Question about Bosch 24 in. SHY56A05 Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher
Problem is with a three year old Bosch SHY56A05UC /14 dishwasher.
It started with the unit not circulating water through the spray arms. Bosch sent a tech and diagnosed a bad circlulator pump. Returned with circulator pump and replaced. Started unit and had no water coming in. Found that solenoid valve screen was blocked with debris from moving the feed hose around and dislodging debris in hose. Replaced solenoid and water feed hose, flushed out line, re-connected and tested the unit. Water was flowing and new circulator pump was working properly. At that time cancel drain selection was pressed and drained. A regular wash cycle was started and the tech left. After the cycle ended and dried we checked the unit and found water still in the bottom, it had not drained. We put it through the cancel drain cycle and it drained. We scheduled service again. While waiting for service (weeks) we made several attempts to run a full or quick cycle, it would intermitenly work, sometimes it would drain initially when started then not at the end of the cycle. Other times the cancel drain would not work. The tech returned and diagnosed a bad control board and replaced. Tested the cancel drain mode and left. We started a full wash cycle and when it was finished there was more water in the bottom. So it's been 49 days without a dishwasher and factory service another 14 days out and the holiday next week we're at our wits end. Some other points; when you start the cancel drain a noise can be heard like it wants to start.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Have you removed the filter? if it gets clogged the dishwasher wont drain. other wise is sounds like a faulty drain pump

Sounds like a blockage. Our 7 year old model has done it for a couple of years.. Take it out turn it over (emptying first) and hope for the best.
