    Runs and Runs - when door is opened there is 1 minute left on the display - I don't want to take it to the tip, it's only 5 years old - a mere infant for Neff products - I have had upwards of 15 years from these products. Cleaned all filters - after reset it shows E6 - is this an error code?

    Neff S5456 dishwasher fails to complete cycle and displays 1 minute left (and hums at this point). Also small amount foamy liquid oozing from ends of spray arms at end. Everything appears okay, heats water, pumps and drains and will complete 35C quick wash ok. Suspect dry cycle is problem (no dry step on quick wash) but unable to get into the thing to investigate. Does it have two heaters? What are the steps required to dry? How do you get into it? Help please.

I have this problem quite regularly with my NEFF built-in dishwasher. It can have a number of causes, but in my case it is almost always due to a sticking float in the filling system. This causes the machine to underfill so it doesn't clean properly and then sticks with 1 minute left to run for ever. Other machines are probably quite similar - especially Bosch and Siemens.
My solution is to :
1. Disconnect electrical supply and turn off the water. Slide the dishwasher out of its housing carefully (you made need to disconnect hoses and mess with the levelling feet and other fixings to do this)
2. Remove the decor panel from the front door (usually two torx screws 2/3 of the way up each side - just loosen them)
3. Take the left panel off the dishwasher. Have a look at the filler float / air pressure chamber mechanism. If it all looks black and gungy inside, then this is probably your problem (It's slime mould that seems to love to collect here and jam stuff up). It may be possible to clean it in situ using hot soda or vinegar (someone else has put a youtube video about this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DE7oYA5l3EQ ). If that fails though, you will need to remove the entire float chamber mechanism to clean it out.
4. Take the bottom panel off (below the door.
5. You need to remove the water matrix reservoir. Remove the clip securing the water inlet to the matrix (back lower left, narrow pipe - blue in my case) and pull the pipe off (have a towel handy - it'll dribble quite a lot)
6. Pull out the clip between the two corrugated pipes next to the water inlet pipe, then pull these two pipes away from the water matrix. (towel again!)
7. Peel away the plastic splash shield carefully to expose the wiring to the micro-switches. Double check you unplugged the machine, then pull the two connectors off the switches.
8. Remove the two metal rails holding the matrix to the side of the machine (one torx screw in the middle of eash rail) and also remove the two top retaining clips (front one just pulls off and the rear one is held with the self-tapping screw accessible from the back)
9. You should now be able to lift the entire water matrix clear of the machine (there are 3 water connections at the bottom - these just pop out. Take care not to lose the rubber sealing rings). And you'll need that towel again. And maybe a bucket! And a good excuse for why the floor is all wet. (allright, I exaggerated a bit there)
10. Disconnect the lower drain hose from the float assembly - you need to get at this through the lower front panel.
11. It should now be possible to ease the float assembly up and away from the machine. Watch out for the red push-rod that operates the anti-flood device from the polystyrene float in the base.
12. You now have a (fairly slimy) pressure chamber assembly in your hand. All the parts of this simply unclip with a bit of effort. Take case not to break any bits, but basically anything that's a different color is detatchable. Clean everything (except the two microswitches!) in warm soapy water. An old toothbrush can help. If there is any lime-scale build-up, use a lime-scale cleaner too.
13. Before you put if back together, check the base of the machine (where the polystyrene float is) for water. If present, soak it up with a sponge or paper towels.
14. Now put it all back in the reverse order. REMEMBER THE ANTI-FLOOD float/push-rod assembly. I forgot and had to take it all apart again.
15. Water on, plug in, cross fingers and try it!
16. If it still messes up, check for water in the base again - you may have a leak from somewhere else causing the anti-flood to operate. ( In this case though, the machine will normally just continuously try to empty, rather than even attempt a wash cycle.)

Good luck.

To be honest with you i ended up taking it to the local dump because i was under pressure from the wife as she was concerned about the items not being cleaned properly and also if left unattended for a long period of time was it going to be a fire hazard?? but saying all that i was kind of happy leaving the door open once the wash was completed to leyt the dishes dry naturally. it's your call but in a nutshell no i didn't fix my one. good luck dave

How do I set coffee maker to shut off in 2 hrs and how to use clean cycle


Not knowing which model you have, here are the instructions for my model. Perhaps yours is the same.

"The Automatic Shutoff
Time can be programmed anywhere from immediate shutoff after completion of the brew cycle up to four hours. When the coffeemaker shuts itself off, two tones will sound. Two hours is the default time. The 0:00 setting shuts the unit off immediately after brewing is complete.
To check the current setting, press and hold the On/Off button and the Automatic Shutoff Time will be displayed.
To change the preset time, press and hold the On/Off button until the red power light and LCD display begin to flash. This signals that you have entered the Set Automatic Shutoff mode.
Press the Hours and Min buttons to scroll forward through the digits until desired time appears. The first setting which appears is preset at 2:00. When it's at 4:00, the next press key of Hour will roll back to 0:00, since four hours is the maximum Automatic Shutoff setting. Pressing and holding either button will allow you to scroll continuously, slowly at first, and then to accelerate to the rate of about three digits per second. As the desired time setting approaches, release the button and then press repeatedly to advance one digit at a time. The Automatic Shutoff Time (ASO) may be 8 9 programmed either before or during coffee brewing. You may also re-program the ASO time when brewing has been completed. If you do so, the Grind & Brew™ will automatically account for any time that has already elapsed after brewing. For example, if you set the ASO for 40 minutes and 25 minutes have already elapsed, the Grind & Brew™ will shut off automatically after 15 minutes (40 minutes minus the 25 elapsed equals 15 minutes)."

Mine doesn't have a specific clean cycle, but to decalcify the unit, add 1/2 vinegar to 2/3 water in a full cafree and run it through. If it's really calcified, turn off about 1/2 way through and let it set for an hour. Then turn it on and finish, Remember to run a pot of clean water through the wash out the vinegar taste.

HOW DO I SET THE TIMER FOR MOTION SENSOR LIGHT SWITCH


Straight from the manual: (As you are facing the switch, the light level adjustment is on the upper left. The time selection is on the lower left.


1. With power restored and wallplate removed, use your finger or a small screwdriver to adjust the light sensitivity and time settings on the device as follows:
Light Level Adjustment:• Turn the control towards the "+" sign. Lights will turn ON in lighter conditions.• Turn the control towards the "-" sign. Lights will turn ON in less lighting conditions.
Time Selection:• Adjust the time selector to the desired length of time the lights are to remain ON. Lights will remain ON from15 seconds to 15 minutes after the room is vacated.
• Turn the control towards the "+" sign. Lights will remain ON up to 15 minutes.
• Turn the control towards the "-" sign. Lights will remain ON up to 15 seconds.
2. Test that the light level and time selection are as desired. If not, repeat adjustments until satisfied.

Whirlpool gold dishwasher gets stuck at 53 minutes left for an hour


Try "resetting" the control board by running the diagnostic cycle. The cycle completes in 15 minutes. 
The details are in the service manual. The manual can be found hidden behind the tow plate (at the very bottom front of the washer).
The diagnostic cycle may tell you the problem. It also helps clear up some of the software gltiches. 
It is easy to run the diagnostic cycle.
Just the buttons in the following sequence. The sequence should be complete within 6 sec. 
heated dry -> Normal -> heated dry -> Normal
This will trigger diagnostic cycle of 19 intervals. Pay special attention to the intervals 18, 17, 9, 6, 4.
Interval 18 - displays your controller module number (should be letter 'd' followed by number 0 or 1 or 2 or something. Note that down for future reference.
Interval 17 displays 'software generation number' Note that down for future reference.
Then wait until you reach interval 9.  --- clean LED turns on - then an open or shorted thermister is detected.
-- Sanitized LED turns on - then the washer detected greater than 100 deg F temperature
Interval 7
-- Soaking/sensing LED should NOT come on (unless food soil is present).
Interval 4 -- Soaking/sensing LED should come on


Let the cycle complete and then try running the normal wash. Hopefully the possible glitches are cleared by now and you should have no problem. 
If this doesn't work, time to call the expert tech.
