Afternoon all.
My DW686 Beko integrated dishwasher is only 4 years old and it sticks on the pumping hot water cycle shorting out the heating element before attempting to go again every 30seconds. The code I get on diagnostics is IFT (is this intermittent fault?). I have swapped the pump, synchronous valve and heater element individually but the same problem occurs. I have checked all pipes for blockages that I can access as it sounds as though it tries to pump water but nothing is coming through the spray arms. I've checked all those and they are clear. Is it an electrical short or pressure differential problem? It fills up and drains fine.
Thanks

 Dishwasher spray arm broken?

If your dishwasher isn't washing as well as it should then your spray arms may be blocked or faulty resulting in the dishwasher not cleaning as it should. You can buy replacement spray arms and associated spare parts from our store to fit all major makes including AEG, Beko, Hotpoint, Smeg and many more

Do check carefully when ordering spray arms as while many may look the same they might well not be, if you are unsure please email to ask for assistance and we'll find it for you

spray arms for most dishwashers including popular makes like Hoover, Zanussi, Smeg, Diplomat, Bosch and many more

It was the wires that run under the door hinge in a plastic sleeve. An earth and a black wire had been cut by the hinge causing a short in the sequence. Fixed and protected the rest of the wires from further damage. All works fine now, but be careful if you're doing it, as all the edges are sharp. Poor design, no wonder the wires were severed.
