Question about Bosch 24 in. SHE43C05UC Stainless Steel Free-Standing Dishwasher
Hello Lisa and welcome to Fixya,
The problem you`re describing is a very common one with Bosch built dishwashers, unfortunately. My first suggestion would be to phone an authorized B/S/H/ service provider (Bosch) It can be a fairly involved repair, I`ll explain why as best as possible...
The issue with your Bosch dishwasher likely lye`s within`the electronic timer/control,( 99% of the time ) specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). This is why it runs forever unless pressing the two buttons for "cancel".
To repair your unit It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. This will be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sits and runs & runs ( because it can`t heat to advance or until canceled ) trying to heat the water.
**Further to this, if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on thier behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)**
**Please disconnect the power before attempting any service to the dishwasher. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau, to service your machine.**
Hope this answer`s your question's, let me know if I can assist you further. Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiries. Please take a moment and rate this solution to it's helpfulness to you and leave a testimony if you're satisfied.

If the water fills the tub correctly and you hear the washer motor go on, do you see the timer led count down? If the number doesn't count down then there is a problem with the controls board which changes the washing/rinse cycles. A replacement board is about 100 buck.
