Bosch dishwasher that will not wash
« on: May 17, 2012, 07:40:31 PM »
I'm working a Bosch dishwasher that gets almost no water pressure to clean properly.  I replaced the water valve thinking maybe it was not getting enough water but it did not help.  Now I am planning on replacing the motor impeller kit thinking maybe the impeller is cracked or the fins may be broken off.  Before I pull the dishwasher out I thought I might be able to get some other techs thoughts on this.  The Model No. is SHV6803UC/12 and the serial No. is FD8206200148.  If someone knows where I can download a service manual for this dishwasher it would be great.  Thanks for any help you can give me!

I believe you are correct on the bad impeller.
They seem to shear off into 2 pieces.

Thanks for all your help.  I will order the impeller kit and let you know how things work out.

Thanks for all your help.  It was a bad impeller.  It was hard to get apart with a bad seal also.  The parts were all stuck to the motor shaft.  I had to cut them off & wire brush to threads on the motor shaft but all turned out well.  I owe you a beer!  When I figure out how to do this as I am new to this website, you will get it.  LOL
