Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU66C02 / SHU66C06 Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

SHX46B I have a 4 year old Dishwasher that filled up with clean water on it's own and leaked on the floor. There appears to ba a float switch switch on the very bottom of the unit that runs the pump if this happens. It won't stop until I remove the water caught in the plastic base on the very bottom of the unit. Drain is clear and this machine has worked fine until now. I'm thinking it may be a bad or leaky fill valve but how can I check?

    I just bought a house with the same dishwasher and I am having teh same problem. Can't say that it ever worked properly since the dishwasher came with the house. I would rather not have to get a plumber for this, any luck with finding the problem?

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.

SOURCE: Leaking water on floor during drain cycle

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.

SOURCE: No water filling up in the dishwasher when programme set

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.

SOURCE: Power fine, but no water filling the tub

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.

Hi.
Sounds like a leaky inlet valve. Sometimes they don't seal off completely or the membrane inside it could be torn. Best to replace the whole valve.

My Viking Dishwasher is about 7 years old and it does not fill with water


The water that fills your dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with your dishwasher's filling ability.

Stainless Steel- LitchenAid diswasher will not star


This doe seem that the anti flood system has triggered. This device puts the machiene in pump out mode and shuts off the input water supply.
The device is a safety device that triggers once it detects a water leak (pipe / clamp) and consists of a polystireene float and micro switch at the floor of the washer. First check to see if the float has activated the micro switch and then dry the machiene floor and check for leaks.

I have a Neff dishwasher approx 8 years old, F light comes on and no water getting in, looked at the aquastop, undone it , checked the filter and re-conected still not working ??


Hi there,

Well first of all you can check the Water-inlet valve, 
the water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It is usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It is the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. Then you can check the Float switch, the float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it. Post comments if you need more help or information............

Good Luck!!

Thanks

GE Natulus will not fill with water


Had the same problem with ours today. That's why I got on here. My dad used a gallon jug to prime it with a gallon of hot tap water. We primed it to get it pumping, and now it is working fine. Just pour the hot water into the dishwasher and start it.

Leaking from fill level float riser Maytag MDB6000AWW


I have the same problems. I've noticed that the Electrasol tablets do create a fair amount of suds, so I switched back to powder.

I determined that the suds were rising up under the float and leaking around the shaft. Do not remove the float! I tried and broke the float trying to unscrew the nut. Fortunately, the new float was only a few dollars, but replacing the float did not change anything.

I solved the issue by placing a shallow plastic box under the float. I think it was the top of a box that candy came in. The amount of water that leaks is small enough that it evaporates before leaking out onto the floor.
