Question Ariston AF250 Dishwasher always draining

When I turn the dishwasher on the water starts to come in from a shower head type disk on the top of the left wall inside the dishwasher, it trickles down onto the floor and then through the filter in the floor and straight out throught the drain hose. I have tried turning the power off and filling the floor with water from a saucepan, then turning it on to see if it will pump the water to the arms, but when i turn it on it just drains all the water out. Once the water has drained it sounds like a coffee perculater so i can only assume that the damn thing is stuck in drain mode. Can anyone suggest any possible diagnosis.

Hi hawkbmw,
- I've never heard of that make, but you obviously have a drain valve that's stuck open. Withdraw the machine and lay it on it's back . Look in the area the drain hose joins thw tub base. There may be a spring operated or solenoid operated valve there. Look for broken or missing springs, or remove solenoid and bench test it.

Do it Right - Do it once.
