SOURCE: BOSCH SPS5462GB/19 No water seems to

Found the problem after stripping down around the main pump area.
The air pipe connected to the pressure switch on the front right hand side is connected to a small plastic box which in turn is connected to the flow pipe that fills the machine,and the box was completely blocked with slug which stopped the pressure switch from operating and so prevented the water input solenoid from opening. Hence no water would come into the machine

SOURCE: KitchenAid KUDP02 built-in dishwasher will not fill with water

Couple of things that come to mind here... May be helpful or not - but after all this is free ifo and probably worth what you are paying!!!

Anyway:

1: Have you tried removing power from the appliance?? All these modern appliances use a microprocessor and - like MS WINDOWS - need a kick up the bum now and then - (Well.. with Windows it seems to be every day- hour -minute - or so)

2: Dishwashers are installed with water reduction valves, so there could be a problem with one of there (particularly the hot water side).

3: The water inlet is controlled by soleniod valves (read: electronic valves). If the valves are not opening, no water will enter the appliance, so there could be a problem with the valves.

SOURCE: Faulty dishwasher.

several poss faults tap turned on? if so probably the unit needs to have the meter tank and feed piping cleaned out. if this is all clean then it could be either the water valve is faulty or you have a leak into the base and the unit will not fill up when it is in "flood mode". (check this out by tipping machine to the side and see if any water pours from the base).

SOURCE: it doesn't start and clean light flashes

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

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..
http://removeandreplace.com/2015/10/09/bosch-dishwasher-error-codes-how-to-clear-what-to-check/
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.

I have a adg7560/1. the cycle starts but ends after a few minutes. the light flashes four times


Run the dishwasher through a test mode


Test Mode


Make sure the appliance is empty of water before running Diagnostics as it does not pump out before starting to fill and therefore you could overfill the appliance.
Open the door and set the program to the first program. (Normally rinse).
Turn the power off.
Press and hold the start button and while holding turn the power on.
After a little while the start button will flash, release the button.
Press the start button once and close the dishwasher door.
The machine will now run through a diagnostic routine.
Should take about 20 mins.
The machine will stop during diagnostics if an error is found and will display the error code. If no error is found it will complete the diagnostics and end the programme.

To exit diagnostics at any time just press and hold the start button till the programme is cancelled

Does not fill with water.


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Water Inlet Valve

The dishwasher has an electrical water valve called a water inlet valve. If the dishwasher won't fill with water, the water inlet valve might be defective. These valves are not repairable and will have to be replaced.

Float

The float assembly is normally inside the dishwasher near the door on the floor of the dishwasher. If something gets stuck underneath it and holds the float assembly up, the dishwasher won't fill with water. If the float assembly moves freely up and down, the float switch might be defective.

Float Switch

The float switch is actuated by the float assembly. It is a protection device designed to prevent the dishwasher from overfilling. If the dishwasher won't fill with water, it may be because this float switch is defective or stuck.

Water Supply Problem

The dishwasher is connected to the hot water supply from the house. Check to be sure the household water supply valve is turned on. Over time, calcium deposits can build up in the water supply valve or in the small filter screen inside the water inlet valve. The water supply line may need to be removed from the water inlet valve of the dishwasher, then run some water into a bucket to see if there is enough pressure. Be certain to turn off the water before working on the water line.

How to fixerr 4 its saying overfilled. to much inlet water


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the dishwasher is overfilling it's caused because of water-inlet valve going bad. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

IE input error on LG dishwasher Model LDF6810ST


Chris;
The float you speak of is located behind the left side panel. (be careful if you remove the panel, the back edge is real sharp,.... I left a pint of blood at one house !) Water enters the dishwasher fill assembly and turns a paddle wheel, which allows the control to count the revolutions, determining the amount of water filling into the dishwasher. The float is inside a chamber in front of (and attached to) that water guide and it has two micro switches at the top of the float chamber. If I recall correctly, the float is only for overfill protection, as the paddle wheel determines water amount. You should check the screen at the water valve to make sure nothing is obstructing inlet valve water flow. Also, make sure you are not using a "flood safe" inlet hose, which are designed to shut off water if a hose breaks (but can cause water supply issues). You may have a bad control board or wiring connection. On a new unit I would suggest calling for warranty service.
Please don't rate this solution, as anything but a FixYa will lower my score.
Thanks, Carl.

Kenwood Slimline Dishwasher KDW8ST2A


I have a Kenwood Kdw8st2a and have been constantly plagued by the E4 overfill error.

Lifting the front of the dishwasher and tilting it backwards seemed to clear the E4 error only for it to come back after the next wash.

I found eventually that the connection to the U bend under the sink was too narrow and was almost blocked hence the dishwasher was not emptying properly.

I disconnected the dishwasher waste pipe and ran the waste into a bucket for about 6 cycles and it worked fine.

Eventually drilled through the kitchen wall and fitted a lower direct waste pipe to the drain. Overkill maybe buit it hasn't done an E4 since.
