Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Hi I have a Neff built in dishwasher s5453X1GB/70 about 4 years old. Never had a problem before. Came downstairs last night to find the kitchen floor flooded. Water also still in machine. But must have been near end of cycle as plates all clean. I have read other links and opened pump compartment in centre of machine and syringed out all water and cleaned fan. When i switch on machine it is still making odd humming noise (emptying cycle?) I have read about anti -flood valve etc. Any more tip

I have a BOSCH 8280 dishwasher which at the end of its cycle still has soapy water in the bottom of the machine. The dishes, and especially the cutlery, are left smeared and looking unfinished. I lifted out and cleaned the filter in the floor of the machine but the water still doesn't drain away. Are there any other filters etc which may be causing the problem? Any ideas. Thanks.

My bosch excel dishwasher has the following fault: start the cycle, water starts to fill but then check water light comes on and it then starts to empty again. Pump then keeps going. I have checked the hose and even swapped it round with my washing machine one but this makes no difference. I have cleaned all the filters and taken off the cover to check the 'propeller' as sugested in the instruction manual. But no joy - check water light still illuminated and willnot continue with cycle. - Help!!

Hello, I have a problem with our Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher. It starts its cycle OK, draining out any residual water, taking in fresh water and doing the initial rinse. After about 5 minutes it then stops with the "inlet/drain" red light flashing. The detergent is still in the holder and the water is still cold. The filter at the bottom of the compartment is clean, the drain pump spins freely. I've also checked for any leaks in the bottom of the machine that would trip the styrofoam/microsw

I have a 2 year old Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher, and it worked perfect until a few days ago, when it did not wash cleanly and the dishes came out cold. I read a few forums and it seemed to indicate the heating element. So I ordered one a fitted it, but still the water is not getting hot, or drying the dishes after the complete cycle. I have done a visual check of the PCB board, which looks clean and good. No error sounds, and it completes all programs, but with cold water and no drying. W

I have a Bosch SHU43C06UC/14. A few weeks ago it was making a loud terrible noise during the entire cycle. We figured it was on its last leg but it was still cleaning the dishes properly. Then with no explaination the noise stopped and the machine sounded normal again. Today when I started the machine it makes the normal sound when starting but it acts like it is stuck at the beginning and does not fill with water. The timer also does not count down.

We have a Diplomat dishwasher ADP 8242 and its intergrated but have no manual, the machine switches on fine and starts its cycle, i switched it on before going to bed and in the morning it was still running so obviously knew something was wrong, when i opened it the dishes were not clean and there was water in the bottom which took a while to drain away, also the salt inlet is full of water, should it be like that? Any advice would be great thank you.

Hi, I get a problem reading " E4". I have now switched the machine off and on again, but still it says the same. Incidentally the machine has already pumped the water out, so the 'overfill" is actually not supposed to be a problem. It is KELVINATOR EXTREME CLEAN DISHWASHER, model KD14SS. Please help, how am I to get rid of this problem, I really do not have the time nor the money to get outside help! Anita Kleynhans

Hi, The machine will not complete a cycle. I think it may have started when the power was turned off at the mains during a cycle. Symptoms are : - You can turn machine on, select a program, press start button, close door, machine appears to begin cycle as normal, water seems to load, then 2 minutes later drains, and 1 minute or so after that the machine beeps 3 times to indicate cycle is finished. Dishwasher tablet door never opens, dishes not cleaned. Have tried : - cleaning filters; - turn

New dishwasher (Beko 2542F slimline model). Put it on for 1st time last night -when I got up this morning, the cycle which should have taken just over 2 hours hadn't finished. There's soapy water in the bottom of the machine which hasn't drained and the "wash" light is still on. Looks like the dishes are clean but hasn't moved onto the rinse/dry part. Followed instruction in manual to drain it (hold start stop button till lights flash and should drain in 45 sec) but nothing happened.

My Miele dishwasher (G 856 SC) is about 9 years old and has begun stopping in the washing cycle. The pump still drains the water when I reset but it no longer finishes the wash.

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 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".

I have a 13 month old (Thanks Sears warranty!) Kenmore Portable Dishwasher Model 665.17769. It drains poorly, taking 2-3 times after load is completed running thru the ''cancel/drain'' cycle to clean it out. It is not getting dishes clean either, presumambly because the dirty water isn't being flushed out at cycle end and instead of rinsing with fresh water, it's still screwing with the dirty water. Manual doesn't offer any advice except to see if the hose is kinked (it isn't). I made sure nothi

I bought a used GE Triton XL d/w with no manual. It worked great but now it is not cleaning anything, when the cycle is over the soap cup is open but half of the soap is still inside of the cup.

It's like water is spraying everywhere but the door where the cup is!
