Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Water is not filling into dishwasher. Everything sounds like it is running ok and water supply is on.

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.

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..
http://removeandreplace.com/2015/10/09/bosch-dishwasher-error-codes-how-to-clear-what-to-check/
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.

The water supply line to my Bosch dishwasher (model # shx46a06uc/21) froze. We didn't realize this and tried to run the dishwasher. Now the line is unfrozen, but the dishwasher still won&#


Check for water supply to the valve. Check for 120vac at the valve during fill cycle. If you have both, the water inlet valve is bad, part number 00425458.

Hi

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...

No water in the dishwasher Bosch SHX43M02-48. We turned of the water and forgot to turn it back on and ran the dishwasher. Now the it will not let water in?


Hi, By the information you've supplied, I'd guess you burnt out the coil in the water/fill valve by running it without a water supply to the valve. Are there any other unusual symptom's or error codes ? i.e. drain pump running none stop ? Can you put water into the tub manually and run a rinse cycle without issue ? In any event the valve is pretty inexpensive, usually about $30 or so. The part # 425458 works on all bosch, thermador, gaggenau, and siemens dishwasher built since the early to mid 90's up to present day. Hope this was helpful to you. Thanks for visiting "fixya" today. Good luck. macmarkus :)

Bosch dishwasher not taking in water


May be open circuit water valve. Appliance will go to error mode if water level has not reached a certain height after a preset time. Check coil continuity with a multi meter. Should be looking for about 200 ohms.
