Are you coming back to me
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Ok does it fill completely and do you ever hear the main motor come on and run? If not you likely have a seized or stalled main pump motor. When that happens the unit does its self checks in the first 2-3 minutes of the cycle if it does not see the motor run due to it being stalled that is exactly what will occur. You would need to check the main motor to see if it is stalled, jammed or burned out. This is a job to do as there is no easy way to get at the motors on the bosch units.
