THERE SHOULD BE A SCREEN OR FILTER between your water inlet & the solinoid(this is what lets water into your unit)if you have no filter then its safe to say the valve is done(has trash in it)& will need to be replaced.thanx for using fix-ya

There is a sediment filter (screen) in the line inlet on the back of your machine. Turn the water off, disconnect the line and remove the screen. You can usually rinse them out with running water and reinstall. You might want to install a inline filter on your main line inlet. This will prevent sediment from entering anywhere and you will extend the life of your water heater.

Why does it take two bowls of water before water gets hot


How quickly the water coming out of any specific faucet "gets hot" is most often a function of the distance from the water heater. A faucet that is a significant distance from the water heater must first allow all the cool/cold water in the lines to flow through before the hot water will begin to flow from the faucet. You can estimate that distance. look here:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/How-far-hot-water-travels-in-household-pipes-in-30-seconds.pdf

The wait can be solved to some degree with a continuous flow pump, but this uses (wastes) lots of energy. Installation of a tankless heater in close proximity to the faucet can also solve the "problem". Be sure its is capable of raising the water temp at the flow rate as you require.

Giro plus - red light flashes rapidly, tried priming with no success. Anyone have any answers?


Have you tried draining off some back-pressure. That often is what the rapid flash means. Try pushing the hot water button then opening the steam valve. A few seconds after the pump comes on to push water out, the red light should go off. If it takes more than a few seconds, that's probably not the problem. hope this helps.

Why does my dishwasher stop during cycles and the cycle light blinks?


it has few functions , so break them down to this.
does water flow in correctly . hot an cold
does the pump re-cycle water well inside . reflow lots of spray.
then does it pump out correctly an flow easily into garbage disposal , check the back flow valve for stoppage if it has one {its in the large plastic pipe right before the disposal.lets water flow but compactor garbage is blocked, it sticks a lot closed }
and is the door latch secure test it by opening suddenly is all you can do.
you might have to open the door quickly to check these items like spray or pumping.

Can you check the exhaust water hose by looking straight down the drain in the sink where a dishwasher exhaust hose is normally attached, to see if you have any water leaving the dishwasher at all? Can you remove the exhaust hose, and put in a pan to see if you can get some water to flow out? I am guessing you may have a clogged exhaust hose, or clogged sink attachment on the sink drain. After lot of use, debrea will build up in the exhaust hose. You might also consider cleaning the inlet valve filter, the collect sand from the water supply, and can clog after many year of service.

Water comes into dishwasher cold. why???


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Have you insured the unit is connected to a hot water supply line ? The water will not heat until it start's to circulate and activates the "flow switch" in the Bosch dishwashers.

If it is connected to a hot water supply, try running the hot water at your sink taps before turning on the dishwasher. If you still do not have hot water, check your hot water heater or supply.

If it is indeed connected to a cold water supply it will work, just be prepared for very long wash cycles since the Bosch machines will heat the water at a rate of 2F per minute...it could take a long time to reach 155F.

Let me know what you find out and I'll try to assist you in any manner I can going forward.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Couldnt find if this needs hot or cold water supply. Steve


The unit should be hooked up to the hot side of the supply. A lot of dishwashers have heaters, but using hot water saves them the time to heat the water to the prescribed temperature, around 140 degrees. The following website discusses this:

What sort of lpm rate would suit a normal home with fairly good water pressure


This is just what I would say for an average family of four during hours of peak usage. You should be okay with a flow rate of twenty to twenty four lpm,assuming you have rapid enough recovery. This is based on one shower at a time and not running dishwasher or clothes washer at the same time.If you are using hot water from multiple fixtures then increase accordingly.Hope this helps. Thanks

Need install guide for bosch dishwasher model smu 2042 uc Need to know if it suppose to hook up to cold or hot water?


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

The dishwasher must be connected to an adequate hot water supply.

Adequate meaning a good strong rate of flow and pressure of hot water.

That should answer your question. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Good luck.

Inlet/ outlet light on


Check under the sink Miele puts a water flow sensor meter inline with your hot water line to sense the flow and rate to the proper level there is a small catch screen on the inlet side of it. turn off your water to the dishwasher and open the line up and check that screen That would be the first step.

Dishwash cycle takes too long.


I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years no that won't help, dishwashers only use one pipe cold water, check fill pipe for kink or low water flow rate filling up,if no problems then check heater element for open circuit, then check for any blockage with water outlet / filters and pump etc well somewhere to start to be going on with, if any of above helped rate me please,
