Having problems with your Bosch 24 in. SMU40 Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have a Bosch SMU2046UC/14 dishwasher that makes some noise but will not start the wash cycle. I found that the noise was from the timer motor by removing the front of the door. The timer continues to run and but only advances until half way through the wash cycle where it stops permanently. Is this a problem with the timer or could something else be causing this problem.

HI. The timer motor mechanism regulates the length of time power is to be routed to each component. If the timer motor does not advance properly, it can result in a wide range of problems. Common symptoms will usually include sticking in a cycle(failing to advance), cycle times may run too long, or failure of the dishwasher unit to function or power up. Your symptoms greatly indicate that the timer unit is malfunctioning in this particular unit. The necessary actions are to replace the timer, asap.

You can actual test this device if you wish. Follow the procedure below to confirm:

Once you have gained access to the part, you will notice that there are two motors. The smaller one is the rapid advance motor which operates when the wash cycle is canceled or reset. You do not need to test this one, but if you are having problems differentiating from the two, test them both. The "large" round motor housing has two wires extending from it. Follow the wires to the terminal connections. Now; Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Next; Set your multimeter to the ohms setting X1000. Touch one probe to each wire. A reading in the range of 2,000 to 3,500 ohms is normal for most dishwasher timer motors. If a schematic of your dishwasher can be located, it should indicate the proper resistance for your timer motor. The schematic may be in one of the service areas of your dishwasher or your owner's manual or inside your units door panel.. If your measurement varies substantially from normal range, the timer should be replaced.

  • NOTE_ This test is really not necessary in your case, due to the overwhelming symptoms you have stated in your post. It is quite safe to replace this damaged timer, if you wish. It is indeed damaged.

I have a Bosch dishwasher, M# SHU3035UC/U12. After the cycle is finished, the water is still on bottom of machine, it doesn't pump it out, so I changed the pump. Now when it washes, it fills and washes, when the timer advances it dies, there is no noise and nothing happens, the only way that I get the machine to pump water is by lifting the red overflow lever. Only then does it pump out the water. what can be my problem?

Dishwasher runs for appx 14 min & stops washing half way thru wash cycle. Timer contunies to run. No drain pump out (nothing). Let dishwasher set idle for appx 1 hour and it will re-set.

When I start the dishwasher, it sounds normal. A few minutes after it starts, it makes a loud, thumping noise that lasts for several minutes. After a while, it stops making noise, but about half way through the cycle, it starts making the loud, thumping noise again. It's loud, annoying, and does not get our dishes clean. We have to wash several dishes by hand AFTER we have run the dishwasher.

We have a +11 year old Bosch SHU3006/UC/U06 that never leaves the wash cycle. We had to stop it during our last test run at 3 hours.

We checked and noticed that the water in the machine was only around 90 degrees during a wash cycle. We do not have exploded views or parts drawings, nor electrical schematics. I wou

Hello, my Hoover D7610 dishwasher has developed a problem, I would appreciate your advice.On starting a wash it appears to be working OK through what I believe to be a rinse cycle but then after about 20 minutes water pours out from the bottom of the door. Manually clicking the timer-programer forward stops the leaking but the machine needs manual advancement except for the last 2 cycles when the timer seems to work OK. After the 1st cycle there is no more water leaking from the machine but all

After the wash has been completed, when I open the door, the bottom of the dishwasher is full of water. It does not spill out, but the only way to empty it is to use a bowl and manually remove it. There is no apparent waste blocking the exit nor any object. Do you know what the problem could be? Many thanks in advance!!! Ms Eribenne

Our GE dishwasher (5 yrs old, Model GLD4250L00CS) only fills with water half way when the unit is started. The inlet valve was replaced with a new one, but that did not solve the problem. When started, the dishwasher fill cycle runs for 41 seconds before the wash cycle begins. Repair workers told us we probably need a new ECU (Electronic Computer Unit). My questions are: Is 41 seconds the correct time for the fill cycle for our model? What else could be the reason for the unit not filling pr

I have an Asko w66 front load washing machine that will only wash one way with a 60 second time delay and washes the same way again instead of reversing. At no time will it wash the other way. At the first spin cycle the water is pumped out but the wash drum will not spin. The pump continues to pump and will not stop while the one way wash continues. The timer stops at this point with the one way wash and pump still pumping continuously.
