Hi meeey,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: washer wont empty water

If the motor runs but it won't empty then the pump needs replacement. If the unit washes but the motor won't come on to empty then you have a control problem. Either way I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner. You might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repair man.

The motor runs in one direction to wash and the opposite direction to pump out the water. Look at the motor direction controls to see what is starting to fail.

The dishwasher fills up it starts to spray the water but after 5 seconds it emptys. It then does the other the rest of the wash normally. This happens in all modes.


Check to see if water at the base of the washer has caused the "anti flood system" to trigger. The anti flood device is a polystireene float and micro switch that does trigger (and puts the washer in pump out mode) once water via leak or spill is detected. You can tilt the washer to 45 degrees and check if a small amount of water comes out of the bottom. As you indicate that the washer emptys after 5 sec I do think that the anti flood system is causing this.

Disher washers starts and then stops and ECO 40 flashes.


sounds like water in the base has caused the safety float switch to activate try tipping unit backwards if water comes from base this is causing the problem if water has leaked past the door seal intermittently it will eventually collect enough in the base panel to activate the safety float switch tipping the machine and emptying any water in the base should clear the problem however if you experience the same problem within a short time period then it probably means that a hose or component is leaking into the base panel and would to be found resolved

Srs4312gb constantly trying to empty sump even though empty will not start any other program


This seems to be that the Anti Flood system has triggered. This device detects water leaks / spills to the bottom of the washer and automatically puts the washer in pump out mode and shuts off the water inlet. The device is made up of a pollystireene float and micro switch that activates once the float detects any leaks / spillage. Dry water and check for leaks and this should solve the problem

Had blocked drain so water from sink backed up into d.washer. Drain clear but d.washer keeps emptying and won't fill


Make sure drain hose from dishwasher is higher than water inlet if not it will do just like a washing machine if the drain hose is lower than water level it will empty while filling.

Hi, my zanussi zdf221 dishwasher wont work, it makes a noise and constantly empties, any ideas please


The outlet pump is triggered by the anti flood micro switch via the polystyreene float on the base of the washer. If any water for whatever reason (leaky pipe)is on the floor the machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and only works once the water and the cause is rectified

WATER DOESNT DRAIN


I had the same problem. I took out the filter and cleaned it, scooped out as much water as I could and poured some sink unblocker into the bottom of the washer, followed by some hot water. After leaving it a while I took the plastic mesh cover off, and removed and cleaned all the bits I could (will be different on different washers). Then I put it all back together and ran a quick wash, and it worked. I did a couple more washes with it empty in case there was any cleaner still lurking. Result - one unblocked (and sparkly clean!) dishwasher. Hope this helps!

if the drain is plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap, then this spigot is blanked off to prevent water coming out when you empty the sink. remove blank
