Question about Bosch 24 in. SGS43C12 Classixx Free-Standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher accumulates water

I have disconnnected the water source and there is no new water in the bottom, so it have been the valve.

B where is the valve located? Do I have pull out the dishwasher? I guess if it's hard to fix or I have to order it from the manufacturer instead of using a generic part, I might be better off asking someone else to do it.

Here is my original questions:

My Whirlpool dishwasher washes and drains fine, but accumulates water when it is off. It takes about one day before the bottom part of the dishwasher is filled up with water. It is clean water. My guess is there is probably some problem with a valve, so even though the dishwasher is off, water continues to flow into it.
Still need a solution for this problem?

Try turning water off to dishwasher and see if it stops it. If so, replace valve. If not check for a low drain hose loop, allowing drain water from sink to back up into dishwasher. Just raise drain hose as high as possible under sink and secure.

VERY LOW WATER PRESSURE TO THE LOWER AND UPPER SPRAY ARMS. FILLS AND EMPTIES NORMALLY


Hello there:
i will post this solution in 2 separate post due to the length of it ok
Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. Dishwasher Water Inlet Valve Replacement

Be sure to read and understand any instructions that come with the new water inlet valve.

ools required:

Adjustable wrench

Multi-Screwdriver

Pliers

Step 1. Disconnect the dishwasher from its power source.

Note: Dishwashers are usually wired directly to the home's electrical system. To disconnect the power, switch off the circuit breaker or remove the fuse for the electrical circuit the dishwasher is attached to. Try to turn the unit on after disconnecting the power to be sure you were successful.

My dishwasher isn't taking in water, i've checked that the water is switched on and my inlet hose is not blocked, any ideas?


You don't state a brand or model number, so this is a bit generic: Look for a float switch which may be hanging up from accumulation of gunk on it. (generally an upsidedown plastic can shaped thing on the bottom of the dishwasher tub. (you have to take the cover off to get to the float) Another possibility would be a bad water inlet valve. (electrically open coil on valve)

THE UPPER TRY DOES NOT GET CLEAN, THE SPRAY ARM ON THE BOTTOM OF THE UPPER TRY AND THE SPRAYER AT THE TOP DO NOT TURN?THE WATER THAT COME SOUT AT THE BOTTOM IS WEAK ? WHY?


It could be that your dishwasher is not getting enough water. Let the water fill the dishwasher, set the spray arms in the same direction. Add a large pot of hot water and run the dishwasher. Open the door and check to see if the spray arms have moved. If they have moved, replace the water inlet valve.
Remove the 4 screws holding the lower kick panel. Remove kick panel. Locate the water inlet valve. This is the electrical valve where the water pipe hooks into the dishwasher. Shut off the water to the Dishwasher and electrical to the dishwasher. Disconect the 2 wire plug at the water inlet valve. Disconect the water supply to the dishwasher at the valve and disconect the rubber hose attached to the valve. Install new valve and test machine.
I hope this helps.

Kenmore dishwasher is not washing properly and leaving dirty water in the bottom when it is finished, Can i fix it?


If your washer is overfilling, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Maytag Quiet Series 200 Dishwasher Leaking Internally


two possible sources of water
either
inlet valve leaking. turn water off after use and if no water accumulates, then cause is leaking valve
or
if drain is plumbed in to a spigot on the sink trap, then every time you empty water from the sink, some of it goes down to the washer
cure by taking the drain hose up as far as possible under the sink in a swan neck
