Default Bosch dishwasher cycle problem

I recently started having a problem with my Bosch 2-year old
dishwasher (SHU5315). When the time left indicator LED gets to 1
minute left, it just keeps going and going and never stops until I
manually cancel the cycle. It does this on all wash settings except
for the 9-minute rinse setting. Has anyone else ever encountered
similar behavior?


After searching through misc.consumers.house, I have seen some
posts which suggest that the heat sensor needs to be resoldered. Only,
not having a schematic of the washer, I am not sure where the heat
sensor is. Does anyone know how to get technical information about
Bosch appliances?

Thanks in advance for any help.


-David,

-David,


You've got a 1000 dollar appliance there, more or less. Maybe the thing to
do is pay the service man to come out and fix it.

The heat sensor should be someplace in contact with the water in the tub, I
would think. Locate it and follow the wires back to the controller. Now
why the heat sensor would prevent the wash cycle from ending I don't know.
Or is this a sensor that tells that the dishes are dry by the increase in
temp? In that case it would probably be at the top of the unit.

del cecchi.

The wiring diagrams for appliances are often taped to the back side of kick
panels. That's where I found the diagrams for both my JennAir range and
KitchenAid dishwasher. Both appliances had service information and diagrams
in plastic bags hidden behind these panels. The material for the DW
outlined the key sequence that put the unit into diagnostic mode and
explained the procedure.

If you are able to diagnose the problem, you can find parts at
www.repairclinic.com They have a heater unit with sensor for $98 and a
program control module for $142.

The schematics for my Boash were folding up in the front of the base tray.
They are right though- You have a big bucks dishwasher. I'd at least call
Bosch and explain the problem.

Usually a bad control on the ones we have seen...

Behind the lower access panal is the wire diagram, they are hard to
follow at the best of times.

Bosch recomends replacing the module rather than repairing it, that
module should have a 5 year parts only warranty from your purchase
date.
