    Sorry your problem description is truncated. Please clarify what status you are seeing when you turn power on to dishwasher. Also provide make and model number of dishwasher.

  • Rosslyn Butters Nov 04, 2012

    Hi there, thank you for responding, the make is Hygena AHY8102/1. The dishwasher is free from bubbles and I have also added boiling water and also completely emptied and dried it out but it doesn't appear to be advancing. The only controls I have are cold rinse, off or wash at 60 degrees. As this is integrated i only have access to the inspection panel and wondered if there was any access to a reset button and where it would be. Not very proud of myself at this moment but would really like to be able to fix it and am very grateful for any advice you can give, also what does truncated mean?

Hi Rosslyn, there is nothing to be apologetic about. We all make mistakes. By "truncated" I meant the problem description you had given was cut short for some reason. However, looking at your response the model number you have given, I can only think the problem is persisting because the foam from the washing detergent has seeped to odd places. I am not very familiar with the Hygena model. If your unit has a water softner unit then the thing can be complicated. In which case if the problem is still there you will need to call a technician. If there is no water softener unit, then one thing to do is turn off the power and back on. If still no change, then turn of the power, drag the unit out from under bench and tilt it a few times on each side. Wait a little and try again. If there is foam or liquid still around, it might come out. The other problem could be with the detergent dispenser. it might need taking out and cleaning inside. Needs a bit of technical skills to do that. Once again as I said before I am not familiar with this brand of dishwashers.

I accidently put dishwashing liquid soap in the dispenser. Now the water from the bottom of the dishwasher will not fully drain. I checked the filters, those are clean. Please help and Thank you.


In a small bowl, wash your hands in block soap. Tip the water into the dishwasher and it will kill the foam and bubbles.

If there are no bubbles in there, pull the machine out and undo the clips on the drain hose. Drain the machine into bucket or a deep dish. This should reset the water level switch.

Smeg DI 409CA Dishwasher - Doesn't wash properly, tablet doesn't desolve and cycle lasted all night


Hi,

The first thing is have a look at the instruction manual from HERE

If the dishwasher is not washing properly then please follow these steps:
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.
As you said that the water builds up at the bottom see If it comes out 'foamy' then liquid dish soap is getting introduced into the dishwasher. Liquid dish soap is different than automatic dishwasher detergent. liquid dish soap needs to be COMPLETELY rinsed from anything that has been pre-soaked prior to putting in the dishwasher. after a couple of regular cycles the foam will go away. Nowadays liquid dish soap is also 'concentrated' or 'ultra concentrated' which doesn't help.


If further this does not solve your problem the the only solution is to get it repaired.

Goodluck..

Your pipe to the water pump exit is probably blocked with bits of old fluff or missing sock, i found that the clothes had slimy bits on mine, i tilted it up and removed the rubber water exit pipe from under neath, cleaned out all the rubbish and works a treat now.

I stupidly put washing up liquid in my very old Bosch SPS 21/24 as i had run out of dishwasher tablets - a few bubbles leaked out but all seemd fine and now it makes all the right noises but nothing...


Take a shop vac and remove all the water and suds.
No shop vac...use a towel or sponge.
Then use a pot to manually fill the dishwasher with cold water. Set it to wash a few seconds then go to pump out setting.
Re-fill with cold water and repeat this process until the normal sounds return and the washer is clear of suds.
HOT water will not work. It only makes the suds worse.
COLD water only.
Repeat repeat repeat ubtil clear.

My daughter put dishwashing soap in the dishwasher. We had to stop the cycle from running because it was overflowing. Any suggestions on how to clean it out would be appreciated.


Ooo bad news... Hope you like bubbles.
Don't worry, all is not lost.
Some people would suggest defoamers or other chemicals to cut the bubbles down, but if you just cycle the machine between the drain and fill steps, you will (eventually) dilute the soap down enough as to eliminate the problem.
It may be necessary to run cold water down the same drain as the dishwasher as cooler temps cause bubbles to decrease.
Hope this helps,
Kermit

Dishwasher won't drain water


The bubbles created by the dish soap could cause poor draining, but I would think it would just cause more of a bubble problem than a draining problem...
Either way, some people would say to throw a cup of vinegar into the wash area, but I prefer to just use water.
Disconnect the drain line from the machine at the sink and route it into a 5 gallon bucket. Drain and fill the machine several times to clear the bubbles out. This will also give you the opportunity to see if the drain problem you state is a machine problem or a drain problem.
Hope this helps,
Kermit

Continuous rinsing


Put 2 tablespoons of oil into the water at the bottom of the dishwasher it will help break up the suds. Sprinkle as well ordinary table salt liberally across the suds to disperse them. Try to drain the unit as much as possible, soaking up any residual water or suds with a dry towel. Let the machine fill again, and repeat the process if necessary. Good luck !
