A bit louder than a low hum.
I dropped the kick plate...sort of put my hand inside,tried fiddle with motor. Turned machine on again . And now just low hum....appears to be from motor....like it sounds stuck. when i opened the door left light no longer flashing. possible unlike b4 depress P button 5 secs and 3 beeps ,can change program.
Restarted machine,no longer low hum....motor ' seems ' to work......opened door quite soon....rotor blades dry.
There was some residual water when i dropped kick plate.
how do i turn the motor shaft.....just low hum now when i turned on. everything sheathed in plastic.
Managed to poke screw driver in to motor housing. Motor started onrectivation....but shortly after stops/ goes to low hum.....then 4 beeps,gap in between .....has started again....and now stopped....
Is it now working ok ?
Now when i open the door the middle 2 of 4 lights flashing. Might this indicate no water going in ? re manual.
Are connector taps ALWAYS ON CLOCKWISE....or should i try anticlockwise. It is because of this possible confusion that machine may have been run with tap off.I cannot tell without disconnecting the tap....and while it's possible....i am reluctant as all pipes and fittings might move and leave me with drips.
I will try.
YES. Machine appears to be working AOK now !!!!!
I read confusing info about dishwasher / washing machine taps being turned on clockwise....online info....hence confusion.
Michael, thanx for guiding me thro this. I did suspect motor sticking problems and doubted whether water was on but with your guidance dropped the kick plate. Perhaps the 4 beeps and 2 flashing lights as detailed in manual should've indicated to you water wasn't going in. I nearly gave up at the point when you said clean motor,etc. I stubbornly continued ....knowing the cost of getting an ' expert ' in.
I've been living in Goa,India where it's incredibly cheap and i'm new to UK / European prices. I've taken over my ( deceased ) parents house from my dad's second wife ( last october )....and haven't used the dishwasher...once last november.
Machine is still running ok ...i'm timing the cycle....but i reckon all good now. I won't go out until it's finished.
This www is good...but if i was a helpless housewife for instance....it wouldn't help her. And i own a screwdriver too....LOL
