Question about Bosch Dishwashers
First, I'm not a BOSCH tech.
I just installed an ELECTROLUX dishwasher last month and had a similar problem. We also have an older Kenmore dish washer in another part of the house. The Kenmore is at least 15 years old and the touch pads are very soft and easy to select. The new one did not select either. I have to firmly depress the pad (which seems to be a stiffer plastic) and make sure I'm pressing down on the right spot to get things to work.
* I recently came across the same problem. Pressing buttons won't change the displayed setting and it seemed to be 'stuck' in one mode but I coudn't tell if it was in between a cycle or just stuck. I've found that holding the 'start' button down (firmly) for 10 seconds will cancel all functions and it went back to normal. Since then it gets stuck several times over the week. I don't know if one of the kids is opening it up as I only turn it on at night just before going to sleep. So, someone may be sneaking around for a mid nite kitchen raid.
* If you still have problems then check your warranty as many of these machines have parts warranty for 3-5 years. The 'switch' section if bad must be completely replaced as it is all one piece. These membrane switches will get damaged from a sharp fingernail or using a knife or fork to force the button down. (happened with the Kenmore, Kids kept stabbing it to get it to turn on.)

YOU MAY NEED A CONTROL BOARD OR A HEATER. THERE IS A CONNECTOR WITH A RED AND GRAY WIRE, THE RED WIRE IS THICKER THAN THE OTHER RED WIRES. IF YOU HAVE 120 VOLTS ON THERED WIRE THE CONTROL IS GOOD. YOU NEED A CLAMP ON AMP METER TO TEST TO SEE IF THERE IS AN AMP DRAW ON THE RED WIRE WHICH WOULD TELL YOU THE HEATER IS WORKING

cause is water in the bottom tray which operates an anti-flood switch and all machine will do is drain.
disconnect from mains
remove bottom panel and mop out water and it will work. if fault re-occurs, then you have a leak which you will have to identify

look carefully at operating buttons they will have 2 marked with a line with dots at either end, open door press and hold these 2 buttons usually 2 and 4 as from left too right, turn on keeping fingers on these buttons after a few seconds end light will come on turn off at main switch then back on again should work after that.
