Question about Bosch 24 in. SHY66C02 / SHY66C06 Built-in Dishwasher
We just had it apart, and when we were done, it was filling fine. We ran it for a week and it seemed fine. In the middle of the most recent wash cycle, it got really loud, and now it just keeps trying to drain; after setting it to start a new cycle, it seems unable to fill. Worse, when the door is pulled open, it should "pause" - but it doesn't; it's as if the door hadn't been opened, though the cycle is in limbo because it can't fill.
This is a partial solution. After reading lots of other similar descriptions (none of which were automatically identified by FixYa, btw), we realized it was probably water in the 'catch basin' or whatever that pan (white plastic) below the sump pump is. Sure enough, there was about 1/2" of water in the pan. We hoped that by overriding the float switch and watching it run through a cycle, we would be able to see where the leak came from. Unfortunately, running a rinse & hold (10 min) didn't do it, so we are about to run it on a quick wash (56 min). To do this, we have left everything connected (power & water), and removed the toe kick cover, to give us access to the works below the main compartment. A long chopstick works well to get at the red float switch actuator; we used two of them to dip a washcloth in the water to soak, and then remove the washcloth and wring it over a bowl. Slow, and tedious. But the alternative was to do the 3 hr teardown just to get the pan dried before we could run it through a complete cycle. We're still hoping this will let us see the leak.

I know this may sound very silly but i had the same problem with mine and all i had to do was pull it out a bit as the drainage pipe at the back was only slightly sqashed against the cupboard but it does matter

SOURCE: dishwasher keeps running
Open up the door, get out the control unit. Pry open the unit's plastic case and look at the board. Burnt spot? If so, the heater circuit burnt out (happens a lot on Bosches) and the control is waiting for the water temp to rise, but of course it dosn't. Thus- long wash times.
