Without any input from you to explain,
sounds like your drive motor (pump) is malfunctioning.
does it sit there for the length of cycle, then drain?
you say the motor doesn't work. replace it if it is deffective

Water empties immediately DW711


It will be a fault with the water level sensing circuit, try adjusting the inlet tap pressure as it is a time fill and if the pressure is too high or low it will pump out. Also a flood switch fault could cause the same issue.

Pump constantly on and won't fill


First check whether inlet water is OK. Just for a trial manually pour water in the wash chamber without overflowing, to avoid spillage on your floor.

Run a empty cycle. If it works & drains check the inlet flow up to the pump, inside the machine.

Hi, Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

Had blocked drain so water from sink backed up into d.washer. Drain clear but d.washer keeps emptying and won't fill


Make sure drain hose from dishwasher is higher than water inlet if not it will do just like a washing machine if the drain hose is lower than water level it will empty while filling.

Dish washer fills and then drians without washing


If you're sure it is heating the water, then it sounds like the wash motor/pump has failed. If you've worked on washing machines and/or dish washers before, this is potentialy a DIY job - the Haynes Dishwasher manual is very good, and parts can be found on the internet.

The reason for cheking it is actually heating the water is that the symptoms sound very similar to those of a failed heater = fill, pause, empty, stop usually accompanied wth an error code. Error code will be presented by a number of flashes of a lamp, or a number on a display panle depending whch machine you've got.

Water filling then emptying again right away


Take the cover off, as you face unit on right side follow the vacum hose to two presure switches. Tap on them lightly with a the handle of screw drive. fix my unit three months ago still working. The problem is the presure switch.
