Default Bosch Classixx dishwasher not working

Our dishwasher has stopped working after a couple of days sounding a bit strange. The light goes on but the water isnt going in. DH has investigated and cant see anything obvious. I wondered if anyone had had a similar problem and has any info on what could be wrong with it & how we fix it?
Its quite a few years old so wont still be under warranty.

If it was making strange sounds then it may have a pump problem or a blocked drain.

I am not sure of the prices of Bosch parts but it may be worth getting someone to take the back off and check the basics before you write it off.

Bosch seem to have a good reputation unlike most modern dishwashers.

This site has a lot of good information.

Throw a washing up bowls worth of water into it first,all of the programs on ours start with a water discharge. That will show you if the pump is working.

Make sure that the inlet pipe and the outlet pipe are not kinked / trapped.

Make sure that the tap has not been accidentally closed , whilst you were moving the bleach and cleaning stuff about.

It's the simple things that get you!

thank you for your helpful suggestions.have checked the very helpful recommended website and also checked everything as davethetaller suggests and the water is draining out but not coming in. Dh seems to now think it might be the circuit board. I think we will have to wash up by hand for a few weeks whilst we decide what to do

Could be the water valves for the water inlets?

In some machines there is a safety device where if there is a leak into the base of the machine, a float thing rises and this cuts off the incoming water. Check whether you have any water in the base, not the bit where the dishes are washed but the base of the outer casing.

This just happened to my son's DW, once his dad emptied out the water it started up again. If it is that, and it recurs , then you must have a leak somewhere.

milliejo, we have had this problem with our classix & it's only 2 years old. With ours it seems to be a faulty valve? Try turning your dishwasher on & lifting the front about an inch or more to see if the noise changes to water coming in. If this happens you should get a full wash cycle, as we do. As a temporary measure we prop the machine up for a couple of washes & then try it flat to see if it works normally - thankfully this seems to work. I know it's not a great solution but it might work.
Nothing sweet about me

there is an engineers quick re set.
switch the appliance off, press the other buttons in keep them pressed in then switch the appliance on, this can reset it.

Thumbs up Bosch Dishwasher Rest

Just had 2 year old grandson staying and he pressed the buttons and dishwasher stalled in cycle and would not restart or do anything!!

Noticed a sticker on top inside edge of door which indicated to hold two of the setting option buttons to reset the machine. I held Intensive and Eco down, which matched the symbols on the sticker and then I pressed the power button. This reset the machine and the elctronic light which indicates, stage of cycle i.e. rinse, wash, dry, went back to '0' sign.

All back to normal and working again !! Brilliant

jrh505 why oh why are you replying to a 3 year old dead thread???
It just fills the board up with rubbish for the rest of the forum, if you have something to say about something/problem just start a new thread about it please the amount of newbies that come on dig up a dead thread make some comment as if the orginal people are listening which is highly unlikely just to get a first post in. its not necessary.

thanks basil

If it's a dead thread, shouldn't it be closed then? I don't get your point, apart from being pedantic. Why can't people just get on with life? It's hardly a crime of the Century. BTW, I did find this thread useful (the earlier part - that is)
