Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The "water inlet fault" message is showing up on my Asko 3530 dishwasher. We have taken off the inlet hose and it is clear. What else should we try?


Answers :

That is a faulty or clogged inlet valve, or a water level floater stuck down inside the machine.

First ensure that water is flowing regularly through the inlet hose. If you find nothing in there, then the thing to do is accessing to the inlet valve and testing it. Also check the water level floater is not stuck.
The inlet valve is tested by reading voltages, reading continuity, and physically checking if it is closed.
If it turns out that inlet valve is fine, water level is fine, there is no blockage and water supply is fine. Then only in that case test and eventually replace timer board.

Smeg diswasher model numbe4r DF612SDX. Just coming up for two years old, various codes re error messages. E2, E5, E8. We have taken off the front panel where the buttons are - nothing obvious. We have taken the bottom off and tried to locate a reset button, but can't find one. We have cleared all the filters inside and checked the water intake and the filter there. Out of ideas, can anybody else suggest what we can try?

Dishwasher stench It's BAD. I had the dishwasher guy out - there's nothing in the filter. He said everything was fine - run shome dishwasher cleaner thru it. We tried that - no good. I looked online and saw there should be a loop in the hose (there was not). I got that taken care of. That guy said run some bleach thru it after and we'd be fine. I did. Still stniks. It's okay right after we run it, but gets skanky in about 2 days after running. I had another plumber today for something else. he s

Our Asko 3530 dishwasher is giving us a 'water inlet fault' code. The machine goes through the pre-drain at cycle start then begins to fill, continues until it's full then kicks out the fault code. I have changed the inlet valve, reset the system to factory default and taken off the lower front panel, finding the overflow area to be dry. Is it time to call for service or is there something else to try before spending the big bucks?


Hi,This sounds like either the overflow sensor or the water control valve is stuck.Usually the valve is a solenoid valve that controls the entrance and fill of the water. If the overflow sensor is underneath, there may be wate ... Asko 24 in. D3530FI Built-in Dishwasher

I have an Electrolux dishwasher model ESF489, and I can't get water to go into it.the water goes as far as the machine then the inlet hose just pressurises up.I know the hose is clear .The machine tries to go through its cycles but because the water will not flow,it just cuts out after a few seconds.????


Assuming the control card is working ok, the most likely problem is the water inlet valve which may have a faulty solenoid. Do you not get any indication of beep or fault lights on the dishwasher.\015\012You can find a possible replacement at ... Electrolux Dishwashers

I just had a Haus slimline dishwasher delivered and have tried to set it up. I have followed the instructions to the letter but the water inlet hose keeps leaking out water when you move the dishwasher into place after attaching the hoses. I have tried the manufacturer's hose they provided and two spare i have in my cupboard. I even went out and bought some 3/4" washers and added extra washers to the inlet hose, but it still leaks. What is wrong?


It is possible the dishwasher inlet is set for low water pressure.\015\012\015\012Check the water pressure setting matches your inlet water pressure.\015\012It might help if you provide the model number of the dishwasher. ... Dishwashers

Disposal plugged up and water backed up into dishwasher. Cleared disposal and dishwasher drain line. Checked around sump but dishwasher won't pump out. Sounds like pump is trying to run. I can blow air through the drain hose from the disposal and get bubbles in the water. Turned off breaker for 1 min. then tried reset. Can hear pump humming.


The pump is humming because its still trying to get all the water out of the unit. Deinstall the dishwasher and pull the entire dishwasher out from under your cabinet. Next step would be to disconnect the drain line from the drain pump and check to ... Dishwashers

Our Asko D1796 dishwasher has all lights flashing and is displaying a F2 message, which according to the good book means there is too much water in the machine.

There is no eidence of water in the machine. Can anyone help? Thanks. Alan


Hi Alan,\015\012\015\012The F2 on Asko means it's sensed an overfill, that in itself though can be provoked by a couple of thing's. First, check for blockage at the end of the drain hose where it connect's to your household plumbing, be it under the ... Asko D1796FI Built-in Dishwasher
