Stuck in drain cycle


Hello Vicki. If the drain pump sounds like it is running and will not shut off, you are on "flood mode" There is standing water in the bas pan of the dishwasher. sometimes water can get down there due to an overfill, or not draining completely between cycles. You can either wait for 2 or 3 days and the water will evaporate and should run normally. You can remove the bottom access panels and either vacuum out of dry the water (REMOVE POWER FIRST !) . If it does not clear on its own or if removing the water manually does not work, then the float switch will need to be replaced that activates the flood mode. There is a small possibility you have a bad control .

The lights of my Viking dishwasher VDB200SS are flashing and do not stop even if I reset the unit by pressing start for more than 4 sec. The pump is running when I connect the unit to electric power for a...


Hello Jo, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post, I suspect you mean the drain pump is running as is common for Asko built machines such as your Viking with this scenario/error. I have good news...It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.

What this usually means is the control has indicated a overfill. All the indicators flashing is the error code for overfill/drain error.


**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**

The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. There will likely be water present.

With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal operation...it should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump...
(it could mean a faulty drain pump or a inlet water valve, so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)

**The float is primarily the last ditch safety to prevent disaster in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit activates the pump-out non-stop
letting you know to service or call for service to the unit**

Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Hello,

You either have a blocked drain line drain pump, or water is in the base pan. behind the toe kick is a base pan that will catch water if the flood switch is activated this condition will occur. I know this dishwasher very well can help you fix it yourself.

if you open the kick plate, you'll see the pan below the motor and check for leaks. The leaks will trigger the sensor to pump water out. Once you dry out the pan, the pump motor will stop and you should be able to reset the program.

MODEL#DFUD042PSS STAYING ON DRAINING CYCLE


The draining cycle remaining on is an indication that the anti flood sysyem (polystireen float / micro switch) at the bottom has been activated via a water leak. This anti flood system puts the pump motor on and shuts the inlet water. Dry the water at the base / find the leak or blocked pipe causing the water and this should rectify your problem.

What does error code f14 mean on a zanussi bwm129


I believe that is a indicator of flooding of the machine. I also believe if you remove the bottom front panel you will find a sheet of paper with fault codes. While the front panel is removed, unscrew the cover on the water pump filter, check for restiction.Have a shallow pan to catch water and towels to absorb water that will be present

Hi Both drawers show error F1 flashing beeping with rinse light on and both pumps run after power is applied to machine


F1 error indicates flood switch in base has activated, meaning machine has leaked. This causes machine to drain continously, and can only be stopped by switching off power. Not easy to fix if you don't have experience- bottom drawer has to be removed to access flood switch, then machine needs to be test run and checked for leaks. Best to call the professionals!!

Dishwasher pump keeps running


This is caused by a water leak into the base pan,it will trigger the anti flood and the machine will continously drain out even with the door open,you need to establish what is leaking,if you leave the appliance standing for a few days it will start again as the water will evaporate however if the fault returns you will definetly have aleak on the appliance which will require further investigation.
