Did you recently install a garbage disposal and not remove the knock out plug? If the dishwasher motor runs and it does not drain, you might have something blocking the drain hose or it is kinked.

Not finishing cycle


Is it draining out the water?? Dishwashers fill, spray, and drain more than several times during a cycle. After starting a cycle, let the unit fill, start spraying, and then cancel the cycle--listen for the drain pump activating and pumping out the water. If water is not being drained properly(within a certain time limit), the unit will error code out and stop. Also, make sure the filter is clear--if it gets clogged with "muck", enough water won't be sprayed onto the dishes properly, the pump will require too much energy to try to pump water, the control will sense this and shut down the unit to protect it.

We have a neff dishwasher and the pump is draining all the time (even when the door is open) but there is no water in the dishwasher. Is there a way to stop the pump and reset the setting for the flood...


Hello,
The water which has activated the antiflood device is actually underneath the appliance it is held in the sump tray and this has to be drained before the A.F.D.will cancel.You will have to remove the dishwasher to get at the underneath but when you have got rid of the water you will still have to trace what caused it.The seal on the circulation pump could be a suspect or a pin hole in the drain hose.

Hope this helps.

Dishwsher wont drain. never happened before. do not use dishwasher very often.


I would first check where the drain hose from the dishwasher connects to the drain stub under the sink. Remove the hose from under the sink and place it into a bucket. Close the dishwasher door and cancel the cycle to put the dishwasher in a drain cycle. Listen for the drain pump to activate. If water comes out of the hose check the stub where the hose connects under the sink with a screw driver to make sure the spout is clear of debris. If no water comes out of the hose, empty the dishwasher by hand using a plastic cup and when empty remove the hose at the pump under the dishwasher and check to see if there is any debris at this point. Make sure hose is clear from the dishwasher pump to the drain stub under the sink. You will need to place a towel or two on the floor as water left in the bottom of the dishwasher will come out when you remove the hoses. If still no water comes out you may have to disassemble the bump assembly. Not knowing what make and model you have I can't help you past this point.
I hope this is of some help.

You have to allow the drain cycle to finish completely, or find cancel drain dot points and press both at the same time, to reset program, open the door and close it to make sure the micro-switch activate properly

It is not draining, but the drain hose apprears unobstructed.


If your are attached to a disposal under your sink verify that the port is clear. Also the air vent above the sink may be clogged. If this is not the issue the pump may be obstructed with debris. If this is not the case the pump may be bad. If the water is in the bottom of the dishwasher press the cancel button for the cycle and see if the pump activates and drains.

Dishwasher does not fill with water


It sounds to me like the base safety float has been activated. This will cause the unit to cancel the program it is in and activate the drain pump, hence the "run" that you hear, but no water. You need to remove the lid and two side panels. If you see water inside the base, you know that the safety float switch has been activated. Remove plug from outlet and empty water from base (by tilting to left side and using sponge to syphon water) Restart unit and check where water is leaking from. Usually from a filling hose not correctly/tightly fitted; leaky inlet valve; leaky heater asembly. Hope this helps! C.
