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.
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.

It\'s not just anyone who gets a Starship Cruiser class named after them.
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!
