This just started happening a few days ago. I go to start the wash cycle, and the dishwasher comes on and sounds like it's doing its thing - but the water never fills, and it just sits there and hums. So I took the washer part way out and jiggled it around a bit, then started a new wash cycle again. when I wait a few minutes and open it up to check on it, the water is splashing around in there - but the wash cycle never really happens. The soap dispenser never opens, and it doesn't run through the whole cycle.
Then I wiggled it around some more, started a new wash cycle, and it seemed to work. It's washing (I think, I'm afraid to open it) right now - I can hear the water, I can hear the action. What's going on with this?
Hi there your dishwasher has gone into flood protection mode ie. water has leaked into the base and activated the float switch.
to try and locate the leak tip your d/w back to drain the water from the base then remove both side panels and start a program to see if you can see where the water is leaking from, being careful not to touch anything while the d/w is running as live parts are exposed

Reset the dishwasher by pressing and holding the "Start" button for at least three seconds. Depending upon the Bosch dishwasher model you have, you also can push the "Cancel-Reset" button to reset the dishwasher. Select a new cycle and press "Start."
this could mean there is water leak and it collects at the base of the dishwasher leading to moisture detection circuit tripping. when you leave it for a few days the water dries up and trip is removed. check door seals for leak most likely at the base of the door. turn power off when working on dishwasher.
OMG The raindance works. I am not sure what worked, but here is what I did: 1) boiled water and put it in the dishwasher. 2) Started pushing buttons to try to do the "Setting Options" on page 13 of the useless Bosch manual. After a bunch of button pushing -- none of the things actually happened that the manual said would happen, but the thing started and is going through a cycle -- not immediately stopping. Wish us all luck in dealing with this poorly engineered product.
Im really not all that familiar with the bosch unit, but a few things i would ck. when you cancel a cycle (it should drain the water) is it humming??? does it sound as if it even trickling into the sink discharge?? do you have a disposer under your sink that this unit drains into, if so remove the clamp and look for possible obstructions right there.Honestly passed this ill have to defer to someone else sorry and good luck
