Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU66C02 / SHU66C06 Built-in Dishwasher
Since the plumber unclogged the kitchen sink, water doesn't go into the dishwasher. The unit turns on & runs, but no water enters the DW on any cycle. The plumber did drain the unit after he fixed the sink, by holding 2 of the control buttons on the front, but he didn't do anything inside the DW.
Bosch SHU43C05UC purchased 10/2003
I checked the water-in line to make sure it was open, cleaned the filter, reseated the bottom spray arm, I'm lost as what to do next. HELP!
The flood switch is tripped. This is located under the unit. Unplug or flip the breaker to the dishwasher, take off the black kick plate under the door, 2 screws, and you will see the white plastic "pan". The flood switch is located where you can't really see it but it is on the left hand side wall and is made of styrofoam. The best thing to do is to put some rags in the pan, this is not easy because there is little room to put them, and soak-up the water that has filled the pan. Eventually you will get enough water out that the float will deactivate the switch. What you hear "running" when you turn it on is actually the drain pump, it get activated when the flood switch is tripped.

If your sink or garbage disposal has backed up into your Bosch dishwasher, and now the machine won't fill, remove all the water from inside the machine by using a wet/dry vac. Next remove the bottom plate ( make sure electric is off or unplugged because power cord is on th right front side) and use your wet/dry vac and paper towels to remove all the water that has accumulated in the bottom area because of the backup. If you remove the water and dry this area out, the float will reset and the machine will fill. Be patient and be persistent and this solution will work.

I had the same problem with my Bosch dishwasher. It was the water inlet valve and not the float. I installed it myself without much difficulty. It's a $35 part.
