SOURCE: bosch dishwasher motor keeps running no water

Hola Lewis!

This is such an easy repair, you'll be shocked and surprised! The reason this is happening is that the computer or timer has detected a "flood" condition and has permanently energized the drain pump to clear the "flood".

What you'll need to fix it...
1.) Shop-Vac (for vacuuming water) with a crevice tool (like one of these)
2.) T20 Torx bit with a driver. Torx sizing here. (You can get a set at Home Depot or Lowes)

All you gotta do now is get down on the floor and remove the kick panel. Then remove the screws holding the water valve and lift it up out of its' plastic holding. Now your shop-vac w/ crevice tool can be used. Stick the crevice tool in there (about 10") and vacuum up all the water that's been trapped in the basin. (you may need a flashlight to see what's going on back in there...) After the water is gone, your DW will work fine.

Here's how it works... About 10" behind the inlet valve is a "float" made of styrofoam. When water gets into the basin, the float rises and eventually trips a "flood condition" switch. This switch shuts the unit down and will only allow the drain pump to operate. So what you want to do is get the water out of the basin.

There may be a reason for the basin flooding, though. Suds (caused by too much (or the wrong) detergent), an actual water leak from the valve, etc... So after you get the water out of there and the unit is working again, you may want to monitor it (like, only run it when someone is home) for a while just to make sure that a real flood does not occur.

Hope this helps.

Ok, heres what you have to do. Remove the lower toe kick and then remove the panel behind that to gain entry to the lower portion of the dishwasher wher the guts are. You will also have to pull out the little brackets that hold the toe kick and all the screws will be t-15 or t-20 torx (little star shaped bits) Once you have all the panels out of the way, you will find water in the bottom of the tray there tripping the overflow switch. Remove the water with a wet vac or towel or something and the drain pump will stop running. If you can't or don't want to do all this, then just let the dishwasher sit for a few days or so and eventually the water will just evaporate and everything will work normally. Hope This Helps!

SOURCE: Overfill Protection tripped on ASKO D3112 dishwasher

remove the front toe kick. you should have 6 torx screws. four in the top 2 in the front. your float switch will be in the front center .the float is a piece of styrofoam - the float many times is what you find jammed up making the unit believe it has water in the base

SOURCE: Overfilling fault

I believe the washer has had a flood type situation.there is normally a flood switch in the very bottom of the dishwasher right at the very floor,if water get into the bottom tray it floats a piece polystyrene foam wich triggers a little micro switch wich will run the pump continually & show Overfilling fault at the same time..The water in the tray needs to be mopped out with a rag or spunge so that the styrene foam can drop back down.The blockage you had may have caused this flood situation some how.The overfill fault was probably due to the washer not pumping out,So that may be ok now that you have cleared the blockage.hope this helped.

SOURCE: Asko D3530 water inlet fault code, water valve is

All im going to say is i think you have a faulty inlet valve.the water is probably only trickling into the machine & taking forever to fill,the computer board has probably picked up that the washer is taking to long to fill & has thrown up a fault code relating to the fill or inlet valve.Also sometimes if the filters in the bottom are clogged the water cant get to the wash motor & the motor cant load up with water.The motor runs without load on it & the computer board interprets this as slow fill or inlet valve problem.

Bosch dishwasher doesn't work. water not coming


Hi Gilgol, The link below is a Bosh Dishwasher list of error codes, I believe your error code is E3....CHEERS..
http://removeandreplace.com/2015/10/09/bosch-dishwasher-error-codes-how-to-clear-what-to-check/
Bosch Dishwasher Error Code E3
Fault Condition: Not filling with water
Repair or Check: If the water supply cut-off valve on the dishwasher is completely open but the dishwasher will not fill with water then shut off the water supply and unplug the dishwasher. Remove the water fill line and check to see if the water inlet screen valve is plugged up. If so then replace the water valve. Cleaning the screen can make the issue worse so always replace if the screen is clogged. The valve can get stuck open from gunk and therefore flood or overfill.

I have a bosch lifestyle dishwasher that keeps coming up e17...we have had plumbers around and there is no problem with pipes or water so what else can it be


You did not specify the model so I can only assume what means the alarm code E17 - probably water level too high - flow sensor.
The dishwasher has, for some reason detected an overfill and is reporting that through this error code. The flow sensor note is there as that can cause this fault code to be displayed.

Water light is on


The light can come for a few reasons. Not emptying, not filling, over filling or water leaking into base.
Probably jug impellor part number (424099) from espares, buyspares or bosch direct.
No fix unfortunately, this problem manifests as unit starts to fill and motor does not switch on. Eventually the unit overfills and the pump and fill start to alternate and check water light comes on. If this is the fault then this part is the solution it runs in line with the inlet valve and side fill chamber, take the left side panel off (looking from the front) it is tucked away behind the hoses bottom left. Check water light can also come on if the unit is not pumping, if this is the case, repost and I will try and talk you through clearing this fault.

I have an ASKO D3250 and it sounds like the pump is continuously trying to grind food, or something like that - it is quite loud - and it never begins the wash - no water is pumped. I checked the manual...


if no water is entering the machine the problem is not going to be in the pump the noise you hear is the pump running with too litle water check for power at the water valve if proper voltage is present you have a faulty or plugged valve if no power check the float switch it is there to keep the dishwasher from over filling it may be stuck in the over fill position which would explain the fault code you mentioned . try to reset it and test .

F2 overfill. how to reset?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description "f2 overfill. how to reset?" It is likely nothing very serious.

The "F2" with Asko dishwashers means the control is indicating an overfill has been detected...but I gather you know that based on your post.
Whether the unit has actually overfilled or not remains to be seen, but to reset it is fairly simple...if nothing else is at fault.

**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**

The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. If water is present, with the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base.

By way of removing the water from the overfill basin should "reset" the unit. If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump.

Try this and let me know what you find and I`ll assist you in moving forward if necessary.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Gurgles with no water coming in; keeps trying to run with door open.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

When the door is opened do the lights all flash, or are the flashing regardless if door is open or closed ?

Based on your description I`d suspect the unit has sensed an overfill problem...the flashing "LED`s" is how the Asko indicate this scenario.

The gurgling is simply due to the drain pump being on continuously.Though you say the machine is empty, the overfill basin may be full of water.

**Turn off the power to the unit via the house breaker before attempting any repairs or service**

If you remove the toe panel/kick plate below the door, check to see if the basin is full of water or has any sign of water being present. If left several days it will typically evaporate and appear to be normal again...until it overfills again.

There are other factors which could cause this of course, including a faulty pressure switch, but we can go down that path once you inspect the overfill basin for water.

Good luck.

Keeps running even when shut off and states "overfilling".


sounds like the water solinoid valve is stuck in the open position. look at the hole where the water comes in machine. alot of times it will be a slow dribble of water which overtime overfills the machine. just replace water valve if thats the case
