Having problems with your Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher ?

When starting the dishwasher there is only a hum but nothing else happens


Answers :

The first thing a Bosch dishwasher does when you start a program is run the waste pump. This ensures that any residual water and waste is removed from the machine before the wash program begins.
\015\012
\015\012The hum you can hear is most likely the pump motor trying to drive the impeller. This can become clogged with waste and seize up, preventing the wash cycle from starting. There is an easy way to check this:
\015\012
\015\012(It's easier to do this with the washer empty)
\015\012
\015\0121: Select a wash program
\015\012
\015\0122. Press "Start" and wait for the humming noise
\015\012
\015\0123. Open the door and pull the bottom basket forward or lift it out completely
\015\012
\015\0124. Find and lift the float (the plastic dome/mushroom in the bottom of the washer) all the way up
\015\012
\015\0125. Keep the float lifted and the dishwasher should pump out. Stop if/when you hear a gurgling noise as this means it's empty and pumping mostly air.
\015\012
\015\0126. If the pump doesn't start, lift the float again for about 1-2 seconds then let it drop again for 1-2 seconds. Repeat this 10-20 times and see if the pump starts. The repeated stop/start signals to the pump motor can sometimes free a seized impeller.
\015\012
\015\012If the pump does start, keep lifting and dropping the float switch (1-2 seconds each time) to see if the pump starts every time. If it does, you should be OK to use the washer, but further action is needed to stop the problem returning.
\015\012
\015\012When you've done all this, post the results here and I'll advise you what to do to fix the problem or prevent it from returning.

Have a Kenmore dishwasher (Model 665.16039401) which is six years old. I has been much noisier lately and now it fills at the start of the cycle, but only has a humming sound. Nothing else happens.

Maytag MDBTT79AWW dishwasher fills and nothing else. Once filled you hear a click, followed by a humming sound for 3-5 seconds, then silence. This will happen two or three more times, and then unit will shut off. Motor doesn't start. Repairman says he thinks control board is bad, but he sounds like he is guessing. I performed a field service test , which indicated a fault in the high current motor circuit. Unit is seven years old. Don't know whether to attempt repair, or replace.


That sounds like the motor trying to start but being jammed it is shutting off via an internal breaker. Check for something in the bootom of dishwasher that might have gotten down there that could do this. You might have to take the sprayer off and s ... Dishwashers

When i turn my Viking dishwasher on the motor starts to run but no water comes out. It was humming along for several hours before i realized that nothing was really happening.

Hobart lx18h Our commercial Hobart dishwaser stops working after running a few cycles. After pressing start the LED display will continually blink and nothing will happen. We'll turn it off and on again a few times to reset it and it will start up again eventually. We've had an appliance guy look at it multiple times. He's replaced a part or two for it but the problem continues and he isn't much help. Anyone else had any similar issues with this model of dishwasher?

Stopped Working Hi, My Zanussi Aquapulse Dishwasher (DE6744S)has just stopped working. The red on/off switch still lights up when I try to start off a wash but nothing else happens. I know this is probably just a case of "call out a repair guy" but, even though I've had the machine a few years, I'm I bit miffed on the thought of coughing-up to have the thing repaired because I very rarely use it. Any suggestions? Many thanks

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher, SS, model # KUDIO1ILBL6. When you press the ''normal'' button to run it, nothing happens. Tried other cycles and same thing, the green light goes on above the cycle but its just not starting. I tried resetting by opening, pressing high temp scrub then energy saver dry, high temp scrub, energy save dry, then close and hit cancel. Is there any other combo to reset it? or does it sound like something else is wrong? thanks!

My KitchenAid dishwasher model # kudp01ilbl2 won't start. It is the first time we're trying to start it since we had our water heater replaced (three, maybe four days ago). Not sure how much that may matter. I tried turning off electricity to the dishwasher at the fusebox (overnight), but that did nothing. Normally, you just need to hit the start button and the washing begins. Now, nothing happens. The dishwasher is about six years old.

I have just moved into a new house with an Asko Dishwasher. It is not working. I program it, the icon for the cycle I have chosen lights up in red, I press start, that lights up in red, the water runs in for about 30 seconds and then nothing more happens. This happens on every wash cycle that I attempt to use. It does not appear to be on time delay as that icon does not light up. Also I have left it for a number of hours after I have tried to start it and still nothing happens. I would appreciat

I turned on the dishwasher tonight and noticed nothing was happening, but I was getting a clicking sound. I moved the dial back to off and started over. Some water went in, but then nothing happened again. I clicked forward one click at a time. Sometimes water came in. THEN WATER STARTED LEAKING OUT. I clicked back to off. After water stopped leaking, I opened the door. There is still water in the bottom. What do I do???
