Broken Dishwasher : Bosch SGS53A12GB/01

Hello there,
Just wondering if you can help we have a Bosch dishwasher that is not working. When we put it on it makes a humming noise as if it is on, yet is not filling with water and and the soap dispenser is not opening. It will just sit there and hum antil we turn it off.  
Do you have any idea what we can do to get it working?
Many Thanks,

    Hi, if its still under warranty you should call bosch and get them to arrange a service engineer to come out and check it for a fault.

    How do i run a test / diagnostic mode for the bosch sge63e05uc (evolution series) dishwasher?

    Are the instructions on how to run the diagnostic test listed in the manual? FYI, I couldn't run the test on my Bosch DW because it was just too broken. Over the years the dishwasher essentially fried its own circuit board with excessive heat, which I learned is a problem common to Bosch DW's. Bosch told me the lifespan of my model was 10 years; mine was 11 years old (but was repaired once or twice). I replaced it with a Miele; no problems yet after 4 1/2 months.
