At start up the machine goes directly to CLEAN after about 2 minutes
Step 1:Have the same problem with my dishwasher Bosch SHE4AM12UC. Bosch authorized repaiman has been out 3 times and changed main power board module 3 times, on the manufactures recommendation--he's given up fixing it and Bosch won't help either, just tells me to call somebody else on their list and get a second opinion (of course at my expense for labor). Anyway, steps are listed below that have worked for me to keep it limping along until I can get this figured out hoe to fix it.
Step 2:When you start machine listen for drain pump to start up. Open door and you will hear sucking noise if it is running drain pump.
Step 3:While you have door open, hold in start button and close door (this may take several times doing this) . Listen for the water to start to fill and wash pump will start (you will hear water spraying around from was arms). Machine will start and run normal cycle once this happens. If you don't hear this within a couple of seconds of procedure above, repeat the sequence until it works. Remember i said it may take 2-3 times to make it go.
Step 4:Hope this helps. I'll keep trying to figure this out and come up with a solution. Forget trying to get anything done from Bosch or their "authorized" repair people as neither of them have a clue on how to solve the problem.
