Question about Dishwashers
This is a Bosch dishwasher. Everthing seems to be running and sounds fine. However, it is not filling up with water. The water supply is on. Also if I pour water into the dishwasher the pump works. Maybe there is a valve that is not opening??? Thanks for your assistance.
Go to the back of the machine, where the main water inlet connects. The connection there is the inlet valve that should open when you switch the machine on. Usually you have to remove the machine outer casing to get to the valve. The valves are quite cheap. Cheers, Derek.

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.
If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more informatiion.
