Question about Dishwashers

DISHWASHER- Model no: DW009

When I turn the power button on, it sounds like the DW is trying to empty even though theres no water in the main compartment.
Also, it wont allow me to chose a programme to run and it flashes E4 and beeps.

    Hi and thanks for a quick reply.
    Not sure exactly what the make is as I got it from B&Q, think it's just bottom of range basic dishwasher. All I can say right now is that it is a DW009. Sorry I couldn't be anymore help, hope you can help, running out of ideas.

    HI Pauldonp,

    Sorry to have messed you about, but it seems that I have been misinformed by a certain person where I purchased the dishwasher from.
    As it stands, the dishwasher is unbranded, which is why I couldn't give a make and model and why you couldn't find anything.
    It all makes sense now and I've managed to get a manual downloaded to me direct from supplier.
    Thanks for your help anyway.

    Hi ok ill have a look and see if i can trace the error message for you but from what you are explaining it sounds like the timer has gone or something on the board has gone the timers can be replaced but will need to be able to follow spec sheet and be able to understand circuit diagrams and no how to use multi meter.

    Its going to be difficult finding spec sheet without the make have you tried holding down the power button for 5 to 10 seconds and seeing if this resets the dishwasher this works on some dishwasher so give it a try and let me know how you get on ok

  • paul proctor Nov 29, 2007

SOURCE: DISHWASHER- Model no: DW009

I experienced exactly the same problem with this Model. The handbook says code E4 is an overfill problem and in my case because the filter had become blocked, water had somehow found its way into the base of the washer (where all the electrical stuff is) and activated the anti-flood device. The solution is to simply get the water out of the base. Making sure the unit was switched off at the mains, I removed the wooden kick-board from under the kitchen units and the screws securing the washer to the units. I then lowered the 2 front height adjusting legs so that the washer was slightly tilted down at the front. There are 2 black plastic access covers at the bottom of the unit which can be gently prised out and then use a cloth/sponge, removed all the water that had collected in the base. This cured the problem without the hassle of removing the washer altogether.

Dishwashers wont stop.


By unplugging the machine, and temporarily stopping the drain from operating, you have diagnosed that the issue is electrical and not mechanical. If it were a mechanical issue (something stuck in the drain, thus keeping it open) it would continue to do so, even when the power is disconnected. It sounds as though you may have an issue with your timer, which tells it when to advance to each cycle. It depends on your make/model of machine. I've worked on some machines that have a cam style, and if the notches are damaged, it will not advance properly.

Tip

AEG Electrolux Lavamat 50600 is not spinning here are a few work throughs


Download manual
First off that was a link to the online user manual. If this was the first time using the machine did you follow the recommended first time use procedure by following these steps:
Before using your machine for the first time
0 Slightly pull the detergent compartment out of the control panel.
0 Pour about 1 liter of water through the detergent compartment into the washing machine.
When this has been done the ?KO lock can function correctly.
0 Run a wash cycle without laundry (COTTONS 95, with half the amount of washing powder).
This removes any residues from the drum which may have been left during manufacture.

If you have used this prior to the problem occurring try this:
The issues for not spinning are numerous as to what may cause this and it appears to be a lot but most of it is rather simple :
If there is water in the drum you need to follow the pump out procedure and remove water in the drum. Then there may be a "Bend" in the inlet hose. If there is water reaching the drum this is the possible causes and simple to check:
Water is leaking out from under the washing machine.
Fabric softener is not added, compartment for fabric softener is filled with water.
Appliance does not spin, water in the drum.
Washing has not been spun sufficiently, there is water left in the drum.
Door cannot be opened.
The rinse water is cloudy.Possible cause
The inlet hose connection is not tight.
The inlet hose has a leak.
The drain pump cover is not tight.
Washing is caught in the door.
Suction cap in the fabric softener compartment is not correctly fitted or is blocked.
RINSE HOLD selected.
SOAKING program is terminated.
There is a "Bend" in the outlet hose.
Maximum pumping height (drain height 1 m from the position of the machine) is exceeded.
Drain pump is blocked.
The water drainage system is blocked.
The door is locked due to safety reasons
Probably caused by a washing powder with a high silicate content.
Troubleshooting these are the remedies:
Tighten the inlet hose connection.
Check the inlet hose and if necessary replace it.
Tighten cover by turning clockwise.
Abort the program, remove the washing caught in the door, start a new program.
Clean the detergent compartment, fit the suction cap on firmly.
Deselect RINSE HOLD.
Pump out water and set the main wash cycle as desired.
Eliminate the Bend ( it would not allow me to use the proper word here see manual.)
Please contact AEG Service Force Centre, it has a retro- kit available for pump heights above 1 m.
I would definitely try this as it appears to the reset procedure for this machine:
Switch off the machine and pull the plug out of the socket
I would say no less than 20 minutes
but do this while waiting further:
clean the drain pump.
Clean the blockage
Carrying out an emergency emptying
1 Warning! Isolate the washing machine from the main supply before the emergency emptying!
If the washing machine no longer pumps out the water an emergency emptying must be carried out.
Warning! The water, which flows out of the emergency emptying hose can be hot.
First allow the water to cool down before emergency emptying!
0 Put down a flat container to catch the water draining out.
0 Pull down the flap in the left corner of the base strip and remove it.
0 Release the emergency emptying hose from its holder.
0 Pull the emergency emptying hose out a little.
0 Place a container underneath to catch the water.
0 Release the plug of the emergency emptying hose by turning it anti-clockwise and pull it out.
The water will drain out. Depending on the amount of water, it may be necessary to empty the container catching the water several times.
To do this, temporarily close the emergency emptying hose again with the plug. When the water has drained out completely:
0 Push and twist the plug firmly back into the emergency emptying hose.
0 Push the emergency emptying hose back in a little and let it catch onto the holder.
0 Replace the flap in the base plate and close it. When the washing machine is completely empty, the ?KO lock can no longer function correctly. Therefore before the next wash pour in approx 1 liter of water (pour it in through the washing powder compartment)
steps to Clean the drain pump
1 Warning! Switch off the washing machine and pull the plug out of the socket before cleaning the drain pump!
0 First carry out an emergency emptying (see section "Carrying out an emergency emptying").
0 Place a towel on the floor in front of the cover of the drain pump. Surplus water may flow out. 0 Unscrew the cover of the drain pump by twisting it anti-clockwise and pull it out.
0 Remove any foreign bodies which maybe in the pump housing.
0 Check whether the impeller of the pump can be turned. (It is normal forthe pump to turn in steps.) If the impeller cannot be turned at all please contact your local AEG Service Force Center.
0 Replace the cover (insert the ridges on the cover into the guiding slots)and screw on tightly in a clockwise direction.
0 Close the emergency emptying hose, push it in and twist.
0 Close the flap. I sure hope this helps a few people especially the one who I posted this for initially. GOOD Luck! If none of these suggestions work then best to call AEG for servicing, I strongly believe that the Bend in the inlet hose or the drain pump most likely the culprit and or any one of the other issues may well resolve the spin malfunction as well as possibly the main computer may have been goofed due to a slight power surge which unplugging from electric and turning off water for 30 minutes is the basic reset procedure for most electronics ( not all ;but most) while working through these steps should not hurt a thing.

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on....


From your description, I doubt that the problem is door latch is the cause.
The first thing that a modern dishwasher does before it begins to fill with water is run the drain pump.  It appears that this DW is not progressing to the next cycle (inlet water) and because the pump runs even when the door is open, I agree that the controller card may have failed.
If possible, inspect all the wire connections (remove main power before you do this) ... if there is a loose connection, the controller could do odd things.
Good Luck!  Please report back what you find, OK?

Water won't go out of the dishwasher


Begin at your sink drain that the dishwasher drain hose connects to. Disconnect the hose and check both directions for anything plugging the connection.
Make sure the drain hose has not become "kinked"
(After you have emptied the water from the dishwasher) remove the lower spray arm and the filter in the sump area. Look for obstructions and remove all debris. Rinse the filter thoroughly and reassemble.
If you dishwasher has a timer on the front of the dishwasher that you can manually turn, start a quick cycle with no DW soap and empty.
Allow the water to run in for several seconds and then manually (slowly, gently) turn the timer knob until the DW should begin draining the DW. Listen closely for the sound of the pump motor running.Is water properly draining out of the dishwasher into the drain?
After you have done these things, please post back here and we can take the next steps. OK?

Bosch DW doesn't start/panel doesn't light up/but unit has power


Try to turn off the power at the circuit breaker box, leave off for 5 mins and then turn back on and try to see if the panel resets itself. It may work or it may not.

Empty water light stays on


Remove lower left filter,and washout under running water, reach into the opening and clear out all fluff and gunge, get a plastic bag tie or similar, and feel for and locate small hole at rear of compartment and poke clear with plastic
Make sure the air vents are clear back and front and try again, if still showing light then probably the float switch is sticking or faulty, this involves a complete strip down of dryer to fix.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Certainly sounds like the float is stuck in the over filled position or possible a bad float switch. Could also be a bad water fill valve - if you can blow air through it when removed then you need to replace it. You can follow this link to troubleshoot your washer, but note that its not exactly for your model - http://www.thermador.com/replacementparts/main/pdfs/SHU-complete-troubleshooting-guide.pdf Good luck!
