Where is the water inlet connection for a Bosch KAN58A40AU/04

I don't have any pipes etc to hook up the icemaker. But I can't see where it would hook up, although I can see the tap on the lower Right hand corner.

SOURCE: Fridge Leaking water from front right hand corner

Most likely you're correct, the defrost cycle produces water that is supposed to be captured in a holding tray, pan, etc. If the pan is cracked it would leak out or if the drip tube (pipe) is not in place it would miss the pan. It may be easier to remove the contents of the small frige and tip it over some to see what you can down there. I assume this small unit doesn't have any water souce to it (no ice maker or water). Check the tubing for damage and see if you can find the holding pan to inspect for crackes, etc.

yes, get a pipe cleaner and put in to the hole to try and clear if not from the back you will find the pipe which will be clipped to a plastic tray on the compressor. unclip and blow up the pipe this will always clear the blockage.

SOURCE: Water runs out of G.E. icemaker where water first goes to icemaker

The only reason for the loops is so that you can move the refrigerator out. The loops act like an accordion allowing the unit to move in and out without kinking the line.
You probably have some ice frozen in the icemaker where the water comes in. If this is the case, remove the icemaker and thaw it out and try again.
You need to make sure there is enough water getting to the fridge. Inadequate water fill can cause this to happen. I am curious as to why you changed the water line. Was it leaking or some other problem?
Make sure the water line is not kinking behind the fridge when you have it pushed into place.
If you need more help, please post the complete model number so I can look it up and I will see what I can do.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Bosch dishwasher will not take in water after cut off of external water supply while machine running. Tried reset


Could be a problem with the seal? I am not a mechanic but if if works when you add water to the drum (the place where the washing goes) then it sounds like a problem with the seal. Check that the washer ( rubber o-ring) is in place where the inlet pipe connects to your water supply, also check that the seal where the pipes connect to the machine (if there is a connection that can be checked).

How do I hook up the plumbing. Do you have an exploded diagram of the back panel where all the water hook ups are at.


It depends on the refridgerator. Some have two inlet valves. Basically, you have a water line from the home. Usually copper line. You also will have two places for water lines on the opposite side of the inlet valve. Sometimes you may only have one. The line leading from fridge ( if ice and water through door) will hookup to the line where you have the fridge connactor. The quick connects to the inlet valve. The second one will be for ice maker. That water line runs up the back of fridge into freezer. Make sure you place the quick connects in the right spot. Process of elimination because some inlet valves wont let you change the hoses once installed. Connect the main water line from the home. Connect both quick connects dont connect water lines yet. Push the water thru the door botton and see which valve opens on the inlet. Which valve on inlet opened and allowed water to come out. That is for fridge and other is for icemaker.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact.

KSSC48QMS01 water drips from the feed tube for the ice maker in the freezer compartment how do you access the water valve under the fridge?


Hi carey_ritche,

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

Before testing the water inlet valve, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

-->The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

-->Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).

-->Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My Bosch dishwasher will commence filling and continue to fill without entering the wash cycle.It will continue to trickle fill then discharge water into the drainage pipe and fill at the same time.Then it...


Hello Wayne, Welcome to Fixya ! You've come to the right place. The problem you're experiencing sounds like (unfortunately) a common one. The water inlet valve has been an issue with B/S/H built ( this includes bosch, thermador, seimens & gaggenau ) dishwasher's going back to the mid 90's. The part to repair it is available at most brick & mortar appliance part centers ( not sure about Aussie mate ) or you can check out on-line vendors such as repairclinic.com, apwagner.com etc. Do a search for part # 1105846 at repairclinic ( that is their part # not B/SH/ ) you'll see what I'm talikng about. By the way it's about $35. Hope that helps move you forward. Let me know if I can assist you further, or need help on how to change it etc. It's relatively easy with Bosch. Thanks for coming to "fixya" for your inquiries and please take a second to rate this answer according to my helpfulness. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

Bosch WF2001 washes only 30 degrees programmes


We had this problem and it turned out in our case that the hot water inlet filter was blocked. The pump wasn't receiving any hot water into the machine so wouldn't start on anything except a cold (30degree) wash.

We turned off the the hot water tap on the plumbing at the back, disconnected the inlet pipe from the machine, then put the end of the pipe in a bucket and turned the water back on, and saw loads of sediment spurted out.

We ran it until we'd filled the bucket, then turned the tap off, emptied the bucket down the drain, then disconnected the hose from the plumbing and cleaned the hose separately (there's a gauze at the plumbing end of the hose so make sure that's clean).

Then get some pliers and where the hose attatches to the machine there's a filter that you can pull out. Clean this out. In our case this was completely blocked with limescale sediment etc.

Reconnect everything, check it's all tightly fastened etc. then turn the tap on the plumbing back on - turn it on to a hot wash, press start ...and in our case it all worked a dream again.

All this info is in the manual if you've got one, but I thought I'd write it out in case you've got this problem and don't have the manual.

Ahhhhh... cleeean washing again! Hope this works for you. Happy go laundry!

No water going in the ice maker but water dispener


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the icemaker . Check to make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . If it does dump , and does not refill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( piece behind refrig where the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Check to make sure the fill tube that fills the icemaker is not blocked with ice , still indicating a bad water inlet valve ( slow seep ) .

Orientation of inlet pipes


I am not to sure if this answers your question but I think you are asking which way the hot and cold hoses connect to the wasing machine? if this is the case if you look on the back of the washing machine you will see stamped in the metel a H for hot connect the hot water inlet hose to this, If it is not marked, hook up the hot water hose to the washing machine and place the water temp selector to hot and turn machine on if hot water comes out you have the correct hose hooked up,if not then the cold water hose goes were you hooked up the hot water hose. hope this helps

Ice maker hooked up for the first time doesn't work.


Hi, The storage is usually on the back fridge wall near bottom. Your answer indicates the demand solenoid is not operating. You will need to check wiring connection at the solenoid, and at the ice maker plug. Best of luck.
