Dishwasher is making gear turning noise, water is coming in and draining but no spray. From earlier reply sounds like the impeller is bad. If the water is coming in and out does this mean the moter is still good? How do I check this to see if it is the impeller that needs to be replaced, or the whole motor? How do I get the dishwasher to run with door open?
We do not recommend trying to run the dishwasher with the door open. To access the circulation motor you will need to pull the unit from installation and rolling it on its back. You will then remove the screws holding the base pan in place and allow the base pan to partially open. You will then be able to access the circulation pump. Check the impeller for damage and for something being caught in it.
The dishwasher I have I can hear a pump working but the machine is not running and water seems like it is just trickling out like it has no pressure inside to even spin the washing arms I have a new braded water supply line installed on it so I know there are no kinks.
You will want to check to make sure that there is no water in the in the base of the unit which would cause the units drain pump to continue to run due to a flood sense. This would cause the unit to not run except the pump and would cause water to not enter the unit. If there is water in the base you will need to determine the source of the leak.
Fills and drains fine no unusual noise - in wash mode rotational noise is heard from the bottom of the unit while water is being moved around during washing cycles.
Answer Hello Bob. You need to check and see if the water level is filling up to the proper level inside the unit. If it is low, the water will not circulate properly and will not clean the dishes properly. If you determine it is low, you will need to replace the water valve in the unit.
Hello, I have a Bosch shu3006uc which I have let sit for years as I mostly do dishes by hand. We ran the machine recently and it squeals and leaks all over the floor. I am sure the seals got hard and brittle but not sure which parts to replace. I am willing to fix the machine but need to know if I should by the circulation pump kit #20 or a drain pump? Please advise, Thanks, Frank
Answer Hello Frank,
The squeal is from the seal sticking to the motor shaft from not being run for some time. The leak is most likely the same seal that is making the noise. This will be in the circulation pump since the drain pumps usually do no have this characteristic. Considering the design of this unit, I would recommend to replace the water valve also since they tend to stick after long periods of non-use. Since the water valve will normally stick in the open position, this is well advised to prevent water damage to the home.
