How old is it ?
Have you also tried to pull it out and then lay it on its back by around 45 degrees so that if still there is any water in there it drains out...after reading your questions the problem is more likely with the float
Yes I've had the machine out and had the base off. I checked the float, which moved freely and I could hear the switch clicking on/off. Do you think I need a new float switch or would disconnecting the plug to it prove it was faulty?
Yes you can try that as well
Thanks. I'll give it a go.
sure, it that does not help then test the heater assembly with a multi meter
let me know how it goes

I've checked the float switch and it is working (I looped out the plug to rule out the switch). Checked heater and gave 30ohms, so presume ok.
Also meant to say I have checked resisatnce across the recirc pump and it was ok (approx 80ohms) and the capicitor checks our ok.
I've tried the machine again and the sequence is as follows, 1) drain pump cycle starts, 2) starts to fill with water, 3) then it sits and does nothing (no noise, such as the pump trying to start - nothing). Only light on is the orange "wash" light, 4) some time later the drain pump starts again. It seems as though the circ pump is not actually being told to start. Are there any sensors that need checked that could be preventing the wash sequence to start?
Sorted it! I checked the water feed flow meter and found the plug onto the switch poc
..........hit return by mistake.
I checked the water feed flow meter and found the plug connected to the switch pcb must have been making a poor connection. Now that it detects water flow, the dishwasher now works through the wash cycle correctly.
I don't feel the checking of the flow switch and heater were reasons for the fault I was experiencing. Flow switch problems seem to result in the emptying pump running all the time (I found that out when I shorted out the flow switch), which wasn't what I was experiencing and also not sure how a heater fault would explain the fault either. I feel I would have found my fault via a process of ellimination anyway. I am happy to offer some payment, but I don't feel the advise I got was worth £28.
