My hotpoint dish washer aquarius is 4 years old leaves a sandy grit all over dishes water not spraying the top,done all the usual stuff run out of ideas

Posted on Mar 09, 2008

I have a similar problem.

We have and AEG Favorit 675. The pump keeps going even if it is off. I have re-read the manual 5 times and all it says is that the Aqua Lock is activated and to power down the machine. This I have done numerous times.

Any ideas how to de-activate the aqua lock?

Smeg Dishwasher not circulating water


Sound like the thermostat doesn't know what the water temperature is set at.

It could be the wash pump. Check to see that the float on the bottom of the DW is unstuck by gently picking it up and setting it down { It is shaped like a mushroom and controls the water level in the bottom of the DW }. Did it move freely?

Smeg DI 409CA Dishwasher - Doesn't wash properly, tablet doesn't desolve and cycle lasted all night


Hi,

The first thing is have a look at the instruction manual from HERE

If the dishwasher is not washing properly then please follow these steps:
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.
As you said that the water builds up at the bottom see If it comes out 'foamy' then liquid dish soap is getting introduced into the dishwasher. Liquid dish soap is different than automatic dishwasher detergent. liquid dish soap needs to be COMPLETELY rinsed from anything that has been pre-soaked prior to putting in the dishwasher. after a couple of regular cycles the foam will go away. Nowadays liquid dish soap is also 'concentrated' or 'ultra concentrated' which doesn't help.


If further this does not solve your problem the the only solution is to get it repaired.

Goodluck..

Dishwasher cavitates. I have a Smeg DI612CA9


Does the drain hose loop up to the top of the unit before going to the sink drain? If it goes down first it may be siphoning or draining by gravity.

Hi I have a SMEG D1612CA9 intergrated dishwasher. Last night during the cycle the pump which takes the water away has remained on stopping the cycle continuing. The first light has come on and whenever you...


Hi
You need to disconnect the power and the hoses.
Also unsrew the machine from the cabinet to pull it out.
When you have pulled the machine out, put some towls on the floor and tilt machine on its back. You will notice a lot of water come out the base of the machine.
This will reset the flood switch which has been triggered.
Reconnect the hoses while the machine is out and run a cycle. You have a water leak so you need to find out where the leak is from. In Smeg dishwashers, the most common item is a burst drain hose. Normally where it comes out the back of the machine, the hose bends and tears as it pushes against the back wall.
Remove the from kick panel and look inside the base for leaks while machine is running.

I've got a Smeg DI612CA9 D/wahser. When I turn it on it pumps down as normal but won't stop pumpimg down even when the door is opened. If I leave it for +hrs it will allow me to start a wash cycle, but...


Hello Myles,

Your description suggests water has leaked (and is probably still leaking) into the bottom of the dishwasher under the wash compartment and is tripping the anti-flood protection system. The pump continuing to run even with the door open would confirms that the anti-floop protection has been activated, although the problem could be a fault with the float-switch for this safety feature.

I suspect you have a leak. When you leave the washer for a few hours a certain amount of this water will evaporate. This allows the float to fall deactivating the float-switch so you can start a wash cycle. However, as soon as you start a cycle, more water leaks into the bottom of the washer and the anti-flood protection system trips again.

You really need to have a look under the wash compartment and check for the presence of water there before you do anything else. If there is water in the bottom, pull the washer out and tilt it backwards about 10-15 degrees to allow any water to run out. You should then be able to use the washer again, but if there is a leak, the problem will return fairly quickly, so this really needs to be investigated fully.

If you pull the washer out to remove any water in the base, I'd suggest putting some old towels behind the washer before tilting it, to absorb any water that runs out. I also suggest getting someone to help you tilt the washer as they are heavy and the bottom can slide out when you tilt it.

You should also switch off the dishwasher and the power supply and close the water check valve ot disconnect the water supply hose before attempting this

Hope this helps.

My bosch shx46a05UC/14 will not shut off. I can open the door and the dishwasher just keeps going?


Are you please able to confirm what exactly is happening when you mention "dishwasher just keeps going".

Is it in a wash cycle and throwing the water around through the wash arms or do you just hear a pump running with water sitting in the base. Most likely there is a leak into the base and the auto stop circuit is trying to empty the dishwasher by running the drain pump. I would suggest you check the base of dishwasher for leaks.

I have a neff dishwasher 5 yrs old enr number is s5543x2gb/17 and fd number is 8210 and the pump is constantly running.I have tried the reset option in the manual and this does not stop the cycle or pump...


The reason your pump is running continuously is that the "anti-flood" protection system has been activated. This is normally due to water having leaked into the bottom of the dishwasher under the washing compartment. It could also be due to a faulty anti-flood microswitch, but the first problem is more likely.

In the bottom of the washing compartment there is a "float". Look for a dome/cylindrical shaped protrusion rising from the floor of the washing compartment. With the dishwasher on and the pump running, push down on the float and the pump should stop. If it rises back up and the pump starts to run again, then you have a leak somewhere in the bottom of the washer. If it stays down or it already down as far as it will go, then it's more likely to be a faulty switch.

Either of these potential faults can only be fully confirmed by removal of the dishwasher from under the counter and removing some of the panels to get access to the components under the washing compartment.

After testing the float, if the pump continues to run, you should to turn off the power and the water supply to the dishwasher. The problem then needs to be investigated by someone who is competent to identify the cause of the leak or replace the float microswitch, depending on which is the problem.

Smeg integrated dishwasher continually washing - won't move to drying cycle.


you should check the heating element. if the water is not hot enough, the timer will not advance. crack open the door mid-cycle. let the water stop flying around. then open it all the way up. if you don't get a big ball of steam, you have an indication that your heating element may not be working properly. this is not too hard to check the resistance with a multimeter and then replace, if necessary. good luck

My Smeg dishwasher DWF 64 SSE won't go onto rinse or dry


Easy one first try this to see if it helps

Water pre-heating
Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
