Bosch dishwasher fills with water after cycle is completed
I don't know exactly which model I have but am having a very strange problem. The wash cycle runs just fine and the water drains during the cycle - there is no water in the bottom when the cycle is completed. But than hours later the bottom has filled completely with water and overflows onto the floor. What can be causing this? Electronics?

There is an anti flood valve on the bottom of the unit. IT could be sticking or have a bad connection. IT should look like a dome shaped housing on the bottom of the tub. If that is not the problem then you are looking at further troubleshooting to see if it is the contoller.
this sounds like flow sensor failure,it it fails machine will either not fill up or fill and drain without washing its a cheap part to replace and is fitted downstream of inlet valve behind l/h/s side panel either attached to inle hose or heat exchanger.
Here is an excerpt from "Bosch Dishwasher Troublesoooting".
Running a Test Cycle
Bosch dishwashers have a test cycle which can be run as a troubleshooting
measure. The method to run this test cycle is similar across the Bosch
dishwasher range so if your dishwasher features seems different from those
described below then try experimenting, as the process is fairly straight
forward and will be very similar. Bosch dishwasher model numbers are usually
found around the top or lip of the door. One of the most common differences
between dishwasher models is simply the names of the buttons. For example in
the first example below, POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH may be called WASH
and ECO depending on your dishwasher model and the country you are in. The
other key difference is whether your dishwasher has a display panel (which can
display error codes) or not (in which case a program light will illuminate to
tell you the fault.
To run the test cycle hold down the POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH
buttons. Whilst held down press the ON/OFF button. The lights above them should
flash. Now you can check the status of each dishwasher program by pressing its
button. Now you can run the full test cycle = Press the POWER SCRUB PLUS and
REGULAR WASH buttons again. The dishwasher will start up and when the cycle has
ended one, if you have no display panel on your dishwasher model the indicator
lights will illuminate if a malfunction was detected as follows -
CLEAN - A temperature sensor fault. If this is the case then the test cycle
will be very short as the dishwasher will terminate the test once it's been
RINSE/DRY - A water sensor/filling fault. If this is the problem then the
test cycle will not complete as the dishwasher cannot detect the right level of
water, the dishwasher will just keep filling and draining again.
WASH - A heating fault. Check your heating element.
If you do have a display panel on your Bosch dishwasher then after the cycle
is complete an error code will be shown if a fault has been detected. The error
codes are as follows -
0 - No errors have been detected.
1 - A water sensor/filling fault.
2 - A heating fault.
4 - A water filling fault. This can also appear as F on the display during a
8 - A temperature sensor fault.
When troubleshooting your Bosch dishwasher, running
the above test cycle is a good start in diagnosing the problem and should give
you an idea of where the problem lies with your Bosch dishwasher and what fixes
and repair are in order. Our general troubleshooting page will give you some
ideas on other things to check on your dishwasher. Good luck!
Unfortunately, it seems that the heating element has failed. The dishwasher uses steam to heat the tub to dry the dishes. I suspect your dishes are also being washed in cold water.
To check this, please run a regular full wash cycle. Allow the washer to fill with water and run for about 10 minutes, then open the door and feel the water temperature in the bottom of the washer. If the water is cold, it's more than likely the heating element has failed.
There are other possible faults which would cause the element not to heat, but these often prevent the dishwasher from completing the cycle. If the water is cold but the dishwasher still drains the water at the end - and completes the cycle - the heating element has probably failed.
Please try this simple test for water temperature and let me know if you need further assistance.
I had the same problem with no water coming in. Each model may be different, but i solved the problem by holding down the clean drain button for 5 seconds. On my model, it is two buttons simultaneously, then closed the door and waited for the washer to cycle through. Once completed, turn off and then back on again to run normal load. If this does not help. Call Bosch Directly.
