My 18 month old Bosch dishwasher turns on, but won't actually start working.

Three lights are on:

- Sanitize (steady)
- Auto Wash (steady) this is my usual setting
- Active (flashing!)

The dishwasher makes a slight noise when I turn it on, then there is complete silence. Then when I push the Start button absolutely nothing happens.

I have tried holding down various buttons and combinations of buttons. I have powered it on and off. I have even switched the circuit breaker on and off, but nothing happens. I have cleaned the filter in the bottom and ensured that the arms are rotating freely and now I am out of ideas. (And I am in a deep depression over the loss of my dishwasher.)

I am also not sure that it had finished it's complete wash program the last time that I ran it. After so many searches and reading blogs and forums, I have begun to question myself.

Can you help me please???

Hi Joy,
Did you get any solution to this diswasher issue. My dishwasher is the same model and have the same issue and is just two years old. I don't see any other posting in the net for this issue.
Thanks,
Jag

I've just installed Bosch's basic model dishwasher, SHE3AR52UC. The electronics seem fine; display lights are flashing -- the thing just can't be started. Water supply thru copper pipe seems fine, power cord seems fine. There's a scarcely audible hum.

Two others have recently reported a similar problem with 1-2 year old machines. I don't see a reply so far.

Bosch manual says that self-install voids warranty! Any ideas? David

I had the same problem and fortunately I could fix it by first holding the "start" until the "active" light didn't flash anymore. Then I turned off the machine and turned it on again. And it worked. :)

BOSCH SHE68T56UC. less than 2 years old. AUTO and 2:09 lights constantly blinking but could not start the machine. Tried all suggestions - circuit breaker reset, different button combinations tried, drain cleaned to no avail; HOWEVER, when I held down the START button for several seconds the blinking stopped, the readout was 0:00 with a simple small message "CLEAN". Was able to start up successfully!

I just called the Bosch help number in the manual, 1-800-944-2904. Lady spoke native USA english, had me cycle the start button (hold down for a short period) and then close the door.
Red light still flashed. She then instructed to close the door firmly. I did but it continued flashing. On my own, I closed the door and still held pressure on it and noticed the light went steady. I told the technichian what I observed and she indicated the latch probably needed to be replaced. I thanked her and hung up. I played with the door and was ably to get it to stay latched. Obviously, the flashing red light indicates door not latched. The fix is to reset the door latch or just have it replaced. Dishwasher is 4 years old and this was the first problem. Documentation (manual furnished at time of sale) had little indication of what the idiot lights represented.

I've had a Bosch for years and after the first 1 or 2 years it did the "same won't start past the second whirring" (Technical term). Found the fix back then, you push the power button right after the second whirring then turn it back on in a second or two and it kicks it right in and goes. Other than that it's been reliable... kinda sad.
