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.

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.

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!

Bosch dishwasher model SHX46A why does the on/off switch and lights stay on while the dw stopped running?

The dw was not quite running. It does pause between cycles. The power scrub cycle means that you had the machine on the longest of all cycle choices. There's almost always a light and a normal cycle. The pots and pans cycle is a power scrub option. Yes all the lights would be on until they switched to a different part of the cycle. Do you have a DRYING light? That would be the one to look for as far as the dw being finished. :)

Hi I have a problem with my Bosch SHU43CO6UC/22 dishwasher. using "power scrub plus" and "regular" cycles it will continue to fill and overflow the door, after the cycle has run even...

The bosch dishwashers use a fill valve that is attatched to the inlet hose. yours is stuck in the open position. this usually happens when you have hard water, as the minerals build up on the sealing surface of the water valve. there is no easy fix. the fill hose will have to be replaced. It requires removing the machine, removing the bottom pan, and changing the hose connections.

the valve uses water pressure to stay closed. if the water pressure is very low coming in, it may not be enough to close the valve. there is a filter screen between the fill hose, and where it connects to your water valve. try cleaning the filter out and see if that makes a difference. If not, you will have to get the hose changed.

Refer user guide. There must be some instruction to cancel the program.

If you find the machine running with the door open- the problem could be door close switch or sensor.

Bosch dishwasher water won't enter for wash cycle and YES water is on

Will it do anything else?

How about if you fill it up manually? As in fill up a pitcher, pour contents into the bottom of the dishwasher until it raises the float. Close the door and see if it runs. (don't put so much in there that it pours out the open door)

If it runs and you are sure the water is on. Turn the water off. Take the inlet line off the dishwasher's electric control valve and see if the inlet screen is covered with trash. If it is, clean it off, put it back togehter and see if it works.

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 SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on....

From your description, I doubt that the problem is door latch is the cause.
The first thing that a modern dishwasher does before it begins to fill with water is run the drain pump.  It appears that this DW is not progressing to the next cycle (inlet water) and because the pump runs even when the door is open, I agree that the controller card may have failed.
If possible, inspect all the wire connections (remove main power before you do this) ... if there is a loose connection, the controller could do odd things.
Good Luck!  Please report back what you find, OK?

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.

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!
