Easy one first try this to see if it helps

Water pre-heating
Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

SOURCE: DISHWASHER- Model no: DW009

I experienced exactly the same problem with this Model. The handbook says code E4 is an overfill problem and in my case because the filter had become blocked, water had somehow found its way into the base of the washer (where all the electrical stuff is) and activated the anti-flood device. The solution is to simply get the water out of the base. Making sure the unit was switched off at the mains, I removed the wooden kick-board from under the kitchen units and the screws securing the washer to the units. I then lowered the 2 front height adjusting legs so that the washer was slightly tilted down at the front. There are 2 black plastic access covers at the bottom of the unit which can be gently prised out and then use a cloth/sponge, removed all the water that had collected in the base. This cured the problem without the hassle of removing the washer altogether.

there is a pressure stat but these are reliable. a common fault is the wiring loom broken where it goes round the corner at the bottom of the door. take outer door panel off and inspect the wiring loom for breakage

SOURCE: AEG DISHWASHER, DOES NOT HEAT WATER.

I had this same problem on our AEG dishwasher. The reason was on the controller board. There is one relay switch which drives the heater element.One of the legs of that relay box was disconnecteds from the circuitboard. Check this out.

Dishwasher powering off


Sounds like the control board alright, but often repairers witll just replace a board without identifying what caused the fault.
There could be a peripheral device that is causing the failure. I would replace the solenoid valve that allows the water to enter the machine and the control board. when the old board is removed it should be thouroughly checked for water marks or corrosion, all connecting cables to the control board should be checked for wear and corrosion and be recrimped if nessesary, when the new board is fitted its anchoring should be checked to make sure that it is very secure. lastly all ground/earth points should be checked.

Often removing the base of the dishwasher can help identify if there is a small leak, remember it onyl takes one drop of salt laden water to cause damage to these control boards.

Hope this helps :)

Adg 3962 IX showing fault code f2 with flashing


The machine has a switch inside that activates when a set amount of water is loaded.
If this switch then breaks (switches off) during the wash the machine assumes that the water has leaked out.
Run it through a couple of washes, check for a leak and see how it goes.
Hopefully it will be fine.
F2 indicates a flooded base.

Press and hold the start button until the start light goes out. (This resets the appliance)
Select a new programme and try the machine again.

If it comes up with a fault F2, take the panel off below the door and check for water in the base.
Be careful when you take the panel off, the exposed edges are razor sharp.
Drain any water in the base, reset and try the machine again and watch for a leak through the inspection panel.

Shortly after turning my indesit idl530 on a fault code appears


the problem you are getting is a f01 fault,this is water in the base part of the antiflood devise.to check this if you tip the appliance backwards and water comes from the back at the bottom this is the problem,if you do this till it stops and then leave for approx 24hrs to dry out any water that may have gone on to motor,then check by switching on to start a program,if appears to work ok but then goes back to the same fault(draining all the time and light flashing)you will have to remove base and check for leaks.

Hotpoint BF1620 Integrated dishwasher not working


Lets try the following hope this works

1.- unplug the appliance, isolate it from the electric supply.
2.- Remove the kitchen unit plinth and check inside the inspection panels below the door to see if there is water in the base.

If there is, sponge it out and then try the machine again.

Dish washer not filling with water when put on


There are a few things that can cause this problem, it could be a defective water inlet valve, it's usually located behind the lower kick plate on the left or right hand side of the dishwasher, When the washing cycle is started it sends voltage to the water inlet valve to open which allows water to enter the machine, or it could be a faulty float switch, when water enters the machine the float switch raises up which signals the water inlet valve to shut off, the float switch is located inside the dishwasher at the bottom, you can check the float switch by raising it up and down to see if it's stuck in the up position. Good luck.

BAUMATIC BFD47SS dishwasher won't start


Sounds like the water inlet solenoid valve is not opening. Not easy to get at to test, but if water is available at the hose inlet connection as you say there isn't anything else stopping water entering the wash cabinet.

Shouldn't be a lengthy repair - so I'd recommend getting a quote.
