Thanks for that, what you can try is to turn off power to the SW from the circuit panel in your home, Then wait 30 full mintes. If that doesnt help, you will unfortunately need a new main cotrol board due to a component failure.But in that case, your DW should still be covered for 24 months so you will neeed to call Bosch using the phone # ***** the user manual or even the warranty card. They will schedule a repair tech to coem out and replace that main control board free of charge for you;-) Sometimes though, the boards memory becomes glitched, thats why I mentioned you need to remove power from the machine to see if it will clear in the 1/2 hour time period.In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated.There is NO cost to rate Kindly;-)Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you..Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.Thank you and have a nice day!Tech Michael
