Bosch dishwasher---water filling from the bottom when off?

It appears our Bosch dishwasher has a slow leak, where water appears to be gathering in the bottom of the dishwasher to the point where if we don't use it for 24 hours, the whole bottom of the dishwasher will be filled with several inches of water. Any help would be appreciated!

Water overflow then no water


It may be a sticking float switch. The float switch controls the level of water in the dishwasher and if it is sticking on or off it could cause them problems you have
part numbers 263834 and 263185.
Hope this helps

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.

Check the drain line underneath the sink.
It should be suspended just below the counter top.
If it is too low,water from the sink will back fill into the dishwasher.
If the drain is OK,then the dishwasher water valve is defective.

My bosch dishwasher will not fill with water. I have manually filled it but it just pumps it out when I switch it on.


the unit is going into drain mode. check your hose for leaks. when water leks in the base of the unit the float switch is activated and the unit will stay in drain mode until the water is removed. check float by removing side panel and look into bottom base for water.

Dishwasher will not take in water


On bosch dishwasher if the base senses a water leak the unit will not fill & the drain pump will come on. I recommend checking for water in the base & locating the source of the leak if you see water in the base. Other possibilities; fill switch, water level switch or water valve. There is no reset for this problem.

Turns out that the dishwasher had a leak in the bottom. No water could be seen leaking out because Bosch machines have a cut-off valve that means if a tray in the bottom of the machine fills up with water, the float valve doesn't allow anymore water into the machine. we worked this out after we tipped the machine slightly, water ran out, when we put it back down and started it the inlet valve worked until the bottom had filled with water again.

New machine for us! However, not a critism of Bosch. We use our machine at least two or three times a day and have done for the last 5 years.

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.
