Good morning. I have a Bosch dishwasher, model SHX4AP02UC.

I love it, but it just started going directly from START to CLEAN. It sprays water on the dishes, then sits for awhile and then beeps. When I open it, the CLEAN light is on. I have tried turning it off, different wash settings, and even HALF LOAD.

I have looked in the user manuals, and they do not mention this.

Can you help? BTW - I am a scientist/engineer, and am comfortable with field stripping all kinds of equipment.
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So unfortunately this is a very common problem for this unit and it means that your main relay power board under the dishwasher along the right side has failed and needs to be ordered and replaced. The part itself is all plug and play so it's easy to replace, but it will require you un-installing the dishwasher to fix the issue. Below is a link to the part you need to order and replace for your model.

Thank you. I was afraid of that. Is it a recall item?


It's not, but there is a 5 year warranty on the part, but if you call Bosch to install the part, they will charge you trip and labor which will cost about the same or a little more than the part itself ($150-200).

Thank you - last question - does the part come with installation info?

It does not come with installation information, but uninstalling the board is really the only difficult part. Replacing the part itself takes less than 10 minutes because it's all plug and play.
