    pumping out continuously part 2!
    thanks for the advise from karma but i have found the linkge arm (i think) but do not see 2 screws or a c clip anywhere but a plastic housing which has 2 electrical spade connectors and a motor winding, also a round barrel looking thing underneath which i beleive to be the solenoid? which has a magnet looking piece around it, should this be moving?

    great advise from KARMA thankyou, after spending a few hours on my hands and knees i feel like i know my dishwasher personally.problem was so simple that i had overlooked it several times, there was some water sitting in the bottom of the washer base which had made the float switch rise causing the pump to continuously activate, so grabbed a sponge and mopped it out .........job done!!!!

Remove the lower kick panel by removing the 2 screws located just below the door hinge point. There should be a relay to the left side of the middle of the dishwasher. It looks like this sort of: --- / ! !----/ The arm looking part is the ! ! linkage that opens and close ------- the butterfly for draining. ! ! The other part is selinoid ! ! which is probably corroided ! ! or has overheated and is !-----! stuck. Remove the power to the unit and remove the 2 screws and the c clip holding the linkage on. disconnect the wires at the connection which is front right of the selinoid. Use some 3 in 1 oil if you don't have any electronic cleaner, and work the selinoid up and down. It is highly magnetized, so use some back arm. After it moves freely, re-install. That should do it. Now get in there and make me a pie ;)

Easy solution, your pump filter is blocked. There is usually a tube behind a panel at the bottom of the machine, undo this and drain into a suitable container, then unscrew the drain plug and clear the blockage (usually fluff or sweetpapers!). This is probably in your handbook under emergency emptying/drain pump clearing. Beware lots of water can come out!!

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher modl # KUDIO01IL. Someone opened the door during a wash cycle and now the CLEAN LED is flashing. Tried pushing cancel and unplugging. No change. Any ideas/

Please check if the clean light is blinking 7 times. If yes then please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry.
If this doesn't work then its an issue with the heater circuit, door switch, wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

Hi Jonathan,

Welcome to FixYa.

Your float may have got stuck or it's possible that you have water leaking into the bottom of the washer. In the bottom of the wash compartment, next to the drain you will find a plastic dome/mushroom (the float). You might need to rotate the bottom spray arm to see it.

Turn the washer on so that the pump starts to run, open the door and push down on the float. This should stop the pump running. When you let go of the float, if it rises back up on its own, then it's almost certain that you have water in the bottom of the washer. If this is the case please post back for further assistance. If the float stays down, then it may have simply got stuck.

Please try this simple test and post back with the results.

Hotpoint Aquarius Wma30, leaking water...filter?

There should be a plastic filter fitted in the hose, if there is not, then it should not stop the pump working, unless ther is a blockage in the hose from the drum to the pump, or a blockage in the hose from the outlet of the pump.Try removing the hose from the pump outlet, and blowing down it to see if is clear.
Also the pump itself could be faulty.

That lock icon indicates a locked door, and if you can open your door with it locked, your door lock will need to be reset. Your instruction manual should have your reset procedure listed in back. But if your door IS locked, you will need to manually drain out the water before it will open.

Like I was describing my problem I forget to mention that I was getting the F21 error, everywhere tell you that that error means you need to clean the filter and check the pump, wich I did but still having the same results even after the pump was working and draining the water perfectly, the problem was the pressure switch, which I change it Whirlpool part# 8181695 around $55.00 to $60.00 Dollars and the washing machine start working. I took the time to open the old switch to see the inside there are actually 2 different swichts inside one of them was working that was in some websites recomend you to try to listen for a click wich in my case I was able to hear, but the second switch was the problem it was not working properly and that's why the washing machine keept draining always. It looks like F21 errors means that is been trying to drain for more than 8 minutes, that most of the cases is because drain blockage, but my case was different. I hope this can help anyone with the same problem I had.

Zanussi ZWF 1021 W The door won't release after the end of any cycle, even empty or spin. What can I do to get the clothes out?

First thing would be to check the filter at front of machine as any blockage will cause this problem.
Try this and come back for further assistance.
