Your dishwasher is equipped with a safety system which is able to
detect any operating anomalies. These anomalies are reported by
one or two wash cycle indicator lights "G" flashing rapidly.

  • Drain motor disabled
  • Filters clogged

Zanussi tempoline not working, son twisted nob mid cycle it then stopped and wouldn't drain. Now not doing anything! Any ideas? I assume its a error code flashing up


The first step of a dishwasher is a drain / rinse drain. I would turn the dishwasher off at the socket, turn the nob to the off position only turn this in a clock wise direction IE: the direction the nob would naturally move. Turn on back at the wall and start as you would normally. The dishwasher will empty the water out in its first step then should cycle through as normal.

My Dishlex Global 300 dishwasher stops mid cycle and the rinse light keeps flashing ?


Hi,
I think I had the same problem. I don't know much about dishwashers, but the "Flashing Rinse" has something to do with the drain, or the drain pump (which is why the water doesn't drain).

My dishwasher stopped its cycle, after having filled up with water, even though everything else worked fine, because the drain pump was not even turning on. So I guess, the first question I asked was, is the drain blocked? No. When this happened the first time, the flashing rinse cam up. After that, the dishwasher just wouldn't drain, and there was no longer a flashing rinse.

So then, I figured, the drain pump is probably rooted. The drain pump is found underneith the dishwasher, just behind the front panel on the left hand side.You'll need to remove the metal covers from the front and the left.

When this happened to me, I thought I'd need to buy a new pump, so I pulled the other one out (its a bit fiddly, you have to disconnect the two electrical wires, then remove the drain pipe from it, and then wiggle it off. But when I got it out, I unscrewed it (it has the special hexagonal screws, not phillips or flathead), and it turns out, a fairly large fruit seed had got into the drain pump and blocked it, preventing it from spinning. I put it back together again, and it worked.
It so far has beaten paying $100 for a new pump.

If you want a visual of what the drain pump looks like, look up the dishwasher part number #8905912, you should be able to find it on the internet. Hope this helps.

Stops mid cycle often


Hi there, did you ever find out what was wrong with your dishwasher? I have a Westinghouse 904 doing the same thing but when we moved into this house the manual was long lost. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Dishwasher not emptying


either the pump is not working or the discharge hose is clogged, if you have an air gap on the sink take the hose off and hold it down see if the water comes out by tself if so the pump is bad if not the drain is colgged take out the bottom tray you will need a 1/4 inch nut driver take the plastic screen cover plate off clear it of debris, there is a sharp metal blade in there so be careful, after cleaning it out turn on to rinse and see if it drains if not you will need to either replace the dishwasher or the pump, dollar for dollar new dishwasher time

Indesit D167. When cycle selected no water pumping or filling but 1 & 2 green indicators on.


Tilt your dishwasher forwards. Be aware that water will come out ouf the bottom. Once this is clear your washer should be Ok.
Good Luck
