Question about Dishwashers

Hotpoint ultima DF32

Doesn't drain!
fills ok, washes ok, when opened water fills the base of the machine, obviously not draining as it should. Interior filter is clear - we've bailed out to check. No obvious blockage.
Is it repairable as diy?
is it worth repairing?
what's the likely cost for a call out? and
Does anyone know someone in the Cambridge area they could recommend?

WF860 drum filling with water

Normally I would think that the problem is with the drain system (faulty pump or clogged lines), but you told me that also "When the washing machine is not bein.g used the drum slowly starts to fill with water!!" therefor I think it can be a dafective inlet valve or a faulty control assembly.
In either case, you will need a technician to fix this.

Your exit hose behind the machine has to go over a certain height before it goes into your wall standpipe or sink. The height is marfked behind your machine, approx 3 feet above ground level. The hose should put about 3 or 4 inches into the standpipe, & not fitted airtight. Post back later if the code stil comes up...........

Hotpoint Ultima dishwasher DF32

you are probably plumbed in under the sink for the drain hose. a common problem is water coming back down the drain hose when you empty the sink. if so take the drain hose up as far as possible in a swan neck. other possibility is a leaking fill valve
