Check water supply to dishwasher. If ok then check water inlet filter for block. If blocked clean or replace.

Hi there ....this condition is ususally caused by a water leak into the sump of the dishwasher which activates a safety switch to run the drain pump..preventing the appliance from being used....Remedy...tip the dishwasher back in the head allowing excess water to exit from the sump...then with the door open check that the air vent lock ring is secure, thet the salt unit retaining ring is secure..and finally that the filter unit to base screws are secure...this done re-start and you should b fine

SOURCE: dishwasher won't run cycle and no water is entering machine

This sounds all to familiar. I had this problem once and it was valve that was closed and would not open. The cause was lime in the water that built up over time. This was an unnecessary expense. Is the water in your area generally hard? Once I replaced the valve, it took care of it.

SOURCE: Water does not turn on. It is ok in sink area...it runs out.

You have 1 of 2 problems on this 35 year old DW...
1. The water solenoid is out.....need replacing.
2. The timer is going bad (has gone bad)...needs replacing....what happens over the years...with timers is that the teeth wear out , break,, wear down, and will not engage specific functions of the dishwasher as in activating the water solenoid. The odds are these parts will be cheap...but having been in the industry for 35 years...I have found that often when you install a new part in an old unit ....it places a load on all the old parts...that they are not used to...and other parts start to fail...you will probably be better off buying a new one....hopefully (and probably) the last you will ever need since you only use it once a week.

I hope this helped thanks ...the Fang.

SOURCE: Water enters dishwasher, soap door opens but soap

That's a normal path for the soap. It sounds like the water just sits in the bottom without being pumped through the spray arms. Does the pump motor run? Pop the door open in the middle of the washing cycle--you should see hot water dripping from everything and the soap picked up and circulated with the water. If this machine has seen a lot of use, the intake screen under the lower spray arm may be plugged and is accessed by removing the spray arm and working your way down to the bottom of the deck. Might be a problem for a service technician to take care of.

SOURCE: bosch shu9915uc dishwasher when turned

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description "dishwasher when turned on sounds like drain pump is running but water will not enter dishwasher" , it sounds like the emergency overfill switch has been actuated. Here`s what to do and what to look for.

**Turn off the breaker/power at your homes service panel...safety first of course**

Remove the the bottom panel, referred to as a toe panel or kick-plate, essentially the lower service panel shown here...

dd2a40d.jpg

When you remove the outer toe panel, there will be another small panel which is non finished steel, I find removing that allows much easier access as well.


27e2e22.jpg

This panel can be somewhat more difficult as it secures the plastic channeling for the wires but if you observe closely you`ll see it does "snap" out of place...carefully.


8d2e98d.jpg

Once the panel has been removed check for any obvious signs of water in the base ( the unit has a plastic overfill basin with a float which will actuate an emergency overfill cycle, hence the drain pump runs & runs )

f5b8d76.jpg

If you don`t see any water in this area, direct your attention to the left in this basin/bottom ( from the front to be sure ) and you should see a device which will resemble a "stir stick" you`d use for coffee etc. it will be a red in color stick.


5c066c9.jpg

With the aid of a wooden spoon, long screwdriver, or if you can manage to reach by hand, lift it up and down gently and listen for a "click".

If there is no sign of water and you can here the "click" when lifting up and down the float actuater ( red stick ) then turn the machine back on and give it a try before reassembling the toe panel so you can observe for any possible leaks.

Let me know what you find. This is the most likely cause of the symptom you are describing so we can move forward if this doesn`t resolve the issue.

Thanks for choosing FixYa. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Following the wash cycle with my Miele G464SC


sounds like you mean when the unit is running you are getting water dripping from the bottom of the door panel. if you remove the door panel at the bottom where the door hinges you will find an overflow tray which runs the width of the door. This is probably blocked with food deposits.

If not you may be using too much detergent. try running with no detergent and see if there are any leaks.if you open the door mid cycle the water level shouldn't be any higher than the bottom spray arm. hope this helps

Water keeps filling even if dishwater is off or if the door is open, the only way to stop it is from turning tap valve off below the sink.


Your dishwasher water fill valve is defective. Remove power from the DW. Remove the bottom toe kick panel. The water valve has the incoming water line connected to it.Remove the wires from the valve. If the water stops entering you have a bad timer. If it makes no difference you have a bad valve. The valve is a replaceable part. The timer is a replaceable part.

My Bosch SHV46C dishwasher keeps running, even when the door is open, unless you turn the control switch off. Then, when you turn the switch on, it starts running again.


I have a Bosch that was stuck in pump down mode even when the door was open.
The problem ended up being too much water in the drip pan below the unit. There is a float in the drip pan that actuates the same limit switch as the internal overfilled float.
I had recently cleaned the incoming water filter and must have loosened the water line tube.

Bosch dishwasher runs w/door open. Wont stop pumping water out


That was exactly my issue-I've tilted it 45d, emptied the tray and it works!

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on....


From your description, I doubt that the problem is door latch is the cause.
The first thing that a modern dishwasher does before it begins to fill with water is run the drain pump.  It appears that this DW is not progressing to the next cycle (inlet water) and because the pump runs even when the door is open, I agree that the controller card may have failed.
If possible, inspect all the wire connections (remove main power before you do this) ... if there is a loose connection, the controller could do odd things.
Good Luck!  Please report back what you find, OK?

Bosch dishwater backed up/leaking


You may have upset the lower door gasket, a kind of "wiper" that keeps the water inside during wash/ Look for a wrinkel in it. Maybe push it down some. the track where it goes my be you can see and it will be self explaning. As for the water not draining.... A hose kinked, A pumpout drain valve not gettign power, I just had the same problem with mine and found a small piece of a plastic baggy in the pump sump covering part of the drain hole. And after that I had no drain and just squished the drain hose at the outlet. I suspect a buildup of grease or maybe some more plastic was inside the the outlet tube. Mine drains fine now. Look for these. And let me know please

Dishwater won't stop trying to drain even when door is opened


The drain valve is stuck open. This is electrically operated, but may have some debris inhibiting movement. If you can physically move it (with the power off) this should repair the problem.

Pump continues to run


make sure you dont have water sitting under dishwasher in tray. it can cause pump only to run. If there is water in bottom, look under water valve, there is a float-is it surrounded with water?
