Mineral buildup in the water lines may have broken loose when the boiler (I really think water heater) was replaced and clogged the line somewhere between the boiler and the dishwasher.

Your boiler installer can come out and check that for you.

Lisa, talk to a friendly neighbour with DIY skills. Go online and find the best price for a new pump, weigh that up against a new machine plus a cup of coffee for your neighbour. If that fails get an appliance engineer for a quote, bearing in mind he will charge you full retail for a pump plus fitting. When you go online or talk to an engineer have all the machine detail off the label on the back ready to hand. You don't say where you are or give machine details so I can't help you further at this time.

Error code list


ALARMS THAT STOP THE DISHWASHER

A1 Want of water

Is the water cock open?

Does the water load solenoid valve work?

Is the water feed flow a min. of 5 l/min?

Is the water inlet filter clean?

Is the load solenoid valve filter clean?

Is the overflow inserted?

Do the tank/boiler pressure switches work properly?



C9 Automatic hood out of order

Alarm codes for automatic hood type dishwasher (see paragraph 9.2.1 Alarm codes for automatic

hood type dishwashers)



C12 Tank level sensor out of order

Are the connectors correctly connected?

Are connector contacts cleaned?

Does the air trap of the tank work correctly?

Is the level sensor broken (replace it with a new one)?



Alarm codes for automatic hood type dishwashers

When the alarm C9 appears, to facilitate fault-finding a parameter providing a more detailed indication has

been introduced.

The parameter is C9 and is found in the ron family.

The possible cause of the anomaly can be found (see next table) according to the value of the parameter C9.

E.g.: With an automatic hood type the alarm C9 appears.

Access the parameter C9 in the ron family.

Assuming the value displayed is:

20 ? During lifting, the current absorbed by the lifting motor has exceeded the threshold. This can happen if

a rack or other heavy material was placed on the hood.









ALARMS THAT DON'T STOP THE DISHWASHER (SHOWN ON THE USER INTERFACE AT REGULAR INTERVALS)

b1 Drain not efficient

Has the overflow been removed?

Is the water drain blocked?

Is the drain pump blocked?

Are the air trap and tank pressure switch clean?

Is there a constriction in the drain tube?

Is the pump breather pipe returning to the tank clogged or constricted?

Does the tank pressure switch work properly?

Is there a hole in the drain tube (only for versions with drain pump)?



b2 Overflow alarm

Is the water drain blocked?

Are the air trap and tank pressure switch clean?

Does the tank pressure switch work properly?

Is the load solenoid valve blocked? (see electrical wiring diagram - YV1 Filling solenoid valve)

Is the load solenoid valve relay stuck? (see electrical wiring diagram - RL5 relay of AP2 board)



C1 Boiler temperature rise too fast

Does the boiler level sensor work properly? The boiler could be empty.

Are no-original power resistances installed?



C2 Boiler temperature too high

Has the boiler temperature been changed (btC - increased above 90°C)?

Has the software alarm value been modified (bH,)?

Does the boiler level sensor work properly?

Boiler relay/relays sticked (see electrical wiring diagram - RL1/ RL2/ RL3 relays of AP2 board)?



C3 Tank temperature too high

Is the feed water above 60°C?

Has the software alarm value been modified (tHi)?

Is the rinse water temperature too high?

Is the tank relay stuck (see electrical wiring diagram - RL4 relay of AP2 board)?



C4 Tank temperature sensor out of order

Is the temperature sensor broken or disconnected (see electrical wiring diagram - ST1 Tank

probe)?

Is the temperature sensor connector correctly inserted?



C5 Tank temperature sensor out of order

Is the temperature sensor short-circuited (see electrical wiring diagram - ST1 Tank probe)?



C6 Boiler temperature sensor out of order

Is the temperature sensor broken or disconnected (see electrical wiring diagram - ST2 Boiler

probe)?

Is the temperature sensor connector correctly inserted?



C7 Boiler temperature sensor out of order

Is the temperature sensor short-circuited (see electrical wiring diagram - ST2 boiler probe)?



C10 Rinse temperature sensor out of order (only on machines with temperature sensor on the rinse circuit)

Is the temperature sensor broken or disconnected?

Is the temperature sensor connector correctly inserted?

C11 Rinse temperature sensor out of order (only on machines with temperature sensor on the rinse circuit)

Is the temperature sensor short-circuited?

C13 Rinse pump out of order (the water level of the boiler does not decrease)

Does the rinse pump work correctly?

Is there any bottleneck in the hose, that connect the air trap and the board sensor?



WARNING:

Alarms C2, C6 and C7 lock the boiler temperature control.

Alarms C3, C4 and C5 lock the tank temperature control.

In the case of alarms C6 and C7, the boiler waiting phase is not executed (the rinse may be performed

with cold water) and, during the initial warm-up and subsequent rinses ( btF > 0 ), the boiler heating

phase is not executed.

In the case of an open probe error ( C4, C6 e C10 ), the displayed temperature is 10°C

In the case of a shorted probe error ( C5,C7 e C11 ) , the displayed temperature is 99°C.



E1 Communication error

Is the connection between main board and control panel correct? Are the connectors correctly

connected?

Are connector contacts clean?

E2 Tank temperature low

Does the tank heating element work properly?

Are the connectors correctly connected?

Are the dishwasher feed voltage and current correct?

Is the relay RL4 (see electrical wiring diagram - RL4 relay of AP2 board) on the board disconnected

or faulty?

E3 Boiler temperature low

Does/do the boiler heating element/s work properly?

Are the connectors correctly connected?

Does the possible remote control switch connected to the heating element work correctly?

Is there power at the remote control switch input terminals?

Do boiler relays (see electrical wiring diagram - RL1/ RL2/ RL3 relays of AP2 board) work properly?



CAUTION: IF THERE IS A MALFUNCTION ON RELAY RL1 AND THE BOILER HEATING ELEMENTS

ARE FED BY MEANS OF A REMOTE CONTROL SWITCH, THE BOARD DOES NOT

HAVE TO BE REPLACED; JUST MOVE THE BOILER HEATING ELEMENT CONNECTOR TO

ONE OF THE TWO FREE POSITIONS ON THE BOARD.

CAUTION: WHEN ONE BRANCH OF THE HEATING ELEMENT DOES NOT WORK AND THE

OTHER TWO CONTINUE TO FUNCTION, ON REACHING THE SET TEMPERATURE VALUE,

ALARM 3 DISAPPEARS AND REAPPEARS IN THE SUBSEQUENT RINSE PHASE. THIS

ALSO OCCURS WHEN A PHASE IS MISSING.

Whirlpool dishwasher(6ADP8540) not cleaning dishes.


I did not have time to look up your model but if it fills and then just hums it most likely a bad or jamed motor. Most are sold as a compleet motor and pump complete. just a few twist or pull out clamps holding the pump housing in. A experanced repair guy can replace it with out moving the machine out from the cabnet. You may want too so you can see all the clamps and wires. Dont think like an engineer, you will make it harder than it is . Just kidding (you guys make a simple 5 step thing a 400 step process)

All the water will not drain out of the bottom of the washer


Hi there

No machine will drain all the water out of the machine as when the sump empties the drain pump cannot push anymore water out and when the pump stops, the water that is in the drain hose will run back into the machine most newish machines have a non return valve fitted to the drainage system but these do not always work as they are prone to getting things like small fish bones and seeds stuck in them.

I really hope this helps you.

Water not draining from the machine


If it IS the pump, it’s often because some relatively minor item (piece of cocktail stick/bit of nutshell/etc) has found its way past the filters and is blocking the blades of the pump. It is relatively simple to remove the inlet hose to the pump and clear the blockage (a pair of grips to pinch and remove the retaining clip, then the hose will slide off the fitting on the pump). I did this several times on my previous (Hotpoint) machine – and suspect it is no harder on the Bosch (which I now have). If that doesn’t work, you are half-way to replacing the pump, which is not a difficult DIY job and I’m surprised any competent professional repair man wanted to write off a machine where the pump had failed. A new pump should cost around £40-£50 – less than a quarter of the cost of a new machine. DIY fitting would maybe take a couple of hours; a pro ought to do it in less than an hour.

Hi, i work on these machines on a regular basis and until very recently i was a Meiko service engineer- the code ERR203 means that there was no change detected at the boiler level switch during emptying- be it on the fill or rinse cycle. This fault is mostly caused by the booster pump failing to pull water but could also be caused by blocked rinse jets or a faulty boiler level switch. Hope this info is of use to you , Kitcheneer
