Question about Bosch 22 in. SKT5102 Free-Standing Dishwasher
How to install a Bosch SKT5102GB tabletop dishwasher on a work top? Thanks
First of all, the hot water line should be supplying the dishwasher, not the cold water line. That being said, if the machine is hooked up to cold water line, the only reason why no water is coming in would be that the valve is not open. Look under the sink to see if that is where the dishwasher line is attached to the cold supply. If not there, perhaps in the basement. Open that valve and you should have water.
Finally, if there is no water coming in and you have a lime deposit problem with your water it is possible that the line is full of lime and will have to be changed. good luck with this.

You could have a blockage in the pump solinoid..if there was some plumbing done in the house...you can get small pieces of copper that come from cutting the pipes stuck in side of smaller water lines such as dish washers and ice makers... its a little bit of work but you'll have to remove the dish machine and double check that the water is in deed getting to the dish machine... if it is then you'll start by checking that nothing is clogging the pump...normally the punp is located right where the water connects to the machine...good luck

IF THE WASHER IS NOT PUMPING THE WATER THROUGH YOUR DRAIN, AND YOU HEAR THE PUMP RUNNING, YOUR DRAIN LINE FROM THE WASHER TO THE SINK DRAIN IS CLOGGED. DISCONNECT HOSE FROM SINK DRAIN AND VACCUM OUT, OR RUN A WIRE OR SOMETHING SMALL BUT STIFF TO LOOSEN THE CLOGGED HOSE. NOW RUN THE WASHER AND ALLOW SOME WATER TO BUILD UP IN THE WASHER, IF WATER ALREADY EXISTS THEN TURN KNOB ON WASHER TO DRAIN. MAKE SURE YOU HEAR WATER DRAINING IN SINK AND PROBLEM SOLVED. IF THE PUMP MOTOR IS NOT TURNING AT ALL , BUT YOU CAN HEAR IT ENGAGE, THEN TURN WASHER OFF, TAKE FRONT BOTTOM PANELS OFF, LOOK FOR THE MOTOR AND TAKE YOUR HAND AND ROTATE THE MOTOR CLOCKWISE A FEW TURNS AND THEN COUNTER-CLOCKWISE A FEW TURNS, IT WILL FEEL LIKE A DISC IN THE FRONT OF THE MOTOR. IF YOU DON'T FEEL A DISC AT THE FRONT OF THE MOTOR, THEN LOOK AT THE BACK OF THE MOTOR AND YOU SHOULD SEE WHAT LOOKS LIKE SOME BLADES. NOW TAKE A SCREWDRIVER AND ROTATE IT CLOCKWISE AND THEN COUNTER-CLOCKWISE. MAKE SURE YOU GET SOME ROTATATION WITH EITHER METHOD THAT YOU HAVE TO USE. YOU WILL FILL RESISTANCE AT FIRST, BUT KEEP TRYING TO TURN THE MOTOR. AFTER GETTING IT TO MOVE, TURN THE WASHER ON NORMAL CYCLE AND ALLOW TO RUN. IT SHOULD DRAIN WITH NO PROBLEMS. REMEMBER THIS IS JUST BUILD-UP INSIDE THE WASHER AROUND THE INSIDE OF THE PUMP AREA. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BREAK IT LOOSE. IT MAY SOUND LIKE A HARD TASK , BUT IT IS QUITE EASY. YES IT IS WORTH FIXING, BECAUSE IT WILL COST YOU NOTHING. IT TOOK LONGER FOR ME TO TYPE THIS THAN TO FIX YOUR PROBLEM. TO KEEP THIS PROBLEM FROM COMING BACK, OR COMING BACK MORE OFTEN, ALWAYS SCRAPE EXCESS FOOD IN TRASHCAN AND RINSE THE DISHES OFF WITH WATER BEFORE PUTTING THEM IN THE WASHER. ALSO PULL THE BOTTOM RACK OF THE WASHER ALL THE WAY OUT AND CHECK THE FILTER SCREEN TO SEE IF IT IS CLOGGED. IF IT IS UNCLOG IT . THIS TAKES APPROXIMATELY 30 TO 45 MINUTES, AND SAVES YOU $$$$.
