Possibly a kink in the pump out hose.  That was my problem, thought it was pump, and the kink was the first thing the repair man looked for and found.  Part available in any hardward 10' dishwasher hose.

Need to reset, can't get it off the error code for overflow


sounds more like the waste hose is blocked or the pump has packed in. If the machine cannot empty the water this will always appear.

The eco light is flashing constantly on my Dishlex Global 300 dishwasher, it is making a noise like a pump is running continously, but the unit will not operate. Can you give me some possible faults and...


Hi,

The symptoms on a Dishlex Global 300 dishwasher:
  • eco light is flashing constantly;
  • noise on pump running continuously;
  • but the unit will not operate.
Possible corrective actions include:
  • water level - pls check incoming water pressure, filter, water level sensor, water valve;
  • base/bottom overflow sensor - there is a float switch in the base of the machine inside a small plastic dish. Behind the kick panel, access through a metal lid/panel/cover secured by 2 small screws. Dry completely the area;
  • Air/dry/ventilate the unit/system for a couple of days;
  • reduce incoming water pressure.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Dishwasher keeps pumping out - won't start cycle - green light flashing on panel


I had same symptoms on a Hotpoint dishwasher.
Turned out to be a failed water heater.
The logic in this case goes like this:
When wash cycle starts, the first thing the machine does is pump out any water that has collected in the sump since it was last run.
It then allows a small amount of clean water in and enables the water heater.
If heater okay, it then continues with the rest of cycle.
In this case, the control board detected failed heater so pumps out the water and then stops with an error code shown by a flashing lamp.

No simple fix I'm afraid - machine had to be turned on its side, bottom panel removed, several items had to be removed to get at the water heater which was then repalced with a new one.

You dont state what make/model your dishwasher is so maybe worth adding this information as someone else may recognise your fault and have a quick fix.

WATER WILL NOT DRAIN OUT


Sounds like either you have a blockage in the drain pump or the drain hose is blocked.
The washing machine will run the drain pump for about 2 to 3 minutes to empty water from the drum then stop automatically.
If the pump is blocked or the drain hose blocked or kinked then water will be left in the drum.
Blockages are usually caused by buttons, bra wires or metal objects from pockets eg coins.
The pump can be popped open using simple tools ie screwdriver and any obstruction removed easily. The drain hose can be detached and a metal object eg knife dropped through to test for a blockage.hope this helps

Hotpoint built in dishwasher


Check your air gap on your kitchen sink. If equipped, you will most likely find it clogged. Pull off the metal cap, then unscrew the white or clear cap. You should find your clog there. Replace both caps and remember to pre-rinse the dishes better before loading.
