Sounds like the main pipe is clogged - or the food filter. Check that the filter is completely clear.

SOURCE: ariston dishwasher sticks on drain

hi you may have something in the sump there's a screen on the right side ofthe spray arm with 2 screws remove them and take screen off use yourfingers to probe the cavity be careful it could be glass. If there is something in here it will make a grinding noise and stay in drain cycle forever.

If it does not correct the problem

!.You may have an electric pump . and it could be a check valve at the pump and hose assembly...where the check valve is...see below . so it could be a bad pump but I doubt it.

GE dishwashers will have a sumpentrance screen ( #4 ) that should beremoved and checked for any gookus, see 1 or 2 screws on the cover top, which isbehind the lower spray arm. Almost all ( some newer GE dishwashers have a separatedrain pump and motor - but for our purpose, we will talk about the mostcommon GE dishwashers ) GE dishwashers have a drainsolenoid ( #1 ) that can fail and stopthe draining. If the solenoid cannot pull in the silver plunger, the drain portwill not open to allow the motor and pump assembly to drain the water out. Thesolenoid can be ohmedwith an ohm meter for continuity, or tested to see if it is receiving 110-120 volts AC. Many GEdishwashers have a selfclean filter ( #3 ) inside at the back.The draining water must pass through a plunger in the self clean filter body.This can get clogged up, or the plunger may twist and distort and not allow thedraining water to get past. The filter can be removed from the inside and theplunger will twist out of the self cleaning body for testing/checking. Next obstaclefor the draining water in the backflush valve ( #2 ). This valve can twistor distort and block the water flow as well. The drain port will need to beaccessed to check this flapper valve, the drain port will untwist from the selfclean filter body. All hoses in-between the items mentioned above and the drainhose itself all the way to the house plumbing should be checked forrestrictions.

Some extra filter, draining tips and pictures....

During the wash and rinse modes of the cycle, soiled waterfalls down the back of the tub and into the filter area. The water comes throughthe filter and back into the tub. During the wash and rinse periods all ( wehope! ) the water will pass through the filter. The soil will settle into thecollection chamber and is held there. When the dishwasher goes into the pump outmode the water in the sump is pumped through the collection chamber. This closesthe piston valve to the inside of the tub. The pump flushes the collectionchamber of all the food soil and pumps it down the drain. A check valve islocated in the drain line port. This valve allows the water to flow in the draindirection only and prevents the water from coming back into the tub. The drainline check valve must close in the back flow direction or the piston valve inthe collection chamber may not reopen into the tub after the pump out iscomplete. Water should "fall" through the filter and go back into thetub....the heavier food particles go down into the chamber and are collected.

Hereis a link for you to check out...I have all this info in my data basebut since it is in PDF format it does not translate well to thisformat...

SOURCE: Ariston L63 dishwasher stopped mid cycle with water in base.

1) Ensure the dishwasher is turned off. 2) (may not apply) Turn the plastic blue lever located under the sink to the vertical position (this opens the valve, so water can go into the dishwasher) 3) Pour powder indo the dishwasher 4) Turn the dishwasher controller to the top position (the 12 o?clock position) ? this is the eco-setting. 5) Press the on/power button on the dishwasher, so that it now turned on (a light will display) 6) Move the dishwasher controller to the ?R? position (it?s on the very left), and leave it there a second or two. 7) Move the dishwasher controller back to the eco-setting (the 12 o?clock position

Why does the dishwasher stop mid-cycle when I use the normal cycle


You need to provide a brand/model number and more info--does the unit fill with water and run? Does it drain the water out? Does the problem only occur on the normal cycle or on any of the cycles? Is the cycle select an electronic push button type or is it the older, mechanical, rotary knob type? This extra info will help narrow down the issue.

Samsung dishwasher flashing heavy light


Had a look in the user manual for your dishwasher.http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201211/20121101114232459/DW7933LRASR-00141A-02.pdf

Page 26 shows blinking Heavy light means there is leakage in the dishwasher. Most likely there is water in the base under the drain sump which could cause the flood switch to trip. Turn mains power to dishwasher off. Pull it out from under kitchen bench without breaking the hoses. Put some towels on the floor and turn dishwasher back and forth on incline to get water out. Wait a little and turn on. If no difference then you need to dry the base and find the source of the leak. More likely the door seal.

Dishwasher keeps tripping electric


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?
Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!
Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.
The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwash
If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.


  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.


Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

dear batties,
Such water filling problems can be generally solved by checking the following
  • Inspect the seals for the main tub, float, heating element and blower diffuser
  • Check for overfilling
  • Inspect the water and drain hoses
  • Inspect the door gaskets
  • Check the water inlet valve
  • Check the pump
Also for the mid cycle problems check the following
