Question about Bosch Dishwashers
If the button is faulty then you would have to replace the touch pad of the unit the button plugs into the touch pad and usually when you do have this fault it is only possible when this happens to replace the touchpad as a whole and not individual pieces due to this part being sold as one if you have any further questions message me back with the model number of your machine or if you need any priceing information or a comparitive view of where you can get the touchpad cheapest message me back with this as well and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

Hi, I doubt, the actual button is Faulty, as they are soft touch buttons and don't actually "Do" anything other than "Signal" to the Computer brain, that that button has been pressed. But indeed.you may actually have a problem or you may not, DW's are finicky things... What you indicated about the button, it is then more likely if it is a fault, it would be some internal "Brain" or "Sensor" fault, inhibiting the system form working, but anyway .first try the bellow.
This is from an old post of mine...
Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.
OK BUT if this doesn't fix it, then OK you may indeed have a problem. now the only real way to tell is to obtain a service manual, and work through the troubleshooting steps. remembering that many many symptoms have differing causes, but the symptoms appear the same, which is why one must test things to isolate issues..
You have this DIY option, or call a Boch service man, and ask for a "Quote" as to the repair costs, then you can make an informed decision as to what to do..
