Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description
I'd say the issue actually with the control...unfortunately. The "1" being displayed is actually an error code associated with a heating fault.


**B/S/H/ issued a recall on certain models between 1999 - 2006 depending on the model & serial number, you can check with yours but...you'll need the serial number too. Here`s the link if you want to see for yourself **

http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/


As I've alluded to the issue is likely within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ).

If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself...it really isn't very complicated.

It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board.

The culprit will 99% of the times be one of the pins from the heater relay,

**Flip this over and inspect the solder joints, it will be obvious when you see it.**

This ones new, but it's where to look...

...hence the unit sit`s and takes longer & longer to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed...or takes a long time as I mentioned and eventually display's "1" on units with a display and usually very poor cleaning as a result.

You can also run the unit through a regular or econo cycle ...any cycle with the exception of rinse & hold, and with the door panel removed place an ammeter on the gray/black wire it should draw 11 amps during the wash cycle...after it fills and the flow switch indicates it has adequate water to engage the heater.

i.e.

**My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...or it will not last, although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)**

**Please disconnect the power or turn off the breaker before attempting any service to the dishwasher.**

If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau/Siemens, to service your machine.

Hope this answer`s your question, let me know if I can assist you further.

Sound like water got on to the motor, probably ready for a new dishwasher. Sorry

Hi -

I order all Bosch parts direct from Bosch. You wont get them much cheaper anywhere else. If the model number above is correct, the part number is 359976. This is the whole upper spray arm assembly which clips onto the upper basket. The arm and retaining nut are not sold separately.

(0614 is the position number in the parts list, not the part number)

http://www.bosch-eshop.com/eshop/bosch/us/prodls.htm?Matnr=000000000000359976&ESHOPTYPE=A

$21.60 + shipping (in stock)

The link is for the Bosch USA eShop. If you are somewhere else, please let me know your location and I'll provide a different link. If you have a different from the one listed above, I can verify the part number for you, but this fits most Siemens/Bosch dishwashers, so it's likely to be the correct part..

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. On Bosch dishwashers with display such as yours the 2H indicates the cycle wash time is exceeding two hours and it should not. This is typical of a heating error so the cause must be determined. The question must be asked, is it a heater, a flow switch, an NTC or the actual control ? I can also tell you most times it is the control. I am presently on my iphone and as such don't have access to my files but if you check out my profile under dishwashers you will find a detailed explaination of how the check. Look specifically for units that show "1" and run & run. You will also find a link to the Bosch website on info regarding a recall which relates directly to your model and said issue. Otherwise I will post more info for you in the AM . Regards, Macmarkus :)
