I bought a floor sample SHE44 and I'm installing it. It came with apparently an extra water supply braided hose that is attached to the REAR of the machine. I want to use the existing copper pipe and connect to the front water connection. Do I have to do anything with the extra supply hose? Remove it? Plug it? Point it upwards?

Re: Installing Bosch SHE44
You shouldn't have to do anything, as the water supply line should have a one way valve in there somewhere. However, you might want to remove it, just so it doesn't get in the way, and you have it undamaged should you ever need it.

Buy a flexible braided hose for mains pressure. They come in different lengths.
Fit one end to the water outlet tap and for the other end you will need a fitting you can attach the dishwasher hose to that any plumbing supply has. I don't think you can buy a flexible braided hose that will fit to your water supply tap on one end and then straight to the end of the dishwasher hose on the other. You will need the adapter between the 2 to hook the fittings up. Use plumbers tape on the fittings when installing them for a good water seal.
Or you can just get a plumber in who will fit everything up for you and will also probably use a flexible hose to plumb in the water supply.
No Its not normal, first of all did you flush the entire line and replace the filter at the same time? All of this is a factor. A stainless steel line is nothing more than a rubber hose wrapped in a steel mess, it very easy to move around and install. I think allow time for the water to settle and flush out the entire water system with a filter change should fix this issue.
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?
If you have power to water valve when it is supposed to fill yet doesn't the water valve is bad, as long as their is a good water supply to the valve. Sometimes espically if it has one of those flexible stainless steel braided hoses something in cabinet could have pinched it,
For water supply, use a braided stainless steel flexible dishwasher supply hose with 3/8 compression ends on each side and a 3/8 male NPT x 3/8 compression elbow adapter. There is a tee with 3/8 female compression x 3/8 male compression x 3/8 male compression which can be used between the hot water shut off valve and the supply tube to the kitchen sink faucet to get your hot water with no significant plumbing work. Make sure the drain hose does not run straignt down back to the dishwasher. (put a loop up to make sure no dirty water tries to go back to the dishwasher.) If installing drain to a disposer drain port, make sure the knock out plug has been removed. It's also easiest if the floor under the dishwasher is at the same hight as the rest of the floor in the kitchen. Make sure wire nut connections are tight for electrical.
No you will have disconnect the copper line. I would suggest that while you have it out that you replace the copper line with a braided stainless steel hose (also known as a dishwasher connector hose) If possible get a 60" or 72" hose so you can hook up the dishwasher when it is out and then push it back in with the water supply already hooked up.
This may or may not be the issue: I have friends that bought a new dishwasher - I'm not certain, but I think it was a Bosch. They did have similar draining issues.
With their dishwasher, the installer did not follow directions properly. Yes, he'd "installed a million dishwashers", but was too self-confident to check the directions for something particular to this machine. There was something about the way one of the drain or supply hoses was supposed to loop around that was unique to installing this brand, and that ended up being the problem.
Make sure that your machine was installed properly in this regard, even if your installer says they know what they were doing. Call Bosch's customer service dept. if you have further questions.
