I have a problem with my Bosch dishwasher E-nr SGS43T82GB/37.
Pump keeps running with door open and no water gets into dishwasher.

OK, the signs are indicative of the fact that you have a leak into the base; so you are going to need to find the source of that leak/water ingress.

Pressing the reset will have no effect as this is a safety feature of the appliance and it overrides all other function except the power button.

George-Allsorts :

You will need to remove all water from the base and then the appliance should work again...

The microswitch and float are in the center of the base... you will notice it by the large polystyrene float at the base of a rod

Here is a picture of the makeup of it... It is only to help you identify it.. it doesn't look like this when put together

JACUSTOMER-cjp5uamr- :

All water is removed from the dishwasher but that still didn't fix the problem. I have removed the steel drip tray and located the polystyrene float. It is not stuck and goes up and down freely. I could not see a microswitch, as it must be located further up the float rod, ie in the centre of the machine. Symptoms are still the same.

George-Allsorts :

If you are careful, you can turn the appliance on its back and remove the panel on the underneath to access the float..

Locate and test the microswitch with a multimeter

George-Allsorts :

If the pump continues to run thereafter, check the heater leaks, else then there is a problem with the control module

George-Allsorts :

How did you get on ... Do you need further assistance?
