Question about Bosch Washing Machines
So this dishwasher is really not designed to "beep" when there is an error even if there was a problem. In fact, if there was an issue, the most that you'd ever notice aside from a performance in how well the dishes clean, is that the cycle might never finish and continue to run forever. If it's beeping in the middle of a cycle, this is not a problem with the unit draining, this is a problem with the control board itself. There is a control board inside the door in the upper right hand corner that you'd need to replace. You can try to turn the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds to see if the electronics will reset, but if that doesn't work, you'll need to order and replace the control board.

If the machine runs perfectly, and depending upon its age and what your plans and finances are at right now, you could get a Technician to disconnect the Beeper on the Control Board.
YOu will then be able to use your machine without the annoying beep.
It all depends what you want to do overall with it. Use it to death or pay for what may well be quite a costly repair for a simple fault which might only be able to be fixed by complete board replacement.

i have checked all my tech info and error codes only go to f 12!! never had f 17 but based on description sounds like either flow sensor or inlet valve failure will need service tech to sort out but if either of these will not be expensive.

The two error codes together indicate you have something restricting the drainage system. "F02"is a Long Drain error code, "SUDS" occurs when too much air is sensed in the drainage system. In most cases, the drain pump reservoir needs to be cleaned out. The following link explains how:
If you check the drain pump reservoir and the problem still persists, you may have a pump with a damaged motor/impeller, or something lodged in one of the drain lines. In particular, the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the pump.
I recommend you remove the inlet hose, first and inspect for clogs. In is common for small garments to become lodged in this area and restrict water flow to the drain pump. Check the output drain line for obstructions as well.
It does not take much to damage this small drain pumps. The error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes. So...if the impeller or motor become damaged, and the pump does not pull water at the correct volume, you may still experience the drain error. In this case, you will have to replace the pump in order to get the error to clear. The following link explains how:
Replacements can be purchased at any of the following websites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
