Question about Dishwashers
I set the dishwasher as normal (on super). i went back to check a little later and the ECO light was flashing. the machine was making a humming noise as it does when it is operational, however it wasnt operating. i tried switching off at the wall and then back on but it does the same thing. tried pushing the start/pause and the programme buttons simultaneously but nothing changed.
when i opened the door there was no water in there (luckily...) but there were soap suds in the bottom of the dishwasher.
If that fails then try emptying the over flow try found behind the kick panel below the door. 2 phillips screws will be found either side under plastic screw covers, behind kick panel you will find the cover for all internals remove a total of 6 screws from these covers, then with a torch you will see the internal workings of the machine. located at the bottom of it all is a small kidney shaped tray that may have some/alot of water. this is the over flow tray. empty by soaking up the liquid with a sponge. reassemble then try starting it.

Maybe! I pulled the dishwasher out, checked both hoses for blockages, hosed the inside out (particularly around the door seals). There is a plastic nozzle screwed into the roof inside. I took it out and it was clogged, so I cleaned all the slots out, put it back in and connected the dishwasher, and it works! I don't know if your problem is the same, but it's worth a try!

Worked as str82dabank explained. The tray has a float that engages a micro switch when the tray has filled with water. The switch overrides the pump cutout and it keeps cycling~ empty the dish pump stops.....sweet!
