Blanco BDW-203 dishwasher will not fill with water

I have a Blanco BDW-203 dishwasher - and over recent months it has been making louder and louder whirring noises during the wash cycle. Yesterday, I started a load of dishes, and it just sat there silently. The water heating element was on, and the panel lights were normal - but it did not fill with water(there was no pump sound whatsoever). Any ideas on this one? Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle

It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.

SOURCE: Dishwasher was making whirliing noise during wash, now no wash, only fill and drain

there is a #10 torx screw holding that cover not drill it out. after you take it off you can tell if the chopper is careful for broken glass.

Our newish Blanco dishwasher BDW3458X sometimes doesn't drain all the water out either... it has H23 flashing but can't find any manual to tell me what this means. I appreciate all the answers others

I struck this problem recently and it may have been caused by someone leaning all over the buttons while it was running. I got around it by holding in the start/pause button for a couple of seconds. The timer went to zero and it whirred away for a few seconds. After this it was reset and has worked ok since.

Blanco dishwasher

Dishwashers do not usually complete the cycle if the water temperature is not adequate for the wash program selected. This could be due to inlet hot water not at correct temperature if dishwasher uses hot water or the heater or thermostat within dishwasher being faulty and not able to heat the inlet cold water to the right temperature. Try to run the dishwasher with the rinse or quick wash (low temperature) setting and see if it completes. Might help if you post the Model number in the comments field.

Loud noise filling water

Probably heat trap nipples, or other constriction in pipes.

My Blanco dishwasher does not fill with water but makes noises like it's working

Check water inlet. Add water straight into the chamber manually 10 liters or as required,from the front . Close the door and run the machine. If air is trapped it will get cleared! however check free flow of water in the inlet rubber hose.Check the soleinoid valve water inlet for functioning. If the solenoid valve is not opening, then also this water flow problem into the machine will be.

Fills with water and then just humms, no spray/wash action

Hello-   The 'hum' is the motor trying to turn. If the dishwasher has been getting louder recently, then the motor bearing has failed.  The solution for this problem is to replace the motor.  Occasionally the sump gets clogged, but this rarely stops the motor.  The motor is about 125$, and is easy to replace if you can remove and re-install a dishwasher.                       Please acknowledge this posted solution. Thanks- Ed

Right hand side nylon spring cord guide broken when cord snapped and now door return has no tension.

Searched for a nylon rope guide for a Baumatic BDW 9 but was unable to locate one. I found that many of the components for the BDW 9 also fitted the BDW 10. So I searched for the rope guide for a BDW 10 and found the correct product. Problem solved!

Error E1 comes up on dishwasher

E1 error comes up when faucet is not opened. this is shown up when it takes longer filling time.
The solution for this is to ensure that the inlet hose is not kinked or crushed.

High pitched whining noise from bottom of dishwasher

the arms are only turned by water coming out of them thro angled jets, they are not electrically driven. the noise will be coming from the circulating pump, probably one of the bearings. no cure except to replace
