We love this Bosch dishwasher. But it stopped working some months ago. It heats up the water and pumps it out. But the spray arms don't turn and the water flow seems low. It also makes a grinding sound that it never made before. What part would cause this to happen? Is this a common complaint with this model? The unit is approximately nine years old.
Answer Hello Mike,
Remove the filters in the bottom of the unit and use a wet/dry vacuum to get the water out. Use a Torx bit to remove the single screw holding the impeller protector in place. Pull this part out and use the wet/dry vacuum again to clear the impeller area. This will normally remove a piece of debris, (piece of broken glass, bone fragment, etc...), and re-install the impeller protector and retaining screw. If trying the unit does not produce desirable results, replace the pump.
The dishwasher stopped functioning and had a lot of standing water in the bottom. I have the drain motor removed. Can i test this motor by applying 120volts to it?
Yes, you can bench test the drain pump of the unit by applying 120 vac to it. This will tell you whether the drain pump is working. You will also want to check the drain line to make sure that there is no clogging. Check with the drain in place at the control board with the unit in a drain cycle and test to make sure that the control is putting out 120 vac to the drain pump.
HI, I've have a problem for a few days. the dishwasher will not clean very well when the cycle is finish. I have standing water 1/2 on the grid. I can hear the pump, but the water is not going to the drain, I need to remove the water myself. if I do not, I think that the dishwasher runs with old water. When i remove the water, and run with nothing inside, the water is clear, but remains in the bottom of the dishwasher. Thanks for the help.
Answer Benjamin, You're probably correct on all of the statements you made, But there are a couple of things to check before you replace any parts. You should first check the drain hose for kinks and clogs, You could disconnect the drain hose from underneath the kitchen sink, and select a drain cycle, and allow the water to drain into a bucket. This will usually flush any debris or clogs that may have developed in the drain hose. Then if all's OK, you'll need to access and remove the drain pump 167082 and check the drain chamber for debris or damage and the vanes on the impeller are in tact. Any other issues would involve the kitchen sink drain system.
