Found the problem after stripping down around the main pump area.
The air pipe connected to the pressure switch on the front right hand side is connected to a small plastic box which in turn is connected to the flow pipe that fills the machine,and the box was completely blocked with slug which stopped the pressure switch from operating and so prevented the water input solenoid from opening. Hence no water would come into the machine

Bosch S9G1B dishwasher doesn't fill with water


The valve will not energize if the float is up at the limit. Sometimes a bit of soapscum can leave the float in the up position. When this happens no water is allowed into the chamber. Move the float up and down and clean the travel using a bleach spray.

Dishwasher will not fill with water when turned on


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
The following steps require using electrical power. You assume all responsibility / risk for any mis-fortunes cause by working on this dishwasher with power applied.

The first step will require using a meter on the water valve solenoid teminals.
- Remove all power.
- Remove the lower toe / kick panel(s).
- Locate the main water supply line and follow that to the inlet water valve.
- Slide the connector(s) off of the solenoid and read resistance on meter scale R x 1 or R x 10. You should read a low resistance. If you do not read any resistance the inlet water valve has failed.
If you do read resistance you must check switch the meter to AC voltage and apply power and read for AC voltage on the teminals of the wire harness.
- Start a reular wash cycle to where the unit should be filing with water.
it SHOULD read 120 VAC.
If you have no power at the connector teminals
- Check the float switch plastic FLOAT. If the float is stuck in the UP position due to food particulate on the FLOAT stem you willnot have power to the inlet water valve solenoid.
If you have power to inlet water valve solenoid and it is buzzing / humming but you get no water there is debris in the main water supply line. You wil have to shut off the water supply and clean out the inlet of the water valve.

This is what the float looks like:

This is the level switch assembly:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/bosch-level-switch-assembly-item-number-ap2802390.aspx

This is the actual Float switch: (3 terminal)
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/bosch-float-switch--3-terminal--item-number-ap2802373.aspx POWER to the inlet water valve solenoid comes from this switch.

Check for s stuck float... and that the level switch is actuated as the float id lifed gently up and down. If you do not hear a micro-switch click the switch is bad. If the float is hard to move... clean it as best you can so that it moves freely up and down.

One of the above is causing your problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

AQUA SENSOR BOSCH DISHWASHER NOT FILLING WITH WATER


Hi, if your dishwasher is not filling with water, check the Water-inlet Valve and Float Switch
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.
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.

Water supply to my Bosch SHE43CO5UC/17 dishwasher seems interrupted and not being supplied to the unit. Water supply to the unit is checked and confirmed available. What are the possible causes, i.e. stuck...


Could be a dirty hose filter or faulty inlet valve. Ther could be a leak and the bottom of the unit has flooded activating the flood safety which will cut the water supply. The pressure chamber and/or the hose pressure chamber to sumo could be block (take of left side panel and these are at the bottom right). Finally, the aquastop (grey box connected to the mains water supply that feeds the d/w) could be activated, faulty or fitted in the wrong position
Hope this gives you some where to start..

All filters are clean, but water will not come in


Hi, Check the float in the front corner and make sure it moves up and down freely. Also, you can check voltage at the inlet valve. It should get 120V at the start of the wash cycle. If there is voltage, the inlet valve will need replaced. If there is no voltage, the float switch needs tested. It is usually the inlet valve or the float.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
