Bosch Shu43C02UC dishwasher fills with water but the washing won't start. As the filling nears complete, a double clicking noise occurs to start the washing motor but nothing happens. The time continues to countdown but the machine is silent. When I open and close the door, the click click noise is heard but the machine is silent. I can cancel the cycle and drain the water but none of the washing or rinse cycles will activate but the timer works. The soap door even opens if the timer is left to

Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle). We also removed the hose from the machine as it had split and replaced it and we had the machine tilted on it's side. the dial still clicks round but it sounds like the pump is going and it doesn't seem to be filling with water.

Cycle begins and we can hear water filling up, but the arm doesn't spin, and water isn't being "sprayed" around the washer. We can hear the dishwasher "clicking" throughout the cycle, but nothing else is happening, and about 10 minutes through the cycle water just comes pouring out the bottom of the door. There is a bit of a burning smell as well.

I have a SHU3032UC BOSH Dishwasher for a couple of years now. Always worked as expected. Latetly, the dishwasher never stops. It looks stuck on an "unknown cycle"... The cycle dial stays at the "bottom" cycle (there's nothing written). If I turn it 1-2 "clicks", the dishwasher continues its work and ultimatly finishes with very good cleaning results. Once, I open the dishwasher when it was stuck in the "bottom" position, and there was hot watter at the bottom. Here's what I've tried so

KENMORE MODEL # 363.16222100 Hello - my dishwasher (model# above) is currently filled with H20 and will not drain/work. When the knob to select the dishwasher cycle to begin is turned, it just 'clicks' and does not engage the washing cycle. When I tried to just let it run the cycle as is to 'restart', it had an electrical odor to it., Currently the knob is at the 'Rinse & Hold-(Heated Dry Off)' part of the cycle and all dishes have been removed. I would appreciate any assistance available. Thank

My GSD3600 GE Dishwasher will not finish/start a cycle. The washer filled with water and during the cycle I heard a pop like someone knocked something over in the kitchen.

Normal wash cycle- tub fills (?), then comes a loud hummmm and nothing happens. I noticed water level didn't reach heater coil and added water until limiter switch clicked. Still just a loud hummmm. Machine was well into its regular cycle when this first occurred, but now, won't even get past initial fill. Pushing the "Cancel/drain" button activates motor and pump: they work fine.

When the cycle starts the machine fills with water and when there appears to be the right amount of water in the machine an error code F4 shows on the panel. 3 clicks can be heard during the first 5 seconds of the F4 code showing.
