SOURCE: wash cycle

Check first that the filter located inside the machine (on bottom) is clean. In case it clean - The problem is with the pump. It could be a blockage between pump and the tub, or just a defective pump (The pump takes suction from the tub and forces water up through the spray arms, which spray the dishes. The water then simply drops back into the tub for recirculation). Good luck !!

SOURCE: no water in my dishwasher

That is a problem with the water lever switch, that is actuated by a floating sensor. The floating sensor is probably stuck , and activates the drain pump immediately.

See here for more help There's no water entering the machine

Dishes do not get cleaned


Look at the spray arm to see if any of the holes are plugged with calcium build up. Check to see if the arm pivots freely and nothing is blocking it from turning. If all these things look okay, check the filter screen at the bottom of the dish washer to see if it is partially obstructed. You may have to disassemble the filter to see inside it. If all seems ok, then look at a work water pump impeller which will reduce the pressure going to the spray arm.

Smartdrive 601-U, product 93913, Serial number MLL 6333121, 6 Kg. The problem started when hot water hose kept cutting out many times during filling time. Now, the panel is still lighted but water no...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Two problems- water feed and possibly blocked drain filter.
Water feed-
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

Drain filter
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

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!)

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.
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.

If these have assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

FH IS FLASHING ON THE WASHER AND IT HAD STOPPED WORKING ONLY 5 MNUTES INTO ITS CYCLE


Hello,

The FH error code means the computer on the control board didnt detect any water entering the washer..sometimes it doesnt detect the water entering because the filter screens on the water inlet valve are clogged with sediment and water is having a hard time entering the washer.

The filter screens can be checked by turning off water at the faucets and disconnecting the fill hoses from the back of the machine and pop the scrrens out of where the hoses connect at the washer and check for blockage in them. If they are found to be clean check the water coming out of the hoses before connecting them back to the washer...if the screens are clean and water pressure is good out of the hoses the part of the washer called the FLOW METER would need to be replaced

Dishes not clean after running. Dishes and glasses have a white residue on them after drying. Water is turned on and seems to ok. When I open the washer after the wash cycle starts there are several...


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more informatiion.

Change grohe faucet washer


Hi, Ensure that all water is switched off from the mains incoming tap, and hot water turn off tap under your boiler if that's the system you have.
Next open both levers of tap to ensure no water coming out, then remove heads with adjustable spanner. (Anti clockwise). Take to nearest plumbers merchant and they will supply new washers. It is a good idea before putting heads back in! get some de-scale liquid and spray them until lime-scale removed.
Screw heads back in turn off both taps and re-instate water supply. Then open both taps to clear any air in system.
And that's it.
If you find the heads are in bad order then you can buy replacments cheap enough, Just ask your merchants advice.
Hope this helps Thanks Paul.

Karcher 320H i have the same pressure coming out as i put in from the tap, the motor is running ok


You have an air lock in the pump and or piping.
  • Open all drain cocks and remove the spray hose
  • Connect the inlet water hose and turn it on slow
  • allow water to run from all open ports for 2 minutes or so
  • leave the water running - close drains start motor
  • Shut down reconnect spray hose restart
  • You should now be smiling

Optima G2430 Miele dishwasher with intake/drain flashing light


Hi,
F13 is an inlet fault.
First the unit drains and then fills with water. When the unit has intially drained open the door and manually fill the unit with water, about 5lts. This will then allow the dishwasher to go to the next step which is to circulate the water. If this works ok then the water tap is defective, water inlet valve is defective or the electronic unit is not sending the signal to activate the valve. The water inlet valve is the white square box attached to the tap. Remove this and check the filter and make sure water comes out of the tap.If ok then remove the bottom panel of the unit under the door. On the right hand side there is a 2 core cable with a male and female connector. Unplug this and check for voltage from the electronic when the unit goes to fill with water. If there is 240v then the electronic is ok. You will then need a new waterproof system from Miele.

Not draining and washer arm not spinning


Have you cleaned the drain filter? The symptoms you describe indicate that the filter are totally clogged.

Cleaning filters should be done every other week to maintain good function in dishwashers, it is not uncommon people forget that.

You access the filter by removing the perforated stainless steel plate at the floor of the washer tub, usually there is a round plastic knob in the middle that you turn counter-clockwise then lift it up. Underneath this plate you will find the main filter, take it out and clean with a soft brush under running water.

Good luck!

No washing


Hi, mine was getting to this point. After cleaning the filter all went back to normal. If you have not tried it, remove the three phillips head screws on the front bottom panel. You will see a plastic piece on the right hand side. You can unscrew it with your hand (drain water into shallow cake pan). Once water stops coming out, remove filter all the way and clean the pens, pencils, change, lots of lint, etc... out and put it back in. All should work well after this. Thanks, Greg
