Question about Dishwashers
We got our dishwasher about a year and a half ago. Apparently this is just long enough to be out of warranty. Bosch wants about $600 to come out and fix this thing but for that money I would rather get a new one (it will NOT be a Bosch). Anyway, I figure I've got nothing to lose but I'm gonna need some help. When you turn on the dishwasher it hums and makes noise and sprays a little water around in the bottom (there is about 1/2 a cup of water in the bottom that won't drain). Anyway, we called Bosch. One tech told us that it was the motherboard going bad. Another guy told us that it was the circulating pump. When they told us that it was going to cost roughly the same amount as what we paid for it to begin with I said nevermind. I'll do it myself and take my business elsewhere. Can you guys point me in the right direction to: 1) get this thing diagnosed correctly 2) get the right parts and get it fixed Thanks in advance for the help! -Jon

what is the model #?... there are 2 buttons when pushed together it will drain the water out..try the button to the left next to power scrub... and economy...hold the 2 buttons for 3 sec. you will hear you drain pump running.. if you don't hear any water draining out into your sink, you might have a clog d/w drain line.

The flood switch is tripped. This is located under the unit. Unplug or flip the breaker to the dishwasher, take off the black kick plate under the door, 2 screws, and you will see the white plastic "pan". The flood switch is located where you can't really see it but it is on the left hand side wall and is made of styrofoam. The best thing to do is to put some rags in the pan, this is not easy because there is little room to put them, and soak-up the water that has filled the pan. Eventually you will get enough water out that the float will deactivate the switch. What you hear "running" when you turn it on is actually the drain pump, it get activated when the flood switch is tripped.
