  • Step 1 Remove the front access panel (see step 1, "Tightening the fittings"). This will give you access to the dishwasher's adjustable feet.
  • Step 2 Open the door completely and remove the bottom dish rack.
  • Step 3 Unscrew the dishwasher from the kitchen countertop so the dishwasher can move freely as you adjust the feet.
  • Step 4 Check to see if the dishwasher is level side to side. Place a small level inside the dishwasher so it's sitting on the bottom pan and facing parallel to the front lip of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is not level, use adjustable pliers to turn one of the dishwasher's front feet up or down until you hit level.
  • Step 5 Check to see if the dishwasher is level front to back. Turn the level perpendicular to the door, and place it on one of the bottom ledges that run along the side of the cabinet. Check the level again. If the dishwasher isn't level, use your adjustable pliers to turn the back feet up or down until you hit level.
  • Step 6 Reattach the dishwasher to the countertop and reinstall the front access panel.
    Fixing a leaking door
  • Step 1 Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely.
  • Step 2 If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary.
  • Step 3 Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet.
  • Step 4 Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement.
  • Step 5 Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.

    Switch dishwasher on and starts up ok but when it comes to pumping water in it stops and does not do anything else.


    Hello

    Investigate these five areas if your dishwasher won't fill with water:

    As water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. When the float reaches a predetermined level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Check your float assembly. Replace it if you need to.

    The water that fills your dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with your dishwasher's filling ability.

    Your dishwasher may not be filling with water simply because the water valve's filter screens are dirty and debris-filled. Gain access to your water inlet valve and try cleaning it out. This might be enough to solve the problem. You can learn how to access your water inlet valve in the replace a dishwasher water inlet valve section.

    Alternatively, your water inlet valve could be defective altogether. That could be the reason your dishwasher is not filling. Test it for continuity. If it is not functioning as it should, replace it.

    Your dishwasher's drain valve is regulated by a drain solenoid. If the solenoid is malfunctioning, it may not allow the drain valve to funtion properly, which in turn could be the reason your dishwasher is not filling with water. Investigate your drain valve and test the solenoid. If the solenoid is faulty, replace it.

    Hi


    Check for any kind of leaks around lower spray arm or soap door. Replace the arm if any cracks are found. Also make sure that door latches firmly, and the gasket is not cut.
    The leak can also happen due to a broken fill valve. To check, take off the access panel from the front of the dishwasher so you can reach the fill valve attached to the metal bracket. Use a multimeter to check the continuity across the two black terminals at the top of the fill valve. If it reads 120 V, replace the fill valve. Make sure the thin filter screen between the bracket and fill valve is not blocked by debris.


    Please post back for any further assistance.

    At some point the dishwasher leaks onto the floor. what could be the possible problem?


    this are the possibilities for the leak :-----
    Door gasket loose/torn
    Corner gaskets or door baffle/vent gasket
    Door lock/latch loose/broken
    Split spray arm
    Over filling with water...usually the level is just under the heating element is normal
    Something leaking through the door...like the soap or rinse agent dispenser gasket, silverware basket button.
    Door hinge(s) bent
    Wrong soap was used...dish sink soap instead of dishwasher soap
    Rinse aid being used with mechanically softened water ( makes foam or suds inside the dishwasher )

    Leaks from under the unit:
    Look for whiting or calcium stain on the motor and pump assembly = motor and pump assembly seal leak...access panel removal help
    Hose for upper spray arm split
    Fill hose split or fill hose spout air inlet is calcium covered
    Drain hose is split
    Rusted liner...metal liners only
    Fill valve leaking or allowing water to fill all the time
    Heating element ends....where they come out through the dishwasher liner
    Float or float gasket.

    Dishwasher will not take in water


    On bosch dishwasher if the base senses a water leak the unit will not fill & the drain pump will come on. I recommend checking for water in the base & locating the source of the leak if you see water in the base. Other possibilities; fill switch, water level switch or water valve. There is no reset for this problem.
