Neff S5555 - empties water but stuck in draining mode.

I have a two year old Neff S5555 which has stopped working. Although it successfully empties out all the the waste water it does not seem to want to finish it's wash cycle - getting stuck in a constant drain (with the pump running and impeller spinning to remove water that is not there). I have switched the machine on and off, reset the programme to no avail.

If this machine uses an electrical-mechanical timer with cam switches, the try oiling the shaft bushings both for the timer motor and cams-the timer may be getting stuck because of dry or corroded bushings

Dishwasher will not empty water and has stopped Also a tap emblem has come on which I have not seen before

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Ok there are acouple of things that can be checked on this along with what you have already checked
Drain solenoid Beneath some dishwashers, there's a timer-activated drain solenoid (an electro-magnetic coil) that opens a drain valve, to drain the wash water through a hose and out to the house's plumbing waste system. If this is failing it will not allow the water to drain from the machine fully
Timer Dishwashers have a timer behind the main control panel at the front top of the dishwasher, or behind the lower access panel. It is either a mechanical device like a simple clock, or it's completely electronic with just a digital readout. The timer runs the dishwasher in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the dishwasher components at the correct time, for the correct length of time.

Water wont fill

first of all, i'm gonna guess that the water supply under the sink is turned on.
the water you hear is the left over water from a previous cycle. there is always some left in the hoses after it drains, just like your washer.
this is 1 of 2 things. either your float is stuck in the up position or your water inlet valve is malfunctioning. the float is the quick and easy fix. the float is somewhere inside your dishwasher. it tells the water to stop coming in when it reaches a certain height, just like your toilet. it could look like anything, but most likely a cone or a little hat. just grab it and try to move it up and down. it should slide freely. it was probably stuck up and your handling will have solved the problem. we hope.
if the float was ok, the inlet valve needs checked or replaced. it is under the machine and has the water supply line hooked up to it. good luck

I have a Matsui MS160SLI dishwasher it keeps on draining and will not fill with water. I have tried everything in the manual but nothing works. Help.

If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty water level switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.
Check if the floating sensor is stuck or faulty.
Some machine may use a membrane switch instead of a floater.

First try disconnecting the unit, completely from any power, for an hour or more, look in any control doors or access points for a small battery mounted to a board or in a holder, if you find one, take it out also, noting the positive and negative orientation.

If that doesn't do it, there are reset buttons under the tops or lids of some NEFF models, if there is an obvious lid after trying the no power trick, take off the top and look for a stand alone reset button.

If all that fails, write me back

How do I reset my dishwasher

Sounds to me like you have put the dishwasher into flood mode, this happens when there is water in the base panel, try leaning the dishwasher back and see if any water comes out. :)

It is possible drain pump blocked, you need to empty d/washer manually, check inside drain pump which is at end of drain hose, always isolate d/washer from power before attempting any work on it.

Water in the bottom under the metal gride are absolutely normal. This water will be drained out at the beginning of the next cycle.

Dishwasher stuck on "drain"

not easy to fix - it has a leak. the tray at the base is full of water which ooperates a float which switches drain pump on. remove front panel at bottom front and mop out water or tilt backwards 45deg and water will run out. leak is usually main pump
