If you run the engine on your pressure washer for
3-5 minutes without pressing the trigger on the spray gun,
circulating water in the pump can reach temperatures
above 125°F.The system engages to cool the pump by
discharging the warm water onto the ground

Bosch SHU43C My Bosch SHU43C is stuck with the drain pump running. I ran the self-test and it gave me the fault code 4 wich indicates a filling fault.

Does this indicate a stuck float, or is the problem with the control board? Where is the float located? Are diagrams/pictures available on-line anywhere?

Have a Kenmore dishwasher #665.1677993, approx. 13 years old. Upon starting new cycle the pump turns on for a few short seconds, then off, then after a couple minutes it goes on again for a few seconds then off, then later in the cycle it does stay on for a longer period of time. In conjuntion with this intermitent problem it has begun leaking out the bottom of the front door. I have checked drain line, check valve, strainer/screen and vent in the door.
