Hygena Dishwasher doesn't fill with water

Hi

I have a Hygena Dishwasher, an APL8224/3 'select' built in Dishwasher.

It doesn't put much water into the machine when the cycle is on, perhaps a litre at most. If it is switched on the heater rails gets very very hot and eventually blows a fuse.

I was wondering if there was anything I should try before calling out a repair man?

I'm a service engineer with regards to office equipment, so don't mind taking things apart!

Many thanks in advance,

Jonathan

Sorry that is a UK model and wont have any access on how it works.. but you can check the water level probe (if Equipted) clean it off.......... the elements should only come on once the probe tells the board it has water dont let the element dry fire they will burn out fast when not in water

Whirlpool dishwasher wont wash


if the bottom tub is filling with water but not washing the issues is with the wash motor, some of this model use a start capacitor that can fail, if it has a capacitor on the side of the motor it may have failed but are difficult to diagnose but are cheap to replace so worth trying, if this doesn't help or if it doesn't have a capacitor then the fault is with the wash motor.

Fdd914 dishwasher error code A10 appears and its not in the booklet


Hi, the interpretation for error code A10 is: A10 = fill solenoid valve triac closed/open circuit - check valve/ operation - machine drains until level switch resets + 30"

Now, to try and solve the problem yourself: Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher & remove the hose, Run the machine for several minutes in a normal position. Turn the machine off, reconnect the fill hose, turn the water back on then turn the machine back on.

If this doesn't solve the problem, then you'll need to call a service person.

Bosch SHU 5302 Machine doesn,t fill with water.


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

SMEG Dishwasher - Water fill level is too low


Hi, I found your problem stuck here from one year ago.

I will post my solution the same, as reference for you and more users with same problem, apologies.

Re: smeg dishwasher fails to fill with enough water to sucessfully wash. It does put some water in.. but nowhere near enough.


Before checking parts inside the machine, ensure that water is coming from the faucet at the back with regular pressure.

To start check the water level sensor.

This is usually a floater sensor located on a side inside the dishwasher.

Check if water level is working properly, if the floater is getting stuck then that is the problem.

If the water level is OK, then the responsible is usually the inlet valve, or clogged inlet lines.

From description it looks more like a faulty water level.
