I have a Bosch SHU4300 Dishwasher. Its about 10 years old.

Resolved Question:

I have a Bosch SHU4300 Dishwasher. It's about 10 years old. Never a problem till now.

We hit power and reg wash and it comes on but no water. I tried pushing various combinations of buttons as suggested in the manual to reset the cycle. One time I did this and the water came back like normal but later in the cycle the water did not come in to rinse. I still suspect the reset has not been done correctly, but it could be something else.

I've cleaned the main filter at bottom. I don't know if there are fuses.

Do I need a technician and a part...or is there a reset process I can try again?

This doesn't sound like a do-it-yourself job, but will require a technician.
My dishwasher is built in and I have no idea how to get to this valve.
Is it behind the base plate? Or at the bottom of the door?
Do I need to pull the unit out from under the counter?

you will remove the lower front panel and there are 2 screws holding it on, pull it out, disconnect the water line and the power wires and swap, it will come with instructions also and it cost about $25 ,, thanks

Replaced the water inlet valve. It not makes more sound, but still now water coming in. I've reset the buttons to clean and started over and the pump comes on but even after 4-5 water. Normally, soon as the I hear the pump turn on, I also hear water in the DW.

I did turn the water valve back on after replacing the inlet valve.
