Sure, if the drain pump have worked four minutes, and the pressure switch has not been reset, then the dishwasher will shutdown all the loads, the alarm buzzer will ring for thirty seconds and the dispaly shows E2. After alarming the dishwasher pause for three minutes than drain water for 60 seconds.
Disconnect completely the dishwasher from power outlet, drain eventual water inside the dishwasher, wait 30 mins or so, then plug back machine into power socket.
If the Delonghi has still problem when you restart it, then probably the pressure switch or the acqua stop device, which start up and stop the drain pump, is probably faulty and need to be replaced.
Basically with codee2, if you get water floods in the dishwasher, is usually the pressure switch or the water inlet valve to be changed.
When no water or very scarce water comes inside the machine, then it is the pressure switch or the aqua-stop switch.
Start testing, and eventually changing the pressure switch , this is often the cause for such problem.

    Because it is not the pump, it is the pressure switch or the aqua stop switch.

    There is nothing to reset , and nothing wrong with the pump, do not get confused by Fixya way of working, just change the pressure switch or the aqua switch , servie manual is above.

Very often items will get lodged in the impeller of the pump and cause this problem. This is the part at the front of the pump where the water goes in and out - usually fairly simple to open inspect and clear any debris - often small items - coins washers etc.

What would cause my dishwasher not to drain?


not sure if you have posted the model number of your dishwasher.

There are several reasons for dishwasher not to drain.

1. faulty drain pump
2. clogged kitchen sink drain
3. drain cycle is not reached due to faulty dishwasher controller
4. clogged drain hose
5. the wash cycle is not completed due to heater not heating water - (try rinse cycle to confirm)

Happy to help if you can provide some details on when the drain cycle is not working. do you get any alarms on dishwasher..etc.

Water is not getting drained from the botom of the machine


Hi,

There are several possibilities as to why water isn't draining from your washer:

1. Blocked drain filter
The filter is usually at the bottom of the wash compartment. You didn't state which model of dishwasher you have, so please refer to your user manual for instructions for cleaning your filter. If you don't have a manual, please post back here with your dishwasher brand and model number for information on cleaning your filter and where to download a manual if one is available.


2. Blocked/kinked waste hose
Check the waste outflow hose at the back of the washer for any kinks or other damage. Also remove the hose where it attaches to your sink (or waste outlet) and check for any blockages both in the end of the hose and at the sink attachment. If there is a lot of dirt in the hose, it may be blocked somewhere further back.

3. Blocked waste disposal / sink trap / waste outflow
Make sure your sink is draining efficiently. Clean as necessary

4. Faulty waste pump
If all of the above check out, you may have a faulty pump. Please post back for further advice regarding this after completing the above checks.

BElectric

How do I find and fix the problem of one and one half inches of water left in the bottom is the dishwasher when the cycles are completed?


Hi,

Firstly, check to make sure the waste outlet from the dishwasher isn't blocked. Remove, the drain hose where it attaches to your sink and check both the hose and the sink inlet connection. If these are clear, make sure you sink is draining efficiently and, if your are using a disposer make sure this is clear as well.

If the waste hose and outlet checks out, turn the dishwasher power on, and open the door. At the bottom of the wash compartment, on the front left side is the float. Lift the float as high as it will go and see if the washer pumps out.

Try these tests first and post back with the results.

BElectric

My dishwasher does not work after 1 successful wash.


Hello,
I would check the drain hose is actually going into an open outlet,best thing to do is take out drain hose and direct either into a sink or bucket but keep hose up dont drop on floor or all water will run out.If it does not work It sounds as if there is a blockage in the drain pump.

Hope yhis helps.

I have an old Maytag dishwasher, which came with the home we purchased 20 years ago. i am wondering how water efficient it is; it still works, but I also frequently find it with dirty water which has...


It is as efficient as any dishwasher made today. It is also mechanically better than most made today. Keep it running as long as you can.
Under the sink find the dishwasher drain line,using a piece of wire or string tie the DW hose up under the sink so that there is a rise in the hose from the disposal drain outlet.This way drain water will not go back down the hose.

Dishes smell like wet dog hair when cycle ends


There is a product called " Dishwasher Magic " to clean, deodorize, and disinfect dishwashers. Hardware, appliance parts, and possibly grocery stores should carry it. It comes in a rectangular 12 once bottle.
Also, check to see that the drain hose loops up higher than the outlet into the drain so no water will run back into your dishwasher from the drain or disposer.

Bosch dishwasher model #shu33A


your dirty water backed up into the washer (which it shouldn't do) and probably clogged something in there,..i would recommend getting it flushed out somehow, not sure how,.....next time, your washer drain hose should go up under the sink as high as possible and then back down to drain,....this settup makes it hard for drain water to go back into washer,....it's instructed in any dishwasher manual
