Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The lamp is flashing and it seems it doesn't pump in any water in the machine


Answers :

Possible failure of the inlet valve or the valve is clogged at the filter end. remove and check inlet line. if flow does not come after valve is triggered, remove clean and reset.
\012Also the main pump can be faulty as it is not able to pump with the desired pressure.
\012check pump for dirt accumulation.

Hi our nemo dishwasher starts a cycle and fills but does not start cleaning cycle. Light under start button flashes. If start button is held on it resets and pumps out. We live in an area with high clacium in water. At first the machine only pumped out and did not start filling. I have cleaned the level sensor ( membrane switch filled with calcium) and it at least stopped pumping and started to fill. It does not proceed from here. I checked the level switch it seems to be working OK (NO and NC c

FDW60 dishwasher Hi My dishwasher is about 15 months old and the problem I have is that it seems to stay on pump and the Ecco45 light is flashing.  A repair company looked at the machine and said that the motor looked like it was leaking and water was getting in the bottom setting off the micro-switch.  He contacted Hotpoint who fitted a new motor today at a cost of £89.85.  Went to use dishwasher tonight and we still have the same problem.  The dishwasher started the washing programme for about

Have a Zanussi 6344 dishwasher, when starting the machine it starts pumping en then stops. When adding water the same problem, starts pumping to drain the water and then stops again ? It drains perfectly, seems the machine thinks there's still water inside, is there some sensor that checks the water level or so ?

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius FDW 20 dishwasher. Prewash and Wash lights were flashing, machine had stopped and water was at the bottom of the machine. What does this indicate? After removing some debris from the water drainage pump, then reassembling the machine, I now get the pre-wash LED flashing and a motor operating, but no futher progress into the wash cycle. What does this mean?

Asko dw20 pump keeps running even with door open and turned off... The machine got to the final cycle then the pump just keeps running and the glass icon (L2) keeps flashing. All the water is not evacuated from the washer. When I power off from the front the drain pump still runs (and water is still not draining). When I power cycle from the mains (waiting 10 seconds) the pump engages again and the water level drops a bit and then stops draining. I have done this until all the water is empty an

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. I have followed the instructions for a normal inlet time but the indicators will not change. Is it trying to tell me the Drain Pump is dead? A new drain pump was fitted three years ago. 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

The washer doesn't pump water in--plumbing water pressure forces it in when the water inlet solenoid opens the valve. Check the water inlet solenoid--they are a common failure point. Look under the front of the washer behind the panel to find it--jus ... GE Dishwashers

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".


Heat that is retained in the dishes is largely responsible for drying\015\012in this dishwasher. Since plastics do not retain heat very well, they\015\012will not dry as well as glasses, ceramics or metal dishes. Rinse aid\015\012must be used so that ... Dishwashers

NEFF S4443 top spray bar not rotating, no water. Bottom spray bar rotates and sprays water. Checked and replaced fine/course mesh filters. Will pump to empty and refill on pre-wash (rinse).

Running without spar bars attached (including mechanism feeding to bar, water is only being forced out of the from outlet. Any ideas before I start taking it apart
