DD603 2 Drawer Flashing Fill Warning

All cycles, after machine empties at start of cycle, it switches to fill mode, but does not complete the fill as (after 3 mins or so) the unit powers off and flashes the fill warning. Had a similar fault on the top drawer and the engineer replaced the Salt Unit. Just done the same with teh bottom drawer (same symptoms), but the unit still fails to fill correctly.

Poss solenoid issue or contol unit?

Any help appreciated.

What is the float switch


I have no real experience with float switches on dishwashers, but have with some in humidifiers. It's a piece of styrofoam on a narrow metal stick that lifts when the appliance fills with water & lowers when the water empties. If this gets stuck on something, like a dishwasher rack, the unit won't fill or empty the water & the cycles won't work properly. Take a look & see if there is such a thing hung up somewhere in the dishwasher. If you can loosen it, your dishwasher should work again.

Hi My dishwasher seems to get stuck in a cycle when you start it - it lets water in for around 20 secs - then pumps it out - then lets water in for say 20 secs then pumps it out - over and over and...


Hello Gerard,

This is an overfill 'fault' generally caused by one of the following:

1. Faulty or incorrectly installed flow-meter
2. An airlock in the fill chamber
3. Faulty float switch (less likely)

There are some simple checks you can do to determine the cause of the fault and hopefully solve the problem without replacing any parts - no tools required at this point.

First, open the door, pull out the lower basket and locate the float. This is the 'mushroom' in the base of the washing compartment:

belectric_200.jpg
With the washer empty of water, make sure the float is fully lowered. There should be a gap of 2-3mm between the float and the base of the washer and you should be able to lift it about half an inch / 12-15mm. When you lift it, it should fall when you let go. If it's raised when the washer is empty, it should not rise again on its own when pushed down.

If the float seems to be working correctly, the controller is receiving erroneous signals from the flow-meter that the washer is full or overfilled. This causes the washer to pump out - then resume the fill cycle because the water level is too low to start the wash. If this is caused by an air-lock, there is a simple trick to clear the air-lock and, therefore, the fault.

1. Start a wash cycle and keep you finger ready on the power switch on the control panel.
2. As soon as you hear the pump start during the fill cycle, interrupt the cycle by pressing the power switch to the off position
3. Wait for about 10 seconds, then switch the power on again.

The machine should resume filling rather than pumping out. Keep your finger ready on the power switch and repeat steps 2 and 3 until the washer is filled and the washing cycle starts. If you can get the washer to run a cycle using this trick, you may not need to do anything else, but you may need to repeat the procedure described above at the start of the next few cycles.

If the washer does not resume filling and continues pumping when you switch the power on again or you have to repeat the procedure above at the start of every wash cycle before it will run, you will need to check the flow-meter and, most likely, replace it.

I'm happy to provide step-by-step assistance with checking and replacing the flow-meter if required, but please check the float and try the simple trick above first, then let me know if you need further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

My Diplomat dishwasher ADP8352 keeps stopping


Switch off the machine at your plug end and switch ON.

Check incoming water flow. Check and fill rinse-aid liquid in the dispenser. Check dish washer salt dispenser and fill.

These are the only actions an user can try.

Our dishes have white film on them. 5 repairmen have said they have no idea to the cause. We have tried everything vinegar, rinse aids etc. Could it be a pressure problem due to a plumbing default in...


on an empty cycle fill the machine and use some C.L.R or other lime and scale remover in the machine and let it wash through the cycle.

try putting more water in the tub once the fill cylcle has completed and the wash cycle starts.Make sure the incoming water temp is at least 120 degrees.

if there is no change in the washing of the dishes
you may need to replace the main wash pump. if there is a change then you need to replace the fill valve or increase the water pressure to allow more water in the unit during the fill cycle

Fill Fault appears during wash cycle.


Is the filter in the hose where it screws onto the tap clean?, if this is okay then most likely the valve.

As soon as you turn on power it starts to fill


It will look to the wash tank float to determine the water level and temperature. If the machine is empty, it will fill first. before letting a cycle start.

Dishwasher filled with water even though cycle was finished.


the same problem accures with some types of washing machines,when you turn on the machine the control switch sends a signal to a valve on the mains water supply inside the back of your machine telling it to open the problem accours if you live in an area that has hard water because lime scale builds up in this valve so when you switch it off the valve is in the open position because of a lime scale build up, i would say it needs an new valve.adrian
