Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher
We've never had a problem w/ our dishwasher until tonight. I started it and left the room for a while and came back because I smelled something like burning plastic... or overheated motor. The display on the dishwasher still said 92 minutes even though it normally starts at 100 minutes and it had been well over an hour. It appears that the washer is stuck in the very first stage where it drains any left over water in the bottom. I think its just continuing to try and drain even though there is very little water there. I added a gallon of water to the bottom and started it over again to see if there was a clog, but it drained just fine and never seemed to move to that next stage. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Had the same problem. The float switch was stuck in the filled position. Removed left side panel to reveal fill and flood safety mechanism. Inspection revealed sludge ( soap scum?) caused float to stick in flood/full position. The drain pump just kept trying to empty sump and no water came. Dis-assembled float assembly, cleaned out sludge, re-assembled unit and let her rip.

Intrrnal leak into base of appliance will make drain pump run constantly.
If appliance fills then dumps water with drain punp then keeps filling/draining sequence then the flow meter could de faulty.
Call in engineer.
