Retrieving Fault Codes Stored in a Bosch Dishwasher Control to Help Troubleshoot a Problem

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dishwasher Repair 02 April 2014 · 278 views
Bosch, dishwasher, fault codes
Bosch dishwasher not heating? Stalling in cycle? Not filling? Some other weird problem? Wouldn't it be nice if you could get just get some clue about what's wrong? Well, you can!

All Bosch dishwashers (and most modern appliances that use electronic control boards) store fault codes pertaining to specific areas the appliance is having a problem with... or at least the areas that the control board thinks is having a problem. Anyway, it's a good place to start. These control boards all have a secret key dance to enter that secret service mode and receive those error codes.

Now, for the first time ever in the history of the Interwebs, Brother PDuff reveals the super secret key dance to enter service mode and retrieve the stored error codes. Let's listen in...

You can try to access the test program to retrieve possible fault codes:

With the door closed, press and hold the second and fourth buttons to the right of the display while pressing the On button.
As long as these two buttons are pressed, the associated leds will light, then the display will show the model coding identifier. Release the two buttons.
Press the same two buttons to display any stored fault codes:

0 = No fault
1 = Fault in Hydro Sensing system
2 = Heater fault
4 = Fill fault
8 = Fault in NTC system
16 = Water switch cannot be positioned

Note: If more than one fault is detected, the fault code is added up. Ex: Fault code 3 = fault 1 + fault 2.

Press Off to exit.

Now Accepting Applications for the Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp Beta Class!

ATBC, boot camp and 1 more...
The Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp is currently in the Beta testing phase. Final pricing for tuition will be announced after the Beta phase. The Beta class will be a very small group of carefully selected early testers who agree to provide constructive feedback for improving the course. After the Beta period, all students will pay the full tuition at the current rates.

The specially-reduced tuition for the Beta class is $100 for the first half of the course, Part 1: Fundamentals. This is a fraction of what the full tuition for Part 1 will be. Financing is available.

If you would like to be considered for the Beta testing group, please submit your application by Tuesday, April 8, 2014.

The Boot Camp will be open for the Beta class to begin their studies on April 13.

Part 2 of the Boot Camp is still in development and its Beta period will be announced later.


Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp Sample Course

ATBC, boot camp, training, sample
We're still pecking away like little Woody Woodpeckers writing unit lessons, making screencasts, creating quizzes, working from sun up to moon rise to get Part 1 of the Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp ready to unleash on an unsuspecting and woefully unprepared world by April 13. Yep, that's our deadline so picked because it's right before Holy Week. Seemed like a good place for a deadline.

Meanwhile, as promised in my last post, I've prepared a little morsel of the course which you are invited to sample. The purpose of this sample is not so much to give you a peek into the course content, although it does that, but rather to give you an idea of the look and feel of the course. If you're not familiar with online learning, this may help give you an idea of what it's like. To take the sample course, Kommen zie hither, bitte.

The other important part of the course, which you won't see unless you're enrolled, is the forum where you can ask questions and get help on the units you're working on that are giving you trouble. Between the quizzes and the forums, Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp is the web's premiere interactive appliance repair learning experience.


Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp Update

appliance training and 2 more...
Just wanted to give a quick update on the Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp. Don't think we've forgotten about it! In fact, just the opposite-- developing the course has been an all-consuming task for me and Mrs. Samurai (she's a world-class technical editor). You can get a sneak-peak and what we've been doing at the Boot Camp website: http://ApplianceTechBootCamp.com

You won't be able to click into the units and view the contents but you can see the basic course structure and the units that we've completed or are in the process of editing.

The course will be fully interactive with many of the units requiring an 80% score to pass and advance to the next unit or module. The quizzes are automatically and instantly graded so there's no waiting for the test results before moving on. In this way, the entire course is kept self-paced.

Also, if a student has questions about the material or needs more explanation about something, that's available in the Forums at the Boot Camp site.

Please let me know if you have any comments or questions! Would love to have your comments and feedback at this point in the development because it would be very easy to incorporate those changes.


ASTI 2014, Evernote Edition

ASTI, 2014, evernote
Well, mah bruvahs, heading out on that big ol' jet airliner from Logan tomorrow afternoon making that long haul to San Diego for the 2014 ASTI. Looking forward to seeing some of you there and will miss those of you who can't make it this year.

For my absentee brethren, the Samurai's got your six! I'll be taking copious notes and will post them all as PDFs in the Downloads section when I return. Additionally, if any of you have any specific questions you'd like me to ax the instructors, please post them as comments to this blog post (so I can keep them all in one place and make sure I get them asked).

Also, one more goodie: I'll be posting various highlight notes and photos from the conference to a public Evernote notebook. You can check in periodically to see what's new as the conference progresses. Access the Evernote ASTI notebook here: https://www.evernote...oidman/asti2014
