BOSCH SMV45EX00E/24 slowly filling up after washing cycle ends water inlet valve changed already, no effect

Hello, I'd like to ask your help regarding a fairly strange issue I have with a BOSCH SMV45EX00E/24 dishwasher: the washing cycle is working just fine, water comes in, cleans the dishes, used water is pumped out, and at the end of the cycle there is no water inside, but after a few hours, fresh / clean water keeps slowly filling in the bottom and the only way I can temporarily fix it is to turn the off the water. One time it even overflown and caused the device to give error E14, I've eliminated water under the Styrofoam safety switch so that the error clears but that made me think there is something causing this. After searching on the internet I've concluded that the water inlet valve needs to be replaced, which I just did, ordering an original piece, mounting it, but there is no change in the overall behavior, water is still slowly pouring in after a couple of hours, just like before. Do you have any ideas which part should be checked next? I'm thinking of the water flow sensor. Apart of that there is no other issue with the machine. except it's not even three years old and behaving like this. Any input is appreciated, Thanks in advance, Robert

It says check water and is not washing any ideas

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

It seems that the water inlet valve is blocked, check the water lines going to the unit and try to clean any blockages, also clean the inlet valve. If the problems returns then replacing the water inlet valve is recommended repair as it won't wash if it won't fill with water. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Kenmore HE3t Frontloader Fills Up With Water After Cycle

Does this change if you select a cold wash or a hot wash? What's the water temperature feel like when it fills? I'd suspect the water control solenoid for either the hot or cold water isn't shutting off completely. This could possibly be due to a piece of debris or mineral deposit in its seat, and could be cleaned with CLR or citric acid if you remove it. They're not very expensive and not a very hard item to change on most machines.

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.

Bosch dishwasher fills with water after cycle is completed

Sounds like you need a new water inlet valve. It's not shutting off completely, so water slowly enters the machine even while it isn't running.

Water in bottom of dishwasher

You could have a defective fill valve that is not shutting off properly. Look for a fill inlet opening somewhere on the inside casing of the wash tub. Usually it is on the left hand side of the machine looking in. While the dishwasher is sitting idle, watch the fill valve opening to see if water is leaking in. It could be a minor as just a drip. However, over a period of several hours you could end up with a wash tub full of water. Over a weekend with no one home, it could overflow onto the floor. The valve usually cannot be repaired and would require replacing. Good luck.

Bosch dishwasher SHU9922UC

Sounds like you already know how to fix it. The inlet valve is only held closed by water pressure...if you have low water pressure it could be causing this. Its more likely just a bad fill valve though. The water inlet valve is accessed by removinf the lower kickplate and the sheild behind that. Then all you have to do is remove the water line from the valve, remove the 2 screws holding it and pull it out far enough to disconnect the 2(possibly 3) wires and the fill hose. Make sure to mark where your wires go, if you hook it up wrong it could continue to fill and overflow. Hope this helps!

Bosch SHX55M02UC/50 Dishwasher with E6 and E1 code My Bosch SHX55M02UC/50 Dishwasher recently stopped cleaning dishes and I've been trying to investigate. I ran the test program and it shows the E6 code as the stored error, but also shows an E1 during the test. I believe these are two separate problems: 1) I understand the E6 is the aqua sensor. I took the aqua sensor out and tried testing it for continuity with a multimeter and got nothing. I could have tested it wrong, but I'm guessing that's proof I need a new one. Now, according to the repair manual, it seems I don't actually need a functioning aqua sensor for the dishwasher to work. The dishwasher will just run longer than it may need to. Does this sound correct? 2) I understand E1 is a heater error. I tested the heating element, flow switch, NPC, and hi-limit for resistance values with a multimeter and it looks to me like they are within the values specified in the repair manual. I checked wire connections, and they all seem good. I skimmed over both control circuit boards for anything unusual and saw nothing (though I'm not quite sure what I'm looking for there). Based on what I observe when I run the dishwasher and test mode, it seems the circulation pump isn't running. I don't hear it and water never moves through the spray arms. I understand the heater won't kick on unless water flows and sets the flow switch, which could be the reason for the E1? Based on all this, I think it needs a new pump. Before I go and dump close to $300 on a new pump, is there a good way to test the pump like with a multimeter? Could the lower control board be at fault? Any thoughts?
