Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, " dishwasher is continually letting in water from water supply, even when unit is turned off "... and to answer your question, 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.

My Bosch SHX46A02UC-23 dishwasher is - e601791.jpg

As long as your model number is indeed correct, this info below will be accurate.

Original part is # 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...


i.e.

Replacing it or to check for debris in the filter/screen at the inlet is pretty straight forward. Here`s how...

1) undo the water line. ( here you can visually inspect the screen in the valve...if nothing noted, you'll likely need to replace it as follows )

2) Remove the two #20 torx screws fasteninMy Bosch SHX46A02UC-23 dishwasher is - 156e176.jpgce.

3) the feed tube to the machine aMy Bosch SHX46A02UC-23 dishwasher is - 5937279.jpgof 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.

Thanks for visiting FixYa.

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 :)

Bosch SHU 8805 upper arm is getting no water.


replace the upper water arm conduit and wash arm hub as they leak under years of pressure and the o-rings leak water and then it can't hold pressure and supply the upper arm with full pressure water,also replace the center arm conduit if it has one as this will wear out too

Bosch SHX46A02Uc/21


it is likely a control module issue. I will take mine apart this weekend to verify what others have said: solder joint on circuitboard burns out from possible overheating, and DW doesnt go into rinse cycle. Try rinse and hold cycle to see if it stops on its own. mine does, but the other cycles which require the rinse to go to 156 degrees do not; the continue to run until I cancel and drain.

Continuious Filling.


seems like the inlet solenoid valve is stuck in the partly open position. This happens when tiny particles become entrapped inside the valve even though manufacturers attempt to prevent this by installing a screen at the water connection. So one possible solution is to remove the valve and thoroughly clean it. I do this by actually disassembling the valve body. Usually it is a split-shell assembly with a rubber gasket at the split line. Just be careful and if you tear the gasket, it can be replaced with automotive silicone gasket maker (comes in a tube). Draw pictures of each step if you need reference for re-assembly.
