  • Look for a “cancel and drain” button on the dishwasher’s control panel. To start draining, press and hold this button if your model has one.
  • In the absence of a “cancel and drain” option on your Bosch dishwasher, start a regular cycle and let it run for around 45 seconds. Any Bosch dishwashing cycle begins with a 45-second draining period. After the forced drain is finished, turn off the power right away.
