Question about Bosch SHU4006 Dishwasher

1 Answer

WATER IS RUNNING EVEN WHEN IT IS OFF

The water keeps running even when the unit is off. It is filling the bottom of the dishwater and flowing through the bottom of the door onto the floor. I had to turn off the water source to get it to stop. Is this a broken valve?
Thanks for your help!

Yes, a broken valve which is a stuck-open valve...to test, remove power and slowly open main water supply and observe...no water should flow.

You say it says water flowing. But, is it flowing? Does it overflow? If so it may be overflow switch on the bottom that got food stuff in it.

Water keeps filling even if dishwater is off or if the door is open, the only way to stop it is from turning tap valve off below the sink.


Your dishwasher water fill valve is defective. Remove power from the DW. Remove the bottom toe kick panel. The water valve has the incoming water line connected to it.Remove the wires from the valve. If the water stops entering you have a bad timer. If it makes no difference you have a bad valve. The valve is a replaceable part. The timer is a replaceable part.

Water won't stop running even when we turn the machine off it slows a little. i have to turn the water off to stop the flow of water.


If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Water valve is stuck open, probably by lime or calcium build-up. Proper fix is to replace the water valve. How old is the washer?

SHU43 running constantly


Intrrnal leak into base of appliance will make drain pump run constantly.
If appliance fills then dumps water with drain punp then keeps filling/draining sequence then the flow meter could de faulty.

Washer constantly fills with hot water even when turned off.


Sounds like a bad mixing valve. To verify that it is the valve you need to turn off the washer when it is filling. If water keeps running, replace the valve, Cost is under $50. for most washers.
