    My problem is that it emptys very slowly and because of this it's leaving my pots not cleaned properly.

    I took the filters out in the bottom of the machine, took the cover( held in by one screw) pulled out the pump impeller cover after sponging out the residue water to find that some of the veins on the impeller have been broken off ! i am hoping that this is the cause of my machine not emptying properly. hope this helps. ****.

If the drain is plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap, then this spigot is blanked off to prevent water coming out when you empty the sink. remove blank

DWF 415 Ikea Whirlpool Dishwasher as constant


DWF 415 Ikea Whirlpool Dishwasher has constant green blinking light. Drain pump works ok (as it will pump out a jug of water if I tip it into it!) but no water comes in. Cycle stops about 30 seconds after thre is no more water to pump. Any ideas on how to fix?

Dishwasher keeps pumping out - won't start cycle - green light flashing on panel


I had same symptoms on a Hotpoint dishwasher.
Turned out to be a failed water heater.
The logic in this case goes like this:
When wash cycle starts, the first thing the machine does is pump out any water that has collected in the sump since it was last run.
It then allows a small amount of clean water in and enables the water heater.
If heater okay, it then continues with the rest of cycle.
In this case, the control board detected failed heater so pumps out the water and then stops with an error code shown by a flashing lamp.

No simple fix I'm afraid - machine had to be turned on its side, bottom panel removed, several items had to be removed to get at the water heater which was then repalced with a new one.

You dont state what make/model your dishwasher is so maybe worth adding this information as someone else may recognise your fault and have a quick fix.

SDW60 - AL08 Error - No Hot Water


First switch off the machine and unplug it at the mains. Leave for 10 minutes then plug back in and re set your machine to the programme you want. It might be that the control panel needs re-booting. They are a bit sensitive and mine had a mind of its own, washed to its own agenda, left water in the bottom etc etc. so that might be the problem with yours. If that doesnt do it, go on the Hotpoint website and find the customer service number. Ask if there is anything you can do to solve the problem yourself before paying for a service call. It could be your heating element has packed up but try the easy fix first. Thats what I did and it cost just the price of a phone call. They were really helpful.

Hotpoint Ultima dishwasher DF32


you are probably plumbed in under the sink for the drain hose. a common problem is water coming back down the drain hose when you empty the sink. if so take the drain hose up as far as possible in a swan neck. other possibility is a leaking fill valve
