Lights flashing and beeping on drain stage

HI there I am having a similar problem to that given elsewehere on this site, my roblem is my baumatic bdw5 starts its cycle fine then at the drain stage it stops, nd beeps with all lights flashing. I ahve tried cleaning the basket and I have also checked its draining at this tage by removing the drain hose and draining into a washing bowl, to whcih it is draining at a high speed so i deem this to be functioning correctly. I did notice the water is not hot however. Any idea what I should do next, or does this mean it is termianl?

When this has happened to us, it has meant a new control panel being fitted. It has been nothing to do with the draining process, just the electronics. The control panel isn't too expensive, but if you call a Baumatic engineer he will come out, do nothing and come out again and it will prob take about a month. I suggest you find a fixed price engineer who will perhaps be able to mend it on his first visit if you suggest the control panel. We have so many problems, we tend to buy in spares in advance so that they are in the house for the engineer and he can't fob us off with a return visit two weeks later. The parts that go are doorstraps, the control panel, the thermostat and the element. We haven't mended the control panel ourselves, but all other problems are pretty easy to do yourself.

    I lie, the control panel is £150! So make sure you chat with your engineer first as this part may be required and his visit on top of this will mean you could have bought a new, more efficient and less hassle Indesit built in dishwasher. Which is what I'll be doing.

Baumatic b15 drain pump will not stop.

Sounds like a dicky or jammed water level sensor. Get a qualified and licensed technician to check it out. The sensor and labour to replace it should only be around AU$50 or AU$60 dollars (excluding callout or pickup / delivery fees).
