I will try that once Im back in the house from shops. But as stated it does actually fill with water from mains but water remains cold.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX as requested.
My DIY Skills a very good. I have taken one apart already.
I have added water to the dishwasher still no heat, however the cycle still runs
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX what I was thinking it may be - doesn't my model have a thermistor which may also be faulty and therefore not heating the water or is this all in the heat pump?
Another development - I have had the error code E:02 appear after I had run the cycle any ideas what this could mean?
so I have taken of the right side panel and can see the heat pump with connectors. To test the heat pump am I to take apart only to test the heating element part of it or is it one unit to test? picture is added.
your service so far has been truly amazing and I think I am nearly there. I haven't tested the heating element as it quite tricky to get at. I have taken the PCB out of its plastic case and inspected it for any obvious signs of damage but can see anything like burns.
What I'd like to know is can the PCB board fail if there are no signs of damage and which one is the heating relay as they all look like 'hf3fd' with 85c on them?
I am planning to purchase a new PCB Board for the machine, I haven't been able to test the Heat Pump because I can't see where the element part is. Do I have to take the Heat Pump apart or just test the contacts on the outside of the unit?
I am stumped. British Gas have stopped fixed price repairs and Knowhow say they don't repair Bosch. So I am back to square 1. I am going to make one last attempt to get at and test the heat pump. Is this by measuring the continuity across all contacts?
Then make my decision - what do you think?
I have now tested the heat pump. There are seven actual connectors on the heat pump from left to right numbered 1-7. I starting testing by putting connector 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5, all the way till connector 7, no continuity.
The only continuity I managed to get a buzz/reading was connectors 4-5, 4-6, 5-6. What my meter read was 10Ω, 20Ω and 10Ω on connectors 4-5, 4-6, 5-6 respectively.
Note my picture is upside down so number 1 is the connector to furthest right
