Dishwasher control module burned out physicaly burned plastic cover only damage to unit itself. I checked with Bosch about recall since this is a common problem and some models are involved in recall for this. However, Bosch said my Dishwasher was not covered by recall, that my serial number indicated that it was built after corrections/updated control modules. I had the same failure, just not a fire as a result. I was able to get a new module installed and it worked fine for about 2 months but now it is not cleaning, and when its started it sets to 199 minutes run time no matter which setting it is programed to.The original control unit ran 15 min. on rinse,60 min. on regular wash, and 90min. on pot scrub. This thing is definately got problems, and Bosch will not help with repairs or reimbursment.

Comment from BSH HOME APPLIANCES CORPORATION 2/27/2012
The dishwasher in this report was built later than the recalled units and has a different control. The control may have a component failure mode that appears similar to that in the recalled units, but it does not present the potential to possibly progress to a fire as found in some of the recalled units. If the replacement control is not damaged but is defective, it is covered by a limited one year parts warranty.
