Just got it out of storage cos the full size Bosch silver hydrosensor DW failed.
All the slimline is doing is draining!!! Is this a problem that can be easily fixed?

Can anyone give me some advice?

Slimline failure

Hi! You could start checking the aquastop sensor at the bottom of the dw. If you unproperly moved the machine then you could have some water on the bottom plate. The water might cause the floating disk to activate the security switch. In Bosch machines you can usually check it by removing cabinet sides and check the position of a small (usually) red rod. This is the arm connected to the floating disk and the part which moves the security switch. Removing the basement and gaining access to wash and drain pumps is usually not so easy to do on Bosch machines. If you have water spilled on the bottom plate and the aquastop security is activated you should have the drain pump activated continuously as you plug the machine.
Good luck
