How to Troubleshoot Bosch Logixx Dishwashers

Updated November 21, 2016

The Bosch Logixx dishwasher offers features such as reduced energy consumption, variable basket system, quiet noise level, 14-place setting capacity, six wash and dry programs, automatic detergent detection system, light-emitting diode display, five temperature options, self-cleaning filter, child lock, alternating spray arms and a stainless steel interior. If homeowners run into problems operating the Logixx dishwasher, some troubleshooting steps can help pinpoint the source of the problem and find a resolution.

Verify that the power cord is firmly connected to the Logixx dishwasher and the power supply, if the dishwasher is not operating. Replace or reset the circuit breaker as needed.

Push the dishwasher door closed, if there is power but the unit is not starting when a wash program is selected and "Start" is pressed.

Turn off and unplug the Bosch dishwasher, if there is water in the tub after washing. Pull out the bottom rack and lift out the filters, which look like round plastic discs, from the bottom of the tub. Use a spoon to gently pry the filters up and out if necessary. Look inside for foreign objects, and remove as necessary. Set the filters back in position, and push down to secure.

Move items around in the dishwasher, if the spray arm is not moving freely. Do not block the spray arm, and avoid overloading the dishwasher, as too many items may impede the movement of the spray arm.

Wipe out the detergent cup with a dry cloth, if the dispenser drawer does not open or has residue after washing. Do not overfill the detergent cup. Avoid overfilling the dishwasher, as too many items in the unit may block the dispenser cup from opening properly.

Straighten the water hoses, if water is not filling the dishwasher or if dishes are not getting clean enough. Disconnect the hoses, and clean the inlet screens to remove possible blockages. Use the recommended amount of detergent every time the dishwasher is used. Make sure that items are not blocking the movement of the spray arms.

Refill the rinse aid or salt dispensers, if error code "5" or "6" appears on the display code.
