Dishwasher fills up then hums likes its going through cycle but nothing gets washed when the cycle ends it drains and the heat comes on.


The simple solution is that something inside the dishwasher is keeping the sprayers from spinning and spraying water. Look closely inside to see if there is a pan or part of the rack sticking up or down and getting in the way of the spray parts.

Hi - my Viking dishwasher has developed a problem where the pump runs continuously, whether the power switch is ON or OFF. After the power is turned ON, the troubleshooting guide indicates that there is...


if you open the kick plate, you'll see the pan below the motor and check for leaks. The leaks will trigger the sensor to pump water out. Once you dry out the pan, the pump motor will stop and you should be able to reset the program.

Cycle just continues with the pot symbol blinking


disconnect the hose and run it into a bucket, is it pumping freely?.

did you check the trap for a blockage?

You may have a leak in the pump housing area below the unit, this would cause the drain pump to run continually.

Miele Dishwasher Problem


This just happened to me (my hands are still dripping from cleaning out the water at the bottom of the tub). Frustrated because I had cleaned the filters, bailed out the water with a cup, yet the light was still flashing. I finally followed the troubleshooting guide in the operating manual and held down the start/stop button for 5 seconds, while the machine was on, which seemed to reset everything. Works fine now.

Just click the handle to start the cycle and let drain.  Then just before it starts, turn it off.

Bosch dishwasher model shu3300


Your machine has detected a "flood" condition and has defaulted to its flood mode. Meaning that only the drain pump will work until the flood is fixed.

Bosch D/W's are pretty slick, the entire unit is sitting inside a drain pan that's designed to catch an overflow (flood) keeping the water off of your floor. This overflow pan has a Styrofoam float that rises with the flood and trips the "flood mode". The water in the pan has to be removed allowing the float to drop back down before you can use your dishwasher again.

There are 2 ways to do this... the easy way and the hard way.

1.) Easy way---> Wait a few days. The water will eventually evaporate out of the drain pan all by itself. Takes longer than the hard way, but no tools are involved.

2.) Hard way---> (not actually "hard") TURN POWER OFF TO THE DISHWASHER! Remove the lower kick panels (below the door). Remove the 2 screws holding the water valve in place, and push the valve up as far as you can. Now use a "Shop-Vac" with a long crevice tool attachment. Stick the crevice tool in where the valve was... make sure to reach in there about 8 or 9 inches, (the safety float is in there on the left, you can see it with a flashlight) otherwise it won't reach the water. Now simply suck up as much water as you can. You won't be able to get it all, you just need enough removed to drop the float.

Now try your D/W... after a normal 2 minute drain, it should fire right up.
