Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.

    Hi Prince P,



    This dishwasher has the electronic timer and not the mechanical one. That's kind of why I'm leaning toward the latch mechanism, since it's got a microswitch in the circuitry. It's either that or the brain box and I'm hoping it's just the latch since it's not actually closing the way it used to.

    I have just encountered the EXACT same problem with the exact same model. Any ideas, anyone?



    Thanks

    Trip off the circut breaker to your dishwasher, or remove power plug and replace the latch switch and door gasket.this will solve the problem.

Bosch dishwasher model SHY56A05UC/14 door wont latch. It will run but of course water comes out as it is not locked.

That sounds more like a gasket problem then a lock problem. Check the rubber seal on the door for damage. Even a small imperfection in the seal can cause the door to leak even though the lock is engaged.

Or is it that the door just won't close at all? If that's the case, check the locking mechanism to see if there's anything jammed in there. If so, remove it and that may fix the problem.

Bosch dishwasher model shy56a05uc/14 door wont latch

I tried the various solutions on this site with no success. Finally I wedged it shut with a nice clear plastic door stop. Worked perfect (who cares if people think it looks funny, I am not hand washing and still am not out any extra dollars)

It stops in between washing the dishes and I have to push the door to run. I believe its loose contact. Can anybody throw some light how to fix this.

Check the door latch mount - maybe the screws have come loose or the posts for the screws are broken. There is usually a microswitch that detects whether the door is properly latched; you don't want to defeat it unless you don't mind water all over the floor. It is possible the switch is out of adjustment, but make sure the latch is good first.

How do you check for error codes on a Bosch SHY56A05UC/23 Dishwasher? My dishwasher runs continuously in the drain mode and the "cancel drain" feature does not work.

what is happenig i believe and has happened to me 2 times is that the water level float that is on the left side of dishwasher is stuck.

Either remove side panel and flick lever or pull dishwasher out and tap lower portion of panel and this will cause the level to move and then see hat happens

KitchenAid KUDI10FL dishwasher- The door spring system broke and I repaired it, but now all of the sudden the dishwasher will not start. The door may have been dropped a couple of time before the spring...

Hi- It is possible that the door latch is not completely engaging. If the door dropped the hinges may have bent a little thus preventing a good contact with door switch. Try pressing and holding the door shut, hard, and pressing start. If that works then replace the latch assembly. It is also possible the membrane switch got rattled with the door falling, or a wire is grounding out somewhere. Hopefully it is just the latch. Hope this helps, good luck.

It's not easy. I just look at my sister-in-laws and I think the tub needs to come off. I plan on working on it this week.
