Hi :) We have a Bosch slimline dishwasher type SRS56A02 GB/08 - it doesn't draw in water - the timer counts down but nothing happens. We checked these pages and cleaned the filters on the inlet water line but no change :( I saw that it might be the inlet water valve - is this easy to get to - do we need to take off panels? if so, is there a manual available please? Over the past week or so it had got noiser - it was at its quietest while the water was draining out of the machine.

Hi can you help me please I have a Zanussi DX6453 dishwasher which has stopped working. Having used the diagnostic facility it has come up with anti flood device, I have done the usual rocking the machine back and forth no sign of water. I have taken the machine apart and looked at the anti flood switch and this is bone dry and by lifting the float you can hear the switch clicking on and off.

Stored for a year. i changed the spark plug and the fuel. i also cleaned the carb. water runs through the pump. but it wont stay running. it wants to start but only runs for a few seconds. i think it might be a fuel flow problem but im not sure.


Sounds like the float my be partially stuck closed. It allows enough fuel to run a few seconds then the engine uses it faster than the float lets the fuel back in. I would remove the float bowl and flip the float up and down a few times to make sure ... Honda Pressure Washer PSI 3000

Bci450 My dishwasher has been always giving me lots of trouble. It is the BCI450 model from hotpoint. Whenever it reaches the washing stage for steam, it seems to beep alot. Many times they replaced the Circuit board but this problem comes back after 2 months. What could be the reason this is caused? Today they replaced the rubber thinking that water vapour might be reaching the circuit. I got this repaired about 7 times already and each time they replaced the circuit board.

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher doesn't wash dishes properly. I think that it is not getting enough water in the machine. It only allows about an inch of water to get into machine and then starts. I do not think that there is enough water to spin wash arms. I have 40 PSI coming into the house. I am on well water and found debris in the intake orfice. I did my best to flush. Could it still be bad?

FDB105OREC4 My dishwasher is not cleaning my dishes. I push the start button and water seems to be trickling in then it stops and no sounds protrude from the machine for several minutes. Eventually another loud motor seems to turn on and drain the water out of the machine. The soap dispenser usually opens and the soap block that usually dissolves is setting on the bottom of the machine. It seems the water is plenty hot but the rotating washer arms might not be moving.

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 ?

Miele 646 sc plus inlet tank solonoid valve on water tank leaking. We moved the machine from one room to another and now this valve is squirting out water. We replaced both door seals thinking that was the problem, then started the machine with a side pannel removed, and saw the jet of water coming from the solonoid valve on the water inlet tank. Any ideas.

Our bosch dishwasher runs but no water is spraying on the inside. Is there a water filter clean out or is there a water pump that might be broken? I checked the line coming in and it isn't plugged. I made sure where the stainless line goes into the electric valve that it wasn't plugged to that point. I could see anywhere else to check if it was plugged. I figure there has to be a water pump, but I guess I'm not sure of that either. Thanks for any help..

I have a Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a


The E4 error message could be because the water pressure is too low rather than too high. Can you let me know the exact model number of your dishwasher and I should be able to tell you more.\015\012\015\012Regards,\015\012BElectric ... Dishwashers

Maytag mdb9150 dishwasher stopped at some point last night--found it this morning with flashing lights--I think "clean" and "heated dry", not sure.  I used "drain/off" to make sure there was mechanical noise--there was, so I don't think the machine is dead.  Purchased on 2001 with 5 year warranty, so out of luck there.  I tried turning off the electricity to the unit for a few hours; nothing improved.  When you start it (or think you have!) it makes noises for about a minute that sound promising

Depending on your dishwasher, it fills either by a timer or by a water probe or float. I will assume its a timer as a probe or float wouldnt exhibit this behaviour. I would say you have a restriction in your water supply line. Check your valves, an ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

Hi, Dishwasher problem: When a programme starts, the machine fills with water then stops and the "check water" light comes on. To empty the machine, I used the reset programme which does empty the machine. Any ideas of about what might be causing and the solution to this? Many thanks, Richard


You will need to check the inlet valve and the water level pressure switch. It can also be a low pressure in the pump that is giving out the signal for the control board to shut off.\012So first of all check the water line throughly to confirm. ... Bosch 24 in.

Hobart LX30 Hey I just bought a Hobart Lx30 and we don't have a power source that can handle the 50 amp requirement. We got it at an extremely good price so we are trying to work around it. I was told that disconnecting the water heater would allow it to work in a standard 120 volt outlet. I did that and now I have another issue. The machine wont run unless the water is 160 degrees. How do i disconnect the sensor that restricts the temp so that I can run the machine at a lower temp?


Hopefully you took the suggestion to run the correct 50 amp 208-240 service to the unit.Converting the unit to an LX30C has a couple of pitfalls. The LX30C is connected directly to the incoming water supply, which should run 120-140 degre ... Hobart 24 in. LXIH-3 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a JDB1090AWS about 3 years old. We noticed a smell and found cutting boards and plastic cups melted. Machine was off. Had to turn off the breaker. Checked both leads to element & have power even with machine off. Not sure if it could be the limiting thermostat; I assume that is to shut the heat down when it gets too hot. Element is on though when it shouldn't be to begin with. I did have to tighten the water supply. Had some water underneath, but all wires seemed dry. Any tests I should t

Hi there I have a Miele G663 scvi dishwasher. The inlet/outlet light is flashing. I have cleaned the non return valve and filter at the bottom of the machine. I have also removed the water inlet pipe which has a large filter on at the end where it attaches to the water pipe. I have blown through this pipe and it is quite difficult to get air through. Do you think it is a filter that is blocked? If this is the case are they easy to attach to the bottom or the machine or would I have to get
