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

The water is not draining from machine, although the pump is obviously trying. It doesn't sound quite right. Kind of a growling noise. It can pump water into tubs when experimenting with ideas, but can't pump hard enough to pump the water into the sink. This is all done with the hose removed so we could check for debris in the line. I've checked the filters and they are clean and clear. This is a used machine a friend gave me, and it's been working beautifully until now.

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..

My G832SC is not draining at the end of the cycle. It runs the entire cycle, and the dishes appear to be clean. The soap dispenser has opened and the dishes are rinsed. However, the dry cycle doesn't run because the machine doesn't drain at the end. The intake/drain light is flashing. If I reset the machine and start a new cycle, it will perform an initial drain and the water level does go down. We checked the tri-filter and the valve pump thing, rinsed both. Checked the hose under the sink. We

Ran the dishwasher and the water didn't drain completely. Checked the drain line for clog - it was clear. Scooped out the remaining water (barely covered the flat wire mesh filter in bottonm of the machine) and cleaned off the canister mesh filter and carefully relocked the filtyer in place. Tried to run the machine last night. Soap tray opened but apparently no water cycled through the machine as all the soap was in the bottom of the machine. The heat never turned on to dry the dishes and

Hi, I have a De Dietrich dishwasher model VW8810U2/2 approx 12 years old. The water is not draining, I have checked the filter is not blocked and the drain hose is clear of any kinks etc. I'm guessing it could be the pump. Can you advise of the cost of repair please.

Hello, My Bosch she44c dishwasher is not evacuating the water from the machine. I checked the line and i can hear the motor trying to pump. I've tried to make sure the impeller was clean, so at this point i don't know what it could be. It has had the circuit board replaced due to recall.

We have a IKEA Whirlpool DWF 407 dishwasher that suddenly stopped pumping in water. It's just stuck in a loop where it sounds like the water pump is dryheaving and soon after it starts smelling a bit burnt and smells a bit like a battery. I've checked the overflooding breaker and there's no water down there and I can hear the switch turning on if I move the floater upwards. Also checked so that the water hose up on top of the machine is securely fixed. Any ideas?

My Bosch dishwasher SGS46E26GB/90 makes a knocking noise when started. the timer does not advance and the check water light comes on.There is water in the bottom (up to the bottom of the door) . If I reset the DW the water drains ok. If I mess with the buttons E3 shows on the display the 'quick' light stays on and the eco light flashes. I've checked the filter where the water hose is fastens to the rear. I've cleaned the filters at the bottom of the DW and cleaned out the pump area under them.

Hi, I have a Miele dishwasher G2150 that after 7-10 minutes on any cycle the rinse, dry, and end lights flash amber. I called the 800 number and they walked me through the diagnostic sequence and they said it was an error code 12 something to do with water restriction. I removed and checked the bottom "L" filter(clean), the wheel (moves freely, not dirty), and the grey in line filter screen on the intake hose,( clean also).

Low Pressure with no hose attached, pressure is good, attach hose without wand and pressure drops 50%. Have had pump apart 10 times, have checked bypass valve, have even removed bypass and filled passage way so water could not bypass wihout any change. Am down to thinking pump casting is cracked allowing bypassing to happen. Does each of the three piston chambers have a check valve so one piston is not pumping back into another piston chamber?

Hi my L G dish washer is coming up with E1 . It comes on after about 2 min it takes water into the washer then it hummes for about 30 seconds then comes up with E1 and pumps water back out. I have checked the hoses which don't appear to be leaking -I read somewhere in your answers about this problem that it could be the Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray
