It sound that the problem is cause the water level switch.The switch level is a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube first from any obstruction, In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube.
In case it doesn't react, you should replace it.
Good luck !

Hello. First, when looking up info on your model, I came across this recall on the SHE44C unit. Check your model number and serial number to verify if your unit falls into the recall range. (fire hazard)
Next, study the schematic diagram for your unit--the drain pump is connected directly to the main board--the fact that it's running even with the door open suggests that the main board might have a stuck relay and will have to be replaced if that is the case. The part number is 444813. The drain motor (see close-up, pic 4, is designated M3) has one side wired to the board, the other side goes through the on/off switch to incoming power, (see pic 3, lower right corner). I hope this helps you!
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.
the unit will try to complete the last command it was engage in before it went in the overfill safety mode. you must perform a cancel drain cycle to reset unit to default setting. Remember the drain cycle is 2 min and must be completed to reset main control. however if it went into a overfill status you have a leak and it generally comes from the pressure chamber on the lefthand side of unit where the water enters tub
The drain motor (pump out motor) in line with the outlet pipe could be faulty. This motor must spin (to pump out water) in the drain mode. If AC (mains)voltage is across motor in pumpout mode and the motor does not spin indicates that the motor is open circuit and needs replacing. Has one of the 2 motor push on electrical connections dislodged?
Is the outlet pipe obstructed?
water is in the base and the float switch is activated. you must remove the water to deactivate.then hit the drain and cancell. let me tell you a quick joke .Im a old bosch tech and i had a call with the same problem. as soon as i got there i notice mouse droppings.the customer had a tech come by and told her she needed a circulation pump amodule the whole thing.wrong!!! what had happen was a mouse had made a mouse bed with the white packing foam and pulled it under the float in the unit. so the unit thought it had water in base and it went into drain mode . I removed foam and problem solved.
underneath the machine there is a donute shaped styrofoam item called a flood safty switch .makke sure there is no debri underneath..mice will drag animal food or chew on this and will lodge it leaving debri under it causing it to trigger a false flood condition causing the machine to go in to a continual drain-is there a digital readout on your machine reading 88 continuasly
Your dishwasher is stuck in flood mode. Bosch dishwashers are built with flood switches located in the bottom base pan of the dishwasher. The flood switch is connected to a rod that activates a small interlock switch. When water enters the base pan on a Bosch dishwasher, a Styrofoam puck lifts the rod, activating the flood switch.
When the flood switch is activated, the dishwasher will go into a no-fill, only-drain mode. The drain motor may also run with the door open to the unit. This is definitely a sign there is water in the base pan. This can be caused by the drain being clogged. There are two ways to fix:
1. You can uninstall the dishwasher and tip it forward to about a 45 degree angle to drain the water out of the base pan. (This is probably why Ian Bint's solution fixed the problem.) Be sure to put a towel under the dishwasher first so that the water is soaked up in the towel instead of going all over the floor. Once you've drained all the water out of the base pan, reinstall the dishwasher and begin a cycle. If it fills and runs, you are good to go.
2. You can also unplug the unit, then remove the kick panel at the bottom in the front. (It's attached with two screws.) Then get some old washcloths or small towels and reach into the base pan below the dishwasher to soak up the water. The pan is directly behind the plastic base panel rim. Once the pan is empty and dry, your dishwasher will no longer be in "flood mode" and will run properly.
If the base pan keeps refilling with water and the no-fill problem returns, there is definitely another issue, such as a clogged drain. At this point, you need to decide whether to invest in an expert evaluation by a certified Bosch repairman and make the necessary repairs, or buy a new dishwasher.
ok i will tellyou the secret. your unit is in drain mode .there is water in the base of your dishwasher and it has to dryed out to come out off drain mode. when you dryit then hit cancel and the unit will work. to get the water out you have to take off panel side to see the base. trade secret :0)
Is there no water coming in( hear no water at all) or no water NOT staying in ( drain motor running) ... the float switch is a safety to keep the dishwasher from flooding ...turns on the drain motor as soon as the door is closed..
I could check the control and see if you have power to the water valve.. maybe a control problem if no power..
