Neff Dishwasher Hi, I read your solution to the dreaded '1 minute' light - exactly the same happening on my S5457. To help me out a bit, which side of the dishwasher did you have to remove? Regards Al

Hi,

The offending parts are on the left hand side of the machine (viewed from the front). You need to remove a screw (or two?) at the back top edge of the side panel which will then lift upwards and come off.

Before I did my fixit I phoned Neff service (actually BSH appliance care) who quoted me £60.50 for the first half hour then £45/hour plus parts or £159 for 12 months parts and labour. A bit of a no brainer! Anyway, I provisionally booked a service call but said I would call back to confirm.

2 days later I still had the machine pulled out and the panel off because I was testing it. Phone rings - service engineer to say he's on his way. Thought he may as well look at it anyway. He said I'd done exactly what he would have done except he'd have used new part instead of cleaning out the original. He even cancelled the call off his system so no call out charge!! He also told me that 1 minute on the timer display is actually an error code not the actual time left.

Be warned - after the fix I ran the machine on a rinse cycle - completed ok. Put it on an auto wash cycle and it stuck with 1 minute to go! Much swearing and cursing!!
However all subsequent washes have been fine and it has now been working properly for several weeks.

I took some photos whilst I was doing the repair - I can email them to you if you want.

Hope the above makes sense - good luck.

Dishwasher door will not close properly


usually d/w doors are fine for long time.
1. check if anything blocks it to close securely e.g. the cutlery basket or the dish racks not fully sliding in or may be off track/chanel.
2. try running a cycle empty and see if it closes after doing #1.

I have a s5443 neff dishwasher no lights coming on and nothing happening. fuses ok in scockets


could be your mains surpressor or main board on the appliance. check for continuity from the plug to the board if you have it then it is not the surpressor it will be the board. if it is the board you need to find what part has caused the board to blow

hope this helps

I have a Neff S54M45XOGB dishwasher and it has stopped working. It stopped 1/2 way through a programme. There was also a buzzing noise comming from around about the on/off button. I have tried to restart...


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. This issue can be either due to a faulty door latch or door lock switch which is not engaging itself. And, if the door latch will not engage the dishwasher will sense it as open door and will not start the cycle. The light also blinks when the dishwasher detects a no-fill condition. You’ll need to get access to the fill valve by removing left panel, look at back to see where valve is when you get to it remove one of the wires and set meter to ohms setting and put a lead on each tag on valve. The reading you should be about 3.6k ohm if you don’t get a reading then the valve is at fault. I'll also suggest you to check the detergent dispenser solenoid for this issue. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Our Neff S5454x1/21 dishwasher has occasionally stopped/stuck


Looks like the heater unit has packed up.

I cannot seem to find the actual model you have anywhere on the internet. But I am assuming you connect the dishwasher to cold water inlet and it is meant to have a heater.

Are you in UK or Europe. Bosch also makes parts for the NEFF dishwasher but I am not able to find spare parts for your exact model.

Please post a comment.

Neff dishwasher continually draining


Update to my problems. It is now working. I removed the T20 tork screw housing the pump cover which is situated underneath the filter. I used a sponge and siringe to remove all water. And started the dishwasher a few times to spin the pump and flickout any excess water. I noticed some small bits of food which were removed and I cleaned all filters and put it back together. It didnt work staright away but the pump was not comong on as soon as the door was shut anymore. I did a reset and then selected a rinse programme and voila it worked! Tried a full wash cycle last night and it all seemed to be working fine......

Fitting a new front panel to the NEFF 54432 integrated dishwasher


My Neff integrated dishwasher has two holding screws in the top corners and then two hidden screms half way down the side behind plastic covers. Loosen these side screws, remove the top two corner screws and then the door cover/panel should lift out of two lugs at the bottom.

Hi there.

Check salt and rinse-aid levels first. Often there is an indicator if either of these falls below a level.

When was the last time you filled them?

Top up rinse aid to mark, and add at least 1kg of salt.
Run M/c on a quick cycle and see if it's back to normal.

Hope this helps you.
