yes the drain pump should start at this point so I would suspect a faulty drain pump,But try a reset first push and hold power button until lights reset then try a cycle if this fails to fix problem then I would suspect the drain pump.adrian,,,,,
Your owners manual or a call to Viking should help you decode the blinking panel lights. They are not random and are a desperate cry for help from the machine.
It has been my experience (YMMV) that a common dishwasher problem in older machines is accumulated grunge (the technical term) in the water level sensor. In many cases the sensor lives in a plastic container on the side of the DW and although the designers try hard to avoid contamination, the container eventually loads up and intermittently jams the float.
Before I pulled the unit however, I'd check the bottom of the wash cabinet for contaminants. There may be an screen (under a cover plate) that has clogged.
Your situation sounds a bit different, since my Samsung did not pump out water, it just stopped and flashed a code, but who knows? Go for the low-hanging, common issues first.
You either have a blocked drain line drain pump, or water is in the base pan. behind the toe kick is a base pan that will catch water if the flood switch is activated this condition will occur. I know this dishwasher very well can help you fix it yourself.
This is probably okay, you have clock like motions running the motor electric contacts. There needs to be a delay between some cycles or shorting will occur. The motor on some designs, for example. is reversed to pump out water. to have this work long term, a delay is inherent and not a concern.
Look at the end of the wash and no water in the bottom, it is OK. The water is pumped out through the pump. Hence you would have found the water mid way. Pump will start after the wash cycle is fully finished it's function or as per the float level!
I have the same thing, unit pump keeps running, when I pulled it from under the cabinet, if you tilt it back a little it stops, as soon as you lower it back down the pump starts to run again. Getting code as too much water in the tank even though it is empty. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
If I'm not mistaken, these dishwashers are built by Asko for Viking. If thats the case then you probably have a bad circulation pump. Under Asko's warranty (not sure if Viking is the same) these pumps are covered parts and labor for 3 years from installation date, and 5 years for the part only. The pump is accesed from the back of the machine,so you have to pull out the dishwasher. Then you remove the lower plate in the rear and the motor at the very back center is the pump. You remove it by turning it about a 1/4 turn either clockwise or counter clockwise, depending on the style, then place the new one in and turn it to lock it in place, being careful that the sealing oring stays in place or youll get a leak. The part will probably cost you around $150 unless viking marks theirs up more than Asko. Good Luck!
