Bosch SHE55M05UC Not Draining - can't access drain pump

5 posts in this topic

Yesterday my Bosch Dishwasher SHE55M05UC /50 stopped draining. Seemed to make an unusual noise on and off for a few days leading up to the problem.

Looking for suggestions on how to diagnose the problem - any tests I can run?

Thanks

Probably something jammed in the drain pump or a bad pump motor. Remove the bottom panel, drain pump is on the left hand side. Remove the wires from the pump and the drain hose from the pump. Pump unsnapping bayonet style, there's a lock tab you need to hold down on the pump ring while you turn it to remove it. Tight fit under there. Dark, too. Use a flashlight so you can see what you're doing.

Bail the water from the basin before you remove the pump!

I purchased a new drain pump for my

Bosch SHE55M05UC, I cannot figure out how to access the pump. I removed the toe kick but can still not get to the pump, please help. The instructions I received were incomplete. Also if anyone has the diagnostic codes for this model I'd appreciate sharing

I find removing the outer door panel is helpful...remove the 6 screws, 3 left,3 right on the inner door edges.

Next spot the galvanized strip above the sump access...it has a plastic wire channel attached to it and a screw holding it on either end. Remove the screws and have a helper hold it up out of your way, no need to detach the wire channel.

The only other thing in the way is a corrogated plastic hose slipped into a hole in the sump...simply pull it out and move it to the side.

This should give you enuff room to get at the small plastic release tab and twist the pump out of its position.

Hope this helps!
