Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Anti flood device has activated on my zanussi ZDF231,also there is quite aloud whirring sound ,like a motor struggling to work


Answers :

The anti flood activates when water (even a small amount) appears on the bottom of the machiene. This is usualy a leaking pipe but can also be caused by a clogged pipe. Most machiens do have a plastic pipe that (from the flat water tank) feeds water to the bottom of the machiene in case of an internal fault. The anti flood is normaly a polystireen float with micro switch on the base of the washer. This automatically puts the outlet pump on to drain the water.

My Dishwasher stopped working. When I switch it on there is a sound like a motor running, a kind of whirring sound. It sounds as if the machine is working normally but there is no water coming through it. Any ideas? Thanks, Paul


Hi There,\015\012\015\012That's the classic sign of water having leaked under the washing compartment/tub. This causes a "float" to rise, tripping the micro-switch which activates the anti-flood protection. This closes the water inlet val ... Bosch 24 in.

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 630.17303406) and it just stopped working. Doesn't drain what's left in the bottom and just makes a humming sound when turned on. Power is good, sounds like the motor is working. Doesn't seem like it is drawing water in. I want to check the pump and motor, anybody have any advice?


If nothing obvious like blocked / obstructed outlet pipe\015\012You need to check if the outlet pump motor in line with the outlet hose is spinning when in the outlet mode. First check if it is spinning by looking at it and see if the small fan ... Dishwashers

My Maytag Quiet Series 200 is making loud noises. It appears to be continuing the cycle. When we stop and start the washer, it sounds like the motor is working hard (high pitched sound). It sounds serious. I'd like to troubleshoot myself if possible. Also, what is the criteria for an 8 year old washer when it comes to the decision of fix vs buy new?

Hi, I have an AEG Favorit 525 dishwasher. It's over 20 years old, but has a panel on the front which matches the kitchen and it has done stirling service over the years. Lately, the knob has been sticking a bit mid cycle, but it has been intermittent. Last night, although the dishwasher sounds like it is working properly, it is not filling with water. Motor sounds like it is trying, but to no avail. If it was human, I would say prostate issues, but I don't think dishwashers have those. A

I have an older Maytag model #WU482. For some reason it will not drain and will only run using the economy mode. I can hear the timer ticking at all other cycles and it does click between cycles. I recently replaced the drain float and the machine had been working fine after. The motor is working and the belt is good. I think the kids were playing with the timer knob. Could this cause a problem with the timer motor? Or does this sound more like a pump out issue, impeller? I'm thinking its

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom. Also, no normal swishing sound of water when the motor runs in any cycle. Looks to me like a mechanical break in the pump drive. How do I check the pump drive on this model? Do you have any

My Kenmore Dishwasher 665.16359301 quit working. I flipped off the breaker then back on again. The cancel light comes on and it sounds like its going to drain but theres no water in it. After about 20 seconds it stops and the normal wash cycle light starts blinking. Thats it. I did the reset procedure and it started to work then went back to the normal wash light blinking.

My maytag dishwasher lower and upper spray arms are working intermittently. Sometimes there is plenty of water spraying around, other times, I can hear what sounds like the motor running but the arms are not moving (or not moving much) and very little water is splashing around. When this happens, the detergent sometimes doesn't even get washed out of its compartment.

I have an electric power washer model PW181000AV with about 25 hours on it. Got home from my winter retreat and used the power washer about 1/2 hour on the driveway. Everything worked fine. Went to complete the job the next day, and the motor would not power on. No sounds at all, like it wasn't getting electricity.

Hello, I've been working on a Bosch Dishwasher. It has no display of any kind, and there's a strange grunting sound coming from the wash motor when power is applied (like if you had just plugged it in), as if it's trying to start. The junction box is getting 120V, all connections to the junction box are fine, and the display board and the main control board are all getting the proper voltage. Now, we've already replaced the main control board and the problem persists. The tech line suggested

Newer dishwasher and actuaslly says in manual do not be alarmed if you cannot hear dishwasher as it is very quiet. Well mine is the exact opposite. It is so loud. Sounds like the motor is in overload. Anyone else have this issue. Just moved into home and was quite alarmed at noise factor when we turned it on.


I would suspect there is something stuck in either your wash motor or drain pump. If the noise happens throughout the whole cycle, it's likely the wash motor, but if it only happens on start up and periodically thoughtout the cycle, it's the drain p ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher
