It is a Hotpoint Ultima FDW80 dishwasher. When you program it to start it starts to make a buzzing noise as if it is beginning for approx. 10 minutes on the clock counter & then it just stops completely & flashes code AL03.
I am in the U.K.
Thank you for that. We have checked all drainage pipes & they are all clear. We have cleared the water out which has re-set the AL03 code & has now gone. We think we probably have a knacked motor/pump because it is now attempting to take in water which isn't coming & then counting down on the clock where it thinks it is heating the water but unfortunately there isn't any. So it is just counting itself through the program without actually doing anything - would this diagnosis sound sensible to you on this basis??
Thank you very much for your help - much appreciated.
