When I turn my Bosch dishwasher on the auto wash light

Customer Question

When I turn my Bosch dishwasher on the auto wash light flashes till I press the start button and then the active light keeps flashing for about 30 second and then the done light comes one. Nothing happened in the dishwasher at all.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect there may be an issue with the electronic control. Attached is the tech sheet that will explain how to enter the diagnostic cycle. Can you retrieve any error codes that may be stored and post them, please?

My unit does not have the digital display. So where would the ABC LED's be.
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

The lights above the three buttons will flash. The A B C is just what they label the buttons for instruction.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did what the paper said, press two buttons and powered the unit on. LED A was blinking and LED B was solid. Press the Button and LED A kept blinking. After resetting it again to do the same as above and then two other lights was flashing, the Active and Clean LED was blinking together.

Which lights on the tech sheet, A, B or C, were flashing?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
LED A Wash Flashing. I will add a video file to show what happened.

That would indicate an issue with the fill portion of the cycle, or an overflow issue. Is the pump running at all?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Something tries but no what pumps in. How can I send a 35 meg video to show the exact sequence.
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

You will have to upload it to Youtube and send me the link.

Can you hear the water valve humming or buzzing? It sounds like the water valve may be faulty.
