Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sorry yes
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what's next?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Sorry, I was looking at the design of the appliance and its fault codes.. d08 is a sprinkling distribution fault, but the fault is likely due to the drain pump or recirculation pump being jammed
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
OK. So what's next?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Does the dishwasher drain if you reset it?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it won't do anything at the moment. also the end indicator is flashing
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Turn the appliance off at the wall for ten minutes.. Is your model standalone or integrated?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we did try that earlier but can do it again.
It's a fully integrated model
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
You'll need to drain the water from inside. Once this is done you'll need to remove the panel from under the door to get to the drain pump. The drain pump is a twist fit pump, but it has small locking parts. You need to remove it to check for blockages (small glass parts or similar) that stop the impeller rotating. The pump looks like this

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Try this
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think I've identified the pump but not sure how you 'twist' it off??
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
It has a little locking tab.. you can see it on the lower part of the image I sent you... you need to release that tab and twist the pump anti-clockwise
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok got it out . can't see anything obvious to stop it working
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Ok, make sure the impeller turns... Do you have a multimeter?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it turns with a jerking movement to each position?
I don't have a multimeter
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
Ok.. If we don't have a multimeter then we can not test it other than direct power feed. The other pump is toward the rear of the appliance and looks like this:
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
and?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.
That is the main wash pump.. To get at it you'll need to remove the dishwasher from its housing.. As you can see, that pump has a turnpoint at the rear.. Hopefully your appliance has a removable base... Remove the appliance from its housing and remove the base.. Turn the turnpoint and listen for a crunch as it turns. If it wont turn then you need to find what is jamming it.. once it is turning you can test the appliance. Whilst testing it, if it does not turn, listen for a buzz from the pump. If there is a buzz but no turning action, replace the capacitor on the side of the pumps motor. If there is not removable base you'll need to access by removing the right hand side panel. I am going offline now until tomorrow.. hopefully you will have a running dishwasher by then.
