Question about Dishwashers

Drain pipe keeps popping off

The pipe that goes from the base of the dishwasher and runs up the back of the dishwasher to supply the water for the top rack keeps popping off where it connects to the base of the dishwasher every 2-3rd cycle - easy to push back into place but annoying. When it disconnects it leaves residue all over dishes at end of cycle. How can the pipe be secured permenantly? Needs to be fixed before property is leased to tennants.

    No clamp there at all. It just 'clicks' into place before popping out during the next couple of cycles - doesn't look like there should be a clamp there.

There is suppose to be a clamp on the rubber/plastic tube where it goes on the bottom . Normally these clamps are made so as you have to squeeze it apart and while holding it squeezed open, push it over the bottom fixture with the hose between it and the bottom spout . Good luck

Do you put it on cold water pipe

Yes the cold water pipe as the new models only have one supply. You connect the pipe to a cold water supply it then goes into the dishwasher and the machine heats the water up to the required temperature. Don't forget to fit the drain pipe into your waste pipe also to take the dirty water away.

E3 water drainng error

Some drain problems come from the washer drain hose not being high enough to allow for the water to fill in the dishwasher. Make sure the hose is held as high as the washer top as possible before it drains into the sink drain pipe. A good example is your cloths wash machine the drain hose comes from the bottom of the machine then it goes up to the drain that is higher than the basket. This keeps the water level high enough to wash clothes. The dishwasher works the same way. The drain hose must be slightly higher or as high as the needed level in the machine to work. In most cases as high as the dishwasher top or close to it. Simple raise the drain hose.

Drain pump running when unit starts but no water to appliance

The machine probably has water in the base (not visibly in the machine, but in the base where the conponents are). Pull the machine out, sit the front on a large towel and holding the back of the d/w pull it towards you. Any water trapped in the base will drain out. It may be a fair amount as the flood safety switch will activate on approx 1.5 ltrs. Once you've cleared the water run a prewash or quickwash to check d/w. Hope this helps.

Drain pump keeps running and F2 error

This is caused by the "anti flood" system being activated. Consists of a polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer. Once water leaks / spills are detected it activates and puts the washer in pump out mode only. You need to dry the base / check for leaks / rectify leaks (normaly a small hole in pipe or pipe clamp).

Asko D3230 dishwasher pump will not turn off, with main switch on

This is a anti flood activation. It is a safety device (polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer) that keeps the drain motor running due to water leak / spill detection. Dry the water and rectify the leak (normaly pipe or clamp leak) and this should solve the problem.

There is water in built in dishwasher when cycle is done.when you open door it runs out and rest remains in bottom of dish washer about an inch and a half of water.

The drain hose is supposed to go from the garbage disposal to a high point under the sink in back to keep the water from gravity draining into the dishwasher when it shuts off. If you look you will see that the hose is laying on the bottom of the sink cabinet. Get a hook and wire it up so you're not washing dishes with water from the disposer. Be sure to run the disposer. if it is clogged with food the dishwasher will not drain, water will back up and drain back into the dishwasher. Also make sure that the pipe exiting the disposer isn't clogged and draining slowly. hhe best solution is to have an air gap that mounts on the sink. It goes between the washer and the disposer to keep this from happening.

Does Not Drain ... We Don't even Use it

I know you're probably not needing this anymore, but for anyone else who has a similar problem...

Your dishwasher is installed wrong. You should never get water back into it from washing dishes in the sink. (of course - unless it is installed wrong) The "drain air gap" that you should see on top of your sink is to prevent water from back-flowing into your dishwasher. Sometimes plumbers put in a "stand pipe" (a pipe that goes way up in your sink cabinet underneath, but just is actually the pipe from the dishwasher and they loop it up higher than the bottom of the sink level in the cabinet. That way if you see water in your sink, most likely you can figure out why it is backed up before it gets higher than the stand pipe and goes into your dishwasher. Since you don't see the air gap device on top of the sink then I'm guessing whoever installed your dishwasher either put in a stand pipe and didn't put it up high enough, or more likely didn't put one in at all and therefore you are getting back-flow into the dishwasher.

Drain pump keeps running AEG oko favorit

This seems like the anti flood system (polystireen float / micro switch) at the base of the washer is triggered,\. This puts the washer in pump out mode and stops inlet of water via the inlet solinoid. Dry the water on the base and then check for any water leaks. (pipe leak
