How to fix anti flood error on F60860


Error "i30" means that water remains in base because leakage or overflow. In this case, in order to prevent flooding, drain pump running continuously.
When we talk about AEG dishwasher, drain pump works even the power is turned off (must be connected to the wall outlet, otherwise anti-flooding system will not work).
Remedy: you should first remove the water from the bottom of the dishwasher and determine leakage.

If you work around the dishwasher, you always take care that appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.

Hoover D73 Dishwasher water comes comes and goes, no washing


this is a problem with the timer programme at the end this can be replaced but can be tricky to do your self the water should drain freely out of dishwasher if you feel confident enough taking the back off try finding the drain pipe because uselly these get blocked with either the food off the plates and it can get blocked with limescale if it hasnt been used for a while then the mess has buitl up and set hard if you can get the drain pipe off try running some bleach through it but make sure you clean all the bleach off before putting it back on otherwise everything will smell of bleach this is the only sollution it does sound like the drain p[ipe is blocked the dishwasher will cut off if the water raises in the bottom it does this as a safety feature to stop your kitchen from flooding it is more than likely a blocked pipe so check this properly and the drain in the bottom of the dishwasher as the water shouldnt just sit their it should be draining all the time but i would say clean all pipes properly before you do anything else hope this is some help......................

My diplomat dishwasher wont drain


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.



First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Dishwasher: BOSCH SHE43 - pump keeps draining


Your dishwasher is stuck in flood mode. Bosch dishwashers are built with flood switches located in the bottom base pan of the dishwasher. The flood switch is connected to a rod that activates a small interlock switch. When water enters the base pan on a Bosch dishwasher, a Styrofoam puck lifts the rod, activating the flood switch.

When the flood switch is activated, the dishwasher will go into a no-fill, only-drain mode. The drain motor may also run with the door open to the unit. This is definitely a sign there is water in the base pan. This can be caused by the drain being clogged. There are two ways to fix:

1. You can uninstall the dishwasher and tip it forward to about a 45 degree angle to drain the water out of the base pan. (This is probably why Ian Bint's solution fixed the problem.) Be sure to put a towel under the dishwasher first so that the water is soaked up in the towel instead of going all over the floor. Once you've drained all the water out of the base pan, reinstall the dishwasher and begin a cycle. If it fills and runs, you are good to go.

2. You can also unplug the unit, then remove the kick panel at the bottom in the front. (It's attached with two screws.) Then get some old washcloths or small towels and reach into the base pan below the dishwasher to soak up the water. The pan is directly behind the plastic base panel rim. Once the pan is empty and dry, your dishwasher will no longer be in "flood mode" and will run properly.

If the base pan keeps refilling with water and the no-fill problem returns, there is definitely another issue, such as a clogged drain. At this point, you need to decide whether to invest in an expert evaluation by a certified Bosch repairman and make the necessary repairs, or buy a new dishwasher.

Diplomat 8352 water not draining caused kitchen floor to flood


your pump is obstructed. take out pump and clean it out. Your filter might be plugged too. As soon as it floods it also can be a leaking hose from the pump.
just open the machine and you will see the pump straight away.

Dishwasher does not drain completely


the cycle was interrupted and now it will not drain completely. I cannot find the instruction manuel, and when I push the "clear/drain" button I hear the motor start but then when the light goes off the water is still in the bottom.
