This answer was rated:

Bosch dishwasher type FD8111 On fill from start the water solenoid valve switch on and off every few seconds until it is filled, but it all work Ok from then on, did check filters all all are clean There is an other number Type SGS3062GB/02
thank you Mr H Fowler

When you get this fault it usually down to a blockage in the pressure chamber and the hose going into the sump of the dishwasher. So what happens is the water is slow at entering the dishwasher so the micro switch stops the flow of water to allow it to enter without leaking then lets the valve come on again to put more water in and so on.
What you need to d to clear this is clean it out. Its a bit of a strip down to do this but to do it you need to remove the top of the dishwasher.
Then remove the outer door panel,
Then remove both side panels,
Then remove the plastic trim on the front at the bottom.
Then you can remove the metal trim behind there.
Then from there look on the far left and you will see a hose going from the plastic filling tank to the sump.
Pull this out and give it a good clean out.
Then remove the pressure chamber in the bottom right corner of the filling tank when you look on the left hand side.
Give the both a clean out and refit them and retry the dishwasher. This will then allow the water to enter the dishwasher and normal speed and stop the over filling switch from kicking in and stopping the water from entering as normal.
Try that and see how it goes and that should cure the fault from there.
If you need anymore info just get back to me.
