Question about Dishwashers
This is a brand new dishwasher. The first time we used it we forgot to take the end off of the wastepipe and consequently the machine could not drain. Once we took the end off the pipe, it drained but now it is just constantly trying to drain. We have read other problems on here (for other makes) which suggest there may be a tray under the machine which needs emptying but we are unable to find anything like this.

First the source of the leak needs to be identified. pull the machine out from under the counter and remove the left side panel exposing the blue float assembly. Turn the machine on and observe the fill cycle. if water comes out anywhere on the fill mechanism then the inlet valve needs to be replaced. once the machine has filled and begun to cycle cancel the program and drain the unit. observe closly where the leak is happening. a leak during drain usually indicated a leaking drain hose.

fault is that there is a leak. the tray at base of dishwasher is full of water which operates a float and turns on drain pump. tilt over 45deg and water will run out and then it will work or remove bottom front panel and mop out (better). then find leak

SOURCE: Pump won't stop draining
you will almost certainly have a build up of water in the base. remove the water and retry. check to see if limit switch is not sticking or has possibly gone faulty.failing this, your board is faulty.

We eventually, after several days of these problems, called a technician. It took him a couple of days to come round. Then when he did - he switched it on and absolutely no problem. His explanation was that if you interrupt the cycle whilst on a hot cycle, it sometimes thinks it's in flood mode. If you leave it off for a couple of days - it's OK.
1) Try not to interrupt hot cycle
2) If the pump continues to run - switch it off and wash dishes manually for 2 or 3 days.
Hope this helps others.

Yes, Asko dishwashers can leave a small amount of water in the sump after a cycle completes. At the beginning of most cycles the sump is pumped and new water added.
