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. When I reassemble the fault is still there I'm begining to think the switch is faulty but not sure, do

Smeg e2 error (water level tripped). Filter is clean and no rubbish below filter on inside of dishwasher. I have taken the front panel off but am not sure where the float device is located - I am wondering if it is just to the left of what looks like a solenoid. There is no water in the base of the unit in the front panel so would rule out any leaks. Reset program and turned off power at socket but still not using hot water. Possible PCB issue ? Any advice appreciated. Smeg DI612C Dishwasher.

What does a failed pressure switch look like? I have removed my pressure switch (part 8071024). It is clean without apparent damage. The point at which the small, black hose connects has a plastic "button" inside, which appears as if it should move but it does not move at all. Is it seized? I think my issue is very similar to issue "Dishwasher Flooding Out" article on your site from (Oct 2007). This is a very helpful site, and thank you for any input on this question.

I have a slimline dishwasher from Ikea. The model is Whirlpool DWH C10 W manual. Everything worked fine up until the other day when I switched the machine on and it made a noise as if it was working but nothing happens. No water comes into the washer although inlet pip looks fine. I have poured water in and it is drained okay but the dishwasher is not cleaning dishes. After checking through numerous forum and reading about a flood prevention switch which can be sorted by tipping the d

My dishwasher is beeping 5 times with a pause in between, I can't get it to do anything now, each time I switch it on it just beeps at me. In the manual it says that the 'flood switch' has been activated, I' not sure why, or even what this is, but I'd really like to deactivate it.

I have an Ariston LS245 dishwasher, have just had the pump replaced, as it had shorted out, due to water in the bottom tray where the water detection float is, also a new drain hose fitted. Have just run a wash and after running a while, presumably to the end of the rinse, wash and dry cycle, then one of the cycle phase lights, the one for 'soak' blinks constantly. I switched the machine off and had a look to see if a wash had been done, the dishes look clean. In the book it says that if one

Dishwasher malfunction I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard 3 dishwasher. One day, I found it with a blinking green ?clean? light. I went online to search for the manual, almost impossible to locate. Found a website where another using said to hit a 4 button sequence of ?heated dry? ?normal wash? ?heated dry? and normal wash. After this sequence, all lights went on and something that looked almost like a ?demo? sequence began (not sure now what that was). I hit ?cancel/drain? and it proceeded

I have a Miele 24 in. G638 Plus Free-standing Dishwasher which is leaking into the pan underneath the machine (and triggering the polystyrene float switch) I am almost certain that the leak is coming from the main pump seal. Is it feasible to replace the seal (it looks like a major job to take the pump assembly apart). I guess Miele labor charges would make the repair not worthwhile Is there a service manual for this machine. I guess I would need it

I have a Fridgidaire Dishwasher, supplied new in a home purchased in 2004. Model FDB126RBB1. During the last two weeks I've been seeing a heavy scum on everything which will show it easily, like plastic glasses. No food particles or anything of that nature, just not getting clean. Sure that it's on all the rest, but can't see it so well. I've heard such a thing can be caused by a faulty inlet valve. Where is that and how do I test for it? Are there any other reasonable places to look for a

The inside of the dishwasher used to sparkle & clean the dishes very good, now the dishes look dirty & inside looks dull with a white film. I have tried cleaning filters & taking arms offs to check for blockage, making sure the Jet Dry dispenser is properly filled, the hose going to the dishwasher does not appear to be kinked, how would I check inside the dishwasher to see if it's kinked there? Do you have any other suggestions? please help!!!!

My 5-year old Bosch dishwasher leaves a somewhat fine grit on dishes? especially obvious on the inside of glasses. I use only Cascade detergent, use a rinse aid, don't overfill the machine, and always make sure that the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher is clean. I also make sure that the spinner is able to move freely. But, after all of that, I sometimes get very clean dishes; even more often, not. I see no rhyme or reason. I am presently looking at an entire load that has gone through


I have the same problem with mine!! It's 6 years old, and I'm running loads of dishes through twice. Even that doesn't help!

I have a Whirlpool Gold (Quite Partner) Dishwasher that is about 9 years old. I was using a liquid gel Dishwasher liquid and it has been working fine. After I switched to a Cascade Action Pads (solid powder pallets), its detergent dispenser did not open during the wash cycle. I cleaned the dispenser and switched back to liquid gel. Now the detergent dispenser (that looks clean and fine otherwise) has stopped opening during the wash cycle. What's wrong and what can be done? I can be contacted

My dishwashing isn't filling properly. I think there is residue on the float "thingy" (located on the bottom right side close to the door) and it doesn't float like it should, so the dishwasher thinks the water level is correct when it isn't.

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

I have a GE black panel dishwasher. I am having trouble cleaning the panel. It looks like cleaner has dripped down it but no matter what I use it never looks any better. The panel sounds like hard plastic and is in perfectly good shape. It just looks bad. I've tried soap and water and other cleaners but nothing helps.


There is a cheap way to replace the panel and that is on applianceart.com. They have replacement panels and covers, and even stainless steel. ... GE GSD53 Dishwasher

The dishwasher doesn't seem to have nearly enough water in it. The upper sprayer arm doesn't seem to be spinning when running (I open the door and look really quick) and the lower one looks like it barely spins and barely sprays water. The dishes are barely wet and the soap is just laying on the bottom. The water is on, there are no kinks in the supply line. It sounds like it is running, and pumps pumping, but being brand new I am not sure what it should sound like. It certainly doesn't sound li

My sink got clogged and now my bosch dishwasher SHU43C05UC wont fill with water. I read on line that it most likely is the float is stuck and to access the front kickplate needs to be removed. Is there a diagnostic test that I can do that will display on the LED to make sure that this is the problem. How involved is it to unstick the float. Can it be done without moving the dishwasher and just working from the kickplate area?
