You most likely have some leaky seals where the tub and hoses meet..visual inspection will tell if that's the case..

I've got a Smeg DI612CA9 D/wahser. When I turn it on it pumps down as normal but won't stop pumpimg down even when the door is opened. If I leave it for +hrs it will allow me to start a wash cycle, but...

Hello Myles,

Your description suggests water has leaked (and is probably still leaking) into the bottom of the dishwasher under the wash compartment and is tripping the anti-flood protection system. The pump continuing to run even with the door open would confirms that the anti-floop protection has been activated, although the problem could be a fault with the float-switch for this safety feature.

I suspect you have a leak. When you leave the washer for a few hours a certain amount of this water will evaporate. This allows the float to fall deactivating the float-switch so you can start a wash cycle. However, as soon as you start a cycle, more water leaks into the bottom of the washer and the anti-flood protection system trips again.

You really need to have a look under the wash compartment and check for the presence of water there before you do anything else. If there is water in the bottom, pull the washer out and tilt it backwards about 10-15 degrees to allow any water to run out. You should then be able to use the washer again, but if there is a leak, the problem will return fairly quickly, so this really needs to be investigated fully.

If you pull the washer out to remove any water in the base, I'd suggest putting some old towels behind the washer before tilting it, to absorb any water that runs out. I also suggest getting someone to help you tilt the washer as they are heavy and the bottom can slide out when you tilt it.

You should also switch off the dishwasher and the power supply and close the water check valve ot disconnect the water supply hose before attempting this

Hope this helps.

Hi i have an hotpoint ultima its 2years old, it was working fine untill the council fitted new kitchens. then it started not draining right then when it was draining water was comming up the sink now no...

Sounds to me like therte is a problem with the draining of the washer due to the way it
is connected to your sink waste.
Get that sorted, and you will probably find that the other problem will disappear.

Wahser stopped after wash cycle, burning smell

Hi, it is possible that something got into the pump and stopped it from turning. Let the drain hose down so that it drains into a bucket or a floor drain if possible.
If water does not drain then it is deffinetly plugged. Once you get the water out of the washer, tip it against the wall and try to remove the pump off the motor. There are two clips that hold the pump on. You will also need to remove the hoses.
With the pump off, you can set the washer back down and try to run the spin cycle. If the motor runs, it must be the pump.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Water does not come out on Maytag washer.

Hi, If the wahser is agitating without water, then you will need to check the water level switch. With a model# I could give you more instruction on how to get to the switch. Have tried moving the level switch to high and low levels to see if it resets?

Kenmore washer 80 series

you need to check the lid switch, does it click. you can unplug and then remove the 2 screws to see it, if it looks like it is coming apart then the lid switch is bad. you can buy one for about $40 or so dollars. i am assuming it doesn't spin either.
