SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher is leaking fresh water from water inlet assembly


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Bosch dishwasher doesn't work. water not coming

Hi Gilgol, The link below is a Bosh Dishwasher list of error codes, I believe your error code is E3....CHEERS..
Bosch Dishwasher Error Code E3
Fault Condition: Not filling with water
Repair or Check: If the water supply cut-off valve on the dishwasher is completely open but the dishwasher will not fill with water then shut off the water supply and unplug the dishwasher. Remove the water fill line and check to see if the water inlet screen valve is plugged up. If so then replace the water valve. Cleaning the screen can make the issue worse so always replace if the screen is clogged. The valve can get stuck open from gunk and therefore flood or overfill.

Sgu 5602

If you are able to select wash programs and the panel is responding then most likely the water inlet valve is faulty and needs replacement. I am assuming you are hearing a click but no water comes through. Also check the inlet water tap under kitchen sink.
The valve for your dishwasher should be like this
However, the problem can be more complicated if your dishwasher uses water softener unit. Will need the full model number to verify this. For example SGU5602/xx

Dishwasher will not fill with water when turned on

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
The following steps require using electrical power. You assume all responsibility / risk for any mis-fortunes cause by working on this dishwasher with power applied.

The first step will require using a meter on the water valve solenoid teminals.
- Remove all power.
- Remove the lower toe / kick panel(s).
- Locate the main water supply line and follow that to the inlet water valve.
- Slide the connector(s) off of the solenoid and read resistance on meter scale R x 1 or R x 10. You should read a low resistance. If you do not read any resistance the inlet water valve has failed.
If you do read resistance you must check switch the meter to AC voltage and apply power and read for AC voltage on the teminals of the wire harness.
- Start a reular wash cycle to where the unit should be filing with water.
it SHOULD read 120 VAC.
If you have no power at the connector teminals
- Check the float switch plastic FLOAT. If the float is stuck in the UP position due to food particulate on the FLOAT stem you willnot have power to the inlet water valve solenoid.
If you have power to inlet water valve solenoid and it is buzzing / humming but you get no water there is debris in the main water supply line. You wil have to shut off the water supply and clean out the inlet of the water valve.

The inlet water valve replaement part is here:
Detailed View

This is what the float looks like:

This is the level switch assembly:

This is the actual Float switch: (3 terminal) POWER to the inlet water valve solenoid comes from this switch.

Check for s stuck float... and that the level switch is actuated as the float id lifed gently up and down. If you do not hear a micro-switch click the switch is bad. If the float is hard to move... clean it as best you can so that it moves freely up and down.

One of the above is causing your problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Just installed the dishwasher. When trying to start it, we get an E-23 message


If we are talking about a Bosch, Siemens, or other Bosch built dishwasher, E23 means inlet error. Check water inlet hose and pressure from the line. Test inlet valve. If water is getting into the appliance, test the water level switch.

Letter F appears on screen, and dishwasher does not start. Sounds like pump runs for a bit then stops. Door is closed. What is wrong?.


Error code F indicates that dishwasher control has detected a fault with dishwasher filling. This is due to faulty water inlet valve. Please check for clogged water inlet valve. Water inlet valve part#35

No water inlet on dishwasher

the water inlet is controlled by an electronic valve, which sounds like it is faulty.

Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 washer leaks

Hi. Check the doorseal by lifting the folded lip which faces toward the drum opening. Use a torch and carefully examine the doorseal. It may have a small hole which is hard to see at first.
If door seal is ok remove top of machine and check inlet valve. Turn power off and with your hand examine the inlet water valve. If it feels damp on the solenoid then it leaks from there and finds its way around to the front of the machine though the frame work. This leak happens due to to much water pressure at your laundry taps. If so install a pressure reducing valve before the water inlet hose and replace the water inlet valve in the machine as it is now faulty.
