Bosch Slimline Exxcel SPS53E18GB / 23 Dishwasher Stops Mid Cycle

Postby Gubbinski » Sun Mar 17, 2019 8:53 pm

My 4 year old Bosch dishwasher (slimline Exxcel SPS53E18GB / 23) has started cutting out mid wash cycle. The check water light comes on and it's left full of water.

I removed the waste water pump filter and there didn't appear to be anything blocking the impeller, it turned freely.

I ran a test cycle with the hose in a bowl and it does pump water. All seemed fine and ran as it should initially.

It was a 29 minute "quick" cycle. It counted down to 14 minutes normally, during which it pumped out once into the bowl, but then the timer jumped back to 23 minutes which was odd.

It seemed to still be making all the right noises though, still water sloshing about inside. Then when it got to 21 minutes (again) it stopped completely, the display showed 0:00 and the check water light came on.

Any ideas on how to fix it would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
