Question about Dishwashers
The dishwasher is slowly filling up with water whilst it is turned off (overnight), we think through the hole (overflow?) on the back. Is this is to do with error 8?

SOURCE: Leak from dishwasher fill funnel
Hi . the air gap is required by law, to have it there.to stop water in the tub, to end up in your water system, which would never happen. try setting the pressure down, and use the dishwasher. it should work fine . turn down taps ,till it stops leaking . should be ok

SOURCE: Dishwasher does not fill with water when started. Problem began slowly with dishes not rinsing completely. Overfill float appears to work properly. Water fills pipe leading to fill solenoid but does n
I am almost certain that your problem is the fill solenoid.
If it does not work, there will be no water entering your machine.
I would either remove it and test it or just replace it at this point.

Remove the side and top panels of the machine.
On the left hand side you will see a clear plastic panel full of tubes and small tanks. This is the metering tank. At the bottom left of this unit, is a black pipe held on with a clip. There will almost definately be a blockage between this point and the sump. You can either buy and fit a new pipe or do what I did with mine, which was to remove it and clean it with hot water and a bottle brush. Seems to work like new again now.
You'll have to get the machine onto it's right side to remove the lower end of the black pipe from the sump. I drained as much excess water as possible out of the machine by sitting it on bricks, tilting it to the left and catching the water in a dish as it came out of the float hole. Some will also come out of the funny plastic tube which runs across the top of the machine - I carefully removed this first and caught this water in a pan.
Drain the waste pipe and disconnect the water supply.
Replace the right side casing on to protect the feed to the upper spray unit and put the machine on it's right hand side. Once the machine is on its right hand side, fin the water inlet valve and carefully remove its bracket from the chasis of the machine. You will need cross head and a torx screwdrivers - one for each screw. Once this is loosened, push some of the water supply pipe into the machine so you can move the bracket to the right a little to gaine access to the waste pipe. Remove this by removing the two gold coloured screws. This should now give you easy access to the sump end of the black pipe which lead from the metering tank. Remove this and clean it out. Pop all the parts back, stand you machine upright. Reconnect the watre supply and the waste and give it a rinse cycle to test - number 1 on the dial.
Hope this helps. My apologies if any of the take apart is not completely accurate - I don't want to turn my machine over again to check!

error 6 relates to a blocked drain pump. if the drain pump is working ok check if the tank level sensor is operating or if the air chamber in the wash tank is blocked.
error 21 relates to the drain pump being activated. normally related to error 6.
also check water inlet solenoid valve is working correctly. ie not blocked or passing.
all parts of the machine can be activated manually by entering service mode.
when machine is off press service button or switch on main pcb.
p00 appears. press and hold main wash button. --- appears. using the long and short wash buttons you can scroll through parts of the machine. displayed as a01 a02 a03 etc.drain pump is a12 solenoid valve is a13. these are activated by pressing the button. when activating the drain pump the display will count down. this number is the water level in the wash tank. if it's counting down the level sensor is ok.
hope this helps
