Question about Dishwashers
My Beko DWD8650w dishwasher is about 18 months old and when it comes to drain in a programme, the whole dishwasher shuts down, the lights go off and then it turns on again and tries again from the same place. It does this over and over again until you turn it off. Water is getting out in a gush, before it turns off. I don't know what to do to fix it. I don't think there is a blockage - as no water would come out and not in a gush at all, but it's definately struggling to empty the water and to continue. I don't know why it turns everything off and on again. Can anyone help?

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual
reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point
where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household
drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the
hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting
the dishwasher again.
Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.
Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Hi now F1 mean that your machine has triggered the flood alarm. there are two reasons this happens-- 1st-- there is a leak on one or both of your drawers. they leak because you might have a hole in one of the hoses or your lid is not shutting properly etc. the 2nd reason is that some water or soap suds escaped from the overflow. now i would like you to turn the machine off at the wall and leave it off for a couple of days to dry it out. then turn it on and use the lower drawer for one cycle. if it does not go F1 then try the top drawer for one cycle and see how it goes. if it continues to flash F1 then reply back for further help. good luck.

Dishwasher Trouble No Water entering Dishwasher

Had this problem and a forward tilt pulled it out of flood protection mode but I had to manually drain all the water out into a bowl first - just using the drain hose at the back. Then running a cycle with one of those Finish liquid dishwasher cleaners, letting the unit go through a normal cycle and drain into a washing-up bowl cured it.

Don't know if this will help, but my dishwasher has a "propeller" device above the top and bottom racks that spins while dispensing the water. If the dishes on either rack are stacked too high (i.e. if even one plate comes in contact with that propeller, keeping it from spinning properly) the dishwasher will go through its full cycle but will not use the soap (soap door will still be closed and soap packet still intact) and will not get the dishes clean.

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
