SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher not letting in water

The float switch may be stuck in the up position which shuts the fill solonoid valve off. you should be able to find the float switch under the lower dish basket.

SOURCE: My bosch dishwasher does not fill with water (although it drains)

most bosch have the inlet valve at the end of the fill pipe and it has an anti-flood device.
try turning off the water, take off the fill pipe then reconnect it and see if this works.
taking off the fill pipe resets the anti-flood device

SOURCE: bosch dishwasher motor keeps running no water

Hola Lewis!

This is such an easy repair, you'll be shocked and surprised! The reason this is happening is that the computer or timer has detected a "flood" condition and has permanently energized the drain pump to clear the "flood".

What you'll need to fix it...
1.) Shop-Vac (for vacuuming water) with a crevice tool (like one of these)
2.) T20 Torx bit with a driver. Torx sizing here. (You can get a set at Home Depot or Lowes)

All you gotta do now is get down on the floor and remove the kick panel. Then remove the screws holding the water valve and lift it up out of its' plastic holding. Now your shop-vac w/ crevice tool can be used. Stick the crevice tool in there (about 10") and vacuum up all the water that's been trapped in the basin. (you may need a flashlight to see what's going on back in there...) After the water is gone, your DW will work fine.

Here's how it works... About 10" behind the inlet valve is a "float" made of styrofoam. When water gets into the basin, the float rises and eventually trips a "flood condition" switch. This switch shuts the unit down and will only allow the drain pump to operate. So what you want to do is get the water out of the basin.

There may be a reason for the basin flooding, though. Suds (caused by too much (or the wrong) detergent), an actual water leak from the valve, etc... So after you get the water out of there and the unit is working again, you may want to monitor it (like, only run it when someone is home) for a while just to make sure that a real flood does not occur.

Hope this helps.

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.

What does error code 01 mean on my bosch silence plus 42 dishwasher mean?


The 01 error code means that the incoming water isn't coming fast enough. This could be a problem with the water pressure in the building, the fill valve or the water flow meter. Sometimes, this can be caused by something blocking the float from moving freely inside the dishwasher tub.

First check that you have sufficient water pressure in the house and that the shut-off valve is fully open. (If you have low water pressure, find out what is causing the issue.) Make sure that the incoming water pipe/hose isn't crimped or leaking. Next, flip your circuit breaker to off (or unplug the unit) to reset the dishwasher. Next you need to check that the fill valve is opening and closing properly; check that the wiring is good as well. If that is fine, then the problem is the flow meter or the circuit board that reads the sensors from the fill valve and flow meter.

I hope this helps.

Bosch dishwasher actual runtime versus indicated runtime.


The usual discrepancies with run times is due to water heating time.
For example, your dishwasher may be estimating run time + time to heat the water from cold.
If your dishwasher is connected to hot water instead of cold, it will skip the majority of the heat cycle and adjust the time accordingly.
On the other hand for other people, their dishwasher brands may say "50 minute wash" but this does not take into account heating time, so wash can be anything up to around 70-80 minutes.

How to run self test on bosche dishwasher


Here is an excerpt from "Bosch Dishwasher Troublesoooting".

Running a Test Cycle
Bosch dishwashers have a test cycle which can be run as a troubleshooting measure. The method to run this test cycle is similar across the Bosch dishwasher range so if your dishwasher features seems different from those described below then try experimenting, as the process is fairly straight forward and will be very similar. Bosch dishwasher model numbers are usually found around the top or lip of the door. One of the most common differences between dishwasher models is simply the names of the buttons. For example in the first example below, POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH may be called WASH and ECO depending on your dishwasher model and the country you are in. The other key difference is whether your dishwasher has a display panel (which can display error codes) or not (in which case a program light will illuminate to tell you the fault.
To run the test cycle hold down the POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH buttons. Whilst held down press the ON/OFF button. The lights above them should flash. Now you can check the status of each dishwasher program by pressing its button. Now you can run the full test cycle = Press the POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH buttons again. The dishwasher will start up and when the cycle has ended one, if you have no display panel on your dishwasher model the indicator lights will illuminate if a malfunction was detected as follows -
CLEAN - A temperature sensor fault. If this is the case then the test cycle will be very short as the dishwasher will terminate the test once it's been detected.
RINSE/DRY - A water sensor/filling fault. If this is the problem then the test cycle will not complete as the dishwasher cannot detect the right level of water, the dishwasher will just keep filling and draining again.
WASH - A heating fault. Check your heating element.
If you do have a display panel on your Bosch dishwasher then after the cycle is complete an error code will be shown if a fault has been detected. The error codes are as follows -
0 - No errors have been detected.
1 - A water sensor/filling fault.
2 - A heating fault.
4 - A water filling fault. This can also appear as F on the display during a normal cycle.
8 - A temperature sensor fault.
When troubleshooting your Bosch dishwasher, running the above test cycle is a good start in diagnosing the problem and should give you an idea of where the problem lies with your Bosch dishwasher and what fixes and repair are in order. Our general troubleshooting page will give you some ideas on other things to check on your dishwasher. Good luck!

Our Bosch dishwasher has water filling back in bottom of dishwasher after cycle is complete. You can empty dishwasher and no water will be in the bottom, but several hours later the water has filled the...


Check the drain line underneath the sink.
It should be suspended just below the counter top.
If it is too low,water from the sink will back fill into the dishwasher.
If the drain is OK,then the dishwasher water valve is defective.
