Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Based on your information you've given, I'm not quite sure what you're stating the problem is with your dishwasher. Can you please explain what the dishwasher is doing or not doing?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Ran dishwasher, unloaded, was going to reload but noticed filthy water to top of basin. Scooped it all out, took out filter and tray, nothing stuck. Can’t get screws off to check next bit, don’t seem to be flat head, Phillips or Alan wrenches

Bosch dishwashers are not easy to work on for drain issues unfortunately.

First, I'm going to assume you didn't change your garbage disposal recently--so if you did please speak up. You'll need to open the door and remove the center cylinder filter as well as the silver stainless mesh filter plate. This will allow you get gain access to the plastic sump (or pump cavity) below the filters. There is a little plastic dome held down by 1 screws on down inside the left side of the sump. Remove the screw (it's a size 15 torx bit screwdriver) and check for any blockages to the drain pump impeller that is now exposed. Put the cap back on and run another cycle to see if it works. If not, you'll need to uninstall the unit, disconnect the drain hose and blow through it to see if it's clear. If it's clear---replace the drain pump. Below is a link to a video that will show you how to take the sump apart to check the drain impeller.

We’d like our money refunded ($24), the two minute call was a compete waste of time, told we need a special tool, so zero help. Even worse, called Bosch this morning and the issue was a simple reset needed, pushed two buttons on the front and issue was solved - we weren’t even asked too try that, would have fixed the issue last gift.Please send confirmation of the $24 refund
