Hello, welcome to FixYa. Based on your post I understand you have a Bosch SHU3307UC dishwasher, correct ? Firther to this you.ve stated "slowly fills the bottom between cycles, even with little or no activity at the sink" It sounds to me like the fill valve is at fault unfortunately. This is a very common problem for Bosch dishwashers of that era. A faulty fill valve...sticking in the "open" position either due to the plunger in the coil getting stuck or sediment inside the valve body impeding it from closing correctly...Either way you're safer to change it with the history of these valves failing.
This is what to look for...
As long as your model is indeed a Bosch, this info below will be accurate.
Original part is # 425458. It usually retails for about $20 - $30USD at places such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" to name a couple, if needed. They may be available at your local brick & mortar parts depot/vendors.
**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...
Replacing it or to check for debris in the filter/screen at the inlet is pretty straight forward. Here`s how...
1) undo the water line. ( here you can visually inspect the screen in the valve...if nothing noted, you'll likely need to replace it as follows )
2) Remove 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.
Once the new one is in or it's all clear you should be good to go.
Let me know if you need any further assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Please take a moment to rate the assistance provided here and a brief testimony on your experience here at FixYa is appreciated as well and tell your friends to look for "Macmarkus" on FixYa should they need asistance as well.
Put dirty stuff in will eventually keep a tech like me very busy. We love to come and charge you alot for cleaning your dishwasher.
Remember the Maytagcommercials where they put a cake in it?
Still got the dishes clean but before long it will cost you big time.
Just run everything under the tap.
Pot and pans should be lightly washed also.
Watch how you place the dishes. Most dishwashers spray up from the bottom. Block it, and the spray will not reach the top.
To replace the parts you have to buy a whole dispenser assemble for $100 to $200. To buy some time ... Get a heavy gage sewing needle - hold it with pliers and heat it red hot. Stick the hot end into the plastic door at the area where the plastic latch is (where it will line up with the far end of the latch mechanism). when it cools cut off most of the needle leaving one eight to one sixteenth (more or less) protruding. Use a drill and small bit to remove some plastic (or drill a small hole) on the spring latch mechanism. push the remaining part of the needle in or out to engage the hole in the latch.. this will hold awhile.
We have the same problem, so I took the door of the dishwasher apart and cleaned it up, reassembled it, and it latched for about a week. Something is worn somewhere, and it's going to be a pain to figure out and replace, so we just bought some powdered dishwasher detergent, and fill the cup and close the door. The water spray will dissolve any that falls out when you close the door, and it does just fine, doesn't leave any residue or undissolved detergent on the dishes, at least with our dishwasher, hope you have the same luck.. If you choose to get it fixed, get an estimate first. Sometimes it's better to just replace, depending on the cost of repair. Hope this helps, good luck.
It sounds like it may be stuck between cycle steps.(this sometimes happens if the washer is open during a cycle)Try and run it through one full wash cycle as it is.Then check to see if the soap door will close.If not,the lack may be broken
Door just pulls off, you will require a new door, spring & possibly a catch. Spring fits onto pin on door and other end onto pin on holder, then fold spring on its-self and re-instate onto runners/slide. Paul Winn Appliance Services. (Cumbria)
The opening of this dispenser is controlled by a wax motor for release. If you are unable to keep the latch shut you are probably looking at the spring and latch assy. This is not a hard job, but you have to open the inner door to get at the latch. Part numbers for the spring disp. flap is 912547. The latch (inside door) is 99001291. If you take your time and observe carefully the job will be easy. Catriver, post back.
