Question about AEG 24 in. Favorit 40850 Free-standing Dishwasher
Hi, i got error code 30 (anti flood) on my aeg dishwasher 40850. do you know how i can reset it please? thanks for your time & help...my wife will be so happy if i can fix it!!!
AEG Favorit 40850 i30 error - this is the anti-flood error. I did the tipping-over trick, great, but for me, the problem got more and more frequent until the machine would not run. So I took it apart and this is what I found: in the drainage area, next to the water drain, is a sensor. This has been described to me by a dealer as a 'temperature sensor'. I am not sure if this controls the anti-flood system, it may well do, as it is the only one in there. However, the problem is not caused by the sensor itself - around the sensor is a black rubber grommet (seal). In my machine (4 years old) this was badly perished - the rubber had become soft and oily, and about half of it had gone. The sensor itself was covered in oily goo from the grommet. I think that bits of the grommet have been coming off and jamming in the drain, and maybe causing the sensor itself not to work properly. I changed the grommet (£5 part), and it all works great. If you want to do this yourself, follow these instructions:

Tip it over onto it's front & then back upright again, we just did, error 30 stopped, and machine is working again.

I did like it was suggested and it functioned! Can't believe it. Actually I tipped the machine over, but not till the end (very slightly). It was a bit water on the ground. I removed it and put the machine upright. Thanks a lot!

Great! Thank you Sara! I
looked under the cover at the bottom of AEG Favorit Silence dishwasher and I found out, that there is polystyrene float. If the water gets into bottom tray, it rise up this float and thats the reason of error code. By tipping the machine you empty the tray and the problem is solved.

The solution that Sara suggested was very helpfull.
We had the code i30 after a christmas dinner for 12 people ending with the complete kitchen filled with dishes.

For some time, we have been experiencing error code I30 as well. as suggested above, removing the water by tilting the machine helped, but it never stopped water from pooring into the bottom plate. Today, I investigated very thoroughly where the water was coming from and i was astonisched.
I found several puntures (little holes) due to what looks like corrosion inside the machine in the area under the metal filter plate at the bottom. All around the edges of the removable filter it looked like the metal had been eaten away. Waybe this is because of the agressive chemicals used? I don't know. Anyway, the metal sheet that the inner housing is made of was extremely thin. About 0.2mm thick. I feel like this is way too thin to be solid and I am going to contact AEG about this.
As for the lot of you: instead of shaking your machine every time, do check also where the water is coming from! If your machine is still under guarantee, this is clearly a fabrication flaw and your machine should be replaced!

Wow! Can hardly believe it was so simple - thank you Sara. I also had error code 30 on an AEF F3A. Saved a large puddle by pumping the water out of the salt contauiner first - but I was fortunate, I had this little pump that fits on the end of a drill sitting in my garage having only been used once in 15 years!! If you don't have a pump a couple of extra towels is probably a better alternative than buying one! Simply tipped the dishwaher fowards on to its door - held it for a couple of seconds and put it back upright. SWitched it on and away it went

This solution rocks.
We moved to Germany a few months ago and brough our 40850 with us. Tonight I had a short power failout due to some work we did. The dishwasher gave code 30 after we resetted the power. Turning the dishwasher over to almost the end released water and was somehow working again.
