Dishes not Clean
Model Number: SHE3AR76UC Brand:
1 - 5 years
4 year old dishwasher Bosch SHE3AR76UC was not washing dishes adequately. Pump seemed O.K. But not enough water in bottom. Checked inlet valve, waster was flowing into washer. Ran diagnostics, no error codes.
Still not enough water in washer. According to diagnostic step through water comes in for 90 seconds, and should be 4 liters. Decided the valve must not be opening completely. Took it out, checked inlet screen. No problem. Still not enough water. Ordered new valve and installed. Problem fixed. Took old valve apart to see what went wrong. Valve is pilot/water actuated, and has a diaphragm. diaphragm had a small tear and when flexed, it fell apart. Just posting this to let anyone else know what I found.
