Are you using a rinse aid? if so and teh dishes are still not drying properly, try adjusting the setting for the rinse aid dispenser. Open the door of the dishwasher, open the flap where you pour in the rinse aid and look for the cirlce with the arrow and nunbers on it. If it is set low (1 or 2) try turning the arrow to a higher number. If that adjustment doesn't work, increase again and again until the dishes are dry.
Welcome to Fixya ! You've come to the right place.
The problem you're experiencing unfortunately is a common one. The water inlet valve has been an issue with B/S/H built ( this includes bosch, thermador, seimens & gaggenau ) dishwasher's going back to the mid 90's.
The part to repair it is available at most brick & mortar appliance part centers or you can check out on-line vendors such as repairclinic, apwagner etc. Do a search for part # 1105846 at repairclinic, you'll see what I'm talikng about. By the way it's about $35.
Hope that helps move you forward. Let me know if I can assist you further, or need help on how to change it etc. It's relatively easy with Bosch. Thanks for coming to "fixya" for your inquiries and please take a second to rate this answer according to my helpfulness.
If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
Drain line/air gap--A clog in this part is the usual
reason that a dishwasher doesn't drain. Remove the drain line to clear
any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line
connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
Pump--You can reach the pump from inside the
dishwasher. Remove the lower rack, spray arm and support. Look for an
impeller, a device that spins around and forces water through the spray
arm. This is the wash impeller and beneath it is the drain impeller
that pushes the water into the drain port. Replace it if found
defective or worn out.
Drain valve/solenoid---The drain valve may have a
solenoid with lever that sticks or frozen and prevents the dishwasher
from draining. Free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever.
Belt---A certain brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. Replace it if broken or worn out.
Motor---Check it if turning or working.Turn the rotor
manually to see if stuck and free it up. Replace if defective, it is
I would run the heated dry cycle a few times to try and get rid of that residual water, then restart the cycle and see if it work now. If it still is a problem try cleaning out the drain line behind the dishwasher, this is a very common problem with draining. If not that then might need a valve or if you have a new garbage disposal you need to punch out a peice of the plastic or it wont drain. Hope this helped, good luck
