Having problems with your Thermador Dishwashers ?

Pump is stuck on how do i unstick the float

\015 Mode lDWHD64CP\015

Answers :

The float is usually visible at the base of the dishwasher near the drain sump. If this is the case then simply press the dome of the float assembly to check if it springs up. If not, the spring is faulty and you need to replace the float. Otherwise if the float springs up, then the switch underneath might be the problem. See

On the otherhand if the float dome is not visible in your dishwasher, then you may need to provide more information as to which float are you referring to. For example how did you conclude the drain pump being stuck is related to the float?

Bosch SHU43C My Bosch SHU43C is stuck with the drain pump running. I ran the self-test and it gave me the fault code 4 wich indicates a filling fault. The washer is empty and all wash cycles display the correct number of minutes for the cycle. It counts down to 0, but the pump continues to run. Does this indicate a stuck float, or is the problem with the control board? Where is the float located? Are diagrams/pictures available on-line anywhere? I've done some searching, but haven't found any. R


My SHU43C is just over 3 years old. I had a similar problem recently. First, there were a few floods. Then, the Bosch only drained non-stop. Even when I used the Cancel Drain buttons the drain pump would run without stopping. When I ... Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher

My sink got clogged and now my bosch dishwasher SHU43C05UC wont fill with water. I read on line that it most likely is the float is stuck and to access the front kickplate needs to be removed. Is there a diagnostic test that I can do that will display on the LED to make sure that this is the problem. How involved is it to unstick the float. Can it be done without moving the dishwasher and just working from the kickplate area?

I have a Bosch Exxcel dishwasher which runs the drain pump constantly even with the door open and despite there being now water in the machine at the cycle wont start. I have checked the warer amtrix and the ffed hose to the sump for blockages.

My asko dishwasher ran great until recently. after finishing a load, the pump just continues to run (even when all water has been pumped from the unit and it's running dry) and the display isn't flashing anything (not codes, etc). Worried about destroying the pump, I shut off the washer at the breaker, and it's been a few months since we've had a dishwasher. Every once in a while I'll turn the power on and it just continues doing the same thing - it's stuck in this position/state, so I have to s

Over the past two years, the machine has occasionally stopped in mid cycle, while the pump continues to run, but the cycle stops advancing. Each time there has been water in the plastic pan under the pump, valves, and other mechanisms. The float switch has been tripped, stopping the cycle. Occasionally. but not always, the pump inlet has been partially obstructed by food waste. After bailing out the pan, the machine will run normally for weeks or months.
