Your machine has detected a "flood" condition and has defaulted to its flood mode. Meaning that only the drain pump will work until the flood is fixed.
Bosch D/W's are pretty slick, the entire unit is sitting inside a drain pan that's designed to catch an overflow (flood) keeping the water off of your floor. This overflow pan has a Styrofoam float that rises with the flood and trips the "flood mode". The water in the pan has to be removed allowing the float to drop back down before you can use your dishwasher again.
There are 2 ways to do this... the easy way and the hard way.
1.) Easy way---> Wait a few days. The water will eventually evaporate out of the drain pan all by itself. Takes longer than the hard way, but no tools are involved.
2.) Hard way---> (not actually "hard") TURN POWER OFF TO THE DISHWASHER! Remove the lower kick panels (below the door). Remove the 2 screws holding the water valve in place, and push the valve up as far as you can. Now use a "Shop-Vac" with a long crevice tool attachment. Stick the crevice tool in where the valve was... make sure to reach in there about 8 or 9 inches, (the safety float is in there on the left, you can see it with a flashlight) otherwise it won't reach the water. Now simply suck up as much water as you can. You won't be able to get it all, you just need enough removed to drop the float.
Now try your D/W... after a normal 2 minute drain, it should fire right up.

my bosch dishwasher will not reset after holding cancel and drain. It seems to want to run a cycle but will not...help please!!!
Try turning off the power from the breaker for 3 minutes and then restarting it!
This should reboot the system!
I hope that this is all you need to get moving again.
Let me know how it works!!

cause is water in the bottom tray which operates an anti-flood switch and all machine will do is drain.
disconnect from mains
remove bottom panel and mop out water and it will work. if fault re-occurs, then you have a leak which you will have to identify
