You're hosed. This is likely a bad control board module that can run you in excess of $200. Even if you're within Warranty, Bosch will gouge you for labor, as that is NOT covered by warranty. Top that with abysmal customer service and you're in for a world of hurt. Sorry, but it's time for a new dishwasher. :(

I have the same dishwasher and started experiencing the same problem last week. It is now fixed (at least for the moment). Here's what I did first. I checked the drain pan under the machine for water(none), the heater for continuity(okay), the float for binding(none), and the float switch for proper functioning(okay). I tried turning the ckt breaker off for a couple of hours to see if that would reset the control module(no effect). I then dissasembled the front door and removed the control module. I had previously read about the common problem of a cold solder joint on the heater relay pin on the control board. My heater was working and the joint looked good but I resoldered it anyway. I reassembled everything and it worked perfectly! My conclusion is that it was either a cold solder joint that was somehow causing the problem or a connector issue that got resolved during my disassembly/reassembly. Hope this helps.

it possibly could be a bad soldier joint on the heater relay of the circuit board. but if it is then let an authorized bsh tech replace the board since that is a 5 year warrenty part usually. it also could be problem with the NTC-HEAT ASSY- OR FLOW CONTROL. which are all part of the heat assemby.
but the first thing i would check since the time is jumping around on that model would be to make sure that the polarity on the power cord isnt reversed where its hooked up to the d/w

first thing to say is that whether it may be an short circuit between circuits,,or due to an over voltage the fuse may be burnt,,please check the control panel..back of dishwasher,,,
if u checked fuse and circuit,,and think no problem with incoming voltage ,,the control panel's capacitors or resistors may be burnt..
if so please go to a tech,,,,,
thank u,,,for using fixya

Wash Cycle Options
Delay Start (model dependent):
This option allows you to delay the start time of your dishwasher up
to 19 hours.
The Sanitize feature is available only in the Heavy, Auto, Normal and Half Load cycles. Press the
"Sanitize Option" button to activate the Sanitation features during these cycles. The technical sanitation
measures may also improve the drying results. The sanitize LED or The "Water Pipe" symbol will light when sanitation
requirements are met.
Note: The dishwasher automatically defaults to Auto Wash when turned off and back on. If you used the sanitize option
in your last cycle, the dishwasher will default to Auto Wash with the Sanitize option selected when you turn it on.
To achieve proper drying, always use a liquid rinse aid, even if your detergent contains a rinse aid or
Note: The dishwasher indicates low rinse aid by turning on the Refill Rinse Aid indicator LED (for units without
a display) or The "Spray Looking" symbol (for units with a display).
If this light is on, you need to refill the rinse aid dispenser
I got the idea that the "squiggly arrow" has something to do with the sanitize feature also. If you post your model number "on the inside right hand side of your dishwasher door" I'll go get your manual and post the link here. Hope this helps so far! :)
