Bosch dishwasher model: SGS56E02 will not complete a cycle.
SGS56E02 will not complete a cycle but goes on forever. Usually when the display show a minute to go it just keeps on washing ad infinitum. We tried the reset buttons and turning the power off for hours but the problem continues. Only the pre-rinse cycle work normally.
The machine is over five years old and I wonder if it is worth the repair and call-out charge.

The dishwasher must get to 70c to advance thru the heating cycle.. check to see if the heater is coming on( lots of steam coming out when you open the door )..not getting hot then you could have a heater problem. if you are getting hot then you have a Thermo ... the thermo holds the the dishwasher until the temp reaches 70c before it will let it go into the next cycle...the thermo is under the dishwasher at the right side, white with two wires .. it screws into the tub...hope it helps it not let me know and I can help you more...

Here is an excerpt from "Bosch Dishwasher Troublesoooting".
Running a Test Cycle
Bosch dishwashers have a test cycle which can be run as a troubleshooting
measure. The method to run this test cycle is similar across the Bosch
dishwasher range so if your dishwasher features seems different from those
described below then try experimenting, as the process is fairly straight
forward and will be very similar. Bosch dishwasher model numbers are usually
found around the top or lip of the door. One of the most common differences
between dishwasher models is simply the names of the buttons. For example in
the first example below, POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH may be called WASH
and ECO depending on your dishwasher model and the country you are in. The
other key difference is whether your dishwasher has a display panel (which can
display error codes) or not (in which case a program light will illuminate to
tell you the fault.
To run the test cycle hold down the POWER SCRUB PLUS and REGULAR WASH
buttons. Whilst held down press the ON/OFF button. The lights above them should
flash. Now you can check the status of each dishwasher program by pressing its
button. Now you can run the full test cycle = Press the POWER SCRUB PLUS and
REGULAR WASH buttons again. The dishwasher will start up and when the cycle has
ended one, if you have no display panel on your dishwasher model the indicator
lights will illuminate if a malfunction was detected as follows -
CLEAN - A temperature sensor fault. If this is the case then the test cycle
will be very short as the dishwasher will terminate the test once it's been
RINSE/DRY - A water sensor/filling fault. If this is the problem then the
test cycle will not complete as the dishwasher cannot detect the right level of
water, the dishwasher will just keep filling and draining again.
WASH - A heating fault. Check your heating element.
If you do have a display panel on your Bosch dishwasher then after the cycle
is complete an error code will be shown if a fault has been detected. The error
codes are as follows -
0 - No errors have been detected.
1 - A water sensor/filling fault.
2 - A heating fault.
4 - A water filling fault. This can also appear as F on the display during a
8 - A temperature sensor fault.
When troubleshooting your Bosch dishwasher, running
the above test cycle is a good start in diagnosing the problem and should give
you an idea of where the problem lies with your Bosch dishwasher and what fixes
and repair are in order. Our general troubleshooting page will give you some
ideas on other things to check on your dishwasher. Good luck!
Th Bosch units are prone to circuit board failure and this is the common symptom. If you are electronically inclined go the applianceaid.com and search Bosch for test codes to pinpoint the issue.There is an online picture of the faulty relay solder joint I repaired mine and a neighbors, Bosch will in some cases supply parts at no charge and they do not recommend repair, however IMHO it is a repairable cold solder joint very visible on the board. If you are good with needle tip soldering iron you are in luck
Bosch SHE44C06UC The dishwasher continues to run...I followed instructions and performed the diagnostic...the light above the quick wash was solid, the light above the rinse/hold was flashing...the code displayed in the cycle countdown window was P0...now assuming the machins isn't "pissed-off"..can you help-
UNfortunately that sounds like the controle module and you can not have that fixed. only replacement of the part will fix that problem
