Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Salt compartment not draining

\015 Hi,\015\012When I switch on my Beko DWD5410W dishwasher, it starts making immediate noise just like it's set on a wash program. However, it is not on a wash program. If I do select a program it makes no difference. It will just hum and throb forever.\015\012Additionally, when I unscrew the cap over the salt compartment, water floods upwards and out.\015\012Twice I have taken the dishwasher outside and turned it upside down, and both times it has worked thereafter, but only for a couple of days. Tonight I used an ultra-absorbent cloth to soak up all of the water in the salt compartment (rather than taking it outside again), however this has made no difference.\015\012I have tried holding down the Start button long enough to cancel any active program, but this is not relevant as no program is active.\015\012\015\012Can anybody help me?\015\012\015\012Thanks,\015\012Craig.\015

My Hoover dishwasher HFI 3015 is not working. When you turn it on, the P1 and 'out of salt' light is flashing and bleeping constantly. I believe that it may have run out of salt yesterday, but I have filled it this morning and there is plenty of Dishwasher salt in the compartment now and it is overflowing with water. I have tried turning the machine on and off, but each time I turn it on I get this bleeping and flashing and can't stop it. Any ideas?

I have a brand new Blanco dishwasher but im unsure if it is a DWF6XP, DWF4X or DWIN7 model. It does not have a salt dispenser if that helps. Last night when running for the first time i had a plumbing issue where the drain pipe was not set high enough as it states it has to be 500 to 100cm of ground height. Also had a leaking sink drain pipe. Fixed all that and turned machine back on and it pumped all the water that was inside to drain. I have cancelled the program and restarted but now it is ru

I have a Delonghi dishwasher model no. DW67S/W which is coming up with the E4 message. I had this once before and was told to turn it off and on and it righted itself. This time however I used the next bit of advice. I took everything out including the salt cap thing, tipped it on its side and drained all the water out, reconnected the hoses and when I turned it back on it seemed fine....no E4 messaage straight away. It drained out for a while and then starting filling. It has overfilled again
