Answer Dug, You'll need to do the basic checks first, Check the drain hose, air gap and disposal connections for clogs and kinks. Then remove and check the drain pump and impeller 167082 and housing for debris and clogs as well.
Where can I find the regulator water level part#263185 on the machine, I need to replace it?
Answer Hello Bosch dishwasher model shx46a05uc/33,
The float switch (AP2802373) is located on the left side of the unit on the fill assembly. If you follow the water line from the back of the water valve, it will lead right to the assembly.
We think we need to reset our panel. We cannot get the dishwasher to start. It keeps wanting to drain but no water is in the dishwasher. I cannot find any control to stop draining under the menu.
Answer Hello LCP. Look in the base bottom of the unit, not in the tub, you will see that the dishwasher is leaking. This causes the drain pump to remain on. You will need to repair the leak to fix the drain pump issue.
My Bosch dishwasher is having a filling problem. On the last rinse cycle, it won't stop filling. It will fill and drain and keep on doing that. However, for the pre-wash and wash cycles it can fill properly.
I've changed the water level regulator P/N 263185 and the control module P/N 266746 and the problem remains.
Answer Hello. It sounds like the drain hose needs an air gap loop and it need to be above the tub assembly in the drain hose. If not, it will cause the water to siphon out of the tub and not fill the tub assembly. If the drain pump is running as the water enters, and there is not water standing in the base of the machine, replave the control module. If there is standing water in the base, look for a leak causing the issues you are having.

What is the proper water level and how do you identify it?
Answer Hello Dave! Once filled, the water should be right at/touching the heater element within the dishwasher. Hope this helps!
