Re: bosch dishwasher digital readout
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 !

Hi Scott, yes is the short answer. most electronics today have a set current for operating motors usually for under load conditions worst case. If there was a blockage or filter restricting the flow the motor will pull more current which will be detected by the motor circuit.
If this were not the case the power to any motor would be unlimited and would simply burn the motor out. Check the sump or pump and the drain filter. Tim
If the water
doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these: Drain line/air gap A clog in the
drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher
won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to
the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can
clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose
before starting the dishwasher again. Pump Your
dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the
motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump
from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the
spray arm, and the spray arm support. Look for an
impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is
the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the
wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the
wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These
components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you
need to replace them. Drain valve and/or solenoid Many
dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows
to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes
the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from
draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the
lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With
these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized,
the drain valve diverts the water. Other
dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher.
These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected
directly to the pump housing. Belt One brand of
dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. If this belt is broken or has fallen
off, replace it. Motor If the motor
isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. First check to be sure you have
power to the dishwasher. If not, see the section "It doesn't work at
all." If the motor hums but doesn't turn, it may need to be replaced. Some
dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly.
If you haven't run the dishwasher for more than a week, you may need to
manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to
replace it. Dishwasher motors can't be serviced. Timer Part of what
the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work
properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This
problem is uncommon. This
will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively

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?
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.
HI, if you are getting water with the power to the d/w off, you will need to change the inlet valve. the valve is locate uner the d/w in the front left corner. You should have a shot off valve under the sink or in the basement (if applies). Sound like the valve has gone bad and is stuck open. I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further with part # or anything else, please leet me know.
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)
when you hear the motor running during the wash cycle, check to see if the washer is actually draining instead of washing. this would indicate a stuck open drain valve. (the same motor/pump that washes the dishes, also drains the unit)
Intrrnal leak into base of appliance will make drain pump run constantly.
If appliance fills then dumps water with drain punp then keeps filling/draining sequence then the flow meter could de faulty.
