I have the cover off the machine. I can run the pumping out cycle with the door open to see what is happening.
It works properly except that instead of pumping out it seems to be returning the water through the wash arms. Is this normal - ie, does the water keep getting returned until the last 15 seconds or so, when the pump works alone?
Even when the pump is working alone there isnt any pump action. I have looked online for a schematic to see how to remove the pump, but so far I cant even identify what part IS the drain pump. I dont appear to have anything (at the right hand side of the machine anyway) that looks like this;http://www.espares.co.uk/part/dishwashers/bosch/skt5102gb%2f01/p/1083/856/0/998848/486170/drain-pump.html.
I know there did use to be a plan online - does anyone know where it is?
I am poretty sure I can fix thi, as longa s I can identify and remove the old pump
I had a problem that seems to be related, but it came out that the pump was blocked. I had service to open and remove a small plastic clip that had came into the machine accidently. I do not recognize that water was pumped back as you explain but if the water is not emptied may be this is the result...

you have a plugged or partial plugged drain pump for sure. maybe there is a 20 stuck in it this time! easy to find just follow the drain hose back and you will find your pump.
also could be the cycle your using has a bad area in timing cct. check a different cycle like the delicate cycle and that will confirm pump or cycle
Clean the drain pump while the machine is off. There is a small door on the bottom front panel of the machine. Open this. You will see a jar cover like thing that you can unscrew. Unscrew this. A lot of water will gush out.... be careful..... Clean this and put the filter and cap back. If same thing happens again when you run the machine, you will have to replace the drain pump. Chances are, you are trying to run a 50 hertz machine on a 60 hertz line.
Good Day, Your
washing machine is fully automatic?
washing cycle is normal?
do the same maybe it will help you.
the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the
filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a
ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any
small item that coz of clog up.
your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain
motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing
machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running?
the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the
drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the
water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or
cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or
drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or
totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop
the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully
automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor
must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.
On our Kenmore front loader the guy came out and pulled the front lower cover off and opened the large round plug cap and there was the kids paint ball ammo stuck in the pre-pump end. Then he re-set the computer board with his tester. When this happened the second time, I repeated what he did, except I unplugged the unit. It cleared the memory and works fine...
if the water is leaking during the fill cycle when the detergent is being added from the drawer ensure the draw is clear, if too much deturget rests has blocked the vent then water maybe running out on the inside.
if the problem is happening during the wash cycle this indicates a leak on your drum, ensure your door seal is intact and not leaking.
if the problem is during pumping, ensure that the pump is not causing a problem maybe open the bottom vent and ensure the cover is seated properly and pump is clear. also check the outlet pipe is not blocked or leaking and water is running back on the outside of the outlet pipe and under the machine
if there is still water in the washer you can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose.Once all the water is removed from the washer you should be able to open the door.
then you need to check the drain pump for anything that may be obstructing the pump. make sure to check the hose that leads from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump.
IF water is left in machine then door wont unlock, check pump, run drain cycle. If pump runs but doesnt remove water, then check filter at bottom (small door on bottom front) water will come out when this is done. If washer is completely empty of water and door locked then you may access lock release tab from bottom or reaching down from top to lock asm. Then check lock
Not a solution but exactly the same problem. I should have sent the machine back (I bought mine about 2008 too) but by now, 2010, the machine is a complete waste of time and money. The soap dispenser fails to open every time, wasting money, water and my patience because I then have to hand wash after all. will try the suggested oil trick, but it was obviously a bad design to start with.
