UK Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
I can not see any etchings on the inside of the door. There is a grey label with "Type SM6P1B" on it. Note sure if this helps but the Operating Instructions refer to 9000 481 498 (8907).
Are you able to be more precise on the location of the model details?
Thanks for your help and honest response.
When it stops working, is the end light flashing?
OK, thanks for that.
It's not displaying an error code in that case.
Switch the appliance off.
Press and hold together the programme buttons.
While holding them, switch on.
In the row of 6 leds to the left of the buttons, counting from the left, the 4th should flash and the 5th come on steady..
Release the buttons.
Press the programme right button.
The 3rd, 4th and 5th leds should display a fault code.
Look at the leds and let me know which of 3, 4 and 5 are flashing.
Have done as requested,and 4th light flashed and 5th came on steady, pressed right programme button, then only one LED flashed - called "Cleaning display" in operating instructions.
Which number flashed after you pressed the programme right button?
When I pressed programme right button the LED that flashed indicated " Cleaning display". This LED is numbered 7 in the operating instructions, is signified by a sign that looks like a handbrush (?), and is the 8th LED along the top of the control panel from left to right. ( 1st is 9 hour timer programming LED, then 6 programme LEDs).
The LED that flashed is directly above the End display LED and to the left of the " check water supply" LED.
Sorry, leds 3, 4 and 5 as I indicated earlier are the ones you need to watch.
Did any of these 3 flash when you pressed programme right?
The service manual covers many models and doesn't show what the lights signify as they differ from appliance to appliance.
None of the LEDs 3,4,5 flashed when I pressed programme right.
I looked again at my dishwasher, it has 5 programmes ( not six as in diagram of operating instructions).
So the LED that does flash when I press programme right is the 7th LED along the top of the control panel from left to right. ( 1st is 9 hour timer programming LED, then 5 programme LEDs, which I presume are LEDs 2-6).
Sorry, The service manual shows that 3, 4 or 5 should flash.
Unfortunately there's no stored error code in your machine.
I had hoped to be able to retrieve a code.
However, as your machine is 2011 machine and it has a 2 year warranty (proof of purchase required) you would need to have Bosch come and repair it.
If you try to repair yourself you may invalidate the warranty.
Give Bosch a call and they should send an engineer out to sort it out.
Good luck with the repair.
