Question about Bosch Dishwashers
The check water light keeps coming on and I can not find my booklet for it. An engineer years ago told me on my previous machine to tip it backwards which seems to let water out of the machine. The flooring is in need of renewing anyway but is there a better method of curing the machine's problem. I don't know if I insured it either so if not is it worth getting a repair man in or should I get a new machine?
I have used a Finish dishwasher cleaner since it started playing up but it didn't help.

sounds like there may be something caught in the drain pump itself.
can you provide me with the complete model # on your dishwasher please?

THIS IS THE INTAKE DRAIN LIGHT, THIS USUALLY MEANS YOU HAVE A DRAIN ISSUE, COULD BE A BLOCKAGE AT THE PUMP OR YOUR INSTALLATION IS INCORRECT, YOU CAN CALL MIELE CUSTOMER SERVICE AND ORDER A USE AND CARE MANUAL AS WELL AS AN INSTALLATION GUIDE, THEY ARE ALSO VERY GOOD AT TROUBLSHOOTING OVER THE PHONE @ 1-800-843-7231

This is such an easy repair, you'll be shocked and surprised! The reason this is happening is that the computer or timer has detected a "flood" condition and has permanently energized the drain pump to clear the "flood".
What you'll need to fix it...
1.) Shop-Vac (for vacuuming water) with a crevice tool (like one of these)
2.) T20 Torx bit with a driver. Torx sizing here. (You can get a set at Home Depot or Lowes)
All you gotta do now is get down on the floor and remove the kick panel. Then remove the screws holding the water valve and lift it up out of its' plastic holding. Now your shop-vac w/ crevice tool can be used. Stick the crevice tool in there (about 10") and vacuum up all the water that's been trapped in the basin. (you may need a flashlight to see what's going on back in there...) After the water is gone, your DW will work fine.
Here's how it works... About 10" behind the inlet valve is a "float" made of styrofoam. When water gets into the basin, the float rises and eventually trips a "flood condition" switch. This switch shuts the unit down and will only allow the drain pump to operate. So what you want to do is get the water out of the basin.
There may be a reason for the basin flooding, though. Suds (caused by too much (or the wrong) detergent), an actual water leak from the valve, etc... So after you get the water out of there and the unit is working again, you may want to monitor it (like, only run it when someone is home) for a while just to make sure that a real flood does not occur.
Hope this helps.

it possibly could be a bad soldier joint on the heater relay of the circuit board. but if it is then let an authorized bsh tech replace the board since that is a 5 year warrenty part usually. it also could be problem with the NTC-HEAT ASSY- OR FLOW CONTROL. which are all part of the heat assemby.
but the first thing i would check since the time is jumping around on that model would be to make sure that the polarity on the power cord isnt reversed where its hooked up to the d/w
