We think there is a blockage where it empties,the washer will not fill and it sounds like trying to pump water out but can"t.Took the pipe out where waste water comes out,tried blowing into it but it felt solid,tried sucking but to no avail.Can"t see how to clear blockage,feels like there is water trapped underneath,thanks,debbie

Re: tecnik dishwasher tkd795/3
Your machine has flooded and has trippedthe flood switch in the base of machine which turns on the pump to drain and that is the noise you hear
you will need to find cause of problem which is possible leak in machine

Check to see if water at the base of the washer has caused the "anti flood system" to trigger. The anti flood device is a polystireene float and micro switch that does trigger (and puts the washer in pump out mode) once water via leak or spill is detected. You can tilt the washer to 45 degrees and check if a small amount of water comes out of the bottom. As you indicate that the washer emptys after 5 sec I do think that the anti flood system is causing this.
C1 - Partially Blocked Drain - This error will occur when dishwasher was unable to pump out water in less than 95 seconds. Check drain line for debris and blockage. If clear, check for a restricted drain valve in the pump. Check the pressure sensor for correct operation as it sounds like it may be defective and thinks that the machine is still full of water after it has emptied.
if hot or both cold and hot fill try to switch the pipes
if not filling it may be a problem with program and or filter blocked
check also the pump
did you check the water is on as sometimes people forget to swith it on
if the motor has carbons as in the washing machine and if they are worn the water will not fill or better the motor is not going to turn and will not pump in water
as it is possible the pump may not work
this will make a sound like emptiness and with air in it
The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the
water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be
clogged. LE Code refers to a motor overload.Since the pump is blocked,the motor
becomes inefficient in working.Once you get the pump cleared from
blockages,I assure that you can get rid of these errors.Good luck with
the machine.Please do post the results and comments.
Does the water just disappear down the drain as fast as it fills, with no obvious pumping sounds?
If so, it might just be that the waste hose is routed wrong after it comes out the back of the dishwasher. It needs to loop up to somewhere near the top of the machine before coming back down to go into the drain. (These machines have no outlet valve - they rely on this high point in the hose to keep the water in, then use a pump to push it "over the hump" when they need to drain).
These arms spin based on water pressure generated from the washer itself.
Run the washer. As soon as the washer is full of water and the wash cycle starts, open the door and verify that you have at least a couple inches of water in the machine. If there is not enough water in the machine, the pump will not be able to provide pressure. If this is the case, the filling sensor is malfunctioning and will need to be checked.
There's a pump that provides water pressure. It's at the bottom of the machine beneath the lower rotating arm, probably beneath additional plastics. Remove these two items and verify that there is no debris blocking water from reaching the pump as if this is the case, water pressure cannot be generated.
Good luck... let me know what happens, and please rate accordingly.
