2 to 3 hours in labor saved not to mention the cost of  replacement sump assembly because this capacitor    Attached File  1-20141211_121019.jpg   14.35KB   0 downloads     failed.  


By purchasing this capacitor & using epoxy to glue a bolt to it I spent about fifteen minutes total time & $6.00 for the capacitor    Attached File  1-20141217_081037.jpg   15.47KB   0 downloads    to effectuate a repair & make a client very happy.    I would have loved to use an original replacement part,  but in this case it was cost prohibitive. 


The Bosch dishwasher is running like new with no one the wiser other than client & me.

Plugged  a 45 mf 300 volt capacitor (I believe it is a start capacitor) in temporarily & DW came alive.   I just epoxied a 1 inch bolt to the capacitor so I can bolt it in to the sump housing like the original. Tomorrow morning I will mount the bolted capacitor  & reinstall the unit.   Will update this posting next day or two whether it works or not.


I am glad the good lord gave me an analytical mind.

Spannewrench, exactly what I did.    Spent part of the afternoon dismantling this unruly beast.    Found what appears to be small feet of a cutting board (thanks Todd for the identification) hung in the hose from the pump to the case brake.   Fooled me because I could blow thru it easily.   With the friction of water the pump took too long to drain the sump & the feet would cause enough blockage to shut the unit at times.   That explained the unit randomly working then shutting down.


More experience earned from the school of Appliantology hard knocks & great Shakes(Shares) of Technician's Knowledge.
