Inlet/ drain light is flashing,I have cleaned out the basket, but it is still flashing and wont start. what do I need to do know?


Difficult to get help if you don't say what dishwasher it is.
Is it a Meile? This is a common condition foe Meile dishwashers and it usually means there is something blocking the outlet beyong the basket. I have a Meile and the first part of this fault fixing guide is normal.

The pump impeller may be unable to turn due to some muck blocking it. The first thing to do is remove the cover of the impeller. It is under the filter in the bottom the dishwasher. They have changed the design over the years, but there will be a plastic clip that you push or squeeze to allow you to slip the cover off. In the cover there is a ball bearing, you should be able to shake the cover and hear the ballbearing move. You can see it from the underside. If it doesn.t move freely this could be the problem, but this is unusual.
Next with the part you have removed out of the dishwasher, close the dishwasher on and turn it on for 5-10 seconds, this is to try and clear the obstruction. Next open the dishwasher again and put your finger down the opening the cover you removed from the impeller and see if the impeller moves freely. If it does, put everything back together and see how it goes. If it still will not start it is likely to be a blockage in the outlet pipe.

First remove the impeller cover again, this to rellease any pressure in the outlet hose so water doesn't gush out quite as much when you do the next bit. Get a large bucket or two ready and with the machine off loosen the clamp on the outlet hose where it joins the s-bend at your sink and remove the pipe from the sink. Here is where you need the bucket or maybe two. Of course if it is blocked you don't need the bucket yet. Check the pipe and the nipple on the s-bend to see if there is a blockage and remove it, then replace and tighten the clamp. The outlet may be blocked by solidified fat or something else, this happens if fat it emptied down the sink and it doesn't take much. When the fat hits the cold water in the s-bend it solidifies straight away and if it gets in the dishwasher pipe it blocks it. A very common issue with all dishwashers and people who pour fat down the sink.

Hope this is all it is, but possibly the pump or something else is cactus.

What can cause and lg dishwasher to not fill water and stop and show le code


Please try the plain VINEGAR in the bottom of your dishwasher. It cleans out the pipes. When you start the machine it automatically starts to drain whatever water has been left from previous cycle. When this cannot happen, due to blocked outlet pipe, it will not precede with the wash cycle. Adding the vinegar, leaving it a few hours, or overnight (hey, I left it for a week one of those times!), it is enough to liquify any heavy fats in that pipe...enough to start the cycle and the normal draining gets reinstated.Hope this helps you, it is such a pain to go & choose another dishwasher to fit into the space allowed & that has all the functions you need. This 'fix' cures all my dishwasher blues! Havagreatday!

Dishwasher pump runs continuously. Wont do anything else


The outlet pump or pipe have got blocked (very common) and water has overflowed into the base.
This has activated a float switch to tell machine to pump out all time.
You need to remove the plinth of appliance and remove with sponge or syringe the water and clear outlet blockage and all will be fine

Why wont my dishwasher empty,it goes through all the program but just wont empty,it was fine when we were using it before we moved.


The drain pump motor is in line with the outlet pipe. First check if the outlet pipe is not blocked or obstructed. The motor can be tested by removing the 2 electrical push on connectors and connecting mains supply to the 2 terminals. If the motor spinns it indicates that the motor is OK and that the fault is then with the electronic switching circuit (not normaly a home repair). If the motor does not spin it indicates that the motor is open circuit and needs replacing. (easy job). You can also spin the motor small cooling fan by hand just to determine if it runs freely like it should and is not obstructed by dirt inside the water channel of the pump.

Dishwasher runs but will not drain


sounds like the outlet pump is blocked for this you need to power off the appliance and unplug either remove one side of the dishwasher or tilt back and see if you can get under where the outlet pipe comes from you will see a white pump there should be a metal screwclip holding the outlet hose onto the pump remove this then look inside the hole to check for the blockage normaly rice or fat if you can remove it with a coathanger then all is good if not your going to have to remove the pump and take the side off 3 screws be carefull of the rubber seal then give it a good clean also check the feeder pipe to the pump for any blockage. Also after this remove the filter inside the dishwasher and check there is nothing blocking the small hole to the outlet pump.

Whirlpool Dishwasher machine (Mod. ADG 8970/1) wont start. Water is taken in. After several attempts to start an error code "F4" appeared.


Hello Sir,
This error code, " F4 " comes only when the waste outlet is totally clogged with waste and blocked. Try to dismantle the machine and locate the Waste outlet pipe and thoroughly clean it. This will reset the error which is caused.

Thank you Sir, 
Have a nice day.

Backup of foul smelling water into the dishwasher


Outlet pipe is partially or completely blocked.

Use a dishwasher cleaner in it, but before you even do that, remove outlet pipe from waste pipe - and clear all the gunk out you can.

I suggest a bucket with disinfectant and washing powder to dissolve the grease.

You may need a drain cleaner down the waste pipe too - & flush with hot water and washing powder.
