My Bosch dishwasher at first used to trip after a few

Customer Question

My Bosch dishwasher at first used to trip after a few minutes. However, now I switch it on and it will not fill. No water even coming in. I have checked the mains water tap in and that is working OK (ie water comes out). The tube in to the machine itself is clear but still no water comes in. What can I try> Thanks Dave
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: It is about 4 years old. The number on it is SMS50TO2GB
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes, it can't be difficult I should imagine!
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Not that I can think of. Aks me a question if you need to know more.

The most likely to be faulty is the water inlet valve. Does it hum or buzz when it starts as if the valve is trying to open to allow water in? Do you have a meter to perform any electrical testing with to see if power is getting sent to the valve?
