I need to replace the water valve assy. on left front where water line connects. Looks like 2 screws hold it in. It has a slow leak that is causing water to build in base and trip shut off. DO I have to remove the dishwasher and flip it to remove base? How big a job is it? Any help appreciated

Re: Bosch SHV66A03uc built in
There is no easy repair on a Bosch dishwasher. I guess Bosch figured it would run forever. To replace anything (except the wash motor start capacitor) you will have to remove the dishwasher, flip it upside down to do most repairs.

Knowing what you`ve provided "Makes screaming as washer is being filled"...the issue is likely with the inlet/water valve being noisy. To remedy this, first check your water pressure is adequate or the supply line valve is completely "open". If you can rule out the issue of water supply pressure being the culprit, you will need to replace the valve, not surprising for Bosch unfortunately.
As long as your model number is indeed SHU66 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...
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.
Once the new one is in you should be good to go.
Let me know if you need any further assistance, otherwise good luck.
Your inlet valve has a screen on it.This is probaly clogged, it does happen. At the bottom of your dishwasher ther will be 2 - 4 screws holding the front panels on. UNPLUG FIRST! Remove the panel/s. TURN OFF WATER TO DISHWASHER! you Will have a copper line going into the valve (usually blue w/a 2wire connector and a water supply) and always at the front on either the left or right side. Disconnect the copper water supply line and check the filter.screen. If the bottom inside of the dishwasher is full of water either you need to remove the spray bars and clean them out or you need to replace the impeller in the center under the spray bars. also very easy.
Hello, your problem is going to be with the inlet valve. Remove the panel at the front bottom of the dishwasher, turn the water and power off. You will see the inlet valve normally on the left side underneath your dishwasher (sometimes on right) connected to the water supply. Remove the water supply hose/pipe and then remove the wire harness from the valve. Now you can remove the valve from the machine. Just inside the inlet there should be a screen...check this for debris. If debris found clean out and reassemble, If no debris replace the valve and then reassemble. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!! Mike
Follow the main water supply line. It goes to a solenoid valve which is normally located front left side under the dishwasher.
1. Turn off the main circuit breaker for the dishwasher. 2. Turn off Water supply to the dishwasher. 3. Remove lower front panel. 4. Remove Water supply line from solenoid. 5. remover wire connections from solenoid. 6. Remove 2 mounting screws from solenoid. 7. Take solenoid valve out. 8. Look inside the valve where the water supply line was connect to, You will be able to see the filter. it is just a screen and you can easily clean it.
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.
It is no fuse in dishwasher.
Solution1: Check if the inlet line to d/w is open(usually it located under the sink)
Solution2: To rich a fill valve filter:
1. Shut off water to d/w
2.open kick panel under front door of d/w
3.disconect the water line on left hand side
4.pull filter from center of water valve by nose pliers
5. clean the filter by old toothbrush under the sink 6.put everything back 7. if does not help the water valve needs to be replace
Sounds like you already know how to fix it. The inlet valve is only held closed by water pressure...if you have low water pressure it could be causing this. Its more likely just a bad fill valve though. The water inlet valve is accessed by removinf the lower kickplate and the sheild behind that. Then all you have to do is remove the water line from the valve, remove the 2 screws holding it and pull it out far enough to disconnect the 2(possibly 3) wires and the fill hose. Make sure to mark where your wires go, if you hook it up wrong it could continue to fill and overflow. Hope this helps!
