I have a Bosch slimline dishwasher that is not working properly.

Resolved Question:

I have a Bosch slimline dishwasher that is not working properly. When I select the programme and turn the machine on, the water just goes into the machine and straight out again into the drain, but the programme doesn't start. Can you help?

OK

and is it cold to touch when you open the appliance ?

The problem is with the heating element that is bad and needs replacement

Why doesn't the programme start?

The water fills...control detects that its unable to heat so just drains the water...
