Bosch dishwashers are famous for their German engineering that combines high-quality components with quiet operation. Clogs and worn parts occasionally cause Bosch dishwashers to stop draining, leaving you with dirty dishes and a soaked appliance. A few simple troubleshooting procedures can often save you an expensive repair and get your dishwasher back in working order.
The kitchen sink and your dishwasher drain to the same place, so a clogged sink can prevent your dishwasher from draining. Before considering dishwasher parts, run ample water through the sink to check for clogs. If the sink is not backed up, try pressing Cancel on the dishwasher to activate the drain pump.
Food particles and debris can become lodged anywhere between the dishwasher basin and the drain pump, preventing proper drainage. Perform a simple dishwasher repair by removing the filter and washing it thoroughly. If the water doesn't drain when you remove the filter, turn off the appliance and remove the drain pump cover. Remove all visible debris from the pump before reassembling the appliance.
Although food can't make it through the drain pump, grease buildup can clog the waste pipe and prevent drainage. Break up the debris by squeezing the length of the pipe before running the dishwasher on its hottest cycle to melt the grease. If the deposits don't leave the waste pipe, search Bosch repair parts for a replacement.
