Them 2 lights flashing is a time out draining error.
When you start the dishwasher going does the pump run at the start?
Do you have power going to the pump.
Ok set it going and just listen and see if you can hear a humming noise?
Or get a screwdriver and touch the side of the pump and see if you can feel it vibrateing.
no humming heard but machine light has gone to wash, wife doesn't know what happens/or what lights come on when she switches it on so I have no idea where it is in the cycle now.
I'm more concerned with water coming out the machine. apart from the obvious leaks from the pumps or hoses why would water appear?
I'm a mechanic by trade but dish washers /washing machines are not my game. I realise I need a meter to check whether its the waste pump (i cant see it being the main wash pump) or supply (possible circuit board) does the waste pump run from the start?
Reset the program by pressing and holding the startn button for a few seconds. This should reset the board. Then retry the cycle and see if it drains the water then.
emptied water again, reconnected, held switch in for three bleeps and reset to fast wash. machine started operating then loud click (like a valve shutting). could hear water boiling took off rear cover and could see water boiling up the clear tube but nothing else seems to be happening. Opened door and saw hot water on bottom of washer as if pump not working could not hear pump noise.
Did it put water into the washer?
And if you reset it does it drain the water out know?
Are the same lights still flashing?
Ok this might just be a pump fault which shouldnt be that much to fix.
What you can try is get a quote from a company who dont charge a callout fee.
They will come out and check it out for you. Then if its a motor or control board fault then they will say and you can just scrap it then. But if its a pump fault then they should be able to fix for you and should be that much. I will say about £60-£70 fitted.
So might be worth try that first.
