Look for leaks around the lower spray arm or soap door. Check the plastic on the lower spray arm to make sure it is not cracking down the middle. Replace the arm if you find any cracks or splits. If the soap door is leaking, it probably needs a replacement gasket.

abviosely check that there is water going into it but also check the float switch. There should be a bobber type of thing that goes up and down when the water fills in there. Move that up and down to see if it's stuck. You should here a click of a switch when doing that. If that doesn't do it let me know.

Means that the shorrt washes are working correct. So the input is the same for all for the motor to intitiate and so this indicates that there is a program errror.
You can cross check once again to plug up all connectors an sensorrs.
Check with the short program the missing components and it can be the fault. Can the heater be the ISSUE? please check.

Hello there
I will post this solution in 2 seperate post for you
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.

If it is coming out the bottom of the door (ie around the bottom seal, it may be the dish washing powder. Had this issue on one machine and simply changing back to the one the manufacturer recommend stopped the puddles forming. I think it is due to the power being too sudsy and creating excess bubbles

If you don't put salt in the appliance then the regeneration crystals will clump together over time and solidify. This will cause a restriction in the softener unit.
If you stopped using it and then started again you may find that the impurities caught by the crystals have simply found their way into the appliance.
You can set the softener to be at minimum setting if you are in a soft water area.

The salt isn't used to soften the water, it's used to clean the crystals in the water softener unit.
Why Do I Need to Use Salt in my Dishwasher?
Salt is needed to ensure that your dishwasher's in-built water softener gives an optimum performance. You will especially need to use dishwasher specific salt if you live in a hard water area. You can purchase one of our Aqua test strips (part number 180876) to determine the hardness of your water from our parts and accessories store or call us on 08448 225 225 .

Manually drain the floor of the machine, put in salt, and check out.
open the salt container at the bottom, and it will be full up with water, and it really will smell bad. clean it and add salt near to 1kg. then run run a prewash cycle and then check out does the salt error is coming up.if yes then more salt needs to be added.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively.thank you for using fixya

Disassembled dishwasher. Some plastic scraps had shredded and wound itself around the pump impeller axis. It was preventing the motor from turning. Upon removal diswasher again worked fine.

Is the drain attached directly to the side of the disposal? If so, you didnt take the "knock out" out. Where the drain goes for the washing, there is a block in case the house does not have a washing machine. U need to knock this out with a screwdriver and whatever (plyers or hammer). Not tough to do. Good luck

Check flap valve and solenoid-Check for hose kinks or food clogs-Check pump impeller for damage-Check-timer Check the (check-valve flapper) some models have a check valve located where the drain hose attaches to the dishwasher.If you just installed an garbage disposal check the knock-out plug at the connection.Check that the pump hasnt gotton stuck due to lack of use or gunk in the pump. 3 things 1-You can remove the lower kick panel and turn the fan blade on the motor until it turns freely 2- Boil a big pot of water and pour it into the tub part let it stand for 15 to 20 min then try the dishwasher 3- Or my (FAV) duct tape your shop-vac to the waste hose and try to blow or **** out the stoppage. Rice is a big problem and pasta for dishwashers and thanks for the advice on my car I will try the method,and sorry about the comment
