SOURCE: dishwasher keeps running

I have a similar problem. On the main program the dishwasher starts but stops during the cycle leaving the motor running. I have had the problem before and called a repair man out, he traced the fault to a broken wire leading from the control unit / timer to somewhere under the machine. The break was located where the wires went under the door, I would tend to suggest that this fault has re occurred and your fault may be the same.

SOURCE: Siemens dishwasher, water supply interupted

I'm sure you disrupted the sequencing! If its full of water, drain it. If its got no water in it, then manually fill it! This should get you back into sequence and up and running.

SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher model : SHV4313GB/17 The

I have a SHV. My sink drain backed up, and the water accumulating in the sink then migrated to the dishwasher, through the drain pipe, causing the dishwasher to fill up and, it turned out, overflow a little. When I turned on the dishwasher, the water drained, but no new, clean water came through the hot water pipe. The drain just kept running, but nothing else happened.

Here's what happened. Under the main chamber of the dishwasher, by three inches or more, is a white plastic tray. It sits almost at the floor, and it may not be obvious that it's a tray capable of holding water. The overflow water spilled into that tray, which in turn caused a float in the far left side of the tray to lift (the way a toilet float lifts when the water fills in a toilet tank) and shut off the water intake valve (like the toilet float shuts off the toilet water flow). So long as that valve is closed, your machine will not run.

STOP: disconnect power supply at this point for safety.

To see the white plastic tray and thereby fix the problem, you'll need to take off the BLACK TOE-KICK (attached on my unit by two star-head screws at its bottom) and, possibly , the OUTER PANEL OF THE DISHWASHER DOOR (in my case, a custom wood panel (attached by a few screws through the inner side of the door, two screws that are accessed by popping off little--smaller than a dime size--covers on the sides of the doors, and then the door panel lifts up and out). (I took the outer panel off, but I can't remember if I would have had to reach into the white tray without doing so.)

Once you do that, you can see the white plastic tray. It doesn't come out--at least not without removing the entire machine--so try this. You can take your fingers and feel over and into the tray. You'll probably feel the water--I did. Look at the far left of the tray with a flashlight. Back there you'll see a flat, round, 3-inch diameter piece of white plastic sitting at the bottom of the tray. To its center is a generally U-shaped lever looking device, which, at its far left end, is connected to a red stick pointing up into the machine. When water goes into the tray, the float rises, causing the U-shaped lever to rise, causing the red stick to raise, which (though I couldn't see it) causes an electrical signal to run to, and shut, the valve for your water intake.

I took paper towels, and then a narrowly cut sponge, to sop up the water in the tray. I then took my shop vac and, using it as a blower, blew what little water was left right out. You might be able to use a hair dryer, but first sop out what you can or it'll take forever. Once you've done that, put everything back together and plug your dishwasher back in. My buttons are at the top panel. To reset, hold down the two buttons marked for clear drain for three seconds and release. You should be able to start up then. It took 15 seconds before the water started to run, but it did and the machine works fine again.

Interesting note: The valve that stopped the water from flowing in automatically opened once I got the water out of the tray. You don't need to reset the valve.

Good luck.

Introduction: This may work for your problem, but only if you're finding that you cannot get further water to flow into your machine. If your machine fills OK, then this ISN'T a solution to your problem. If your machine doesn't fill but your drain motor continues to hum for no apparent purpose, this may work.

Pump taking water away but is on when door open or closed and machine will not start a new programme


Hi.
Check for a contact on door lock switch. Also check connectors on timer control.

If the machine keeps working and pumping with door open, then the problem is either wiring, door lock micro switch, or electronic control.

The electronic control will be last part to be tested.

Poor washing quality and water left in the filters ets


My friend, that siemans is a night mare to open. Just done one recently. Anyway, looking at it simply, i would suggest you check the inlet water filter. if water is slow to come in it will cause this problem. Remoe the water pipe from the solonoid and look for sieve. clean it well retry.

Siemens SE25A266GB/22


Hello
Welcome.

You said, Hi My dishwasher programmer doesnt work, when i try to put the time in it will not let me go further thah 20 minutes or so, then if you run that time it sticks on 'one minute to go'. on opening nothing has been cleaned.

Need the model number and the year.
Try to turn off the machine and then turn off the breaker for five minutes and see if it resets the system.

Sounds like :
Defective Timer


The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a vol/ohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician.

Let me know how it goes.
