Question about Bosch Integra® 500 SHX46A0 Dishwasher
My Bosch dishwasher runs with door open. Our sink backed up into it and since then it has kept pumping regarless if door is open or closed. It will however turn off.
That was exactly my issue-I've tilted it 45d, emptied the tray and it works!

remove the kick plate below the door. youll see a white tray behind the kick plate. theres water in the tray thats activating a overflow switch. with a towel or 2 remove as much water from tray as possible. this will solve problem

Sounds like you already know how to fix it. The inlet valve is only held closed by water pressure...if you have low water pressure it could be causing this. Its more likely just a bad fill valve though. The water inlet valve is accessed by removinf the lower kickplate and the sheild behind that. Then all you have to do is remove the water line from the valve, remove the 2 screws holding it and pull it out far enough to disconnect the 2(possibly 3) wires and the fill hose. Make sure to mark where your wires go, if you hook it up wrong it could continue to fill and overflow. Hope this helps!

I had this problem too, I found a brilliant solution on a website, that worked, just put some towels on the floor and tip the dishwasher towards you, let the water run out and it will work again.............brilliant !!!!!

The flood switch is tripped. This is located under the unit. Unplug or flip the breaker to the dishwasher, take off the black kick plate under the door, 2 screws, and you will see the white plastic "pan". The flood switch is located where you can't really see it but it is on the left hand side wall and is made of styrofoam. The best thing to do is to put some rags in the pan, this is not easy because there is little room to put them, and soak-up the water that has filled the pan. Eventually you will get enough water out that the float will deactivate the switch. What you hear "running" when you turn it on is actually the drain pump, it get activated when the flood switch is tripped.

you have a leak,or the something has the float stuck in the open position. when water gets in the base the float raises and the uni automatically drain until the water is out of base. if this helps post a 4 thumbs up post
