Bosch Diswasher SGS4012GB/13

Hello,

We've got a problem with our dishwasher - All connected up to water supply but water seemingly not going into the dishwasher - not getting the usual water swooshing sounds when cycle begins.

Can you help?

Thanks

    Since water heater in home was replaced Dishwasher stopped working. I can hear it running but no water in entering the dishwasher. Does the dishwasher require some type of priming? I wiill attempt to locate and change the solenoid as described FixYa for Bosch Dishwasher SDS4012GB/13 FixYa.

First check the machine is getting electricity (and the problem isn't a blown fuse!)

A very likely cause is that the solenoid on the inlet valve has gone. Rarer possibilities to consider are water turned off at the mains, a blocked inlet strainer (where the inlet hose mates with the valve), or a problem with the programme controller.

The inlet valve is near the top of the machine, and is the thing the hose from your outside water supply screws into. The solenoid is the electrical bit that clips onto the top of the valve body.

I suggest you go out to your local appliance spares shop and buy a replacement solenoid for not much, fit it and see what happens. It is possible to do a series of tests to confirm first that really is the problem - but with the solenoids being cheap, I'm inclined to suggest not messing around with test gear, water and mains electricity.

When replacing the solenoid, make really sure the machine is unplugged from the electricity supply.

Usually best to take the top panel off to gain access (try taking the trim across the back of the top panel off, then sliding the panel off backwards).

Disconnect the cables from the old solenoid. Prise it off the valve body. Snap the new one on in its place and refit the cables (it doesn't really matter which way round they go, but one way will probable look neater than the other).

Bosch she43f15uc just stopped pumping water. Any ideas? it is only 18 months old.


My Bosch dishwasher had the same problem. After checking the over flow pan I removed the inlet hose to check water flow. There was none. I checked my cut off valve...open...I had water at the kitchen facet...scratch my head...I looked closer at the Bosch supplied braided water hose. It is directional (label indicating which end to hook to supply)....closer inspection reveals maybe there is a back flow valve in that side of the braided hose. Disconnect, blow air through...air passes freely...reconnect and bingo water flow at the dishwasher. In line back flow valve...can you imagine what a repair man would have charged for that?

I have a Bosch diswasher model SGS44E12EU it is not filling up with water when turned on and so the cycle does not work.


hello, check the pump first make sure theres no water left in the machine if ok then check water supply to the machine if this ok then the cause could be the water inlet values on the machine make sure they are not blocked hope it helps

Water comes into dishwasher cold. why???


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Have you insured the unit is connected to a hot water supply line ? The water will not heat until it start's to circulate and activates the "flow switch" in the Bosch dishwashers.

If it is connected to a hot water supply, try running the hot water at your sink taps before turning on the dishwasher. If you still do not have hot water, check your hot water heater or supply.

If it is indeed connected to a cold water supply it will work, just be prepared for very long wash cycles since the Bosch machines will heat the water at a rate of 2F per minute...it could take a long time to reach 155F.

Let me know what you find out and I'll try to assist you in any manner I can going forward.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)
