bosch dishwasher wont stop filling

My Bosch dishwasher will not stop letting water in. I read on previous posts that it is probably a faulty water inlet valve, so I replaced it. The machine is still doing the same thing. Any other suggestions?

What's the model #?
Should have just check the incoming voltage to the fill valve before replacing it. If there's voltage it's going to stay open.
What happens when you manualy advance the timer?

Welcome to the forums.

You need to clarify when the water comes in.
All the time......continuously...... even with the washer turned off ?
Only when the dishwasher is turned on ?

There is an overfill protection float switch to prevent the unit from overfilling.
Has the dishwasher overflowed ?

It is Model number SHX43P15UC/60. This model does not have a timer to advance,just buttons. Did not know about where to check the voltage either.

Thanks........The water comes in continually, with the washer on or off. Last night, I turned the water off and this morning I turned it on again. There was no water coming in until I closed the door and the program stated. Then it would not stop again, even after turning the machine off. Had to turn the water off.

Ouch. As much as I hate to say it, you may have a control board failure. It may not be DIY friendly.

I was hoping you were not going to say that. I actually have changed the control module on an older model, but the cost and the time involved makes it pretty much not worth it. Just got home from the store and water all over the floor with the machine off. Looks like it may be time for a new one.

With most dishwashers the float switch is in series with the water fill valve so that it won't allow the unit to overfill. I'm not sure if Bosch uses this same exact method as you've told us that yours has overflowed.

The control module for that unit is inexpensive compared to most controllers.
