    I tried filling the tub with water and nothing happened. So sthat means the fill valve is bad and the float switch. So I should change both of the them coorect. Thanks

    No, when I manually filled the tub and tried to run it nothing happened. When I opened the door and raised the float by hand I heard a click from the float. Thanks

    Thanks for your help. But I ended up calling a repair man and he found a finish nail, a plastic piece stuck down by the motor and it would not run. Thanks again for the help and I like this web-site.

The float switch in the tank is bad,also if water only trickles in your fill valve is going bad which will not let it fill all the way to start wash cycle. Fill tub with pot of water to raise float, if wash cycle starts,replace fill valve,if not,replace float switch.

    turn power off,run float switch wires together try to start,if it wont run, the timer is bad! Make sure power is out before hooking float switch wires together!

When I push auto and start the lights go on and the time, but then it goes off. Why?


Hello. Is this unit less than 1 year old? If so, anything defective is covered under the warranty(parts and labor). After 1 year, certain parts are covered, however, no labor is covered. Make absolutely sure the door is closed properly--there is an internal door switch that must be closed(tells the main board it's okay to start the cycle) or nothing will happen and produce the exact symptom you describe. Next, the unit could be experiencing an error condition causing the shutdown. Make sure the water supply to the dishwasher is turned on(and always run the hot water in the sink before starting the dishwasher to ensure hot water gets to the unit). Next, do you hear the drain pump working? A lot of dishwashers turn on the drain pump immediately to remove any standing water in the pump before letting in fresh hot water. If the drain pump is jammed or clogged, you might hear a soft humming sound only(from the motor trying to spin) and then the dishwasher will shut down due to it detecting a malfunction. Check the float switch in the tub to make sure nothing has gotten underneath it(ex. a spoon or fork can become lodged underneath and the dishwasher thinks there is already water inside and won't fill) I hope this helps you!

My dishwasher(samsung DW7933LRABB) wont fill, it will drain if i put water in the tub. supply is on.


You either have a bad water valve, or a bad case-brake assembly (in which case you should have an error code or blinking light on your console).

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

My Bosch dishwasher fills with water but when it comes to the wash cycle it does nothing.


If your dishwasher is brand new, then call Bosch service as they can repair it under warranty.

We use well water and I don't have a stainless steel dishwasher, so the tub has gotten very dirty looking with time. How do I clean the tub?


Make sure there is no detergent in the dishwasher. Put the dishwasher in "Rinse and hold" cycle and start it. Once you hear it starting to fill with water, open the door and pour in a cup of white vinegar. Resume the cycle. You also can try using some citric acid. If all that did not help try this.

Because you are not getting an error message, I agree that the controller card is malfunctioning. Almost everthing else would triger an error.
