Bosch SMS 4012. Water very slow to enter machine


The solenoid valves do gum up. Replace that and it should work fine. They are not very expensive. You could try to clean it, but it is easier to just replace it.

Bosch SHX46AO60C/30 won't fill with water. Have check water under sink - it is on. Motor will run, but no water. Have tried all cycles.


Hi

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

My bosch dishwasher is not filling up with water. Where is the inlet filter?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, " my bosch dishwasher is not filling up with water. Where is the inlet filter? "... and to answer your question, the issue is likely with the inlet/water valve.

**To remedy this you will need to replace the valve, not surprising for Bosch unfortunately**


This is what to look for..i.e.

As long as your model number is indeed SHU8805 series, this info below will be accurate.

Original part is # 425458. It usually retails for about $20 - $30USD at places such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" to name a couple.

**Before attempting to repair the unit please turn off the power and the water supply to the dishwasher...safety first**


If you remove the lower kick plate/toe panel, you will see the inlet valve to your left...


i.e.

Replacing it or to check for debris in the filter/screen at the inlet is pretty straight forward. Here`s how...

1) undo the water line. ( here you can visually inspect the screen in the valve...if nothing noted, you'll likely need to replace it as follows )

2) Remove the two #20 torx screws fastening it in place.

3) the feed tube to the machine at the back of the valve and swap it with the new one.

and

Once the new one is in you should be good to go.

Let me know if you need any further assistance, otherwise good luck.

Thanks for visiting FixYa.

Regards,


Macmarkus :)

Water wants to drain and keeps trying


Sounds like anti flood system has triggered (polystireen float and micro switch) that puts the washer in pump out mode only and shuts the inlet water off. You need to look at the bottom of the washer and check that water leak / spill is not causing the float to activate. Clear the water and fix leak (pipe or pipe clamp) and this should fix the problem.

inlet valve is underneath ..behind the "kick plate" ,,,you need to remove the kick plate to access it ...just look for the water line it conects to the valve ....it would be rare that this is cloged ...it may need replace ment ....make sure the actual water is turned on from your main hot supply ....some times people turn them off and forget to turn them back on ,,,,it's located under your sink

All filters are clean, but water will not come in


Hi, Check the float in the front corner and make sure it moves up and down freely. Also, you can check voltage at the inlet valve. It should get 120V at the start of the wash cycle. If there is voltage, the inlet valve will need replaced. If there is no voltage, the float switch needs tested. It is usually the inlet valve or the float.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Bosch SHU 4000 series dishwasher; Water keeps on filling


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!

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}
