Re: Bosch dishwasher will not cycle. Water in base
First...make sure you visit the Bosch dishwasher recall website as this model is under the recall with a faulty controller which may cause a fire! Check your model under http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/
then call 800.856.9226 to setup a recall repair appointment. We just found out about this recall and was never notified by Bosch even though we registered our unit after we purchased it...talk about poor customer service! Hope this helps!

There is a recall repair notice for this model (and several other models) on the Bosch website. There is a faulty controller which may cause a fire! They have an 800 number for setting up a recall repair appointment. Check it out! We just found out by accident of the recall...we were never notified, even though we registered our Bosch SHU33UC unit when we bought it...poor customer service!
sounds like the float is up and unit is in drain mode.if its only humming that is the problem. there is water in. the base.take off side panel and reach in the base with something to dry the bas out. normally this is caused by a leaking hose. if this doesnt fix problem post the question follow up. thanks
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.
You have water in the base of the machine. There is a flood float in the bottom so if any water gets into the base, it will shut off the water and run the drain pump as long as the power button is on. So shut off the breaker, remove the toe kick, and remove any water that is down there. Now start the machine and see if water is leaking into the base. If there isn't any water, an the dw is still running the drain pump, then with a wooden spoon raise the red plastice stick on the left side of the dishwasher up and down. It is possible that the overfil float is stuck. If this makes the dw start filling, then run cooking oil thru the dishwasher on the scrub cycle to remove excessive detergent. If you are in hard water, then the water deposits have caused this. Run citric acid ( Tang orange drink, Dishwasher Magic, or such) thru the dishwasher to remove this.
fault is that there is a leak. the tray at base of dishwasher is full of water which operates a float and turns on drain pump. tilt over 45deg and water will run out and then it will work or remove bottom front panel and mop out (better). then find leak
