Dishwasher won't let water in

I have a Bosch SHU6806UC stainless steel dishwasher. The dishwasher goes on, but no water comes in and I believe the water float valve is either damaged or not working. I need to see a chart that shows all the parts in an illustration that also list where the parts are. Please send me an illustration of this.

This is just a suggestion, run a cycle and after a few mins of it washing, open the door and add a cup of bleach and let the washer run. See if this helps.

SOURCE: bosch exxcel 1400s express is the drum stainless

It is simple to tell what the drum is made of: if it is silvery metal-like finish, then it is stainless steel. It cannot be aluminum because the aluminum would not withstand the abrasive and detergent chemical action . It would also not be chrome or chrome finish.
If it is normal steel, it must be porcelain coated since porcelain can take the abuse necessary and also protect the steel from eroding. Porcelain will (of course) be white or grey paint-like finish. It could be a poly/pvc/plastic drum but this hopefully would be obvious and of course would also be white.
Many model come as an option of porcelain steel or stainless steel and the model number is the same except for one digit. I will assume your 's' digit stands for stainless, in either case, the silver metallic finish is the determining clue. Macgivor

How do you check for error codes on a Bosch SHY56A05UC/23 Dishwasher? My dishwasher runs continuously in the drain mode and the "cancel drain" feature does not work.

what is happenig i believe and has happened to me 2 times is that the water level float that is on the left side of dishwasher is stuck.

Either remove side panel and flick lever or pull dishwasher out and tap lower portion of panel and this will cause the level to move and then see hat happens
