Drain cleaner unfortunately backed up into dishwasher. The machine has been emptied and manually filled with water to clear the drain cleaner.
Although it pumps out ok, it keeps pumping and doesn't move on to the next op?
Should I check water input solenoid or is there a water sensor gone faulty?

Sounds like your dishwasher has sprung a leak & water on the base-plate has activated the flood prevention device. Lean it forward (or backward) to drain the water off the base-plate (have a few towels at hand). Once the water runs out you should be able to restart....Which just leaves you with a leak to find. I hope you didn't use anything terribly corrosive to clear your drains :(

Zipper - You are a star ! Now fixed. although can't detect any leak. Took the left panel off and checked the level float, cleaning it out helped.
Hope I never need to get into the pump. Bosch don't make it easy. It seems you have to take the back unit off which contain the rear levelling feet to enable you to get into the pumps ??
Again Thanks. :D

The drain pump on Bosch/Siemens dishwashers is easy to remove. There is a cover at the front just under the door that provides good access. But the wash motor (depending on model) can be a pain unless you are double jointed. If you have more trouble post the machine E-number which is laser engraved on the top of the door lip. It can sometimes be difficult to spot in poor light. Good luck :D

Thanks Zipper. Will use it 'til it stops and then investigate further. Hopefully it was the drain backing up that gave the problem.
Many thanks for your help.
