Siemens SF64M 330GB dishwasher won't shut off

Was working perfectly till one night we noticed it had not shut off after too long a session on 'light wash'. The machine was empy when the door was opened but it was making a soft pumping noise. Tried resetting it and this worked once on the very light rinse prog. Have cleaned and checked everything recommended in the handbook including resetting without success. Have the feeling it could take only a press on theright switches to restore it, as most of the usual noises are there!

SOURCE: Siemens Model SL84-A - Water will not pump into dishwasher

heres a screen on the inlet to the water solinoid that plugs up with calcium alot of the time. shut off the water and take the bottom panel off the unit and you will see where the solinoid is. take off the water and then take the solinoid out and apart to clean. reassemble and you will be good to go.

SOURCE: Siemens dishwasher pump runs while door open wont turn on!

There are a few possibities...
if you remove the lid and take the two t20 screw off the left side panel at the front you could check the pressure chamber and its hose are not blocked. Use the link and go to page 4, part 263834 and 361113. You can also remove 165263 (remove t20 screw via the sump after all filters are removeds) this will expose the pump impellor and you can check for any obstruction. There may be water in the base of the d/w (base as below the tank, not under the filter) this will activate the flood safety and give the scenario you have described, so check valve, hoses etc for leaks. You will have to manual clear the water from the base pan to deactivate the safety device. Sit the front of the d/w on a large tower and tip the whole unit forward, the base water will then come out. Whilst you have the side panel off, check that the red rod connected to the pressure chamber is not activating the microswitch. ps I appreciate the link is not for your model but the part placing should be the same.
I hope this helps, Good Luck.

SOURCE: Hi. I have a

Hi -

The pump running continuously even with the door open means the anti-flood protection system has been activated. This is caused by one of the following:

- Defective or stuck float switch
- Stuck float
- Water leaking into the base of the machine

You're going to need to pull the washer out from under the counter to investigate. It's easiest to start by checking whether any water has leaked into the base. Switch the power off at the breaker/outlet and pull the washer all the way out.Then tilt the washer forward slowly to about 45 degrees with the door closed.

If water appears on the floor at the front of the washer, then water has leaked into the base of the machine. It's a good idea to put some old towels on the floor in front of the washer before doing this to absorb any water that comes out. Also, the washer is heavy and the bottom has a tendency to slide out, so get someone to help you tilt it, if possible.

If there is no sign of a leak, you need to remove the left side panel when facing the door and check the float. You'll need a Torx T20 screwdriver to remove the screws securing the panel - 2 at the front which are only visible with the door open and one at the back near the top of the panel. With the side panel removed, you should see an assembly similar to this one near the front corner:


I've ringed the float switch in red. This is activated by the red shaft running vertically below. You need to make sure the switch clicks on and off when you raise and lower the red lever. If the switch is stuck on it will need to be replaced. Hopefully, it's just stuck and raising and lowering it a few times will resolve the problem

Hope this helps. Please try this, then let me know if you need further assistance. Please also include the full model number - SL84A30 is incomplete and there are several possible models that could be your dishwasher. The full number will be something like SL84A305UC/12 and I will need to know this in the event that any replacement parts are required.
