Check whether water is flowing into the machine. Disconnect and check the water flow at the machine connecting end. This is user serviceable portion and no special tools required. Check the strainer submerged in to the small pipe on the machine body. Clean if blocked.

To ease matters further pour water into the wash chamber manually to a required level. Run the machine. if OK only your incoming water problem.

Finally check the inlet solenoid valve & its associated circuitry if problem persists. Take help through the authorized service provider.

Bosch dishwasher model SMU4052UC/14, Won't fill

you need to check the water solenoid valve. if you follow the water line coming into the dishwasher you will find the valve(first spot in the water line with two wires coming from it) if you pull the wires off you should see 110 v when it is trying to fill with water if you do then test the valve for continuity.

Bosch 4302 dishwasher

Water supply to the dishwasher is done through an electromagnet valve,located at the pipe's enterance to the machine. Test that it get power (with a multi- meter). 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 the 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 valve. Good luck
