I learned that my wife and son had pulled the dishwasher out of its slot to clean behind it.

They found it did not work when pushed back.

Once I learned the history I removed the base panel and discovered they must have stretched the cable between the sensor and the switch and in so doing had pulled a spade connector from its terminal.

Repair was simply to re-connect the spade.

Dishwasher Does not Fill Past First Rinse


There is an anti flood valve on the bottom of the unit. IT could be sticking or have a bad connection. IT should look like a dome shaped housing on the bottom of the tub. If that is not the problem then you are looking at further troubleshooting to see if it is the contoller.

Bosch Integrated Dishwasher pumps even when open


Some dishwashers have a fill level float switch inside the main part. This may be the anti-flood mechanism to which you refer.

Water is not being taken in on our candy Aquaviva CD 623 dishwasher


First check and see if there is plenty of water coming into the machine by examining the fill hose inself.
You likely will have to disconnect that hose, not at the machine end, the sink end.
Then, find a way to test the wires to the fill valve, should likely be 110 volts when the machine starts, allowing the fill valve to open.
A volt-ohm meter will tell you, set it to over 110 volts on the A.C. setting.
If no power to the fill valve, you may be facing a new timer.
Be blessed.

I just bought a dishwasher SE34E200SK. The washing program always gets stuck in program 3 and it cant move further unless one has to turn it manually. Also it doesnot empty out the waste water after...


Hello

Most faults can be referred to the fact that the Anti Flood Overflow device has activated.

Modern day dishwashers like those manufactured that have a built in safety feature protecting the dishwasher against flooding. The technical term is 'Anti Flood Device'.

In the base of the dishwasher in the plinth there is a float switch. This is your 'Anti Flood Device'. In the event of your dishwasher over filling, the plinth fills with water, the float rises and actuates the switch.

Firstly, it will send a signal to the programmer device to notify there is a fault and output a message in the form of a code to some sort of display.

Secondly, the pressure switch acts as the water level indicator for the sump of the dishwasher so when the water level rises the pressure switch will activate the drain pump.

So before you consider throwing good money at new dishwasher, try doing a bit of fault finding your self and you might save yourself a ton of money.

THE anti flood device has been activated. I have emptied the salt tank, how do I reset the safety valve on the water inlet hose?


The answer is that you don't reset the anti-flood device. The anti-flood device re-sets itself when there is no risk of a leak. I don't really understand why you emptied the salt tank . . . ?

I cannot help you any further than this as you haven't specified your brand and model of dishwasher. If you can post these, I will try try to help further - if it's a model I support.

My bosch dishwasher does not fill with water (although it drains)


most bosch have the inlet valve at the end of the fill pipe and it has an anti-flood device.
try turning off the water, take off the fill pipe then reconnect it and see if this works.
taking off the fill pipe resets the anti-flood device
