Lights will not turn on


I experienced the same problem. One day the lights on the unit weren't on. The wall outlet that the dishwasher uses had power because the Garbage Disposal that also uses the same outlet had power. Turns out the power supply cord also tied to the water supply hose and had over the months (due to the constant slapping or dancing of the water hose whenever the electrically controlled water valve was opened or closed), had caused the female receptor prong inside the wall outlet to loose continuity with the male prong of the dishwasher power cord. It might have been a defective wall plug all along but the wall outlet worked for months before the problem arose. Anyway, after replacing the wall outlet the dishwasher again has lights and works fine.

No water will enter the dishwasher, There is no problem with the water supply or the supply line. The water flows from the supply line to the dishwasher connector but does not enter the dishwasher.


The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. Make sure it's not clogged. There is a screen on the inside of the valve, this sometimes gets clogged up with debris. Check to see if you get power to valve when unit is put into operation may take a couple minutes to start a fill. If you have power and it's not clogged up replace the valve .If you have no power to the water inlet valve check float switch. This can be done by checking the continuity. Here is a video checking the water inlet valve and the float switch. It may be a different model but the testing procedure will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for most models. All parts come with installation instructions.

Hooked up new dishwasher and no water to it when turn it on.


Sounds like you're a real DIY (do-it-yourselfer)....great!

Try these steps:

Turn off the water supply valve to the dishwasher. Disconnect the water to the fill valve. Place a shallow pan under the water line and open the water valve slowly. If you have water flowing up to this point, check the power to dishwasher. If no water, check the water supply and anything that might keep water from flowing.

If you have water, then look at the inlet screen to the water fill valve. Sometimes, when a new water supply is hooked up, some sedimentation occurs and gets into the inlet screen at the water valve. Check this and clean it out as needed. Not all units have these screens.

Make sure you have removed any shipping plugs or other items that could prevent the unit from operating.

It runs for a minute then beeps and says that water pressure is plugged


Get a 1/4 nut driver or philips head screwdriver and remove the screws from the lower front of the dishwasher.
Then lay on your side and with a flashlight.
Turn the dishwasher on as if you were going to wash a load.
See if the motor is turning when the unit trys to come on.
If it starts then stops, like its trying to turn then there is something st oping the impeller, If its just not getting water to fill, then shut the water off and unscrew the water line from the dishwasher and test to make sure there is good water flowing in the supply line. Sometimes teflon tape can block water or rust may have built up inside the supply L at the dishwasher.

Good Luck!

Water coming in stops short of the proper level - not enough water comming in to clean properly. I have to add water.


most dishwashers fill level is determined by time.
If the water pressure is to low, or the flow is restricted by sand or rust cloging the water valve, the unit will not fill with enough water to clean the dishes.

if you are willing to try, and you can use basic hand tools, you might be able to clean a clogged water valve.
first make sure the ELECTRICAL POWER to the unit is up-plugged or turned off. turn off water supply.

Valve is located under unit most can be reached by removing panel on lower front of unit. disconnect water pipe at valve and look for a filter screen inside the valve, remove it, clean it, reinstall it. now reconnect water pipe, and turn water and power back on look under unit and check for water leaks before reinstalling panel.

No water supplied


float could be stuck . pull the float inside the dishwasher up and down then try it. could be a bad pump, or angle stop is closed or clogged. if float doesn`t work. turn the water supply line off located under the kitchen sink. make sure it`s off by turning the hot water knob on your kitchen faucet. unplug the unit also under the sink. take the bottom cover off and look for the supply line that goes into the water pump. unscrew the supply line. get a bucket and turn the water supply back on just alittle to see if tou get water coming out. if you do it`s not clogged. so it`s either the pump or it`s the timer switch 9 out of ten times it`s the timer switch. good luck.

Spring on door is broke. do I need to pull


The door springs are located at each door hinge and connect to the frame body along each side of the dishwasher. If you remove the lower toe panel directly below the door you should be able to see them. However, in order to access them to repair/replace you WILL need to pull the dishwasher out to get to them in most cases. You may not have to remove the dishwasher all they way, however, if you have enough slack in the water supply line, power cord and drain line. Just follow these steps:

1. Turn off the main power or unplug dishwasher.
2. Remove lower toe panel.
3. Remove the screws under the counter top holding the dishwasher in place.
4. With the screws removed, carefully pull the dishwasher out. Watch through the toe panel opening to see if you have enough slack in the power cord and water lines.

You may have enough clearance to locate the springs on the each side to make your repairs. If not, you will need to turn off the water supply and disconnect the water supply line on the left hand side inside toe panel. You may also have to remove the electrical lines inside the junction box inside the toe panel. It is usually located right in front for easy access. Make sure the power is turned off at the breaker, or the unit is unlugged before servicing the electrical supply. For reinstallation, the color codes are as follows:

BLACK - HOT (120 VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN (or Bare) - GROUND

If you have any questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dishwasher not starting when door closes


What your saying is suggesting a water supply issue. The Model number you've given can not be found on the Neff website.

You will need to disconnect power, turn the water supply off (under sink or behind dishwasher), disconnect the water line, put the end of the hose in a bucket or cup, turn water back on slowly and make sure water flows. Turn back off. If water flows -

Then check that there is not a restriction in the water solenoid valve. If you know how to use a multimeter, check the water valve solenoid for continuity.

Plug the unit back in, and initiate a wash cycle, and watch for voltage applied to the water solenoid valve. If you get voltage, you should hear the valve open.
Power the unit off, connect the water line, and repower the unit. Check again if water does or doesnt flow.

Let me know what you find.

No water coming in


Check the float.
There is a float inside the dishwasher but you can't see it. The small dome in the bottom has a float inside that activates a switch underneath by a plunger. Sometimes this float gets stuck in the up position. Take the bottom panel off and look directly under the dome for the switch and the plunger that activates the switch. Push this plunger up to see if it moves freely. If it moves then you need to check the switch then the water valve solenoid with an OHM meter. Next, use the meter to see if the timer is sending power (110) to the water valve.

If everything is good to this point then check the water supply. Turn the water supply off, disconnect the water line from the dishwasher water valve, run a small amount of water into a pan.

Hope this helps.
