Check to see if a spill has glued the door shut from the heat of the cleaning. Remove it with oven cleaner. Some devices have a timer that waits for a while before releasing the door. I had a front load washer that did that, very exasperating.
Try this, remove the bean hopper, and vac out the burr chamber, then put 1 tablespoon white rice in the burr chamber and cover with hand and turn grinder on, if the rice grinds, then your grind might have been set too fine. Turn the grinder towards fine until you can barely turn the burr nut, you will feel them touching, then turn course about 16 notches (do not use numbers, use the small notches around the rim), that should give you a great starting point for your grind.
There's a 'pre-chamber' behind a panel at the bottom on the front. The top of the panel should tilt forward & up. Turn the 'pre-chamber' anti clockwise, after putting a shallow tray under it to catch the small amount of water that may be there.
I think I have a pdf manual (found on web somewhere) on another computer, I'll have a look & send it to you if you can give me an email address.
Look in the inside for any screen that would be easily removed, some dishwashers have a self cleaning filter so you may not find it. I have a lot of other tips for you if your dishwasher is not cleaning so check it out. http://tclaundryrepair.com/dishwasher
To gain access to the pump, remove lower plastic cover at front by prising down with a screwdriver, and remove same.
You will see the pump pre-chamber cover, unscrew it anticlockwise,and check for anything in there .
Refit cover and refit plastic panel.
Please rate my fixya solution.
The pump is actually a self cleaning pump, but there is a filter located behind the bottom kick strip at the front bottom of the washer.
To access it you should see 2 screws in the panel, unscrew these and remove the panel, then you will see the filter,unscew it anti clockwise and remove the filter, clean as neccessary, see if you can see anything in the filter chamber. and refit it. This should solve your problem.
Plz leave feedback.
I have a PWE8168 and assuming yours has a similar arrangement: 1) Switch off water and electricity feeds; 2) Pull the washing machine forward a sufficient distance to allow you to tip it back so that you can gain access to the area next to the pre chamber lid. I found my tool box was handly at propping up the front! 3) A torch is handy at this point. Lie on the floor, and use a pair of mole grip pliers to release the springs securing the pipe attached to the left of the pre chamber filter (looking from the front of the machine). 4) Note that if you have not been able to drain your machine already your should have some towels/cloths and (eg) a tuppaware container ready to collect all the water. 5) Slide the pipe off and you should be able to get your fingers into the pump pre chamber and fish out whatever is jamming both the pump and the lid. I got a 5p piece for my troubles!
I would not say that this is a particularly difficult procedure and apart from water collecting, should only take 20 minutes, including reconnecting the pipe.
