My dishwasher stays on a constant cycle and will not finish the wash. Can you advise please.
Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Does it just keep washing and never end
Is the water inside still cold?
Do you have the make and model?

It's a Neff. On the front of the instruction booklet there's a code 5600 047 208 (8205) not sure if this is the model number.

1. yes it keeps washing and never ends.

2. the water is cold


OK, this is going to be a failed heating element.

When the cycle starts the heat the water, it is held constantly washing untill the temperature is reached. At this point the thermostat closes and the cycle will advance.
As the heater has failed, it will never heat and thus, never advance

To be sure you can check the heater with a meter. If its open circuit you will need to replace it.

If you prefer I can get you an all inclusive quote for the repair, I would just need your postcode
