Water flooding out

We are having a very sporadic problem w/ our Asko dishwasher leaking water out of the unit.  It has happened three times over the past month and only when I have started the unit and left the house or went to bed.  I return and the kitchen floor is flooded.  To clean it up I fill three or four bath towels with water. Before this flooding, we had to reset the unit underneath twice but those two times did not result in any outside flooding.  Now it is flooding and we do not have to reset the unit.  Any suggestions?

    You can hear the water draining fine at the beginning and when I find the unit full of water, I start another cycle to drain the water out of it and it drains fine.  I don't think it is something with the drain, I think it has to do with the fill water not shutting off periodically but I don't know. What do you think?

Grease in sump blocks black rubber hoses going to water level pressure switches, this causes input water to overfill & flow out the front door, down the front splashguard, into the sump, where the float switch enables the pump only, which continues to pump water from inside the machine, even if empty
Remedy, UNPLUG FROM POWER
Empty tray, Clean sump, Remove 2 of 5mm dia black hoses from 2 pressure switches, & use a compressor to blow out muck from hoses, refit level hoses, refit all shield panels & test

Hi KellyW,

 

The dishwasher drain hose may be clogged.  When the dishwashr starts up can you hear the water running into the Sink faucet drain. If not inspect the hose that attaches to the Sink Drain for restrictions.  Also in the bottom of the dishwasher you should have a filter.  If this filter is clogged you cannot expel water.  Clean the filter.

Drain pump wont stop running


Most likely is activated overflow system.
This means water leaks under the dishwasher and is activated drain pump to prevent flooding. The simplest is to lean on either side the dishwasher so if there is water on the floor, that's it. Now you need to identify and repair the leaks. You can not be excluded that a defective triac by driving the drain pump placed on circuit board. It very rarely happens and some brands signals a failure by display or LED diodes .

My asko d1706 dishwasher doesnt let water in. As I


Base pan full of water means there is a water leak. So your machine has a flood detector (floater) and it prevents feeding further water into the machine to prevent the flooding. I think this is the reason. You have to fix the leak.

Just to make sure first clean the base pan water and try it. It will work until again water leaks and activate the floater (flood switch)

Overfilling fault


I believe the washer has had a flood type situation.there is normally a flood switch in the very bottom of the dishwasher right at the very floor,if water get into the bottom tray it floats a piece polystyrene foam wich triggers a little micro switch wich will run the pump continually & show Overfilling fault at the same time..The water in the tray needs to be mopped out with a rag or spunge so that the styrene foam can drop back down.The blockage you had may have caused this flood situation some how.The overfill fault was probably due to the washer not pumping out,So that may be ok now that you have cleared the blockage.hope this helped.

Asko D3230 dishwasher pump will not turn off, with main switch on


This is a anti flood activation. It is a safety device (polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer) that keeps the drain motor running due to water leak / spill detection. Dry the water and rectify the leak (normaly pipe or clamp leak) and this should solve the problem.

My asko D1796 dishwasher has turned itself to 'flood mode', how can I fix this?


Try tipping it over to get the water out of the base that is activating the flood switch, removing the kick panel and drying with towel and hair dryer. If there is no majour leak you should be back in action.

Hope this might help

Leaking dishwasher


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
