We love our new Bosch but... THE BEEPING IS TERRIBLE!!! I put a load in to wash when we go to bed. The beeping wakes us up. It is BAD!!

It sounds like there's a problem in the water inlet system. The machine repeats the process several times because of the Restart Feature which retries starting the machine to correct the problem. The machine completely stops and sounds the alarm because the Restart Feature failed to correct the problem. The fault code is indicated as a series of flashing Wash Progress LEDs.
Indicate explicitly which among the Wash Progress LEDs are lit or flashing to determine what and where the problem really is for further troubleshooting.

Firstly,I am not a service technician,I am a mechanical fitter, I do however try to find solutions to problems before calling the pro's.Sometimes,and in this case it works.
3,5,7,8 code lights indicate an "out of balance fault" Fault 43 according to F&P, It is not a hard job to fix, you will need a new/second hand micro-switch and possibly 2 female spade electrical connectors,a pair of crimping pliers, a star/philips head screwdriver,and a flat blade screwdriver.
Firstly you need to electrically isolate the machine, ie. pull the plug from the power outlet. Then remove the 2 screws at the back of the control pannel,lift from the back and it unclips at the front, lay it on its face. We need to get access to the out of balance switch which it to the right of and under the electrionic control box.Remove the single screw holding the electonics box(black box) and move wires so as to allow the box to be lifted up just enough out of the way to access the switch. Use a flat blade srewdriver or strong fingers to unclip and remove the microswitch, replace the switch but inspect the spade terminals for corrosion, replace if corroded. There is a waterproof upgrade for this problem from your dealer. Or you can do what I did and get some spare switches from other electronic devises, they are quite common. The part number for the switches I am using is 120727C.Mine came from the door switch of a microwave oven, but before pulling apart your microwave read up on them as they have a different set of safety rules. Good Luck with it.
