When it stops with the 2 beeps is it still full of water in there?

If so then when you reset it and start a new cycle does it drain the water out then?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It varies. Usually no water.

Ok the 2 beeps is a time out draining error code.

So if it is draining out but stilling giving the 2 beeps then its thinking there water in there when there isn't.

For this you need to pull the dishwasher out and lie it on its back and remove bottom base cover.

Then you need to locate the pressure sensor. This is on the left hand side of the sump between the sump and the salt chamber.

Remove it from the sump and give it a good clean out and check the wiring connection on there.

Once clear refit the pressure sensor and retry the dishwasher and see how it goes from there. Fingers crossed it may have been a blocked pressure sensor causing this.

Try that first and see what you find and let me know.
