Re: Neff Dishwasher

It sound like a detergent cup issue (not opened in time). The detergent cup itself can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. Let me know with your results. Good luck!

Selecting any programme , my Auto 3 in 1 dishwasher will only go onto a rinse cycle

reset it, switch off the mains & back on again, or you could have a problem with the tablet release. so it thinks its finished washing.

When our Neff dishwasher has completed a cycle most of the tablet is still in the open dispenser. Can you advise ?

Check and clean both spray arms.
make sure nothing is restricting the movements of the arms. Have you selected the correct programme? Quick wash may not always dissolve tablets, you may need to put the tablet straight into cutlery basket at start of quick wash programme

Dishwasher leaves baked on soap scum on al dishes and everything ....even on the dishwasher ...tried all kinds of soap and rinse aid...nothing works...cleaned entire washer out cleaned all filters...

I imagine you've already checked that you're using the correct amount of detergent for the wash programme, and that you're washing the correct quantity of dishes for the wash programme, though if not, try that first!

Is the dishwasher heating the water to the correct temperature? If it's not rinsing at a hot enough temperature, the detergent may leave a residue. In that case, your dishes would probably also be less than entirely clean; they could be slightly greasy when removed from the machine.

Another possibility is that insufficient water is supplied to the dishwasher, so it might be worth checking the tap that lets water through the hose and into the machine. Does the tap turn on fully? Does it turn off properly?

The other thing that might be worth trying is an empty wash: put the machine through a wash programme WITH detergent but WITHOUT dishes, at the programme with the highest temperature. Is all the soap scum washed away? Or is there still a residue inside the machine? If the empty wash works, you probably need to give your machine a maintenance wash once a month or so. This is often the case if you usually wash your dishes a few at a time on a short programme.

I hope some of that helps. Good luck!

Dishwasher is not heating the water and the cycle does not stop so always dirty water in the bottom.

use the hot water supply to the washer.You can replace the element if you want but i never do....the hot water supply is ample hot enough....clean your filters...if the cycle is not changing from wash to rinse and so on your timer has failed.

Dishes left dirty - possible blockage

You can probably either unscrew a knob and remove the wash arms or they'll snap off and on. Take off the wash arms and make sure there aren't big chunks of food collected under there. If there's a plastic washer in the wash arm assembly, and it's looking worn, you'd be surprised how much quieter and better your machine will run by replacing it.

Neff S5433 Dishwasher - Detergent tablet not dissolving


Please run the machine without detergent for 2-3 washes. Also try using a little hot water. Also, don't used cleaner and softener together but add softener on the last rinse.

NEFF Dishwasher Model 5623.25 keeps sticking during running

At what point in the programme does it stick, i.e. is it washing or rinsing or draining, does the water get hot?

Neff S5555 - empties water but stuck in draining mode.

if this machine uses an electrical-mechanical timer with cam switches, the try oiling the shaft bushings both for the timer motor and cams-the timer may be getting stuck because of dry or corroded bushings
