Dishwashers do not drain the water has to be pumped out of them.
If the water is not being pumped out on any cycle then the pump has failed and you either need to replace the water pump (which will be quite expensive) or buy a new dish washer. Pump failure is a pretty common in part because of the amount of debris many users don't rinse from items before placing them in the washer. Also the filters at the base of the washer need to be removed and cleaned frequently and this is often neglected.
If the water is only remaining in the washer for the final rinse cycle but is otherwise being pumped out on the wash cycles, then the issue will be with the electronic control board.
I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "floods at the end of the cycle". Is water leaking from the washer and where from?
The mushroom float isn't a water level sensor to determine when the washer should pump out. It's a second level safety feature to prevent flooding if the washer overfills. The flow meter regulates the water level in the washer.
Your pump is obviously working and there is no blockage in the drain hose, etc as the water pumps out when you lift the mushroom float. It sounds like the pump isn't receiving a signal from the controller to pump out at the end of the wash cycle. Lifting the float bypasses the controller and runs the drain pump.
Please try the following simple test:
1. Switch the programme selector to "Off" 2. Empty a bucket of water into the bottom of the washer 3. Turn the programme selector to any wash cycle 4. Press and hold the Reset button (start/stop) for at least 3 seconds.The washer should drain.
Please try this test and let me know if the washer pumps out. Please can you also be a little more specific about how and where the washer is flooding.
Sounds like your recirculating pump is clogged If it is water can't get up enough pressure to turn the sprayers. You'll need to start pulling parts out of the bottom inside to get to that pump. I don't work on a lot of Bosch, but that sure sounds like it to me. I see this a lot. Hope this helps...
C1 - Partially Blocked Drain - This error will occur when dishwasher was unable to pump out water in less than 95 seconds. Check drain line for debris and blockage. If clear, check for a restricted drain valve in the pump. Check the pressure sensor for correct operation as it sounds like it may be defective and thinks that the machine is still full of water after it has emptied.
Most washers do not fill they spray the dishes. When enough water has accumulated in the bottom a float switch shuts off the water and turns on the pump to remove the water. If the pump motor does not remove the water the cycle will not continue but the timer will. There may be something clogging the pump and resulting in an overload condition for the motor. This would account for the smell. A pump may turn freely when you spin it by hand because you cannot spin it fast enough by hand to determine if the pump is obstructed. Does the cycle drain the water? If the cycle stops and there is water in the bottom not being pumped out then you should look at the pump and the motor to determine problem.
Arlo, sounds like your pump isn't working right. You should hear it pushing water about during the wash cycle. If not, check the filter screen on the unit first. Next, we'll have to talk about what to check ... pump motor or timer.
Hi, I have an ASKO 1606 and it stopped turning on. This happened after the sink drain got blocked. All that would happen when switched on was the sound of the pump trying to pump water out. I opened up the panel on the back and found the tray inside full of water. As I started scooping the water out I heard what sounded like a switch clicking on and off. I think there must be a safety float switch or something. Once the water in the tray was cleared everything worked fine again. No more hand washing dishes!! WOOHOO
If it gravity drains, but the pump does not push out the water.......replace the drain pump. I just repaired an 8-year-old Frigidaire dishwasher with this very problem, and although it sounded like the pump was operating, it was not....it was just vibrating. I replaced the drain pump and it now works perfectly. I am a service tech with 38 years experience.
