the spray arms are free to rotate.
2. Open the water tap fully.

AEG OKO FAVORITE 4070 - AFter not using for a week dishwasher is flashing dry & end together, will not switch off unless turn it off at the power point, there is no water left in the machine.

If the END or DRYING indicator on the programme progress display is flashing, you can probably rectify the fault yourself.
After rectifying an END or DRYING fault, press the button for the wash programme that has been started.
The wash programme continues. If the fault is displayed again, than check water leakage in the battom of dishwasher.

Malfunction: END and DRYING on the programme progress display are flashing simultaneously.
Possible causes: The leak prevention system has been triggered.
Remedy: Try to find and repair water leakage otherwise close the tap and call customer service.

Can I turn the beeper off on the end of the washcycle on the DDY062 Hoover dishwasher. I want to put it on timer delay and dont want to be woken in the middle of the night.

These are the instructions taken directly from the DDY062 manual:
Alarm mute for the PROGRAMME END
The alarm for the programme end may be muted as follows:
IMPORTANT The dishwasher must be ALWAYS off before start this procedure.
1. Hold down the "PROGRAMME SELECTION" button and at the same time switch on the dishwasher by pressing the "ON/OFF" button (a brief audible signal will sound).
2. Keep the "PROGRAMME SELECTION" button pressed for at least 15 seconds (during this time, 2 audible signals will sound).
3. Release the button when the second audible signal sounds (3 "PROGRAMME SELECTION" indicator lights will come on).
4. Press the same button again: the 3 indicator lights (which indicate that the alarm is activated) will start flashing (to indicate that the alarm is off).
5. Turn off the dishwasher by pressing the "ON/OFF" button to confirm the new setting.
To turn the alarm on again, follow the same procedure.

Hi Colin, I need to find a manual for my dishwasher. Its aMatsui M12FDW09 any advice would be great thanks. Dishwasher start to make strange noise and the water is not coming through to start the first ...

Hi Colin,

Please click the link below to download the manual for the Matsui M12FDW09:

The manual is in English. Please ignore the Japanese text on the cover. Unfortunately, it's unlikely having the manual will help you identify the cause of the fault.

I'm assuming the flashing light you are referring to is numbered 1 in the control panel diagram on page 2 (the 5th page of the PDF manual). This light simply indicates the dishwasher is in the pre-rinse stage of the wash cycle. Your description suggests the solenoid has failed, so the water inlet valve isn't opening and no water is entering the dishwasher.

I only repair Matsui washers on call-out as they are a Dixon's Stores Group (DSG) only brand in the UK, so I don't see that many of them and can't get service manuals. I can diagnose and fix them when they're in front of me, but I couldn't tell you from memory how to get access to the components and test them.

I hope this helps you a little, even though it doesn't really solve your problem.

Regards, BElectric

My Bosch Classixx dishwasher is using all the salt in one wash.Why and how do I resolve?

In order to rinse dishes and glasses satisfactorily, the dishwasher requires soft water, i.e. containing little or no lime, otherwise water stains will be left behind on crockery and glasses, etc. If the tap water exceeds a certain level of hardness, it must be softened, i.e. decalcified, so that it can be used in the dishwasher. his is achieved by adding a special salt to the water softener inside the dishwasher. The water softener, that is the required amount of salt, is set up according to how hard the tap water is.

Setting up the water softener

Determine the level of hardness of your tap water. Your local water company or service agent can help you with this. Identify setting from the following water hardness table.

Press and hold the B programme button, and set the main switch to ON, before releasing the programme button again.

The indicator lamp for the B button flashes, as does the figure in the numerical display. The latter represents the value that was preset in the factory.

To change the setting:

Press the B programme button.

Every time the button is pressed, the figure increases by one. After reaching 7 the display starts at 0 again.

Set the main switch OFF. The new setting is stored in the appliance’s memory.

Approx. 4 litres of water are required for regenerating the water softening system. The overall water consumption per load can therefore be increased by between 0 and a maximum of 4 litres according to the water hardness setting.

Possibly tge heating element,I am having the same problem .When I check during the operation it appears that the water is not heating up. Only runs the rinse programme without the error message as I assume that uses cold water only?
