The water pressure is not upto the mark in your dishwasher , try switching it on when there is no other water being used.

Clean light is flashing


please read your instruction manual and go the section troubleshooting
press down the overfill protection float on the floor of the dishwasher's tub in the right, front corner near the door. If it cannot move up and down freely, the "clean" light will flash.

Hi, I am not getting any water going into the machine when I put it on a programme. It starts and when I go back to check it 5 - 10 mins later it says its finished yet everything is still dry and dirty....


It sounds like something may be stuck under your fill switch float. This is usually located near the door, and sits in the bottom of the tub. You'll need to remove the bottom dish tray/basket to get at the float.
Usually, the float is cylindrical, with a magnet inside. It slides up and down a tube which has a magnetic switch inside, which is operated by the magnet in the float traveling by it as the water level in the tub rises and falls. The switch operates a solenoid operated valve which allows water into the tub. This float switch also tells the system when all the water has been pumped out after a cleaning cycle in some dishwashers.
Occasionally, something will get stuck under the float, such as a piece of broken dishware, or a wheel off one of the basket rollers, to name just two items. If this happens when the water level is up, it seems to the dishwasher that there is water in the tub, even when there isn't any, and it proceeds with a wash cycle, but without water, resulting in dirty dishes and a dry inside-of-the-dishwasher.
If you don't find anything under the float, make sure the float travels up and down the tube freely, as it's getting stuck on a dirty tube will cause it to hang up. Clean the outside of the tube and the inside of the float with a piece of Scotch-Brite; NEVER use steel wool, brillo, or anything else which could leave magnetic materials on the float or tube, as they could affect the operation of the magnetic switching operation.
Always check your owner's manual for solutions to this type of problem, and other good maintenance tips.
Good luck!

On my Dishwasher Miele G638 Plus, a red light shows up and it says PC salt, I dont know how to solve this, please help me.


Hi - its possiblily the following issues if its flashing rapidly then the electronic module maybe faulty. The other possibilties are the float switch inside the salt conatner is jammed or the reed switch for the float switch in the salt container does work.

My dishwasher keeps adding water and overflows


If the water lifts the float all the way up or the float is submerged, the water level is too high. Overfilling is likely a problem with the float or float switch. The float is located inside the dishwasher in the tub area. As water enters the tub, the float device will rise. When the float rises to a certain level it triggers the float switch, which in turn, turns off the water flow. In some dishwashers, the float switch is only used to prevent overfilling and the amount of water is regulated by the timer.

Before testing the float assembly, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.



To inspect the float assembly, open the dishwasher and remove the bottom rack. Remove the float cover (if any; it can be identified by the fact that the cover does not move up and down). The cover may snap in place or it may be fastened in place with a screw.

Lift and drop the float several times. It should move freely. If the float sticks, it may prevent the dishwasher from filling or draining properly. Remove the float and look for obstructions that may interfere with its free movement. The float usually snaps in place. If it does not come off with a small force, it may have to be disconnected from the float switch first.

You will need to Replace the float and float cover, If you found no obstructions and the problem persists, test the float switch.

TESTING PROCEDURE




To access the float switch remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.

Note the location of the float in the dishwasher's tub and you will find the float switch beneath it in the access area. The switch has two wires connected to it. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. You should get a reading of either zero or infinity. With the probes still in place, depress the button or lever on the switch and the reading should change to the opposite extreme.

If the switch fails either test, it should be replaced.


NOTE_ If the float, and float switch check out ok, and there are no issues here, the culprit will be a faulty water inlet valve. replace the valve in this case.

Whirlpool dishwasher low water presure upper level


Since you have low pressure
  • Check the float switch inside the tub, it should move freely up and down.

  • Check the harness to the motor

  • Check start capacitor on the left side of the wash motor

Water keeps running into dishwasher causing overflow


I had a diswasher with thils problem several years ago. The problem was wiith the plastic float at the bottom. It had hardend greese buildup that kept the float from moving freely. Removing the float and cleanning fixed the problem.

The salt light keeps burning


the salt light is done by a reed switch operated by a float in the salty water. float may be stuck - give softener (where you put in the salt) a tap and also stir the water inside the softener. i assume you have put in enough salt. its not a serious fault

Dishwasher doesn't fill


Dishwasher Doesn't Fill If a dishwasher runs but doesn't fill, either something is wrong with its water supply system or it is draining water too soon. 1) First make sure the water is turned on. Check the hot water supply stop valve, normally located under the sink. Open it all the way by turning it counterclockwise. If there is no reason this would have been turned off since the last time the dishwasher worked, go on to the next step. 2) Turn off the power to the dishwasher. 3) When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher --usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring loaded). Lift out the float mechanism and clean around the float tube; many floats must be disconnected from below--to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, then replace it in the tube and be sure it moves up and down freely. 4) If you're experienced with minor repair work shut off the hot water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel, disassemble the valve to reveal the screen, clean debris from the screen, and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (they will probably need to replace the water intake valve). 5) If none of this helps, call a repairperson. Any of several parts, including water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch, may be faulty.
