Question about Bosch 24 in. SHX46A05 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
We went away for a couple of days, I turned on the DW before leaving. When we came back, it was still making the whirring sound - like trying to drain the water. I briefly noticed the lights (I think many of them were on but didn't pay much attention to it at the time). The dishes looked clean, but I don't think it had kicked in the dry cycle. I opened the catch at the bottom and found a small metal ball (bearing?) and a flat black disk in the catch. I cleaned it out, restarted the machine on a quick wash cycle and a few hours later, itwas still going - it usually takes about 1.5 hours to finish. Same as before. Any ideas? Thanks.
Bosch SHX46A05UC about 3.5 years old.

first if the pump is running and you can hear it washing it should clean now hot water cleans dishes not the washer the hotter the better at least 130-135 degrees modern dish washers use less water than older models so if you don't get the water as hot as you can stand it at the sink before you turn the washer on you can fill it with cold water second its important that you use jet dry and if your dishes aren't dry at the end of the cycle then on most washers you can turn the disp up for more hope that helps let me know

Check drain hose first.
If you do not find any blockage, then you will need to access the pump, remove pump hose and look for blockage in there.
If there is no blockage at all, then either the water level switch, a faulty pump, a wiring problem, or a faulty timer board can be cause the machine not draining.

I ran into the SAME problem with my Bosch SHX46A06UC /21. The problem ultimately ended up being a clog in the air gap vent, (meaning, SOMEBODY ran the dishwasher without the bottom filter being in place or not in place properly). Remove the air gap cover and upper surface nut to drop the air gap vent into the area under the sink. Disconnect the hoses from the air gap vent filter (placing a bucket under the hose from the dishwasher). Run the drain cycle on the dishwasher. The washer should drain into the bucket and let you know that your pump works and that there are no clogs or kinks in the drain hose. (This will also remove the clog if so). The air gap vent's smaller hose connection is MOST LIKELY where your clog is. Look at the upper end of the air gap vent. You'll see a couple of clips on opposite sides of each other, that hold the air vent cap in place. Using a small screwdriver, (or your hands if you can), depress the clips (or one at a time) to get to the point where you can pull the vent cap off the filter. Either use water or a thin, long blade screwdriver to force any objects out of the filter. You should now have full flow through both branches of the filter. Using water and a rag, clean the vent cap and filter. Mount the air gap vent filter back onto the sink. Reconnect the hoses and remove the dishwasher's internal filter(s) and clean them as well while you're at it, making sure to remove any debris that might remain underneath the filter and has the chance of clogging the unit again.
Run the washer again to test. You should be good!
