Question about AEG Dishwashers

1 Answer

Hi I went away on holiday and my dishwasher AEG 50800 was in perfect order. When I came back after three weeks it does not work. It was not in use while I was away so I don't get how come it is not working now .It does start up but its like the pump is just not kicking in. Ihear water running but the blades dont move and nothing seems to get washed, any ideas. Or is a new expensive pump my only option? My Husband seems to think a seal might have gone. Can a seal go while not in use? Thanks

It's worth looking under the machine. There is an overflow area with a float switch which sometimes fills up and it stops it working

How do i fix a Whirlpool wfs1071bw which has just suddenly stopped working after 5 weeks of being idle? was perfectly fine before i went on holidays!

No, it is not common to fail in that way. I suggest that you check the breakers to make sure that they weren't shut off while you were away. I hope that is all that is wrong. There is always the possibility that there was a power surge that damaged the machine, but I've never seen that happen to a device that was not on, and I would think that other electronic devices would also be damaged. I hope this helped. Dan

Had a Samsung DMT800RHS dishwasher installed by Sears 2 weeks ago. Used it approx. 4 times. Worked well. Today it doesn't turn on. None of the "touch-type" buttons on the console work. Home...

Hi. We have the same problem. Dishwasher was installed about 3 months ago. There is an easy 'temporary' fix.

Completely turn off the dishwasher by flipping the circuit breaker to the off position. Wait a couple of seconds, and flip the circuit breaker back to the on position.

The dishwasher console must be getting into a bad state and not sensing the console panel buttons. The circuitry in the dishwasher is never really "off" as some amount of power has to be "on" to be ready to sense the touch panel. Turning the circuit breaker off and back on likely resets all the functions and makes the unit operable. We have been operating the dishwasher this way for about a month now. Luckily for us, the circuit panel is 3 steps away from the dishwasher...but this is getting old.

Hopefully this solves your problem ... reply back here one way or another...if this turns out to be a common problem & solution,it will give me more faith that Samsung will be convinced of a problem when I call them after the holidays.

My dishwasher is a AEG 40850, will not heat and dry the disches?

I had this problem too, and was able to fix it. There is a generic problem with AEG dishwashers of this type, caused by the bad solder joint of a relay on a circuit board. Solution:
1. Disconnect mains power then open dishwasher and remove the 8 or 10 screws that hold the inox plate onto the door.

2. Gently peel away the inox plate and you'll have access to a white plastic box at the top of the door where the pushbuttons are located.

3. Undo the 4 plastic clips on the sides of the white plastic box and you'll have access to an electronic circuit board. Note the order of the 6 or 7 wire connectors along the edge of the circuit board and then unplug them. The circuit board is now only held by a flat plexi connector. Leave it attached.

4. Gently turn the circuit board over and look at the solder joints. You should see one or more dodgy solder joints. Use a soldering iron and some extra solder to redo the joints.

5. Put it all back together in reverse order to above.

This is a known problem (that no one knows about).

Error code 30

i fixed the problem by tipping the machine over slightly, as suggested by other members, about a pint of water came out the bottom and it now seems to work perfectly.

C3 error means that there is water at the bottom of the dishwasher. Unplug the dishwasher, slide it forwards and push it back. So it stands on the 2 back knobs. Do this atleast at a anle of 45 degrees. You will see water flowing at the floor.
If this happens often you have a leak somewhere. Time to cal the technician then.
