Repair & Advice
Let me start by saying that I love my Bosch dishwasher and when it started to not do it's usual job of cleaning the dishes I was sad to think that I would have to replace it, even though it is almost 14 years old and this might seem like a logical thing to do. I was pretty sure that there were a few more good years left and did a little research on the internet about what the problem could be. It became pretty clear that I would have to replace the water inlet valve, the same part that I replaced on our washing machine last summer, we have really crummy water where I live so this is not surprising. I watched a couple of videos on how to do it, ordered the part, which came super fast, and proceeded with the repair. I was a little nervous because the new part is slightly different in that the solonoid (sp?) is in a different position so reinstalling the wires was reversed, but other than that, easy peasy! Mission accomplished! If I can do it, I'm a stay at home, you can too!!!!!
