Question about Dishwashers
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?

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

This is typical of a water leak onto electrical connection OR the electrical element has shorted internaly . Check this with a Ohm meter and itshould show the problem

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.
