Re: Bosch Dishwasher not letting in water

The float switch may be stuck in the up position which shuts the fill solonoid valve off. you should be able to find the float switch under the lower dish basket.

Bosch dishwasher doesn't work. water not coming

Hi Gilgol, The link below is a Bosh Dishwasher list of error codes, I believe your error code is E3....CHEERS..
Bosch Dishwasher Error Code E3
Fault Condition: Not filling with water
Repair or Check: If the water supply cut-off valve on the dishwasher is completely open but the dishwasher will not fill with water then shut off the water supply and unplug the dishwasher. Remove the water fill line and check to see if the water inlet screen valve is plugged up. If so then replace the water valve. Cleaning the screen can make the issue worse so always replace if the screen is clogged. The valve can get stuck open from gunk and therefore flood or overfill.
Parts Required: Water inlet valve

Water overflow then no water

It may be a sticking float switch. The float switch controls the level of water in the dishwasher and if it is sticking on or off it could cause them problems you have
part numbers 263834 and 263185.
Hope this helps

Have a bosch dishwasher Mod. No. SGI53A55AUSS installed March 2004. All filters clear, exit pump clear and working. Switch on washer can hear exit pump working but machine does not accept water to fill....


You said you had water under the dishwasher,did you remove the lower panel below the door and check for water in the base frame as well. Bosch dishwashers have system in the base frame that detects water in base and cuts power off to every component except drain pump till it no longer sees the water in the base.

Hope this helps

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.

Dishwasher is not giving out water

Call a plumber to check your water pipe or you could twist the tap cap back and fort. Runs the dishwasher, if no water still. change FILL VALVE this is an electro-mechanical device that opens a valve to allow water to flow.
May also be called a WATER VALVE or WATER FILL VALVE.
If this does not solve the problem , you need to change the control board.

Does sugestion solve your problem? let me know.
