Dishwasher will not take in water - Bosch Dishwashers


Answers :

On bosch dishwasher if the base senses a water leak the unit will not\015\012fill & the drain pump will come on. I recommend checking for water\015\012in the base & locating the source of the leak if you see water in\015\012the base. Other possibilities; fill switch, water level switch or water\015\012valve. There is no reset for this problem.

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.

Bosch slimline dishwasher SRS560. Unit has had this fault for a while, now going a bit mouldy so keen to repair it. Displays following Symptoms 1) Firstly empty motor drains water. This appears to be fine as I can hear the gurgling of the plug. 2) Then takes water from inlet to fill internal tank. I can hear the water entering the tank, and tap pressure indicates that water is being taken in. 3) The unit then sits there and does nothing for 25 mins until programme ends. I've

My Bosch dishwasher has several problems: 1) Water doesn't completely drain out and dishwasher kind-of smells when I open it -- I do keep the filter very clean. 2) The dishwasher takes HOURS to go through one load, no matter what the time says on the display and no matter what type of cycle you choose -- quick, delicate or regular. 3) The red display often displays something that looks like "2h" at the beginning of the cycle. 4) The place where you put the detergent doesn't shut.


Hi Kathryn .I think you have a defective pressure switch. The pressure switch is located near to the drain pump, and the device is used to determine when water had been drained completely.Also check the floater switch located ... Dishwashers

My Bosch dishwasher is taking hours (at least 3 - maybe more) to complete a cycle. There is gummy, yucky stuff building up inside - sorta pinkish brownish. Could the water not be hot enough? A couple of months ago we installed an on-demand hot water heater and I wonder if that could have anythig to do with it. I've tried running the hot water in the sink first but that doesn't help. Any ideas


If your on demand heater is one of the small ones that mounts under the sink, it will not flow enough water to fill your dishwasher. the dishwasher is waiting for the water level to fill before it starts washing. your bosch will heat its own wat ... Bosch SHX46A07UC Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model #SHU43C02UC/14, which has stopped working - no water enters the inside nor is there any drain cycle - just nothing. At the same time, I had to have the new control board put in as part of the Bosch recall. The tech comes out, puts in the new board - still nothing. He says something is wrong with the board even though the problem existed before the new board was installed. He takes everything back to his shop and tells me he's trying to contact Bosch tech support

Our Bosch SGS 53E02 AU/30 Dishwasher has the Tap Light on all the time while the Dishwasher is filling up. It appears as though water cannot get through and takes a long time to fill.

We have a bosch dishwasher model shx43c and water is dripping on the floor from the area of the supply line, taking the supply line fitting out and re taping it and re tightening it has not helped, could the valve be leaking back this way, instead of the more common leaking into the dishwasher itself?

Hello, my Bosch Classixx dishwasher SGS43E42EU/21 has me stumped. It starts by taking in water but when "filled" pumps out for a couple of seconds then refills for say 10 seconds more before another 2 or 3 seconds of pumping out. This cycle continues for ages without starting to wash. I've tried various things: - checked the Auto Stop valve isn't being activated by leakage (removing the polystyrene float and bottom tray makes no difference - there's no leak) - the valve seems to operate it

I have a Bosch dishwasher (SMI5072), bought in 2005 second-hand but working OK. It has always been a little slow to get going, and I had initially thought the clockwork program dial was getting stuck. Then I concluded that it had something to do with the filling up process, and I thought it must be because the water was rather cold and paid no more attention to it. This has meant that it seemingly takes ages to get through a cycle. Yesterday I put it on, left it and got on with some work. An h

Bosch dishwasher wont take in water through the cold inlet


First of all, the hot water line should be supplying the dishwasher, not the cold water line.
