Customer Question
I have a Bosch...

I have a Bosch Dishwasher Model # SHX46A07UC/26. The unit is not cycling properly. It will run through the initial rinse, but then it will drop the soap but no water will come in. I have already replaced the control unit which has not solved the problem.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I just gave you the model #

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Can you tell me exactly what happens with the machine in order.
It should fill, them the pump should kick in and start to wash, then it should fill some more followed by the tablet dropping and heating

There seems to be an initial rinse cycle followed by a purge. Then, the soap is dropped, but there is no water inserted into the system to do the wash.

Ok sounds like you have a blockage in the pressure system. I'll type up what to do now

Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Okay, I'm currently running the unit to see if it is still acting up. It's no in the initial rinse cycle
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Pressure system? Why would I get initial rinse water. but not was water?
Appliance Technician: Gavin, Home Appliance Technician replied 27 days ago

They get clogged and causes the pressure switch to stick

Remove the lid then remove the LHS panel. Behind the panel you will see the water filling chamber (put a towel on the floor and a tray to catch water if you have one) the chamber clips in at its top left unclip it and pull it up and out. There is a smaller unit with 2 switches on and an arm that moves in and out controlled by the water flow you need to remove, dismantle and clean this unit there is also a pipe attached to it that runs to the base remove that and clean it too they can get really clogged up. When thats all done it should be fine

I'll give that a try. Needless to say I now have to pull the unit out from under the counter, etc. Thanks
Appliance Technician: Gavin, Home Appliance Technician replied 27 days ago

Unfortunately so. If possible do a run test so that you can see the arm of the pressure switch moving in and out so you get an idea of before and after. Also sometimes cleaning it isn't enough and it needs replacing. I'll post you a link to the part
