Open Question

Blanco dishwasher Hi. Saw your answer on the Blanco dishwasher. We have same problem. Dishwasher makes all the pump sounds it used to, but does not start to drain at cycle start, and then no water comes in. read the manual again and think we may have been washing up - ie sinks plugged. Could this have triggered something. You mentioned something about a "micro switch" could you tell me where would this be?. We have a BFDW 650 S. Thanks, Angie

    Hi I have a blanco BFDW 670s which is 5 years old and when i turn it on to start a cycle it sounds like it's working but wont bring water into the dishwasher then it stops after only after a couple of minutes. Had a a repair man out and he said there is a large plastic moulded part on th left hand side of the dishwasher which senses if the dishwasher is full of water. Appartently it's clogged up and to replace it with labour will cost $400. all the hoses have been checked and are clear

SOURCE: Dishwasher is not cleaning dishes.

you need to check to see what the temps of you water going into the unit is. it needs to be atleast 120 degrees. if not your unit may be waiting to heat the water, until it does then it wont go into the next cycle. it could be the heat cycle is not working so that would cause the unit to not advance.
let the unit run thru the place you think its stopping, but not more then 2 hours. if its not advancing then you might have a bad heating element.

SOURCE: Water Won't drain fro the dishwasher model Blanco bfdw650s

If you "Lower" the hose to the bucket and it "drains" you are just using gravity to remove the water. The pump may be helping a little but if you raise the hose up and the water stops coming out, it's a good indication that the pump is bad. Unless the place you are attaching the hose to is plugged up, you need a new pump or a new impellor. Since the motor is good, try to get a replacement impellor, that the thing that moves the water. One other thing, you did say how well it washes the dishes? If the impellor is bad, it probably doesn't.

Why would my blanco dishwasher keeps power cycling?


Hi Scott, yes is the short answer. most electronics today have a set current for operating motors usually for under load conditions worst case. If there was a blockage or filter restricting the flow the motor will pull more current which will be detected by the motor circuit.
If this were not the case the power to any motor would be unlimited and would simply burn the motor out. Check the sump or pump and the drain filter. Tim

Hi I have a Blanco dishwasher BFDw8 which is having poor wash results in the top tray I have tried all the trouble shooting things in manual. Investigated further by opening door during wash cycle several...


  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.
Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits, toothpicks, etc. Burned on food should be loosened before loading. Empty liquids from glasses and cups. Foods such as mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar, lemon juice and tomato products may cause discoloration of stainless steel and plastics if allowed to sit for a long period of time. Unless the dishwasher is to be operated at once, it is best to rinse off these food soils. Load racks so that large items do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening. If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer, be sure disposer is completely empty before starting the dishwasher.

Blanco dishwasher


Dishwashers do not usually complete the cycle if the water temperature is not adequate for the wash program selected. This could be due to inlet hot water not at correct temperature if dishwasher uses hot water or the heater or thermostat within dishwasher being faulty and not able to heat the inlet cold water to the right temperature. Try to run the dishwasher with the rinse or quick wash (low temperature) setting and see if it completes. Might help if you post the Model number in the comments field.

Blanco dishwasher error d06 faulty motor.


I have a Blanco BFD10X Dishwasher which had the same D06 error, being a Electrician i investigated the fault which Blanco report as motor over current. After testing the motor, i tested the motor Run capacitor and found it to be faulty, these capacitors are common to failure and will cause the pump to draw more current than usual.
A genuine replacement 2.5uf capacitor was quoted at $120.00, however i purchased a equivalent from RS online for $14.30 + delivery. RS P/N 769-4267
Dishwasher working fine again.

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.

Loud Humming noise every time we run the dishwasher


Hi, I had this exact same problem. In my situation it turned out to be the pump that pumps out all of the used water. It was rubbing up against the floor so that every time it turned on it made a loud vibrating sound. I just reached under the washer and put a piece of rubber between it and the floor and it solved the problem.

good luck!

I saw this post because I am considering buying the same model you have. Other than the noise problem you have, what do you think of it?

I have a Blanco Dishwasher and the water will not drain away from the machine after it has completed a cycle, how do I get it to drain?


hi, there are 2 pumps on a dishwasher, it sounds like the drain pump on your unit is not working, it may need to be replaced. . if it is in warranty contact the manufacturer, if not contact a local appliance repair company. in the mean time you can use a wet/dry vac to get the remaining water out of the unit.
