Bosch shu53 dishwasher fills slowly with water when turned off

I have a Bosch SHU 53 dishwasher & recently replaced the control board, It previously had the problem of counting down to 1 minute then not draining. That problem was fixed with the replacement of the control module. However it now seems to fill slowly with water when turned off & leaks all over the floor.
I ran the self test & did not get any fault codes.

    Problem solved....after watching the water slowly fill when the unit was not plugged in, I knew there had to be water leaking past the inlet valve. I replaced the valve. Problem solved. Fixed for less than $25. thank you, Bill

Certainly sounds like the float is stuck in the over filled position or possible a bad float switch. Could also be a bad water fill valve - if you can blow air through it when removed then you need to replace it. You can follow this link to troubleshoot your washer, but note that its not exactly for your model - http://www.thermador.com/replacementparts/main/pdfs/SHU-complete-troubleshooting-guide.pdf Good luck!

SOURCE: Bosch SHU43C

My SHU43C is just over 3 years old. I had a similar problem recently. First, there were a few floods. Then, the Bosch only drained non-stop. Even when I used the Cancel Drain buttons the drain pump would run without stopping. When I tried to run one of the cleaning cycles, no water entered the machine. Corrective: I removed the base plate, and saw that the red plastic floatation device was in the up position. Using a flashlight and a wooden spoon, I lightly toggled the red float stem down. I pushed regular clean cycle and kept toggling with the red float stem until the rinse water started to enter the machine (turning the red stem seems to also actuate a step in the program). Now the dishwasher runs normally. Voila!

Take off the front panel (10 little screws, two shims will fall out) and you'll see the two handle bolts on the inside of the panel. Tighten 'em; reinstall the panel (good luck figuring out how the shims go back...)

There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, but your problem is likely not related. I have written a guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

SOURCE: Bosch SHU 8805 upper arm is getting no water.

replace the upper water arm conduit and wash arm hub as they leak under years of pressure and the o-rings leak water and then it can't hold pressure and supply the upper arm with full pressure water,also replace the center arm conduit if it has one as this will wear out too

Bosch SHU 5302 Machine doesn,t fill with water.


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

My SHU53 only starts on 2Hr Delay and water is not getting hot


Bosch dishwashers run the heating element directly from the control module, which usually causes the solder joint to go bad.....solution, replace the control module, or take the old one out, and repair solder joint

My bosch dishwasher does not fill with water (although it drains)


most bosch have the inlet valve at the end of the fill pipe and it has an anti-flood device.
try turning off the water, take off the fill pipe then reconnect it and see if this works.
taking off the fill pipe resets the anti-flood device

it sounds as though the circulating pump may not be operating. if so fault is often due to the pump capacitor being faulty and this is a cheap part.

Bosch SHU 5300


Mine did that. I tried changing the timer but it didn't help. I noticed that the water level kept rising until the drain pump would be triggered by the overfill protection switch on the left side under the insulation. It turned out that the fill valve didn't close all the way and so the pan would never empty. A new fill valve (easy to install and cheap) fixed it!
