Having problems with your Bosch Dishwashers ?

Running time of dishwasher

\015 I think our dishwasher cycle might be running too long. Can you tell me the correct running time?\015

Answers :

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012he cycles times are too long\015\012\015\012If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
\015\012\015\012\015\012Water pre-heating\015\012\015\012Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. 

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 

\015\012\015\012\015\012Cycle not completing\015\012\015\012See "The cycle doesn't complete" section. 

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012The cycle doesn't complete\015\012\015\012If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
\015\012\015\012\015\012Water-heating cycle\015\012\015\012Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

\015\012
    \015\012
  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.


  • \015\012
  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.


\015\012\015\012\015\012Timer\015\012\015\012Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

During the cleaning cycle the dishwasher will stop working. The dishwasher is silent. The timer will continue and the water will drain out at the appropriate time.

We have a kitchenaid dishwasher, kudi22ot3, installed in 1992. It is not cleaning dishes even thought the tub is getting water, and we've run dishwasher magic through it a couple of times. The dishes will get clean for a few runs, and then will stop getting clean. Is it time for a new dishwasher or can this one be fixed? Thank you.

I have the E3 error on my Smeg DWI614 dishwasher which would indicate a heater error, however it is heating the water in the bottom of the machine but it seems to time out. The main issue seems to be that the recirc. pump is not running during the heating phase. I have taken the pump out, checked the connections etc. twice now and everything seems fine (the motor runs when tested). When I have done this (both times) the dishwasher has started again and run for 20+ cycles fine, then the issue com

Dishwasher Dilema Hi, Can someone help me solve this problem. Last time I had a problem with my dishwashers I was pretty successful in solving it on this site. I was running a reg wash on the top drawer of my Fisher&Paykel when I suddendly had to stop it in the middle of a wash to add more dishes (something I do all the time) suddenly both screens started beeping with an F1 along with a wrench. It sounds like both motors top and bottom are running full blast. I tried shutting the power for a few

I have a Bosch SHU5316UC dishwasher.

My dishwasher is SHU 3000 series and over 10 years old. The problem is SUDS that will not go away. I have used on-line methods such as vinegar. I have gone through 6 bottles of "Dishwasher Magic" and have put it through cycles not using soap over 30 times and am still getting suds even at the end of the rinse cycle. I have called a local repairman and he says he cannot help me..that I should continue running the dishwasher time after time till the water is w/o suds. Any help for me?

This problem is intermitten. Kenmore 665 16765690. starting the dishwasher, I hear a motor running. I think it is trying to empty water, however there isn't any water. I will turn the time rotor around to the start again. Sometimes, when I do this the motor running sound has stopped and I hear gurgling sound of water entering. Once this happens, the cycle is good and does well. However, there are times, rotation the timer back to the beginning may take several times, up to about 20 times.

My Professional series dishwasher does not work properly. It is only 1.5 years old and glasses on top rack get sprayed with fine layer of particles every time I use it. Other items, top and bottom, are often not clean as well, but glasses are the hardest to re-clean. I have tried evacuating the water left at the bottom of the dishwasher before running, pre-running the hot water in the sink and ensuring that the disposal was run, removing and cleaning the filter at the bottom of the washer.

Lately the soap remains in the dispenser, dried and caked in (I have to dig it out with a sharp object, as it becomes a solid piece). I have also tried gel soaps, but find them in the bottom of the dishwasher, partially intact. The mistery is this does not happen all the time, but most of the time! I've checked the water pressure and the water temperature: both seem to be fine. The dishwasher does run a full cycle. Is it time to buy a new one?

Just had a Bosch dishwasher installed in my new kitchen. The plumber who installed it ran it and it worked. Now we cannot get it to run. We have tried everything. Restarted several times, turned the circuit breaker off and on, changed the cycle and nothing works. The light comes on but it does not get water or run. What are we doing wrong. The dishwasher is brand new out of box but we bought it 4 years ago and remodeling was delayed.

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or

Our dishwasher won't start (model number 665.16049401). We had a similar problem last summer and a repairman came and fixed it. The problem was that the water level had gotten too low and so the machine locked itself off. This made sense as, at the time, I remembered filling the pool, running laundry and someone taking a shower all at the same time that I turned the dishwasher on. I am guessing this is the same thing that has happened now. The repairman put in a code and the machine worked. Can

Incomplete cycle My Miele dishwasher (3 to 4 years old) finishes, leaving the dishes dirty and wet. It seems that it may only be running through part of the cycle - I'm not sure but from the time I set it going to the time it switches off, it seems shorter than usual.

After starting the cycle, the dishwasher starts and runs normally for a short time, then the water drains out of the tub prematurely while the cycle is still going. The machine then runs dry until the cycle times out. At the next cycle and the process repeats. It started as a sporadic problem, but is getting worse.
