  4. Thank you very much for this video. This was the fix for my Bosch dishwasher, which wasn’t draining at all. I followed your video and sure enough, there was crud on the impeller and when I pulled the back flow preventer, it fixed my problems.

  7. Hi
    Thanks for the video link and the info.
    On my SMU2042UC/14 dishwasher, I couldnt get power to the Pump When the control sequence set out power from the control timer. It turned out that the wirring harness that carries the wires from the controls to the components under teh machine like the pump are protected with a flat rubber sleeve and the flexing broke the pump wire inside the sleeve. A one year fix was to re place the individual wire but it wasnt flexible enough thus it broke again eventually.

    Thankyou for the general common repair info.

  8. Hi, thanks very much for the video link – it is much appreciated. My issue is similar to the majority of the ones described here, but I wonder if something else might be wrong with my Thermador DWHD64CS/22. My wife loaded the dishwasher today and started it. She said it ran for a long time but didn’t sound like it was doing anything except draining. When I came home, I opened the door and the detergent hadn’t been released, and there was no water at the bottom of the tub. I turned it off and then on again with the door open, and it made the same draining noise even though the door was open. I followed the instructions in the video and found that the fine filter had been breached and some debris was allowed to get past it, including a small bone fragment that was stopped by the small plastic grates before it could get to the impeller. After removing the cover over the impeller, I found that it spun when powered on. I removed the backflow valve, but didn’t notice any issues there. It just seems like it dries to drain endlessly. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi,

      Yes, you are more then welcome friend! Sounds like your DW is in flood mode. There is a flood switch in the bottom of the dishwasher that is probably activated. Pull the kick plate off of pull the unit out. In the bottom see if there is water activating the switch. if so, dry the water and run and watch for a leak. If no water is present, make sure the puck is not chewed up and pushed up..

  9. I couldn’t be happier! We were one day away from vacation when the dishwasher stopped draining. Decided to remove as much water as possible and deal with it when we got back. When we got home I looked at a couple of website suggestions and tried yours first. I followed your simple, perfect directions, and there it was, a piece of chipped coffee cup stuck in the impeller. Thanks so much. Now I’m searching for a quick easy fix for the ice maker on my refrigerator.

  10. Thank you!!! A popcorn seed was my problem.

  11. I followed the repair and cleared the impeller last week and it drained fine! But it happened again today. I’ll clear it again but welcome any other suggestions. Dishwasher is not leaking and I don’t have an air gap on my faucet. The plastic control panel cover pulled off but machine still works although recently a bit noisier than usual. Too expensive to replace the cover pieces as all the plastic tabs have broken off. I’m learning alot as a stay at home mom about these repairs! Thanks for the video!

  12. Thanks for the video, I have used it several times and it has worked brilliantly, but my bosh has stopped draining again. On looking my impeller is not spinning freely and also my backflow plug has snapped and the small round rubber end has disappeared (I assume that this is what is jamming the impeller). Any ideas how I can fix this?
    Thanks so much

  13. Hello, thank you for your video. I have cleaned the impeller and drain hose…still have a small amount of water remaining at the end of cycle but much less…covering about half way up the impeller. Is any amount of undrained water normal?
