5+ yrs old Bosch dishwasher won't advance cycles.

My Bosch dishwasher will not advance through the cycles. It shows H2 in the display, fills and pumps but doesn't go any further, just washes untill I shut it off and turn it right back on. Then it shows the time count down. I checked the heater current and it's at 10.5 to 11 amps. I was thinking maybe bad control module. I checked the control board for any burns or loose connections al look OK. Can anyone give some ideas? Thanks.

One thing to try is to turn off the circuit for a while and see if that helps reboot the electronics.

Did that. Didn't help. Unit is a model SHU5302 UC/U12 if that helps anyone.

We have a miele - mostly mechanical control. While this may be completely inapplicable to your unit, we had a similar problem. It simply wouldn't rotate the timer knob on its own.
Opening up the unit, expecting something really subtle that would be a bear to diagnose, I was surprised to find that one of the wiring connectors to the timer housing had vibrated off and was hanging loose. And that was the motor drive power...
Reattached with a tiewrap so it couldn't recur. Works fine.

I've got a 13+ year old Bosch sitting in my back yard waiting for a new home, but it has the same problem.. I would come home and find it had been running all day long or perhaps ~20 hours.. A little fiddling with the controls would unstick it. In my case, we had a home warranty company come out and replace all of the thermostats since there were no other parts they could find faulty. After that, it would still stick once in a while and since it was getting fairly old anyway, we replaced it with a new Miele after the home warranty company refused to change out the timer (mechanical) and wondered why I didn't want to renew their annual contract.. Go figure..
On a different note, we're VERY happy with out Miele unit which is a nice step up from the Bosch (which was also good, but a bit old). Having 3 racks is a great feature that I'd never give up in a second!
