Question about Bosch Dishwashers
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on the description of the unit not filling with water and the machine doesn`t stop if the door is opened explains almost everything, thanks for such detail.
First the reason it`s not filling, hence not dipensing the detergent is the unit has detected an overfill, this too is the reason the unit continues to run when the door is opened.
**Turn off the power for the dishwasher at your home service panel...safety first**
If you can remove the toe panel at the bottom and inspect for water in the basin, i.e.
The above is the location of where to look for water
...this will confirm there actually was an overflow...perhaps just from suds or drain back-up...that will be determined later.
If there is water present in the basin, soak it up with a sponge, towels or wet-dry shop vac.
Once the water is removed ( if present) it should resolve the not shutting off and not filling issue ( there-by resolve the detergent dispensing as well )...if no water present look to the left in the basin for the overflow "rod" i.e. below...
With the aid of a wooden spoon, long screw-driver, or if your arm is long enough reach and gently lift up on the red stick ( float rod ) to listen for a "click". This will confirm the switch is good and release it if it happens to be "stuck" in the overfill position.
As for the "1" being displayed. That is actually the control indicating the unit experienced a heating fault, but I wouldn`t worry about that at this point. It is likely just a result of the unit not having enough water.
Let me know how you make out or if anything is not clear or you need further assistance.
Thanks for choosing FixYa. Good luck.
