Question about Dishwashers

Dishwasher won't let water in

I have a Bosch SHU6806UC stainless steel dishwasher. The dishwasher goes on, but no water comes in and I believe the water float valve is either damaged or not working. I need to see a chart that shows all the parts in an illustration that also list where the parts are. Please send me an illustration of this.

This is just a suggestion, run a cycle and after a few mins of it washing, open the door and add a cup of bleach and let the washer run. See if this helps.

SOURCE: bosch exxcel 1400s express is the drum stainless

It is simple to tell what the drum is made of: if it is silvery metal-like finish, then it is stainless steel. It cannot be aluminum because the aluminum would not withstand the abrasive and detergent chemical action . It would also not be chrome or chrome finish.
If it is normal steel, it must be porcelain coated since porcelain can take the abuse necessary and also protect the steel from eroding. Porcelain will (of course) be white or grey paint-like finish. It could be a poly/pvc/plastic drum but this hopefully would be obvious and of course would also be white.
Many model come as an option of porcelain steel or stainless steel and the model number is the same except for one digit. I will assume your 's' digit stands for stainless, in either case, the silver metallic finish is the determining clue. Macgivor

Dishwasher not filling up with water


Hi

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

How do you check for error codes on a Bosch SHY56A05UC/23 Dishwasher? My dishwasher runs continuously in the drain mode and the "cancel drain" feature does not work.


what is happenig i believe and has happened to me 2 times is that the water level float that is on the left side of dishwasher is stuck.

Either remove side panel and flick lever or pull dishwasher out and tap lower portion of panel and this will cause the level to move and then see hat happens

Hi i have a Bosch electronic management dishwasher its about 5 yrs old. it washes but the water does not drain out. can you help


It is either the waste water pump has stopped working, whichis accessible from below the dishwasher (lay dishwasher on back and remove 2screws from bottom plate) or alternately the float (open dishwasher door, removebottom basket and lift dome shaped float up and down a few times).

There is no water going into the dishwasher.


The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. First Check to see if the valve is getting water. Make sure it’s not clogged. There is a screen on the inside of the valve, this sometimes gets clogged up with debris. Check to see if you get power to valve when unit is put into operation may take a couple minutes to start a fill. If you have power and it’s not clogged up replace the valve .If you have no power to the water inlet valve check float switch. This can be done by checking the continuity. There is a video of this at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you checking the water inlet valve and the float switch. It may be a different model but the testing procedure will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for most models.

Bosch DW model # SHU43C05UC. When dw is turned on it is supposed to pump out whatever is is sump. Pump never shuts off. So it never goes into a wash cycle.


This could be that the anti flood device (protection device) has detected a water leak / spill and it automatically puts the pump motor on and does not do eanything else until the water spill / leak is rectified. The protection device is a polystireene float and micro switch at the base of the washer. Make sure that water at the base is not causing the float to activate the microswitch. Dry the water and rectify the leak / spill and this should sort the problem out.

Dishwasher is not filling with water at the beginning of the cycle.


Hi,

There Could be 2 Reasons. Read the below information from a Guide :-

Water-inlet valve

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.

Float switch

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.
The Problem would be be either of the Above.

Getting no water


the electric valve turns the water on and off. the float switch in the d/w tells the valve when to stop. If the float is stuck on the up position, the valve will not open and no water will come in. The other option is that the control panel is not telling the valve to open. Hope this helps.

Power fine, but no water filling the tub


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.
