Hi, welcome to Just answer
Please tell me its complete model number
and how old is it ?
OK, can you please elaborate the problem
have you tried to clean the drain pump assembly ?
Yes thats correct
You will have to unplug the unit completely and then take the bottom of...clean everything inside..use some towels
after this is done lay it on its side by around 45 degrees so that excess water comes out
yes try to clean as much as you can
This Video will give you an idea on how it should be done

Yes so that if there is any excess water it comes out
Hi Kevin, sorry I haven't been able to get back to you. I removed the housings that I could from inside the machine, so I could see the pump, clawed out debris and tipped the machine sideways in both directions. When I ran it again, it's clearer that it sounds like it's trying to fill, but doesn't sound like it's actually spinning much water - when I opened it mid-cycle there was only a small amount dripping from the top spinner, but the water was definitely hot. I also noticed the cycle seemed to take longer than the minutes it showed initially on the read-out. I reset the machine but haven't had a chance to cycle it since. The video you linked to doesn't show the bosch, which I think actually accesses the pump kit by removing the front door lining and some skirting. What would you advise next? Thanks in advance.
The problem seems to be with a low water pressure...if you have already tried to clean it completely and if everything is clean then the problem is with the circulation pump that is bad and will need replacement
Hi Kevin, is this something I can take out and look at? I found a video of a different bosch model, but it looked semi-possible. Would it be worth me taking a look for more debris stuck behind the pump wheel? If not, would you guess at what I should expect to pay for parts and/or fitting?
Yes it will be worth to check for more debris especially the tube connecting to the spray arms...the repair/replacement will cost around £100 including labor
Hi Kevin, I'm not sure which is the tube connecting to the spray arms - is that the flat plastic piece clipped to the rear of the dishwasher and connecting the two arms? Also, does the cycle time thing suggest any other problem? I don't mind the £100ish as long as the machine won't have to be swapped soon afterwards...
Yes that might be the one...unfortunately I do not have an image for this model number...
If you have already cleaned this one and there is nothing stuck in there then it is better to get the circulation pump replaced
Is there more than one pump in this machine (is their a recirculating pump and a different pump)? When I open the panel to see the pump, I'll also take a look at the tube behind it to check for debris and let you know.
Yes...a circulation pump and a drain pump
