I have an older Bosch compact dishwasher - Classixx Maxx Freedom Performance.
I installed it myself simply by mirroring the plumbing on the washing machine nearby - cold water supply and drain through a high loop to the drain.
It worked fine initially, but now has stopped filling correctly. I can hear the pump chugging away, sucking at air. Suspecting an air gap, if I pour a few jugs of water into it, the machine runs correctly.
- What can cause an air gap in a dishwasher to form?
- What other failures or installation mistakes could cause the dishwasher to fail in this way?
The plate reads:
FD 8310 000470
There is also this long number:

Further info - a rinse cycle will work fine. The issue seems to be happening only when I put it on for a wash.
