Question about Bosch 24 in. SGS45E02 / SGS45E08 Exxcel Free-standing Dishwasher
I have just been given a dishwasher and have been told float needs replacing but do not know where to find it.
The float is the "cone-shaped" device located somewhere near the front of the wash cavity right as you open the door. You can lift up on it gently and listen to hear if the switch "clicks" on and off. It's designed to act as a cut-off for the water supply as the wash tub fills to capacity. The normal amount of water should be about a gallon or so and will fill to just below the heating element. Now, the float is located inside the wash tub, but the actual switch is located just under it and will require you to remove the bottom panel to access. Sometimes the wire connections get dirty on the switch and it will stop working. Before you buy a new switch try unplugging the connector to the float switch, clean, and plug back in. Of course, turn off the main before before attempting. If you make the attempt to clean and it still doesn't work, then the switch will probably need to replaced.
