Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a Bosch SHU53513UC/U12 dishwasher. My initial problem is that the washer smells bad after a cycle and I've noticed some water sitting in the bottom of the unit. After running a diagnostic test, it results in a "2" heating fault. I followed your advice and used a current coil to and attached it to the GYBK-a1-3 hot wire on the control board. After running the test again, it only gets as high as 1.15A and manual says it should reach 11A. What should I do next?

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description
I'd say the issue actually with the control...unfortunately. The "2" being displayed in the test is actually an error code associated with a heating fault ( probably the relay solder on the control )


**B/S/H/ also issued a recall on certain models between 1999 - 2006 depending on the model & serial number, you can check with yours since some of the SHU53 series was included for, though it still suffers from the same problem...you'll need the serial number too. Here`s the link if you want to see for yourself **

http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/


As I've alluded to the issue is likely 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 ).

If you feel capable of checking this on your own, ( sounds like you've got a handle on it ) there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself...it really isn't very complicated.

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.

The culprit will 99% of the times be one of the pins from the heater relay,

**Flip this over and inspect the solder joints, it will be obvious when you see it.**

This ones new, but it's where to look...

...hence the unit sit`s and takes longer & longer to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed...or takes a long time as I mentioned and eventually display's "1" on units with a display and usually very poor cleaning as a result.

**My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...or it will not last, 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 or turn off the breaker 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/Siemens, to service your machine.

Hope this answer`s your question, let me know if I can assist you further. To add to this, if you want to post your email address I can send you a Bosch service manual.

I have had a repairman come out and look at this and he says all the diagnostic test say everything is okay. My problem: my dishes come out dripping wet...like it hasnt dried anything. Sometimes dishes are still dirty. I don't think there is any heat getting to anything. I run the water in the sink beforehand to try to get the water hot. I used this dishwasher for 1-1/2 years with no problems and now I have this problem. What is going on?

Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher model number 665.1374 or 665.1384 I am a technician. This unit does nothing. It has power and ground. I have tested the door switches. They test good. If I unplug the unit and plug it back in then it will run a drain cycle, at least that is what I think it is doing. The motor runs for about 4 minutes. Once it shuts off, there is no further response. No control indicators illuminate. No response from pushing any of the touch buttons.

Maytag dishwasher model MDB7609AWW2 has a blinking clean light. I followed the advice on fixya (thankya!) and by alternating the normal and heated wash buttons I was able to return the lights to normal. However, once I tried to run a normal cycle, it didn't do anything other than fill and drain. I then ran the hot water faucet in the sink until hot and tried another new cycle, but no luck. Any advice is MUCH appreciated!

The water is pumped out after the rinse cycle then it continues to run and make an unusual noise but nothing happens. The noise is almost a grinding sound. There is also a smell like some part may be hot or the wiring may be hot. I can reset the dishwasher and re-run the cycle up until that same point and it does the same thing again. I have had a repairman out twice in the last six months. The first time he could find nothing wrong because the problem was intermittent and he couldn't see anythi

My power button cover broke on the dishwasher and I figured out the part number I needed, but when I put it back together I got the wires crossed on the board and door switch. Now the control lights up , but the dishwasher will not run a cycle. THe question is does the plug on the door switch have to be a certain way, because there are three wires and you can connect the plug both ways. I did turn the plug, but it still does not run. Did I break the switch? Bosch SHU9956uc/14


The wires do have to be a certain way on the door. Otherwise a door open can tell the board that's it shut and vice versa. The easiest way to do it, is test the switch with an ohmmeter, place the meter on the switch, push button in and see if the rea ... Bosch SHU9956 Built-in Dishwasher

Our GE model GSD4320Z00B is having a problem with the drain system. I've run the unit in the test mode and it does pump the dishwasher down. The problem is the unit does NOT pump down during a normal wash cycle. The fact that the unit works in test tells me it is not the pump. I've checked all the hoses and drain paths and there are no obstructions, again verified by the fact it works in test mode. Any test that can be used to determine the problem besides replacing parts one by one?

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

Maytag DWU6402AAB dishwasher hums but motor does not run. I've taken the inside apart down to the disk-shaped impeller. It turns freely so the pump and motor are not stuck. When control knob is turned motor hums at the places where it normally should run. The water valve & heating coil seem to be operationg normally. i assume the next step is to test the motor &/or motor relay. Is this correct and how do I do that?

My 2008 frigidaire 24" dishwasher model #FDB1050REC is not washing during the cycle. I have run the test cycle and the tub is filling up and draining but no washing is taking place during the wash cycle. The dishwasher has an electronic control board and therfore no mechanical timer. I put test leads to check for voltage on the power leads to the main washing pump, which I have already replaced with a new one, and I'm only registering a low voltage of around 10 or 11 VAC.

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".
