When you say it gets stuck on rinse is it just stopping completely?

Or does it just rinse forever untill you stop it?

Is it draining the water out?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It appears to be constantly trying to pump out despite it being empty.
Expert:  Daniel replied 10 months ago.

Ok if its constantly trying to pump all the time then its a water leak in the base thats activated the flood switch under there thats causing this fault.

What you need to do on this is pull the dishwasher out from under the unit and lie it on its back.

This will allow the water in the base to drain out so you will need a towel for this part.

Then stand it up right and this will reset the flood switch.

Retry it from there and hopefully this will get the dishwasher filling with water again.

If it does then fingers crossed its a one off overfill thats caused it and it should be fine from there. But if it happens again then you have a leak in there which you need to find and fix to cure the fault.

That didn't work! No water came out.
Expert:  Daniel replied 10 months ago.
Ok if no water came out and the dishwasher is still pumping all the time then you need to remove the left hand side panel.From there look in the bottom right corner and you will see a red plastic rod going down into the base.
Left this up and down a few times and then make sure it's in the down position and then see how it goes from there.As sometimes this can get stuck and This causes the pump to run all the time as well.But if that's all ok then the only this left here is the control board as that can fail and cause the pump to run all the time as well.
