Common Bosch Dishwasher Problems
My dishwasher fills up with water randomly
Most people’s Bosch dishwashers fill up with water at random. The problem will cause you to waste water, which could leak onto your floor. The problem is due to a malfunctioning water inlet. Water fills your dishwasher when the water inlet does not close properly. To check and repair a defective water inlet, turn off your dishwasher.
Switch off your dishwasher’s water supply. Locate the inlet water valve (consult your manual if necessary). The valve should be inspected to determine if the solenoid is stuck or damaged. It is not possible to repair a damaged valve. After replacing the valve, you must plug in your dishwasher again and see if the issue has been resolved.
The water in the dishwasher is dirty
This is the second most common problem that people encounter with Bosch dishwashers. In this case, the dishes will not be clean, and you may experience leaks. The check valve most often causes this problem. Check valves to ensure that only one direction of water flow is allowed, preventing dirty water from entering the dishwasher. To inspect the Check Valve, shut off the power supply and the water. Check valves are usually located right next to the drain-pump on Bosch dishwashers. If you need clarification, check the manual. You should check the valve for damage. Replace the valve if it’s faulty. Remove the lower wash rack, spray arm, filter screen basket, and filter screens to replace the check valve. To remove the cover, unscrew it and pull it out. After removing the check valve, you can replace it with a fresh one. After replacing the check valve, you can put the dishwasher back together to see if you solved the problem. In this case, you’ll need to get a Bosch dishwasher technician to look it over.
My dishwasher won’t drain
Next, people complain about their Bosch dishwashers not draining correctly. If this happens, debris and dirty water will clog up your dishwasher, and you won’t be able to clean your dishes. To solve this issue, you can clean the drain. To remove the bottom rack, open the dishwasher door. Remove the bottom cover and spray the arm if you have one. If there is a lot of water in your dishwasher, you must manually drain the water using a container. Then, use a cloth to soak up any remaining water. Try to turn the impeller manually. Remove any obstructions. If the impeller is not moving, a technician must inspect your machine. It may be necessary to replace the entire impeller if it cannot move. Check the continuity with a multimeter. If the pump does not have continuity, you will need to replace it.
The water in my dishwasher doesn’t fill up
Next, people complain about their Bosch dishwashers not being able to fill it with enough or any water. This will prevent you from washing your dishes properly. A faulty inlet water valve is the leading cause of this issue. This valve is complicated to fix, so you should replace it. To replace the valve, turn off the power and the water to the dishwashing machine. It is usually located through the lower panels. Disconnect the wire harness from the water hose. Attach the new inlet, reattach wires and water, and then assemble the dishwasher. Now, you can test your dishwasher and see if it has fixed the issue. If not, then call in a qualified technician.
Why is my dishwasher, not drying dishes
The dishwasher will not dry your dishes properly after a cycle. Several faulty components within your Bosch dishwasher can cause this issue. The most common faulty components are the vent motor and heating element. This is how you fix it: turn off the power and water. Find the dishwasher vent, and make sure it opens correctly. The vent fan motor will need replacing if it is not working properly. Check the fan motor. You will need to find the motor and test continuity with a multimeter. It must be replaced if there is no continuity. If the fan is working, you can check continuity with a multimeter. If there is no continuity, the heating element is faulty and must be replaced. You can call a Bosch technician if you are unable to find the cause or do not have a multimeter.
