I may have had the same problem. At the end of a normal wash cycle the pump would stay on for hours or even days - I would have to power off, and then keepp trying to power on until it had eventually stopped. The pump operates even with the door open.

Problem is caused by a small float which senses the water level in the dishwasher, floating up and operating a microswitch, which turns on the pump to pump the water out. Obviously, if the dishwashe is filling up for some reason, you want the pump to operate even if the door is open. The float is in a small chamber - a very snug fit, with a hole in the bottom which is connected to the main pipework in the machine. There is another chamber next to the flot chamber which is also connected to the pipework. When the water level rises too high, water from this second chamber overflows into the flot chamber, raising the float and operating the pump. The water level then drops as the water is pumped out. The water level in the float chamber should also drop, but didn't on my dishwasher because the hole in the bottom was blocked (with old soap suds and grime I assume). Hence the pump just stays on. I assume in my case, the water flowed out very slowly, and eventually the pump stopped.

To fix it, removed the left hand side panel (2 screws on the front door lip. The back of the panel is just hooked on some raised bits of plastic). This exposes all the pipework, and the red float can be seen in it's chamber. I removed an extra couple of bits of plastic near the float chamber whilst I tried to work out what to do - but this may not be necessary. You will have to try for yourself. I couldn't get access to the hole to poke something in to unblock it, so I poured sink and drain cleaner into the flot chamber, topping up as it drained away, leaving it for approx. 15 mins. I think thick bleach would also work. Note: this cleaner won't be very good for any metal inside the dishwasher, so run 1 or 2 wash cycles to clean it out.

Maybe the dishwasher cleaner advertised on tv would have worked i.e. the stuff you put in the dishwasher on an emty cycle to clean out all the internals. I haven't used it, but it would be easier than taking the dishwasher to pieces.

Hope this helps

I solved the same problem where pump is going with door open, this was after reading johhny boy 1's advice ,
1, remove all trays inside,
2. clean filter area with sponge
3. poor jug of water into pump and if it is pumped away you have the same problem as me.
4 with pump filter/ mesh still out, pour a cup of house hold bleach into pump tray and top this up with a litre of cold water . turn pump on to empty.
5. repeat this 4 or five times
6 . pour a cup of bleach and this time top up with a kettle of hot water and pump away (turn machine on), the turn off.
7. leave for 5 mins then turn machine on and bang inside left wall with hand and when float drops the pump will stop.
8. flush washer with hot wash.

worked for me without having to strip down machine.

hope this helped , thanks johhny boy!

It's likely a problem in the controller. A repairman is your best option. If you're comfortable with electrical troubleshooting and appliance disassembly, locate the schematic and troubleshoot the problem yourself.

Good luck.

I called my technician with the same problem. He said he had a busy day, and suggested to do the following:
Tilt the dishwasher, and let all the water in the plinth pour out.

After doing so the machine started working again.

I had water coming in from the sink, because of a clogged pipe.

According to my technician, if you have water in the plinth, you might have a leak somewhere, so the non stop working pump is just a sympthom of the problem !!

Good luck !

My LG washer is stuck and won't drain so I can't open the door to fix the problem which I suspect is it is overloaded. What do I do?


Hi
Turn OFF the main power supply to the machine .After 7 minutes the door will get unlocked irrespective of level of water in the tub. As long the power is going to the machine the lock will not open.

Bosch WFF 2001 has finished a wash cycle but the water will not drain or spin away, cannot open the door. There is no apparent filter trap to empty, help!


Do the following.

  1. Switch off the machine, unplug or disconnect the mains power to the machine and turn off the water supply to the machine.
  2. Remove the access panel on the lower right front of the machine.
3. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that depending on the machine type you may get a lot of water coming out of the filter when you remove it if the machine has not drained successfully. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood.
4. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
5. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
6. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
7. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
8. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
9. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
10. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
11. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
12. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.

Same problem


Power it off at the mains for 60 mins and then rety. If it still does the same then call in a repair man as it is most likely thatthe main controller board is faulty and needs replacing.

GU1200 will not drain. Seems to have stopped mid-cycle. Pressed can cancel button , now it just blinks.


Does this model have a rotary control? If it does switch the unit off at the mains and move the controller to the end position and then switch back on. If the pump is working it should then start the pump to drain the machine.

If it doesn't have a rotary control just switch off and leave for a few minutes. When you switch back on it should then pump the water out.

If the pump isn't working you should be able to open the door with the power off. Dishwashers don't fill up with water so water won't leak out. Clean the filters and look for something blocking the outlet.

F2 error


This problem is usually caused by what we professional appliantologists call, "panties in the drain pump." 'Course, that's just generic talk for something ain't opos'd to be there. Your hit list:

- Clean out the drain pump catchment.

- Pull the suction boot off the drain pump, clean out any gookus.

- Blow through the drain hose starting from the connection at the pump.

- If all else checks out, replace the pump.





The Duet hides the pump/filter access behind the lower panel. Most LG, Miele and ASKO washers have it right up front for easy access. I guess keeping such a base element out of view helps sales.

Baby socks make me a tidy sum. They can go places big socks can only dream about. Get yourself a lingerie bag for them and other small items you wish to wash if you don't feel like repeating this episode.
Long Drain error code.
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and “F/02” is flashed.
Press, PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the "F2 error code" will be displayed.
Potential Causes:
(1) Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
(2) Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
(3) Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump

Dishwasher not pumping water


Hi, I have an ASKO 1606 and it stopped turning on. This happened after the sink drain got blocked. All that would happen when switched on was the sound of the pump trying to pump water out. I opened up the panel on the back and found the tray inside full of water. As I started scooping the water out I heard what sounded like a switch clicking on and off. I think there must be a safety float switch or something. Once the water in the tray was cleared everything worked fine again. No more hand washing dishes!! WOOHOO
