Electrolux ESL4114 problem

I have a problem with my dishwasher where it is is not working past the first stage where it pumps out any excess water. When I start it I hear it pump out the water and then just a humming sound and it never goes past this.

I replaced the inlet valve as a plumber had said this is probably the issue. this has not fixed it, first time I started it after putting the new Solenoid valve in, the dishwasher did fill with water but didn't continue onto the next step.

Now it doesn't do anything, starting a cycle starts the pump to get rid of any water from the last cycle then thats it, just a humming noise.
Any ideas on what could cause this?

Thanks for any help

Bad washing

Have you considered cleaning the drain filter and the impeller arms?

Your user guide will have instructions on this. Also buy dishwasher cleaning kit from the supermarket (this is meant to be used in an empty dishwasher). Follow the instructions on the box of the cleaning kit.

It isnt cleaning ot rinsing properly

Make sure the drain hose has a clear path. Also where the hose connects to your sink drain,if you pull off the hose to check the connection for a blockage have a empty bucket handy to catch the water. If the drainage path is totally clear and it still does not work right then the water pump is weak. I hope this helps you.

Goes through cycles but does not clean dishes

Do you know if the washing arms are turning. Normally after the machine fills up the main pump begins and the washer sounds like it is washing dishes. If you carefully open the washer at this point (just a little) it will be eveident that water has been sprayed around inside as it will be dripping everywhere. If not you pump hasn't activated. This does not mean you pump is broken however it could be the pressure level switch sticking and not completing the circuit that starts the pump.
