What is going on with my Bosch (model SHE43M02UC/48) dishwasher?

2 of the last 3 times we have run a load of dishes, the "Sanitized" light has not come on. Each time we have seen soap suds in the bottom of the machine that have never been there before. The first time this happened it also short cycled the rinse...I know because I saw the timer at 30-something, and in less than 10 minutes it said "0". I also noticed that it was set to "Regular Wash" (we always use "Auto Wash") and I was unable to change it back to where it belonged. Even after turning the machine off and back on, I could not change the cycle. I then turned it off and let it sit for about an hour, and at that point I was able to change the cycle. I also ran it through a test load (without soap) and everything seemed to function normally. The next load of dishes the machine seemed to work normal (full rinse, "Sanitized" light on, no suds). The load after that, the rinse appeared to be shorter than expected and the "Sanitized" light again did not come on. However, the inability to change the cycle did not repeat itself. Is something going out, or do we just have a gremlin in our machine?
