Bosch she44c05uc Dishwasher not finishing cycle

14 posts in this topic

Hello! i have a bosch she44c05uc that is not finishing its cycle usually with 2-3 minutes remaining, it will stay in cycle until i hit cancel. i did a bit of research and from what i can gather its the circuit board one of the resistors or something is fried? (correct if wrong) I'd like to replace whatever part it is that is causing this problem as the dishwasher is fairly new. I think i need this but really love you guys and trust your judgement.

Main Control Board

Item #1557799 (OEM Part)

can anyone supply info on whether

1. i am right about this part needing repair or replacing
2. the procedure for repairing/diagnosing and how to take apart the front of the dishwasher.

also do i need to remove this dishwasher from the power source first? (probably a silly question)


thanks guys. love this site.

:woot:

It may be a bad solder connection on the Heater Relay Pins on the Controller Board.

would you recommend replacing the control board, or attempting to repair the sodder?

Replacing the control is th best option - the plastic casing does come apart if you manipulate all of the little locks on it

see here: http://appliantology...e/276-img-0491/

thanks! new part should arrive wednesday, I will update once I get it installed and run the dishwasher to see if that was the problem, then take a hammer to the plastic covering on the old one to see if it was the board.

Don't smash it, release all of the clips around the middle of the housing (visible here) - examine the relay pin solders (which are likely burnt) - repair it at your liesure and keep on hand to swap if and when that reoccurs.

The clips are a bit of a chore to pry open all at once - work at it carefully with a small screwdriver.

fair enough! i did try for hours yesterday to open that thing, I can get a few of the clips, but I have no idea where the other ones were, your pictures are fair at best :woot: is there a way to get me a picture of the clips? i'd be greatly appreciative of it! otherwise, i will give it another go when i have a glass of scotch and 5 hours to kill :rocker: :rocker:

I owe you guys some beers when you come to NYC. seriously.

i took your advice, sat down with some dental picks, some micro-screwdrivers and a glass of jamaican rum on the rocks and went to work. managed to get that sucker open! problem diagnosed and confirmed!
