\015\012When\015\012the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will\015\012stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all\015\012buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the\015\012element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water. Check the element for damage (burnt/shorted).

\015\012To clear the flashing light you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

\015\012-high temp wash
\015\012-heated dry
\015\012-high temp wash
\015\012-heated dry

\015\012...all\015\012the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic\015\012cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2\015\012minutes).
\015\012You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

\015\012If\015\012the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit\015\012(ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could\015\012also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed\015\012(slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door\015\012when you close it).

My Bosch dishwasher SGS46E26GB/90 makes a knocking noise when started. the timer does not advance and the check water light comes on.There is water in the bottom (up to the bottom of the door) . If I reset the DW the water drains ok. If I mess with the buttons E3 shows on the display the 'quick' light stays on and the eco light flashes. I've checked the filter where the water hose is fastens to the rear. I've cleaned the filters at the bottom of the DW and cleaned out the pump area under them.

Bosch Exxcel model number SGS46E12GB had the check water light on a week ago, checked supply and cleaned filters, all good. light still on, got upset and slammed the door, light off. since then the unit will either wash stuff, or not. didn't seem the arms were spraying very well when I opened the door, so I bypassed the door switch tonight and put it through a pre rinse cycle.
