Water Sitting In Dishwasher after Completion of Cycle

The cycles run properly and water drains out correctly during each phase of the cycle, but overnight, the dishwasher is full of water. We've had a repair person look at the dishwasher, but he couldn't find a problem. Is there a water intake valve which could be malfunctioning? Thanks.

Re: Water Sitting In Dishwasher after Completion of Cycle

An obstruction in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off properly. You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! In case cleaning will not help, you should replace the valve. Good luck !

Not finishing cycle

Is it draining out the water?? Dishwashers fill, spray, and drain more than several times during a cycle. After starting a cycle, let the unit fill, start spraying, and then cancel the cycle--listen for the drain pump activating and pumping out the water. If water is not being drained properly(within a certain time limit), the unit will error code out and stop. Also, make sure the filter is clear--if it gets clogged with "muck", enough water won't be sprayed onto the dishes properly, the pump will require too much energy to try to pump water, the control will sense this and shut down the unit to protect it.

I have got DWN 38 L Bendix dishwasher, problem is that during the wash cycle water starts to come under the washer. To ,me it looks like it can't take the water out.

If water is collecting under the dishwasher then there could be a few reasons.
1. door gasket is leaking - check for defect and replace if required
2. the wash or drain pump could be leaking water. Seals are not sitting properly or drain hose is cracked.

What does U3 mean?

U3 can mean quite a few things depending on when it occurs and which drawer it is.

It could mean Lid fault and will show up as soon as you start dishwasher.

It could mean drain problems if it occurs later in the wash cycle and there is water left behind.

It could mean the wash arm is not sitting properly if it occurs during wash cycle.

Draining after completion of cycle

Miele dishwashers are typical not to drain all of the water. It is the way the siphoning system is designed. You will always have a bit of standing water after cycle completion but should not be above the bottom filter. You can manually drain the dishwasher by selecting any cycle and letting it run for 30 seconds and then turn the dishwasher off. Hope this helps

Dishwasher wont start washing but start light is flashing 11 times

The cause of the problem is an insufficient rise in water temperature during a pre-set time period. The heater fault-detection program that was added to the electronic control is designed to shut down the dishwasher if the board-test for proper water temperature rise is not sufficient.
The dishwasher run cycle was modified to add 8 minutes 45 seconds of heat at the beginning of the main wash cycle. If the inlet water at the thermistor is below 110°F, the thermistor looks for a water rise of 4°F. If the inlet water is over 110°F, the test is for an increase of 2°F. If the temperature rise is below specifications, the unit will drain and the clean light will blink seven times.
You will need to identify possible causes of insufficient temperature rise. These causes may include checking the wiring to/failure of the control, the heating element, the thermistor, the inlet valve, door switch, motor or capacitor. Make sure that water is not siphoning during fill. Once the heater fault detection is triggered and the condition resolved, the electronic control must be reset by initiating a special diagnostic cycle. Use the Product Tech Sheet shipped with each dishwasher — you’ll find it behind the kickplates — to identify the correct cycle sequence. The rapid advance cycle will not properly reset the electronic control....

Check to see if you have any switches on your dishwasher that could by pass a rinse cycle. Use a hotter temparture when washing, Check your water level,check your filters on your inlet hose top and bottom. When it gets to a rinse cycle you should hear it drain out and bring in fresh water. you could change to a liquid detergent. Dont over load your dishwasher. make sure you are using rinse aid and try adjusting it up one setting. Shiney glasses means your rinse add is working. NZL
