I experienced exactly the same problem with this Model. The handbook says code E4 is an overfill problem and in my case because the filter had become blocked, water had somehow found its way into the base of the washer (where all the electrical stuff is) and activated the anti-flood device. The solution is to simply get the water out of the base. Making sure the unit was switched off at the mains, I removed the wooden kick-board from under the kitchen units and the screws securing the washer to the units. I then lowered the 2 front height adjusting legs so that the washer was slightly tilted down at the front. There are 2 black plastic access covers at the bottom of the unit which can be gently prised out and then use a cloth/sponge, removed all the water that had collected in the base. This cured the problem without the hassle of removing the washer altogether.

The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to to find out more info.

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on....

From your description, I doubt that the problem is door latch is the cause.
The first thing that a modern dishwasher does before it begins to fill with water is run the drain pump.  It appears that this DW is not progressing to the next cycle (inlet water) and because the pump runs even when the door is open, I agree that the controller card may have failed.
If possible, inspect all the wire connections (remove main power before you do this) ... if there is a loose connection, the controller could do odd things.
Good Luck!  Please report back what you find, OK?

Water won't go out of the dishwasher

Begin at your sink drain that the dishwasher drain hose connects to. Disconnect the hose and check both directions for anything plugging the connection.
Make sure the drain hose has not become "kinked"
(After you have emptied the water from the dishwasher) remove the lower spray arm and the filter in the sump area. Look for obstructions and remove all debris. Rinse the filter thoroughly and reassemble.
If you dishwasher has a timer on the front of the dishwasher that you can manually turn, start a quick cycle with no DW soap and empty.
Allow the water to run in for several seconds and then manually (slowly, gently) turn the timer knob until the DW should begin draining the DW. Listen closely for the sound of the pump motor running.Is water properly draining out of the dishwasher into the drain?
After you have done these things, please post back here and we can take the next steps. OK?

Bosch DW doesn't start/panel doesn't light up/but unit has power

Try to turn off the power at the circuit breaker box, leave off for 5 mins and then turn back on and try to see if the panel resets itself. It may work or it may not.

Integrated dishwasher DW009,

If this is an asko dishwasher , most times this problem is caused by water getting into the base pan and setting off the float switch. Turn off the power and take the toe kick off, behind there is a pan runs under the motor and sump if there is water in it clean it out. that will take care of the problem. but you will need to watch and see if you can tell where the water came from sometimes on those unit its just from too much detergent

Certainly sounds like the float is stuck in the over filled position or possible a bad float switch. Could also be a bad water fill valve - if you can blow air through it when removed then you need to replace it. You can follow this link to troubleshoot your washer, but note that its not exactly for your model - Good luck!
