Hi, CDA WC140 IN dishwasher on draining, I have cleaned filter

Resolved Question:

Hi, CDA WC140 IN dishwasher on draining, I have cleaned filter (& washer arms whilst I was there), I have tried to flush pipes through with water as I have done before but this time it will not drain away. All 3 (salt, rinse aid & end) lights were flashing & the warning beeping sound was there. Can you help, cheers, Andy.

KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

How old is it ?

KevinWhiteJA :

Do you hear a hum sound from the bottom ?

Customer:

Hi, sorry, didn't notice time, been working on it all morning & had to do school run.

Customer:

No hum noise that I remember, Its about 4 to 5 years old.

KevinWhiteJA :

OK

KevinWhiteJA :

as you have already tried to clean the drain pump and everything can you also pull it out and lay it on its side by around 45 degrees so that if there is any water in there it comes off

KevinWhiteJA :

if this won't help then the drain pump will need replacement

Customer:

Do you mean remove the whole dishwasher or the drain pump? if so, how do I remove that?

KevinWhiteJA :

you will have to pull it out and then take off the bottom panel to replace the drain pump

KevinWhiteJA :

CDA WC140IN-0 Drain Pump

KevinWhiteJA :

Customer:

Damn, thats going to take some time & work, its a sealed fitted unit. Its doable though.

KevinWhiteJA :

you can also try to clean everything before replacing the pump

Customer:

Ok, (sorry about this) I've just turned machine on & there is a Hum, the lights flashing are the 55c, 50c eco, the rinse light & the End light. not my day today.

KevinWhiteJA :

OK was just checking

KevinWhiteJA :

that is not a valid error code

KevinWhiteJA :

so you can pull the unit out and then clean it completely

KevinWhiteJA :

you can put the unit on its left side

then take the base off

KevinWhiteJA :

and take out the pump to clean it completely
