Hi, Welcome to FixYa. Based on your description that the dishwasher is indeed filling with water but not circulating, It sounds like a busted wash impeller within the main motor/circulation pump. First though, do you hear a quiet sound ( it will be super quiet if the wash impeller is broke so you have to either get right down with your ear to the bottom or run it with the door open by activating the door switch with a screw-driver ) of a motor once the unit has completed filling with water ? If so that is a tell tale of no wash action yet the motor runs, hence broken impeller. If you don't hear anything it may be a wire come off the main motor/circulation pump...but not likely. Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there. Good luck, Macmarkus :)

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description, "clean light stays on" this is actually an error code as you may or may not know associated with the heating process. What typically happens is poor water circulation preventing the water from heating properly.
To resolve this, I'd start with the following...the wash pump area. You`ll need to follow these steps to clean it.
1 ) Remove the turbo wash tube if applicable to your model, it pulls off, i.e.
2 ) Spray arm removal. hold the center nut and spin the arm.
3 ) Now you can remove the upper spray arm supply tub or referred to sometimes as "rear feed cap".
a ) lift to depress the rear tab, i.e.
b ) Then twist the feeder to the right ( clockwise ), i.e.
4 ) Now you can remove the center nut...
Then remove the four # 20 torx head screws holding the filter in place, and lift the filter out.
Below the filter you`ll find food debris, undissolved detergent etc, but also a cover with a single #10 torx head screw to remove and the cover will pull straight up and out. the arrows from left to right in the image indicate...
1) screw location
2) tab to pull up on
3) the latch you may need to twist to the left to remove the cover
Now you should see the chopper and screen assembly, it too can be clogged up pretty bad, clean it best you can...you don`t really want to remove this part.
If my explanation is not clear enough, here`s a link which provides a pretty good video of how to do this, these guys aren`t pro`s but the "how to" video is pretty thorough nonetheless.
Once these actions have been performed you'll need to clear the error code. to do so is as follows. Press the following buttons in this sequence...
HEATED DRY - NORMAL, HEATED DRY - NORMAL, HEATED DRY - NORMAL
This diagnostic cycle may take approx. 15-20 minutes to complete. Let it proceed through to completion and you should be good to go...unless the heater itself is at fault or a wire has vibrated loose from the heater...those are steps to follow if OR when necessary.
Let me know how you make out, please keep me informed if you need further assistance or anything is unclear. Please take a moment to rate me assistance and a short testimony is appreciated as well.
Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand you have a problem with a Bosch dishwasher as you described, "dispenser doesn't open. replaced with new one, ran a cycle and it still doesn't open". I should be able to help, but I have a couple of questions. 1) What type of detergent do you use. 2) Does the machine complete it's cycle, or do you stop it manually. 3) Finally, have you tried a cycle without detergent in the dispenser to see if it opens ? When you reply I would like to verify the model so If you can provide the entire number, including the two digits after the forward slash, i.e. 06, 12 etc. It is on inside of door frame or tub frame around door opening as shown here for bosch.
...I'll see what I can find for you.
There are many possible scenarios even within the Bosch line so I'll need to clarify the entire model before moving forward.
