Machine operates for 5 minutes, and then switches to the first light, that keeps flashing. tried cleaning filters, adding more salt, checked to see if there are any blockages. to no avail. can anyone help
I've just had this issue and managed to get it working again.
The problem is more than likely water sat in the bottom of the machine. Unload and unplug your machine. Tip it backwards by about 45 degrees, and you should notice about 1/2 pint of water leaking out of the back on to the floor (make sure you have some old towels handy).
After doing this my machine started to work again.

Intake/Drain light flashing means an issue while draining. The
dishwasher is not draining properly. Please check for air gap on the dishwasher
is not clogged. It prevents dishwasher from draining properly and sometimes the
drain flow is restricted due to gunk. Cleaning or bypassing the air gap will
resolve the issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is due to seized
(or stuck) drain pump. Keep handy large bowls and towels to soak the water out.
Disconnect the power to the dishwasher or turn off the breaker to the
dishwasher. Tip machine on its back; remove screws that hold the bottom tray
on. Remove the hoses to the main motor, remove electrical connections and
switch it on. If the error still appears then turn the rotary selector switch
to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx.
5 secs to cancel the error message. Switch the appliance off and then back on
again. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
Try running a cleaning cycle with no dishes. If you have hard water, try adding a little CLR, or cleaning solution. Check the bottom of the washer for clogged bottom drains. Also check the manual if you have it. Sometimes holding down the button for almost a minute will reset the systems alert for cleaning. Unplug and let it set for a few minutes. Good luck
Well first of all you can check that the stopcock is opened fully or whether the water inlet hose is kinked. Check that the water inlet filter is not clogged and clean it, if necessary, as described in the operating instructions. Check that the drain pump is not clogged.
Reset the error message as follows: To cancel the error message, turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the appliance off and then back on again.
The error indicates that the machine has taken too long to drain the water. Do the following.
Switch off the machine, unplug or disconnect the mains power to the machine and turn off the water supply to the machine.
Remove the access panel on the lower right front of the machine.
3.Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood. 4.Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked or restricted. 5.Also check that the main waste drain pipe and one way valve to a sink waste connection if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required. 6.Access the pump from under the lower rotor arm and protective grille and check that the impeller is free to move and is not clogged or restricted by debris or sludge. Clean as required. 7.Reconnect the power and switch the machine on. If the problem persists then do the following. 8.Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power. 9.Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational. 10.Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage. 11.Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on. 12.If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.
Depress start button till start light goes out. Close door, drain pump should run for a while. Wait for end of program, rer-try a new program start. This process is re-setting memory.If this fails to sort problem then start checking components, ie: fill valve water on? heaters open circuit/down to earth, drain pump, is it emptying, wash pump.
the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic
cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2
minutes). You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.
the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit
(ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could
also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed
(slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door
when you close it).
Here are the eco related error codes for your washer.. 1)Light 3 (eco) flashes. Water is present in the flood catching tray at
the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More
often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply
tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very
slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was
fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located
in the flood catch tray.
Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1
at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the
Wash indicator lights 3 + 5 (eco + pre) flashing rapidly. Filter is clogged. Pull out the filter and clean it. 3)Runs for approx. 3 minutes and then stops. Lights 3 + 4 (eco and fast)
flash. Probably caused by being plumbed into a hot rather than cold
water supply. The incoming water is hotter than required for the wash
which causes the machine to cut out. Plumbing the machine into a cold
water supply will fix the problem with no apparent long term problems.
I have this problem frequetly - it's an easy one to fix! Just press the programme button which changes the programme setting you want (on my built-in GSX4756 it's the last button on the right) and keep it pressed in until the beeping stops. Then start it again (will probably be on the rinse programme if it's like mine).
