Bosch frontloader will not spin or agitate


You can check the following things in your washer:

1. Is the washer door or lid closed?
a. If yes, does it filled with water?
b. if no: Please contact the manufacturer to replace the door latch.
And if it is not filling properly then there is a water supply issues like: hot or cold faucets closed or not open completely, hot and cold hoses reversed, kinked or pinched fill hoses, plugged inlet screens or insufficient water pressure

I have a LG topload intellowash WF-T7516LS as soon as i switch on the machine the water fills in and then it just shows dE pls help


dE stands for Door open Error. Your door is not closed properly or the door switch is not activated. Try to press the door firmly. If the error does not go then you will have to check the door latch, notch ( a protruding part which goes inside to latch & activate door switch) & the door switch for any damage. For Top load machines the notch is near the hinges & inside the machine.

We have a dishwasher model:SHU9925UC/14. The problem is that when I run a cycle it doesn't fill up with water. Please can you help us.thank you.


Check this all causing not fill water:

  • Check that the water supply is turned on. The valve may be located under the sink.
  • Check the door latch
  • Test the door switch
  • Inspect the float assembly
  • Inspect the fill tube for kinks
  • Test the float switch
  • Check the inlet valve filter screens
  • Test the water inlet valve
  • Test the drain valve lever arm
  • Check the drained valve
The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow.

The door switch is a separate part from the door latch and is found inside the cabinet. The switch is off when the door is open. Depressing the switch closes the circuit and enables dishwasher operation. Closing the door does not depress the switch all the way. Only when the door is closed and latched, does the door fully depress the switch.
If the door latch is not properly aligned it may not pull the door tightly closed and the door switch will not be fully depressed. Unless the switch is fully depressed the dishwasher will not operate.
It is a simple matter to determine whether the door latch is theproblem. Simply open the door, close the latch and select a cycle anddepress the switch. Note that if the test is successful, with the dooropen, the dishwasher will operate and water may spray out. Make sure tofirst remove all tools from inside the dishwasher. Do not reach insidethe dishwasher during the test. Now, inspect the cabinet where the doormakes contact with it and locate the door switch. It may have aprotruding button or spike or more likely it is a hole with a piece ofmetal or plastic inside it. You must fully depress that switch. If theswitch is recessed, then use a non-conductive object, such as a woodenpencil, to depress the switch.
If the dishwasher begins to operate during this test, then you have isolated the problem. The door switch is not being fully depressed when the door is latched. There are three likely possibilities:
  1. The door latch is misaligned.
  2. The entire door is misaligned.
  3. The striker for the door switch is damaged or misaligned.
To service the door latch, it may be necessary to access it in the control panel. Access varies by model; on some models you can remove just the control panel on others you must remove the interior or exterior panel of the door.
Before removing the control or interior panel, look first for exposed screws that may allow you to adjust the latch or the strike plate. You may be able to loosen the screws and shift the latch on the door or the strike plate on the cabinet. It may require some trial and error, but you can loosen, adjust, tighten and test until it latches properly.

Good luck ;

    When you start a cycle the washer fills then turns then sounds as though its trying to empty the door lock light flashes and 2 other display lights flash


    It means your door is not shutting or latching

    Check for debris and nothing stopping it from shutting

    If not replace door latch(some parts lists call it door switch)

    its most likely not actuating so it wont advance to the next part of cycle.

    if not latch could be bad control board, id try latch first is cheaper and more common
