The Bosch SHU430 is a front-control dishwasher designed to be installed under the counter. It may be purchased online or in select home appliance or department stores and is sold with a limited warranty. While contacting Bosch may be necessary if certain repair issues cannot be resolved, homeowners might consider some troubleshooting steps if the dishwasher will not fill with water.

Interrupted Cycle

If the Bosch dishwasher is not filling with water, one consideration must be whether the previous cycle was interrupted. If this is the case, the dishwasher will not fill with water during the next cycle. Reset the controls by pressing "Cancel/Reset" button. Then make a new selection for a new cycle and press "Start."

Water Supply

Check underneath the sink and examine the water faucet valves to see if they are turned on. Turn each valve counterclockwise to open the valve. Straighten out the water hoses and move the hoses so that they are not trapped under or against any of the dishwasher housing.

Float Switch

A small plastic float in the bottom of the dishwasher is responsible for monitoring the water flow inside the appliance. Turn off the power to the dishwasher and take out the bottom rack to access the base of the tub. Find the float, which is a little plastic cone, and push it down to release it. If the float is moving without any problems, the float switch may be damaged or defective and will need professional assistance.

Water Inlet Valve

There may also be problems with the water inlet valve if water is not entering the machine. Disconnect power to the Bosch dishwasher and then open the lower access panel on the front of the unit. Find the valve, which is connected to the main water line (typically a copper line) and a rubber tube with two wires. Examine the valve closely. If the valve is broken, damaged or leaking, a repair technician will be needed to replace or repair the valve.
