Welcome, my name is Rob and I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Is it possible this is an IDI 60?

Is the water above the filters?

Can you tell me how the waste hose is connected to the house plumbing?
Is it to the U bend under the sink?

Thanks

hi Rob

Hi John

Great, thanks

Disconect the waste hose at the u bend.
Put the plug in the sink, just incase !!!

Put the hose into a bucket on the top of the machine.
Select a new cycle
It should pump out the water for about 60 seconds. Switch it off as soon as it stops pumping.
Did a lot of food debris come out? or what happened?

Thanks

Hi John
Thats good news

It sounds like either the hose or the pump is blocked with food debris.
You can try blowing down the hose. If it burbles through the water, try it again in the bucket.
If not you will need to bail out as much of the water as you can, then from underneath, undo the waste hose from the pump. Some water will come out, so put down old towels. (DONT TURN THE MACHINE ON ITS SIDE).
Then clear out the hose and check the pump outlet is not blocked.

Refit and try the waste hose in the bucket again.

If the pump hassiezed let me know and ill find a replacement.

In the meantime,
