I have the same model -- and USED to have the same problem! We tried lots of things (bleach in the water, etc.). . . . and finally discovered it was a simple, standard concern. The drain tube from the dishwasher to the sink pipe was clogged with grease (looked like lard).
The way i knew it was clogged is that I disconnected the tube from the sink pipe, and tried to blow through the tube. It wouldn't let any air get through. 
So once the dishwasher was empty of water (i removed the tube, drained into a big pan, and bailed a lot), we disconnected both ends of the tube. 
With the tube in a trash bucket, I blew from one end (cleaned it off a bit first), and the "lard" came out. Drains beautifully now -- and did not require a plumber.
If you do this, be SURE you place the tube back ON the fittings EXACTLY in the same position and shape as before. This makes there are no new kinks or bends introduced into your drain tube.
Hope this helps.

Dishwashers do not usually complete the cycle if the water temperature is not adequate for the wash program selected. This could be due to inlet hot water not at correct temperature if dishwasher uses hot water or the heater or thermostat within dishwasher being faulty and not able to heat the inlet cold water to the right temperature. Try to run the dishwasher with the rinse or quick wash (low temperature) setting and see if it completes. Might help if you post the Model number in the comments field.

.After running my dishwasher on eco/fast cycle,


If the dishwasher is completing the wash cycle without any problem then the suds can occur either because you not using correct detergent. This model does not tolerate the tablets. You have to use the powder.
Water remaining in the bottom of drawer is linked to drain hose either blocked or not looped high enough under the kitchen sink.
I would suggest check this document for correct installation.

Bosch dishwasher fills with water after cycle is completed


Sounds like you need a new water inlet valve. It's not shutting off completely, so water slowly enters the machine even while it isn't running.

Running time of dishwasher


he cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. 

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Cycle not completing See "The cycle doesn't complete" section. 

The cycle doesn't complete If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.


  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.


Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
