Do It Yourself Bosch Dishwasher Repair

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

Bosch is known for making quality appliances, but like all good things sometimes there's an untimely end. While there are many things that can cause a Bosch dishwasher to be repaired, the best solution is always a professional one.

However, there are a few common problems that you can access and perhaps alleviate yourself. Identifying problems within your dishwasher is important. One common problem people face is that the water heating circuit isn't properly working; this can cause the dishwasher to take longer than usual to complete a full cycle.

In order to solve the problem of your dishwasher taking too long to complete a cycle, it's important to have the diagrams you need to fix the problem. Diagrams can often be found online or through the manufacturer.

Once you've obtained these diagrams, it's important to learn how to identify which part isn't working. Just because the dishwasher is taking a long time to cycle doesn't mean it's only one piece.

Using a multi-meter will help you to determine whether or not you have live power going to all the necessary parts. There are actually several parts that can fail on a water circuit board within a Bosch dishwasher and it's not limited to any one item at any given time.

So once you've found out which part isn't working, it's as simple as ordering the part and being patient in waiting for it to arrive. Most parts for a Bosch dishwasher repair come from the manufacturer and will arrive in one to two days.

With the part in hand, you will next need to obtain a soldering gun or pen. This type of tool is available in most Do-It-Yourself stores or Home Improvement stores for a relatively small price.

Soldering guns come in handy for smaller jobs like repairing small circuit boards in TVs, computers, and in this case dishwashers. With the soldering gun in hand, it's very important to take the proper precautions when working with a hot object.

Very carefully solder the piece to the main circuit board where the original piece was. If you feel a little shaky or like you cannot do this, then it's wise to either find some one with soldering experience or a professional.

Once soldered, the piece will need to set. While it's wise to wait a full day and then check on it before use, it's not necessary. A soldering pen is easier to use with smaller jobs, however you want to make sure that once the metal has dried it is has obtained a sturdy bond to the circuit board or your job will fail entirely.

Hiring a professional in most cases is the wisest thing, however, and it is recommended for anyone that's not familiar with appliance repair. While this is only one of many scenarios for Bosch dishwasher repair, it is most certainly not the only one. It is best too look up the manual to determine your problem first and research before properly beginning a repair.
