Question about Dishwashers
As i'm not sure where I am in my dishwasher cycle and needed to power down the dishwasher a few days ago because of a malfunction, can you tell me how do I reset it so I can start the cycle from its beginning again...thanks Marc.

Check the drain pump. First, manually initiate drain by pressing the second and fourth buttons on the keypad at the same time. If it pumps out, disregard the rest. If it doesn't at least hum, check for power at the motor.
Remove lower rack, lower spray arm, and screens in bottom, remove all water inside. Check for debris under pump cover in bottom of sump. The drain pump suction is through the hole on the left.
Behind the toe panel on the left is the drain motor, If no debris was found inside, the drain pump may have failed. Remove outer door panel (you may need to remove the two screws on the sides of the control panel.) Remove the metal panel across the top of the motor area , disconnect hose in front of pump, disconnect wires to pump, press tab at top of pump and rotate clockwise to remove pump. The impeller could be loose on the motor shaft, or the motor windings failed.

First check the machine is getting electricity (and the problem isn't a blown fuse!)
A very likely cause is that the solenoid on the inlet valve has gone. Rarer possibilities to consider are water turned off at the mains, a blocked inlet strainer (where the inlet hose mates with the valve), or a problem with the programme controller.
The inlet valve is near the top of the machine, and is the thing the hose from your outside water supply screws into. The solenoid is the electrical bit that clips onto the top of the valve body.
I suggest you go out to your local appliance spares shop and buy a replacement solenoid for not much, fit it and see what happens. It is possible to do a series of tests to confirm first that really is the problem - but with the solenoids being cheap, I'm inclined to suggest not messing around with test gear, water and mains electricity.
When replacing the solenoid, make really sure the machine is unplugged from the electricity supply.
Usually best to take the top panel off to gain access (try taking the trim across the back of the top panel off, then sliding the panel off backwards).
Disconnect the cables from the old solenoid. Prise it off the valve body. Snap the new one on in its place and refit the cables (it doesn't really matter which way round they go, but one way will probable look neater than the other).

Welcome to Fixya, you came to the right place.
I`m not sure what model you have, but typically you should be able to select another cycle by choosing a button and pressing it twice quickly.
For instance if you want`"normal" press the normal button twice in 2-4 seconds and it should go to normal cycle.
Let me know how you make out. Good luck and thanks for visiting "fixya".
Please take moment and rate this solution favorable if indeed it helped you, if not let me know and we`ll move forward from here.

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description " makes squealing sound almost like beeping at the beginning of its cycle "...it is likely to be either the pump impeller or the inlet valve.
With the Bosch built line of dishwasher`s this is a known problem...the carbon ring ( spring ) of the impeller pump seal kit. ( make sure it is indeed a SHU9915UC before ordering parts )
**Most common in units not used regularly, i.e. in a holiday cottage or vacation property, but time to time on daily used as well unfortunately...but also due to the heat from normal wear & tear**
You first must determine which is the source of course. Does the noise begin after filling with water and the pump starts, or does it begin upon the filling of water ?
If it's the valve, make sure the water supply line is completely "open" and if so replace the valve with part #425458
If it is the motor wash impeller squeeling It can be remedied by one of two methods, replacing the entire motor & pump assy part # 442548...
This retails between $99.00us. to as much as $170.00us. depending where you look. I usually go through "searspartsdirect.com" for about $100us. ( you can also investigate "repairclinic.com" or "appliancepartspros.com" to name a few.
Or if you are mechanically inclined, replacing the pump impeller kit. part # 167085
The kit is typically around $50 -$75us, hence it can be cheaper when factoring labour for the complete motor/pump assy.
This is a pretty involved repair to explain, in fact I think it is harder to explain than actually do...but I`ve done many.
If you`d like to provide me with an email address I can attach a file in "pdf" showing you step by step how you can do this without much cost at all really...likely your time will be the greatest expense.
Let me know how you`d like to proceed and I`ll help in whatever manner I can.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and Good luck.

Testimonial: "we are still carefully listening to the sounds and its timing, we plan to change the impeller soon time permitting and will inform about the results"
