It goes through the cycle and washes but sometimes it makes a strange clanging sound as though something is stuck.
When the machine usually bleeps 3 times to say finished, it is now bleeping constantly until you open the door. Then when you open the door it is full of water at the bottom as though it is not emptying.
We have manged to fish out 2 pieces of glass thinking they were causing a blockage but it is still not emptying?
Call a pro before you possibly cause damage to unit. the clanging you hear is probably something giving way when the drain pump kicks in and cannot turn. if your mechanicly adept and somewhat adventerous you may try to disassemble the pump and clear it yourself , but i advise against it.

When does it start to leak? I mean how much water goes in before the leak starts. I have a problem every once in awhile with mine leaking when the float in the bottom of the washer gets stuck and does not shut off the water. The way to check this is to locate the float, it is near the front left side, and push it up and down a few times to make sure it is not stuck. Try the washer again. If that is not the problem u could have a leak from the drain under the dishwasher. Sometimes the plastic can crack and cause a leak. Also check the discharge line and make sure it is not the problem.
Could be bearings or something caught inside the impellar. If you take the wash arms off and run a cycle with water, it will "sometimes" blow out anything in the impellar. Undercounter machines are usually problematic - recommend avoiding them when possible.
I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife alsocomplained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried invain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them inminutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if theheating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I wouldbuy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it isworking... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
Dishwasher Spray Arms not Spinning
your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.
there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)
first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.
the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..
have you lowered the top basket into the lower position? if so the spray arm will knock the cutlery /plates. it sounds as though it is a spray arm problem. remove them and put it in wash to see if the noise goes. if not there may be an obstruction in the wash pump, this is a stripdown job then.
Crawlmom, it sounds like your door latch assy. and switches are not making properly sometime during the wash. Therefore the two dashes. You want to make sure that the dishwasher is level and securely mounted. Another thing is, on this model, if a key pad is stuck, the dishwasher will stop and flash the stuck key. Im not sure where the red light is coming from. Without being there, I'm leaning on the door switch assy. Check this out first and post back. Catriver.
