Can you start a new cycle and when its about to empty the washing water, open the door and tell me if the water is hot?



Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi Rob I run the cycle and it washes for a bit but stops on drying all the time since it stopped on this a few days ago. When it stops the orange LED flashes aswell as the green LED on start/pause button and the dishwasher gets stuck with constant sound of the system draining but no water is in the bottom. The water that I can see on the plates is cold though. I have checked and the pipes don't seem to be blocked. I have turned power off and on and then randomly it will turn itself on making the same noise with the same lights flashing. Any ideas?

When its making the constant draining noise, turn off the power and lean the machine back then.

Does water come out the back?

I have tried tipping the machine on its near back and no water is coming out?
Expert:  Rob replied 2 years ago.


Did you do this immediately it kept making the draining noise, like i suggested?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have tilted the machine to near on its back whilst it was making the drainage noise and cannot see any water the noise lasts for quite a while?

This is a bit odd as you are descibing two seperate issues.

We need to chek the heater.

For this you will need a multimeter. Test the elemnt itself. If its open circuit you will need to replace it

Let me know what you find.
