Question about Bosch SHX43M05UC Built-in Dishwasher
I have a Bosch SHX43M05UC dishwasher and the water will not fill. I originally noticed that water was leaking from the door. I checked and the pump worked fine (I filled with a couple of gallons and it pumped out no problem). The pump runs continuously even when I open the door.
I believe the issue is a stuck float but have no idea where this is located or how to fix. Can someone pls advise?

SOURCE: Access to Bosch dishwasher pump
To access the pump, first bail and sponge out any water in the machine's tub. Then tip the machine over on its front, using a heavy blanket or pad to protect the dishwasher's finish. Remove the back service panel. The pump is usually located along the bottom. Good luck!

most bosch have the inlet valve at the end of the fill pipe and it has an anti-flood device.
try turning off the water, take off the fill pipe then reconnect it and see if this works.
taking off the fill pipe resets the anti-flood device

if i was at your home as a repairman this is what i would do.if your water pressure was good at the kitchen sink,i would turn water off to dishwasher undo water connection at the fill valve,and place water line in a bucket and turn on water.if ok and still not getting water then prob with fill valve.soooo you have a new valve,did you check the water pressure to the valve? if yes good because then you also flushed out that in coming water line.because[and i have done this a few times]if not flushed their could have been minerals setting in that supply line so when you turn the water back on it pushes that stuff into the new water valve screen and blocks it up also.if your getting water then its trying to do its job,it just cant get enough water and the timer times out so no more voltage to the water valve.thats a lot said but there no mystery to it.the timer allows for lets say a 70 sec fill at 40 lbs water presure ,seventy seconds up that's it .the float only stops it from flooding,too much water.it dose not tell the machine that there is not enough! so because its letting in some water that tells me the float switch is closed[and it should be]leting the voltage to the water valve.the water valve has to let in enough water then.i know i mixed up words a bit but i hope this helps you understand whats happening.God bless ,if you need more advice you can email thru FixYa tom

Disconnect the power to the unit. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher. You will probably find it is full of water. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water. There is a float that will stop the operation of the unit and run the pump if water is in this tray. Test the unit. If there are no leaks, check the drain hose under the sink. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO ABOVE THE TOP OF THE MACHINE THEN TO THE DRAIN. If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overflow into the tray under it.
If there is no water in the pan under the dishwasher there may be a problem with the pressure switch at the side of the pump housing but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.

Hi, This model could well have two systems that will let it fill. One will be on the left hand side as you look at the dishwasher which will require you to remove the side panel. Start with this first as if it is the later version then it will be in the bottom of the dishwasher which will require you to remove the side panels to get to it. The switch in the first method will be a small micro swith and the other will be a large pressure switch located in the bottom. I would think it will be the first method.
Look at it and let me know how you get on.
