We've had a Bosch dishwasher since 2007. I May this year it began to malfunction. For example, if it was set to run on "Quick Wash", it would run for several hours and continue even when it reached 1 minute. We called the registered Bosch service rep and when he arrived, he told me that the drain pump was the cause of the problem. I thought it "interesting" since I figured it was a control circuit. At any rate, he said he'd have to order the pump. I gave him a check for $205 for the pump and his service call.
After 3 months (literally) and numerous "excuses", he came to the house on Tues., Aug. 14 to do the "repair". He spent approxomately 30 minutes installing the pump and checking for proper operation. He then told my wife it was working and hit her up for about another $200 for the service call. I was out of town at the time.
In short, the dishwasher still continued doing what it had been doing. On Tues., Aug. 21, we had another service tech do some work on our washing machine and we asked him to look at our dishwasher. He immediately said it was on the control circuit board and he thought he couold "jury-rig" it until he could get another board in about a week.
I called the original supposed repair tech today (Aug. 22) and informed him I wanted all of our money back and that the dishwasher still was not working properly. He absolutly refused. He then caled me back later and offered to come back and look at it again and said that the drain pump can cause the problem we had. I flatly told him no and that he wasn't going to screw us anymore.

My question is can this pump cause the problem we have/had and if so do you have any ideas as to how often the pump is the primary culprit?
