Having problems with your Bauknecht Dishwashers ?

I have a Bosch integrated dishwater that is just over 2 years old. It has suddenly stopped working and the tray at the bottom is not emptying, although you can still hear a buzzing sound. The cycle does not go beyond this point. I have emptied the tray of water and the dishwasher will start again, and pump water in, but it then stops, as though it is not able to pump water out. Does anyone know what this is? Could it be the pump? A blockage?
