My Bosch dishwasher has electric but has stopped mid wash.

Customer Question

My Bosch dishwasher has electric but has stopped mid wash. Opening the door and resetting the programme then restarting it has not worked. The electric works the wash cycles when selected light up but when you close the door nothing happens at all.

You there ?

Yes thanks for that ... if the door closes properly and water starts to fill but then it wont start the problem is with the motor that is bad and will need replacement... with the dishwasher unplugged you can pull it out and tilt it on its back by around 45 degrees to make sure all excess water drains off... after this is done clean the drain pump... now plug it back and try again, if the problem is still there you will have to replace the motor

The door closes and nothing happens. No water fills up and the water that was in there from the previous wash still hasn't drained
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 1 year ago.

OK then unplug it and try the procedure to clean the drain pump

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can't do that as its intergrated
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 1 year ago.

OK can you simply remove the lower front plate and then clean the drain pump
