Water Pools up in the bottom of our Bosch Dishwasher

After some time of not being used, Water pools up in the bottom of the dishwasher. The dishwasher runs fine.i find that the problem stops when the water is turned off. I was told it could be the valve that needs to be replaced how does one do that without calling someone who wants to charge hundreds of dollars to fix it. Our machine expeiences no other problems. thank you Matt

    The water that pools up on the inside is clean and does not smell, I do not have a detailed service manual so any kinda how to go about fixing it would be great,

The way i find a valve on a machine ive never seen before is to follow the inlet hose to the machine then see if the base comes off or the back panel,its either at the back or at the front underneath.hope this helps.

Sure...did you clean out the bottom filter too? the valve is buried inside that machine...you'd need a detailed service manual to perform this work.

Hello -- I am having issue with this dishwasher! Water pools at the bottom and dishes are not getting clean!!!


Your pump is worn out. Time to get it to a repair man or get the manual out and if you feel handy be ready for some major expense and time.

I have a Bosch dishwasher model SHU66. Clean water slowly pools in the base when the dishwasher is not in use. We need to drain the DW every 12 hours or water will overflow onto the floor. Is this an isue...


IT SOUND LIKE IT IS A WATER VALVE ISSUE.DRAIN AND CANCELTHE MACHINE FIRST THEN TRY TO SHUT OFF THE WATER GOING INTO THE MACHINE PROBABLY UNDER THE SINK. SEE IF THE WATER IS STILL COMING IN TO UNIT. IT SHOULD NOT BE. THEN TURN ON WATER IF THE WATER STARTS TO FILL MACHINE THEN CHANGE THE WATER VALVE.

Our dishwasher pools with water and this a.m. there was water all over our hardwood flooring. I drain the water 2 - 3 times a day. We moved in this house with no manual for the dishwasher.


the bosch dishwashers are known for faulty inlet/water fill valves. that is a very real possible problem, however, have a tech out immediately.

you can try a do it yourself approach with the valve. replace the valve with part number BT-425458. (your local parts depot should have it, or try an online store such as "AP Wagner" or "Sears". My shop carries it at our parts department).

*notice; The new valve should have the solenoid coil laying horizontal, the original likely will be vertical. they have a history of failing in the "open" position, letting water in even with the unit "off" I've seen many insurance claims due to this failure, especially in the late 90's early 2k's. I'm sure there are still thousands out there. I should add, other possibilities could be, one being back flow throuh the drain line (hooked to a garberator?).

*If it is only happening when nothing else is in use, i.e. water running in sink, garb. running, including the dishwasher, I'd bet on the valve.

hope that helps,

good luck

p.s. if you provide a model number you should be able to get a manual via a pdf on the b/s/h home site here, http://www.bosch-home.com/us

This is a very good web site. Thx for pulling it


It is possible the check valve is sticking causing sour water to come back into the washer. The check valve is located where the drain line connects to the back of the dishwasher. Also make sure the drain line is higher than where the line connects to the drain under the sink. Most washing machines have a loop built into the line but it helps it to drain better when the line is higher. Try hooking the line to the top of the cabinet under the sink if possible.

Have you checked your pipes at the gully trap end? Perhaps there is a blockage?
