Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher
No water coming in - changed out the water valve, no change - assume it's the float mechanism - your response to another writer with the exact problem was "Float switch is in the flood position" how do I see if that is the case and how do I resolve it if that is the problem. Do I need to back the unit out of it's secured position. If so what do I need to watch out for / be aware of .
Had the same problem. The float switch was stuck in the filled position. Removed left side panel to reval fill and flood safety mechanism. Inspection revealed sludge ( soap scum?) caused float to stick in flood/full position. The drain pump just kept trying to empty sump and no water came. Dis-assembled float assembly, cleaned out sludge, re-assembled unit and let her rip.

Is there no water coming in( hear no water at all) or no water NOT staying in ( drain motor running) ... the float switch is a safety to keep the dishwasher from flooding ...turns on the drain motor as soon as the door is closed..
I could check the control and see if you have power to the water valve.. maybe a control problem if no power..

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
