My Bosch dishwasher has stopped working. When I turn it on, it just hums. I tried canceling the cycle; it advanced to zero but kept humming. I also tried running a test cycle as described at but got the same result.

Hi There

The hum generally comes from the wash pump.
Remove the right hand side panel and identify the wash pump. It's towards the rear. Place an insulated screwdriver on the chassis of the motor, can you feel it buzzing.
Most likely the capacitor has failed or you have a blockage.
Post back your model number when you are ready.
