SOURCE: Leaking door (Running Water)
being in the uk i dont know this appliance, but the fault is probably that it is overfilling caused by crap in the airchamber or the hose leading to the pressure stat blocked or a split in this hose

Although I previously posted with the same problem of a film on the dishes after cleaning, I did find a section in the owner's manual which solved my problem. Lift up the rinse aid cap on the inside door - the factory setting is on "4". The rinse aid works in conjunction with your local water, which has variations in it's hardness or softness. When your dishes are streaky, lower the rinse aid setting to 1 or 2. If your dishes are spotted, raise the rinse aid setting higher.

You can find them on a label on the tub wall just inside the door. However 99% of all DW are a standard size and the difference is made up by adjustments of the threaded leveling /adjustment legs.
Standard size is 24" x 32-36"...you can take a tape measure and measure from the floor to the bottom of the countertop it is to be installed under...and then measure across the front of the DW. you should find my measurements to be within this range unless it is a custom unit.
Hope this helps. ...good luck and good day...The Fang

We have one too and it cleans the dishes really nicely. However, you have to be sure you look after the filter screen. Hard water could also be a problem if the detergent you use does not have an additive in it and you should always use a rinse agent (pour it into the reservoir in the front).
In order most likely and easiest first: 1) Be sure nothing you put in the racks goes below the level of the rack. If it does it will block the spray arm from turning and you will get semi-cleaned dishes and soap streaks as you describe. My sister had the same problem and swore nothing interfered with the arm, but the way she loaded some things permitted them to move during the first few revolutions of the rm and stopped it. Check to see if the arm rotates freely for about two rotations after a load is finished and the conditions you describe appear. 2) Check the filter screen located in the bottom of each drawer under the silverware holder. You have to lift the hinged portion of the rack to get to it. Clean it well and reinstall it. It should be checked every three loads, or once a week at least. 3) Then check the holes in the spray arm to be sure they are open. If plugged clean them out carefully. 4) Then if that does not work, dissamble the arm, and motor (covered in the instructions or available on line, and be sure nothing is plugged in those areas. 5) Cll a repair man who really knows the unit - not all do and they can do more harm than good.
The unit will clean very well. Good luck!

Your dishwasher was manufactured in November of 1986. Uh...its actually 23 years old, which could be why I had a hard time locating a manual for you. I was able to find a manual at the following link:
There's an Owner's Manual and Installation guide listed.
If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
