Having problems with your Bosch Dishwashers ?

My bosch excel dishwasher has the following fault: start the cycle, water starts to fill but then check water light comes on and it then starts to empty again. Pump then keeps going. I have checked the hose and even swapped it round with my washing machine one but this makes no difference. I have cleaned all the filters and taken off the cover to check the 'propeller' as sugested in the instruction manual. But no joy - check water light still illuminated and willnot continue with cycle. - Help!!

Any help would be apprieciated


I would suspect the control board in this type of behaviour. As the machine is new I advise no interference, but to open a claim under warranty. You would have all the warranty papers for this unit, or should have received them from your builder. The ... Dishwashers

Hello, Our kitchenaid DW has stopped working. Non of the buttons cause a any of the lights to turn on. Of course, it will not start. On its last working cycle, it had a very strange washing cycle. It almost sounds like the water was not splashing around (even though I opened it while it was working and noticed water at the bottom). I checked the circuit breaker, and it is not tripped. For a couple of weeks, the DW had started making a kind of metallic noise while in the washing cycle. Also,

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.

Hi our nemo dishwasher starts a cycle and fills but does not start cleaning cycle. Light under start button flashes. If start button is held on it resets and pumps out. We live in an area with high clacium in water. At first the machine only pumped out and did not start filling. I have cleaned the level sensor ( membrane switch filled with calcium) and it at least stopped pumping and started to fill. It does not proceed from here. I checked the level switch it seems to be working OK (NO and NC c

Maytag Model MDB7160AWW S/N 10337613WQ Symptons: Fills with water OK, shuts off water OK, does not start any cycle, or drain. After a power off/power on reset, problem remains. Flashes CLEAN & LIGHT WASH. My understanding is this is an error condition for low motor current, which makes sense as the motor never starts. I know both door switches are good (I checked them with a DVM) and both engage when the door is closed. Tripping the water float switch opens the valve and water fills the tub

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

I have a new FDB520RHS2A Frigidaire dishwasher which remains in the wash cycle after I've started it. It sounds as if it is changing cycles but the wash light stays lit and never switches to rinse. The machine continues to run for hours if I don't stop it. We've checked the drain to the garbage disposal and it is clear. the water temp seems to be hot enough but how do I check that? Any ideas on what we should check before we bring it back to the store? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!

I pressed the POWER button to turn on the dishwasher. I pressed the SELECT button, hit HEATED DRY button and the LIGHT WASH buttons. I then hit the START/PAUSE button to start the cycle. All lights came on as normal & I heard the machine trying to **** up water like it normally does. Within 5 minutes or so, the machine started to BEEP & BEEP every minute. When I came to the check why the beeping noise was on, I saw that all the WASH PROGRAM lights were all blinking. I hit the START/PAUSE

We've got an Meile Incognito dishwasher, model G 843 SCVi plus. It purges at the begining of the cycle and then seems to fill with water, but then the red Intake/Drain light starts to flash and the cycle goes no further. I've removed, checked, cleaned and replaced the triple filter and the drain pump but the light is still flashing. I spun the propeller both ways, no problem there. Any ideas for me?

I own a KUDS01FLSS3 KitchenAid dishwasher. The lights on the control panel do not come on and a cycle can not be started. There is about an inch of water in the bottom of the dishwasher basin and it looks like the previous cycle did not complete. I have checked the wall outlet that the washer is plugged into and the washer is receiving power from the wall. And ideas? My next thought was to take the door off and check the power supply running to the door panel and control panel.

Hello, I have a problem with our Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher. It starts its cycle OK, draining out any residual water, taking in fresh water and doing the initial rinse. After about 5 minutes it then stops with the "inlet/drain" red light flashing. The detergent is still in the holder and the water is still cold. The filter at the bottom of the compartment is clean, the drain pump spins freely. I've also checked for any leaks in the bottom of the machine that would trip the styrofoam/microsw

The clean light is the only light that will stay on. the other lights will go on, but they eventually go off without starting the cycle. Is this the thermal fuse???

GE PDW7300 dishwasher - must slam the door shut to get a light on the panel and when the START button is pressed, it looks like the dishwasher is cycling thru a wash, but there is no water. When I press the START cycle again, it seems like it thinks its pumping the water out for a few minutes, then the light will go off. If I start it again and push really hard against the door, I can hear the water go on. But if I stop pushing the door, the water stops. The dishwasher was installed in 2001, but

New dishwasher (Beko 2542F slimline model). Put it on for 1st time last night -when I got up this morning, the cycle which should have taken just over 2 hours hadn't finished. There's soapy water in the bottom of the machine which hasn't drained and the "wash" light is still on. Looks like the dishes are clean but hasn't moved onto the rinse/dry part. Followed instruction in manual to drain it (hold start stop button till lights flash and should drain in 45 sec) but nothing happened.

We have a Brandt Aa Class Dishwasher that will start and run the fill cycle for about a minute with the red operating light on but then stops and the red light goes out. I suspect it may be a timer related problem but can you tell me where the timer is on this model ? I have checked the filter and that the water supply and drain hoses are not kinked.
