Is the faucet valve to your machine open? Better still close your faucet valve & unscrew your hoses to check the water flow & screens on hoses & machine. Clean out well. Refit, check for leaks. If this is not the problem change your inlet valve, it is easily done.

Not getting water into machine although mains water is reaching hose intake. model number of bosch is sgs44e28eu05 type si1501b


There's no water entering the machine If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these: Water-inlet valve Float switch Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it. thanks.

No water seemes to be entering the machine. It


it could be the inlet valve. that is definitely a DIY job. but first i would check out the float inside the machine. if it is stuck in the up position, no water will enter the machine. it will assume that it is already full of water. look for a small hat or cone on the bottom. make sure that it slides freely up and down. if it was stuck up, you will have just freed it and solved your problem. good luck

Only a small amount of water enters machine when you start normal cycle. I took off water supply line at inlet valve... screen is clean, water preasure is fine.


You might have a bad water inlet valve, when triggered the inlet valve opens up to allow water to enter the machine, it's usually located behind the lower kick plate in either the right or left hand corner, if it's defective it would need to be replaced, or you could have a float switch stuck in the up position, when water enters the machine it raises up, when the float switch is triggered it then shuts the water inlet valve off, it's usually located at the bottom of the tub, you can check this by raising it up and down to see if it'stuck, good luck.

The dishwasher make noise but no water is comming out


Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,


here are a list of the four most common reasons for this problem!

Defective Timer
The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a vol/tohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician.

Defective water inlet valve
If there is 110v across the two wires on the water inlet valve when the machine is set to fill, the valve should open and the water should enter into the machine. If the water does not enter, the valve is defective.

Float Switch
The float switch allows water to enter into the machine to a point where the float will rise up off of the switch and disconnect power to the water inlet valve. If the switch is defective or the float is stuck in the up position, the water will not enter into the machine.

Water Source Turned Off
Check to ensure the water source is turned on and water is getting to the water inlet valve.

You said, The water is not coming into my dishwasher, you have checked the inlet pipes etc and the water is going through them, just not making it into the dishwasher

What is the BRAND and MODEL Number and year of your dishwasher. Model can be found on sticker inside.

Did you turn off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes to see if it resets the system?

Here are four things to check for this problem!

No water going to feed machine


There's no hot water Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests:

  • Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.


  • Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.


  • Is there hot water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, completely replace it.

There's no water at allIf there's no water at all, make these checks:

  • Is there water getting to the machine?


  • Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?


  • If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown?


  • Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.

    The machine is not taking any water in


    First check the water supplies at the back of the machine.
    That is either a problem wit the inlet valve , or with the water level switch.

    See the following suggestions from Repairclinic:

    There's no water entering the machine If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

    Water-inlet valve
    Float switch
    Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

    Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher.
