Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher
Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.
This is a condition called "flood safe mode" which means that water has gotten into the base pan underneath of the dishwasher causing a float switch to activate and tell the board that there is water in the unit.
You will have to pull the entire dishwasher out and remove the left side panel. Turn the power off at the circuit breaker to the machine and use towels or rags to soak up the water in the base pan. You will see a little round Styrofoam float that looks like a hockey puck. Once the water is out then the float will sit down on the ground again and the error will be gone. Because you say it would work sometimes that's probably because some of the water would evaporate and it would start working, but because the issue kept coming back I would assume something is leaking. It isn't fun to find leaks on these units you just have to take the right and left side panels off and watch for leaks. But unfortunately that's the only thing you can do.
Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.
