Question about Dishwashers
I just bought a used dishwasher (1 yr old) that was supposed to be working (but they haven't used it for a few months). When I start a program, water comes in and fills the bottom of the dishwasher, then it just sits there (there is a humming noise) but there is no washing and then at the end of the program it pumps out the water. Could anyone please help me. Thanks
It sounds like the main pump is stuck.
Try lifting the dishwasher (or tip it on it's side) and locate the main pump. It's the large one that has a white rotating disk attached to it for ventilation. Rotate this disk a few times with your finger and give it a try. You can also check that all the cables are attached correctly to the pump and capacitor (white cylinder near the pump)

This is a problem with the timer programme at the end this can be replaced but can be tricky to do your self the water should drain freely out of dishwasher if you feel confident enough taking the back off try finding the drain pipe because uselly these get blocked with either the food off the plates and it can get blocked with limescale if it hasnt been used for a while then the mess has buitl up and set hard if you can get the drain pipe off try running some bleach through it but make sure you clean all the bleach off before putting it back on otherwise everything will smell of bleach this is the only sollution it does sound like the drain p[ipe is blocked the dishwasher will cut off if the water raises in the bottom it does this as a safety feature to stop your kitchen from flooding it is more than likely a blocked pipe so check this properly and the drain in the bottom of the dishwasher as the water shouldnt just sit their it should be draining all the time but i would say clean all pipes properly before you do anything else hope this is some help......................
