I am assuming you have a Fisher Paykel or similar double drawer dishwasher. Based on your symptoms it is very likely there is dirt or some blockage in the drain sump which needs to be cleared. If you have followed the normal procedure of cleaning filters etc, and there is no difference then you will have to take a thin rigid metal wire and run it through the channel between the rotor cavity and the drain sump. There could be a seed or a bone chip sitting there. I am assuming the pump rotor runs normal and you can hear water flow through the drain hose into outlet drain. Please provide make and model number of dishwasher for help with better diagnostic.
I had a problem on my Tassimo T65 where water was entering the bottom drip tray through the small hole at the rear. It seems many people have this problem but after researching on line there is little help although I found on this sit how to take the coffee maker apart and from that thread the possible cause for my own issue.
So if your machine seems to be leaking from the small drain hole to the rear of the drip tray try this before you think it is either in need of specialist repair by Bosch at a cost almost the same as a new machine or before you start to take it apart and have a look yourself.
CAUSE - The water is coming from the drain hole because the pressure valve at the top of the machine is blocked with calcium deposits through prolonged use without descaling sufficiently.
SOLUTION - Purchase a good quality coffee machine descaler. Sit the whole coffee machine in a tray or large oven tray so you can collect the overflowing descaler throughout the process, it's not economical to waste this solution. Remember to clean down and dry the coffee maker each time.
Use at least half strength descaler do not water it down more than 1:1
Follow the descaling process by inserting the yellow disc and holding the start button down for 3 seconds.
Repeat this process several times, recovering the fluid leaking in to the tray and cup or container. If you start to see small lumps being dispelled in to the cup try to remove these for further descaling.
After several cycles you should notice that the leaking or flow of water from the bottom drain hole becomes less until it stops. To force the dissolving scale out of the pressure valve try running the normal clean cycle but with the descaling solution, the flow is longer and will help flush the restriction.
After a number of descaling and clean cycles the leak or flow from the drain hole will have stopped, if not continue till it does.
Note: I ran cycles for about 2 hours with periods of rest to allow the solution to do its work.
Now the leak or flow has stopped clean out the reservoir and replace with clean water and run at least 4 clean and rinse cycles.
i hope this works for you and now enjoy your coffee.
First of all - Dip-it is a detergent to remove rancid oils from coffee cups and coffee makers. That is not the same thing as a decalcifier or descaler. Dip-it was never meant to go through your boiler and pump and valves and all the other parts inside your Gaggia.
I'm quite sure that if you read the Gaggia manual it will tell you to use a special descaler such as Dezcal or Durgol.
Some people say use white vinegar - the manual specifically says not to use vinegar.
The machine is pretty expensive - it's worth buying the right product to descale it.
The manual should walk you through the steps to descale which will clear the error message once all the steps have been completed. I don't own that specific model, but typically you add the dezcal powder to very warm water in the water tank. Then start the descale process which will prompt you to open the steam valve and pump some water through the steam valve (into a container you place under the steam wand to catch it). Typically it will cycle a little water then pause for several minutes while the descaler disolves the calcium build up in the boiler - then it will pump a little more though and then wait etc. etc. Depending on your machine it may pump water out the coffee spout as well as out the steam wand. If so, the machine should prompt you to tell you to open and close the steam valve.
After it has run all the chemical through the machine (usually after it has emptied the tank) it should then prompt you to rinse. You remove the tank and wash it out and fill it with clean drinking water and then let the machine continue on the rinse cycle which will pump all the clean water through the unit. So you need to be on hand to catch all that water and dump it in the sink. When you are all done, run a few blank shots and make sure the water tastes like clean drinking water. The descaler is mostly citrix acid (like lemon juice) so if the water tastes sour like lemons then it isn't completly rinsed yet and you may want to pump more fresh water through the machine (pull blank shots or pump hot water through the steam wand) until it is fully rinsed.
Once the machine completes the rinse cycle it should stop prompting you that you need to descale.
I had this problem too. I was beside myself wondering what to do. I took the machine apart but there was nothing wrong. It was stuck in an infinite descale cycle. The 5 green buttons never blinked to say it was done. What finally fixed it was to close the steamer valve to where water was being being restricted from the steamer wand but still a little water was spurting out. It finally quit emitting water and the 5 lights blinked and the infinite descale cycle completed. This model espresso maker was a lemon and been nothing but problems. jeff
Make sure you aren't selecting the eco setting to conserve power. Running a dishwasher in that mode disables the heating element that dries the dishes at the end of a cycle. Here a few ideas you can try,... with an empty dishwasher.. start a cycle and make sure you do not use that ECO mode if it has that feature.. then stop the dishwasher when it near the end of the cycle and open the door ./.. check to see if the water has been drained and that the heater element is on and hot. If there is a high volume of water in the bottom of the dishwasher, make sure the darin filter screen is clean and not restricting water flow... If that is clean.. and you have a lot of water in the bottom pan, you could have a problem with the pump, a hose in line with the pump or your house drain system is restrictive.. Good luck... and Hope this helps you..
your pump is clogged with matt mud...
remove the back panel
the pump will be right on the left

reassemble your done
There is no solution. I have three kitchenaid ice makers and they do not work. The 18inch was under warranty. I had it serviced every friday until warranty ran out. I put an inline filter on the machine and it ran like a charm for three months, which is a first. It's out again! The two 15 inch same thing... inline filter and it worked for a month. Yes I have cleaned the machine over and over with appropriate products. It will turn on water fills but it appears as though the pump is not moving the water. Either way the machine worked correctly for two years only for the 15 inch and for the 18 inch one year.
The Coffee Maker can be descaled using
a packaged descaling agent or vinegar.
Always mix the descaling solution using
• When using a descaling agent, follow
the directions on the package for the
recommended amounts of descaling
agent and water to use.
• When using vinegar, fill the carafe with
a solution consisting of 1⁄2 vinegar and
1. Before descaling, always remove the
water filter (see “Installing the Ion-
Exchange Water Filter” on page 7) and
make sure the brew basket contains
no coffee or coffee filters.
2. Run the Coffee Maker through a
complete brewing cycle using a full
carafe of the descaling solution.
3. If the cleaning needed indicator lights
after the brewing cycle is complete,
repeat Step 2 using fresh descaling
solution. Keep repeating Step 2 until
the cleaning needed indicator no
longer lights after brewing.
4. Rinse the Coffee Maker by running
it through two brewing cycles using a
full carafe of fresh, cool water
5. Wash the brew basket in hot, soapy
water and rinse with hot water. This
part can also be washed in the upper
rack of the dishwasher.
6. Reinstall or replace the water filter.
Replace the filter every three months
under normal usage, or more often
with heavy use.
The machine is still stuck in the descaling cycle. You must open the steam valve and let all the liquid drain from the tank. This takes approx. 45 min. because it comes out intermittenly. After this is complete all the front buttons will flash. Close the steam valve, rinse the tank, then fill it with fresh water. Open the valve again and let all the water drain from the tank again. This time it will only take a couple of minutes. After it has completed close the valve and the machine will return to normal operation.
