Welcome to FixYa.
I`ll start by letting you know there are many things which can manifest in the manner you`re describing...or even how one interprets what you`re describing.
Having said that are you referring to water in the tub or in fact the "pan" also known as overfill basin ?
**before performing any repairs please turn off the power to the dishwasher...safety first**
In either case I would instruct you to start by checking the drain hose where it is connecting to your home plumbing...i.e. under sink or into food disposer/garberator. for kinks or obstructions.
Also remove the filter assembly and check for food or soap deposits clogging the sump assembly.
**ultimately it may in fact be a faulty drain pump not pumping the adequate volume of water for the time allowed...but I certainly would check the drain first**
That is by far and away the most common cause behind the problem you are describing...based on my understanding as I mentioned.
Let me know if indeed this was helpful or not and we can move forward from here.
Either way thank you for choosing FixYa today. I`ll watch for your reply.

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description I'd say the issue actually with the control...unfortunately. The "1" being displayed is actually an error code associated with a heating fault.
Bosch has had a history of this exact problem I'm about to lay out for you and this is the first thing I'd be looking for if called out to service the unit with the symptoms you've described. **B/S/H/ also issued a recall on certain models between 1999 - 2006 depending on the model & serial number, you can check with yours but you'll need the serial number too. The issue was directly related to the heating circuit (specifically the heat relay on the control) Here`s the link if you want to see for yourself **
As I've alluded to the issue is likely within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ).
My first suggestion would be contacting Bosch re: the recall or calling in an authorized bosch service tech. if that is an option for you and your budget however, If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself...it really isn't very complicated.
It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board.
The culprit will 99% of the times be one of the pins from the heater relay,
**Flip this over and inspect the solder joints, it will be obvious when you see it.**
This ones new, but it's where to look...
...hence the unit sit`s and takes longer & longer to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed...or takes a long time as I mentioned and eventually display's "1" on units with a display and usually very poor cleaning as a result.
You can also run the unit through a regular or econo cycle ...any cycle with the exception of rinse & hold, and with the door panel removed place an ammeter on the gray/black wire it should draw 11 amps during the wash cycle...after it fills and the flow switch indicates it has adequate water to engage the heater.
**My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...or it will not last, although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)**
**Please disconnect the power or turn off the breaker before attempting any service to the dishwasher.**
If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau/Siemens, to service your machine.
Hope this answer`s your question, let me know if I can assist you further.

Possible that the drain pump needs a closer look , clean and check if the pump is working. If there is voltage to the pump during the drian then the pump is faulty.
The second issue if the inlet chocking , check the inlet filter , check the flow to inlet. remove the valve if there is voltage and no flow if not the program controller needs a check.
I shall give you a link which might assist you with some helpful tips.
