I thought I said, but missed it in my original question. The pump seems to have drained out all the water and the sump is quite dry.
The right side has a set of electrical circuits hidden behind a metal/plastic plate. The left side has some pipes and seems to be similar to what this post http://www.diynot.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=205101 is speaking about, with the pump running continuously but there not being any water in the sump.
I hope that makes sense.
OK. Ive tipped the dishwasher a few different directions to try and get water to come out, but nothing has. In addition, I've given it a bit of a wobble around to see if I can hear anything inside, but there is no sound of water moving.
Is that a good enough test, or do I need to turn the machine on its side. Though some Bosch repairers have said that Bosch machines will normally have some water laying around (in the sump though), so that will probably only have that water escape and not really prove very much
I have a few numbers on the white tag on the top metal part of the door, none of which look like an enr. So here they are:-

Are one of those what you are after?
Ah got it.

Hi George, The problem seems to have solved itself. Not sure what the original problem was, but ive now run one empty load and two full loads and its working. My worry is that a problem that spontaneously disappears may equally well spontaneously re-appear. What are yout thoughts?
Hi George, yes please do provide your opinion and the solution. Many thanks. We were under the impression that we rate the assistance after the solution has been provided.
Hello Mark,The reason I work this way is that if I do not receive the rating for assistance then I do not receive credit for that assistance.. The fact that you changed your name after starting this request for information didn't assist you in gaining my trust that you will complete the rating accordingly.I have informed you that you have a problem with your water inlet and that you need to replace a part that has become defective.. This should have been enough for you to rate the assistance knowing that you would then receive the rest of the information required to purchase the part to be replaced.
Either way, here is the information you need.Part information for the part you'll need to change .. you can purchase it from that same site.The part is on the left side of the dishwasher, behind the metal panel, at the side of the water tank...
Thanks for this information. Cheers, Mark
