I have an AEG OKO FAVORIT 6040 dishwasher. It

I have an AEG OKO FAVORIT 6040 dishwasher. It recently stopped part way through a cycle. None of the controls appear to work but there is the constant sound of a pump which only stops when the machine is disconnected from the plug. I guess this is the anti flood device. Is this likely to be a fault or can it be easily rectified?

SOURCE: Need to know how to re-set the anti-flood device

I managed to clean the filter inside the dishwasher and drain a little residual water. I then re-plugged in the appliance and the anti-flood device seemed to reset and I have n't had any problems since.

This seems like the anti flood system (polystireen float / micro switch) at the base of the washer is triggered,\. This puts the washer in pump out mode and stops inlet of water via the inlet solinoid. Dry the water on the base and then check for any water leaks. (pipe leak

Thanks to all.
What we couldn't work out is what is actual mechanism of anti-flood triggering, and how therefore to reset it - and why all these other fixes work - but then it occurred to us, that problem is when water gets into the base and can't get out.
Our problem was that water inlet at top of washer came loose so water ran down outside the drum but inside the dishwasher, into the base. We tried the tipping method but this just moved water around and I think there must be sensor there which, if it stays wet, leaves anti-flood triggered.
This makes sense because other high level overflows from drum discharge into base - so if it was to overflow, it goes into sealed base only, wets the sensor and triggers anti-flood.
Our solution was patience - tipped it fully on its side, pointed a hot air blower into it for hour or so, then left it overnight. Tipped it back next morning, water which had run into side panel ran out, so it was upright with its base dry - and (touch wood) it worked like a charm.

C3 error means that there is water at the bottom of the dishwasher. Unplug the dishwasher, slide it forwards and push it back. So it stands on the 2 back knobs. Do this atleast at a anle of 45 degrees. You will see water flowing at the floor.
If this happens often you have a leak somewhere. Time to cal the technician then.

Good luck with the new house. Hope the dishwasher works well for you.

Try to run it with dishwasher cleaning kit (no utensils) to make sure everything is clean - that way you will get more life out of it. The cleaning kit (usually Finish) is sold in the supermarket in the detergent section.

This sounds like the anti flood system has triggered. This does put the washer on a pump out mode and the outlet pump runs all the time. The trigger device is a polystireene slab in plastic bracket with miro switch at the bottom of the washer. Dry the bottom out and check for water leaks (hose clamp / hose) and this should solve the problem.

How to Start And use ???


I have the 6040 model, and it has a number of buttons on the left, and a dial on the right.

if yours is the same, then you need to select a program using the buttons "Normal" for example, then turn the dial to just after the top A selection (I mean just after this, by a few mm, it clicks past the A slightly)

this will then do a pre-was, and the main wash you have selected.

The other buttons are fairly self explanatory, like half load for a half load, pre wash to only do a pre wash etc...

Hope the helps!
