I have a 13 month old Bosch SHE58c dishwasher. The pump runs constantly and will not refill the tank. There are no error codes thrown on the control panel, but not sure there are error codes for this model - the manual doesn't mention any. So I have removed the side panel and can see the bottom pan is bone dry and I made sure the overflow drain switch was not bound and operates freely. Is there some type of reset button or other task I can perform to continue troubleshooting this problem? Repair


I have exactly the same problem. Turn on the machine and it just pumps and pumps, door controls do nothing. According to the technician who came and looked at it the problem is a bad control board. He ordered the part and we are waiting on it. ... Bosch Evolution 800 SHE58C05UC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

My 5-year old Bosch dishwasher leaves a somewhat fine grit on dishes? especially obvious on the inside of glasses. I use only Cascade detergent, use a rinse aid, don't overfill the machine, and always make sure that the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher is clean. I also make sure that the spinner is able to move freely. But, after all of that, I sometimes get very clean dishes; even more often, not. I see no rhyme or reason. I am presently looking at an entire load that has gone through


I have the same problem with mine!! It's 6 years old, and I'm running loads of dishes through twice. Even that doesn't help! And I rinse the dishes too, so I have no idea where all these "crumbs" are coming from. Will check back for updates. Hope to ... Bosch 24 in. SHU6802UC / SHU6806UC Built-in Dishwasher

My maytag quiet series fills with water and then starts for 5 seconds then stops. This happens 4 times and then the entire system just stops. To help troubleshoot I used a screw driver to trigger the closed door so that I could leave the door open when the cycle starts and the pumps seems to be working and water sprays all over the place. I also took apart the impellar blade to make sure there was nothing jammed and everything is clean. Maytag MDB7500AWW

Hi, I have a Miele G638 Plus dishwasher and the Red Inlet/Drain light comes on shortly after the wash cycle starts. I have cleaned everything out and the impellor moves freely. I have also made sure the outlet is clear. I have tried resetting and repeating on different washing cycles but it always locks out after the washing cycle starts. Could this be a heater problem as the element looks quite corroded? I have had side panels off and the water appears to flow easily through the sid

I have a Whirlpool DUL300XTLQ3 Queit Partner III. The cleaning blades stopped moving-started it-waited awhile-opened it-the blades were in the same position. Took the bottom blade+filter cover off. Then I held down the metal piece on the case and switched on the micro switch on the door to see it running with the door open. The water shot straight up about 4-5" that's it. This does not seem to be enough pressure for the water to get all the way up to the top spinner. Am I looking at a new pump


If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. Thiscould be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (locatedunder the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at thebottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

Dishwasher fault had leak,when opened bottom plate, could not see any obvious leak problem,hand dryed what componets i could. made sure no wires were loose then screwd back bottom plate,turn power back on but power button flashing continuously know,any advice plz


The flashing power button is a bad sign. You may have flooded the circuit board out or there may be a bad component as a result of the flood. Difficult to know from here.\015\012\015\012Most flooding on dish washers is caused by a faile ... Dishwashers

I removed an old dishwasher and replaced it with this GE 24" Profile GSD533ODO1WW unit. It seems to run through the cycles like it should but it doesn't seem to run any water for some reason. I hooked up a new water line to it and turned it on. There where no leaks that I could see. Is there any installation manual that you could send me to make sure that I didn't miss anything or is there anything that you can tell me that I should look for? Thanks, Jesse

Our bosch dishwasher runs but no water is spraying on the inside. Is there a water filter clean out or is there a water pump that might be broken? I checked the line coming in and it isn't plugged. I made sure where the stainless line goes into the electric valve that it wasn't plugged to that point. I could see anywhere else to check if it was plugged. I figure there has to be a water pump, but I guess I'm not sure of that either. Thanks for any help..


Hi, welcome to Fixya. \015\012 \015\012By the description you've provided, it sound's like the wash motor is either seized or just stuck, let's hope it's the later. \015\012 \015\012Bosch had issued a service tip about this ... Bosch 24 in. SHE43C05UC Stainless Steel Free-Standing Dishwasher

Frigidaire dishwasher (Electrolux FDB750RCB0) does not move water through the hose to the upper wash/spray bar. The lower wash/spray bar has pressure enough to turn. With the dish washer out from under the counter I can see the water rise very slowly up the translucent hose. If I remove the check ball under the stem assembly in the motor in the bottom of the tub, water flows, but I'm not sure if the top bar turns then (with the door open I see water coming down from the top, but never saw

BOSCH SHE43 Dishwasher My Bosch D/W makes a loud high-pitched squealing sound at the beginning of the cycle and for a few seconds intermittently while running. I have checked and cleaned the filter, made sure there are no obstructions in the bottom and I am stumped. I have only had it a little over 2 years, spent a small fortune on it and really hope it isn't something super expensive. Does anyone have an idea of what the problem could be?


Hello,\015\012\015\012Welcome to FixYa.\015\012\015\012Based on your description...as soon as you said "loud high-pitched squealing sound"...is where I knew what you`re talking about.\015\012\01 ... Bosch 24 in. SHE44C02UC / SHE44C06UC / SHE44C07UC Built-in Dishwasher

Start button pressed - Water loads and "Wash Cycle" lights are on but does not start wash. If "stop/reset" is pressed then all water is properly drained. Tried different wash cycles like "Speed Wash", etc and same problem persists. Have checked interior to make sure no blockage and that washer arm moves freely.

Noisey maytag We have a maytag quiet series 300 with the 3 racks. Just recently we have been hearing alot of noise from our dishwasher while it is in the washing and rinsing mode. We have checked the arms to make sure they are moving but doesn't seem to be a problem. Thought maybe there is a liquid that we could pour into the washer to run through it's cycle? Of course we know nothing about the inter works of a dishwasher.

My dishwasher is not working properly, i have cleaned all the filters and spray arms, but still have food partials all over dishes. I did use a knife to hold down door latch so i could see what was happening when the dishwasher is working. Water does come out of the spray arms but they don't move and the dishwasher is empty, also now the latch won't catch since i used the knife.


Make sure the water temp is not too low. Make sure the pump is not clogged up with debris Check that hoses and spray arms are all clear. Remove spray arms and clean the holes in them.

My Miele Platnum dishwasher is not working. It is flashing "intake/drain" When it begins instead of the normal hearing of water moving around you just hear a humming. My husband and father took out all the filters/baskets etc and made sure everything was cleaned out. They checked the hoses. After that it seemed like it was going to work because it started to cycle normally but now it is flashing again and this time there was water standing in the bottom of the dishwasher. Any thoughts?


Most common faults with dishwashers is a drain fault. Check for any kinked hoses and check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drille ... Miele 23 in. Novotronic G841 Built-In Dishwasher

Door leak I have a small leak between the bottom of the dishwasher door the lower service panel on the dishwashere. I did replace the seal on the inside bottom of the door along with the other parts that come with the door seal. Could there be a gasket leak around the detergent dispenser or the vent at the top of the inside of the door. I did not check the water lever as was mentioned in a previous question on water level, but the float does move up and down quite freely. Any suggestions as to w

Hello Cliff, The first thing which comes to mind when I read your post is 1) your on the right trac, and 2) this is a very common occurance with B/S/H ( Bosch, Thermador, Gaggenau ) manufactured dishwashers, a failed solder on the control board, spec ... Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher is 2 years old. Top shelf dishes not getting clean even on on heavy duty and sani rinse cycle. All arms move freely,tried the 2 cups white vinegar in an open container and run cycle. I thought that helped but a few days later we are back to the same thing. No debris around drains. Tried loading differently. I have called for a repair person,but is there anything else I could check on my own?


Sometimes the holes in the arms get blocked up,sweetcorn,rice etc, this then stops the arm spinning and water being sprayed onto plates etc, unscrew it and run water through the centre hole and see what happens. ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

I have a JDB1090AWS about 3 years old. We noticed a smell and found cutting boards and plastic cups melted. Machine was off. Had to turn off the breaker. Checked both leads to element & have power even with machine off. Not sure if it could be the limiting thermostat; I assume that is to shut the heat down when it gets too hot. Element is on though when it shouldn't be to begin with. I did have to tighten the water supply. Had some water underneath, but all wires seemed dry. Any tests I should t

Bosch Dishwasher I have a stainless steel Bosch dishwasher, I made the "mistake" to try to see if I could fix the jammed handle from the door. Unfortunately, (did not realize the top panel comes off without opening the entire door). I removed the screws from the door frame (Inside panel), and the door springs/latched got loose. I would like to put it back together, but I dont have any diagrams on the door to make sure all parts are in place to put the door back together. I have been havin


Hi ED,\015\012\015\012It sounds like a real problem here. If the springs are still in one piece, my best guess is to to remove the springs from the door.

Hi there, Just moved in to a new place and loaded up this dishwasher. First set it to "normal wash", dry "off", "start". Made noises but after a couple of minutes I heard no water and think I smelled the beginning of something overheating. Think I checked to see if the water was turned on under the sink (turned all the way to the right?). Still nothing but noise. What do you think? Lorraine


Lorraine.. It sounds like the water valve under the washer is stuck or maybe partially shorted. It is a solenoid coil activated shut off valve. The coil may be overheating, and valve not opening.. so motor is running dry. \012If you want to ta ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher
