Baumatic dishwasher won't start

Hi, I have a Baumatic dishwasher Model BHD6 that won't start. It worked fine till my girlfriend opened the door before it had finished a wash and now it won't work. I choose the program and start but after closing the door nothing happens.....Is there anyway to reset the dishwasher?

Many thanks

Re: Baumatic dishwasher won't start

Had this problem with the Baumatic 13. Perhaps the door is not closing properly. Make sure you push the door hard in the top centre. It should beep once and then start after a few secoonds.

Hi, I have error message 20 on BDW14 Baumatic. Dishwasher won't start. What does it mean? Thank you..

Error 20 is not a listed error in Baumatic dishwasher. They only mention E1 to E7.

There is a reset procedure for random errors which can be viewed at this page.

Please check if this helps.

Hi - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may not start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Door will not shut.No error code.Door keeps springing open!

Hi there
If this door was mine I would get the dishwasher -doctor to come and fix the door. On the other hand if you have a good friend who likes repairing things he might talk to your machine.

Baumatic BFD60SS - Tablet not dissolving

this happened with mine and it turned out that the top shelf was too low, so this meant the spinning arm was being stopped by my plates. When the machine is fully loaded check that the spinners can move freely. if they don't then you can move the top shelf up a level. hope this helps

BAUMATIC BFD47SS dishwasher won't start

Sounds like the water inlet solenoid valve is not opening. Not easy to get at to test, but if water is available at the hose inlet connection as you say there isn't anything else stopping water entering the wash cabinet.

Shouldn't be a lengthy repair - so I'd recommend getting a quote.

Something went snap!

same thing happened to me. The door spring broke on hte right side. Got the baumatic people to come out to fix it at a fixed cost of £79. I think the spring part is only £3.
