There is a chacne that the main wash motor is not drawing enough water into the pump to spray through the arms.you can try and add some more water to the dishwasher and see if there is any change.
if there is no change then you migh need to replace either the contol board or the main wash motor

Water is not flowing into the dishwasher. Initial problem was that it was not draining. It now drains but now it will not pump any water into the dish washer.


I have this same problem! Just started happening. My Bosch drains fine but only a very little water is entering the unit and it seems to be coming thru the arms on the bottom not the top. Help! I checked the arms and they are clear, drain is clean.

There are two hoses coming from my Bosch SHE45M06UC dishwasher. One is obviously the drain coming from the back of the unit, and the other is attached to the side looped and not connected to anything. I...


Many people realize the dishwasher connects to a little hose on the sink, it is called an air gap. However, many people wonder " The air gap is there to prevent the water from being siphoned out of the dishwasher. When water flows through the drain hose, it creates a suction on the water still in the dishwasher. The air gap, makes a hole for air to get in. That way, the water only leaves the dishwasher when it supposed to, when it is pumped out. Another benefit of an air gap is that if the drain hose becomes clogged, the dishwasher can still pump out the water. Instead of flowing through the hose, as it should, it can flow out the air gap and into the sink.
The dishwasher's drain line usually connects to an air gap mounted at the countertop level on the sink. The drain line continues from the air gap to either the garbage disposer or directly to the sink drain. If the drainage hose between the air gap and the drain is partially or completely blocked, wat

The dishwasher fills with water when it it off.


The problem is the water inlet valve has failed. This is inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video that will walk you thru replacing this.

Bosch Dishwasher SHU3032 - pump will not shut off.


Kill power to the unit. Access bottom of unit removing the kick plate. Hard to see under the machine but you will find that water is collecting in the white plastic pan under the unit. Stick a corner of towel in where you see water to soak up the water. When all the water is out, turn the water pressure down on your supply line to almost nothing. Adjust this pressure by turning the hot water on at your sink and adjusting it down by half. This will allow you to use your machine until you can replace your water valve on the dishwasher. The valve is allowing too much water to come into the machine and over flowing at one of the inlet components.

Bosch Dishwasher pump keeps emptying


Disconnect the power to the unit. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher. You will probably find it is full of water. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water. There is a float that will stop the operation of the unit and run the pump if water is in this tray. Test the unit. If there are no leaks, check the drain hose under the sink. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO ABOVE THE TOP OF THE MACHINE THEN TO THE DRAIN. If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overflow into the tray under it.

If there is no water in the pan under the dishwasher there may be a problem with the pressure switch at the side of the pump housing but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.
