Reset anti flood device

Don't know how to pull dishwasher out to tip it. I know why the anti flood device has activated - my kitchen sink overflowed and water flowed across the counter above and behind the dishwasher so presumably some got in. It looks like pulling it out is extremely difficult - will it be screwed to the counter? Assuming I'm right about why the anti flood device activated is there any other way, other than pulling out and tipping, to reset the device?

SOURCE: Dishwasher was tipped and won't run

I have the same problem if you take off the tray below the front door and set a small blow heater in there it will dry the out the anti flood switch. It usally takes about 25 mins for the machine to start working again.

Hello,
If you cannot find a leak then check that if you are using the 4 or 5 in one tablets that you are not using rinse aid seperately as this is also in the tablets and salt.Too much rinse aid can cause the dish washer to froth up and this can overflow down the underside of the door causing the problem you have.

Hope this helped.

E15 i want reset it ?


If this is a Bosch dishwasher, the E15 error indicates water in the base of the unit. You need to unplug the dishwasher and pull it out (if it is an under-counter unit) carefully. Empty the water from the base. Sometimes tipping the unit so that the base is tilted 45 degrees from the floor will help the water flow out. Make sure that the entire base is dry.

Replace the dishwasher under the cabinet (if needed) and plug it back in. If the error repeats at the next cycle, you need to determine where the dishwasher is leaking. It could be the outlet hose, the pump or the tub. Replace the bad part. If the dishwasher is under warranty, contact Bosch.

I hope this helps.

(if you recently had a flood either under the kitchen sink or an overflow at that sink, you just need to dry the dishwasher base.)

Two possible reasons come to my mind. First, and simplest, I've seen Dishwasher installations that did not use a air gap in the Dishwasher drain (usually a dome device mounted on the back of the kitchen sink or sometimes mounted in the wall just above the sink in older homes).When an air gap is not used, it is imperative that a high loop is formed in the dishwasher drain line, and tied up in that position (usually under the kitchen sink,as high as possible- the underside of the sink faucet usually works, or a screw into the bracing under the counter top to wrap a soft wire looped around the drain hose to hold it there permanently). If you do not use a air gap, or have a high loop in the dishwasher drain hose, then likely you are getting a back flow of dirty water into your dishwasher from the drain plumbing to which the dishwasher is connected (likely the garbage disposer or the tail from the sink basin.) So every time you either run the disposer (if you have one), or drain the sink basin, some of that contaminated, dirty water may be siphoning back into the dishwasher There are some exceptions, as some dishwashers including some whirlpool models, have a anti siphon ball device built into the drain pump housing.( You should also check your local plumbing code. They may require an air gap in your dishwasher drain line regardless of anything else.) Secondly,the water inlet valve may be sticking open, or not completely seating closed after the fill cycle. This could be indicated by a very gradual accumulation of clean, clear water in the bottom of the tub, to the point of completely filling the bottom of the tub to the point of overflow at the dam at the front bottom of the tub. The speed of overflow will be determined by how poorly the diaphragm inside the valve is seating. If you suspect this may be the problem, pull the rubber hose off the OUTLET end of the valve, with the machine in the OFF position or better yet UNPLUGGED (water and electricity do not mix, and can KILL you) ,and see that there is not a continuous flow or trickle of water. If there is any flow of water, in this scenario, then you have a bad inlet water valve, and the valve should be replaced rather than attempting to repair. Be sure to reconnect the rubber hose to the inlet valve before plugging the machine back in and attempting to run the machine, or you will have a high pressure flood, and likely electrical shorting under the machine which could likely ruin the machine.

I just bought a dishwasher SE34E200SK. The washing program always gets stuck in program 3 and it cant move further unless one has to turn it manually. Also it doesnot empty out the waste water after...


Hello

Most faults can be referred to the fact that the Anti Flood Overflow device has activated.

Modern day dishwashers like those manufactured that have a built in safety feature protecting the dishwasher against flooding. The technical term is 'Anti Flood Device'.

In the base of the dishwasher in the plinth there is a float switch. This is your 'Anti Flood Device'. In the event of your dishwasher over filling, the plinth fills with water, the float rises and actuates the switch.

Firstly, it will send a signal to the programmer device to notify there is a fault and output a message in the form of a code to some sort of display.

Secondly, the pressure switch acts as the water level indicator for the sump of the dishwasher so when the water level rises the pressure switch will activate the drain pump.

So before you consider throwing good money at new dishwasher, try doing a bit of fault finding your self and you might save yourself a ton of money.

THE anti flood device has been activated. I have emptied the salt tank, how do I reset the safety valve on the water inlet hose?


The answer is that you don't reset the anti-flood device. The anti-flood device re-sets itself when there is no risk of a leak. I don't really understand why you emptied the salt tank . . . ?

I cannot help you any further than this as you haven't specified your brand and model of dishwasher. If you can post these, I will try try to help further - if it's a model I support.

Aeg favorit 64070vi, i 30 fault, think that the anti flood switch is triggered


Thanks to all.
What we couldn't work out is what is actual mechanism of anti-flood triggering, and how therefore to reset it - and why all these other fixes work - but then it occurred to us, that problem is when water gets into the base and can't get out.
Our problem was that water inlet at top of washer came loose so water ran down outside the drum but inside the dishwasher, into the base. We tried the tipping method but this just moved water around and I think there must be sensor there which, if it stays wet, leaves anti-flood triggered.
This makes sense because other high level overflows from drum discharge into base - so if it was to overflow, it goes into sealed base only, wets the sensor and triggers anti-flood.
Our solution was patience - tipped it fully on its side, pointed a hot air blower into it for hour or so, then left it overnight. Tipped it back next morning, water which had run into side panel ran out, so it was upright with its base dry - and (touch wood) it worked like a charm.

I have AL01 on my dish washer eny ideas?


Hi,

AL01 indicates activation of the anti flood device.

It sounds like water has leaked into the base of your machine.
Pull the appliance out, unplug it from the wall socket and tip it rearwards about 45 degrees. Drain the water out and once empty the anti flood should reset.

Try the machine again. If it faults during the test you may have a leak into the base.

Good luck with the repair
Hope this helps
Thanks.

Bosch dish washer SGS56E02GB


anti flood device has been activated, this means you have water in the base of appliance. most likely a leak, or if you have been using 3 in 1 tablets, and rinse aid this will over foam appliance and foams leaks into base.. try tipping d/w back to let water out of base..then try d/w again... if anti flood activates again...call an engineer.. ps check big nut that secures salt container to base of d/w, it can come loose which will cause water to leak into base ally
