Problem with dishlex dx302

We get error P10. Manual says it's a problem with water inlet filter. Programme stops running and bleeps and P10 flashes. I guess it's not filling up properly but if you press programme again it will restart for another 10 mins before the same problem occurs. Cannot locate this filter even though we have looked underneath, at the back and inside. Help.

    P10 alrams activates after approx 5 - 7 mins operation. Restart will continue to fail around same time. Checked water in line filters just the ones connected to the actual water supply and where it enters the unit. Next step cap off water supply remove the until to investigate underneath. If no Joy Dump here I come!

I know what the problem is.

The 10 error relates to a water inlet problem. In my case the water was going in, but after about a minute it would display the error code and beep.

I knew the computer would sense for the incoming water and if it doesn't sense the water entering I assumed it goes into the error. There are two water pressure switches near the wash cavity base on the right side (looking from the front) which do the sensing. Each has a hose going from the switch to the sump at the bottom of the wash cavity.

At first I checked each pressure switch with a multimeter. I removed each hose from the sump andI gently blew into each hose while watching the multimeter. An audible click can be heard and the meter showed the switch closed indicating both pressure switches were OK.

Next I reconnected each hose to the sump and removed the other end from each pressure switch. A gentle blow into each revealed one hose connection to the sump was blocked. The blockage prevents the water level from activating the pressure switch at the appropiate time. The other sump hose connection was OK.

With an air compressor I blew compressed air back up the hose and into the sump on the blocked side. I lay the dish washer onto the left side to make it easier and to ensure the blockage would not remain in the sump when blown out. A clump of food scum was cleared from the sump with the compressed air.

Put it all back together and I don't need to wash by hand again and I have one happy wife.

Bosch S9G1B dishwasher doesn't fill with water


The valve will not energize if the float is up at the limit. Sometimes a bit of soapscum can leave the float in the up position. When this happens no water is allowed into the chamber. Move the float up and down and clean the travel using a bleach spray.

Diplomat dishwasher ADP 8322 - previously not draining but neither was the sink and I've unblocked that which is now working fine. When I put it on it bleeps continuously after about 5 minutes


Hello Simon,

No water in the tub would indicate the drain is clear (unless it never filled at all...have you confirmed? Do you hear water leaving the unit?).

Those bleeps and flashing lights are of course the machines desperate effort to tell you it's problems and the code may be in the owners manual or a call to the manufacturer.

I'm a big one for checking grunge accumulation and would ensure the discharge hose is clear. This gets back to hearing water leaving the machine. You may need to pull the unit to check the hose, although a common blockage is right at the connection to your disposal.

Also, check for debris under the filter screen in the bottom of the tub, another place detritus accumulates.

All the best.

I have a adg7560/1. the cycle starts but ends after a few minutes. the light flashes four times


Run the dishwasher through a test mode


Test Mode


Make sure the appliance is empty of water before running Diagnostics as it does not pump out before starting to fill and therefore you could overfill the appliance.
Open the door and set the program to the first program. (Normally rinse).
Turn the power off.
Press and hold the start button and while holding turn the power on.
After a little while the start button will flash, release the button.
Press the start button once and close the dishwasher door.
The machine will now run through a diagnostic routine.
Should take about 20 mins.
The machine will stop during diagnostics if an error is found and will display the error code. If no error is found it will complete the diagnostics and end the programme.

To exit diagnostics at any time just press and hold the start button till the programme is cancelled

My Diplomat dishwasher ADP8352 keeps stopping


Switch off the machine at your plug end and switch ON.

Check incoming water flow. Check and fill rinse-aid liquid in the dispenser. Check dish washer salt dispenser and fill.

These are the only actions an user can try.

Optima G2430 Miele dishwasher with intake/drain flashing light


Hi,
F13 is an inlet fault.
First the unit drains and then fills with water. When the unit has intially drained open the door and manually fill the unit with water, about 5lts. This will then allow the dishwasher to go to the next step which is to circulate the water. If this works ok then the water tap is defective, water inlet valve is defective or the electronic unit is not sending the signal to activate the valve. The water inlet valve is the white square box attached to the tap. Remove this and check the filter and make sure water comes out of the tap.If ok then remove the bottom panel of the unit under the door. On the right hand side there is a 2 core cable with a male and female connector. Unplug this and check for voltage from the electronic when the unit goes to fill with water. If there is 240v then the electronic is ok. You will then need a new waterproof system from Miele.

Powder not dissolving drain/inlet light sometimes flashes


I would guess the detergent door is open and the powder comes out so, If water is going in then the pump is not pumping.

Listen for the water to fill then after it stops open the door to make sure it's full of water. If no water or not enough then replace the water valve. If you have water then the pump is not pumping.
