Bosch SHU 4000 series dishwasher; Water keeps on filling

The water in this dishwasher keeps on filling in, even when the door is open and no power to the Dishwasher. I have to manually set the water inlet off from the Wall Valve. I read in other posts that there is an inlet valve which may be jammed. Where do I find it in this dishwasher ?

Follow-up: I was able to fix the problem on Bosch model # SHU 4002UC. Purchased water inlet valve (part number 425458) from Sears Parts Center. I required the Sears unit number from the original invoice as Sears computer system apparently cannot identify the Bosch model number. The valve is as described by meyerjr above; however it is located at the bottom front of the machine so could be replaced (not so easily) without removing the machine. Cost of part was $30.50 Cdn including tax.

The inlet valve will be at the dishwasher end of the (hot) water inlet line. On this dishwasher I ~believe~ the inlet valve is near the rear of the unit. That means that you will need to pull the dishwasher out to get to it. Remove power from the dishwasher as soon as you can before messing with the unit.
Just past the connection of the supply hose and the connection on the dishwasher, there will be the valve (a solenoid valve with two wires coming out of it.) That is the little beast that has most likely failed.
Good Luck!

You can go to Sears Parts Direct and get exploded views of this unit.

It would appear to me the problem is P/N 263834 and/or P/N 263185.

It's hard to tell without dis-assembly and observation which part(s) has failed.

I too have the a Bosch SCH 402. After reading many problems
with the unit, I notice at times it did seem the dial was stuck,
hot water was inside the unit, a ton of water at the bottom of the
unit.I wonder if the unit was mixed up with too much water to start with? But even when the unit hadn't been used in days water would
pour out of the bottom around the front seal of the door. I ordered the
water inlet valve and installed it. On my unit it is at the bottom of the left side. Had to remove black metal kick plate, mounting screws that hold the unit in and the copper 1/4" line to the valve and the power hook up. If you decide to fix it yourself just hede what the other fine people suggested.
Shut off power at the breaker box and turn off the valve going to the
1/4" water inlet to the unit itself. BTW, ordered the part from Amazon
(Exact replacement parts ERP425458) it was $30 total for shipping, tax .etc That was about 2 weeks ago, no leaks yet.

Hope this helps.

I have a SHU5305us/u12 and my front door lettering got erase. anyone have a picture or a manual that tells me what each button means.


Cycle Interruption

As a safety feature the dishwasher will automatically turn itself off whenever the door is opened. However, if the door is opened quickly while in a wash or rinse cycle some water may splash out of the dishwasher. For this reason it is recommended that the machine always be switched off before opening the door.



To Interrupt a Cycle

1. Press the on/off button to stop operation.

2. Wait at least 10 seconds (or until the water noises stop) before opening the door.



To Resume a Cycle

1. SHU/SHI models, close the door and press the on/off button.

2. SHV models, push the on/off button and close the door.



Changing a Cycle

For Bosch dishwasher models SHI 6800 and 4320, SHU 5300, 5310 and 6800 press the program button of the desired cycle TWICE. For all other Bosch dishwasher models, press the program button of the desired cycle ONCE. The chosen cycle button (or the light above it) becomes illuminated, showing that it has been selected.

* SHU 3030 and SHU 3130 models do not have program lights.



Cancelling a Cycle

Each control panel shows which buttons to simultaneously push to cancel a cycle. Refer to your dishwasher to find the cancel drain buttons on your particular model.



1. Press the indicated buttons at the same time and hold for approximately 3 seconds.

2. When the drain pump noises stop and the LED display or clean light indicate that the end of the cycle has been reached, the dish

washer is reset.

3. Press the on/off button to turn the dishwasher off.

4. The dishwasher is now ready to run a selected cycle. Add more detergent if necessary.

Bosch SHU runs even when the door is open, what do i need?


Hi Jeffrey,

This depends what you mean by "runs". If the dishwasher continues with a wash cycle - i.e. circulating water - with the door open, the simple answer is that you have a defective door microswitch.

However, I suspect what you perceive to be the dishwasher running, is actually the drain pump running continuously. This happens when the anti-flood protection system has been activated and continues even when the door is opened. The simplest way to check is to open the door (while it's "running") and pour some water into the tub. If the water drains away immediately, this shows the drain pump is running and the anti-flood protection has been activated.

This may be due to water having leaked into the base of the dishwasher, but it could be as simple as a stuck or defective float-switch.

Please try the simple test above then post back for further assistance. If you're planning to investigate or repair this yourself, you're going to need a Torx T20 screwdriver and a multi-meter would be useful as well.

Regards, BElectric

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.

if you have no leaks, leave the machine alone.if you have, thats a different story.you possibly have a flow switch. close your tap slightly so as to reduce water pressure. Less water will be used.{flow switch detects amount of water filled in a determined time}

Bosh dish waher


Does it make the same noise when it's just filling or just when the motor starts? Usually just filling the dishwasher opens a valve and doesn't run the pump. If it makes noise during filling the valve may be getting hot and shorting, or may have a loose connection, or air may be in the water supply line causing the valve to bounce. If it takes a long time to fill the filter may be clogged.
