Re: No water in dishwasher
You need the check the water level switch which is located on the diaphram of the water fill assembly. This is located on the laft side of your machine behind the metal panel. if this switch sticks it will not allow water into the machine
Hi, just use cleaning liquid designed for diahwashers and ur float will come unstuck.
Mine is totally gunked up inside the tubing (calcium Carbonate crytals and fungus.
WHat does the diaphragm do?
I have a SHU9922UC and the control panel has just died for the third time in 10 months. Its symptom is a dishwasher that runs and runs but never fills. I was told that this is an issue with this model. When they pull the control panel you can see a "burnt" area on the board. at $150 a repair, I'm getting a new dishwasher. It works great until the control panel wigs out.

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.
Parts Required: Water inlet valve Bosch Water Inlet Valve Assembly for Dishwasher
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.
Based on your description, " machine is leaking water from underneath... it sounds like it is filling up, but the machine is not even plugged in "...the issue is likely with the inlet/water valve.
**To remedy this you will need to replace the valve, not surprising for Bosch unfortunately**This is what to look for..i.e.
As long as your model number is indeed SHU9915 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.

difficult not seeing the valve firsthand but if you could connect a tester to the solonoid and confirm that there is power on the terminals, then you know there is an issue with the valve. typically, if you have a leak, it to will raise the float and shut off the valve.
Water supply to the dishwasher is done through an electromagnet valve,located at the pipe's enterance to the machine. Test that it get power (with a multi- meter). In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from the machine before doing it !!!!!
Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new valve.
