Answers :

I may have had the same problem. At the end of a normal wash cycle the pump would stay on for hours or even days - I would have to power off, and then keepp trying to power on until it had eventually stopped. The pump operates even with the door open.

\015\012Problem is caused by a small float which senses the water level in the dishwasher, floating up and operating a microswitch, which turns on the pump to pump the water out. Obviously, if the dishwashe is filling up for some reason, you want the pump to operate even if the door is open. The float is in a small chamber - a very snug fit, with a hole in the bottom which is connected to the main pipework in the machine. There is another chamber next to the flot chamber which is also connected to the pipework. When the water level rises too high, water from this second chamber overflows into the flot chamber, raising the float and operating the pump. The water level then drops as the water is pumped out. The water level in the float chamber should also drop, but didn't on my dishwasher because the hole in the bottom was blocked (with old soap suds and grime I assume). Hence the pump just stays on. I assume in my case, the water flowed out very slowly, and eventually the pump stopped.

\015\012To fix it, removed the left hand side panel (2 screws on the front door lip. The back of the panel is just hooked on some raised bits of plastic). This exposes all the pipework, and the red float can be seen in it's chamber. I removed an extra couple of bits of plastic near the float chamber whilst I tried to work out what to do - but this may not be necessary. You will have to try for yourself. I couldn't get access to the hole to poke something in to unblock it, so I poured sink and drain cleaner into the flot chamber, topping up as it drained away, leaving it for approx. 15 mins. I think thick bleach would also work. Note: this cleaner won't be very good for any metal inside the dishwasher, so run 1 or 2 wash cycles to clean it out.
\015\012
\015\012Maybe the dishwasher cleaner advertised on tv would have worked i.e. the stuff you put in the dishwasher on an emty cycle to clean out all the internals. I haven't used it, but it would be easier than taking the dishwasher to pieces.

\015\012Hope this helps
I solved the same problem where pump is going with door open, this was after reading johhny boy 1's advice ,
\015\0121, remove all trays inside,
\015\0122. clean filter area with sponge
\015\0123. poor jug of water into pump and if it is pumped away you have the same problem as me.
\015\0124 with pump filter/ mesh still out, pour a cup of house hold bleach into pump tray and top this up with a litre of cold water . turn pump on to empty.
\015\0125. repeat this 4 or five times
\015\0126 . pour a cup of bleach and this time top up with a kettle of hot water and pump away (turn machine on), the turn off.
\015\0127. leave for 5 mins then turn machine on and bang inside left wall with hand and when float drops the pump will stop.
\015\0128. flush washer with hot wash.
\015\012
\015\012worked for me without having to strip down machine.
\015\012
\015\012hope this helped , thanks johhny boy!

My Miele G641 displays the Salt PC light even after filling it with salt. I have to cycle the main power switch 3 or 4 times before the Start light will come on. Then when I press the Start button it momentarily pumps out water and then stops. Sometimes the Start light stays on and I can get it to give the pump another brief spurt, but often the Salt/PC light comes on again and the Start light goes out. I then have to re-set the power switch. How do I tell if the logic board is fried?

I have a KitchenAid KDS-17E dishwasher, which has worked well since I acquired it second-hand in 1984. Last night it ran continuously, stuck in the prewash part of fullcycle, with water being pumped through the system, and was fairly warm in the morning. It drained normally when I pressed the Cancel/drain button. I tried the machine again in full cycle. After 20 minutes it was still stuck in prewash, with the water temperature about 42 C, so I stopped it. Machine is connected to cold wate

My SB908WL Westinghouse dishwasher is tripping the switch when it goes to pump out the water. What are the likely problems and solutions please! If anyone has some expertise that would be great. (I have recently checked the soldering on the main panel and touched one point up, the rest are fine it seems). The element is working as there is hot water in the unit. We have small kids so maybe something is jammed in there? How do I get access to check. All input helpful. Thanks!
