My Flavel FDW45 dishwasher keeps filling with water when its switched off?

It seems to be coming in from a filter hole inside the machine which is continuously seeping water.

SOURCE: washer

If I'm not mistaken, these dishwashers are built by Asko for Viking. If thats the case then you probably have a bad circulation pump. Under Asko's warranty (not sure if Viking is the same) these pumps are covered parts and labor for 3 years from installation date, and 5 years for the part only. The pump is accesed from the back of the machine,so you have to pull out the dishwasher. Then you remove the lower plate in the rear and the motor at the very back center is the pump. You remove it by turning it about a 1/4 turn either clockwise or counter clockwise, depending on the style, then place the new one in and turn it to lock it in place, being careful that the sealing oring stays in place or youll get a leak. The part will probably cost you around $150 unless viking marks theirs up more than Asko. Good Luck!

SOURCE: dishwasher keeps running

I have a similar problem. On the main program the dishwasher starts but stops during the cycle leaving the motor running. I have had the problem before and called a repair man out, he traced the fault to a broken wire leading from the control unit / timer to somewhere under the machine. The break was located where the wires went under the door, I would tend to suggest that this fault has re occurred and your fault may be the same.

Step1
Inspect the door gasket. As it ages, the gasket can crack or become hard, preventing it from sealing completely. 
Step
2
If the gasket appears solid, adjust the door latch so the door seals tightly. Loosen the screw that holds the door latch to the cabinet. Push the latch in slightly and retighten the screw. Test the door and readjust the latch if necessary. 
Step
3
Replace the gasket if water continues to leak after you've tightened the latch. Most gaskets are held by compression in a groove on the door or on the dishwasher cabinet. 
Step
4
Pull the old gasket out of its groove, using adjustable pliers (see illustration). Take the gasket to an appliance store to get a replacement. 
Step
5
Soak the new gasket in warm water to soften it, then press it into the groove. Start at the top, then work your way down the sides and across the bottom.

The machine will not refill, I did the water softner yesterday and have been having problems since. Now the machine will not fill at all and turns itself off.


Hi



When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly.


Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Dishwasher leaks-can't seem to pin it down to a certain situation-sometimes it leaks, sometimes it doesn't. Also, the filter hole seems to have more standing water than normal


Do you know where it pools the most ? Most leaks occur around the pump housing and the door. over filling with water can cause seepage to a full blown flood. Check your water level switch.

Dishwasher is not completing the cycle, and water remains in the tub. I've cleaned the filter and that doesn't seem to solve the problem.


check you float switch at the back to see if it is sticking ,and it should always have at least an inch of water in it to keep the motor seal wet or it will dry up and leak creating another problem

if hot or both cold and hot fill try to switch the pipes
if not filling it may be a problem with program and or filter blocked
check also the pump
did you check the water is on as sometimes people forget to swith it on
if the motor has carbons as in the washing machine and if they are worn the water will not fill or better the motor is not going to turn and will not pump in water
as it is possible the pump may not work
this will make a sound like emptiness and with air in it

Bosch Exxcel Auto option


There should be a float switch inside the dishwasher sometimes these get hung up on the full position which in turn keeps the solenoid from allowing the water to come on. remove the bottom rack and check to see if this is the case. Dislodging the float should fix the problem. If not listen to see if the solonoid Clicks when you turn the cycle to fill position if not it could be either solonoid or the timer. if you hear click and still no water check strainer in water line could be clogged or water is turned off some where.

Check water light comes on


is your appliance a miele? normally this is causeb by blockages ( bit of plastic or paper wrapping/ milk bottle tops etc) inside the impeller of the main circulating pump (motor) restricting the flow of water the only solution is to fisically remuve the obstraction by temporarelly remuving the motor and cleaning not a simple job
