Question about Danby DDW1805W Designer Series Free-Standing Dishwasher
I have a portable Danby Dishwasher DDW1805W. It worked great until someone accidentally put liquid dishwasher soap in it. It made lots of suds and overflowed, then it drained itself, but would not move beyond a drain cycle. I added fresh cold water and washed the inside several times so there are no more visible suds. The water pumps out every time, but the pump stays on even after the dishwasher is empty, regardless of where the dial is, or with moving the dial manually. It seems to be stuck in the "need to pump out" mode!
There might be water in the overflow sensor. I unloaded the dishwasher and lifted the front so the dishwasher rested on its back. There's a narrow gray tube that runs down from the bottom right of the door. The tube runs into a white piece of plastic with some wires coming out of it. There is a rubber plug that covers a nipple on the plastic. Pull the rubber plug off. Mine was quite tight. Tip the dishwasher back onto its casters to drain the water from the overflow. Check to see if the dishwasher functions normally, then put the rubber plug back on.

My Danby dishwasher repairman told me that there is a reset button somewhere inside the dishwasher (unavailable to user, supposed to be reset by repairman) that is triggered by too much detergent/sudsing. Apparently it is also triggered by turning the dial to try to bypass the dry cycle. I did the latter, since I wanted to save electricity and air-dry the dishes. Reset button went off. Am trying to figure out how to reset it myself. Anyone know? It took the last repairman (free, since it was still under warranty) only 5 minutes to reset it.
