I have an old Bauknecht dishwasher GSF 3160 S that a friend gave us 10 years ago. It was stored for that time, and now if I try to use it, it leaks out through the bottom and floods the kitchen.

I started working with the Karcher KB4040 pressure washer and all was well for 1-2mins, then it sputered a bit and all power died. All hoses were still attached properly, it hadn't blown a fuse in my house and the fuse in the plug of the washer is working fine.When I switch it on I get nothing. Do you think the motor has packed in? I borrowed the machine from my neighbour who's away on holiday, so don't know much about age of the machine. Any advice much appreciated.

I am an Australian who has bought a second hand Defy Dishmaid dishwasher from a South African work mate. It is a 2/3 year old machine that he bought over from South Africa. When he moved into a new house the machine did not fit his kitchen bench opening much to his frustration so he sold it. When placed in my kitchen it was a tight fit and upon recent inspection the floor pan of the unit, it may have buckled. It worked well until recently when we did some renovations when I needed to remove
