SHU 5316 UC dishwasher by bosch. I think it is from about 1998 or 99. It blew a circuit breaker yesterday. I reset the circuit braker, but it won't even power on. It may have burned something out. We replaced the control board 2 years ago. Please tell us: 1. Is it worth fixing again, or just replace? 2. Any suggestios? Maybe the pump has shorted? THANKS SO MUCH!! Mark


Hi Mark -There's no internal fuse in this dishwasher, so if there's no power you may well be looking at a new control unit and probably another major component as well, depending on what caused the overload or short. The most likely ... Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

Good Afternoon We have a Kleenmaid DW8 dishwasher. At the beginning of the cycle, it will pump out the water, sit idle for a short time and then show the end light, without washing or any further action. A technician came to visit and had a brief look. A follow up call came from his company stating that the circuit board had a crack in it. It would require a new circuit board ($650), the dishwasher to be taken to the workshop and repaired ($150). Upon further investigation, the circuit board had

I have a GE dishwasher model GLDL560N10SS. I noticed a burning smell coming from it the other day and then realized that although I can hear water running into the dishwasher when I start it, it never actually runs in the sense that the water is pushed through the various outlets to wash the dishes. I'm assuming that it is because the unit is dry and the heating element is still coming on that it is causing a burning smell. If I open the unit and reset it, it pumps the water back out into the si

Bci450 My dishwasher has been always giving me lots of trouble. It is the BCI450 model from hotpoint. Whenever it reaches the washing stage for steam, it seems to beep alot. Many times they replaced the Circuit board but this problem comes back after 2 months. What could be the reason this is caused? Today they replaced the rubber thinking that water vapour might be reaching the circuit. I got this repaired about 7 times already and each time they replaced the circuit board.

Dishwasher will not start when pressing the start button. Timer light flashed numbers and went off. None of the lights and buttons work. Circuit breaker in electrical panel is working. Does the on/off switch need replacing, or is it possible a mini circuit board is bad? Dishwasher installed in 2000 and is used on the average once per week.

I have an Asko 1585 dishwasher. It drops the inlet valve on step (step 12), and the recirculation pump (next step) tries to pump with no water. Later at about step 47, the inlet valve begins to work again and the dishwasher finishes the cycle without a problem. I have had the board checked, and all of the power supply and transfer circuits are good. That leaves the processor. Is there any combination of buttons to press which can completely reset the controller board?
