NEFF Dishwasher S5433X0GB/12

The dishwasher seems to have an electrical fault? It turns on automatically when I switch it on, before I close the door, but does not draw water, even though water tap is on. Once I close the door, the door latch does not appear to have any effet on door switch and wash cycle does not carry on, just circulating the water on the disposal tray. Can you pls. identify what might be the problem?

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:

Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Main tub seal Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

  • Lower rack

  • Spray arm

  • Spray arm support

  • Wash/drain impellers

Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.

Door gasket or seal Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

SOURCE: Neff dishwasher door problem.

The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem.

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not go thru wash cycles

if the water is not draining at all in any of the cycle it is probably the discharged line at the bottom of the pump has become blocked. there is an access panel at the bottom of the dishwasher which will allow you access the line. take the line off of the fitting , use a set of vise grips to remove the fitting from the base of the pump.You will probably find corn or rice lodged in the diaphragm within the fitting, remove debris and reinsert the fitting and hose. Hopefully this is helpful to you.

Light panel fully lit stopping program selection and start does a electronic part need replacing

I would suspect the user interface panel.

Most dishwashers can be tested thusly:

Turn off power to the dishwasher at the circuit breaker box. Take apart the Dishwasher door and unhook the cable from the User Interface panel to the main control board. Then, turn the power back on and close the dishwasher door so it latches. The drain pump should go on. If it doesn't the main board is bad. If it does, it's the user interface panel.

Why won't my dishwasher register that the door is closed?

Hi your probably got a crook or faulty micro switch which is linked in series with the control circuit that registers the programme to wash. In simplified terms the switch is stuck in an open circuit configuration and won't allow the wash programme to commence as a safe guard against water splash when the door is open.
check for correct door alignment and listen carefully when you close the dishwasher door to hear if the micro switch clicks. If it does not suggestbyoungetbit looked at by a professional because the time involved to pull it all apart just is not worth it because it could be more than just a micro switch. That's just a primary fault that can occur. If you monitor what the dishwasher does when you first switch it on, many models indicate the fault condition from the control panel which you can search readily from the net. Best of luck with it but if in doubt get it looked at professionally. Cheers

Deactivate childlock on fully integrated neff dishwasher

If door won't close and you don't have a child-lock, just push the door closed a lot harder than you normally would - NEFF manual says to do that, and it worked for me! I think it just forces it to engage and 'releases' the catch, as after that it closed with just normal pressure applied.

I have neff intergrated dishwasher, but the door does not seem to stay on. It has two fixings at the bottom and two at the top. Any ideas?

When you open the dishwasher door you will see three screws along each edge. You need to remove the middle screws and replace them with longer ones that will go into the door front as well.

Neff dishwasher trips the electricity

It could be faulty wireing in the dishwasher connection or you could have a leak in the washer causing the wires to get wet. I would have an electrician have a look at it.

Adjusting the door on a neff dishwasher

I have the same problem with my newly installed Miele integrated dishwasher. The door does not stay open when you are trying to load dishes. I heard that there is an adjustable internal mechanism to adjust the tension on the door. But, I am still working on solving my problem.
