I have a Bosch dishwasher Model# SHU4006UC. 

While running a recent load of dishes it started to leak ... a lot. 

After trying to run the machine again, water wasn't running into the machine.  I replaced the water inlet valve and it seems to wash the dishes well but the bottom of the dishwasher still has dirty water in it after it runs.

Any suggestions?

I would check for a partial blockage in the drain system, from the drain pump to the outlet at the sink. I am unsure if these DW fill on time, pressure switch or load sensing. Time fill would cause a leak and all could retain dirty water at the end of the cycle, with a blockage.
Start at the sink outlet and then go to the drain pump.

Hope this helps.;)

Comment from Bob Sankie:

Last time I was on a Bosch it was a "simpler " version with a Mech timer and the water was controlled by a pressure sensing mechanism

Thanks for the advice. 

I checked for blockage starting at the sink but everything appears clear.

Any suggestions on what to look at next?

if you remove and inspect the drain pump motor,i'll bet you will find the plastic bearing cover at the shaft end of the motor is full of water,which means the bearing has been damaged and during use,the motor seizes up and stops pumping- have seen this many times- replace the drain pump,relatively cheap repair,but somewhat labor intensive(need to remove d/w and open bottom clamshell to service)

I replaced the drain pump but that didn't fix the problem. 

The bottom of the dishwasher still has water in it after they cycle ends. 

Could it have anything to do with the water level control?

It is in the dishwasher.

After the cycle runs, water is left behind in the machine, not just the normal amount left that keeps the seal wet. It leaves about 1/4" to 1/2" of water in the dishwasher. 

It can tend to leave some waste behind from the dishes.

Can someone tell me how the story with the Bosch dishwasher with dirty water left after the final cycle ended back in 2005.  I have the same problem and same model (SHU4006UC).  I have the machine torn apart, ready to order parts but flying blind with no manual.  I eliminated drain hose think I need a new drain pump.  Any advice welcome.

I decided to replace the dishwasher rather than keep spending $$ on parts and not knowing if it would solve the problem.

We bought our house with the Bosch in it.  The only thing about the Bosch that we really liked was the stainless steel interior.  Other than that, we prefer the less expensive Whirlpool I installed.

Hope you have better luck with yours.
