    Sit in front of the machine. Take your right hand and put your palm up to the plastic apron in front to the far right. Bend your fingers to a 90 degree angle. Extend your arm unti you feel the metal against your finger and nails. Exactly 6 inches from the right, you will feel a rubber cover that covers a small metal spout. Before you remove the cover, place a shallow plate underneath. I needed a rubber grippy jar opener to get the cover off. Once you get the few ounces of water out of the bottom, it will operate without issue.

Hoshizaki water dont stop runing

float switch is stuck in the "down" position. The unit goes thru a fill cycle and after 1 minute, the board "Looks" at the float swith to "see" if the sump is full. If float is stuck down, it tells the board that the unit does not have enough water and stays in the fill cycle. The compressor will not come on as long as the machine "thinks" there is not enough water. let me know if I can help further

Heater quit working runing hot no water in

Fill it up, run until it's hot and see if you see anything coming out of the water pump. I don't think the heater has anything to do with the running hot problem. The heater valve may need replaced or freed up. Good luck!

Water keep runing into the machine and exceed the required level setting. the machine will not start to washing is it that the water level in to high or does the water level setting control the washing...

put the washer on warm setting,start to fill washer,turn washer off,if it still keeps filling then you have a bad water inlet valve,if it turns off then check the water level hose from the head of the washer to the side of the outer tub,make sure both ends are on-mike

Bosh dishwater does not fills with water: seems it shuts down!

you have a leak probably from circ pump. there is a float in the base which when lifted by water, shuts everything down and turns on the drain pump
