SOURCE: Bosch SHU4312 won't finish cycle, won't drain.

The control board on these units is prone to a cold solder joint cracking. I have read that Bosch recommends replacement and will supply the board, not covering labor. I repaired mine prior and have done one for a friend as well. Has lasted several years and counting
The symptom is constant cycling without ticking down the last few minutes

SOURCE: water wont fill

first of all, i'm gonna guess that the water supply under the sink is turned on.
the water you hear is the left over water from a previous cycle. there is always some left in the hoses after it drains, just like your washer.
this is 1 of 2 things. either your float is stuck in the up position or your water inlet valve is malfunctioning. the float is the quick and easy fix. the float is somewhere inside your dishwasher. it tells the water to stop coming in when it reaches a certain height, just like your toilet. it could look like anything, but most likely a cone or a little hat. just grab it and try to move it up and down. it should slide freely. it was probably stuck up and your handling will have solved the problem. we hope.
if the float was ok, the inlet valve needs checked or replaced. it is under the machine and has the water supply line hooked up to it. good luck

Why doesn't the clean light come on at end of cycle of my Bosch dishwasher?

It's an energy-saving feature. This is one of the ways the DW gets a good Energy Star rating. Having a light come on and stay on would use electricity. Depending on the model, it will tell you when it is working (red light, projected graphic, etc.), and when it no longer says it is working, then it's done. No light necessary.

I have a broken cross line Bosch LL-40 laser level. fell 10 feet will not come on. Red light at top of laser comes on but cross lines will not.

Well, you seem to have stated your problem well. Either send the unit for repairs or get a new one.

Bosch dishwasher starts, pumps, stops and says it's clean

We have the exact same problem with our Bosch SHE5AL06UC/05 dishwasher. Works great when it works, but we are increasingly having a hard time getting the wash cycle to start.

On starting up the washer makes 5 low growling noises then times out with the end and check water lights on

You might also want to check the water inlet screen, if you have calcium in your water it may be plugged. The screen is located at the water connection to the solenoid valve.

Bosch GWH 715 ES flashing EA code. This unit was working fine for over a year so I am assuming gas pressure can't be the problem? The spark is flashing and the unit lights for about 2 seconds then...

Above are the manuals required to diagnose and service your error code.

EA: No flame ionization detected with water flow.
Verify that all manual gas shut off valves are open. Check gas type. Reset error code and open a water tap to cycle the heater in an effort to purge air on new installations. Cycling hot water tap on and off multiple times may be necessary. If heater still faults with EA error code, have a licensed gas technician properly purge air out of the gas line leading to the water heater. Check three wire connections to ignition group on the lower front of the heat exchanger are secure. Check gas pressure. Check venting specifications are met. Improper venting may cause premature failure of the flame sensor rod. Check that the minimum power fan speed has been adjusted to the proper value. Observe inside the viewing window of the heat exchanger when a hot water tap is opened. Sparking should be followed by a steady blue flame. If flame is unstable or yellow with proper gas pressure.

Our bosch dishwasher stops at 1 minute on screen and never advances Since we believe it is under 5 years and the electronic panel should be covered, how should we proceed Model SHE44C06UC/40 Serial...

You need a new microprocessor. Same thing happened to me. Normal cycle runs down to one minute and stops there, running, for maybe another hour or more. Then, when it finally ends, the dishes are not clean or dry. Get the microprocessor replaced. It is Chinese junk. It is an easy fix, but the replacement will last only four or five years.

AE115 is 2 years old and stopped heating the water. The red light is very, very dim which tells me it's a power problem. I've had no problems at all until now. I replaced the two 40 fuses and that did not...

Here are some possibilities and checks.
  1. The high temperature thermal cut-out has tripped. This would general shut off the Neon Light as well as the elements. However, even though your light is on check anyways.
  2. The flow switch not activating, Shut off the power to unit. Open the unit and observe if the flow switch activates when the water is turned on. If not then you have a faulty flow switch.
  3. Water flow to high. Turn the hot water tap on at the sink, adjust the outlet service valve until the water comes out of the tap at the required temperature, increase flow for cooler, decrease for hotter.
  4. The power selector screw not turned all the way to high. Check and turn all the way to high
  5. Element not working. Turn of the electricity to unit and test the resistance of the element. Here are the proper resistance for the element (240 volts, 40amps has a resistance of 2x12ohms) if no resistance than one or both elements need replacement.
I hope this gives you some more areas to check. Thanks for using FIXYA, Good Luck to you and have a great weekend. Jeff

Washer only seems to work on 40 degree cycle

check to see if this model has 2 water inlet hoses
if there is 2 only 1 may be used and is connected to hot tap thus only letting in hot water when machine requires water
