Question about Neff 24 in. S5443X2 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Continuous draining - unable to reset - all lights on

With power switch on water enters the machine but is continuously pumped out. All pushbutton lights are lit. Holding the hot wash select button pushed in stops the pump operating and turns off all other lights except the rinse, BUT after 15 seconds or so the pump starts again and all the lights come on again. Help please!! Is there a float switch on this model? There does not appear to be any leaks or accumulated water in the machine or on the floor.

Cut power for minutes, and see if this can stop and reset the machine.

If the machine does not reset, then you need to test the pump and valve solenoid, to ensure it is not stuck on drain position, by energizing the solenoid.

If the pump solenoid is fine, and pump opens and close, then the problem is usually the control panel, rarely can also be a contact on wiring harness to the pump.

Kitchenaid dishwasher kuds30ixssa has pump running but have no lights on control panel with door closed.


Did you have a power outage recently? They are notorious for damaging circuit boards--usually about 3-4 weeks after the power interruption strange things will either start happening or *not* happening with appliances due to damaged computer chips on the boards starting to fail. Your symptoms indicate either a blown user interface(push button panel) or a defective main control board(board with the brains on it) or both!

I have an AEG F55002ViOP dishwasher. It's making a strange grinding sound and showing error code 30. Can anyone advise how to solve this please.


Error "i30" means that water remains in base because leakage or overflow. In this case, in order to prevent flooding, drain pump running continuously.
When we talk about AEG dishwasher, drain pump works even the power is turned off (must be connected to the wall outlet, otherwise anti-flooding system will not work).
The noise what you heard during operation indicates that something is blocking the drain pump.
Remedy: you should first remove the water from the bottom of the dishwasher and determine leakage then check why the drain pump makes noise.

If you work around the dishwasher, you always take care that appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.

Good luck.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you


Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.






Heating Element Assembly

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element assembly might have burned out. The heating element assembly heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element assembly can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Check Fault Codes

If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the wiring diagram and tech sheet in the dishwasher that will provide information on the fault.


Drain Pump

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective You'll need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Touchpad

If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

Bosch Aquatak Clic 125 running problems - keeps pulsing and unable to reach continuous full pressure - has been working well up to now - water pressure OK


After the machine has stared the wash cycle stop the machine. Check the water level in the sump. It it is below the required fill, the pump will drain the sump, suck air resulting in pulsing.

Add a modest amount of water about a quart or so and try continuing the wash. see if it reduces the pulsing. Continue to add to determine if it is the water level.

If you confirm that the water level is low, depending on the model it usually fills on a timer. If it had been working properly then either the stop valve under the sink has allowed the internal rubber washer to dislodge into the flow path, or the inline filter at the connection to the dishwasher is clogged or the electric solenoid at the washer is failing and not allowing the water to enter at the prescribed amount.

Hope this helps?
Below the stop valve do to the hot water is known to have the rubber seal fail which can plug the hose limiting the water flow. The valve can be repaired without removing it. The stem with the house water off can be removed and a new rubber seal installed. remember to remove the debris from the failed seal.

My asko dishwasher will not turn off. The pumps runs but nothing happens. The dial has no control over the machine at all. I have turned off the breaker but wonder should I order parts or can it. We...


Hello Steve,

Welcome to FixYa.

As an Asko expert and based on your post, the good news...I can fairly confidently tell you It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.

What the pump running continuous means is the timer has indicated a overfill.


**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. There will likely be water present.

With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal operation...it should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump...
(it could mean a faulty drain pump so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)

**The float is primarily the last ditch safety to prevent disaster in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit and the continuous pumping is
letting you know to service or call for service to the unit**

Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary.

Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Indesit IDL 500 Pump noise when switched on not continuous, sounds like it is acting in surges, and the pre-wash indicator light flashes in time with the surges. Is this a fault, what is the solution?


this indicates that there is water in the base of the unit activating the safety float switch... usually a leak..or an overfill due to blocked filter
Power off & remove plug
1st port of call would be to drain the base by pulling forward and tipping back.. make sure you have large towels to hand...
Once drained power up again and put on quick wash...
if cycle completes verify no leak by tipping back again and no water should flow..
if there is a leak then the flashing would resume during cycle... and best get someone in to locate as there are a few possibilities...

What is causing the drain pump to continue running


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.
