Question about Bosch 24 in. SGS43C12 Classixx Free-Standing Dishwasher
The float switch might be tripping. Pull the dishwasher out (if it's under-counter) and tilt it forward gradually to about 20 degrees. If you see a pool of water on the floor, it means that water is getting into the bottom of the dishwasher underneath the washing compartment.
This can simply be caused by a loose retaining nut on the salt compartment. Unscrew the cap from the salt compartment and you will see a large plastic nut underneath. If it's loose, tighten it - you'll need a large pair of waterpump pliers or stilson for this.
Assuming this was the problem, make sure you empty all the water from the bottom before you put it back by tilting it forwards until water stops coming out.
To stop the problem returning, DON'T over-tighten the cap on the salt compartment. Make sure it's on firmly, but if you overtighten it, it will grip the nut and loosen it the next time you remove the salt cap. If the nut is loose, water can get into the bottom of the washer.
