Question about Bosch 24 in. SHX33A02 / SHX33A06 Free-standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

No Power I have a bosch shx33 dishwasher. I just replaced the water valve because of a leak and now I can't start the dishwasher. It's like there is no power to the unit. I know there is power because I get a shock if I touch the two wires that are connected to the water valve. Is there another trip switch or something somewhere?

    Yes the water is on. I can't get the machine to turn on. No lights come on and you can turn it on. The main power switch to the machine is on but the lights on the machine don't come on.

    Sorry. I didn't mean to rate you bad. I thought I had to do that to get another response. I'm new to this site and do appreciate your help. I guess the water could have leaked into the circuits but it's doubtful. The machine does not click and I checked the house fuses and they all are OK. It almost seems like power is getting to the machine but it still shows no sign of life. Not sure what you mean by "If you are in the states then is it possible to get a shock off either poles of the mains?
    If this is the case then a break in the circuit i.e. fuse would not always make the machine dead to earth."

First let me say that using parts of your body to test for mains electriciy is a VERY VERY bad idea. You are lucky you are not dead. Please do not touch live parts again, get a multimeter or a mains tester. If there is mains across the water valve then it should have opened (making a click sound), are you sure you turned the water outlet back on?

    Sorry to see you rated me as not helpful before we have finished the process of fault finding.

    Could you provide some more information, did you hear the click?

    A couple more thoughts, is it possible that water leaked into the control circuitry?

    If you are in the states then is it possible to get a shock off either poles of the mains?
    If this is the case then a break in the circuit i.e. fuse would not always make the machine dead to earth.

    Let me know so that I can help you reach a better conclusion.

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.

Bosch dishwasher will not take in water after cut off and restore of external warm water supply. Pump runs, aqua stop slightly warm and red tap /faucet signal comes on. Tried tilting.

your dishwasher is leaking water. the bottom or base of the unit is like a big catch pan, the pan has a water sensor witch is two metal contacts positioned just over the bottom of the pan. As water from a leak begins to fill the pan and makes contact with the two metal tabs it opens the circuit to a cut off switch at the water inlet valve. Slide the unit out from the cabinet just far enough to access the sides, about 20 inches, As water is removed from the panand no longer making contact wit the water sensor power will be restored to the inlet valve, Now you begin looking for the source of the leak, You may need to start a wash cycle, this is why the unit needs to remain connected. The source of the leake will dictate what needs to be disconnected and position of the unit. Something like the water level sensor can be replaced without fully uninstalling the unit.

We have a bosch 9925uc dishwasher and water keeps leaking into the dishwasher. How do I fix this?


Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, " water keeps leaking into the dishwasher "... and to answer your question, the issue is likely with the inlet/water valve.

**To remedy this you will need to replace the valve, not surprising for Bosch unfortunately**

This is what to look for..i.e.


As long as your model number is indeed correct, this info below will be accurate.

Original part is # 425458. It usually retails for about $20 - $30USD at places such as "" "" to name a couple.

**Before attempting to repair the unit please turn off the power and the water supply to the first**

If you remove the lower kick plate/toe panel, you will see the inlet valve to your left...



Replacing it or to check for debris in the filter/screen at the inlet is pretty straight forward. Here`s how...

1) undo the water line. ( here you can visually inspect the screen in the valve...if nothing noted, you'll likely need to replace it as follows )

2) Remove the two #20 torx screws fastening it in place.


3) the feed tube to the machine at the back of the valve and swap it with the new one.


Once the new one is in you should be good to go.

Let me know if you need any further assistance, otherwise good luck.

Thanks for visiting FixYa.

Bosch SHU 4000 series dishwasher; Water keeps on filling

The inlet valve will be at the dishwasher end of the (hot) water inlet line. On this dishwasher I ~believe~ the inlet valve is near the rear of the unit. That means that you will need to pull the dishwasher out to get to it. Remove power from the dishwasher as soon as you can before messing with the unit.
Just past the connection of the supply hose and the connection on the dishwasher, there will be the valve (a solenoid valve with two wires coming out of it.) That is the little beast that has most likely failed.
Good Luck!

Bosch dishwasher---water filling from the bottom when off?

i would replace the inlet valve. it sounds like it is not closing all the way

Bosch water fill

That part sounds like a solenoid valve which opens to let the water in when it recieves electric power. It behaves like a magnet, so put a metal screwdriver on the solenoid area and it will feel like a magnet, therefore it is in the open position. If this is ok but still no water the float switch may have lifted due to an internal leak, check if there if water in the base of the unit.

There is no easy repair on a Bosch dishwasher. I guess Bosch figured it would run forever. To replace anything (except the wash motor start capacitor) you will have to remove the dishwasher, flip it upside down to do most repairs.

Power fine, but no water filling the tub

difficult not seeing the valve firsthand but if you could connect a tester to the solonoid and confirm that there is power on the terminals, then you know there is an issue with the valve. typically, if you have a leak, it to will raise the float and shut off the valve.
