Having problems with your Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher ?

How do I replace the water inlet valve on a Bosch dishwasher? I have done this on other dishwashers, but the rear of the Bosch valve appears inaccessible.


Answers :

The easiest way I found to replace the valve is to pull the dishwasher out of opening and lay it on its back. When it is on its back you can get at the valve no problem.

\015\012to reach the valve you need to remove the door
\015\012here is how to test the valve



There will be two wires connected to the water inlet valve. If your dishwasher's water inlet valve has two solenoids, then there will be four wires. Label the wires so that you will be able to correctly reconnect them later. The wires are connected using slip-on connectors. Grasp the connectors and pull on them firmly in order to disconnect the wires from the valve's terminals. Do not pull on the wires themselves. You may want to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to help you.
Use your multitester to test the valve for continuity. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Touch each of the meter's probes to a terminal. If you receive a reading of infinity, it means the valve's solenoid is faulty and the valve needs to be replaced. If your valve has two solenoids (four terminals), test the second pair of terminals in the same manner. If either pair of terminals receives a result of infinity, replace the water inlet valve.
You do not have to remove the water inlet valve from the dishwasher in order to test it. Just make sure power is not getting to your dishwasher before you conduct the test.
Interestingly enough, it is entirely possible for your water inlet valve to pass the continuity test and still need replacing. This is because sometimes the valve itself is faulty, but its solenoids are not. For instance, a leaky valve may pass the continuity test, but because it is leaking, it should be replaced anyway. The same applies to valves that are filled with debris. The debris may be what is causing the valve to not function properly. If you are unable to clean out a debris-filled water inlet valve, you will have to replace it.

Kenmore dishwasher type 573-D, model 665.16034402. Items on top rack don't get washed. Items on bottom rack are washed fine. Appears top sprayer and maybe middle sprayer aren't getting water. At rear of washer, top rubber flapper valve (which feeds middle sprayer when top rack is in raised position) is stuck open, bottom flapper valve looks OK. We use top rack in raised position so this doesn't seem to be the problem.

Water seems to be leaking into the dishwasher at the end of the cycle the water appears to be clean, so I am wondering about a seal of some kind on the hot water line leaking or whatever. It is a Bosch Dishwasher SHU series 3200 My problem is the same. Water leaks in to bottom of dishwasher over about a 2-3 day period. The dishwasher runs fine. It does not ever run over. The water seems to stop entering the dishwasher after it reaches a certain level.


You have a bad water valve. When the unit is off, the valve should seal and the water should not flow. Something has gotten in the valve and is keeping the needle up or the diaphram in the valve has deteriorated. replace the water valve and you wil ... Dishwashers

My dishwasher works except is does not appear to be getting water. David psr responded: Most likely the water valve is defective or stopped up with calcium deposits. In either event, you probably need to replace the water fill valve. Not a terribly expensive nor difficult job on most dishwashers. Do I call a plumber, appliance store repair department or look for a local handy man?


I agree that the fill valve may be bad or clogged. You can fairly easily remove the valve yourself if you are somewhat handy and then take it apart and clean it. I doubt if the old valve is electrically shot but it is possible. Cleaning it out may ... GE Dishwashers

My Bosch dishwasher is Exxcel 5 prg model no SMS50E020GB.

I scoup out the water and there is about 3 litres. The machine is just over 2 years old. I had a plumber check the machine and he couldn't find anything wrong with the machine.

No Power I have a bosch shx33 dishwasher. I just replaced the water valve because of a leak and now I can't start the dishwasher. It's like there is no power to the unit. I know there is power because I get a shock if I touch the two wires that are connected to the water valve. Is there another trip switch or something somewhere?


First let me say that using parts of your body to test for mains electriciy is a VERY VERY bad idea. You are lucky you are not dead.

Bosch SHY66C My Bosch dishwasher won't fill with water.  All electrical connections are fine and I can hear it make a sound as if it is trying to start about every 2 minutes.  There was water in the bottom so I used a shop vac and pulled it all out but it still won't start and is doing the same thing.  I checked the solenoid with a multi-meter and it appears to be working.  My power went out last night for about two hours and that's all I can think of that might have affected it.  The dishwasher


I'm a novice on this question, but i agree with the above statement about check the stuck float switch or check for a bad safety switch or lockout switch of some sort. I would suspect something is definately faulty in that area. Will the dishwasher r ... Dishwashers

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwas ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.

My dishwasher was recently 'installed'. i don't know if the contractor made a mistake or if the water valve is not turned on, but the cycle tries to start but then no water is flowing into the dishwasher. everything appears to be hooked up, but I think it's the water issue b/c i also have a new refrigerator and the water dispenser/ice maker does not work because no water is flowing into the fridge either.


This sure sounds like a water valve issue, for sure. You will have to trace out the lines (not easy, but possible) and figure out where the valve is. They usually turn left to open, and right to close. I would call the contractor and tell them ... Frigidaire Professional Series 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher

I have a newly installed Kitchenaide dishwasher. The copper pipe is secure under the sink and appears connected properly to the dishwasher. When I turn the shut off valve on, water begans to run from underneath the dishwasher. There is no water under the sink. The plastic hose does not seem to be the problem.


You should be able to remove the panel below the door and see where water inlet hose is connected to the solenoid valve. I'd bet that's where it's leaking since you say it's newly installed. ... Dishwashers

I have a Bosch dishwasher that is about 4-6 years old (model SHU8805UC/U12). A few days ago I found clear water in the tub hours after the wash cycle had completed. I drained the tub by resetting the cycle as instructed in the user manual, but the tub gradually filled up with water again after several hours.. will replacing the inlet valve solve this issue?according to what I can tell for my model the water valve assembly (part No. AP3783031) is the part I need.

Hi :) We have a Bosch slimline dishwasher type SRS56A02 GB/08 - it doesn't draw in water - the timer counts down but nothing happens. We checked these pages and cleaned the filters on the inlet water line but no change :( I saw that it might be the inlet water valve - is this easy to get to - do we need to take off panels? if so, is there a manual available please? Over the past week or so it had got noiser - it was at its quietest while the water was draining out of the machine.

Our bosch dishwasher runs but no water is spraying on the inside. Is there a water filter clean out or is there a water pump that might be broken? I checked the line coming in and it isn't plugged. I made sure where the stainless line goes into the electric valve that it wasn't plugged to that point. I could see anywhere else to check if it was plugged. I figure there has to be a water pump, but I guess I'm not sure of that either. Thanks for any help..

I think I need to check the water pump/motor on my Bosch SHU43C dishwasher. It seems the water enters at the start of the wash cycle but then there is silence through the remainder of the cycles. Water will not spray. The drain appears to work ok to drain most of the water out. I have the washer out and upside down. Any hints on removing the base to get access to the pump? Should AI be looking at the control panel also for a fault? (the cycles seem to count down ok)
