Telmann Dishwasher TEL 12DWM. Dishwasher started to make weird wooshing start-stopping sounds at the beginning of the wash cycle so I stopped it. Since then the lights are on but wont go regardless of where the switch is set to. Have pulled the pump off and the inlet pipes and blown to remove any blockage but still no luck. Cant get into the water jet part due to connectors that require specfic tools to remove and replace. Any thoughts?? thanks in advance, Michael
