Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, based on your description, 2 possibilities:

  • the intake water valve is faulty;
Dishwasher will not fill with water - 3681cc1.jpg
  • or the logic controller (Control Module) is not telling the intake water valve to open.

Of course, you could also check the float, Water level control (if one is installed), and generally the wiring, connectors and switches.

Parts are available here.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi
if no water enters the machine check these
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.

There might be something deep in the pipe blocking it or the motor might be faulty, it could also be that there is no water coming out of the taps at all.

If you have checked all this then contact a plumber to check out the dishwasher as a second opinion and also contact BOSCH if everything turns up normal!

Hope this is your FixYa! --P3NGYJ03

    Check These as well:






    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.

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.

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

Bosch dishwashers have a seperate pump for washing and another for draining. Try making it fill more than once. There is usually a timed fill and the float stops it before it overfills It also might prevent it from washing without enouth water Try defeating the door switch and play with the float during fill. There may be a sensor that won't let it go into wash. Be prepared to get a little wet if it should start up suddenly. A slightly safer way is to fill it with the sprayer from the sink. and see if it will go into wash.

If appliance fills then dumps water with drain punp then keeps filling/draining sequence then the flow meter could de faulty.

Dishwasher Accumulates Water When Off


Try turning water off to dishwasher and see if it stops it. If so, replace valve. If not check for a low drain hose loop, allowing drain water from sink to back up into dishwasher. Just raise drain hose as high as possible under sink and secure.
