Having problems with your Bosch SHU9925UC Built-in Dishwasher ?

We have a Bosch SHU9925UC dishwasher, installed in 2002. In August 2010, the water didn't drain, and a service technician discovered melted wire nuts at the main incoming power junction, presumably due to a loose connection there. He re-wired it. Now it's March 2011 and yesterday we smelled electric fire smoke coming from the dishwahser, opened it up and again found melted wirenuts. So is it really just poor installation, given that now 2 different installers have created the same problem?

Kitchenaid (KUDM01TJWH0) Shortly aftter starting my kitchenaid (KUDM01tJWH0) dishwasher, smoke began coming out of the door. I opened the door and smelled a strong electrical smell. It is now completely dead. I drained the water out of the water line, thinking it might be plugged, but still nothing. What should my first move be to determine the cause? Breakers are fine. I think it is was purchased approximately 2001. Thank you!

My Maytag MDB9150AWS is no longer working due to what I believe is a electrical fire in the front control panel as there was smoke coming out of the top of the front panel. There were no flames but the smell took your breath away. We had to open the Kitchen windows and door for several hours to try to get rid of the smell, but you can still smell it by the dishwasher. This model is not part of the recall. Has anyone else had a similar problem with this model?


My dishwasher (same make and model) had a similar problem except I did see some sparks coming out from th front on the side of it (on Thanksgiving Day no less - a lot of manual diswahing followed). What the problem ultimatly was is what I believe to ... Dishwashers

Opened door and unit did not have electrical power (lights did not come on either unit). Called serviceman. He stated there was no electricity to unit(s). Called electrican. He stated wiring to the dishwasher had power. Called serviceman again. He came out and dishwasher worked. He did nothing to it. I opened the door and the lights(buttons) came on. Unit worked for a few days and this morning, there was again, no power to the unit. What is likely wrong with this dishwasher?

I heard an odd noise mid cycle and when I looked, smoke was coming out of the machine. I opened it up and it wouldnt shut off i threw the breaker to shut it off, opened it up and smoke was pouring out of the latch hole. Is this the control board and is it replaceable? At what cost? Is it worth repairing or should I just replace the whole unit?

A burning smell and steamy smoke come out when we open the door.

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on. I opened door, turned off On/Off switch, then poured water into drain. Then turned On/Off switch on. DW began pumping water OUT of the DW. Also, it doesn't matter if the door is open or closed - if you turn the DW on, the pump will run. I suspect a problem with the electrical controls, or perha

Whirlpool dishwasher part #3385181. Machine had gone thru wash cycle and was starting to dry. Smelled electrical burning smell, opened washer door and washer was filled with smoke. Turned everything off, cleared smoke, and the washer water dispenser is very hard to turn. Washer has symptoms of burnt up motor that turns water dispenser. Machine is 12 years old.

Dishwasher started smelling funny like electrical smoke. I opened up the top by the digital read out and noticed one of the wires was charred and had been smoking. worth it to call repairman? or buy a new one.


I would call a repairman or just cut out the bad spot in the wire and use a **** connector and splice in some new wire. Maybe a new connector because it may have been caused by a loose connection drawing heat due to arching. I doubt its a major issue ... Kenmore 24 in. 15079 Built-in Dishwasher

Then the smoke starting pouring out of it and it smelled like something electrical burning. I immediately turned the wall switch off. It is a Kenmore, not sure of the model at this time. Is this a common occurence like if a specific part went out? Thanks for your time.

My dishwasher begins its cycle with a whirring noise, what sounds like the powder drawer then clicks open, but after that nothing happens. The water does not come in. The dial clicks round a couple more points, the machine 'whirrs' again, but still no water/washing action. The machine then just stops/cuts out. Is this a plumbing problem or an electrical problem?


My guess is that the inlet valve is not operating or there is no water supply to the dishwasher.If it is the inlet valve, replacement is not expensive and it is easy to get to (it is on the end of the cold water hose inside the dishwasher usually at ...

I have a Bosch SHU43C05UC diswasher. Last night, I put it on before going to bed as usual. I was awakened a couple of hours later to a loud grinding sound (like a pump being run dry), and found the noise coming from the dishwasher. The display read "0" time remaining, so I opened the door and the dishes seemed clean, so I left it shut off. Tonight I have been trying to troubleshoot the problem. The dishwasher will turn on, but it will not seem to fill with water. I have verified that the

A knife with a plastic end must have fallen down during a cycle and melted to the heating coils of the dishwasher. Could not get it to come off at all! Then unfortunately we forgot and did another load. Obviously it has melted further and still wont come off. I'm not sure what to do? Thank you!

The dishwasher detergent is not dissolving. There is rinse aid in the dispenser - sometimes the door opens and the detergent comes out and sometimes it doesn't. If the detergent does come out then it is just sitting in the rack - should it drop to the bottom of the dishwasher? I have checked the door cleaned out around it to make sure the hook and release are working. I opened the door and the water is hot.

Hi, our new home us the KUDP02CR Built-in and we have two issues: 1) dishes on top and bottom are coming out dirty; unless we scrub very food particle of dishes and cutlery they just won't come out clean. Either food is baked on or cutlery/glasses/plates have a cloudy residue 2) the soap dispenser doesn't always open; we've tried cleaning it ourselves but to no avail. Sometimes it opens, sometimes it leaks out the liquid and other times it's still shut . Any help would be great. We've tried
