Question about Bosch SHX43R55UC Dishwashers : Built in Dishwasher
When manually moving the red arm on the float I can get the drain pump to kick on if it is raised and shuts off when it is lowered. Putting my voltage meter on the float switch I get continuity to change from the top to middle when it is up and from the top to the bottom when switch is down

possibly the inlet water valve stuck open tho this is rare.
disconnect the valve electrically and see if the fault is still present. if so, the valve is stuck open and needs replacing

The fill valve is governed by the float switch. I doubt that your fill valve (solenoid) has failed.
Focus on replacing the float switch and you should be all set.

Sounds like an overfill problem - the symptoms are consistent with a failed pressure switch. Water enters the dishwasher through a chamber which has a float arm connected to a small microswitch -this is the pressure switch. The concept is similar to that of the float switch for the aqua-stop system.
As the water level in the dishwasher rises, the water level rises in this chamber. Once the dishwasher and the chamber are full, water pressure trips this switch, closing the water inlet valve and the wash cycle then starts.
If the pressure switch doesn't trip, the water level continues to rise and this trips the overfill float switch. This closes the water inlet valve and starts the drain pump. Once the water level has dropped the dishwasher attempts to fill again, but the pressure switch remains closed and the cycle repeats - ad infinitum.
To check the pressure switch you will need the remove the left side panel (when facing the door) and a multi-meter to test the switch with. If you have the necessary equipment and skills to attempt this repair yourself (seems like you do) please let me know and I will provide the relevant details.
