Bosch dishwasher SHE44C05UC/43 - repair issues
Posted 01 October 2010 - 12:12 PM
I am struggling to diagnose my Bosch Dishwasher.
Symptoms: Water does not heat, E1 error code from diagnostic test.
Tried: Replacing temperature sensitive switch NTC.
The NTC is working correctly - the old one is not faulty it turns out.
The heater terminals measure 11 Ohms as specified in the manual
The flow switch seems to be fine - very low Ohms when closed.
The high limit switch is ~0.3 Ohms as expected.
My incoming water temp is >120 degrees F.
Any ideas would be most welcome as I am now losing face in front of my missus and she wants to call in the pros.

I will check that out when I get home tonight.
This site is really great by the way. I have had my 5 bucks worth already I feel.

This is kind of concerning though. It means the pin on the relay must be getting really hot in order to melt the solder and cause an open circuit.
This is essentially a product safety issue and should be reported to the manufacturer. Perhaps this has been done already?
Thanks again for the excellent advice.

My serial number is FD8701 so is not included in the recall (but it still obviously has a similar problem to the recall). I will call the Bosch hotline on Monday and see if they can send me a new controller board.

if not, you can try to re-solder the connection..
.. see if they can send me a new controller board.
sometimes they don't use enough solder ...
