant. I replied, you mean to tell me you work for the manufacturer of the dishwasher and don't know what the error code stands for but a local repair guy that doesn't work for Bosch does?

After all this frustration, I took the panels off and tested the dishwasher with no buttons. It worked fine! Turns out, each identical button isn't identical. Each one is labeled A-G. After putting it back together, no more C6 code! On a side note, try reseting the dishwasher. With the dishwasher on and door closed, hold down the cancel/reset buttons for 5 seconds and release. The disher should drain and reset.

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher and it is locked and I don't know how to unlock it

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher & locked mine by pushing the "Air Dry" button for about 5 seconds. To unlock it, I pushed it in again another 5 seconds and the unlock light went out & it worked fine. Whatever button you locked it with originally (if you know), should unlock it when held in again.

Kenmore elite dishwasher not running

I had the same problem with mine. The whole circuit board, buttons and all, need replacement. If you look online, you can find this part for a bit over 100 dollars. Definetely worth it over paying 5 bills for a new one.Simple to install too, just turn off power at breaker.

Whirlpool 24 in. DU1055XTP Built-in Dishwasher

I don't know if your dishwasher is the same as mine, but this solution may be what you need. For electronic panel dishwashers made by whirlpool (mine is a whirlpool but with a kenmore name on it), some of them can be reset by pushing in sequence the Heated-Dry button followed by the Normal-Wash button, several times in a row. that is... Push Heated-Dry, then Normal-Wash, Then Heated-Dry, then Normal-Wash... Repeat until all lights light up. When all lights light up you can stop. The washer will then take 5-10 minutes to go through a diagnostics cycle, which is about 18-25 steps or so. You can bypass one step at a time by pushing the STart button. This may not apply to your washer, but is pure gold if it does. Good Luck!
