Certainly sounds like the float is stuck in the over filled position or possible a bad float switch. Could also be a bad water fill valve - if you can blow air through it when removed then you need to replace it. You can follow this link to troubleshoot your washer, but note that its not exactly for your model - http://www.thermador.com/replacementparts/main/pdfs/SHU-complete-troubleshooting-guide.pdf Good luck!

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher is stuck on drain cycle

cause is water in the bottom tray which operates an anti-flood switch and all machine will do is drain.
disconnect from mains
remove bottom panel and mop out water and it will work. if fault re-occurs, then you have a leak which you will have to identify

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher: won't fill with water

The flood switch is tripped. This is located under the unit. Unplug or flip the breaker to the dishwasher, take off the black kick plate under the door, 2 screws, and you will see the white plastic "pan". The flood switch is located where you can't really see it but it is on the left hand side wall and is made of styrofoam. The best thing to do is to put some rags in the pan, this is not easy because there is little room to put them, and soak-up the water that has filled the pan. Eventually you will get enough water out that the float will deactivate the switch. What you hear "running" when you turn it on is actually the drain pump, it get activated when the flood switch is tripped.

Bosch dishwaser. starts and stops, it will say clean. leaves water in the bottom. we purchased a new pump and still not working? :( :(


All dishwashers leave a little water in the bottom. However, I suspect there's an appreciable amount in the machine. I'd suggest you lift out the filter and check the drain port.

Motor keeps running. Water heats fine. Help


One of the reasons for motor not draining during normal cycle is the check valve is stuck. It is meant to return to normal during drain cycle but close during wash. I think the cancel is resetting it and letting water out.
See this discussion.

Bosch dishwasher shx55m with bottom tub full of water


The dishwasher really shouldn't pass any particles near large enough to clog the drain hose. It sounds more like a mechanical issue. Check the circuit breaker to make sure it's not tripped. See if you can hit a cancel button or something to make it drain. Try to run another cycle. If the computer is stuck or acting funny, trying cutting the power for a while, holding down a stop/reset/cancel button, or running a cycle that you don't usually run. I had this kitchenaid that would randomly refuse the normal wash cycle, but would run fine when you ran rinse only or something, then regular wash and everything would be fine again too. If the line somehow is clogged, there's a good chance it's right where the hose connects to the disposal or drain pipe.

Water won't go out of the dishwasher


Begin at your sink drain that the dishwasher drain hose connects to. Disconnect the hose and check both directions for anything plugging the connection.
Make sure the drain hose has not become "kinked"
(After you have emptied the water from the dishwasher) remove the lower spray arm and the filter in the sump area. Look for obstructions and remove all debris. Rinse the filter thoroughly and reassemble.
If you dishwasher has a timer on the front of the dishwasher that you can manually turn, start a quick cycle with no DW soap and empty.
Allow the water to run in for several seconds and then manually (slowly, gently) turn the timer knob until the DW should begin draining the DW. Listen closely for the sound of the pump motor running.Is water properly draining out of the dishwasher into the drain?
After you have done these things, please post back here and we can take the next steps. OK?

Our Bosch diswasher smells (foul odor) after a wash cycle.


Make sure the drainage hose is not pushed all the way through the gooseneck in the pipe. Doing so will bypass the standing water which prevents sewer gasses from escaping into the dishwasher.

MY DISHWASHER IS NOT DRAINING. I REMOVED THE DRAIN IT DOESNT SEEM TO BE CLOGGED .


When you say that you removed the drain, are you talking about the filter screen and you removed all sediment from previous wash cycles? If so, does your dishwasher drain into and thru a garbage disposal in under your sink? Sometimes that gets clogged and when the DW tries to drain thru that, it just builds up and doesn't empty the DW properly. A quick yet not so painfree check can be to detach the dishwasher drain hose from wherever it is clamped on ( under the sink ) and run the dishwasher thru a cycle //but allow it to drain into a good sized bucket.. If that works OK and you have a good flow .. then chances are your drain system is restricting it from draining.. Conversely, if the DW drains very slowly then there is a good chance your pump, the line into or out of the pump may be clogged or the pump itself is malfunctioning.. Those are the main components to look at..Hoe that helps you !
