I'm not sure of the model number. This is a basic Bosch dishwasher that I bought about 3 or 4 years ago. Twice the wash cycle has gotten stuck on drain, and will not progress through the cycle. We had it fixed last year and a few days ago it happened again. The first time, we thought it might be due to plumbing problems, but those have been fixed. We are careful to use the right amount and type of soap. We don't know what happened this time, and are considering giving up on this machine.
I had this problem with mine. I had a service guy come out and he took the main board out and soddered a paper clip to it and said I wouldn't have the problem agian, he said the resister or transistor or some thing like that was to week, and that this should fix it. It did for about a year. so I took it apart the next time and soddered the same spot and it work for about 3 months, after that I finally broke down and bough a new board $140 buck from appliancepartspros.com and it worked great.
I now have a drainning problem. me and this bosch have a love hate relationship. when it works I love it, when it doesn't....
We have the same problem the machine runs on drain cycle only and thats all. i tried everything i did the cancel cycle but that did not work or help, i shut the pwer off at the fuse box for 45 min (per a Bosch represenative) and that did not help. i called around to various repair places and they want to charge a fortune to come look at this. Is this a problem worth fixing or should i move on to a different machine. j_wlk_r

On many Bosch dishwshers (especially those with the controls on top), they expect your to press the appropriate cycle and option(s) buttons, and then press the Start key, ALL WITH THE DOOR OPEN. Immediately after pressing the START button, close the door (within 3 seconds), and the dishwasher should start.
On other Bosch dishwashers, if you open the door, the poser button is automatically turned off. On those models, you must close the door, turn the Power button ON, and THEN press the appropriate cycle & options buttons. If your dishwasher has a START button, then press it; otherwise just wait 10 second with the door closed.
See? There is no such thing as a "basic bosch dishwasher". Next time, if you have a question, please provide the model number of your dishwasher (or other appliance).
It would help to know the model number of the dishwasher, but on many Bosch dishwashers, you can switch the cycle cycle completion signal off as follows:
1. While holding the right-handCANCEL/DRAIN button, also press and hold the ON/OFF button 2. When the LED above the CANCEL/DRAIN button illuminates and the beeping starts, release both buttons 3. Press the right CANCEL/DRAIN button repeatedly until the beeping tone is at the desired volume, i.e. silent! 4. Press the "ON/OFF" button again to set the volume.
On models with the wash cycle buttons on the top edge of the door, the CANCEL/DRAIN buttons aren't always explicitly labelled CANCEL/DRAIN. These buttons are also labelled RESET on some models.
On models with 3 and 4 wash cycle buttons, the right CANCEL/DRAIN button is the third button when reading from left to right. On models with 5 wash cycle buttons, the right CANCEL/DRAIN button is the fourth button when reading from left to right.
Please try the above then let me know if you need further assistance. Please state the model number or series (i.e. Integra) of your washer if/when replying.
You're describing a number of issues related to old age and maintenance. First, you've likely got a mechanical timer that is getting stuck. If the price of replacement is outside your budget for an old warhorse....
Second, in come cases, the timer takes care of water level...in most, however, there is a float or aeneroid level sensor. If it is a float...it may be clogged/jammed with detergent or debris. Located in the wash tub near the front. Clean it up. If it is an aeneroid, it has a tube going from the tub to the lower part which hooks into a 3 inch or so flat sided round item with two wires coming out. With the power off, test it by blowing and sucking on the tube. Blowing into it should open the switched leads ...sucking should hold a 'vacuum'. The pressure of water opens and closes this switch to determine water level.
