The water will not clear out of my Bosch Dishwasher
I have a light on my bosch dishwasher saying 'clear water'. the water has built up at the end of the dishwasher and will not clear away and I cant find my manual : ( I only have this dishwasher two years. Any thoughts on what to do? We have cleared out the drain as this sometimes gets blocked but it doesn't seem to have helped.

You have to free the propellor to get it to free spin. there is a screw at the base this will give you access to the propellor.its a torc screw. when you get to propellor spin it with your hand and it will free up.

most bosch have the inlet valve at the end of the fill pipe and it has an anti-flood device.
try turning off the water, take off the fill pipe then reconnect it and see if this works.
taking off the fill pipe resets the anti-flood device
Hello Mimhoff it depends on how much water is down there. The sump area always has a little water in it to prevent the circulation pump seals from sticking. Usually around 1 to 2 inches. If there is more than that, check the slots at the bottom of the sump on the left side for being clogged and check the end of the drain hose to make sure it is clear. If you are getting a moldy/odor from the dishwasher, try running Dishwasher Magic or Tang thru the dishwasher. This will remove any build up of food or detergent from the dishwasher. If you are running the dishwasher every few days and just scraping your dishes, then either leave the door ajar or run the rinse & hold cycle to help keep the odor down. Bosch doesn't reccommend running bleach thru the dishwasher as this can cause damage to the rubber seals. However 2 tablespoons of bleach once a year won't hurt.
is all the water draining from the tub? if not the pressure switch will not reset and it will continue to try and clear it self...check drainage system.
2. pressure switch is jammed on..build up in the sensing chamber..common..or switch faulty...rarely
3. if water is in the bottom panel most have a flood switch which automatically operates the pump in case its over filling
