My Bosch classixx dishwasher had check water light on

This answer was rated:

Hi, my Bosch classixx dishwasher had check water light on yesterday, did usual tilt,and light went off, but now when you start cycle it starts for approx 5seconds and clicks off, motor at bottom of dishwasher continues until you open the door then stops. Dishwasher approx 10 years old

Assuming the motor sound you can hear is the drain pump, most probably you have not removed all the water from the float area in the base.

drain pump is the motor I hear, where or how do I remove all the water

If the water isn't being fully expelled when tilting backwards at 45 degs then access to the base to use towels to remove the water will be necessary.

What is the Enr of the appliance... This can be found etched onto the uppermost part of the doors metal inner.

It's fairly faint but SGS53C12CB/21

Looking at the diagram of your appliance, it has a removable panel underneath the appliance.. so tilt the appliance to its rear and remove the panel.. any water remaining can then be mopped. After mopping, check the condition of the float and its switch which operates the pump when water enters the base.

Did that, no change

ok.. have you checked the switch is not stuck?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No but need to go to work now will try that later

Ok, I will await your response and forthcoming rating

Is there any water in the base again?
