Hello ,
You may need to call in a plumber the b/f said there might be a blockage in the outlet pipe, it maybe that it isn't displacing water via the outlet, try a dose of Drano check first that it is safe to do so its pretty corrosive before calling in the plumber.

Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

Dishwasher starts then pauses and drains.


Fixed! I had the issue where the cycle would start, the KUDS30IXBL8 would hum 4-5 times and then drain. Plastic folk pieces jammed in the disposer. These instructions took a few minutes (only 5 screws and a couple clips) to figure out how to take it apart, and it only took 60 seconds to put back together.

Dishwasher doesn't drain after washing


Try to see if you hear a slight hum noise from the electric motor under the bottom. The noise will not last for long. This is the motor trying to start in the reverse direction. For the unit to drain the motor must run in the opposite direction so it can actually wash dishes well in on direction and not run in the other. After power has been removed (and maybe water too) get under unit and see if motor will turn in both directions. If it does, then the nearby start capacitor needs replacing or the motor is defective. A bad motor will not hum for long before the "heat trip" safety device will cut it out and it will then have to cool off before more test or done

Dishlex global 300. ECO light flashing.


if that fails then try emptying the over flow try found behind the kick panel below the door. 2 phillips screws will be found either side under plastic screw covers, behind kick panel you will find the cover for all internals remove a total of 6 screws from these covers, then with a torch you will see the internal workings of the machine. located at the bottom of it all is a small kidney shaped tray that may have some/alot of water. this is the over flow tray. empty by soaking up the liquid with a sponge. reassemble then try starting it.

Dishlex Global 2000 starts makes a constant noise tries to start up then stops. Bit of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. Lights flash but does nothing


have you checked that your outlet pipe is not blocked. if it is blocked machines are designed to stop to prevent flooding. this may explain why there is water in bottom

Hello,
I had this problem and reset the dishwasher to solve. Turn off dishwasher for at least 20 seconds, turn on while pressing eco button and wait for about 30 seconds. Should hear beeps.
