Bosch SHU3036UC not filling with water

I noticed my Bosch 3036 dishwasher was still on much longer than usual run cycle. When I opened the door I noticed it didn't fill with water and the detergent didn't release. Power is on to the unit but for some reason water is not coming in. Tried to call the Bosch service line and they keep me on hold for hours. I should say their "lack of service" line.

Re: Bosch SHU3036UC not filling with water

Check the hose! I just cut a check to a nice plumber who fixed our problem in an embarassingly short amount of time. The hose going from our dishwasher to the plumbing has a 2-inch or so silver part at the plumbing end with an internal switch that helps prevent flooding. Somehow that got tripped and suddenly we had no water for the dishwasher. The plumber turned off the water for the dishwasher, reset the hose, reconnected it and he was off to the bank in no time.

I have a Bosch SHU3036UC dishwasher. While sitting idle - during the day or over night, it fills up with fresh water. I shut off the water supply last night and this morning it was dry. Any ideas?

Bosch shu3036uc gets stuck during cycles.


Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description " bosch shu3036uc gets stuck during cycles

I suspect the thermostat isn't satisfied when heating the water, hence it get`s hung up trying to heat in the part`s of the cycle it`s called for.

It very well could be caused by a faulty flow switch, NTC or heater as well but not very likely.

The dishwashers made by Bosch with a rotary dial timer have very few if any, issues with the actual timer or element but they do with the thermostat within the door panel.

If it ( the thermostat ) is not satisfied the water may heat but not be indicated via the thermostat, hence timer will not advance.

Here`s what you can try. If you have any hesitation or reluctance to service this yourself please call in an authorized B/S/H/ ( Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau ) appliance technician.

**Turn off the breaker at the service panel before attempting any service suggested **

  1. You will require a #20 torx screwdriver to remove the door panel by taking out the screws around the panel, except the ones along the top ( watch the edges they are very sharp )

  2. Once the panel is removed you should see the thermostat over by the detergent dispenser clipped to the inner door, remove it and test it. You`ll need a ohm meter/multi-meter plus a lighter or match to heat it up to see if it open`s & closes.

**NOTE** it can occur the thermostat can become loose and detach from the bracket which holds it in place, this too can manifest in the sysmptom of the timer not advancing.

Let me know how you make out and what you find.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and Good luck.

Bosch SHU3036UC/U11 dishwasher does not stop filling with water

It sounds as if the main program board has developed a fault - as it should come to a complete stop. The fact it kept the water valve open with the door open is a serious fault- so I would have it checked before using it again.

Most machines have a water-stop feature - so if it develops a leak - it will shut off the water. This clearly didn't happen.

Bosch SHU3036UC draining on wash cycle

it is probably going to be a grimy door thermostat between the inner and outer panel. its hooked into the back of the soap dispenser. someone would have to take the outer panel off then clean wipe away the caked grime from the thermostat and put it back in its place. if this doesnt fix it then it could be a heat assembly problem or timer problem. in that case you would need an appliance tech out

Bosch dishwashers have a seperate pump for washing and another for draining. Try making it fill more than once. There is usually a timed fill and the float stops it before it overfills It also might prevent it from washing without enouth water Try defeating the door switch and play with the float during fill. There may be a sensor that won't let it go into wash. Be prepared to get a little wet if it should start up suddenly. A slightly safer way is to fill it with the sprayer from the sink. and see if it will go into wash.

Stuck on first step of cycle (water draining). shu3036uc.

this may be due to a leak which you are not aware of. there is a float switch in the base which if operates, turns on the drain pump and nothing else. to check, tilt the appliance backwards 45 deg and see if water comes out of the back. if so, you are faced with identifying the leak which is often the main pump

Dishwasher keeps running

I have seen this several times, and all of the times it has a bad control board. usually if you take the control board out, you can see a visibly burnt spot on the back of it wher a connection has melted. Another possible slowrun time problem could be that the water coming into the dishwasher when it fills is not hot. If it isnt hot, it takes the dishwasher longer to heat the water to temp, and therfore it runs longer. Is the water coming out of your tap reasonably hot? if not you may need to turn up your water heater settings. But if nobody has messed with the water heater, or the tap where the dishwasher is attached and the problem just started then thats probably not it. Good Luck!
