The dishwasher seems to be stuck mid cycle and keeps trying to empty water. Tried turning it off from the mains to see if this might reset it but no luck. Now wondering if there is a blockage somewhere which is why it keeps trying to empty itself.

Will have another go tonight so any ideas or suggestions welcomed

Sounds like you have a leak & the anti-flood protection device has kicked in (that's why the cycle has stopped & you hear the pump running). Try tipping it forward (or backward) & see if water runs out. Put a couple of old towels down first. Once the water is out you ought to be able to run a cycle, at least until it activates the anti-flood again......Then its time to go leak hunting!

I hadnt thought of it being a leak. I will try emptying it fully and see if that works. I am guessing you mean that the leak would be internal in the machine as we havent had any floods in the kitchen. Will take another look tonight. Thanks for the input as cant afford another machine right now

If you have an internal leak, say from the circulation motor seals (which is a common place to get one) water collects on the base plate. Normally you don't see anything on the floor around the machine. The anti-flood device is not much more than a piece of polystyrene with a micro-switch stuck on the top. When water leaks into the base plate the polystyrene gets lifted up & activates the micro-switch. Which in turn shuts down the cycle, closes the inlet valve, & starts the pump. The machine will stay in this state until the water is removed from the base plate (by leaning it over). Once the water is off the base plate the DW should start as normal, but the leak still needs to be tracked down.

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread but this is the closest thread I could find to my search.

It appears that our "main motor" has gone, either that or a seal perhaps? The unit is just over 2yrs old and has recently started not appearing to get the water hot enough and the wash results were getting poor. Then quite suddenly it would just stop mid-cycle and run the drain pump constantly.

We have had someone round to have a look at it and they immediately said "main motor gone, might as well get a new unit, too expensive to replace". When tipped over there was some water evident in the base of the unit.

Is it an expensive/difficult job to replace the main motor and is it possible that there is just a seal that has gone?

Thanks in advance for any advice
