There should be a thermal fuse located inside the console on the control board. Most dishwashers have them mounted this way. It's a white square plastic piece, or silver component with two wires connected to it. If the thermal fuse is bad it will give the same symptoms you are describing. To check, you need to turn off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher and remove the screws holding the console in place. This should be the four or five screws at the top of the door (with the door open). Carefully lift the console off the door (support the wires) and flip it over so you can see the control board. The thermal fuse should be mounted somewhere on the control board. The fuse will read a SHORT if good, an OPEN if bad. The fuse is not resettable (meaning you can't reuse it) and must be replaced. If you need further assistance let me know. I hope this helps you. PS There should be a tech sheet located inside the lower kick panel under the door. This includes all the schematics and troubleshooting tips. You may use this as a reference too.

This sounds like a bad timer. The timer is what tells the pump to drain at specified times. If it gets a bad contact, that timed cycle won't happen.
PS: Do you know for sure that the drain is occurring in mid-cycle? If not, you may just have an obstruction in the drain and/or anti-siphon valve (where the hose connects under the dishwasher.

Bosch D/w Have a float switchin the base pan of the unit you can access by removing the toe kick, if there is water in this base pan it turns the drain pump on and will not do anything else. So until the water is removed either vacume it out , or let it evaporate or however the unit will only drain

There is a small replacable part on the control panel circuit board which is like a fuse. It actually is a temperature fuse and it blows when the environment gets too hot for the circuit board. Unplug the dishwasher and take the door apart so you can see the circuit board. If you trace the power wires one of them leads to a little white module with 2 electrical tabs. Unplug the 2 wires and unsnap the module. You can check it with an ohm meter. IF its good the meter will register almost a short. f it's bad it will be open. The parts place I went to didn't even need a model number and he says he goes through a lot of them.
