I have a Flavel FDW 45 dishwasher. It has suddenly stopped working. There is a humming noise, like a pump running, but no water enters and the wash cycle never starts.
There is no water in the sump under the filers and and the filters are clean.

about 7 years old. Not the door lock, probably the drain pump humming.
OK, with the dishwasher unplugged pull it out and tip it back by around 45 degrees...clean the base off the dishwasher, plug it if you still hear the hum sound its the drain pump motor that will need replacement
