Question about Dishwashers
two things to check
if drain is plumbed nito a spigot on the sink trap, check that ther spigot and drain hose are not blocked - this is very common
also see if you can get to the drain pump and check there is nothing jamming the impellor. also if you have access to a multimeter, check if the drain pump is powered up

Mine was doing exactly the same. I turned off power, held down the 2 black buttons on right, switched back on and the start button flashes intermittently. It then allowed me to change programs, just testing it now!! It started, this was more then it was doing!! lol

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya In Stock
This is a very common problem with these types of machines the water inlet valve has a solinoid for the hot and a solinoid for the cold that opens and closes the water on demand .
When they start to pulsate like this it is trying to close the valve but it cant this is normally due to the valve being clogged with debris or the valve is failing all together and simply needs to be replaced
So what i would do is first if you can look into the inlet valve with a flashlight and see ifit looks like it has stuff in it and if so clean it out and try it again if this doesnt work than you can assum that the valve will need to be replaced here is what the one of the valves should look like or close to it .
