How long before the soap dispenser opens and how do you check whether the wax dispenser motor is working properly? Currently, it does not release the dispenser.
Answer Hello. During each wash program, the wax motor opens twice, once to dispense detergent and again to
dispense rinse-aid. The wax motor opens the same -- linkages open the detergent door & operate the
rinse-aid dosage plunger. Dispensers can have reed switches or optical rinse-aid sensors.
Hi. My dispenser has stopped opening on an older Bosch. I've read it may be an unreplacable control panel. Can you tell me what 'cycles' the washer goes through? I'm attempting to determine if I can just put the soap in the bottom of the machine before I run the wash.
Bosch does not have a cycle chart available to determine at what cycle the unit is in at any given point. The door not opening could also be an issue of the units dispenser being faulty and you would have to check to see if the control is sending power to the dispenser to determine if it is the board or the dispenser.
Purchased an actuator hoping that would fix the problem (dispenser not opening during cycle), but that didn't solve the problem. Put a meter to the wiring, but not sure what the voltage through the line is at this point in the assembly. Didn't register a reading at 10 - 150ac. If the control unit is bad, what are my options?
Answer Hello Dan. The only options you have is to either place the soap into the bottom of the unit at the start of the wash cycle, or replace the dishwasher unless you can find a used control or have your old control repaired. The contorl 00647474 has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part.
Thank you for answering my q. about actuator, it's works! But no power coming to wax motor, actually no GND. I cheked wire is ok. Control unit maybe broken? My problem at the beginning no power to water inlet valve.
Answer Hello Boris. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the control module 647475 is bad in the unit. Make sure all the wiring is good. The module has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part. Thanks.
How can I verify my actuator? I mesured resinstance 2.47 kOhms. I connected to 110v directly no any move. Thank you, Boris
Answer Hello Boris. If you applied power to the actuator 00166635, it takes it about 2 minutes to move. If it does not, it will need to be replaced. You can also test for power coming to the actuator. If there is power there, then it is bad. Hope this helps.
I am looking for an actuator for the soap dispenser? Would this part work?
Answer Hello Michelle! Yes, the actuator part number 00166635 will work on your Bosch model SHU3336UC/14. Thanks.
