Disassemble the drain and pump area, you will mostlikely find particulate matter restricting flow.

What is the float switch


I have no real experience with float switches on dishwashers, but have with some in humidifiers. It's a piece of styrofoam on a narrow metal stick that lifts when the appliance fills with water & lowers when the water empties. If this gets stuck on something, like a dishwasher rack, the unit won't fill or empty the water & the cycles won't work properly. Take a look & see if there is such a thing hung up somewhere in the dishwasher. If you can loosen it, your dishwasher should work again.

Hello,
After you the drain to discharge the remain water and the tub is visibly dry of water,then you open and load it do you see standing water after you have drained and know it was gone??
If that is the case what i believe your trouble is that where the dishwasher drain connects to disposer under the sink the drain hose is only leading from that nozzle downward,if that is so what is happening is the dishwasher is draining ok but backfilling whenever water runs through the sink. To fix that use a string on plastic zip tie and attach a portio of the drain hose so at one point the drain hose under the sink is higher that the nozzle and water in the sink will longer run into the hose and run upward since water is only going to drain down and wont ever rise on its own.The drain pump is powerful enough to push the drain water up that "HIGHLOOP" very easily.

Good luck i hope this has helped you to fix your dishwasher,
Gene

Miele Dishwasher G841 - Water not draining after wash cycle


If you suspect the dish washer, try discharging the drain in a bucket. After the drain cycle check the wash tub. If water is still left, you have to clean the drain filter attached to the bottom. Refer user guide.

The final drain end of the dish washer where you discharge, the fixing junction has to be cleaned, incase it is clogged.

After the wash cycle the unit will not empty, according to the feedback on this page they sujest a dishwater cleaner, can you tell me what type and where to obtain it.


I don't know that a dishwater cleaner will solve your problem. More than likely the pump is no onger functioning which is located on the bottom of the unit. When the dishwasher goes into the discharge cycle does it make a humming sound or does it do nothing. All pumps make sound when discharging the water from the basin. If there is no sound present then the pump is not functioning........if the pump is making a humming sound then it is locked up. Let me know please thanks.

Candy a8001 dishwasher


It sound that the problem is cause the water level switch. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube first from any obstruction, In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube. In case it doesn't react, you should replace it. Good luck !
