The machine is trying to over flow. There is a piece on the bottom of the inside that looks like a plastic cap turned upside down. Make sure it will move up and down. This is the float that turns the water off when the inside is full. If it can't rise, the water will continue to run until the machine goes into pump out.

When turning on dishwasher it just fills the base with water, tried manually draining and pressing reset buttons to no avail


Most dishwashers kick on a valve to fill with water.
There's a float in there somewhere that triggers the shut off to the filling water.
Once water reaches this cut off level the pump should be throwing water thru the wash arms.

If base isn't filling to capacity...Id look to the drain valve.
If it fills to capacity and stops...the pump may be out or something is obstructing it.

Hope this helps...

No water is coming in the dishwasher. I can hear the water running, but the water is not coming into the dishwasher


If you can hear the water running - but it's not filling, you most likely have a drain problem, which is being stuck open. Usually the motor kicks in and either pumps the water through the wash arms (during wash cycle) or through the drain (during drain cycle) the switch that/or flap could be stuck on the drain and it is pumping it out the drain all the time instead of the wash arms.

LG LDF6810 Dishwasher Starts filling with water then pumps water


Because you are not getting an error message, I agree that the controller card is malfunctioning. Almost everthing else would triger an error.
Recommend replacing the controller card.

Pump continuing to run -Asko D3100


Micro switch was actually faulty,moisture had entered the switch and caused internal tracking and shorting out the micro switch ,making the pump run continually as it thought it was still in flood mode.
Flood appears to have been caused by a pin hole in the water fill hose in the base of the dishwasher,causing water to spray on the micro switch and eventually biuld up in the base of the machine.

Bosch dishwasher


is all the water draining from the tub? if not the pressure switch will not reset and it will continue to try and clear it self...check drainage system.
2. pressure switch is jammed on..build up in the sensing chamber..common..or switch faulty...rarely
3. if water is in the bottom panel most have a flood switch which automatically operates the pump in case its over filling

It fills, but doesn't kick in to spray/wash


Main pump not running?...then it will either be the program controller or the main pump itself.....I would guess the pump first.
