Neff S5555 - empties water but stuck in draining mode.
I have a two year old Neff S5555 which has stopped working.
Although it successfully empties out all the the waste water it does not seem to want to finish it's wash cycle - getting stuck in a constant drain (with the pump running and impeller spinning to remove water that is not there).
I have switched the machine on and off, reset the programme to no avail.

If this machine uses an electrical-mechanical timer with cam switches, the try oiling the shaft bushings both for the timer motor and cams-the timer may be getting stuck because of dry or corroded bushings

Hi Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due
to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that
the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is
present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and
drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump
completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller &
clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the
complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps...
Please post back for any further assistance. Daniel
A couple of possibilities here.
The drum belt could have off, or the motor is not working, possibly due to worn brushes in the motor.
Either way, it means the washer has to come out of the cabinet for you to check these things.
Please rate my solution .
first of all, i'm gonna guess that the water supply under the sink is turned on.
the water you hear is the left over water from a previous cycle. there is always some left in the hoses after it drains, just like your washer.
this is 1 of 2 things. either your float is stuck in the up position or your water inlet valve is malfunctioning. the float is the quick and easy fix. the float is somewhere inside your dishwasher. it tells the water to stop coming in when it reaches a certain height, just like your toilet. it could look like anything, but most likely a cone or a little hat. just grab it and try to move it up and down. it should slide freely. it was probably stuck up and your handling will have solved the problem. we hope.
if the float was ok, the inlet valve needs checked or replaced. it is under the machine and has the water supply line hooked up to it. good luck
check filter or drain hose it probably have a dirt,try to fill with water manually and turn on pump to dispossess water,if water not go out and pump work then you have dirt in hose or filter,if pump not work then pump is broken.
First try disconnecting the unit, completely from any power, for an hour or more, look in any control doors or access points for a small battery mounted to a board or in a holder, if you find one, take it out also, noting the positive and negative orientation.
If that doesn't do it, there are reset buttons under the tops or lids of some NEFF models, if there is an obvious lid after trying the no power trick, take off the top and look for a stand alone reset button.
not easy to fix - it has a leak. the tray at the base is full of water which ooperates a float which switches drain pump on. remove front panel at bottom front and mop out water or tilt backwards 45deg and water will run out. leak is usually main pump
