Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU66C02 / SHU66C06 Built-in Dishwasher
SOURCE: leaky float valve
Teresa, the water fill is usually a timed fill and the float assy. is a safety device to cut power to the fill valve in the event the dishwasher keeps filling. ( In most models). Sounds like your initial fill is just above the float lever actuator and dripping. Check the level of the dishwasher to make sure that the water is not higher toward the front. Catriver..post back.

First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.

My instinct would be to replace the water inlet valve without even trying to prove whether that is the real problem. The valve is the plastic unit on the back wall of the cabinet that your cold water hose screws onto. I think your dishwasher takes a Universal 90 degree Single inlet cold water solenoid valve, which you can find unbranded on the net for under £10. Provided you remember to turn the power and water off before you start, there are no hidden surprises in the replacement procedure: Remove the inlet hose, undo the screws attaching the valve to the cabinet, unplug the two wires, unclamp and remove the hose inside the dishwasher, then reverse the process to reassemble. After assembly, check that the hose to valve coupling is watertight. Granted, the problem might conceivably lie elsewhere, but the valve is so much more likely a culprit, so cheap to buy and so easy to fit that you might as well change it on spec. A.

difficult not seeing the valve firsthand but if you could connect a tester to the solonoid and confirm that there is power on the terminals, then you know there is an issue with the valve. typically, if you have a leak, it to will raise the float and shut off the valve.
