We keep filling up the dishwasher and switching it on and it keeps coming up with a light showing check water. We have emptied it many times and checked that the water coming in is ok and it seems to be. We keep having to turn off the water in valve for 5 minutes and then switch it back on again and off we go. When it reaches the end of the cycle we still have water in the machine and the water is dirty in the bottom tray where the water outlet is.

This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer.Do not"seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.If drain hose is checked ok then its confirmed problem of faulty water fill valve. the fill valve is leaking. When they go bad they can leak water without being told to by the timer. I would replace the fill valve after pulling the hose off the fill end and watching to see if water drips out.

Switch off the machine, unplug or disconnect the mains power to the machine and turn off the water supply to the machine.
Remove the access panel on the lower right front of the machine.
3.Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that depending on the machine type you may get a lot of water coming out of the filter when you remove it if the machine has not drained successfully. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood. 4.Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked. 5.Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required. 6.Reconnect the power and switch the machine on. If the problem persists then do the following. 7.Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power. 8.Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational. 9.Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage. 10.Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition. 11.Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on. 12.If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.
If it won't fill it may not spin or drain unless the water level switch is bypassed. I would check the water valve & the water level switch and tube from level switch to tub must be air tight no holes. The water level switch must kick in to agitate. I'm not sure on Bosch but some work like this..
This could be a clogged drain line especially if the drain connects to a disposal. Some drains are semi-transparrent and a good light will show the clog. I use a long piece of tubing (snake) to dislodge the clog.
Also, if this does connect to a disposal make sure the dishwasher drain hose is elavated when it leaves the disposal so disposal debris will not get in the dishwasher drain line. You may have to tie the drain line to keep it elavated.
