Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher
Recently came back from a weekend trip to discover dishwasher still running after 48 hours. Apparently there was some cloggage in the garbage disposal and that prevented the dishwasher from draining. Reset the Disposal and ran the dishwasher to discover that it was draining properly, but no longer filling with water. First step: Checked water lines and inlet valve for clear flow. Everything ok. With water valve removed from unit, applied 115VAC to test. Unit functioning. Reassembled valve and inlet. Still no water. Second step: Assumed then that an overheat may have caused a solder meltdown in the control unit which is common to these dishwashers. Discovered a hot spot on one of the solenoids in the control unit and a solder brake around a terminal. Re-soldierd terminal and reassembled unit. Still no water. Third step: Checking power to unit now....
Yup, that was it. Discoverd that the tray had some water in the float area where there is a bit deeper reservour than the rest of the tray, which was just damp. Didn't notice the float was switching the unit off until I got my hands under there are pushed the float down. Then it all made sense. No repair bills for me thankfully!

Similar problem for us turned out to be water accumulating in the tray which set off the float switch. I vacuumed the water out and function returned to normal. However, we are now facing a repairman's assertion the clay in our well clogged the water inlet systems necessitating $285 in repair parts and labor.
