Bosch dishwasher model SMV40T10GB/29. Scrubbing brush flashing on control panel. What does this mean?

I believe that is a no drain error. You can check to see if there are objects in the sump area like glass and food. If the water from the dishwasher can not drain into the air gap the dishwasher will be unable to drain. The sump is the area where your filter sits. You might have a bad pump or a blockage somewhere.

Dishwasher not draining

Check the strainer, then the pump. Debris can get stuck in the line to the pump.

The light for the drain glog is on and I lifted the strainer cover off and cannot get the light to go off or the machine to continue draining....

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
The light is on as the unit won't drain or is unable to drain due to blockage in the drain hose. This problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Bosch shv56c03uc/114 Water is not draining

Check drain hose first.

If you do not find any blockage, then you will need to access the pump, remove pump hose and look for blockage in there.

If there is no blockage at all, then either the water level switch, a faulty pump, a wiring problem, or a faulty timer board can be cause the machine not draining.
