I have a Moffat Dishwasher,it's a portable one, bought about 3 years ago.Its in our cottage used every month for a lot then winterized if needed. Over the past 9 months when it's start it will go through the motions of filling with water, heating if nessessary but not pumping water through the agitators. About halfway through the wash cycle the pumping will start up. We let it run through the rest of the cycle then put more soap in and start from beginning and the next load is fine. No more problems for the rest of our stay.

Now unfortunately the pumping never starts, everything else appears to be the same but it just never agitates or pumps out the water.

What's up?

hi ok so the water comes in it fills up but never starts to pump the water just sits there and the timer advances
