Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Asco, 1585 dishwasher outlet pump will not shut off.

I can pour water into the wash chamber and it will pump out. The level gets to correct level above the pump, but the pump will not shut off. I have a high water level light when I use the fault tracing.

    Lights keep flashing and the pump keeps making the sucking sounds. I can pour water in the bottom, the pump will pump out the water and keep sucking, sucking, etc. Only way to turn it off is to flip the switch on the wall. Once it's flipped back on, it's right back sucking again.

Detergent not dissolving therefore some items not clean.

Jerry had two good First Checks with the water level and the temperature. Turn on the dishwasher and open the door after it completes filling and check the level and temperature.

A third possibility if the level and temperature are correct is that your dishwasher is not spraying enough water around. This could be due to a faulty pump, but more often I see a reduced spray from a clogged filter on the input to the pump.

You can check the amount of spray by waiting until it starts the wash cycle and open the door quickly. Water should be pouring off the upper rack and you should either have water come out of the door or have it be very close to spraying out.

Some dishwasher models have an easily accessible filter, others take some tools to get down to it.

Staneding water in chamber after wash and rise cycle

Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Pump constantly on and won't fill

First check whether inlet water is OK. Just for a trial manually pour water in the wash chamber without overflowing, to avoid spillage on your floor.

Run a empty cycle. If it works & drains check the inlet flow up to the pump, inside the machine.

No water

Check the incoming water to the dishwasher. If the filter is clogged clean it and re fix. Strainer is located on the machine inlet junction where the hose is fitted.

The humming sound is due to motor running without water. When you rectify the inlet flow fault, pour additional water manually into the wash chamber and run the cycle. This to remove trapped air in the pump due to dry run.

First check water inflow to the machine. If there is no water machine may not start.

To ascertain further, pour water into the wash chamber manually to the require level and run the machine. If it works check the water inlet.

When it starts the wash cycle it justs makes a buzzing noise and the motor does not start.

Check inlet water flow. Try pouring water from the front into the wash chamber. Run the cycle. If it works, it is air trapping problem in the pump. It should become alright after this.

Dishwasher does not drain properly

Open the door. Pour a mug of water in the wash chamber bottom. Watch the flow of water. Where it accumulates and drain, you will find a filter. This is point where the drain takes place.

After this point it may go through a pump to the main exit hose.

Water pump works from the minute I press the main switch

I may have had the same problem. At the end of a normal wash cycle the pump would stay on for hours or even days - I would have to power off, and then keepp trying to power on until it had eventually stopped. The pump operates even with the door open.

Problem is caused by a small float which senses the water level in the dishwasher, floating up and operating a microswitch, which turns on the pump to pump the water out. Obviously, if the dishwashe is filling up for some reason, you want the pump to operate even if the door is open. The float is in a small chamber - a very snug fit, with a hole in the bottom which is connected to the main pipework in the machine. There is another chamber next to the flot chamber which is also connected to the pipework. When the water level rises too high, water from this second chamber overflows into the flot chamber, raising the float and operating the pump. The water level then drops as the water is pumped out. The water level in the float chamber should also drop, but didn't on my dishwasher because the hole in the bottom was blocked (with old soap suds and grime I assume). Hence the pump just stays on. I assume in my case, the water flowed out very slowly, and eventually the pump stopped.

To fix it, removed the left hand side panel (2 screws on the front door lip. The back of the panel is just hooked on some raised bits of plastic). This exposes all the pipework, and the red float can be seen in it's chamber. I removed an extra couple of bits of plastic near the float chamber whilst I tried to work out what to do - but this may not be necessary. You will have to try for yourself. I couldn't get access to the hole to poke something in to unblock it, so I poured sink and drain cleaner into the flot chamber, topping up as it drained away, leaving it for approx. 15 mins. I think thick bleach would also work. Note: this cleaner won't be very good for any metal inside the dishwasher, so run 1 or 2 wash cycles to clean it out.

Maybe the dishwasher cleaner advertised on tv would have worked i.e. the stuff you put in the dishwasher on an emty cycle to clean out all the internals. I haven't used it, but it would be easier than taking the dishwasher to pieces.

Hope this helps
