I have a EDWH24 that runs through its cycles and at the end

I have a EDWH24 that runs through its cycles and at the end the pump continues to run even with stop pressed and power switched off. It will continue to run until unplugged. I can see a small amount of water in the drain(1/2 in or so). When running through diagnostics at step 1, at the end, only L2 is lit. However I can hear it operate per test and water shuts off. The other steps light OK. The inlet valve has been replaced and drain hose and connections checked and OK. The machine is 4 years old. Thanks for any helpJA: Have you tried power cycling the appliance -- unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?Customer: YesJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: YesJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I have had the machine out several times and have checked the drain hose, water connection, all OK. Even left it face down to make sure all the water had drained out.

I have been struggling to get my 2010 Bosch dishwasher

Hi,I have been struggling to get my 2010 Bosch dishwasher SHE4AP060C/05 repaired for more than a month. It starts and then stops without any water coming in. A repairman has replaced the bottom right side control panel and the float switch. The front door controls were replaced, but then returned because it did not solve the issue. The valve checks as good. It has power, but no neutral, according to repairman. After he replaced the board and then switch it worked intermittently and then stopped. For a while, I could get it to work by pulling the float a few times. But, now, nothing works. It sounds like it is starting, but then simply starts. The repairman said he recently ran into a similar issue with the same dishwasher. Not sure what to do at this point, besides buying a new dishwasher.

I have a Maytag 300 Quiet series (11 years old). It was making a circulation pump noise. I look at U Tube and it suggested removing the layers inside bottom of the dishwasher to see if there was anything in the bottom layer were the water was supplied to the pump. I remove a part of the dishwasher basket, but it still made the noise. Another suggestion said to pour a picture of water in before the cycle starts. I did that and the noise stopped. I got the impression that if I put a weight on the float, it would leave more water, but it did not (maybe the weight was not heave enough). Am I on the right track, and what is a possible solution? Is there a factory fix since it has always been noisy.

We have a Bosch dishwasher and recently replaced the float

We have a Bosch dishwasher and recently replaced the float switch because it had flooded and wouldn't drain after canceling it. It ran fine for a few days but today it flooded again today. This time we were able to cancel the cycle and it drained but we're not sure what caused it to flood in the first place. I'm not sure what else to replace since it appears the float switch wasn't the problem or the only problem.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: We think its about 7 years...the model number is *****JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: I would like to...I did fine with replacing the float switchJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I think that's it...we cleaned everything well after the last episode so I don't think there's any blockage and it drained after we canceled it this time.
