Question about Dishwashers
I just installed a new kitchen sind faucet and now my dish washer will not fill up with water, it just makes a humming noise, please help
SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher
We were told by Bosch to not use lemon scent. Use the original generic soap with NO sprakle or smell because the jet dry does the rest. Just let the soap be soap. Hopes this helps.

it the faucet connector has a lever u push in order to latch on to the faucet, just jam something under it so it maintains upward pressure and wont come unlatched when the water starts flowing

your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.
there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)
first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.
the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

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.

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description "dishwasher when turned on sounds like drain pump is running but water will not enter dishwasher" , it sounds like the emergency overfill switch has been actuated. Here`s what to do and what to look for.
**Turn off the breaker/power at your homes service panel...safety first of course**
Remove the the bottom panel, referred to as a toe panel or kick-plate, essentially the lower service panel shown here...
When you remove the outer toe panel, there will be another small panel which is non finished steel, I find removing that allows much easier access as well.
This panel can be somewhat more difficult as it secures the plastic channeling for the wires but if you observe closely you`ll see it does "snap" out of place...carefully.
Once the panel has been removed check for any obvious signs of water in the base ( the unit has a plastic overfill basin with a float which will actuate an emergency overfill cycle, hence the drain pump runs & runs )
If you don`t see any water in this area, direct your attention to the left in this basin/bottom ( from the front to be sure ) and you should see a device which will resemble a "stir stick" you`d use for coffee etc. it will be a red in color stick.
With the aid of a wooden spoon, long screwdriver, or if you can manage to reach by hand, lift it up and down gently and listen for a "click".
If there is no sign of water and you can here the "click" when lifting up and down the float actuater ( red stick ) then turn the machine back on and give it a try before reassembling the toe panel so you can observe for any possible leaks.
Let me know what you find. This is the most likely cause of the symptom you are describing so we can move forward if this doesn`t resolve the issue.
Thanks for choosing FixYa. Good luck.
