Bosch Exxcel Auto option

My dishwasher isn't filling with water. The pipe is connected correctly and the mains water is on. You can hear the pump working but still no water seems to be going into the machine.

Thank you

    originally the machine would get stuck on the cycle at 38 minutes. I cleaned the pump and filter in the bottom. This sorted this fault but it will not fill with water. I have checked for a float in the bottom ( under the lower rack) but can't see one.

    I have the same problem can hear a click, so presume from above it is not the solenoid.
    Model no SGS3042GB/01 does any one know where the water level indicator/reader is as I have been told this may be stuck (or is this the solenoid?) How can I clean pipes out?

There should be a float switch inside the dishwasher sometimes these get hung up on the full position which in turn keeps the solenoid from allowing the water to come on. remove the bottom rack and check to see if this is the case. Dislodging the float should fix the problem. If not listen to see if the solonoid Clicks when you turn the cycle to fill position if not it could be either solonoid or the timer. if you hear click and still no water check strainer in water line could be clogged or water is turned off some where.

Dishwasher not working.... when i close the dishwasher and turn it on i can not hear any water running and there is a pool of water at the bottom that will not drain


Hello, How long has your dishwasher been do this? Have you washed dish's in it? Also, these German made dishwasher run on less than 2 1/2 gallons of water. These German manufactured dishwasher machines run really quite. Because of the German water conservancies laws. They limit the amount of water dishwasher and washing machine can use. Also, there is no storage hot water system in there homes, it on demand hot water. You can't hear the motor running and about the only thing one can hear is maybe the water washing the dishes.


Now, the water at the bottom of the dishwasher, if the drain isn't connected up under is the sink drain and trap area or the garbage disposable in the sink. but some place lower on the drain pipe. You will not have a spiffing effect on the the bottom of the dishwasher, it the same with washing machines. One the discharge pump starts sucking air, it will not drain the dishwasher. The siffen effect works if the water is below the outlet for the drain. Example: Home owner have the new washing running and continue fill with water. Why, because the drain pipe end is below the the bottom of the washing machine tub. It fill up with water and siffen action continues emptying the tube will it still filling. One heck of a water bill.

Just got a new Bosch dishwasher (forget which model). After the dishwashing cycle has ended (even long after), the dishwasher and dishes are still wet. Was this an installation problem? Thanks


Hi -
I can't see how any installation problem would cause this - if the dishes are still wet at the end of the cycle, you'll probably find the water isn't heating during the wash cycle. The dishwasher uses steam to heat the washing compartment and dry the dishes. It would appear that the dishwasher isn't heating water internally.
Even if the washer was accidentally connected to the cold water supply ** (see note), this shouldn't happen as regardless of the water supply temperature, the washer should still heat the water to the correct temperature internally.
** UK dishwashers should be connected to the cold water supply. For US installations, dishwashers are commonly connected to the hot water supply. For other locations, please consult your installation instructions.
I suggest you start a regular wash cycle and leave it to run for 10-15 minutes. Then open the door and test the temperature of the water in the base of the washer by hand. The water should be hot and there should be steam present in the washer when you open the door.
If the water is cold or only warm, the water isn't being heated internally or isn't heating to the correct temperature, in which case you should contact the retailer or Bosch Service immediately for a replacement. Do not accept an offer of repair on a brand new washer!
Additionally, do not attempt to repair the dishwasher yourself when under warrantly as this will invalidate the warranty.
Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please let me know your location and the model number of the washer. This should be laser-etched into the top of the door if you can't find it on any of your paperwork.
Regards, BElectric

DISHWASHER IS ONLY FILLING WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF WATER


The water level detector pipe could be obstructed / blocked. This thin plastic pipe is at the bottom of the washer and as it fills to the correct level of water the pressure in the pipe activates a water level switch in the washer. Sometimes the air pressure pipe becomes blocked / obstructed or the contacts of the pressure switch become burnt. You can disconnect the pipe and blow through it and the pressure switch is normally factory set and does not need adjusting. Replace it if necessary.

Removing the water level sensor it is not a difficult operation, it is held with one bolt at the base of the floater arm.

The problem is that you cannot be sure that the floater is not working unless you find out that the floater is filled with water or stuck.

There is an electronic test to verify if water level switch activated by the floating sensor is working. Instructions here: Bosch dishwasher helps.

You can find replacement water level switch , and schematics on websites below:

No water is entering the Exxcel auto option dishwasher


hello there,
If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:
1. Water-inlet valve
2. Float switch

Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.


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.

thanks for using FixYa
