Question about Bosch SHU4006 Dishwasher

1 Answer


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 test, remove power and slowly open main water supply and 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.

Bosch SHE44C06UC/22 won't fill with water even though you hear water running somewhere.

Check to make sure there is no residual water underneath the unit, they have a flood sensor and if it is picking up water in the motor area it won;t run.

Check that your supply faucet is open, Check if there is a screen in the supply line, these can become blocked due to scale deposits from the mains. If there is no screen check that the inlet solenoid valve has not got blocked. If none of the above help, check that there is power getting to the solenoid valve when the machine is supposed to be on the fill cycle. If no power is betting to the valve, the timer might ba faulty. (You can try hand filling the machine and see if it goes through a cycle, at least up to the rinse stage, this will tell you if the timer control is working).
If you feel that there is water not being pumped out, remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Following the wash cycle with my Miele G464SC

sounds like you mean when the unit is running you are getting water dripping from the bottom of the door panel. if you remove the door panel at the bottom where the door hinges you will find an overflow tray which runs the width of the door. This is probably blocked with food deposits.

If not you may be using too much detergent. try running with no detergent and see if there are any leaks.if you open the door mid cycle the water level shouldn't be any higher than the bottom spray arm. hope this helps

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.

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve....

I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwasher supply line should be connected to the left water pipe.
Regardless, the water temperature doesn't fully explain the symptoms, especially the detergent left in the door (assuming you're using fresh detergent and it's not caking in the door prior to washing).
I would check the blades again. Even thought they may appear clean, there may be debris in them that get forced into the openings during operation, but fall away from the openings when the water flow stops. Remove the blades, run water into them, then invert them to drain while rocking back and forth. If there's crud in them, you may need to do this several times.

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.
