Open Question

Matsui dishwasher Matsui MS452S slimline - second wash light flashing and unit doesn't fill. Tilting it backwards allows water to leak out from the left rear corner then it runs correctly for minute or two before numerous beeps sound and unit cuts out with light flashing again. How do I get into the base to see if there are any leaks? Unit less than 2 yrs old.

SOURCE: Leaking dishwasher

Are you washing cereal bowls or mixing bowls on the bottom rack? If so, are you placing them in front? Sudden leaks that form huge puddles can often be attributed to improper loading of the dishwasher. Most dishwashers don't have a seal across the tub front. The door closes over it and does a pretty good job of deflecting water back inside the wash cavity. However, if you place bowls in the front on the bottom rack rack they can divert the water right over the tub lip and onto the floor. This is usually the culprit that causes most leaks in dishwashers. Now, if you don't think you have a loading problem, remove the kick panel on the bottom of the dishwasher and check the drain line and pump housing for leaks. Check the door gasket for tears or cracks. Lastly, feel inside the bottom of the door with your hand. You should be able to feel the door insulation. If it is wet, then the problem could be a leak around your soap or rinse-aid dispenser. Depending on the model, some dispensers are mounted to the door with a gasket behind it. Sometimes this gasket can form leaks. I hope this helps.

The fill switch may be contaminated with soap or debris that makes it heavier and makes it float lower in the water which means more water is required to trip it. Try moving it manually and see if it is hard to move at the top of its travel.

Your drying vent tube is probably leaking inside the door panel.  Remove the outer front panel and on the top left side, there is long white plastic tube connected to the dryer fan assembly.  In that connection is where the problem is.  You will need to disassemble the fan from the door, disconnect the tube from the fan, clean out the water and debris and use silicone when reassembling the tube to the fan.

You might want to check the salt and rinse levels on your dishwasher.
Ours was doing the exact same thing and we refilled the dishwasher salt and it worked again. Unscrew the plastic thing on the bottom of the dishwasher and fill it up with about 1 kilo of dishwasher salt, water will flow out when you do this and you can put at least 2 kilos in.
Hope that helps xxx

SOURCE: my matsui mf2w/a dishwasher sticks

check the safety thermostat which is located at the bottom of the dishwasher. you have to remove the bottom plate,and then you will find easily the thermostat-KSD201/PF 90. you have to reset this probably.there is a red wax dot in the middle this thermostat, so remove it and use a needle to press a very small button inside. the heating element is working well probably.you can measure resistance on it to be sure.

Matsui MS160SL dishwasher not working.


To wash dishes you can use a bucket to fill the washer. Things to check are the float in the washer that regulates the fill level. Make sure it is not stuck, if that is okay, check the filter at the water inlet to the washer. It should have a screen on it. It might be blocked. To check that you have to pull it out if it is a in the counter mounted unit. If there are no debris in the filter, check the voltage on the water valve. If you have voltage the valve is bad, if not voltage the controller is bad.

Hi Colin, I need to find a manual for my dishwasher. Its aMatsui M12FDW09 any advice would be great thanks. Dishwasher start to make strange noise and the water is not coming through to start the first ...


Hi Colin,

Please click the link below to download the manual for the Matsui M12FDW09:

http://www.partmaster.co.uk/company/partmaster/manuals/M12FDW09_IB_GB_FINAL_091110.pdf

The manual is in English. Please ignore the Japanese text on the cover. Unfortunately, it's unlikely having the manual will help you identify the cause of the fault.

I'm assuming the flashing light you are referring to is numbered 1 in the control panel diagram on page 2 (the 5th page of the PDF manual). This light simply indicates the dishwasher is in the pre-rinse stage of the wash cycle. Your description suggests the solenoid has failed, so the water inlet valve isn't opening and no water is entering the dishwasher.

I only repair Matsui washers on call-out as they are a Dixon's Stores Group (DSG) only brand in the UK, so I don't see that many of them and can't get service manuals. I can diagnose and fix them when they're in front of me, but I couldn't tell you from memory how to get access to the components and test them.

I hope this helps you a little, even though it doesn't really solve your problem.

Regards, BElectric

Matsui slimline dishwasher don't know what symbols mean one is a pot with a tray underneath. One is just a pot and the other is a shower with a tray type line at an angle


OK . . .

Pot with tray underneath is "heavy soil" - this will be a long wash
Pot only is "medium soil" - this will be a standard wash
Shower with tray / line is "light soil" this will be a quick wash / rinse

Please rate this solution if you find this helpful. Thanks.

The machine stopped with 33 minutes remaining on 96. There is a "pumping" sound but no water comes in. The dial says it is on rinse but it does not rinse. Bosch Dishwasher EN: SHU4326UC/U12 FD8007. 260415...


If you have water filling up in the sump, you will get that scenario. If water is out of the tub, pull unit out and tilt backwards about 45 degrees. If water comes out from the base(sump), then you know you have a leak and need to have it attended to. Note, if water does come out when tilting the machine backwards, you will find it will work again until base is full again.(Switch off before tilting the machine backwards just for safety.

Matsui mf160 starts its wash cycle and timer stops


on most machines, the timer will not run if the water is not up to temp. if the inside is plenty hot mid-cycle, then your heating element is probably good. it is the thermometer that needs located and checked. if the inside is not steamy, then your heating element is the most likely culprit.
don't hate your dishwasher. it just wants to make sure that you get a full wash cycle at a hot enough temp. to get the dishes clean. good luck

Matsui dishwasher wont fill up with water


check your inlet filter at the tap source and behind the machine where the filler pipe enters. They changed some pipes in our street and fine sand filled our micro filters to the dishwasher.
