Hello there, the dishwasher does not seem to be filling with water, i have water to the dishwasher but it does not seem to be letting it in?.
Tried the dishwasher on different progams but still nothing happens.
Just to let you know as this may be to some help in fault finding, the ouside drain blocked on the same day as the dishwasher stopped working, so i was thinking that the pump could not get rid of the water of which was the cause of the problem

Hello, Theres a Floater inside the tub protecting against overflow. when it is
pushed up or stuck by debris, and does not fall
down to its inactive position, it can prevent water from filling. So be sure there is no debris and move the floater up and down until it falls down in its normal position.
Also dishwashers can lose their pump prime and will not fill with water if
there is no priming water in the bottom of the unit. To solve this problem, you must add
several quarts of water to the unit. Let it settle down in the bottom
until it stops going down. Start the washer and you will hear this
water pump out of the drain and the unit will now fill with fresh water..
open the dishwasher in the tub on your left bottom you will see a large plastic bubble lift the bubble (float) up and, down vertically, listen for a "click" the float sits above the water fill switch: the float's weight causes a pin on the float to press down on the switch to let water in the float sometimes can get stuck in the up position by debris and, prevent the fill switch from letting in water. When the float is lifted by the water in the tub to a predetermined height the pin comes off the fill switch lever and, turns off the water so that the dishwasher tub does not overflow. check this please.
I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying... Dishwasher Spray Arms not Spinning
You have a internal leak in the dishwasher...there is a safety float system in the base (below where you put the dishes in!) of the unit, which in the event of water in the base will stop the cycle and activate the drain pump continiously....
You will have to open the unit and find the leak. Don't know these models, but usually you have to remove side panels and front panel, drain water from the base and re-start....then check with flashlight where the leak is.
You have a blockage in your drain pump.
Remove all filters and scoop out as much water as you can from the unit. Check in the bottom for any objects stuck there. Some models have a cover on the bottom inside the unit, which once removed, will expose the drain pump impeller. If yours does, remove the cover(usually 1 screw only) and free the drain pump impeller.
NB: DO NOT REMOVE THE SCREWS WHICH HOLD THE BASE TUB IN PLACE! These are the screws on the edge of the white plastic "bowl" inside the unit. The drain pump cover will be INSIDE this bowl and will be quite small, no more than 5cm dia....
If this does not work, you will have to remove the drain pump from the bottom or front of the unit to get the blockage out.
