Bosch Dishwasher SGV4313GB/13
Posted 14 September 2005 - 09:40 AM
Since I have had the water off to the house, our Bosch dishwasher will not fill.
I can do a reset, the washer pump seems to run for a few seconds but it will not fill up and start.
Water is on and door is fully closed.
If I pour a couple of pints into the bottom, do a reset and then close the door, it will start a wash cycle. It then empties but wont re-fill.

Proceeding on that basis, coupled with your report that you have water pressure at the valve, your next step is to test the continuity of the valve coil and, if that checks good, to test for adequate voltage (i.e., 120v ac) going to the valve.

I have a meter connected across the terminals and have reset the machine, and turned it on.
The connections are 2 pink wires, one goes to a multi-way block on the RHS of the machine,this must go to the control PCB, whereever that is, the other is on a switch on the LHS, looks like pump switch.

How can I confirm I'm looking at the float switch?
There is solenoid operated valve which is free moving and a red float which switches the pump on when I lift it up. This red float is difficult to get at.

Correctum. It appears there are two micro switches in this assembly. Can you post the wiring diagram, also?
The part I am testing is 26 3186. I assume this is the float switch?

I know it's built in.
Wiring diagram is there, they all have it.
This is your qualification test, grasshopper. If you can't find the kickplate, much less the wiring diagram, how do you suppose you will effect this repair?
