Resolved Question:

the dishwasher has a puddle of water sitting in the bottom of the machine, and will not work at all, i don't think that the drain is blocked, i guess the pump is broken but it is only 2 years old and only used twice a week, please advise if there is a reset for the pump or the operating system

Hiya,

If you start a new programme the first thing that should happen is the pump runs.

Do you hear it hum?

 

Did you check the drain hose and the connection it goes onto for a blockage?

Did you check the pump impellor inside the appliance to see if it's jammed?

 

Thanks

when i try to start any programme nothing happens... i don't think the drain is blocked - is the an interlock if there is water in the machine that would stop the system starting? can you tell me how to get at the pump impellar
Expert:  Techdesk replied 2 years ago.

Hiya,

Yes, there is a door lock that prevents the mchine working when the door is open.

 

Take the filters out.

Remove the water from inside the machine manually.

Look into the sump bowl.

On the left side is a cover held by a single screw.

It's a torx screw so you need the correct tool.

Take the screw out.

Take the cover off.

Clean any debris around the impellor.

Turn the impellor manually to ensure it's not jammed.

 

Refit the cover and screw.

Refit the filters.

 

Try the machine again.

 

Let me know what happens.

Thanks

Thanks

Good luck with the appliance.
