Bosch Freestanding Dishwashers

Bosch currently manufactures freestanding dishwashers in two width sizes, 45cm and 60cm. The 45cm dishwashers are commonly referred to as slimline dishwashers and are designed to fit into kitchens with narrower spaces. Just because the appliance appears to be smaller, it does not mean that it is a simple and straightforward machine. There are several things that can wrong with a dishwasher. It is always best to leave a qualified technician to repair your freestanding dishwasher, especially a slimline Bosch dishwasher as the Repair Aid technician will be familiar with the layout of the machine and how to remove and replace parts quickly and efficiently from tight enclosed spaces.

The technology that is present in modern Bosch dishwashers has been developed rapidly over the last few years and while it may be a simple process to replace a seal or a complete mechanical part, ensuring that the part is calibrated for the technology to perform as it was meant is something that will require an experienced and well trained engineer.

Although dishwashers have come a long way from their origins when the first motorised domestic dishwasher made its appearance in 1929, many of the faults that occur are much the same. Power and electrical, mechanical, including the motor, drainage systems and all moving parts and the construction faults such as when seals fail or there is physical damage to the body of the machine.

Bosch Integrated Dishwashers

While freestanding dishwashers that need to be repaired can be easily pulled out, making diagnosis and replacement of the defective part relatively easy, Bosch integrated dishwashers present a whole new range of problems. If the problem cannot be identified and repaired by accessing the door or the interior of the machine, it is possible that dismantling of the built in unit may be necessary. Good dishwasher engineers will have both training and experience in tackling this kind of problem. If you require integrated dishwasher service, Repair Aid can help – please call our support team on 020 7183 6944.

Common problems start with issues such as complete power failure. Often built-in appliances are wired to an independent fused circuit it may be necessary to remove the entire unit, especially if the wiring cannot be accessed through an adjoin kitchen cabinet. Fortunately, most dishwasher electrics are located in the door, When the problem is clearly an electrical one, it is imperative that you call a technician. Mains filters and capacitors will still retain some charge even when there is no longer power running to the appliance. This could lead to a nasty shock or serious injury.

Bosch Compact Dishwashers

One of the biggest tell-tale signs of a problem with modern Bosch dishwashers is that they become noisy. Innovative design and good technological implementation means that these machines have been designed to be quieter to the point that only a quiet hum suggests that they are in use. Banging, clunking or load noises from the motor justify an urgent call to the repairman.

Bosch compact dishwashers are even smaller than the slimline range and will be arranged slightly differently in order that they can accommodate all the necessary parts to function. Noise does not necessarily mean that the fault comes from the motor. Mechanical noise problems in the dishwasher include the drain pump and the recirculation motor.

Repairing a compact Bosch dishwasher requires the eyes and expertise of a technician that has seen the machine before. All Repair Aid engineers have received extensive training on the dishwashers that they service and repair. We implement a comprehensive in house training programme that included manufacturer specific models and technologies. We also ensure that our staff maintain their professional development and never fall behind in current trends and technologies. Please call Repair Aid and we will be happy to assist with any repair.
