DISHWASHER WONT FILL WITH WATER

MY DISHWASHER WILL NOT FILL WITH WATER, I HAVE CHECKED FOR ANY BLOCKS AND ALL SEEMS FINE, I HAVE JUST LOOKED UNDER IT AND FOUND A SMALL LEEK IN THE WASTE PIPE JUST AS IT LEAVES THE MACHINE BUT WHEN I FILLED IT MANUALLY IN DRAINED OK COULD THIS BE MY PROBLEM. IT MAKES ALL THE CORRECT NOISES AND SEEMS TO BE ALL WORKING EXCEPT FOR THE LACK OF WATER. IS THERE ANY THING I CAN DO... WILL NOT PUMP WATER INTO THE DISHWASHER.  REPAIRMAN ORDERED NEW PART BUT IT WON'T WORK EITHER.  DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS? DORIS CRUTCHFIELD

I don't think that the problem is relates to the leaking water. Check first the filters on the inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck

Did you have a dishwasher before? If so, you must have had a sink tail piece with a dishwasher drain coming off the side. For the connection, you may have to get an adapter to fit the end of the dishwasher drain hose to the sink tail piece. Take all pieces to hardware store if necessary to get an adapter which fits. After you connect the drain hose, make sure that the drain hose has a "high loop", meaning that the hose curls up at least 6 inches above the connection point before it goes down again. This is important to keep sink waste from getting back into the diswasher hose if the sink drain backs up.

SOURCE: My bosch dishwasher does not fill with water (although it drains)

most bosch have the inlet valve at the end of the fill pipe and it has an anti-flood device.
try turning off the water, take off the fill pipe then reconnect it and see if this works.
taking off the fill pipe resets the anti-flood device

SOURCE: problem is water keeps leeking out the waste pipe

This is most likley condensation water from the coils. If you live in a damp climet you can get a lot. If you check the PH of this water and it matches the pool you have a problem. If it is very low then it is just conden sation.

Dishwasher will not fill- worked yesterday-sounds like it it trying to fill but water is not coming through-checked water valves under sink everything is in order-just no water


This seems to be that the Anti Flood system has triggered. This device detects water leaks / spills to the bottom of the washer and automatically puts the washer in pump out mode and shuts off the water inlet. The device is made up of a pollystireene float and micro switch that activates once the float detects any leaks / spillage. Dry water and check for leaks and this should solve the problem

Dishwasher wont fill with water


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

Dishwasher wan't fill with water


The water valve may look fine but the solenoid may not be opening to allow water in. You said that everything else works fine except no water supply to the dishwasher. This sounds like a bad soleniod valve. Check for continuity on the valve with an ohms meter after you start it. Be careful.

My dishwasher won't fill with water...


The buzzing sound when it tries to fill is probably the water valve. You either have a problem in the plumbing so no water is getting to the machine, trash or rust clogging the water valve inlet, or the water valve has failed and needs to be replaced.
Remove the kick plate at the bottom of the machine and you will see your water valve, it will have the water supply line hooked to it.
Post back with the complete model number from the dishwasher if you need more help. Work is very busy right now and I am not able to be online very much but I will reply as soon as I can.
Thanks, Mike
