Dishwasher Repair / Re: Bosch Dishwasher Model no. SHS5AVF6UC/22
« Last post by Rackets on Today at 11:21:45 AM »
After running more diagnostics and considering all factors..

I (may have) have hit upon the solution. Up until recently, I have used liquid or gel detergents. Not long ago, my wife brought home the small multi-compartment "pods" to try. I figured "why not?" The pods are placed in the soap compartment, of course..

It turns out that the cellophane-like wrapper (which is formulated to dissolve upon contact with hot water) was not dissolving, getting caught in the flow channels and causing the error code! It only seems to happen with a brand I recently purchased. And my water temperature is sufficiently hot.

After three cycles using the gel, there have been no problems. My particular model does not appear to have a contact macerator (but it is well-filtered).

So... What is larger (and more flexible) than a small morsel becomes trapped!

If you isolated the defrost thermostat and the heater itself yes. Those values sound good for the thermostat and heater so the only thing left would be the board itself.

certain models have a flow sensor that will show multiple bars. As the dryer vent becomes more obstructed the number of bars will increase. The easiest way the rule out the dryer itself is to compare the suction between the dryer connected and disconnected from the dryer vent itself. Some models however have a "clean filter" display which comes on after every load as a reminder. It just depends on what particular model it is as to which one they are using.
ok so exactly how long does the dishwasher run for minute wise before it hangs up? the reason I ask is because if it runs for a few minutes and hangs up then I would say perhaps something with the door switch. Is the dishwasher centered properly and not hitting on any cabinets? a common issue for it to run for a few minutes and stop is the door switch. It will make and then run for a few minutes and break contact possibly due to vibration or just a bad door switch. as far as advancing the cycle while it's running you can't really do that on the pcb newer models. you can put it in test mode but you can't advance to a specific step during normal run without interrupting the cycle. As far as the Impeller blade or the "chopper Blade" that may have been something that got caught it the drain pump and damaged the impeller.

Thatís what I was afraid of, but I couldnít think of anything else it could be.  I hoped maybe one of you guys might have seen something else in your experience.  Oh well, a near transmission it is.  Thanks

That model is a direct drive model and does not have an actuator. If the motor is running during agitate, the agitator shaft is not moving and you have verified that the coupler is ok, it's the gearcase (transmission)
Thanks for the reply, Dbrock.  I appreciate it.  The water inlet valve and screen is my next focus.  See below for what else I have been trying today. 


I found that the chopper blade was damaged, so I replaced it. This has not solved the base problem.

When the Normal cycle (with pre-running the tap water to get it hot) hangs at 97 minutes, after letting it run for several minutes, I open the door to check things out.

The water is not high enough to cover the floor of the dishwasher. I added several quarts of hot water from the tap to fill up onto the floor level. Closed the door and hit start. Still sticks at 97 minutes. Several observations after opening the door to check several times:

- the washing cycle seems to run: soap packet dissolves and upper and lower arms distribute the water throughout the dishwasher
- the bottom arm is not always turning well
- I checked the temp of the water and it is 130 degrees (Normal cycle), so it seems that the heating element is working?
- Cancel/Drain works fine

Is there a way to manually advance the dishwasher to the next phase of the cycle? If I let it wash for an adequate amount of time to wash the dishes while stuck at 97 minutes, I'd like to be able to advance it to drain and then rinse to at least be able to get the dishes washed while I'm figuring this out.

Does this sound like control board bad.
Dishwasher Repair / Re: LG Dishwasher starts then stops possible sensor issue

yeah that would be the first time ever I've heard of a leveling sensor on a dishwasher. that sounds more like an issue with one of the micro switches for the door switch. it may sometimes seem like it closes ok but I would definitely put eyes on the door switch.
well if you have the tech sheet for your model it should give you the resistance value for the water inlet valve. I don't think it's the inlet valve, you said it fills fine in test mode. Generally speaking if you have an appliance component that works in test mode but not in normal mode the board is not functioning properly for some reason.
