Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Optical water indicator (Turbidity Sensor) failure - FA error code

\015 Whirlpool dishwasher ADP 4735 \012\012Optical water indicator (Turbidity Sensor) failure - FA error code\012\012So I did something quite unintelligent the other day - intervened in my dishwasher cycle (poured extra water). Basically blowing the water indicator fuse. So I thought perhaps at least someone may benefit from the information on how to fix the problem, as I did not find a solution online with my google search.\012\012So this is not a question - but rather a way to provide someone else with some information should they face the same problem. The guys came to repair it and took the cover off the dishwasher (starting I think at the top. Then taking the left hand side off (if you are facing the dishwasher the left side). At the bottom near the back is a small fuse type thing which just slips out (like a fuse does). It had blown and they just put a new one in (put in like a new fuse - just slips in). And hey presto....\012I could have done that!!!!\015

Our MDB7100AWQ flashes the light that the troubleshooting sheet says means: "Turbidity sensor fails to find clean water" I cleaned a lot of gunk out of the screens but the code didn't change. Do turbidity sensors get clogged up?

On an AEG Favorit 64570 VI we have an error 20. Manual indicates a drainage problem, however when we pour in water, it gets pumped out without a problem. No obstructing in the exhaust tube. Next we checked the pressure sensor, by taking it out and blowing into it. It clicked as pressure was applied to it, so the inner switch worked. Everything is clean, but still we get an error 20. What does seem strange is that the appliance does not take in water. Any suggestions are welcome.

My asko d3250 thinks the drain hose is blocked. but when i pour water in the dishwasher to see if the water is being drained, the dishwasher is draining properly. Yet the dishwasher after it has drained the water, will shutoff and start flashing the Large Pot icon (drain hose is blocked error code). Is there a sensor that is faulty?


Yes, it sounds like it is to me. I'm not able to pull your model up on my data base,if I could I would be able to tell you where it is located. I would assume that it's located either inside the pump or close to it. Sorry I couldn't be more help. ... Asko Dishwashers

My question is this: once the flood activation switch (F1 error code) has been activated due to water in the tray, will the switch self-set once the lower board area has dried sufficiently, or does it require a board replacement? I have found (I think), and will be correcting the leak, but wanted to make sure the water sensor is healthy or not.

I have an LG dishwasher, model LDS 5811ww. The machine fills with water, then stops filling when the error code IE comes on. I have cleaned the inlet filter and the whole inside of the tub, by taking apart the sump filter. There is good water pressure filling the tank. When I turn off the power and restart any cycle, the pump will empty the tank, then begin filling the tank again...until it is stopped by the error code IE again coming on. The other thing I notice is the water level in the tub.


Sounds like you either have a dirty or faulty water level sensor or water temp sensor. Most likely a dirty or faulty water level sensor ... Dishwashers

My Siemens dishwasher SE65M350EU/70 has an error about once a week: it washes perfect but during the last step (rinsing/drying) it sometimes stops/ continues a number of times and then indicates a low water pressure error. But never during the other steps of the washing cycle. To me this indicates that the water pressure is correct. Any idea?

I have an Asco D3350 dishwasher. When the cycle starts the machine fills with water and when there appears to be the right amount of water in the machine an error code F4 shows on the panel. 3 clicks can be heard during the first 5 seconds of the F4 code showing. If I cancel the cycle and start it again it pumps out the water and then fills again and the code returns. Any ideas?

F1 error code due to water coming over the top of the top drawer at beginning of cycle. Previously, I had this code and followed the instructions found here and resolved the problem (a foreign object had blocked the drain). This is different and I need to find out WHY the water is flowing over the top. Could the top drawer just not be sealing properly when closed?
