Bosch Dishwasher won't cycle or spray water. Any ideas?
Hi everyone, first time posting here. My Bosch shu43c05uc/17 dishwasher isn’t spraying water or cycling through. The spray arms are clean and the filter is clean, so I don’t believe that’s the problem. I’ll start it, hot water gets pumped in, and there’s a loud hum sound. It’ll run for the duration of the cycle, but it won’t cycle through the different modes. It’s a sound that isn’t typical. And sometimes it will sit on the last minute until I cancel the cycle. It is able to drain.
I’ve reset it via turning power off. I’ve run the diagnostic, but I don’t believe that’s working properly (only showing the number “2” which isn’t an option online). The Bosch manual is terrible and provides zero information on this. Bosch told me to reach out to an authorized service tech.
What are some options causing the problem? I’m not finding much information online and before I call the handy man, I’d like to narrow down my options because their troubleshooting gets quite costly. And I’d even do the repair myself if it was reasonable.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks so much!

@bigdchi #2 could be a heating fault. How did you run the diagnostics? Checked your circulation pump yet?
I ran diagnostics by pressing normal and rinse/hold then the power button. It took a number of times to get it right. When it entered, it showed "2" immediately, which seemed odd for the test to start out showing an error, that's why I wrote it off. The test ran for about 5 minutes and it wasn't clear when it ended.
Where is the circulation pump located? Not being a technician, if I'm able to access the circulation pump, how would I know there's something wrong with it?
As for the heating element, forgive me if my comment is stupid here, but the water is getting heated, when it runs I can feel the heat when I open and cancel the cycle. I'm assuming there's another heating element that may play a role in this?
My gut tells me it's pump related (despite it being able to be drained) since water isn't being pushed up into the spray arms. Plus, the noise, which isn't terrible, just not normal, sounds like something isn't functioning properly. Are pumps a big repair?
Thanks for the help!
I have a bosch with the same problem, goes through the cycles but never washes with the sprayer. Inlet valve, drain motor, heater all seem to be working correctly, even spits out the soap when it should. I have tried a new circulation pump and control panel but no change. Mine is older so no fault codes. What was the fix for your washer?

I had to clean out the inlet pipe below the pressure chamber leading into the machine as it was full of gunge.
Prior to cleaning this the Machine wasn't filling. It's now filling but similar probles to above. Incidentally the Pressure chamber Water Lever Control System looks a bit full of gunge also, so I'm wondering if this is my overriding issue?
Like the guys any help Greatly appreciated. As No Technician will come to my house now with the current lockdown situation.

I chased all the same symptoms . First not getting clean and not hot . Thought the flow sensor was the problem , then no flow through the top arm . Suspected the Circ pump , but it was perfect .
Issue turned out to be the inlet valve filter clogged with debris .
Check it first , its the easiest to access . I didn't because there always was water in the washer , the amount seems to be critical . Manually adding water during the cycle would have proved the cause . The level should be above the fine screen , almost at the level of overflowing . Also the cheapest part to replace . AND it is easy to clean if you have the T15 security driver . I bought a new one but opened up the clogged one to see what the mystery was . No mystery found - so if you are in a bind clean it out .
