Question about Siemens 24 in. SE64A630GB Built-In Dishwasher
I have al
little problem with my siemens dishwasher. After 2-3 minutes it stops working
and if I notice closer I hear a mmmm sound (may be motor blocked!) 2 seconds before it stops.
If i open the door water still at the botom , if I reset pump DOES drains the water.
I think the problem is that thw water does not start spraying!....
I know sounds stupid, but I must ask: Are the water supply valves turned on? Is the water supply pressure good?
A pump usually isn't found on the inlet side. Most such appliances have sediment screens located in the water inlet connections. These will sometimes get blocked with sediment such as lime, for example. Otherwise, you may have a defective controller or defective solenoid. Most units have two solenoids (hot & cold). The solenoids are located at the water inlet hookup (the screen is usually a part of the solenoid). When the washer is started, a metallic click should be heard from the solenoids. Beyond checking the screens and water valves, a repairman should be called in, unless you're skilled with a voltmeter, electrical troubleshooting, and appliance disassembly.
BTW- is this a new installation or has the unit been in service for awhile?

I would check the bottom of the dishwasher to see if there are any bones, old food built up as some of these collection systems have a small disposer built into them.
If you find any food, it's probably that.
Also, you can make sure that the drain line is the proper length and high enough as this is a common problem. Do a good search on proper drain height for dishwasher.
You may run an empty load of dishes with a cup of bleach added to eliminate the odor as well. Bleach will kill any bacteria causing the smell. More than likely the drain hose wasn't installed correctly.

get another hose same diamiter and two hose clamps and a splice nipple from hardware store, cut hose to lenght with some extra insert nipple into both hoses and clamp with hose clamps make sure you get them tight.. use a metal nipple as a plastic one may crack when you clamp hoses

Sprayers require water to pass through the jets to provide motion to the arms.
Remove the sprayer from the machine and look for blockages. (Removal should be easy, at it is expected that the user will need to clean the jets occasionally; If you have any problems removing it, consult your manual).

Testimonial: "Thanks for a speedy and v helpful reply. Sounded obvious, but I hadn't checked the water inlet(which was calcified)just the jets on the arm itself! "
This sounds like its gone into flood mode.
If water is detected in the base of the machine, the pump switches on and stays on to prevent flooding.
Normally to reset you would lean the machine backwards and let the water drain out.
In your case, switch off the mains, remove the lower kick panel. Shine a torch in there and you should see the water. CAREFULLY dry it out and it should reset.
If it does it again, you need to check for leaks.
