Siemens dishwasher sn65mo31gb/03

Has been working until today.
KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

How old is it ?

Customer: Sorry, I don't know.
KevinWhiteJA :

ok is it stuck on rinse or eco wash or wash ?

Customer: On rinse. It should have done a wash, but only rinsed
KevinWhiteJA :

ok, it seems something is stuck in the base where drain pump is and so it wont work

KevinWhiteJA :

with the dishwasher unplugged, take it out and lay it on its back with around 45 degrees

KevinWhiteJA :

after this plug it back and check if it works

KevinWhiteJA :

if it wont then you will have to remove the base of the unit and clean the drain pump

Customer: My daughter in law cleaned out the waste basket in the bottom yesterday and said it was full of water. Does that help?
KevinWhiteJA :

yes but you have to clean the drain pump completely and also check for a possible leak inside the base that might be causing this issue

Customer: I cannot unplug as it is not visible and I also have a disability so cannot move the dishwasher out
KevinWhiteJA :

well then its better to wait because I wont recommend cleaning it while it is still plugged in

Customer: Will remove the basket and check the bottom of the machine to see if there is anything obviously blocking it.
KevinWhiteJA :

ok...You can get back to me if you need any assistance and I will help with no additional charges

Customer: Thank you. Then I will wash it all by hand and leave it for my son to call out an engineer when they are back. (There is a lot of washing up for a family of five!).
