Question about Bosch SHU9915UC Dishwasher
Dishwasher stops partway though main cycle, also water never seems to get hot. Guess it is the Heater Element. Am I right, and if so how can I gain access to the element to check it. Or can you send me the service manual.

I'm probably sounding like a broken record, but id f its got buttons on the front and not a knob, its probably the control board. Unplug the unit or flip the breaker.Take off the outer door and the control panel by removing all those torx screws down each side, then pop that control board with all the wires out of the housing. once you have that in your hand, open the control assembly itself (should open like a book, into 2 halfs) once you spot the half without the buttons and lights, take that half out of the plastic housing and look on the back. If there is a burnt solder joint there (it will be obvious if it is) you will need to have that joint repaired, or get a new control board..bout $150 if memory serves. that joint that burns powers the heater, so its likely thats your problem. It can also cause some other isuuse as well, such as the time display freaking out (if you have one) Good Luck!

First check the machine is getting electricity (and the problem isn't a blown fuse!)
A very likely cause is that the solenoid on the inlet valve has gone. Rarer possibilities to consider are water turned off at the mains, a blocked inlet strainer (where the inlet hose mates with the valve), or a problem with the programme controller.
The inlet valve is near the top of the machine, and is the thing the hose from your outside water supply screws into. The solenoid is the electrical bit that clips onto the top of the valve body.
I suggest you go out to your local appliance spares shop and buy a replacement solenoid for not much, fit it and see what happens. It is possible to do a series of tests to confirm first that really is the problem - but with the solenoids being cheap, I'm inclined to suggest not messing around with test gear, water and mains electricity.
When replacing the solenoid, make really sure the machine is unplugged from the electricity supply.
Usually best to take the top panel off to gain access (try taking the trim across the back of the top panel off, then sliding the panel off backwards).
Disconnect the cables from the old solenoid. Prise it off the valve body. Snap the new one on in its place and refit the cables (it doesn't really matter which way round they go, but one way will probable look neater than the other).
