SOURCE: Bosch SHU4300 Water Fill Issue.

Similar problem for us turned out to be water accumulating in the tray which set off the float switch.  I vacuumed the water out and function returned to normal.  However, we are now facing a repairman's assertion the clay in our well clogged the water inlet systems necessitating $285 in repair parts and labor.

SOURCE: My Bosch dishwasher model #SHU43C05UC/14

open machine when running and check both spray arms rotating - you will get a bit of water out. if spray arms not rotating, usual cause is debris in the arms. the spray arms only rotate by water jetting from angled jets at the end of the arms. take them out and make sure all debris removed

SOURCE: Bosch SHU 4000 series dishwasher; Water keeps on filling

Follow-up: I was able to fix the problem on Bosch model # SHU 4002UC. Purchased water inlet valve (part number 425458) from Sears Parts Center. I required the Sears unit number from the original invoice as Sears computer system apparently cannot identify the Bosch model number. The valve is as described by meyerjr above; however it is located at the bottom front of the machine so could be replaced (not so easily) without removing the machine. Cost of part was $30.50 Cdn including tax.

SOURCE: I own a Bosch SHU3036UC not draining properly

HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher is leaking fresh water from water inlet assembly

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses. The pump seal may be defective, too; replacing this is a job for an appliance repairperson.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Hi. I have a Bosch dishwasher and model is SMS60M18AU04 and it has a E16 error code. Do you can help me about it? Thanks.


The E16 error indicates a problem with the incoming water to the dishwasher. There are a few possible causes. If no water enters the dishwasher, make sure that the water supply shut-off is open. Next make sure that the supply hose is undamaged and isn't kinked. Replace the hose if it is damaged. Check that the water level float isn't blocked. If debris or a loose item got under the float, it will cause the dishwasher to keep the washer inlet valve closed to avoid flooding problems. Test if the dishwasher runs properly after checking the hose, opening the shut-off and cleaning under the float.

Check that the anti-flood switch hasn't detected a leak under the washer. This will also prevent the washer inlet valve from opening. Make sure that there are no blockages in the spray arms or between the pump and the spray arms.

If the above items are not causing the problem, then the inlet valve may have failed in the closed position. Replace the valve. The other possibility is that the door closed switch fails to detect that the dishwasher is closed. Checking this switch requires opening the inside of the door panel. If it is faulty, you'll need to replace it.

Some of the parts for the SMS60M18AU04 are available here: http://spares.bigwarehouse.com.au/index.php?cPath=80712_80715_103636 .

I hope this helps.

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.

Letter F appears on screen, and dishwasher does not start. Sounds like pump runs for a bit then stops. Door is closed. What is wrong?.


Hi

Error code F indicates that dishwasher control has detected a fault with dishwasher filling. This is due to faulty water inlet valve. Please check for clogged water inlet valve. Water inlet valve part#35

Water seems to fill in the dishwasher when it is off


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, "water seems to fill in the dishwasher when it is off "... the issue is likely with the inlet/water valve being stuck "open".

To remedy this you will need to replace the valve, not surprising for Bosch unfortunately.


i.e.

e601791.jpg
As long as your model number is indeed SHU3036 series, this info below will be accurate.

I say not surprising because this part has been an issue for the B/S/H/ built machines in the past and as a result the original part number 189553 now substitutes to 425458. It usually retails for about $20 - $30USD at places such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" to name a couple.

**Before attempting to repair the unit please turn off the power and the water supply to the dishwasher...safety first**


If you remove the lower kick plate/toe panel, you will see the inlet valve to your left...


i.e.

7d9ad1d.jpg

Replacing it is pretty straight forward. Here`s how...

1) undo the water line.

2) the two #20 torx screws fastening it in place.

3) the feed tube to the machine at the back of the valve and swap it with the new one.

and

Once the new one is in you should be good to go.

Let me know if you need any further assistance, otherwise good luck.

Thanks for visiting FixYa.

Bosch dishwasher water won't enter for wash cycle and YES water is on


Will it do anything else?

How about if you fill it up manually? As in fill up a pitcher, pour contents into the bottom of the dishwasher until it raises the float. Close the door and see if it runs. (don't put so much in there that it pours out the open door)

If it runs and you are sure the water is on. Turn the water off. Take the inlet line off the dishwasher's electric control valve and see if the inlet screen is covered with trash. If it is, clean it off, put it back togehter and see if it works.

Bosch SHU3036UC/U11 dishwasher does not stop filling with water


Hi,
It sounds as if the main program board has developed a fault - as it should come to a complete stop. The fact it kept the water valve open with the door open is a serious fault- so I would have it checked before using it again.

Most machines have a water-stop feature - so if it develops a leak - it will shut off the water. This clearly didn't happen.

Bosch SHU3036UC draining on wash cycle


it is probably going to be a grimy door thermostat between the inner and outer panel. its hooked into the back of the soap dispenser. someone would have to take the outer panel off then clean wipe away the caked grime from the thermostat and put it back in its place. if this doesnt fix it then it could be a heat assembly problem or timer problem. in that case you would need an appliance tech out

Bosch SHU 4000 series dishwasher; Water keeps on filling


The inlet valve will be at the dishwasher end of the (hot) water inlet line. On this dishwasher I ~believe~ the inlet valve is near the rear of the unit. That means that you will need to pull the dishwasher out to get to it. Remove power from the dishwasher as soon as you can before messing with the unit.
Just past the connection of the supply hose and the connection on the dishwasher, there will be the valve (a solenoid valve with two wires coming out of it.) That is the little beast that has most likely failed.
Good Luck!
