Bosch dishwasher problem

Oh botheration. Today the dishwasher has gone on the blink. Thank heavens it wasn't a few days back. Bosch Classixx SGS 43 CO 2 GB/35. Some years old. It is used daily. After a brief look at it I found the stainless/plastic filter in the base had come apart at the seam. Water is entering & heating properly. Water is being pumped out at end of cycle. The in between part is the problem. No water from the rotating arms. A little froth perhaps but not any flow of water. The circulation pump (if that's what it is called) is making noise, but not the right noise. I'm guessing that (1) the pump is knacked or (2) there is a blockage in the pump or associated pipework. This seems a possibility given the broken filter.
Any thoughts please?
I'll pull it out and look more closely tomorrow. Best (only) price I've found for the pump is ?167. Obviously not worth the corn.
If a new machine is on the menu, any rec's please.
Many thanks, Nick.

Happened to the filter on ours as well...
IIRC, with the filter out, there is another housing with a torx screw that gives access to the impeller, can at least see if it's free to rotate...

Yes, rings a bell with me too. I am fairly sure that with these you get to the pump from inside the washing compartment (take middle shelf out) rather than the hassle in the old days of putting it on one side to attack the pump from the bottom.
I've now had a couple of Bosch washing machines and dishwashers and they have all been pretty trouble free.

Agreed. Although on some models there's just a specified point where you prise the cover off. There should be details in the user manual.
Our 15 year old Bosch developed this and I decided it was time for a new one. I bought another Bosch; we had used it heavily, and probably given it about 20 years' use!
