Tarvi...I don't know what the problem is...hard to diagnose these things. If the unit is working correctly, I suggest that you simply cut the power for a few minutes and then restart it. That may clear our a trouble code.

Try to tilt your dishwasher forwards. Be aware that water will leak out of the front. Once this is clear it should work. I paid an engineer to come and tell me this. If your machine is not completely level it causes it to over fill and after a time will not work. Good Luck

SOURCE: Odd fault codes then stops working.

I had a hotpoint engineer try to fix this type of problem.
He insisted that there was something stuck in the bottom of the filter or pump.

Sure enough there was.
1. Unplug your dishwaser at the wall. Check its off or disconnected.
2. Remove the grill under the bottom rack.
3. Ensure that the filter is free from food and other obstacles and clean the filter.
4. Before replacing filter etc, get a piece of metal coat hanger wire and care fully insert it down the channel under the filter to free any lodged items. You may also see a small white impleller try to turn this with your finger or the coat hanger wire (this is the info from the engineer!).
5. replace filter and retry a wash.

This routine fixed or machine twice and will hopefully fix yours!

Don't forget to rate me!

fyi
The third time about 1 year later this occured again and even hotpoint gave up as they could not fix the machine. (after multiple visits). I think that the two flashing lights are were a red herring and the dishwasher had a separate intermittent fault. Hotpoint replaced the unit for a mimum charge. Callout + 40.

it sounds like you are going into flood mode. tip the unit 45 degrees to the side and see if you are getting loads of water pouring out. if so you have a leak and need to check components in the base.

SOURCE: check water light is on

I had the same problem! First disconnect mains power, then switch off the mains water to the water input hose, and disconnect the hose. Disconnect the waste outlet hose from your drainage. ( this will release some water from the hose ends, so a washing up bowl would be handy ) You will need to tip the dishwasher on to it's back, be carefull not to damage the waste outlet hose, and watch out from more water spillage. Next remove the two screws on the base metal cover, and spring out the cover from the two side clips, the cover can then be removed, you should have a screw holding an earth lead remove screw and lead from cover.
Inside the bottom of the dishwasher you will see a small electric pump fitted to the side of the dishwashers drain, it has two wires with spade connector on them, disconnect these from the pump noting colour of the wires for reassembling. The pump has the same diameter hose as the outlet hose. Next carefully remove the rubber elbow pipe from the pump and hose end this will need to be washed with clean water. Then to remove the pump, press and hold down the locking tab, where the pump is fitted to the drain, and twist the pump anti-clockwise. The pump will then release from the drain. Inspect the pump impellers for damage, and that the pump has free movement, also check condition of the rubber O-ring. Inspect inside of drain for broken bits of china and glass, remove and clean, also check the outlet hose for any blockages.
( run some water though the hose backwards from the water tap and collect it in a bowl from the pump end of the hose ) Reassembly is the reverse of the above, check electrics inside have not got wet, if ok switch on. The check water light should now be off.

Indesit D41 Dishwasher draining problem. the filter on my dishwasher isn't letting through water, I attacked it with a plunger but I don't know how to open it up to unblock it. please help


First check this. Clean the water inlet filter at the tap outlet regularly. - Turn off the water tap. - Unscrew the end of the water inlet hose, remove the filter and clean it carefully under running water. - Replace the filter and screw the water hose back into position.
Then, if needed check this. Cleaning the filters
The filter assembly consists of three filters which remove food residues from the washing water and then recirculate the water. They should be cleaned if you wish to achieve the best results in every wash. Clean the filters regularly. The dishwasher should not be used without filters, or if the filter is loose. After several washes, check the filter assembly and if necessary clean it thoroughly under running water, using a non-metallic brush and following the instructions below: 1. Turn the cylindrical filter C in an anti-clockwise direction and pull it out (fig. 1). 2. Remove the cup filter B by exerting a slight pressure on the side flaps (fig. 2). 3. Slide out the stainless steel plate filter A (fig. 3). 4. Inspect the trap and remove any food residue. NEVER REMOVE the wash cycle pump (black detail) (fig. 4).
Always keep the door of the appliance ajar in order to avoid moisture from forming and being trapped inside the machine. Clean the seals around the door and detergent dispensers regularly using a damp sponge. This will avoid food becoming trapped in the seals, which is the main cause behind the formation of unpleasant odours.
Preventing unpleasant odours
Food residue may become encrusted onto the sprayer arms and block the holes used to spray the water. It is therefore recommended that the arms are checked from time to time and cleaned with a small non-metallic brush. The two sprayer arms may both be removed. To remove the upper sprayer arm, rotate the locking ring in an anti-clockwise direction. The upper sprayer arm should be replaced with the holes facing upwards. The lower sprayer arm can be removed by pressing on the side tabs and pulling it upwards.
Cleaning the sprayer arms
After cleaning the filters, replace the filter assembly and fix it in position correctly; this is essential for maintaining the efficient operation of the dishwasher.
Leaving the machine unused for extended periods
If the water hoses are new or have not been used for an extended period of time, let the water run to make sure it is clear and free of impurities before performing the necessary connections. If this precaution is not taken, the water inlet could become blocked and damage the dishwasher.
Cleaning the water inlet filter*
Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply and shut off the water tap. Leave the door of the appliance ajar.
When you return, run a wash cycle when the dishwasher is empty.
That should cover all your bases

Possibly blocked sump hose( bottom of drum) or pump not running,,,,drain water by putting outlet hose down too ground level, when water drained out put machine on spin. If machine spins ok, then you have a pump problem,,,,if water won't drain out when outlet hose at ground level then you have a blocked hose

Hi My Bosh dishwasher is model SMU 7056UC The water is not out of the bottom of the unit, when the cycle is complete it is still cloudy. What do we do? What part number do we need for the door seal...


Hi
either your dishwasher has a blocked filter or a blocked water outlet. Some dishwashers will reset if you can unblock the pump or outlet where it goes to waste. You will need to bail out the water first, then pull out all the filters and clean them and if you can check nothing is jambing the impeller in the pump. Normally toothpicks, chicken bones etc. Sometimes it is blocked where it connects to the s bend under the sink. Just undo it and check it is clear and then reconnect it.
If you clear it and it does not restart you will need a serviceman
cheers

Water not draining


Set the controls to off then power off at the mains for 30 mins and then power mains back on and run a drain program or a full wash program. If the water won’t drain away then the most likely problems are the door interlock switch is faulty, the drain water motor is faulty, there is a blockage in the drain outlet pipe or filter – this will need unblocking, there is a blockage in the water pump – this will need to be unblocked, the controller board is faulty – but this generally shows an error code. First turn off the mains power to the dishwasher then check the internal filter and screen and clean it thoroughly. Then check the waste water hose and any outlet valve and make sure that it is unblocked and free of any obstruction or waste material. If you have access to the water pump you can check that it is free of obstruction and is able to turn and that none of the impeller vanes have been damaged. Then if all this is OK then try turning on the mains power and running a hot wash cleaning cycle to flush out any remaining sludge / debris.

WATER DOESNT DRAIN


I had the same problem. I took out the filter and cleaned it, scooped out as much water as I could and poured some sink unblocker into the bottom of the washer, followed by some hot water. After leaving it a while I took the plastic mesh cover off, and removed and cleaned all the bits I could (will be different on different washers). Then I put it all back together and ran a quick wash, and it worked. I did a couple more washes with it empty in case there was any cleaner still lurking. Result - one unblocked (and sparkly clean!) dishwasher. Hope this helps!

Problem


Check the drain hose, and inspect the filter for any foreign object.


I report :"E20 means your fluff filter / waste pipe is getting blocked and the machine cannot pump out the water. Try unblocking the fluff filter first at the bottom of the machine. This should work, if the fault appears again though and the fluff filter is clean your waste pipe is blocked and you need to flush this through. Can you tell what I've just spent my weekend doing, I have had to get the most unbelievable amount of limescale out of these 2 areas but machine is now working fine again."

Zanussi zdt6252 stops on 'Rinse & Hold' midway thru Wash Cycle consistently...


The problem here is being caused by Blocked Filters in the Water suppoly In line/pipe. There are two(2) filters in this line, at the water connection point and at the Washer connect point(one at each end). If these filters become blocked, then the result will be a restricted water In-Flow and hence the Rinse & Hold Status. Disconnect the Water-Supply pipe and remove the plastic filters giving them a thorough cleaning before replacing them. All will be rectified by this action. Peter...
