Question about Bosch 18 in. SRS45E02 / SRS45E08 Exxcel Slim-Line Free-standing Dishwasher
When switching on dishwasher water does not run into washer
Frigidaire dishwashers can lose their pump prime and will not fill with water if there is no priming water in the bottom of the unit. To solve this, add several quarts of water to the unit. Let it settle down in the bottom until it stops going down. Start the washer and you will hear this water pump out of the drain and the unit will now fill with fresh water.

There is a Floater inside the tub protecting against overflow. when it is pushed up (by too much water) or stuck by debris, and does not fall down to its inactive position, it can prevent water from filling. make sure there is no debris,and move the floater up and down until it falls down in its normal position. PS : there is a floor cover underneath the door, it has a repair manual glued to it on the back. you can use "diagnostics" mode by pushing a specific sequence on the front panel, allowing you to go through each cycle in an accellerated way.

This is for a kenwood elite ultrawash : there is a floater inside the tub (shape of a mushroom on right front of the bootom of the tub) that controls the incoming water and protects against overflow. if it is activated, it will prevent water from coming in. check that the floater is not in the upmost position or if it does not drop down when you lift it. the floater must be pushed down. make sure there is no debris blocking it from falling down. Ps : when i unscrewed the floor cover under the door, i found a manufacturer's repair manual glued to the back of it. there is also some kind of "diagnostics mode" that you can trigger from the front panel.

I have a GE and I filled the tub until it would not drain anymore...still didn't work. Then I took off the bottom front cover and there was a white trianlgle looking piece. I pushed it down- it is connected to a metal piece that looks like a battery and AHHHHHHH it worked!! (And no I am not techinical by anymeans- hence the non technical descriptions)

First try to see if there's a leak somewhere. Cheack to see if there's water in the pan. There's a sensor that shuts off the water supply when there's a leak. There might be a screw loose somewhere that you have to tighten. If there's no leak, the water shutoff valve might be damaged, in which case you will probably have to replace it.

Check that water entrance valve works (it is an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly 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 for a new

This may sound stupid but... make sure you have taken out the little stopper in the waste pipe under the sink! I had a new kitchen fitted, and forgot about this, and could not understand why my dishwasher would not fill up or drain. Take the stopper out and Bob's your uncle!

SOURCE: Dishwasher does not fill with water when started. Problem began slowly with dishes not rinsing completely. Overfill float appears to work properly. Water fills pipe leading to fill solenoid but does n
I am almost certain that your problem is the fill solenoid.
If it does not work, there will be no water entering your machine.
I would either remove it and test it or just replace it at this point.

Welcome to FixYa
The problem is with the float switch assembly that is bad and needs replacement. A float switch on a dishwasher is designed for one thing, to stop the water flow from the dishwashers water valve. To access the dishwasher float switch regardless of the make or model, 99% of dishwashers are accessed from behind the toe kick panel i.e by removing the front bottom access panel. When the timer or main control call for water, power is sent through the float switch wires, when the dishwasher has filled up raising the plastic mushroom looking piece high enough, the switch will stop power from getting to the water valve. That is the idea behind the switch, to further test this switch with a volt meter you can view this video: Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
