Question about Bosch 24 in. SGS43C12 Classixx Free-Standing Dishwasher
My dishwasher will not drain. I have checked all lines to it. No clogs (I think)
The cancel drain buttons are not responding on the control panel. The machine gets through all the cycles till the last drain and it won't drain
I have a Bosch Classixx with what sounds the same problem.It would not drain properly and hummed even when the front door was opened.After a couple of days it ponged a bit.This is what I did.Sypnoned off yukky water with a short length of hose (fill pipe with water from tap don't **** on it!!).Cleaned filter under cutlery tray at bottom.Then put a TEASPOON of bleach if on main drainage or dishwasher cleaner if septic tank.Ran on a hot wash and see if it sorted problem-it didn't but did clean system.
Syphoned off again -take care.Isolated electric and water supply.-Should do that first perhaps Pulled out from under counter undid drain hose at sink end and water at machine end.I then put machine on side and undid bottom silver plate.Note position of polystyrene float switch cover.I then followed drain hose to drain pump and undid it by twisting it like a bayonet light bulb undoing clip levering with screwdriver (not for feint hearted as easy to break) -I then checked little impeller for foreign object-found none so pulled off pump housing by rubber hose to bigger pump thing next to it and found small bit of plastic put it back together and hey presto problem sorted-I was told it might take two hours for the expert to do it once on his workhop bench-it took me about 30 mins plus a bit of head scratching and a yank and push or two which could have been rather expensive -I was lucky!

My model is actually a SHX46 but I was able to piece together some advice off of this site. This is what I did. I removed the toe plate and then I soaked up all the water that I could out of the white pan at the bottom. Then I unhooked the water supply line so that I could pull the dishwasher out. Once I got it out, I tipped it forward to drain out the rest of the water. I then unhooked the drain line that was connected to the disposal and cleaned it out with a "Snake line" I then hooked everything back up and it worked. Thanks so much for this website, I know it saved me a ton of $$$$$$$$$.

Probably the aquastop (if you have one). We have a similar problem after our owerflow. The dishwasher is starting and running through the programs but no water is coming.

Tips for a great answer:
Have you tried canceling the cycle? To cancel, turn the on/off switch to on, then press and hold for three seconds the two buttons labeled "Cancel Drain". Keep the door closed for the next minute so that the dishwasher can complete the cycle. During this time the pump will remove any water from the washer. Also you will notice that Bosch dishwashers always leave a little water in the system to keep the seals from drying out and going bad.
Hope this helps
