We have a 20-year-old...

We have a 20-year-old Bosch dishwasher that has been running great. Lately, it has intermittent problems such as being stuck in the rinse cycle while continuing to run. Other times, it won't start at all without resetting the circuit breaker.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Bosch SMU and 7052UC/14 SN7610300078 installed 7/11/97.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, if possible.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I can think of.

That was a very common issue, the main controller is bad in the console. The programming chip on the board would go bad and start to not count properly for the cycles. The issue is they do not make the part any longer so there is no way to fix that issue. I am sorry for the bad news I would start looking for a new unit.

All I ask is please select the 5 STAR rating at the top of your page before leaving otherwise I receive ZERO credit for assisting you. Thanks and you can come back anytime for free followup questions.

Thanks for checking. We decided to buy a new one, but I'd much rather repair an old one because nobody makes appliances that are built to last anymore.
