Sounds like you either have a bosch and or a LG. is this right? if so you probably have a leak under the dishwasher. and that is why it keeps draining. it is a feature designed so it doesn't flood your floor. you can take the kick panel off and stick your hand in the pan to feel for moisture.

Dishwasher not working.... when i close the dishwasher and turn it on i can not hear any water running and there is a pool of water at the bottom that will not drain


Hello, How long has your dishwasher been do this? Have you washed dish's in it? Also, these German made dishwasher run on less than 2 1/2 gallons of water. These German manufactured dishwasher machines run really quite. Because of the German water conservancies laws. They limit the amount of water dishwasher and washing machine can use. Also, there is no storage hot water system in there homes, it on demand hot water. You can't hear the motor running and about the only thing one can hear is maybe the water washing the dishes.


Now, the water at the bottom of the dishwasher, if the drain isn't connected up under is the sink drain and trap area or the garbage disposable in the sink. but some place lower on the drain pipe. You will not have a spiffing effect on the the bottom of the dishwasher, it the same with washing machines. One the discharge pump starts sucking air, it will not drain the dishwasher. The siffen effect works if the water is below the outlet for the drain. Example: Home owner have the new washing running and continue fill with water. Why, because the drain pipe end is below the the bottom of the washing machine tub. It fill up with water and siffen action continues emptying the tube will it still filling. One heck of a water bill.

Noise Drain Motor? No Cloged


The Bosch units do have a little noisier drain pump than most other units, so if you don't hear a grinding sound it probably isn't something you would worry about, BUT if it is grinding, then it is a sign that either something got sucked into the pump or that the pump is starting to fail.

Sound like you might have a fallty drain pump. When you turn the power off and started again, did you hear noise of pump draining the leftover water. If not , then you have a pump problem. Need a service man. Good luck !

Bosch SGS43C12 dishwasher fills with water as normal at start of programme, then you can hear a quiet 'click click' normally the cycle would start, but nothing happens. I can press reset and it drains the...


Where does the clicking sound seem to be coming from? Start the machine and when it's filled with water, try to identify where the clicking noise is emanating from. I suggest putting you ear next to the programme selector and start/stop switch and see if you can hear it more loudly/clearly.

Sounds like a faulty control module to me. Try the above and report back . . .

Our Indesit dishwasher D1620 is not draining at the end of the programme. I have checked the hose its not kinked and there is nothing blocking the drain point. Any ideas what we can do?


Hello,
When you put the dishwasher on for a new cycle you should hear the drain pump operating for a short while before it allows any water to enter the machine.If all you can hear is a buzzing noise then it is probable that something is stuck in the drain pump or the pump is faulty.If this is the case then you will need to access the drain pump through the removal of the side panel.

Hope this helped.
