So you lift up the float and it fills?

No it drains when lift up the float
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
But doesn't drain by itself
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Only drains manually by lifting up the float thing
UK Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

OK so you are lifting up the overflow float correct under the unit?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
When I start the dishwasher cycle after a short time water starts overflowing out of the btm, so I open the door to find water about 2 inches deep. I then pull up the the grey float thing and the water drains
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It's inside the unit
UK Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok so the unit just overfills and never starts to run a cycle?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It does overfill, but It sounds like it's trying to do a cycle, Its hard to say because I haven't let it run for long because it overflows quite quickly
UK Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

OK how do you get the water to stop filling in the unit?

Ask Your Own UK Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Open the door
UK Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

Does the water stop right away then, this sounds like a fill valve issue, the valve could be sticking open or fill sensor could be bad and causing it to overfill, but normally that would be a bad valve typically on the Bosch units.

how do I find out for sure what it is and is it easy to replace?
UK Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok what you can do is check to see if the unit is supplying constant power to the valve when you start a cycle....it should fill for about 1 minute then power should at some point be cut to the valve...if you lose power to the valve and it is still filling replace the valve. If it is still sending power to the valve the entire time until you open the door I would say you have a control issue.

Im not sure how to check if power is going to the valve???
UK Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

You would need to use a volt meter and place it across the two wires going to the valve when it is filling to check for power and watch it on your volt meter to see if power cuts off as it should to stop the unit from filling any further, chances are you just have a sticky valve causing the issue.
