Some water in the bottom is normal but if it is inches deep and threatening to over flow you can disconect the power and remove the drain cover. Check for obstructions. If you do not find any obstructions the discharge valve may be sticking. If you open the lower front cover you can look and see if the lever is moving freely by turning the power back on and open and close the washer door. you will here a click when the relay engages and should be able to follow it to the lever.

Water sits in bottom


If water does not drain at all then the drain pump could be blocked.
If only a little water is remaining but cycle is complete, then this is normal.
However, do check the kitchen drain is clear and you do not have a garbage disposer (insinkerator) in sink which is full. Normally empty it before you start the dishwasher.
Do you get any alarms (lights flashing etc)

Moved into home and dishwasher runs threw the cycles...does not spray water on dishes water sitting in the bottom?? Something blocked or not connected?


check if there is water at the bottom of tub when it's going through the cycle. If there isn't, i'd suspect a burnt out water valve

Bosch dishwasher fills with water after cycle is completed


Sounds like you need a new water inlet valve. It's not shutting off completely, so water slowly enters the machine even while it isn't running.

Dishwasher repair


without model unablr to look up exact unit, but in genreral, either ther is a blockage/clog in oyour drain line not alowing complete drain of cycle, as far as never really washing, i would look into perhaps a faulty/ sloppy door switch assembly. if for some reason the dorr latch "loses contact" the machine will take that as someone openig the door and thus stopping from proceding in cycle.with complete model umber i may bbe able to assist further

The dishwasher in my kitchen doesn't seem to drain and it seems pump is not working


My motto is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it.", but in this case we will make an acception. Check the inside of the washer for a float device sitting on the bottom. Floats can get stuck or bent over, make sure it goes up and down freely

Dishwasher not working


Hi Frazzledmum, Miele have a safety float switch in the bottom of the machine. (The float is a polystyrene disc). If the machine leaks for any reason, then the water sits in the bottom tray raises the float switch & all your dishwasher will do is activate the drain pump and flash those red lights at you. The reason is that somewhere under the machine there is a leak that needs to be investigated & repaired so in this instance I'm affraid that you will have to call a serviceman. Kind regards
