My Bosch dishwasher does not completely drain at the end of the cycle. There is a pool of filmy water up to the top edge of the pan.I removed the cylindrical sieve, the flat sieve and put my hand in but couldn't feel anything unusual as a blockage.I re-ran it on regular 2 washes ago and found it had drained. Then the problem returned with the next wash. No matter if I run it on 'Economy'.
My Bosch has the black light-up buttons on the top edge of the door. Two say cancel and drain and show a white line connecting them. I pressed these together and start at the same time, and the econo light button began flashing.I looked at the hose connections to the sink drain pipe and they are dry and solid. The floor area around is dry, too.What should I do or change next to return the unit to draining completely?
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.Bosch dishwashers are not easy to work on for drain issues unfortunately.You'll need to open the door and remove the center cylinder filter as well as the silver stainless mesh filter plate. This will allow you get gain access to the plastic sump (or pump cavity) below the filters. There is a little plastic dome held down by 1 screw on down inside the left side of the sump. Remove the screw (it's a size 15 torx bit screwdriver) and check for any blockages to the drain pump impeller that is now exposed. Put the cap back on and run another cycle to see if it works. If not, you'll need to uninstall the unit, disconnect the drain hose and blow through it to see if it's clear. If it's clear---replace the drain pump. Below is a link to a video that will show you how to take the sump apart to check the drain impeller.CLICK HERE
