Just installed a Used Bosch dishwasher. It had been sitting for a few months. When I turn it on, the pump runs but no water. The supply line is fine. Help!
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Can you start a cycle and wait 2 minutes. Then open the door and fill the tub manually with enough water to cover the floor. Shut the door and continue the cycle. Wait 3 minutes more and open the door---did all the water drain out or is it washing with the water?

Was a step ahead and started that. It's washing
OK so that's good, it means it's not stuck in flood mode which means that the dishwasher float switch isn't stuck in the up position from moving. Unfortunately that means that your electronic water valve is just bad if you're sure the dishwasher is getting water from your house. You can order a new valve at for about $40 normally if you have the model number located on a sticker on the right side of the door. This valve is the part that your water supply hose from your house connects to.
