This is caused by the Anti-Flood device at the base of the machiene being activated. This device detects water leaks and is a polystireene float / micro switch that puts the machiene in pump out mode only. You need to determine where the leak comes from (pipe or perforated hose pin hole or pipe clamp etc.) If you tilt the washer and some water comes out from the bottom it is a clear indication that there is a small leak.

I have an AEG F86070VI and need to de-activate the anti-flood system. Can you help?

Hi barrym_oneil,

The easiest way to do this is to tilt the dishwasher back about 45 degrees. The water in that compartment should fall out from the back. Remember the towels!

Kind Regards :-)

Panel lights started to flash & F3 appeared in dislay. Made a buzzing sound that would only stop when turned off at the plug

I copied one of the solutions to a problem that appeared on your web site. Pulled the dishwasher out, ladeled water out of the salt reservoir, tilted the machine at 45 degree angles backwards,forward and sideways then poured boiling water into the salt resrvoir, left it to stand overnight, it was working as normal the next day.

Thanks to your website I have saved the cost of a call out and repair bill.

I have AL01 on my dish washer eny ideas?


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

C3 error means that there is water at the bottom of the dishwasher. Unplug the dishwasher, slide it forwards and push it back. So it stands on the 2 back knobs. Do this atleast at a anle of 45 degrees. You will see water flowing at the floor.
If this happens often you have a leak somewhere. Time to cal the technician then.

Pump contiues running as soon as you switch on carrys on running with door open and after re set not filling timer working

Yes tipping the unit on its back at 45 angle for a few minutes worked. However, when the dishwasher was pushed back under the surface the problem re occured. We solved this by altering the feet at the back so that it was just slightly lower at the back and it works fine again. Excellent advice on this page. Has definately saved us a call out fee.
