Having problems with your Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher ?

After a short while fault code AL01 appears. I have removed the base tray to check the "anti-flood" swithch and that is OK, even with the switch disconnected, I still get AL01. Any ideas?

I think I need to check the water pump/motor on my Bosch SHU43C dishwasher. It seems the water enters at the start of the wash cycle but then there is silence through the remainder of the cycles. Water will not spray. The drain appears to work ok to drain most of the water out. I have the washer out and upside down. Any hints on removing the base to get access to the pump? Should AI be looking at the control panel also for a fault? (the cycles seem to count down ok)

SHX46B I have a 4 year old Dishwasher that filled up with clean water on it's own and leaked on the floor. There appears to ba a float switch switch on the very bottom of the unit that runs the pump if this happens. It won't stop until I remove the water caught in the plastic base on the very bottom of the unit. Drain is clear and this machine has worked fine until now. I'm thinking it may be a bad or leaky fill valve but how can I check?

Bosch Classixx dishwasher: Initially no water feed and 'water check' light came on. Removed side panel, emptied water from base. Ran OK for a week or so. The problem then repeated so side panel removed, float switch operation checked (OK) drained water from sump below polystyrene float. Ran OK but contents came out dirty and cold - no heat. Side panels off again, water in base but no obvious leak when watched during cycle - still no heat. Help please.

Hi I have a Siemens SE26T252GB/01 dishwasher which won't drain. (The "check water" light comes on). I have checked all the filters/drains and I think the fault is the drain pump which I would like to replace. I can remove the side panels but cannot remove the base to get access to the pump. Can someone help with instructions or a diagram please? Many thanks

I have a Bosch Dishwasher, Model SHE46C06UC. No mater what cycle I start it in, it simply activates the drain and continues to run without ever starting. Within the last week prior to the dishwasher not working, I noticed a low hum/vibration emitting from the dishwasher. I've clean out the screen and drain filter, removed the pump cover to check for any debris. I've manually added water and it does drain. Additionally, the drain cycle continues to operate even with the door open.


First thing you may want to check is the door switch. You can pull it off and measure the resistance with an ohmmeter. If you get good reading while pushed in and none while switch button is released, then it is a good start. Next, you may want ... Dishwashers

Water is not completely draining, not even close. I've already checked the exit tubing and even found a pumpkin seed lodged near the pump hose. The float switch appears to be not working, I push it down, it stays down. It activates the outflow pump, right? How do you fix or replace the float?

After replacing my garbage disposal, my dishwashr stopped working. I did forget to remove the stop plug from the disposal unit. But even after doing this the unit still does not work. It does turn on but no water drains out. In addition when using the sink it appears that some water may be getting into the dishwasher.

GE Dishwasher model PDW8200J03BB stopped draining. Removed the drain pump, checked with Voltmeter and there is resistance on ohms X10 of about 3. The flap is in place so water isn't shooting back into the sump inlet. Replaced the sump inlet about 6 months ago because it was deteriorated due to hard water. Pump worked fine after that. Checked drain hoses and air gap. Was able to blow water through. Pump only trickles water out at air gap. Does the pump need replaced?


Clear the line from the air gap to the drain,, if the rest is clear the only thing it can be is the propellers on the pump, i which case you will need to change the pump ... GE 25 in. Profile PDW8200J Built-in Dishwasher

Your assistance would be appreciated in this seemingly simple problem. Murray


What has happened is that you have tripped the overflow/anti flood device switch when you upended the machine. You most likely need to empty out the salt container, and to reset the antiflood give the machine a few sideways tips and try to shake fre ... AEG Dishwashers

Water allowed to drain out the front base area. Unit re-assembled but now does not switch on. Water connected. Base-plate dry. No water was detected at upper-front control panel.
