Having problems with your Bosch Dishwashers ?

Why does drain motor start when pushing the start button on the door before the door is closed?

\015 Just cleaned the drain, then filled with some water and drain motor seemed to work ok after starting machine. But when pushing the start button nothing is supposed to happen until the door is closed. Now I hear the drain motor as soon as the start button is pushed and water is never introduced into the dishwasher to begin the wash cycle.\015

Answers :

It's almost certainly the float switch in the bottom of the machine. In the bottom is a polystyrene 'float' that is either active due to water in the bottom or is faulty. Tip your machine to the side and remove water and try again, bridge or replace switch is also an option

When I press the start button, Bosch dishwasher (model SHY56A 05UC) just keep running the motor pumping the water out of dishwasher, irrespective of: 1) the wash cycle it is on, 2) whether the door is closed or open, 3) whether I cancel drain cycle, as told by Bosch Cust Svc in following steps: - "Cancel Drain" by pressing 'Quick Wash' and 'Regular Wash' buttons together for a minute until it shows 0* - Shut power off for a minute and wait for a minute - Restart on Quick Cycle.

My Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050RES2 gets stuck in a rinse cycle. The light on the front will be lit "clean" but the bottom of the washer is full of water. Opening the door does not turn off the "clean" light. For me to get it to run, I have to unplug it, plug it back in, push the start button until the ?washing? light comes on. I then push the start button once more and the dishwasher will begin to drain. I open the door as soon as I hear the water stop draining into the sink drain. This

I have a KitchenAid Model KUDP01FLBT5. After I push one of the clean buttons, and the start button and close it, nothing happens. The indicator lights for the buttons come on as you push them. When this first started, you would ahve to open and close the door and re-set the buttons (not sure if that button re-setting had anything to do with it) up to 20 or 30 times, and it would eventually come on. Now it won't anymore. Help!

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.


If you found broken glass inside the machine some has likely migrated to the pump. about the only way to fix that issue is to remove the pump and either replace it or disassemble it and clean it out. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01FL Built-in Dishwasher

Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button. There was still water in the bottom but the dishes were basicly finished. Now I can not seem to get the dishwasher to come back on. The lock button seems to be on and it usually is not on. The manual says to push and hold the button for 4 seconds to turn it off. I did that. But now it is flashing between the Heate

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

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #17519200. I loaded it last night as usual and closed the door. I pressed the wash cycle I wanted and pressed the start button. I heard it starting to fill with water as usual. After it filled with water it should have gone into the wash cycle mode but it just started making a buzzing noise for about a minute or two then just stopped. I pressed cancel to drain it and it drains fine. I have kept trying to re-run it but it just does the same thing I described.

When it calls for a drain cycle it sounds like the motor tries to start for half a second and then the display blinks and there is a click. This repeats every few seconds until you open the door. If you wait 15 minutes and close the door it will click once and then drain fine; until the next drain cycle.

Cranky dishwasher I have to admit my wife's solution is the only one that works. Our ten-year-old Superba built-in usually starts a normal cycle part-way through, at the wash part, without filling or opening the dispenser door. Therefore the dishes come out with the soil now baked on. Closing the door, selecting normal and start results in a pump-out sound, or at least just the pump running to wash the dishes. The dishwasher ignores any cancel button push,and the light does not come on over t

For my Kudi01dl model dishwasher, the rinse light is on, but the unit will not respond to any buttons being pressed and won't turn on. When I press any buttons, two horizontal lines show in the front, but go off as soon as I let go of the button. Is there a ways to reset the unit? Everything was functioning fine the last time I used it. I use it about once a day. The problem started when I heard sounds coming from the unit, very loud motor sounds.
