Question about Moyer Diebel 24 in. 501HT Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My 501HT has stopped draining. It runs through a couple of cycles until the water inside builds up enough to leak out through the door. I have tested the cam switches #3 and #4 and they are opening and closing as the cam turns. How do I test the drain S/V and how do i know if the pump is reversing?

How do I stop baumatic dishwasher leaving a sticky residue on glasses and other articles on the top shelf?


Make your dishwasher more effective with these quick tips: 1. Check the sprayer arm. When I opened the dishwasher door during a wash cycle, I learned that some of my utensils are too tall, and they blocked the sprayer arm from rotating. Problem solved! Also look at the holes on the sprayer arm to make sure they are not clogged. Use a toothpick if you need to dislodge anything.
2. Check the drain. Look inside the bottom of the dishwasher and remove any food or objects from the filter. Run the garbage disposal to clear it out before turning on the dishwasher since they share the same drain.
3. Don't overuse detergent. It's a mistake to assume you should always fill up the detergent cup. Check the manual and your detergent. On mine, filling it to the first line (about a third) is enough. Too much detergent can leave residue and etch your glasses.
4. Check your water temperature. If it takes a long time for the hot water to reach your kitchen sink, that means the dishwasher isn't getting enough hot water at the beginning either, and that makes it harder to wash away the food particles and grease. If you need to, turn on the dishwasher after you've used hot water at the kitchen sink.
5. Clean the inside of your dishwasher. Grease, detergent residue, and calcium deposits build up inside your dishwasher. You can use vinegar to wash them away. On a regular basis (every few months or so), run a wash cycle while your dishwasher is empty. Don't use detergent, but turn on the dishwasher and let it run for a few minutes until water starts to fill up the bottom. Then add one or two cups of white vinegar to the water and let it finish the cycle.
Sometimes using a dishwasher is an experiment in finding the right combination for hard or soft water, the detergent, and a rinse aid.
Best of luck

Drain pump won't turn off


Hi,

The reason the drain pump continously runs is because it is trying to remove any water too avoid any further flood as there is a flood in the base of the unit which activates the float switch and constantly activates the drain pump until the water has gone. Isolate the unit at the power switch and remove the bottom panel under the door panel. Dry up the water as best possible with a towel. Run the unit again and check for any water leaks. You may just have over sudded the unit with too much detergent. Only use 2 teaspoons of powder. To start with while testing don't use any detergent. Good luck

Hope this helps.

Major calcium build up. what will cut through it?


Hello there and happy new year as well
How to Clean a Dishwasher Dishwasher manufactures tell us that the inside of dishwashers should not need cleaning---after all, it is constantly being cleaned as you wash your dishes. You know better. There is a slimy feeling on the walls or door gasket of your dishwasher---or there is something black "growing" at the bottom of the dishwasher by the drain---or it doesn't smell very nice---or there is a white coating on the heating element (even manufacturers acknowledge this one as common). What do you do? The first thing is to try to prevent as much of this as possible: 1) Be sure your water is coming into the dishwasher at a minimum of 120°; 140° is even better. If your water heater is a long ways from your dishwasher, before you turn on the dishwasher you may need to run the water into the sink until the required temperature is reached. If the water is not hot enough, the detergent (even gel detergents) won't completely dissolve, and you get the slimy feeling on the walls and gasket of your dishwasher. You also foster the growth of bacteria and mold or mildew in your dishwasher. 2) Be sure you are using the right kind of dishwashing detergent. Manufacturers usually recommend using certain brands. That is because they have tested those brands in their machines, so they know they will work. Others may do fine, but they haven't been tested. 3) Be sure you are using the right amount of dishwashing detergent. Ironically using either too much or too little can cause similar problems. The amount you need depends on the hardness of your water, not the amount of food left on your dishes. Okay, you've got all that under control. Now, how do you clean the dishwasher? Problem 1: Slimy feeling on walls and gasket ---Use good old soap and water (yes, soap to clean soap residue!) and clean away. Be sure to rinse well. If you don't you may have suds coming out from around the door the next time you use the dishwasher! Problem 2: Something black "growing" by the grates at the bottom of the dishwasher ---You have a mold problem. This is also what causes a bad odor to "grow" in the dishwasher. The mold is caused by food particles not getting fully pushed through the drain hose when the dishwasher drains. The drain hose is corrugated, and bits of food particles can sometimes collect on the ridges and in the valleys of the corrugation. Given the right circumstances, this can cause a gradual buildup inside the hose, just like cholesterol in our arteries. The presence of moisture and lack of sunlight in the hose allows mold to grow on these food particles. You will want to remove the grates at the bottom or back of your dishwasher (usually removing just a couple of screws will do it) and clean with bleach water (a cup of bleach in a gallon of water) as far down as you can reach. After you have done that, replace the grate, put the rest of the bleach water in the bottom of the dishwasher and run a regular cycle (no dishes, please!). Why not just put the bleach water in and run the cycle? Because that will kill the mold, but will not remove its build-up. You want to remove the build-up first, as far as you can reach---it's easier to remove when it's live. Then kill what's left in the drain. If your problem was serious enough, you may want to replace your drain hose, too. Problem 3: Brown spots on the door gasket ---This is mildew. Mildew can also cause a stale odor in the dishwasher. Use the bleach water recipe to clean the gasket, and then run the rest of the bleach water through a cycle, just as for Problem 2. Problem 4: White coating on the heating element ---This is a build up of minerals, mostly from your water. You may have heard people recommend putting TANG® Drink Mix in the dishwasher and running it through a cycle. This does work to help remove the calcium from the heating element. That is because there is citric acid in TANG®. However, the sugar in it may contribute to other problems you have been trying to clear up. So why not just use plain citric acid---what an idea! You can often buy the crystals in a drug store or in the canning section of the grocery store---it is used for making jelly with a fruit that does not have enough acid in it to allow it to jell. Fill the dispenser cup with the crystals (3--4 ounces), and run a cycle. If the build-up is unusually thick, you may need to do this a second time. So, now you have a clean dishwasher! How do you keep it that way? After all, who wants to have to go through all of those steps every so often? The best thing to do is occasionally run it empty with a cup of white vinegar and a cup of baking soda. How often depends on your water quality, how often you use your dishwasher, how much food you leave on your plates, etc.o there and happy new year as well

Not draining, stuck on first wash cycle.


The heating element is your most likely suspect. The timer will not advance until the proper water temp. is reached. After the cycle runs for 5-10 minutes, crack open the door. Let the water stop flying around. Open the door wide. You should have released a big ball of steam from inside the machine.
No steam = no heat = no timer movement.
The heating element and the wires leading to it need to be checked and tested. Specifically, check the resistance of the element. You should get a real reading from it on a multitester, not zero or overlimit or infinity. If you can handle all of this, any repair/replacement should be no problem. Good luck

Bosch SHU3036UC/U11 dishwasher does not stop filling with water


Hi,
It sounds as if the main program board has developed a fault - as it should come to a complete stop. The fact it kept the water valve open with the door open is a serious fault- so I would have it checked before using it again.

Most machines have a water-stop feature - so if it develops a leak - it will shut off the water. This clearly didn't happen.

Water not draining, how should the switch be set?


Hi There,

I am not an expert, but I have the same dish washer. The washer motor may not run in reverse. I had the same problem and a couple of the timer switches and the started relay were bad.
Fixed it but two years later it has the same problem. BTW, my unit still has a timer relays, the new once don’t'

Also don't switch on the delime switch, this will hold the cycle until you switch it off again.
Regards,
Thomas

Brand new dishwasher not working


try this test: add water (one gallon each try) by hand fill and try the cycle again. Continue until light goes out. If light never goes out, then faulty water level switch or wiring. If light goes out, then water inlet valve is stopping too early, but need more info to determine why. Try this test: open door and find the door switch. Then activate the switch and turn on machine to watch water come in. It should not just "dribble" in; try to determine if water pressure is sufficient coming in.
