Question about Dishwashers
SOURCE: Dishwasher stuck on "drain"
not easy to fix - it has a leak. the tray at the base is full of water which ooperates a float which switches drain pump on. remove front panel at bottom front and mop out water or tilt backwards 45deg and water will run out. leak is usually main pump

We eventually, after several days of these problems, called a technician. It took him a couple of days to come round. Then when he did - he switched it on and absolutely no problem. His explanation was that if you interrupt the cycle whilst on a hot cycle, it sometimes thinks it's in flood mode. If you leave it off for a couple of days - it's OK.
1) Try not to interrupt hot cycle
2) If the pump continues to run - switch it off and wash dishes manually for 2 or 3 days.
Hope this helps others.

The drain valve is stuck open. This is electrically operated, but may have some debris inhibiting movement. If you can physically move it (with the power off) this should repair the problem.

The unit has a leak causing floor sensor activated.
1- Unplug power cord.
2- Pull oull half way the drawer so an access from the bottom left could be obtained.
3- Use Paper towel or small towel to dry out the water on the bottom housing.
4- Wait for 48 hour so the sensor can be dry out.
Plug in the power cord. The unit will act as normal.
Your problem is solved.
However you can't operate since you know you have a leak problem. Let me know how it in progress and you decide to call service to fix it or I can guide you to fix it. Good luck.

SOURCE: Dishwasher pump keeps running
This is caused by a water leak into the base pan,it will trigger the anti flood and the machine will continously drain out even with the door open,you need to establish what is leaking,if you leave the appliance standing for a few days it will start again as the water will evaporate however if the fault returns you will definetly have aleak on the appliance which will require further investigation.

Tips for a great answer:
It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. Also after the program is completing to the final stage the drain vavle/pump must work and cut off If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve/drain pump must be checked or the fault relates to the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
