SOURCE: is my bendixx 1000 autowasher hot or cold fill

Look at the top left rear of the cabinet, there you will see the connections for the inlet valve(s), if there is only 1 then it is a cold fill only, if there are 2 connections , then it is hot and cold fill.
They are normally marked H and C.
Plz leave feedback for this solution.
thanks.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Could be a couple of reasons- dirty filter and water not hot enough.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
Heater
It could be that the element is coated in calcium. I suggest you run the contents of a couple of sachets of proprietary limescale removing powder/fluid through it. The most efficient way is to put the contents in an empty washer and pour a kettle of hot water into the drum then leave overnight. In the morning run just a spin; the water mix will then go through the drain filter and drain motor impeller blades, doing absolutely NO harm whatsoever, in fact some good!
You could also consider repeating the action ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

DD603 top draw cycle getting stuck on 73min??????


Normally if you started the rinse cycle with water already in the base of the dishwasher it will immediately go into circulating the water through the wash arms. Do you hear the wash arms running when the washer is stuck at 11mins? Also when the washer is stuck at 73 mins are the wash arms running all the time or do you hear the pump operate at some stage?
If you have the dishwasher manual available make sure the water pressure setting is at HI or LO depending on your rated mains water pressure.

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Thats strange, F10 means no cold fill.
Ok back to basics, you can check the pressure switch by taking off the tube and gently blowing into it and I mean gently, you should hear a click if its ok - make sure the other end is'nt blocked, blow it out with a cycle pump near the drum end

Machine died


It could be a lid sensor issue, due to the fact that pressing on the door seem to temporarily fix the problem. Then again, honestly im really not familiar with washers that old, so i don't even know if it would have a lid sensor, much like older cars don't have seat belts, so im not exactly sure when they started introducing lid safety switches on washers. In any case, i would try and check for a lid switch/sensor and if so, try finding a replacement for it.

Timer stuck on cycle will work if manually moved


The timer has a small motor that advances it through the cycles. It either works or it's DOA. unfortunately you probably have to replace the timer complete.

Neff 5644 - how does it work!??


"e" is economy - ignore this there is a selection of spin speed - most people use the fastest half load is what it says - most people wash a full load so ignore the temp dial just selects wash temp. for normal washes set to 40deg can't remember the symbols on program dial but think they are fairly self-explanatory this machine is just a washer remember to check the filter regularly
