Having problems with your Bosch SHE5AL06UC 24 in Builtin Dishwasher ?

I have a bosch she5al06uc/05 and it seems to run for a long period of time. I end up manually shutting it down. It doesn't make any sound indicating that the cycle is done and I have tried resetting it to the default settings with no success. I'm not sure wat exactly is suppose to be flashing wen in the control panel either. any help would be appreciated.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description I'd say the issue is with the control...unfortunately.
\015\012 \015\012Bosch has had a history of this exact problem I'm about to lay out for you and this is the first thing I'd be looking for if called out to service the unit with the symptoms you've described.

**B/S/H/ also issued a recall on certain models between 1999 - 2006 depending on the serial number, however it did not apply to your model.** Here's the link so you can see for yourself.

http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/

Those not affected by the recall still can be a problem but easily fixed. As I've alluded to the issue is likely within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable, the test below will help narrow down the culprit ).

My first suggestion would be calling in an authorized bosch service tech. if that is an option for you and your budget however, If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself.

It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board.

The culprit will 99% of the times be one of the pins from the heater relay,

**Flip this over and inspect the solder joints, it will be obvious when you see it...the cover for your models control comes apart in a similar manner**

This is where and what to look for, except I`ve re-soldered this one already...

...hence the unit sit`s and takes longer
& longer to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed, other-times it will eventually stop or display "1".


You can also run the unit through a regular or econo cycle ...any cycle with the exception of rinse & hold, and with the door panel removed place an ammeter on the gray/black wire it should draw 11 amps during the wash cycle...after it fills and the flow switch indicates it has adequate water to engage the heater.

i.e.

**My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...or it will not last, although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control ( @ approx. $150 - $250USD...$167.99 at "searspartsdirect.com" ) and I don`t pretend to speak on their behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)**

**Please disconnect the power or turn off the breaker before attempting any service to the dishwasher.**


If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau/Siemens, to service your machine.

Hope this answer`s your question, let me know if I can assist you further.

I have an SDMO generating set with a Mitsubishi S3 L2SD engine it is supposed to run at 1500 rpm but goes up and down depending on load, if I set the rpm at no load to 1500 as soon as a load is applied the revs drop and so do the cycles from 50 to perhaps 48, if I set the revs on load, then off load the revs go up and the cycles hit 53 plus which means for example my washing machine does not want to know, I suspect the govenor on the pump but do not want to change the pump if this is within para


Set the no load revs such that you get 51 Hz out of the generator, at 80% load this ought to give you something like 48.5 Hz with less than a 3% drop in output voltage. If not, you might have governor problems but I'd try servicing and adjusting it b ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

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!

I have a new Frigidaire FDB1050RE diswasher. I ran it for the first time set on normal wash and pressing both the Hi-temp wash and heat dry button. This cycle is supposed to take a total of 89 minutes to complete including the drying cycle. After 89 minutes it was still in the wash cycle so I cancelled it to preserve sanity. In the instruction manual it states that the water temperature must be above 120°F. Our building's water heating unit is set at 110°F. Why there is a lower temperature


It should still work pretty well but you probably can't use the high temp wash because it will take too long for the dishwasher to heat up the water enough to satisfy the high temp washer thermostat. If the thermostat's calibrated closing temperature ... Frigidaire Dishwashers
