I am not sure where the float assembly is. Is that in the manual as part of the dishwasher or the plumbing?

Check your float assembly. It may be sticking. Check it to make sure the shaft is clean and the float goes up and down.

Dishwasher will not fill with water

depending on the make and model of dishwasher the solution can vary. A good guess (assuming the inlet hose is connected and tap is turned on), is the water pressure setting may not be matching with your normal mains pressure. Check installation instructions for setting mains water pressure. Also some dishwashers like Bosch have special inlet hoses which detect water leakage and shut of the water inlet valve. Need to check if your dishwasher has got this feature and need to confirm the hose is correctly fitted.
More importantly check when you turn wash cycle on if you hear click of the inlet valve or not.

My Bosch dishwasher fills with water but when it comes to the wash cycle it does nothing.

If your dishwasher is brand new, then call Bosch service as they can repair it under warranty.

Water comes into dishwasher cold. why???


Welcome to FixYa.

Have you insured the unit is connected to a hot water supply line ? The water will not heat until it start's to circulate and activates the "flow switch" in the Bosch dishwashers.

If it is connected to a hot water supply, try running the hot water at your sink taps before turning on the dishwasher. If you still do not have hot water, check your hot water heater or supply.

If it is indeed connected to a cold water supply it will work, just be prepared for very long wash cycles since the Bosch machines will heat the water at a rate of 2F per could take a long time to reach 155F.

Let me know what you find out and I'll try to assist you in any manner I can going forward.

Had new kitchen so just re connected my dishwasher. Warning light to check water has come on. hoses and water going into machine seems ok but machine seems to be slow at filling. looked at filters in case...

I would remove the water line going to the dishwasher and let it run into a bucket. Sometimes on older shut off valves when you shut them off and try to turn them back on they get gunked up or dont open all the way. If you have good water pressure to the dishwasher then I would try replacing the inlet valve on the DW. Hope this helps.

Check whether water is flowing into the machine. Disconnect and check the water flow at the machine connecting end. This is user serviceable portion and no special tools required. Check the strainer submerged in to the small pipe on the machine body. Clean if blocked.

To ease matters further pour water into the wash chamber manually to a required level. Run the machine. if OK only your incoming water problem.

Finally check the inlet solenoid valve & its associated circuitry if problem persists. Take help through the authorized service provider.

There is no water getting to the dishwasher. Nothing has changed with the water line. Looks like there is a problem with the dishwasher. (Bosch Brand)

Hello, your problem is going to be with the inlet valve. Remove the panel at the front bottom of the dish washer, turn the water and power off. You will see the inlet valve normally on the left side underneath your dishwasher (sometimes on right) connected to the water supply. Remove the water supply hose/pipe and then remove the wire harness from the valve. Now you can remove the valve from the machine. Just inside the inlet there should be a screen...check this for debris. If debris found clean out and reassemble, If no debris replace the valve and then reassemble. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!! Mike

Bosch dishwasher

Good news is, this is unlikely to be expensive.

Need to sort out where it's coming from first.

Find a stopvalve you can use to shut off the water supply to the machine - there's probably one where the dishwasher is connected to the domestic plumbing. If turning this off stops the water coming in, you probably need a new inlet valve. The ones on dishwashers are generally pretty cheap to replace.

If shutting the water off doesn't stop the inflow, then the only place it can be coming from is siphoning back in from the drain. There's supposed to be either an air gap or an anti-siphon valve where the dishwasher's drain hose goes into the domestic drain. If this gets blocked/stuck, then it can cause dirty water to siphon back into the machine. Check and clear as necessary, then run the machine through on the hottest, longest cycle it's got (in the expectation that not all the water that was sucked in from the drain necessarily started out in the dishwasher).

My Bosch Dishwasher doesn't run

double check power to your plug socket ( use bedside lamp)
check fuse in plug
check water supply ( run the water supply directly into pot/bucket)
make sure door closes properly (if built in )
if built in remove and then check!

Dishwasher will not fill with water

without a brand or model number its hard to be sure, but some types have a float cut out switch inside the washer. Its on the bottom inside and kind of resembles a plastic mushroom. The top should lift up and down easily. detergent will clog it up and keep it from moving. Just clean all the soap caked on it and move it up and down to see it it pushes a little switch underneath.
